    Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love.

    I kind of expected more, but I still really enjoyed it. The characters are well written and the story is slow, but you don't notice.

    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

    There's a reason that they are trying to make it into a movie. It wasn't life changing, but it kept me hooked. That's all I ask!

    Ten years after graduation, Jake "the jock" Campbell and Brandon "the nerd" Bartlett are teaching at their old high school and still living in separate worlds. When Brandon is thrown into a coaching job on Jake's baseball team, they find themselves learning more about each other than they'd ever expected. High school is all about image - even for the teachers. Brandon and Jake have to get past their preconceived notions to find the friendship needed to work together.

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

    Lot's of sex scenes. The story is cute. A little cliché, but hey, better than most gay fiction.

    Six months after nearly losing their lives to a serial killer in New York City, FBI Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are suffering through something almost as frightening: the monotony of desk duty. When they're ordered to take a vacation for the good of everyone's sanity, Ty bites the bullet and takes Zane home with him to West Virginia, hoping the peace and quiet of the mountains will give them the chance to explore the explosive attraction they’ve so far been unable to reconcile with their professional partnership.

    If you could sum up Sticks and Stones in three words, what would they be?

    Captivating, funny, appropriately sexual


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Zane I guess... I picture myself as Tye, so maybe he's my favorite.


    Which character – as performed by Sawyer Allerde – was your favorite?

    Tye


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

    Uh, twisted stomach...


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't like the narrator on the first book, and it's the same guy on this one, BUT after listening to the others (they switched narrators), I love him. He's way better than the guy on 3/4.

    An erotic gay romance, a suspenseful thriller.... A series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents assigned to the investigation are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case. Special Agent Ty Grady is pulled out of undercover work. He's cocky, abrasive, and indisputably the best at what he does.

    Zion says: "Stunned and surprised."

    Would you listen to Cut and Run again? Why?

    I love fiction, but usually have a hard time with gay characters, because they are so cheesy. I fell in love with these two boys, though. It's a bit cheesy and the narrator needs to slow down and get better at girls voices, but still, I love it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Zane....I used to have a crush on a guy that reminded me so much of him...or at least I made Zane into him, haha.


    Any additional comments?

    Parts are hot without being bad erotica....

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Story

    This story isn't complicated and very Lord of the Rings, but it's still capturing. I enjoy the book (I read it myself), but this reader does not do it justice. I could deal with most of it, but his voice for Safira is laughable.
