December Staff Recommendations

Thank You for Listening by Julia Whelan

A quirky romantic comedy from author Julia Whelan. An uplifting novel regarding a former actress who's fortunately able to transition from screen acting to audio book narration. After a tragic accident changes her dreams, she finds a path of self-acceptance, discovery and love when she reluctantly agrees to narrate one final romance novel. ~ Erin

The Family Game by Catherine Steadman

I loved it. It reminded me of family game night when I was a kid. Only this family plays for keeps. How many will survive until the end? ~ Leslie W.

Sisterhood of Sleuths by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman

Absolutely delightful middle grade mystery! If you loved Nancy Drew mysteries growing up, this one is for you. ~ Leslie M.

Hidden Pictures by Jason Rekulak

This is a mystery about a nanny for a shy boy who likes to draw. His drawings turn from everyday things to strange disturbing ones. ~ Bonnie

I'm Glad My Mom Died by Jenette McCurdy

A memoir of family, faith and childhood stardom. Add in a dark sense of humor, terrible coping skills, and a complicated relationship with her Hollywood driven mother, friends and food, and you'll get Jenette's very open and honest memoir about her over and underwhelming acting career, starting from age six. A great story and listen! Read by the author herself. ~ Ashley
