    She could save the world - or destroy it. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline 'Evie' Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future - and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. But she can't do either alone.

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

    I did not read the print book but I think the audio would be better b/c of the accents and french words.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Poison Princess?

    The ending :*


    Which scene was your favorite?

    So many scenes I loved. I would have to say that Jackson talking are my favorites :)


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    When it appears the world has ended and you find your new beginning, how will you fair?


    Any additional comments?

    This story was AMAZING! I am a new Kresley Cole fan and I am HOOKED!

    In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeen year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck.

    I loved this book. I really did. I read this book a long time ago and had to experience it on audio. I am so glad I did. Author Gayle Forman has an incredible talent that rivals no other when it comes to real life emotion, people and situations. this book is a MUST READ and then go find book two because you HAVE to read on to find out how this amazing story plays out.

    It's been three years since the devastating accident... three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever. Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock-star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other.

    Story

    OK I am not sure if a book has ever had me on such an emotional roller coaster. I was so literally mad at points I almost stopped reading! I could not believe how these characters were acting but yet also understood totally! Author Gayle Forman is totally brilliant in so many ways that I cannot even begin to express how I feel about her writing. This book is by far the best book I have read in a long time emotional wise. I do not, as a rule, read "real life books". I get enough real life every single day. I try to stick with "that could never happen in a million years kind of books". I like to escape from life, not relive it when I read. HOWEVER...I loved the first book and there was NO WAY I could pass up finding out how this story played out. I AM SO GLAD I kept going. WELL DONE GAYLE WELL DONE!

    When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade - a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

    I really enjoyed this book. The ending was a HUGE cliffhanger which i have grown to live with (not that I love it but live with it) but expect it. I am SERIOUSLY looking forward to the next book. I am so loving these dystopian books. Author James Dashner has a BRILLIANT imagination. This book for some reason reminded me of the classic Lord of the Flies even though I don't really think it had ANYTHING to do with it but still that book popped into my mind. SO VERY WELL DONE JAMES!!!!!

    Josselyn has just spent the last three months in intense Line of Defense training so she could join Malcolm's search party. Little did she know the archangels had no intention of letting her bring back into Heaven an angel who had opened a portal between Heaven and Hell, at least not before saving God's creations from the tight grasp of Lucifer first.

Your characters are so easy to love. I found myself laughing, gasping, holding my breath and mad as hell all within paragraphs. The characters are so easy to relate to. The narration is AMAZING and the voices are so easy to tell apart. There is NOTHING I would change at all about this book. Ok one thing...make it about 16 hours longer??? LOL...ok only kidding a little bit :)

But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies.

    After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.

    Author Deborah Harkness is a sheer genius. Her writing transports you into a magical world of witches, vampires and demons that weaves a spell of history, beauty and art within a magical story line that makes you wish you were part of the historic Clairmont family. To be a witch, a Weaver would be the best thing ever in the way that this author writes it.

With threats lurking around every corner, Evie is forced to trust her newfound alliance. Together they must fight not only other Arcana, but also Bagmen zombies, post-apocalyptic storms, and cannibals

    I think Poison Princess help my attention a bit more but I am still very curious to see what book 3 brings. I am still very much so interested in this series. I think book 2 took a very different turn than I expected so that is a great thing.
