I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    STORY (YA romance) - I have been anxiously awaiting the release of The One and was pleased to find that Kiera Cass decided to give us something to placate us in the meantime. This book is two separate novellas that give the viewpoints of Maxon and Aspen. If you've been following The Selection series, you will know it's about a competition between 35 young girls wishing to become the wife of Prince Maxon. The main character, America, is in the competition but still has feelings for her old BF Aspen, who is a guard at the palace and watching the competition unfold. It's the ultimate love triangle, not to mention all the tension between the competitors. (Do you watch The Bachelor on TV?)

    This book is enjoyable, but there's really nothing new that happens. It's basically the same story as The Selection and The Elite, but it tells where the guys were and what they were doing/thinking when events occurred. You will hear how nervous Maxon was about the competition and how he accidentally met America before it started and liked her immediately. Aspen's perspective is basically about his devotion to "Mare" (nickname for America) and his dislike for Prince Maxon.

    If you love this series as I do, you might want to hear these short novellas but, as I said, the story doesn't really progress from the ending of the last book. There's a preview of The One at the end but, again, nothing really new happens.

    PERFORMANCE - The stories of Maxon and Aspen each have a different narrator. They both do good jobs, though I think they pronounce the name of the country differently than Amy Rubinate. Amy is back to narrate the preview at the end.

    OVERALL - If you are thinking about listening to this series, don't start here. Start with The Selection and then hear The Elite. The series is easy listening, romantic and thoroughly enjoyable. There is no sex and only a little mild violence, so it's recommended for all ages. Not a book for guys.

    Story

    STORY - As a rule I don't like sad books or movies, but I decided to take a chance on this one for the sake of variety and also the very high ratings. I was not disappointed. The only reason I didn't rate this book a 5 is because it was -- well, predictably sad. The story is about two teenagers, Hazel and Augustus, who both have cancer and fall in love. They are both very smart, mature for their years and have healthy attitudes about their illness. The story doesn't dwell on tear-jerking descriptions of their symptoms and suffering. It is more about how they struggle to just be normal teenagers and try to do what other kids their age do. That is what's so sad, the fact that they just accept amputations, tubes and treatments as normal, often joking about their own shortcomings.

    Despite the sadness, it is a beautifully written story and I couldn't stop listening. Hazel and Gus are loveable teenaged characters and their story seems very real. The truth that serious illnesses affect children is something we don't like to think about, but sometimes we need to be reminded.

    NARRATION - The reading of this story is good, but there is nothing special about the performance.

    OVERALL - If you don't mind a good cry, I would definitely recommend this book.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Story

    STORY - (young adult romance/action) Pandemonium is Book 2 in the Delirium Trilogy. Even though this is a young adult series and I'm not a young adult, I am enjoying it very much. The story is interesting and is beautifully written and performed. It takes place in an America where human emotions are deemed dangerous and procedures are done at age 18 to "cure" everyone from their deadly feelings -- except those who escape. The main characters must grow up quickly to survive, and there is lots of mystery, danger, action and, yes, sweet teenage romance.

    There is mostly new characters in this book, even though the story picks up immediately where Book 1 left off, and there are two timelines going at once. At first the two timeslines were confusing, but just go with the flow and enjoy. It's easy to keep straight which is which, and it all makes sense in the end. You will want to listen to these books in order, starting with Book 1, but beware of cliffhanger endings in both books -- BIG, FAT cliffhangers!

    PERFORMANCE - I can't recall any other narrator who puts as much emotion into a performance as Sara Drew does in these books. As she tells the story through the main character, Layna, you can really feel her joy, fear, strength, pain. Great job.

    OVERALL - Highly recommended for young adults and for old people like me who occasionally enjoy a good YA story.

