    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

    Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and he is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda's motivation, until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before - when Will's father was imprisoned for murder - this was his home....

    If you could sum up Criminal in three words, what would they be?

    Karin Slaughter delivers once again. Riveting story. Kept my attention at every twist and turn. So many questions in Will Trent's life are answered finally.


    What other book might you compare Criminal to and why?

    All of the books in the Grant County and Will Trent series are excellent. All well written and should be read in order.


    Which character – as performed by Kathleen Early – was your favorite?

    I didn't have a favorite, but I disliked the husky smoker Amanda voice.


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

    Don't read this spoiler if you haven't read the book, but finding baby Will in the trash can nearly brought me to tears.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it!

    Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened - something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Would you try another book from E. L. James and/or Becca Battoe?

    This book was miserable and depressing. The time I wasted reading it is lost to me forever. I will never get it back. Best written section was the legalese of the contract.The only positive comment I can make is that all relationships should begin with a frank discussion of limits. If doing dishes is a “hard limit” for some, it’s best to find out early on.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It's not the performer's fault that the book was terrible.
