  • "Beautiful, Tragic, Beaitiful & Honest"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    So this is one of those rare titles that you best listen to on a weekend when you have NOTHING better to do with your time. Why? The book is so exceptionally enthralling that you will find yourself immediately drawn into the story if you are even remotely a fan of literature of this kind. The narration was faultless and the story was tragic but honest and done so well. Absolutely superb.

    I think this book has the potential to polarize an audience. I say this because the topics the book touches... topics such as high school, suicide and date rape... all these topics are highly sensitive. These also are topics that some are not comfortable talking about and are in general very 'heavy' emotions to deal with. The book comes off as that, heavy.... riddled with feelings and emotions... That being said the somewhat heavy tone lends to making each portion of this book seem meaningful in some way. You know a book is great when it feels organic in a sense and unforced which was exactly what this was.You knew the outcome of the novel, the tragic end of the girl who left the tapes, and yet you find yourself engrossed in the novel from beginning to end.

    I agree that this book is tragic and if you are looking for a happy ending then you will miss out here. I mean yes, there is some amounts of closure and the main character here does find some sort of redemption in the end but there can be no true happy ending in a book where one of the main characters commits suicide. What appeals most me though in this book is the honesty.... it's tragic, it sucks but it's also true and it needs to be told. It also helps that the book is written so beautifully with the phrasing, the pauses, the choice of words being just plain immaculate.

    It's the sort of book that makes you want to be a bit nicer to people for the mere reason that you never know what they are going through and you never know if maybe they are teetering at the edge of their breaking point. It makes you want to ask someone "how are you" and actually mean it.... Sharing a kind word with someone just for the mere fact that you can just in case.

    The book had that ability to bring me back to some not so nice moments in my own life maybe not as bad as what Hannah went through but bad in its own right (I think everyone goes through something like this at one point or another) and it made me thankful for it not 'snowballing' as it did with Hannah because really, who knows how different I would have been now?

    When I finished the book and told a certain someone about it, they told me I shouldn't 'gush' about it in my review.... Well.... I am gushing and I believe this book was absolutely worth every moment of gushing. I mean I went through this book cover to cover in one sitting.... For a usual busy body like me doing 1 million things at once that truly is a task for a book to accomplish.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a sobering and honest title. To break up the monotony of sci-fi or action or romance or fantasy or whatever you're accustomed to. To delve in the mind of someone who simply was pushed too much... Where a series of unfortunate occurrences snowballed into something tragic... Something, that if you take the time out to reflect on and really allow to marinate within you can actually make you a better person after you finish it....

  • "Went by quickly... In a Good Way"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    The book went by pretty quickly actually and in a good way. It was one of those 'finish in one sitting' kind of books and leaves you somewhat wanting more and thinking that it ended well at the same time.

    The Hunt builds pretty well off the previous installments and does well with throwing a couple twists and surprises throughout the series. A number of things did appear a bit (at best) predictable by my tastes but I could probably shrug this off as being due to being accustomed so much to this genre of writing I can almost predict where the author is going with some things. That being said though, some of the things that were thrown at us throughout the scope of the title even caught me by surprised and I am left anticipating the next book to see how Cassie is able to maneuver her way out of the happenings in this title.

    One thing that strikes me most in these books and it is brought about a bit more if you ask me by Cassie's mother involvement in the circle... but I can't help wondering to myself.... What the heck is up with the other parents in these books?! So many things happen in these titles to leave me a bit baffled to say the least as to why all the parents of the circle members aren't more involved in what is going on. As secretive as the kids are I am sure the parents aren't oblivious enough to know something is up and that maybe their children are in mortal danger. Outside that little qualm (which I have been having since the 2nd book) the entire title was pretty enjoyable.

    The entire title remained true to the series and the genre it is trying to portray and the narration was also very fitting. As before, I look forward to see the follow up to this title.

  • "Coming of Age Story Done Right"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This book was honest, fun and chilling all at once. I have seldom liked 'coming of age' titles for the mare fact that it is either too PG or just plain too twisted. This on the other hand was just plain right... It did not attempt to share some shocking deep life lesson nor did it attempt to hide behind a whole lot of useless fluff and annoying teen angst... It just felt real.

    Stephen Chbosky's writing style allowed the reader/listener to really see Charlie's life just how he wishes it to be portrayed. It was a unique sort of writing style if you ask me and I can see how it can be a miss if done incorrectly, but when done right in the case of this book, it is utter genius! You find yourself reminiscing about your High School career, seeing the faces of your friends in your high school classes being represented here and unlike most other books that seem to force down the typical jock/cheerleader/nerd, this was done in such an effortless and real manner you can't help but falling into that mood of sheer nostalgia. The book was honest and actually was able to broach a rather disturbing topic but again because it was so time, done so effortless and so right I truly could not see the book done in any other way.

    Perfection was found by choosing Noah Galvin to be the narrator. I could find very little titles that I could say was better narrated than this one.

    I appreciated this book vastly for all the things that it did here and all the fundamental truths that it represented. It will strike a chord with almost anyone I believe; from the pitch perfect narration to the excellent storyline... all of this was just done really well.

