    Covering up her own murder was one thing, but faking life is much harder than Kaylee Cavanaugh expected. After weeks spent "recovering", she's back in school, fighting to stay visible to the human world, struggling to fit in with her friends and planning time alone with her new reaper boyfriend. But to earn her keep in the human world, Kaylee must reclaim stolen souls, and when her first assignment brings her face-to-face with an old foe, she knows the game has changed.

    I absolutely loved this book. I was sort of cautious because I didn't think it could get any better than the last one but it so did!! I definitely don't regret my purchase. My friends often think I'm crazy talking about this book like they were real people, but since they are so good it's so hard not to get attached to the characters. I really didn't want to finish it so soon but I just couldn't stop listening to it. The ending to this book was so unexpected and shocking that I CAN'T wait until the next one!!!

    Every morning, A wakes in a different person’s body, a different person’s life. There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere. It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply....

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

    Unique. Interesting. Bittersweet.


    What other book might you compare Every Day to and why?

    I really don't have a book to compare this too. I enjoyed the how it was unique. I've never read a book with a similar plot.


    Which character – as performed by Alex McKenna – was your favorite?

    "A" was my favorite. Not only because he was the main character but because the voice was perfect. It could go for either male or female. "A" had so many emotions for each life he or she lived.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the book but it did leave me wondering about the characters. It felt incomplete, like there should be a sequel to it or just more to this story. I definitely wasn't ready for it to end.

    The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee’s no ordinary high-school junior. She's a banshee - she screams when someone dies. But the next scream might be for Kaylee. Yeah, it's a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee's going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students.

    Would you consider the audio edition of If I Die to be better than the print version?

    I absolutely love the audio version! The narrator did such an awesome job that there is no way you can't get attached to the characters!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Todd was my favorite in this one. He is so selfless and always there for Kaylee.


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    Kaylee. I may not be a banshee hero but I can't help but relate in many ways.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried and laughed and that alone says a lot about a book. At the end of every book this series, I'm always sad to have to wait so long before the next one! I'm definitely sure that having such a great narrator only made me love this series even more!!!


    Any additional comments?

    This a must read series!!

    What made the experience of listening to Mockingjay the most enjoyable?

    The narrator's voice was perfect. Although I sort thought it would sound younger since Katniss is still a teenager but the narrator did a beautiful job on bringing the story to life. I couldn't stop listening to it!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I hate to see it end, I wanted this series to last a long time but it ended great. I did want to a fairy tale ending where everyone is happy and they get what the fought so long for, but the way this book ended was amazing. It was a bitterweet and powerful ending.


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

    The moment were Katniss sang the hanging man song. I got goosebumps and couldn't stop humming it. That is one song I will not forget for a while.