    I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare, pushing aside thoughts of Alex, pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school, push, push, push, like Raven taught me to do. The old life is dead. But the old Lena is dead too. I buried her.I left her beyond a fence, behind a wall of smoke and flame. Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bests eller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

  • Out of Breath: The Breathing Series, Book 3

    "Perfect ending to the series"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Just as promised I was holding my breath until the very end. This was a crazy emotional read from beginning to end. I.AM.EMOTIONALLY.SPENT! Stick a fork in me I'm done!

    Emma is an exhausting character and difficult to love, but she is consistent in her backwards thinking, annoying and very damaged. (We could never be friends...way too much drama...and then there is all of the crazy!) I felt like I was watching her self destruct, and it was painful. This book is mostly dark and depressing. I felt it was mostly appropriate for this series...but come on...I wanted to slit my wrists with all of the darkness. On a good note...I love the boys in this book...they kept me going. My heart ached for Evan...he must be a saint of sorts to handle all of this...right?

    I didn't love this book like the others in the series but I did like the way the series ended. What can I say...I found this book exhausting. Have I mentioned that yet? Overall, I am glad that I read it and that now I have closure. It is a series worth reading.

    Again Kate Rudd was fantastic in the delivery of the story

  • Reason to Breathe: Breathing, Book 1

    "Surprisingly Good"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This book is a YA listen which is not my usual choice. I thought I would give it a try as the book was recommended by a friend and the ratings it has recieved.
    I really enjoyed this book though it was tough to read in parts due to the abuse that Emma suffered at the hands of her Aunt.

    I felt that the author dealt with abuse in a fairly realistic way, though thankfully I have never suffered myself I have had friends who did.

    I know some people felt that either Emma herself or one of her friends should have said something but it's not that easy.
    Her aunt had her believing that she was so worthless & she also loved her cousin's & didn't want them to have to grow up without their parents as she had done.
    And her best friend Sara did try to tell but Emma threatened to use info on her to stop her from doing so.

    Evan was a great love interest, as he was new to the school he didn't have any experience with Emma's ways over the years. Often we have a girl who claims not to know how beautiful she is or why anyone would have any interest in her (which is very annoying IMO) but in this case because of the mental abuse she receives from her aunt it is believable. I love that he never gives up on her when trying to get to know her no matter how many times she rebuffs him.

    On the downside I did find myself skimming on occasion as the author got overly descriptive in parts, it felt a bit like she was trying to fill out the book which I didn't feel was necessary.
    I also never really understand why her aunt hated her soooo much & why she reacted in such a brutal way to her without any previous history of being violent, I could have done with a bit of back story on this. Also a bit more on George, did he know what was happening, if so did he not care or did he not want to believe it could happen.

    If you find after you have read a few chapters that you are enjoying this book as much as I did, I would recommend you have book 2 Barely Breathing at the ready as this ends on a bitch of a cliffhanger.
    Kate Rudd was outstanding in the delivery of the story.

  • "Enjoyable Slow Burn Story"

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    This is the second 'slow burn' YA title I've read/listen to this month. But unlike Matched by Allie Condy, this heroine's langour isn't boring nor does it create a flat character. That's because protagonist Nikki has spent 100 years away from her 17 year old life, trapped in a purgatory. She has to regain emotions lost during that time - and she does over the course of the book. The character development is palpable.

    I enjoyed Everneath - there were plenty of mysteries and the 6 month Persephone myth added impetus to the story. As with many YA stories of late, the hero was a bit too good to be true. Although author Brodi Ashton attempted to give him some foibles, they weren't really believable and we didn't get much in the way of his characterization as a result. The same could be said of her best friend, who is almost a cardboard cut out throughout.

    But that said, the story flowed smoothly and I enjoyed the ride. I will be purchasing the next title as well.

    The audible performance was very good and added to, rather than detracted from, the story.

    Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath. Now she’s returned - to her old life, her family, her boyfriend - before she’s banished back to the underworld... this time forever. She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can’t find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists. Nikki longs to spend these precious months forgetting the Everneath and trying to reconnect with her boyfriend, Jack, the person most devastated by her disappearance - and the one person she loves more than anything.