  • Out of Breath: The Breathing Series, Book 3

    "Finally No More cliffhangers! I love a good HEA!!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I hate cliffhangers but I can honestly say the wait was worth it. This series caused a roller coaster of emotions. So much tragedy & abuse Emma had to endure. She always ended up hurting the ones she loved by pushing them away. My heart hurt for Emma. In the end, when you think that this poor girl will always stay broken she finally decides not to give up. She chooses to breath especially with Evan at her side. He never gave up and together they found their way back to each other. I'm glad the book ended the way it did. To me it was simply perfect.

  • Deeper We Fall: Fall and Rise, Book 1

    "A touching story of Love, Loyalty and Forgiveness."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is the second book by Chelsea M. Cameron I've purchased, the first being My Favorite Mistake, which I liked a great deal. Deeper We Fall is a Mature YA/New Adult novel written in the alternating points-of-view of Lottie (Charlotte) Anders and Zan (Alexander) Parker. Lottie was a normal high school girl at a party with her best friend Lexie. Lexie decided to go off with the guy she had a crush on (Zack) and his brother Zan. They had been drinking so Lottie refused to go with them, but as much as she tried, she couldn't stop Lexie from going. Her life changed forever that night. There was an accident, Lexie sustained a brain injury and things were never the same. This story is about second chances, fighting for what you desire, forgiving others and yourself, love and acceptance. Chelsea M. Cameron shows us a hard situation, the consequences of a mistake, an accident. I absolutely love how the author can capture our attention right from the start, pulling you along on a journey of heartbreak and happiness. This book is no exception. I definitely recommend you check this book out. It’s a sweet story that I think anyone will enjoy.

  • Never Too Far

    "Finally...Audible gives us the 2nd installment!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    One nice difference in this book than in Fallen Too Far is that we’re treated to dual POV. When the books begins, Blaire’s back in Sumit, with no clue where to go or what to do. While, Rush is being a depressed hermit, heartbroken over losing the only person he’ll ever be in love with. He was so lost without Blaire. Having his POV was the perfect way to experience this book. He was desperate to prove his undying love and devotion to her, and he would do anything to show her. I fell even farther in love with him. I didn't think it was possibly to love him anymore than I already did, but being in his mind blew me away. It allowed us to connect with him on a level that we didn't get in the first book. Blaire is struggling with figuring out what to do next when suddenly Bethy shows up & circumstances lead Blaire back to Rosemary, but she insists she is only staying for a few months, just enough time to save up some money and hit the road so she can finally leave all of this behind her. Little does she know, Rush won’t give her up that easily. Blaire is determined not to let Rush back into her heart. To her, too much damage had been done, too much baggage was in the way, and she would never allow herself to trust him again. Unfortunately for Blaire, Rush Finlay is not an easy man to let go, and Rush was just as determined to prove to Blaire that she was it for him, and he’d do anything to keep her, even if it meant shutting out his entire family. Slowly, Rush begins to break down the walls surrounding Blaire’s heart. Rush is such delicious alpha man candy!!! He is so sexy!!! I can't get enough of his dirty mouth. The sex was intense between them. I'm not joking!! It’s so hot!! I truly adore sweet Blaire! She has been through a lot in her life but she has still managed to come out of it all as a strong independent woman. Although, I didn't like how some of the drama was avoidable & unnecessary thanks to Blaire. It just took a little logic to figure things out without assuming the worst first. I did like learning more about Blaire’s father, her beautiful Mother, and the true nitty gritty details of the circumstances behind the greatest betrayal that rocked Blaire and Rush’s relationship. The depth of this situation was totally unexpected. So, even though I really liked this book, I wish it had been longer. I just felt some parts of the book were rushed and could have been developed a little better. I look forward to finding out what Forever Too Far has in store for us.

    Performance
    Story

    Marshmallow! Seriously, that's all I can say after that ending! I wasn't sure what to expect when I started One Week Girlfriend but the crazy twists, secrets and romance made me unable to stop listening.This book is intense, gritty, emotional and at times completely devastating! But it’s also a beautiful story about two lost souls finding each other, and I absolutely loved it! The beginning sucked me in, Drew and Fable both needed each other in ways they didn't even imagine. The characters Drew and Fable are both damaged and have a troubled past. Drew is a hunky football player with a lot of secrets. Fable is townie who works at a local bar to provide for her 13 year old brother & alcoholic mother. When Drew offers her a larger check to pretend to be his girlfriend during a week-long trip home for Thanksgiving, she agrees. What starts out as a fake relationship slowly turns into romance.This story was twisted, torturous while also portraying a true romantic love story! Drew and Fable had some major HOT chemistry!!! There are many twists in this book, many of which you can predict fairly early in the story. Regardless, I still enjoyed this book. I am really looking forward to the next part of Drew and Fable's story. I believe this book would be categorized under the "New Adult Romance" genre.

    First off ... I am a complete Nerd, so I am a huge fan of Matt and his quirky t-shirts and awkward social skills. I can totally relate. This book pulled me in from the start. I listened to it in two days... I enjoyed all the twist and turns of the book along with the modern draw of social media. Jessica Park did a wonderful job of drawing me in and keeping me interested throughout. I have listened to the book twice now.

    He was tall, at least six feet, with dirty blond hair that hung over his eyes. His T-shirt read Nietzsche Is My Homeboy. So, that was Matt. Who Julie Seagles likes. A lot. But there is also Finn. Who she flat out loves. Complicated? Awkward? Completely. But really, how was this freshly-minted Boston transplant and newbie college freshman supposed to know that she would end up living with the family of an old friend of her mother’s? This was all supposed to be temporary.
