1) Crying at H Mart By Michelle Sauner, narrated by the author

The first book on this list should come as no surprise: it has appeared in both Barnes & Noble’s top books for 2021 and Amazon’s books. It’s a memoir about mourning and food, and a bookseller at Blue Cypress Books said, “This book made me sob and starve at the same time. Perfect reading.”

2) The last thing he told me By Laura Dave, narrated by Rebecca Luuman

Choosing Reese’s book club (and probably chosen by many other book clubs!) And a New York Times bestseller, this mystery follows Hannah, a woman whose husband, Owen, disappears and leaves a secret note. Hannah and her teenage stepdaughter – who wants nothing to do with her – need to connect Owen’s past to try to find out where he went.

3) Malibu rises By Taylor Jenkins Reed, narrated by Julia Willen

Last by the author of Daisy Jones and the Six and Seven-year-old of Evelyn Hugo, It takes place in Malibu in the 80s, starring four famous brothers who make a party that changes their lives forever. A book seller at Book are Awesome assures that it is “a perfect and suspenseful beat from the first page!”

4) The four winds By Kristin Hannah, narrated by Julia Whelan

5) People we meet on vacation By Emily Henry, narrated by Julia Willen

6) Clara and the sun By Kazuo Ishiguro, narrated by Sura Siu

7) Anthropocene Review By John Green, narrated by the author

9) How the word is conveyed By Clint Smith, narrated by the author

10) Apples never fall By Lian Moriarty, narrated by Caroline Lee

Authors of popular book clubs like Kristin Hanna, Liane Moriarty and Taylor Jenkins Reed make up the bulk of this list.
