    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that I didn't know who done it from the start! I kept guessing up until close to the end. I figured it out chapter by chapter with the main (kick A$$, girl power) character.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too Many to list!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Once I got absorbed into it, yes! I found myself thinking about it when I wasn't listening to it, which made me listen to it.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed book one so much I was excited for book two and wasn’t disappointed! I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. I love how the author tells Abby’s story and how it bounces back between Abby and the pastor! I highly recommend this book even if you have’t read the first in the series because it definitely work as a stand alone! I love how the lord is using this author to write such emotional books about everyday trials that we can relate to! Thank you!

    I enjoyed this new YA series so much that I went right to book two when this one finished. I just had to know what was next. Not only did I fall in love with the main characters but love how each character has a storyline that is written in and enjoyed following them all. A lot of times when a book jumps around from character to character I get lost... but the between the way it is written and the narrator... LOVED IT!

    A series of unexplainable tragedies surround a family and their young daughter as they seek to determine whether they are possessed, paranoid, or collectively going insane. Meanwhile, forgotten clues from the father's past may indicate forces are at work in ways more ominous than any of them could have imagined.

    I had trouble getting into the book at first but stuck with it and so glad I did! It just kept getting better and better the whole time leaving me covered in goose bumps.

    I don't want to give anything away for the next reader so I'll just say what an awesome storyline and great characters. The narrator was a huge key into bringing each character to life giving them their own unique voice and emotions (that I felt). Goose bumps up, hair standing on end, gasping at times and laughing at other times... such a wonderful thriller.

    I wasn't sure I liked this audiobook when I first started listening but the more I listened the more and more I found myself pulled in. Such a GREAT understanding on several different yet relatable issues surrounding depression. Being a military spouse and dealing with close family members that suffer from depression I found myself relating to this book on so many levels. I couldn't believe this book found me. I enjoyed every moment of it once I was pulled in and find myself drifting off thinking about it from time to time. I'm not one to listen to or read a book more than once (maybe twice) but I'm keeping this one to do just that. It has a special tug at my heart.

    For two long terrifying years, Sakhi Borren, and her beloved brother Reve, are headed to live at The Complex. An enclosed metal and concrete manufactured world on the barren planet Lorn, the Complex is some government's version of a good idea. Its sole purpose is to "heal the rifts between warring races" - a joke if ever Sakhi heard one. If she and her brother can survive to the end, they'll leave, far richer. In the meantime, all they can look forward to is co-existing with criminals and the scumbags known as Metas.

    I'm not big on futuristic scifi books and movies but I can say this book was really, really entertaining. I love the hidden meanings that have a lot to do with things that are going on in our world today. Acceptance and getting along with everyone regardless of who they are or where they come from. The Narrator is perfect for this book giving the characters their voice and bringing it to life.

    Marla finds herself in yet another murder mystery and I can't help but enjoy every second of it. If you've read the other two books in the series then you already know the author and her characters will not disappoint. If you haven't already read or listened to one of the books in the series don't worry you will still enjoy this book and want to read or listen to the others.

    Brooklyn Prescott (if that's even her real name) is the new girl at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence, now that she's moved back to the States after two years living in London. Rosewood, a boarding school for children of the rich and famous and known for its celebutantes, is missing just one element important to any junior's education: boys. But luckily for Brooklyn, and the rest of the Rosewood girls, there's a boys' boarding school, The Westwood Academy, just a few miles away.
