    One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves - and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emma Galvin?

    I wish she’d working on distinguishing each character voices. I love her voice for Tris, but she is no Tavia Gilbert.

    I can't wait for the next book.

    Evie hangs her head in sorrow for just a moment when she knows she is truly alone. She feels like she's going to her execution, just as he had said. Then she moves forward again. She hops a fence of fieldstone and crosses a field dotted with Queen Anne's lace. Goose bumps rise on her arms as she passes the cluster of windmills that she's seen in a dream. The scent is sweet in the field though, not the scent of heat, like it had been when it was forced upon her in visions.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes the storyline was really boring and Evie really got on my nerves. Goodness you can't save and love everyone. She keeps making the same mistakes over and over again: making a bad situation worse. For someone who played sport she is not a very good team player. For heaven sakes girl you are a new Angel who barley knows anything listen to the experience Angels and learn a thing or two and then fight fight fight. Reed was also a little overbearing still being over protective and keep Evie in the dark. He's been around long enough to know better. Loved everyone else which is why my rating was not lower.


    What about Emily Woo Zeller’s performance did you like?

    Emily Woo Zeller was great as always.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the first book and got through the second book just fine, but this I really didn't like thank goodness for Zeller performance because I would have stop listening if it was someone else reading.

    Hannah Payne awakens to a nightmare. She is lying on a table in a bare room, covered only by a paper gown, with cameras broadcasting her every move to millions at home. She is now a convicted criminal, and her skin color has been genetically altered. Her crime, according to the State of Texas: the murder of her unborn child, whose father she refuses to name. Her color: red. The color of newly shed blood.

    What did you like best about When She Woke? What did you like least?

    Everything was laid out in the open finally, there are decent people out there willing to give you a second chance.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Okay so she got away, now Hannah needs to learn from your past mistakes and make better choices.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Really!!!! Hannah knew what she was getting into when decided to sleep with this married man. How foolish was she not to protect herself from getting pregnant and or contracting a disease. You have to look out for number one (yourself). This book took things to the extreme. Hannah made mistakes that a child not a full grown woman makes. She had her eyes wide open.

    Aiden's wife is the really victim here. He gave her a disease which led to her infertility and he breaks their marriage vows. Yeah he's the type of guy I want my child to bring home to met me....Not!!! I don't agree with the treatment she received by the halfway house, her mother and brother-in-law. No one should be treated badly for making a mistake, non of us are perfect and we all fall far from grace.

    LOVE and compassion is the greatest medicine we all need in our lives.

    When Ruby woke up on her 10th birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that had killed most of America’s children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they could not control.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would, it was so freaking AMAZING, I did not expect this book to be that good. it's not another sweet romance without anything else of substance that makes for a good time passer. Going into the Darkest Minds, I didn't really know what to expect. I never heard of Alexandra Bracken or Amy McFadden but together they are pure perfection. I love dystopian novels are one of my favorites of 2013.

    Ruby at the age of ten and placed in a government-run rehabilitation camp for kids like her - kids who, for whatever reason, began to show signs of extraordinary abilities. Trapped at camp for six years, Ruby believes she is exactly where she belongs after what she did to her parents.

    I did occasionally find myself wanting to yell at her in frustration but those moments were small and far apart. The main character was smart but not a Mary Sue, she made mistakes and this made the book better to listen to no one is perfect.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was fast paced and somewhat surprising. I hated the idea of being able to accidentally erase someone's memory of you. That feeling kept me wanting to know how this trilogy will end.


    What about Amy McFadden’s performance did you like?

    Solid job all around.

    They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

    McDonald's for one and the highway chase. The internal dialogue throughout this book made me laugh so hard, I love it.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like zombies, there is enough of them for you, If you like humor this book is more your style. I wouldn't want to live in this world, but Mark Tufo's vision made it a great ride. I can't wait to get the next book and I am so glad I don't have to wait for it to be released.

    I couldn't imagine anyone else narrating this series. Perfect timing every time. Sean Runnette I am a fan now.

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    Which character – as performed by Sean Runnette – was your favorite?

