    Hot off the success of her best-selling Can You Keep a Secret?, Sophie Kinsella delivers another hilarious Becky Bloomwood novel. When last we left Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood), she and Luke had just married and she'd unveiled her big honeymoon surprise...around-the-globe plane tickets. World-weary 10 months later, the newlyweds return home filled with excitement to share the details of their amazing escapades.

    Story

    I loved listening to past Shopaholic books. They were funny and entertaining - good, light listening. I felt irritable and bothered throughout most of this book - irritated with Becky's seemingless endless credit limit (really? the amount of things she bought on a year-long honeymoon?) and her drive to be sisters and friends with this ungrateful, boring, negative woman.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Story

    I didn't find these "young adult" at all. I thought they were very surprising and well written. I agree that the reader had a hard time changing her voice to suit the different characters. I thought some of the details about the games were brilliant and I was interested from beginning to end.

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    Story

    I listen to books in my car, and I am fairly easy to please. As long as the book keeps me entertained, I'm satisfied. This book was so long-winded, inundated with insignificant detail after insignificant detail, that at some point, I started fast forwarding through the book, and I don't think I missed anything of importance to the storyline. What could have been an intriguing plot got so lost. And the ability of this thin, small woman at the end? Really? It was unbelievable at best. I feel bad saying this, but I just don't get it.

    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    Kathleen says: "A truly memorable read"
    "Brilliant"
    Overall

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I heard that the majority of this book is told by a 5-year-old character. I often find that authors have a hard time speaking as a child - this was so incredibly believable and brilliantly written and read. What an awesome book. When I finished the book, I felt like I was leaving a few friends - I related to them and I felt like I knew them. I hated that this book ended. One of the best books, in addition to The Help, that I have read in a long time.
