AudioShelf A Podcast for AudioBookWorms


So we've noticed something that is really interesting about most books in the thriller genre: they revolve around women. Either the woman is overcoming a tribulation, the story is based around a woman, or the woman is being stalked by some shadowy figure getting ready for MURRRRRRDERRRRR. We know it's not all thrillers, and we also LOVE when thrillers do this, but we are also curious about where the genre is going and if we'll see more men becoming the apple of gaslighting eyes in the future. --This is the audio from our latest BookTube.

We are feeling REAAAAALLLLL job envy today! Every now and then there comes a time when the main character (or minor character, lbr) in a book has a job that just makes you go "YES! THAT'S THE JOB I WANT!". 9 times out of 10 those jobs pay like garbage and wouldn't actually bring you any real joy, but HEY! It's fun to dream! --This is the audio from our latest BookTube.

Someone We Know

by Shari Lapena
Narrated by Kristen Potter
We LOVEEE a good Shari Lapena novel! In Someone We Know, she's got us convinced that she keeps a tiny town model somewhere in her basement where she gains her writing superpower by creating and destroying little plastic people's lives. And with Kristen Potter behind the mic to narrate this neighborhood story, she's got a suspenseful "who-done-it" filled with characters you'll love AND hate. Trust us.....The worst character ever exists in this books and Kristen Potter does an amazing job bringing her nosy annoyance to life! POWER TO NARRATOR! --This is the audio from our latest BookTube.

The Silent Patient

by Alex Michaelides
Narrated by Jack Hawkins, Louise Brealey
ALERT // This episode DOES contain spoilers, but there's ample warning before we begin our spoiler chat. The Silent Patient was the hottest read of 2019. A suspense that takes you into the psychotherapy world of Theo and the silent mind of Alicia. There's a huge twist in this novel that Britney didn't see coming, but Brad called from the midway point. We think it's because his profession gets him in the mind of people, so he can see right through them. If you figure out the twist, or not, The Silent Patient is definitely a read that you won't be able to put down. If you grab the will NOT be disappointed by the amount of energy and characterization that both narrators inject into this novel. It's emotional, unstable, annoying...AKA: absolute PERFECTION. Check out our review and pick up a copy of The Silent Patient now! --This is the audio from our latest BookTube video. If you want to see us live, head on over to our YouTube Channel and subscribe!

A Heart So Fierce and Broken

by Brigid Kemmerer
Oh. My. Gawd! The book of the year is here! We feel like we've been waiting an entire year for this book to come out....BECAUSE WE HAVE! A Heart So Fierce and Broken is the second installment in Brigid Kemmerer's The Cursebreaker series. Much like the first novel (A Curse So Dark and Lonely), we follow two characters through an adventure that takes them through some dangerous terrain, however this time we aren't following Harper and Rhen. Nope! Brigid is giving us insight into the likes of Grey and newcomer Lia Mara. It's a beautiful crafted world, with magnificent storytelling that you just HAVE to pick up. It's a YA lovers MUST READ! -- This is the audio from our latest BookTube video. To see us in action head to our YouTube Channel and SUBSCRIBE!
