New Fiction Audiobooks on hibooks! – July 2018

Every month we’ll let you know what new fiction audiobooks have been added to hibooks. July has some great offerings with Ottessa Moshfegh’s (great name btw) new book My Year of Rest and Relaxation following on from her bizarre and unsettling 2015 novel Eileen – the eponymous character being described by one Goodreads user as “one of the most pitiable and despicable characters I’ve ever read” – Go Eileen!

Naomi Novik returns after the success of 2015’s award-winning Uprooted, a novel that everyone seemed to be reading and talking about last year. In Spinning Silver, Novik takes on the fairytale retelling trend of reason years; this time Rumpelstiltskin get the works.

Although Pride month is over, Edouard Louis’ A History of Violence is now available. Most of us probably haven’t experienced being part of a cult tied to North Korea, but R. O. Kwon’s Incendiaries gives us an insight into both. Rosie Walsh’s Ghosted is probably something we’ve all experienced but has only recently been christened: the act of ghosting i.e. when someone who have a crush on gradually starts to ignore before full-on ignoring you (Tinder, you have a lot to answer for).

There are just a selection of the new fiction audiobooks we’ve added to hibooks so be sure to check out what else is new this month. I’ll be back in August to let you know what other new titles are ready and willing.
