    Layken Cohen isn't your typical 18-year-old. After the recent death of her father, she is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's slowly losing hope. Enter Will Cooper: The 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for performing "Slams". Will and Layken immediately form an intense and emotional connection neither of them knew they needed until it was found.

    I absolutely love this book. It has it all: angst, love, tears, humor. It is a definite re-read/re-listen for me.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Story

    I had heard so much about this book, and I have to say that I was a little underwhelmed. While I thought that it was good, I felt that the story kept stalling while intricate DNA and historcal references were explained. It was totally "put-down-able." I also felt that the romance deserved a little attention.

    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature, Margaret Mitchell's great novel of the South is one of the most popular books ever written. Within six months of its publication in 1936, Gone With the Wind had sold a million copies. To date, it has been translated into 25 languages, and more than 28 million copies have been sold. Here are the characters that have become symbols of passion and desire....

    This was so much more than I ever expected. Growing up I always wanted to live in the world of the movie Gone with the Wind. This book fleshes out and explains the why behind what happened in the movie. There was also a history lesson interwoven in the story. I enjoyed it thoroughly. It was well worth the 49+ hours.

    In the dark of night, a blood war escalates within the hidden world of the Breed. After existing in secret for many long centuries, maintaining a fragile peace with the humans who walk beside them unaware, a single act of retaliation has put the entire vampire nation at risk of discovery. It falls to the Order—a cadre of Breed warriors pledged to protect their own and humankind alike—to stop Dragos, the power-mad vampire at the center of the conflict, before his push for domination can explode into catastrophe.

    Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?

    The narrarator for this was beyond annoying. The breathy talking was irritating and distracting. While the story was great, I really hope to never have to listen to this narrarator again.

    So what if he's a bit older and usually regards a human female as dinner, not a dinner date? Yes, Roman Draganesti is a vampire, but a vampire who lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lopsided eater for all eternity. Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan either... After witnessing a gruesome murder by the Russian mafia, she's next on their hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she's afraid of blood.

    I won't be reading (listening) to any other books by this author. The main character said "God's blood" repeatedly....irritatingly so. The book moved at a snails pace and was underwhelming in the end.

    I loved this series as a whole, but this book bothered me in that it is character assassination for Katniss. She was just so whiny in this book, that it irritated me. It is worth the read though, and other than that part it is fast paced and well written like the other two books in the series.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Story

    I do not understand what the big deal with this series is all about. Everyone keeps telling me that once you get past the first part of the book, then you will like it. My question is...who can get past the first part of the book??? It is beyond boring. The narrator is monotone. If you you are having problems with insomnia, then just listen to this and you will be asleep in no time.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    I truly believe that this is one of the best book series of all time and this book really kicks everything off. The book is a one dayer for me in that I couldn't put it down and read it straight through. I think that everyone should read this book and the others in the series.
