    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.

    Overall

    For someone who loves romance and girly things I took a chance on this from a review made by Stephenie Meyer. I am so happy I did. This was absolutely brilliant. Collins discreptions help you imagine you are right there in the story. The story itself is so unique and fast paced you finish wondering how you got through it so fast. I even started giving this book out for gifts and talked my husband into listening. It is such a great story and I cannot wait to finish the series.

    Born mute, speaking only in sign, Edgar Sawtelle leads an idyllic life with his parents and an unusual breed of dogs on their farm in remote northern Wisconsin. But when tragedy strikes the Sawtelle family, Edgar flees to the surrounding wilderness. He comes of age in the wild, fighting for his survival and that of the three yearling dogs who follow him.

    "Do not listen to Stephen King"
    Overall

    I read that Stephen King said there were too many good books out there to read the same book twice. But, he would read this again.

    For an author and quite a well known author of good story telling he has absolutely no taste.

    This book was too long and drawn out for the bitter end. I'd listen for an hour and have to stop for a couple days to keep from the boredom this book brought into my life.

    Don't waste your time.

    With no other family and a life spent in and out of institutions, Aden and the souls have become friends. But now they're causing him all kinds of trouble. Like, he'll blink and suddenly he's a younger Aden, reliving the past. One wrong move, and he'll change the future. Or he'll walk past a total stranger and know how and when she's going to die. He's so over it. All he wants is peace. And then he meets a girl who quiets the voices. Well, as long as he's near her. Why? Mary Ann Gray is his total opposite.

    Overall

    The only reason I could not give this book 5 stars was because there was no resolution to the story. I hate being sucked in and wanting more and find out the author is not releasing the sequel for another year. I did however love Showalter's writing and idea for the story and believe it could be a great series once finished.

    At the start of this breathtaking novel, Ever's beloved Damen has been poisoned. If she gets too close to him, it will activate the poison and bring about a swift and painful death. To break the curse, Ever travels to Summerland and immerses herself in magick - and receives help from a new friend. Although she and Jude have only just met, Ever is mysteriously drawn to him, for he feels startlingly familiar.

    Overall

    I listened to the first book in the series and thought "It's no Vampire Academy or Twilight" but it's worth a listen.

    I made it onto the second book and was totally frustrated with the way it ended and knew I had to read the third to see any resolution.

    Now however, I wish I had never read or listened to any of them. Such a waste of time.

    It's like Noel is prolonging our agoney for more book sales by adding new characters and conflicts for the main characters.

    Really, do we need new conflict and problems when you have no resolution to the first two books?

    The series has reached the point where you will no doubt be irritated and upset by the end of the series. She has only left the possibility of a very terrible ending. You know where everything is summed up in five short minutes after you listened for 50 hours. Just get it over with already and stop wasting our time.

    St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

    Overall

    This book is fabulous. I absolutely loved it. I felt like Rose was a complete mixture of Buffy and Bella. I am a mom of a teen. I bought this thinking after the Twilight commotion we could have something else to read together and discuss. We absolutely loved this book. We were on vacation when we listened to this and the second book and were very upset we could not down load the third yet. So, we went out and bought the third book while we wait for it to come out on audible.
