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.

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!

Holiday Greetings from Sugar & Booze

by Ana Gasteyer & Mona Mansour
Narrated by Ana Gasteyer, Maya Rudolph, Full Cast

It's a magical time and one that Ana Gasteyer and Mona Mansour explore in their full cast audiobook: Holiday Greetings from Sugar & Booze. We got some 90s & 00s SNL not ready for prime time KEY players bringing us drama, love, and laughter. Told in both letter and party atmospheres, this book left us with tears in our eyes and wanting to hug everyone! If you're looking for a SHORT sweet little concoction you HAVE to give this audiobook a listen! We promise you won't wake up with a hangover! --This is the audio from our latest BookTube video.
