Episode Eighteen

The Couple Next Door

by Shari Lapena
Narrated by Kirsten Potter
With more twists than a twizzler, Shari Lapena’s thriller will leave you at the edge of your seat. If The Couple Next Door were a how-to-guide it would be called: What not to do when you have a baby. Step 1 would be not leaving your new bundle of joy at home ALONE while you go next door to drink, and step 2...well just repeat that first step until your child is old enough to scream when being kidnapped. YES. KIDNAPPED! Everything is not as it seems in this neighborhood and you’ll want to keep your ears on alert until the very last second.

Episode Seventeen

Interview with Imogen Church

Beyond the Headphones
A narrator with a phenomenal voice is like having a million friends to spend your evening with (even if some of those friends are evil). Audiobook of the year nominated, Imogen Church is a true vocal extraordinaire. She’s talented, hilarious, and after spending 30 minutes with Imogen, we really wish she could narrate our lives. With over 50 audiobooks recorded, her ability to create auditory magic is unprecedented. Imogen has quickly become one of our favorite narrators, and we are so ecstatic to have had the opportunity to chat with her!

Episode Fifteen

Pax

by Sara Pennypacker
Narrated by Michael Curran-Dorsano
Happy New Year, everyone! With the dawn of 2017 upon us, we chose to listen to Pax by Sara Pennypacker. A coming of age novel with voices that alternate between Peter, a clumsy boy with confidence issues, and Pax, a spritely fox who’s goal in life is to protect “his boy.” Human and animal growth are equally explored through loss, friendship, and the occasional fox yip. Get your tissues ready, ya’ll, this one’s heartbreakingly gorgeous.

Episode Fourteen

Winter Street

by Elin Hilderbrand
Narrated by Erin Bennett
We hope that everyone is having a fantastic holiday season! This week’s episode, we wanted to listen to a book that dealt with the trials and tribulations of family during the holiday season. For us, Christmas means gathering together with family for dinner, gift opening, and good conversations--a similarity we found between us and the Quinn family in Winter Street. However, we have to admit, though, the Quinn family has quite a bit more drama to their holiday than we do. So we hope you break out the eggnog, put on some slippers, and settle next to a warm fireplace to listen to us talk about a family we fell in love with in this wintery modern classic!

A Merry Frost

by Geraldine Allie
Narrated by Jim Curtis
For this bonus episode, we reviewed a fun twist on the North Pole story. Merry is the daughter of Santa Claus, and she is not the biggest fan of Christmas, much to the disdain of her parents. But soon after being tricked to come back home for the holidays, she meets a man that sends chills down her spine (get it?). The clichés are obvious, and the title of the book gives away most of the story, but it’s still an interesting glimpse into the family dynamics of good ol’ St. Nick.

Episode Thirteen

The Christmas Shoes

by Donna VanLiere
Narrated by Paul Michael
You all may be familiar with the beautifully emotional song by the same name. This short story of The Christmas Shoes was written as a way to elaborate on the song that makes us all think about what is important in life. It’s a story that connects you with the patrons in the song and gives you more insight into the lives of the people that fatefully cross paths in a department store. Bake some cookies, heat up some hot cocoa, and grab your tissues because this audiobook will make you want to ugly cry into your stocking.
