I absolutely love audible! I read constantly and there is nothing better than finding a new series to follow. I'm a syfy/fant kinda gal.

    "I've experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?" (Ellen DeGeneres)

    Where does Seriously...I'm Kidding rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's mid level. I've read better but I've read worse...


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ellen DeGeneres? Why or why not?

    Yes. This book was good for a few great laughs. I like Ellen in general and enjoy her comedy.


    What does Ellen DeGeneres bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her sarcasm about real life simple acts really entertains.


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

    I loved her describing her cover girl experience.

    When a young woman plunges from a Las Vegas tour helicopter, landing in the Pirate’s lagoon in front of the Treasure Island Hotel in the middle the 8:30 Pirate Show, almost everyone wrote her off as another Vegas victim. But Lucky O’Toole, the wise-cracking Head of Customer Relations at the Babylon, the newest, most over-the-top mega-resort on the Strip, smelled a rat.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I don't love Teddy. I could live without the drag queen boyfriend. Lucky is a loveable kind sweet person. I love her moxy!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    No, this isn't a mystery novel per say. It is fun, sexy and cheeky. I loved the "who done it" aspects, but I am crazy about Lucky.


    What didn’t you like about Renée Raudman’s performance?

    She was a decent narrator, but not how I think Lucky sounds. She is a little lacking, but not enough to spoil the book.


    Did Wanna Get Lucky? inspire you to do anything?

    Yea,I got book 2 the next day.


    Any additional comments?

    Good read. Worth the time and an all around fun time. Great Saturday afternoon fun!

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

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

    The conversations between the dog and Adacus was the most enjoyable. I love the fact that they can communicate telepathically. It's hillarious!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the concept of Druids living for millions of years. I like the God's and the different planes of reality. Very interesting and fun!


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    He has done all these books and I really like his performances. He does great voices for the characters.


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

    Yes it was. I listened to it all in 2 days. Very fun books.


    Any additional comments?

    These are good reads. I recommend them.

    What made the experience of listening to Unholy Ghosts the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the narration for this book. I really like Bahni Turpin. She has good voices for each characters.


    If you’ve listened to books by Stacia Kane before, how does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to any other books by Ms. Kane.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene with Terrible when they are kissing and almost leave the bar together. Then she blows it by acting like a jerk. That was my favorite scene.


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

    This book didn't hold any hope for me. The book itself was a decent story and a unique concept, but in this new world, there is no hope. No chance of a future or love. I felt that the characters were all very beaten down and lonely. It's a sad world filled with man's addictive personality and anger.


    Any additional comments?

    I will not be reading any other books in this series. Again, the story was good too dark for me to have the desire to continue.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Ascend to be better than the print version?

    The confrontation was the most memorable moment. It was both climatic and fulfilling to the reader.

    I have listened to all of this series books with Ms. Plummer's narration. She has mastered the voices in this series very well.

    GOOD VS EVIL; AN EPIC BATTLE.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great ending to the series. I read through all of the books within two weeks and am satisfied with the outcome. Good read.

    What did you love best about Insurgent?

    The story! I found this book to be extremely unique and in a class by itself. I couldn't stop listening once I started. This story has many twists and turns. Just when I thought I had figured it out and said...OK THIS IS IT....BOOM something else happened and took it in a different direction.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Four is my favorite because he is the true definition of what brave should be. He faces his fears while being a true leader.


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ms. Galvin is a new narrator for me, but I did enjoy her voice. She does a very good job with her narration.


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

    The ending to this book took me by complete surprise and had me literally screaming....WHEN IS BOOK 3 COMING OUT????


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend these books! They are unique and ones you don't want to miss out on! I await book 3 on pins and needles! Unexpectedly great!

    Lost in Time follows half-vampire Schuyler and her Blue Blooded bondmate Jack as they head to Egypt in search of the Gate of Promise. But what they find upon arrival in Alexandria isn’t at all what they had hoped for. Everything Schuyler thought she knew about the Gate turns out to be a lie, and they soon find themselves ensnared in a deadly battle against the demon-born.

    Couldn't put down!


    What other book might you compare Lost in Time to and why?

    I read a lot of syfy; when I read the last book, Van Allen Legacy, I was extremely disappointed. This book completely made up for the last one! I was riveted from minute one!


    What does Christina Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms. Moore is a good narrator. I find her voices a little lacking, but all in all she adds to the audiobook.


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

    YES! I listed to this book in a day. I was extremely pleased and look forward to the final installment and the wrap up of these characters I've been listening to for years.

    Definitely worth the read!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Once Burned to be better than the print version?

    YES. I love Tavia Gilbert! She is one of my favorite narrators and I LOVE Vlad's accent during her performances.


    What other book might you compare Once Burned to and why?

    I am a HUGE Cat & Bones fan! I will say this book wasn't AS great as I thought it would be, but I have extremely high hopes for the Vlad series. Vlad is one of my favorite characters and I can't wait to see what is in store for him next!


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    Her accents are my favorite part of her performances! Bone/Spade and Vlad have unique accents that sets Ms. Gilbert apart from other 'ordinary' narrators.


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

    This book was both funny and touching in certain parts.


    Any additional comments?

    A great read without a true final ending, but good none the less!
