    This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx, is all Nikki Sixx. It is a collection of compelling photography and stories that capture the rage, love, optimism, darkness, and determination that shape his work.

    Story

    This is good book not just for Nikki Sixx fans but for everyone. He makes you open your eyes and see that we should find beauty in everything not just what is considered beautiful by the media. He released some of his own inner demons and in the process encourages you to do the same thing. If you read the Heroin Diaries then listen to this book you can really hear how much his life has changed, how he went from being a junkie to happy man and it encourages you to work at making your life happier. This book takes you on a journey of finding beauty within yourself so you can be happier.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Would you try another book from Deborah Harkness and/or Jennifer Ikeda?

    No. The book was so slow and I found it tedious. I bought the book based soley on the reviews of the book and the narrator and I have no idea why so everyone loves it so much. I found it boring.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Deborah Harkness again?

    Probably not


    What three words best describe Jennifer Ikeda’s voice?

    competent, diverse, consistent


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No

    Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband, Bones, have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance.

    With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage.

    If you could sum up This Side of the Grave in three words, what would they be?

    That was excellent!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of This Side of the Grave?

    The intimate scene in this book scorched my ears.


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

    Tavia Gilbert is a genius narrator. She truly is a wonderful actress and gives each character a distinct voice. I typically don't like female narrators because they can't do a mans voice. I completely forgot this was just one narrator and became so engrossed in the story that I frequently jumped and yelled in reaction to the suspense.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely!


    Any additional comments?

    It is a very good story made even better by the Tavia. Every audible book should be read by her. Tavia has ruined me for other narrators!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.
