Love audio when I'm on the go, but I will always love holding a book in my hand a having to turn the pages to read. I hope print never stops

    Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush, who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah's voice explains that there are 13 reasons she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why.

    Overall

    I found this book on accident and Its not something that I usually read. In fact in my giant book shelf its one of a kind. I thought the story was tragic but beautifully told. Its sad that a young girl would feel such a way but it really does show you the "snowball effect" and that everyone is connected, a "six degrees of separation" type deal. I myself couldn't put it down, like the boy listening to the audio tapes, you felt what he felt. There isn't a book like this that would've been written better and the character voices they chose to use was wonderful and I felt fit the people perfectly. Definitely something I would read/listen to again!

    Adopted by the Alpha of a werewolf pack after a rogue wolf brutally killed her parents right before her eyes, 15-year-old Bryn knows only pack life, and the rigid social hierarchy that controls it. That doesn't mean that she's averse to breaking a rule or two. But when her curiosity gets the better of her and she discovers Chase, a new teen locked in a cage in her guardian's basement, and witnesses him turn into a wolf before her eyes, the horrific memories of her parents' murders return.

    Story

    This was the first "wolf" book I listened to. I have everything else and I thought I would use this as something "new". I LOVED IT!! It kept me on my toes and I loved the twists it had in it. The middle of the book was awesome and the end is even more better!! Can't wait for the next book. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who just wants to "try out" a wolf series. And also check out Patricia Briggs "Hunting Ground" and "Cry Wolf" and "Alpha and Omega" for more wolf books.

    Overall

    I did love the book and the second one "Linger" but I hope that they don't make the same mistake as in the first one. I thought the girl they picked to read for them sounded like she was 12 years old, and the man sounded like he was in his early 20's. I know the girls is supposed to be a teenager but she's also supposed to be very mature for her age and I feel like the voice they chose for her didn't justify it enough. I did enjoy the male voice they chose but I thought that they could have at least matched them in a way. Other than that the book was FANTASTIC!! And I think any other girl her age probably would have reacted the same way and did everything she did. I suggest reading "Linger" if you like this one.
