    He was tall, at least six feet, with dirty blond hair that hung over his eyes. His T-shirt read Nietzsche Is My Homeboy. So, that was Matt. Who Julie Seagles likes. A lot. But there is also Finn. Who she flat out loves. Complicated? Awkward? Completely. But really, how was this freshly-minted Boston transplant and newbie college freshman supposed to know that she would end up living with the family of an old friend of her mother’s? This was all supposed to be temporary.

    Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they're witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship - or an early grave.

After growing up in America, she's surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRÍs.

    somehow this book didn't pull me through .. the beginning was fine I guess, but the story is so typical and repeated that I lost interest in the last three or so chapters .. but I will read the second book just so I give the series a right chance to judge it

    Heather never thought she would compete in panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She'd never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought. Dodge has never been afraid of panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game; he's sure of it. But what he doesn't know is that he's not the only one with a secret....

    Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.

    If I had to order my favorites of this series it would be
    1) Anna and the French Kiss
    2) Isla and the happily ever after
    3) Lola and the boy next door
    so it is obvious that I liked Anna's story better than the other but this one was decent and I actually enjoyed the relationship between Josh and Isla .. so I finished this well-written triology and I sure do recommend it to all of you romance junkies out there :)

    The world has ended... What comes next? Smallpox epidemics, floods, droughts—for 16-year old Lucy, the end of the world came and went, stealing with it everyone she ever loved. Even the landscape of her beloved New York City is ever-shifting and full of hidden dangers. As the weather rages out of control, she survives alone in the wilds of Central Park, hunting and foraging for food and making do with the little she has, while avoiding roving scavengers and thieves.

    What did you like best about Ashes, Ashes? What did you like least?

    i liked the world building it was unique and I really could imagine it vividly .. Lucy was a good main character and Loe :'( I loved him so much


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I have mixed feelings because I think there is a second book for this series yet it is not a continuation .. so I don't know what to think


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

    she have a voice of a narrator and I liked her performance very much specially for Henry and Leo and grammile rose :)


    Could you see Ashes, Ashes being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I think so .. but with better adjustments to the characters .. Maybe Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer


    Any additional comments?

    I was so excited to read this book but it disappointed me in some ways .. I didn't enjoy it that much but the world building is very good

    What made the experience of listening to Crash into You the most enjoyable?

    The narration was more than good and it really got me in the mood for the story .. also some of the scenes were much better on voice than if I had read them


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    nothing about the narration .. but the story itself didn't add up well with me


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I had multi favorite scenes one of them was when Rachel wanted to say the speech and Isiah didn't care and parched in to save her .. so cute


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

    Love speed .. pay the price

    this book was very nice but I preferred the second book dare you to more

    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.

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

    it is only one character which are the authors


    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

    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.

    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 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.

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

    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
