    Covering up her own murder was one thing, but faking life is much harder than Kaylee Cavanaugh expected. After weeks spent "recovering", she's back in school, fighting to stay visible to the human world, struggling to fit in with her friends and planning time alone with her new reaper boyfriend. But to earn her keep in the human world, Kaylee must reclaim stolen souls, and when her first assignment brings her face-to-face with an old foe, she knows the game has changed.

    If you could sum up Before I Wake in three words, what would they be?

    addicting, heartbreaking, entertaining


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tod, amazingly supportive and devoted to Kaylee.


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

    emotion, gives great visuals to characters reactions to each other through vocals, timing


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

    yes, but it was the climax and I'm not going to spoil anybody. Very heartbreaking what Kaylee has to go through in this book


    Any additional comments?

    this book gets better with each addition to the series. I highly recommend it, one of my favorites of all time

    Mirabelle’s past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents’ tragic deaths to her guardians’ half-truths about why she can’t return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday - and discovers a world she never could have imagined. In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems - the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples, the obnoxious playboy who’s a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for damsels in distress.

    Would you try another book from Sarah Cross and/or Kim Mai Guest?

    Maybe from Sarah Cross and definitely from Kim Mai, she did great


    What was most disappointing about Sarah Cross’s story?

    The story really fell flat for me, it would have made a better novella. There was a lot of filler and really predictable, good for more of 13-15 aged girls.


    Which character – as performed by Kim Mai Guest – was your favorite?

    she did great narration overall, I didn't have a favorite character


    Was Kill Me Softly worth the listening time?

    Not in my opinion, but I do think younger girls would enjoy this


    Any additional comments?

    I just think I would have enjoyed the story more if it were more compact into a 100-150pg novella instead of all the extra filler and characters
