Great book, good story. I got enthralled in it and found myself wanting to drive around so that I could keep "reading" the story.
This was such an interesting romance. At first, the language threw me off a little because I didn't expect it but once I got into it, I was caught up in the story and all about the romance. I loved both Nick and Norah and wanted things to work out for them. Of course, the entire story takes place within one day so we have no idea what happens to them in the long run but I wanted to feel like they were going to get their happy ever after. I found the writing style to be very unique and interesting. All in all, it was a nice little romance to fill a day at work.
What a terrific book! It was creative, unique, and fun. I loved David's internal monologues. The discussions about word usage. Parts of the book seemed so tongue-in-cheek. Yet it was a wonderful fantasy world. It was a well developed world. I loved that David didn't have any magical powers and that he fought the Epics using his brain and his street wise smarts. I also appreciated the way that Sanderson wasn't afraid to kill off characters. Macleod Andrews did a wonderful job with the narration. This audiobook is well worth the time.
Wow! What a surprise! I was hooked on the first chapter. I fell for Mark Watney and couldn't imagine him not making it home. I loved his ingenuity in coming up with solutions to problems. But most of all, I loved the humor and sarcasm. This book abounded with it and that made it totally entertaining and evened out the seriousness of the situation perfectly. The narrator was perfect for this book. I could easily see myself listening to this book more than once. I have definitely been recommending it to everyone.
I've always been on the fence with Maggie Stiefvater. I loved Shiver but never have been able to get into The Raven Boys (although I haven't given up on it). I'm not really sure why I bought this audiobook but I am so glad I did. This, by far, is the best Stiefvater book I've come across. It's just a beautiful tale and absolutely magical. Stiefvator brought the island to life and I could feel the island air. Puck and Sean were awesome characters and their story was a real romance. It was funny because I wasn't sure how to describe the love story and then at the end of the audiobook there was an interview with the author where she described Sean as a "Mr. Darcy" and I thought that it was the perfect description. He was quiet and dark and brooding but in the end loved fiercely. I was sorry to see this story end as I wanted more. But it was also quite perfect.
Gosh, do I love this series. It appeals to me so much more than the Vampire Academy series did and I loved that series. But I just feel this series more. I think it's because I love Sydney and Adrian so much. They are just the perfect couple. Their chemistry is just out of the ballpark. And the words that come out of Adrian's mouth just make me melt. I live for the lines I hear in these audiobooks and the dream that someday I will hear words like that from a man spoken to me. I also love how there isn't a lot of whether or not they will stay together or break up. They are both confident that they will figure something out - - they just have no clue what they will figure out. That's terrific in my book.
Also, this series has a terrific cast of side characters. I love Eddie, Jill, Angeline and Trey. I would love to see some of them get their own series. There's an idea for another spinoff series. ;)
I really think Emily Schaffer does a great job on the narration of these books. Alden Ford is good also; although, I have to admit I had a hard time getting used to him. This is the first time that dual narrators was used for the series and Mr. Ford's voice changed the voice that had been used for Adrian through both the Vampire Academy series and this series. Plus, Ms. Schaffer changed the voice that she used for Adrian and it took me until halfway through the book to get used to the change. Once I did, I was good with it.
Can't wait for the next book as, of course, this book has a huge cliffhanger.
I remember being slightly underwhelmed with the first book in this series but thinking that I should stick it out because I loved the Soul Screamers series (still one of my favorite series). And I was right. This book was much better than the first book. I liked Faythe so much more in Shifters than I had before and just felt her more overall. But, oh, that ending - it's classic Rachel Vincent. I am definitely much more vested in this series and finding out what happens now. Also, Jennifer Van Dyck is a great narrator.
I'm enjoying these audiobooks a lot. I love the way Roberts writes the couple's stories but at the same time includes the entire family and friends stories too; so we're not having to lose any of our couples. And this setting around the Inn Boonsboro is just perfect. These books have been the perfect getaway during the day making my work life so much more relaxing.
This has been one of my favorite and definitely most entertaining book series. I love the characters and really can not pick a favorite person in the series: Cat, Bones, Denise, Spade, Ian, Vlad, Leila, Don, Fabian - there's just too many to love. I absolutely hate seeing this series come to an end but can totally understand Ms. Frost's feelings that it was time to end Cat and Bones' story. She ended the series very nicely. This book didn't have some of the steamy sex scenes as prior books but there tons of feelings and some different feelings from Cat than we've seen before. I felt like Ian really rose to the occasion in this book and I would love to see Ian finally get his happily ever after. He definitely deserves it now. I loved the way Frost took a chance to bring back all the great characters from prior books and give everyone a chance to make an appearance. It was a true final bow. So, thanks Ms. Frost, for giving us readers this awesome series and I can't wait to see what you unwrap for us next.
I loved this book. It was a fun romance that is classic Nora Roberts. I think my favorite character is the Inn. I love watching the brothers remodel the inn and bring it to fruition. I love the naming of the rooms after famous literary couples that found their happily ever afters. I love that in this book in particular the heroine owns a bookstore. While listening to this book, I found myself looking into the practicalities of making a trip to Inn Boonsboro for myself (and it looks quite doable). At first, I was thrown off a little bit the sound of MacLeod Andrews voice as the narrator of the series. Mostly, I think, because I was expecting a female narrator but once the book got to going, he was perfect.
I'm still trying to decide just what I think about this series and how I feel about it. I like the idea and most of the characters but I'm not sure that I like Georgina and I don't quite know what it means to say that you don't like the main character of the book. And I'm not sure that I don't like her. I just don't understand her. Hopefully that will come as I continue the series because I now that I love with Seth and want to see him get his happily ever after. This book was much better than the first book to me; so, I hope that means that I will like the series better as it goes along.
