i survived pearl harborI Survived the Bombing of Pearl Harbor, 1941 by Lauren Tarshis – $0.87

If you have a non-fiction lover, these short middle grade books about big historical events are really fun and high action. They’re a perfect fit for reluctant readers, especially those with low patience for made up stories. (All the books in the series are on sale!).

Escape!: The Story of The Great HoudiniEscape!: The Story of the Great Houdini by Sid Fleischman – $1.63
3 hours 29 minutes
I read this one maybe a decade ago and couldn’t stop telling Bart ALLLL about it – I certainly knew who Houdini was, but I didn’t know much at all about his life. And it’s a life full of surprises, mysteries and half-truths. I loved every page of it. (Full review here)

Nothing Else but Miracles by Kate Albus – $2.41
7 hours 17 minutes
Her book A Place to Hang the Moon, was my favorite read aloud from 2022, and this is her newest historical fiction title. This one is also set during World War II, following three siblings in New York City, as their father leaves to fight in the war. I read it aloud to my girls and we all loved it!


false prince bookThe False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen – $2.68
8 hours 14 minutes
Sage is a young orphan boy who is taken in by a devious nobleman who is selecting orphans to impersonate the prince of Carthya to prevent a civil war. All of my girls have loved this series and have re-listened to it on repeat.


a night dividedA Night Divided by Jennifer A. Nielsen – $2.68
7 hours 11 minutes
We love Jennifer Nielsen at our house (The False Prince series has been a hit with Bart, Ella and me!), and her historical fiction doesn’t miss either!


Peter and the StarcatchersPeter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry – $2.80
8 hours 40 minutes
This is such a fun twist on the classic story of Peter Pan. I mean, I’m already a massive fan of Dave Barry and it is just perfection! If you love fractured fairy tales check this one out and the audiobook, read by Jim Dale of Harry Potter fame, is especially fun. (Full review here)


bunnicula audiobookBunnicula: A Rabbit-Tale of Mystery James Howe – $2.97

frindleFrindle by Andrew Clements – $3.30
1 hour 40 minutes
Andrew Clements is just a master of the school story, and this is his most popular one, about a boy who wants to get his whole school calling pens “frindles.”


By the Great Horn Spoon bookBy The Great Horn Spoon! by Willard E. Lape – $4.11

We listened to this Gold Rush story on a family road trip and every last one of us – from my four year old to my husband was INTO it.

This book is a great book for any elementary schooler! With a fun story about a cat, mouse and a cricket, this trio is hard to not love with all of their adventures!



a single shardA Single Shard by Linda Sue Parks – $4.95
3 hours 12 minutes
When I was working more seriously on reading all the Newbery winners, I picked this one up, knowing exactly nothing about it. A story about potters in 12th century Korea might not sound thrilling but this book is PHENOMENAL. I listened to it again with my girls a few years ago and we all were entranced. I may have gotten teary in the driver’s seat multiple times.  (Full review here)

from the mixed up files of basil e frankweilerFrom the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by J.L Konigsburg – $4.97
3 hours 45 minutes
I had read part of this book but never finished it as a child. We first listened to it as a family and it was a DELIGHT! I just loved every bit of this book about two siblings that run away from home and live, undetected, in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.


best read-aloud books

The Adventures of Nanny Piggins by R.A. Spratt – $5.05
4 hours 7 minutes
If Ella had to pick a favorite book, I’m pretty sure this is the one she’d choose. It was so funny that she requested I read it and then I promptly included it in the 2017 Summer Reading Guide.



zoey and sassafrasZoey and Sassafras collection by Asia Citro – $5.82
6 hours 11 minutes
A series with magical animals, science, and mystery? My girls were INSTANT fans of this book series where Zoey and her cat sidekick Sassafras help a magical animal using science. 6 books in this collection.


the view from saturday bookThe View From Saturday by Jenna Lamia – $5.94
4 hours 41 minutes
This is the first book I remember reading as a child and thinking “This is a really well written book.” This one is definitely for kids more in the middle grade age range. There are four main characters and it follows each family and how they intertwine. It’s a great one!

the never girls collectionThe Never Girls Audio Collection, Volume 1Kiki Thorpe – $6.85
8 hours 6 minutes
My girls have listened to this series a bazillion times in the last few years. It’s a series by Disney about four best friends who get whisked off to Never Land with Tinkerbell and her fairy friends. This collection includes the first six books.


For Adults

edenbrookeEdenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson – $1.57

I read regency romance . . . never. But this one delighted me (and her other book, Blackmoore, is also only $1.57!). (Full review here)



a heart worth stealing bookA Heart Worth Stealing by Joanna Barker – $2.18
9 hours 47 minutes
This regency romance is such a delight to read. After her father’s passing, Ginny is devastated when his treasured pocket watch goes missing. When she hires a special investigator, Jack Travers, to help find the watch, he discovers there is more going on than just a missing watch. As Ginny and Jack work together, of course, there will be romance. This is a fantastic whodunnit story with lots of A+ banter.


drums girls and dangerous pieDrums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick – $2.24
4 hours 21 minutes
This book is young adult at its finest. I can’t say enough good things about this novel about a teenage boy whose younger brother is diagnosed with cancer (Full review here).


p.s. i like you bookP.S. I Like You by Kasie West – $3.27
6 hours 56 minutes
I recommend Kasie West all the time for people looking for clean YA romances. This one is just a quick fun read, even if I saw the twist a mile away.



a girl called samsonA Girl Called Samson by Amy Harmon – $3.50
13 hours 14 minutes
I have been so impressed and have truly loved the two Amy Harmon books I have read (What the Wind Knows and The Outlaw Noble Salt). This one is based on a real-life young woman who dressed as a man in order to fight in the American Revolution.


Winter GardenWinter Garden by Kristin Hannah – $3.50
14 hours 38 minutes

Fourth WingFourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros – $3.61
21 hours 22 minutes
I finally picked up a copy of this super popular book after checking it out at the library at least three times. I can see why so many people love it – it has romance, fantasy, and of course…dragon riders. 



project hail mary bookProject Hail Mary by Andy Weir – $4.19
16 hours 10 minutes
I loved this book from the author of The Martian – it’s clever and funny and fascinating. The audio is completely absorbing and you’ll feel like you’re out in deep space yourself!



talking as fast as i can bookTalking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham$5.94

I loved Gilmore Girls back in the day and this was just so delightful. The audio version is also a really great listen since she reads it herself.



You're not listeningYou’re Not Listening by Kate Murphy – $6.60
6 hours 39 minutes
This was one of my favorite books I read in 2019! I feel like this is one of those books basically everyone should read – I read it on a couple’s trip and talked Bart’s ear off about it the whole time. 


the good sister bookThe Good Sister by Sally Hepworth – $6.60
8 hours 19 minutes
This was probably my favorite book on the 2021 Summer Reading Guide. It’s just SO GOOD.
