    For the first time since she escaped from her school many months ago, Eve can sleep soundly. She's living in Califia, a haven for women, protected from the terrifying fate that awaits orphaned girls in The New America. But her safety came at a price: She was forced to abandon Caleb, the boy she loves, wounded and alone at the city gates. When Eve gets word that Caleb is in trouble, she sets out into the wild again to rescue him, only to be captured and brought to the City of Sand, the capital of The New America.

    What did you like best about Once? What did you like least?

    I liked how did Eve grew up and matured a lot since the first book , but I didn't like how the events are moving super slowly in comparison with the first book which was one of my favorites


    Would you be willing to try another book from Anna Carey? Why or why not?

    yeah sure .. this book wasn't so bad and I already read Eve and I LOVED it .. looking forward to the next book


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    her speed of narration was so good , I didn't even have to fast forward it like most of the books


    Was Once worth the listening time?

    yeah .. because I wanted to read it so badly


    Any additional comments?

    I actually wanted to give this one a full five stars like the first book , but something in it just ticked me off .. but it was good though

    Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wakeup call to all women who want to be thin. With such blunt advice as "soda is liquid Satan" and "you are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin", it's a rallying cry for all savvy women to start eating healthy and looking radiant. Unlike standard diet books, it actually makes the reader laugh out loud with its truthful, smart-mouthed revelations.

    Talking about the cruelty bestowed upon animals I dont thinkbI can digest their meat again


    Which character – as performed by Renee Raudman – was your favorite?

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Use your own head and never trust anyone with your body .. its your life go live it


    Any additional comments?

    This book is for people who want the hard core truth .. you should have a sense of humor and an open mind for it

    In this follow-up to Austenland, Charlotte Kinder is eager to escape the numbness she feels after her divorce. Deciding to get away, she visits the Regency-themed Pembrook Park resort in England, where talented actors set the perfect scene. But with everyone playing a role, it’s hard to distinguish reality from fantasy. So when Charlotte’s heart stirs, she wonders if she’s simply caught up in the experience - or if her ability to feel is finally returning.

    Jennifer says: "Charlotte talks to herself way too much!"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Well, not exactly.. I just don't like mystery stories without a love interest .. I do get that this is a self-discovery story but I did prefer if there was a better love interest


    Would you be willing to try another book from Shannon Hale? Why or why not?

    Yes Absolutely, I would like that very much


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

    her narration is just amazing it's like seeing a play in front of you .. she has a depth of voice that convince you of each character .. I wouldn't have imagined there accents like that


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    there wasn't much romance going in the story .. but I did like the romantic twist at the end


    Any additional comments?

    this book is for mystery lovers .. it brings a new angel to austen world

  • Foodist: Using Real Food and Real Science to Lose Weight Without Dieting

    Foodist is an approach that actually celebrates food while taking you through the nutrition and psychology involved in eating well to help you move beyond the daily obstacles and bad habits that keep the tasteless, empty, and unsatisfying food-like products on your plate. Losing weight no longer has to be about sacrifice, deprivation, and willpower, and food will turn from something you fight into something you can actually love again. As Darya writes, "You don't need a diet. You need an upgrade."

    Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    I have to say it's Mrs.charming .. she was so funny


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the last scene of the story was good how the love triangle finally got resolved


    Any additional comments?

    In comparison with the movie I found that the movie was much more entertaining but the story is cute and different .. it's like seeing two versions of the same story

    Weeeelllll, this was a very good book for a beginner in the diet world and don't know where to begin.. each chapter was written smartly to cover the three main aspects of this book ( Eat , Move , Sleep )
    so I kinda liked that .. I agree with the author with the sleeping tips and the exercising part, but for the "right" diet part I have to say .. being a Vegan for almost 8 months now I have some issues with his guidelines .. I would recommend this book to whoever is out there wanting to begin his/her fitness journey and need some good reliable information to apply in their lives

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

    it was well spent because it did have many examples to prove a point ( Habits can shape your life ) but it was too much examples that got me bored in the middle


    If you’ve listened to books by Charles Duhigg before, how does this one compare?

    no .. but I hope he improves by now


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes .. the narration was very good


    Was The Power of Habit worth the listening time?

    not entirely .. it could be more intense and straight to the point


    Any additional comments?

    this book has some good points .. too bad it is covered with too much stories and examples that may or may not be related to the point

When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart. Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes....

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    the narrator was a bit stiff .. and the story is just one hell of a mess


    Has Thoughtless turned you off from other books in this genre?

    yes .. I don't like books about cheating and affairs it just turns me off so bad


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Rebekkah Ross?

    Maybe .. I will listen to the second book in this series ( sadly )


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Thoughtless?

    I would re-write the whole story with the same hero .. Kellin is soo cool .. Kiera is the b*tch in the whole story


    Any additional comments?

    The writing style is soo good but the story is so messy and annoying
