As a big audiobook fan, I always look for a great listen as the weather becomes warmer. We get to be outside more often, listening to a compelling audiobook that accompanies your hike, walk, gardening…whatever your favorite spring season activity! So if you are looking for that pleasant spring listen, you can go wrong with the following!
Someone Else’s Shoes by Jojo Moyes
Narrated by Daisy Ridley
Anything by Jojo Moyes is always a treat to listen to but this recent one by Moyes was such a treat to listen and gave me the opportunity to not only be engrossed in another winner by Moyes but also gives me a chance to break away from reality for a bit.
Enchantment: Awakening Wonder In An Anxious Age by Katherine May
Narrated by Rebecca Lee
Many of us feel trapped in a grind of constant change: rolling news cycles, the chatter of social media, our families split along partisan lines. We feel fearful and tired, on edge in our bodies, not quite knowing what has us perpetually depleted. For Katherine May, this low hum of fatigue and anxiety made her wonder what she was missing. Could there be a different way to relate to the world, one that would allow her to feel more rested and at ease, even as seismic changes unfold on the planet? Might there be a way for all of us to move through life with curiosity and tenderness, sensitized to the subtle magic all around? (Credit: Penguin Random House)

The Blackhouse by Carole Johnstone
Narrated by Joe McFadden & Eilidh Beaton

The Museum of Ordinary People by Mike Gayle
Narrated by Witney White
Still reeling from the sudden death of her mother, Jess is about to do the hardest thing she’s ever done: empty her childhood home so that it can be sold. As she sorts through a lifetime of memories, everything comes to a halt when she comes across something she just can’t part with: an old set of encyclopedias. To the world, the books are outdated and ready to be recycled. To Jess, they represent love and the future that her mother always wanted her to have.
In the process of finding the books a new home, Jess discovers an unusual archive of letters, photographs, and curious housed in a warehouse and known as the Museum of Ordinary People. Irresistibly drawn, she becomes the museum’s unofficial custodian, along with the warehouse’s mysterious owner. As they delve into the history of objects in their care, they not only unravel heart-stirring stories that span generations and continents, but also unearth long-buried secrets that lie closer to home.

Atalanta by Jennifer Saint
Narrated by Beth Eyre
When Princess Atalanta is born, a daughter rather than the son her parents hoped for, she is left on a mountainside to die. But even then, she is a survivor. Raised by a mother bear under the protective eye of the goddess Artemis, Atalanta grows up wild and free, with just one condition: if she marries, Artemis warns, it will be her undoing.
Although she loves her beautiful forest home, Atalanta yearns for adventure. When Artemis offers her the chance to fight in her name alongside the Argonauts, the fiercest band of warriors the world has ever seen, Atalanta seizes it. The Argonauts’ quest for the Golden Fleece is filled with impossible challenges, but Atalanta proves herself equal to the men she fights alongside. As she is swept into a passionate affair, in defiance of Artemis’s warning, she begins to question the goddess’s true intentions. Can Atalanta carve out her own legendary place in a world of men, while staying true to her heart? (Credit: Macmillan Audio)

A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard
Narrated by Lauren Irwin
The book came out a few years back but the audiobook makes its debut this year and I have to say, I cannot wait to give this one a listen. I am big fan of Barnard’s work and I have been waiting to read this lovely romance between a girl who doesn’t talk and a boy who is hearing impaired.

Disconnected: How To Stay Human In An Online World by Emma Gannon
Narrated by Emma Gannon
Disconnected is a little book about reclaiming our humanity in our increasingly digitized, monetized world.

Disconnected examines these topics and offers tangible tips and advice for those of us who might feel a little lost and are looking to find our real-life selves again. (Credit:

Yellowface by R.F. Kuang
Narrated by Helen Fraser
Authors June Hayward and Athena Liu were supposed to be twin rising stars. But Athena’s a literary darling. June Hayward is literally nobody. Who wants stories about basic white girls, June thinks.
So when June witnesses Athena???s death in a freak accident, she acts on impulse: she steals Athena’s just-finished masterpiece, an experimental novel about the unsung contributions of Chinese laborers during World War I.
So what if June edits Athena’s novel and sends it to her agent as her own work? So what if she lets her new publisher rebrand her as Juniper Song, complete with an ambiguously ethnic author photo? Doesn’t this piece of history deserve to be told, whoever the teller? That’s what June claims, and the New York Times bestseller list seems to agree.
But June can’t get away from Athena’s shadow, and emerging evidence threatens to bring June’s (stolen) success down around her. As June races to protect her secret, she discovers exactly how far she will go to keep what she thinks she deserves. (Credit: William Morrow)
