    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    i could not stop listening to this! I was enthralled within minutes of listening.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book gave me chills. The way Flynn writes her characters are so real. And i like how the ending isnt all happily ever after.


    Any additional comments?

    HUGE!! fan of this author. will continue to read/listen to anything that she writes

    Warriors Kaleb and Aya will stop at nothing to destroy their competition. But when Kaleb finds his fate entwined with that of Mallory, a 17-year-old human girl, he can’t seem to separate the vicious Carnival contest he’s entered from his sudden devotion to her. He and Aya may be prizefighters from the otherworldly Untamed City, but his strange, obsessive connection makes staying away from the witch-ruled human world, and Mallory, harder every day.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I was not a fan of the character Mallory but i enjoyed the story overall


    What does James Marsters bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was amazing as the narrator! I would listen to anything that he did! The subtle changes he made in his voice for each character were outstanding!

    Code Name Verity is a compelling, emotionally rich story with universal themes of friendship and loyalty, heroism and bravery. Two young women from totally different backgrounds are thrown together during World War II: one a working-class girl from Manchester, the other a Scottish aristocrat, one a pilot, the other a wireless operator. Yet whenever their paths cross, they complement each other perfectly and before long become devoted friends. But then a vital mission goes wrong....
