Reading is great, but I LOVE audiobooks! I would never get this much read or done without them...

  • Halfway to the Grave: Night Huntress, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 17 mins)
    • By Jeaniene Frost
    • Narrated By Tavia Gilbert
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Stephenie says: "Great series. Worth every credit."
    "It's 4.5 stars of FUN"

    Never thought I'd ever read books with a topless male gracing the cover, but I read this book - and then the rest of the Night Huntress series and the spin-offs as well. (Even though Night Huntress series covers don't, check out the cover of "Once Burned" and you'll see what I mean.)

    The characters are enjoyable and it's just a fun ride. The sex scenes get more and more graphic from one novel to the next, but that's not why I read the books (they would be just as good without those scenes - the chemistry between the main characters is almost more palpable before they get to the dirty deed). The action, sense of humour and fun characters keep it entertaining in a way that kept me coming back, even if the basic storyline lacked originality at times.

    Tavia is great, Bones's accent even grew on me.

    I quite enjoyed these books, so glad I took a chance on the over-done Vamp genre!

  • Winter of the World: The Century Trilogy, Book 2

    • UNABRIDGED (31 hrs and 48 mins)
    • By Ken Follett
    • Narrated By John Lee
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Tim says: "Brilliant Sequel"
    "Didn't Disappoint"

    After Fall of Giants I had high expectations - Winter of the World did not disappoint. I enjoyed this book very much; it took me back in time in a way that no history book could. Although the characters are fictional, it gave an insight into what people may have been thinking, feeling and surviving (or not) before, during and after WWII. It really is unfathomable and mind-blowing to anyone growing up in the post-war era. Although many of the horrifying parts were difficult to read, the characters and their stories were so compelling that I was eager to continue listening and following them until the very end.

  • Where She Went

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 21 mins)
    • By Gayle Forman
    • Narrated By Dan Bittner
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    It's been three years since the devastating accident... three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever. Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock-star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other.

    Arwen says: "Groovy and the Geek"
    "Loved it!"

    "Where She Went" definitely surprised me in how much I ended up enjoying it. I liked "If I Stay" (prequel) a lot, but liked this one more... Or perhaps "If I Stay" just made "Where She Went" even better. The story is somewhat YA in that the main characters are musicians/rock stars, but it was genuine and fresh enough to reel me in and get me emotionally involved with the characters. I was left thinking about the book long after I'd finished it... Also, I love Dan Bittner's voice.
