    Story

    This is the beginning of a series that follows the coming of age adventure of a young girl who is destined to be a great warrior and leader. This is a great read. Though fantasy this isn't one of those unbelievable novels. You feel like you are experiencing the fateful ride with her. I'll warn you now that you'll have to find out if she will get through the dangers. Will she survive - unscathed or will she possibly lose her greatest ally to the evil they flee from? Will she complete her mission or was it a waste of time all along and not what she was meant to do at all? The only way to find out is to read the book. Enjoy the listen because this is a great one.

    A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty is a powerful saga of three generations of women, plagued by hardships and torn by a devastating secret, yet inextricably joined by the bonds of family. Fifteen-year-old Mosey Slocumb-spirited, sassy, and on the cusp of womanhood-is shaken when a small grave is unearthed in the backyard, and determined to figure out why it's there. Liza, her stroke-ravaged mother, is haunted by choices she made as a teenager. But it is Jenny, Mosey's strong and big-hearted grandmother....

    Story

    This is a good story. The female characters are flawed but likable and have a realistic slant on life. You feel like you could have known these characters and find yourself routing for them to have their happy ending. The author chooses to narrate her own work, which is a mistake, as she does not have the voice for it.

    Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stones throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valleys pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg.

    I enjoyed this read. This is the second book by Molly Harper that I've read and really enjoyed. She brings a fresh air to the paranormal romance that makes me it different and fun. The narrator has a great way of bringing the characters to life. They make a great pair.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Story

    Most of the characters are well developed and likable. The antagonists are just beginning to become familiar, but it's clear they will play a larger role in the sequel. The romance is lovely, and I like the way the friends and family rally around the main characters to give their support. There are some charming surprises and great science and literary references.

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    For 35 girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime: the opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth... to be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels... to live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon. But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her, and leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want.

    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.

    Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.

    This is a fun book. It's got some excitement, some twists and turns, and of course the ahh moment. The leader of the crew of the Oregon, Juan Cabrillo, is a real manly man who still knows how to treat a lady and draw respect and loyalty from those around him. His keen intelligence and leadership binds the crew together and makes the completion of the mission possible.

    I enjoy Nora Roberts's novels especially the Boonesboro Inn series, but this title was disappointing. It was just too predictable. You knew everything that was going to happen long before it actually did. A lack of surprises makes for a boring book.

    Sookie and her friends will draw you into their world and leave you wanting more. This is a fun read. A piece of advice, separate the novel series from the HBO show. HBO has given the book a Hollywood make-over, and what they haven't changed, they've left out all together. I'll take the books over the HBO series any day. It's just that much better.
