    There are reasons we fear the night. He isn't one of them. Bill Ryder was a dateless dweeb...then he died. Unfortunately for him that was just the beginning of his troubles. He awoke to find himself a vampire, one of the legendary predators of the night. Unfortunately for him, he was still at the bottom of the food chain. Now he finds himself surrounded by creatures stronger, deadlier and a whole lot cooler than he is. Worst yet, they all want him dead...permanently this time.

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    Phineas McKinney thought New York City was tough, until he was attacked by Malcontents - evil vampires who consider mortals to be snacks. Saved by the good vampires, Phin swore to devote his now undead life to stopping the Malcontents. He's got his job cut out for him when word comes that their enemy may be hiding in Wyoming. What does a city boy like him know about horses and campfires? Good thing he's got Brynley Jones with him... if only she didn't hate every vampire on earth.

    Story

    I loved this series. But, I really prefer a series to at least have the majority of the books narrated be the same person. I know it's hard to have the same narrator for an entire series, but I would have enjoyed the listening experience more if the same narrator had read all of them.

    Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin are two of the sassiest hairdressers in Salt Lick, Texas. But these two spunky ladies do more than spice up the do's of their gossipy patrons. They also moonlight as the Domestic Equalizers, P.I.s with the best hair in the Lone Star State. Not ones to turn down a juicy assignment, Debbie Sue and Edwina get involved in a case of missing horses.

    Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash is a rollicking Texas mystery debut jam-packed with humor - and a heaping helping of romance to boot! Down in Salt Lick, Texas, a lot of folks got sass, but beauty salon proprietor Debbie Sue Overstreet has a bit more than most.

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love Molly Harper's sence of humor. She has the ability to show the reader by her words just how the character is feeling. I love all her books.


    What other book might you compare Driving Mr. Dead to and why?

    All of Molly Harper's books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    In chapter 6 Colin tells Miranda how he became a vampire. This talk was a turning point.


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

    That is not something I look for. I love audio books no matter how long or short.

  • Ready Player One

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved them all.


    What does Wil Wheaton bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Will Wheaton brought the characters to life for me.
