    In this frank and funny book, Courtney Rubin shares what she learned about dieting, and herself, in more than two years of chronicling her battle to keep food from consuming her life. As engaging as her famous column, The Weight-Loss Diaries is part memoir, part how-to, and always entertaining.

    I loved this book. It gives humor and sanity to those of us who are constant dieters who also love to binge. This is not a diet book. It made me laugh at myself. If your a little depressed over your new diet you will enjoy this book.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    Story

    Ms Harris has always said she writes for herself and I believe it after this one. Very selfish Ms Harris you obviously don't care about your fans. Totally different than the other books, but not better. Its not worth the paper its written on. Don't waste your money. I'm glad this was the last one in this series. I will never buy another one of her books.

    Callis Rose is a girl blessed with a gift from above or cursed with a ruthless power she barely understands; it's really just a matter of degrees. As her family life is turned asunder she is thrown into an indifferent Social Services program where she defends herself the only way she knows how. Callis is moved from home to home until she finally settles at the Lowries. As she starts her first day of high school she meets both her favorite and least favorite person. Both happen to be part of the same household.

    This is not one of Mark Tufo's Zombie books.... it's actually scarier than the Zombie books! He makes you care about Callis and then be scared of her and for her at the same time. The only thing I didn't get was the last 2 sentences. So I loved the book except for the last 6 seconds. LOL Don't let that throw you off the book though. This book is definately worth the listen!!!

    The year is 2011, and what starts as a pervasive and inexplicable illness ends up as a zombie infestation that devastates the world's population. Taking the form of a biologist's journal found in the aftermath of the attack, this pulse-pounding, suspenseful tale of zombie apocalypse follows the narrator as he flees from city to countryside and heads north to Canada, where he hopes the undead will be slowed by the colder climate.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this audio diary of this mans journey through the Zombie apocalypse. It's not a real long story and you don't really get to know most of the different people he meets, but you get to know him, his thoughts and what he is going through. When he was making the diary you can hear the people he's talking to, dogs barking and noises in the background and that made it feel very real for me. The ending gave me goose bumps! This is a good book and is definately worth a listen.

    In a pulls-no-punches essay intended to provoke rational discussion, Stephen King sets down his thoughts about gun violence in America. Anger and grief in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School are palpable in this urgent piece of writing, but no less remarkable are King's keen thoughtfulness and composure as he explores the contours of the gun-control issue and constructs his argument for what can and should be done.

    I loved this audio. Thank you Stephen for speaking out about this subject. I agree with you about the gun control issue and hope Congress will do the right thing. It's very scary to think so many people die everyday from guns.

    Story

    It was a joy hearing Dracula from Mina’s perspective. Dracula was written from a man’s point of view since, of course, Bram Stoker was a man. There was no insight into what the feelings and relationship was between Dracula and the women in his story.

    Dracula, My Love gives you the story as it could have been with the inside scoop from Mina and Dracula. It lets you see the other side of the story. Dracula is a wonderful horror book, but personally left me wanting more. Dracula, My Love completed the story for me!

    What happens when The Firm meets Anita Blake? You get the Halls of Power - our modern world, but twisted. Law, finance, the military, and politics are under the sway of long-lived vampires, werewolves, and the elven Alfar. Humans make the best of rule by “the Spooks”, and contend among themselves to affiliate with the powers-that-be, in order to avoid becoming their prey. Very loyal humans are rewarded with power over other women and men. Very lucky humans are selected to join the vampires.

    I really enjoyed this book. It has a fresh and very interesting story that I couldn't stop listening to. I don't know what the other reviewer was talking about there being to much talk about horses and food, that's crazy. It wasn't too much. The horses were an interesting hobby and I don't see anything wrong with humans eating food. LOL This story has a good legal mystery, romance, hot sex, vampires, weres, fae and never a dull moment. I highly recommend it and I can't wait for the second book in the series. Therese Plummer has a wonderful voice for all the characters!!

    Loved the book except for the very end. It's funny, romantic and sexy with a good story and enjoyable characters. It has a good ending except... for the last minute. The Author didn't really finish the story of Alexa and Nick. There should have been something more at the end instead of starting another book with Maggy and Michael. Hello!! You have to have that last AHHH moment which this doesn't have. Other than that it's a really good romantic comedy.

    This is the funniest book! I loved the part with Dick Chaney and the rest of the gang. I love it that all the people from all the books know each other in some way. It's like coming home. Very hilarious and sexy book! It's better if you read all the books, but it would still be good if you only read this one.

    Turned into a vampire against her will, 28-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago's vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye - and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined. And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing - among humans or inhumans. Now Merit is on the hunt, charging across the stark American Midwest, tailing a rogue supernatural intent on stealing an ancient artifact that could unleash catastrophic evil on the world. But Merit is also the prey.

    Story

    The story was pretty good, but not the best. The relationship issue is getting old though. Chloe Neill needs to learn how to write a love scene. I hate books that have the characters kiss and then it's the next day or it says "sometime later" or "afterward". That's a cop-out. Six books now and the romance is pretty boring. Pretty good action, but again, not the best. Nothing like a Jeaniene Frost book.

    I loved this book. The series gets better with each installment. Lots of different Fae characters each with different powers. Strong beautiful Vampires with plenty of Vampire politics. Plenty of action, a good mystery and a some nice romance. I highly recommend.