    Tommy


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The Cat fight between Mike and Tim.

    This book was so funny in so many ways. Too much internal dialogue though, but that's where a lot of the funny jokes came from. So I can live with it. I wasn't sure if I would buy the next book, but I want to find out what happens next.

    Okay, so jogging through Central Park after midnight wasn't a bright idea. But Margrit Knight never thought she'd encounter a dark new world filled with magical beings, not to mention a dying woman and a mysterious stranger with blood on his hands. Her logical, lawyer instincts told her it couldn't all be real, but she could hardly deny what she'd seen...and touched.

    I don't know, I was not impressed with story, it was so slow and nothing really happened. I guess I must read way too much to be entertained by this story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Eve Bianco’s performances?

    Yes I did like the narrator which was the was the only reason I finished the book, I just kept hoping the story would get better. Not sure I will continue with the series. Can I get my money back?!!!

    The selection began with 35 girls. Now, with the group narrowed down to the Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's love is fiercer than ever. The closer America gets to the crown, the more she struggles to figure out where her heart truly lies. Each moment she spends with Maxon is like a fairy tale, filled with breathless, glittering romance. But whenever she sees her first love, Aspen, standing guard, she's swept up in longing for the life they'd planned to share.

    Would you try another book from Kiera Cass and/or Amy Rubinate?

    Not sure. Nothing happened throughout this book. America's ever-changing feelings for Aspen and Maxon was frustrating. This book didn't have enough plot for a whole book. A change of scenery might be great for all.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Amy Rubinate’s performances?

    Not all she is a boring narrator. I guess I have been spoiled by more seasoned narrators how act out the stories and not just read.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I wish America would just leave already, I am so tired of this love triangle. This story was so predictable. Why can't these characters learn how to communicate and avoid all of the miss understandings.


    Any additional comments?

    Nothing happened throughout this book. There was no rime or reason to it and it was just America going back and forth between Maxon and Aspen and crying over her feelings. This book could have been rolled up in the Selection and should not have been splint into two separate books. Also keeping the identity of her ex-boyfriend currently guarding her safety and hated royalty? It is going to blow up in her face.

    With all that said I will still get the last book, but it will be on the last of my list.

    The Apocalypse does not end. The Changed will grow in numbers. The Spared may not survive. Even before the EMPs brought down the world, Alex was on the run from the demons of her past and the monster living in her head. After the world was gone, she believed Rule could be a sanctuary for her and those she’d come to love. But she was wrong. Now Alex is in the fight of her life against the adults, who would use her, the survivors, who don’t trust her, and the Changed, who would eat her alive....

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shadows to be better than the print version?

    Kept my adrenaline pumping, just as Ashes did, but the gruesome descriptions also left me a bit grossed out! After the first few chapters I finally got the hang of the fast pacing and the jumping around of points of view. It was really fast paced and intense and it felt so real sometimes. I loved both book, but Shadows had me saying NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO a lot go back go back don't switch the pov now!!! The characters voices were very distinct and it was interesting to catch a glimpse into each character's lives and I did want to know what happened to the others at the same time so in the end it was okay. I can't believe I have to wait for the next book!!!!! When is it supposed to be released?


    What other book might you compare Shadows to and why?

    Hunger games meets Walking dead.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't have a favorite scene, (spoiler alert) but I never want have to bite into a zombie's face and taste decaying flesh or dead blood. Or wait not only having to worry about being killed and eaten, but now worrying about sex crazed zombie boy who can't wait to get into your pants yuck.


    Any additional comments?

    Ilsa J. Bick does it again with this second installment to the Ashes trilogy. Shadows has very much left me in a whirlwind of mixed emotions. Yes, I can follow multiple plot-lines, but the problem is in the climax and falling action, but there was at first too many characters having too many problems in too many places for the third book in the series to competently wrap up the story. How will Ms. Bick fix all of those people's problems without it sounding like a check list? I have fate in you not to disappoint me, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    I would highly recommend you read Ashes before you read Shadows.The world has changed and what is left is older people, young kids, people who for different reasons didn't change and the zombies or as they are called in these books The Changed or Chuckies.
