    Every morning, A wakes in a different person’s body, a different person’s life. There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere. It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply....

    Story

    The story is about a non-gender soul, travelling each day at midnight to a new body, taking over this persons life for a day. That - in it self - seems interesting enough BUT, it is a mess trying to keep up with all theese different gay and straight people all tangeld together, and adding to this, that the soul falls in love and keeps trying to be with this love of his/her life, with only moments of succes, is just downright depressing. If you are anything like me, suffering with your main characters all the way to the end of each book, you will need a great deal of strength and happy thoughts to get through it, and if you seek classic happy-ending books - you might might want to reconsider all together.

    Is there really such thing as a lucky charm? The hero of Nicholas Sparks's new novel believes he's found one in the form of a photograph of a smiling woman he's never met, but who he comes to believe holds the key to his destiny. The chain of events that leads to him possessing the photograph and finding the woman pictured in it is the stuff of love stories only a master such as Sparks can write.

    Story

    I liked it a lot, but it is a very slow narrator and sometimes I got just a little bored. Thats why it made me want to see the movie, as they tend to cut out a lot in order to only keep the esentials. Overall the storyline is very nice though and I gave it four stars for the romanceplot.

    It was supposed to be simple. All Navy SEAL Nathan Malone had to do was rescue three young girls from a Colombian drug cartel, then allow himself to be captured just long enough to draw out a government spy. That was before his mission went disastrously wrong… and before his wife, Bella, was told that Nathan was never coming home. Bella’s mourned her husband’s death for three long years, having no idea that he was still alive....

    Seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, bookworm and band geek, plays second clarinet and spends her time tucked safely and happily in the shadow of her fiery older sister Bailey. But when Bailey dies abruptly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage of her own life — and, despite her nonexistent history with boys, suddenly finds herself struggling to balance two. Toby was Bailey’s boyfriend; his grief mirrors Lennie’s own. Joe is the new boy in town, a transplant from Paris whose nearly magical grin is matched only by his musical talent.

    I have loved Stephanie and the Twilight books forever, but this is just wrong!! I could not wrap my head around it, and I forund the story not only repulsive but even worse extremely dull! You could cut out every other page and not even notice it... Stay away before it really ruins your relationship to Stephanie Meyer all together.

    You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits. There's Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it's windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He's the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He's pretty much irresistible.

    After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: a terrifying ability to channel electricity and to see a person's darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude ... until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world's most infamous vampire. Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all - but whatever you do, don't call him Dracula.

    Story

    Well, if you are into light housewifeporn, this is just the thing. I myself seek the fantasy romance novells, so I must say, that I was a bit surprised... I choose the book due to its supernatural elements, but I soon discovered, that the supernatural elements were just a nice way of hiding the real content of the book (read sex and the word "thrust" a lot). I am not saying it is bad, but if it is love and happy ever-after stories you seek, this is not the place to look.

    Story

    If you are in the mood for a british humored story, this is just the thing. Lots of embarassing moments, off key singing (yes - she really does sing), a lot of confusing texts and e-mails and little bit of love, but no big exclamations and only a few kisses. I did like the stoy, but it did not, as many other books have, keep me up at night. It a story you listen to, just for the fun of it, but is is not a story waiting for a sequal. I am normally mostly interested in romance fantasy books, but it did make for a nice little break, and I did laugh several times. If you are a Bridget Jones-type of girl - this is your type of book!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Story

    Yes, it is every bit as good, as everyone says, and adding my own memories of the film as well, it was extremely vivid and oveall fantastic. I get a bit sad every time Jacob at 90 - or 93 (you will get it once you listen) explains about his current life in the home, but as you probably already know, it will all turn out great afterall. If you are in the mood for a great story, with no book 2, 3, 4 ,5 etc. to get through, before getting the final answers, just sit back and enjoy!
