    You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits. There's Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it's windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He's the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He's pretty much irresistible.

    Couldn't put it down! I also couldn't decide which boy I liked better. I loved getting to know the characters from a young age(even though I was a little confused at first) keep listening!

    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?

    When Kellan’s band gains stardom, Kiera and Kellan’s relationship is put to the ultimate test. Can their love for each other withstand the constant pressure of superstardom? The friendships they’ve formed, the new family they’ve found, and the history they’ve forged will all play a part in helping them navigate the turbulent waters of the band’s exploding popularity. A greedy executive hell-bent on success, a declining pop star looking for an edge, and a media circus that twists lies into truths are just some of the obstacles the lovers will have to overcome if they are going to remain together.

    I was very impressed with the depth of this as a third book. I just love their love! It didn't leave me with questions and I was happy with where things ended up. A must read if you have read the others.

    This exciting finale to Lauren Olive's New York Times best-selling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States. Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven.

    New to town, Bea is expecting her new best friend to be one of the girls she meets on the first day. You know the type: very cheery, very friendly, very average. But instead, the alphabet conspires to seat her next to Jonah, aka Ghost Boy, a quiet observer who hasn’t made a new friend since third grade. He’s not a big fan of people in general... but he’s willing to make an exception for her. Maybe.

    The protagonist was hard for me to relate to. Although, I am sure, some girls have a high school experience where they would hate to have the hottest boy in school try and date them I just didn't have that experience. I may have loved to hang out with some of the stranger kids in school some of the reactions from our heroin are reaching.

    Don't get me wrong...this was entertaining and very different than the usual YA book.

    Great Performance and amazing voices!

    A girl who believes trust can be misplaced, promises are made to be broken, and loyalty is an illusion. A boy who believes truth is relative, lies can mask unbearable pain, and guilt is eternal. Will what they find in each other validate their conclusions, or disprove them all?

    Story

    This was a great book. I finished it quickly and was on the edge of my seat with the twists and turns. I did not like the narrator. I think she would be great to be on the evening news giving the hard hitting stories but was not great to portray a 20 year old college girl. Although, she was not great for this book, I would still recommend this audio version.

    It's been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents' divorce - or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live.A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac.

    The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand. Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid.

    I loved this book! I loved the relationships and the growth of Remy. So relatable. Maybe not the fight club but still the college experience. I absolutely loved it. I can't stop thinking about it!

    In The Truth About Forever, Dessen depicts a young woman coming to terms with the tragic death of her father. Macy Queen likes order and control, that's the only way she can keep her grief from consuming her. But a summer spent working with a boy named Wes slowly begins to thaw the ice that's been surrounding Macy's heart. Wes teaches her that forever isn't always about goodbyes and love doesn't always have to hurt.

    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The recording was choppy...There were moments where all I could hear was the saliva in the narrators mouth. So gross and distracting.

    "You can't touch me," I whisper. I'm lying, is what I don't tell him. He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him. But things happen when people touch me. Strange things. Bad things. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own.

    Any additional comments?

    This book was to say the least strange in the first few chapters. The narrator was soft spoken for effect but it was distracting and at times I could not hear what she had said. Once I got to the second half I was very intrigued and excited to listen but I almost stopped reading before I got to that point. In the end I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
