    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I had read the negative reviews on here before this purchase, however, I enjoyed the ghoul series so much that I thought this might really appeal to me....not so much.
    This book was simply annoyingly repetitive. I will stick with this author though and just focus on the ghoul series instead as that one is cute and funny!


    What could Victoria Laurie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Laurie could have come up with some new phrases besides...liar, liar pants on fire....

But there’s no rest for the weary ghost busters. M. J.’s ex comes to her for help - his fiance’s brother Luke seems haunted by a sinister spirit.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a really fun listen! It was very light considering the storyline was so scary. I couldn't wait to get in my car just to hear some more. The romantic scenes were awkward in a cute way. The narrator was easy to listen to as well.

    What disappointed you about Beyond Eden?

    Female narrarator sounds like she has a marble in her mouth or needs to blow her nose or something.... drove me crazy!

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.
