âAfter growing up readingÂ Thirteen Reasons Why, having the chance to work on Jay Asherâs new title, What Light, was such a joy. The Christmas Tree farm setting only made the romance even more adorable, and I know that this title will stay top-of-mind even as the holiday season ends.â âBrienna Garcia, Marketing Assistant
âA great follow-up to the originalÂ Aftermath,Â Life DebtÂ made the wait for Episode VIII a little bit more bearable. Marc Thompson delivers an amazing voice performance, as always.Â I canât wait for the next audiobook!â âRobert Guzman, Marketing Manager
âThe Mothers was so much fun to work on and so exciting to see it finally go on sale!Â This thrilling novel kept us on the edge of our seats the whole way through and will definitely continue to stay on the top of the lists well into 2017.â âVictoria Tomao, Senior Marketing Manager
âMy favorite audio this year is The Girl Before by Rena Olsen. Itâs brilliant how the narrator is able to capture the opposing voices of the alternating chapters, between the girl in the present and âthe girl before.ââ âMegan Mills, Assistant Editor
âMy favorite audiobook of the year has to be Lauren Grahamâs Talking as Fast as I Can. I admire how much Graham loves her work and her best-known character, Lorelai Gilmore. Itâs a joy to hear about her journey from Ms. Gilmore herself.â âWinnie De Moya, Social Media Marketing Manager
âYou Canât Touch My Hair by Phoebe Robinson, read by the Author.Â From the second this audio started I was on board. With Jessica William’s reading of her foreword and tons of hilarious ad-libbing from Phoebe, this is an essay collection that’s made for audio! Phoebe’s voice is so entertaining and refreshingâher stand-up comedy skills really shine in this narration. So many laugh-out-loud moments! You Can’t Touch My Hair is not to be missed by podcast listenersâespecially fans of 2 Dope Queens and The Read! It’s also a great listen for anyone who enjoys witty and incisive social commentary.â âKristen Luby, Marketing Associate
âThe audiobook edition of Liane Moriartyâs Big Little Lies just came out this month, and it is just as engrossing listening to it as it was reading it. The shocking twists are brilliantly done, and itâs one of those rare books that you canât stop with until youâve finished it.â âTaraneh DJangi, Marketing Manager
