    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

    D. S. Smith says: "How the Bloggess almost made me crash my car!"
    "Absolutely Hysterical ! I highly recommend!!!"

    Her quirky tone, it brought a lot to the experience.

    “I’ve spent most of my life trying to make it to a future that still hasn’t happened, or avoid a past that won’t let me go. I don’t remember when I’ve ever just stopped to live in the present, to hold on to the seconds I’m in.”Emma Thomas’s struggle with an abusive home life came to a heart-pounding conclusion in the final chapters of Reason to Breathe, the first installment of The Breathing Series — Rebecca’s Donovan’s bestselling romantic thriller (USA Today). Now her secret life has been exposed, and her tormentor can’t hurt her anymore. Yet, some are still haunted by that night. The bruises may have faded, but scars and fears remain. How will she reclaim her life when she’s barely breathing?

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Barely Breathing the most enjoyable?

    The constant emotions I felt while listening. I truly laughed out loud, almost cried a few time. I listen on the train to work and while walking downtown, I must look a so strange.
    This book and series have just truly pulled me in hook line sinker. I feel the emotions of the characters as if they are my own, as if they are my friends. I feel the pain they feel, the sadness in their lives.


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

    He intonations, her ability to relay true emotion in the words, is outstanding, and unbeatable.


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

    I would sit in my car and listen while sitting in the parking lot if I was driving, i would listen while cooking dinner, yes! I wanted to finish this in one sitting I couldn't wait to hear what happened next.

    In the affluent town of Weslyn, Connecticut, where most people worry about what to be seen in and who to be seen with, Emma Thomas would rather not be seen at all. She’s more concerned with feigning perfection - pulling down her sleeves to conceal the bruises, not wanting anyone to know how far from perfect her life truly is. Without expecting it, she finds love. It challenges her to recognize her own worth - at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide.

    Twenty years ago she had her whole life spread out before her. She was Bess Walsh, a fresh-scrubbed, middle-class student ready to conquer the design world. And she was taken. Absolutely and completely. But not by Andy, her well-groomed, intellectual boyfriend who had hinted more than once about a ring. No. During that hot summer as a waitress and living on the beach, she met Nick, the moody, dark-haired, local bad boy. He was, to put it mildly, not someone she could take home to Daddy.

    If you could sum up Deeper in three words, what would they be?

    Now, Then, WOW


    What did you like best about this story?

    The flashbacks made a great impact on the story. The flow was natural and powerful. The look backs in the given sequence left me wanting more and expecting to hear the other side of things. Looking back gave greater depth to the characters and made me love them, or hate them. even more.


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

    Deeper is the story of a mistake that changed the heart of one woman and the men who loved her.


    Any additional comments?

    Another great story of passion and self-realization by Megan Hart. She pulled me in from the start, kept me coming back and listening for hours at a time, an ending that makes it all come together seamlessly, making me want to seek out another story by her.

    I had everything a woman could want... My husband, James. The house on the lake. My life. Our perfect life. And then Alex came to visit. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. Didn't like how James changed when he was around, didn't like how his penetrating eyes followed me everywhere.

    Fantastic read, kept my attention so well I would sit in my car before work right up to the last minute just so I wouldn't be left hanging. Love scenes of course were wonderful, the characters were relatable, the feelings true and left me, the reader, questioning my own morals and asking....what would I do in that situation. Glad I saw the preview for 'Naked' so I could continue, even in a different sense...great follow-up for anyone that wants to know what happens after Alex leaves.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    What did you love best about The Fault in Our Stars?

    The innocence in the main character and the ability to get a peek into the challenges she faced throughout her life and the story in the book itself.


    What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

    Loved the intonation in her voice. My sister read it in traditional fashion and she lost the fun 'little' things I found endearing, like how she would portray Augustine's way of saying breathlessly 'Hazel Grace'.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, it was recommended to me by my sister, fast read/listen, enjoyed every part and even had watery eyes a few times.

    "I didn't think he wanted me. And I wasn't about to get involved with him, not after what I'd heard. Sure, Alex Kennedy was tall, dark and unbearably hot, but I've been burned before. When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session. And now that we've crossed that line, our bodies aren't the only things that have been exposed."

    Loved it! I was so happy when I saw the summary to know I could continue listening and hear what happened to Alex Kennedy after the 'Tempted' story ended. Some questions answered while others are raised. Very fulfilling. Olivia is a great character, I can relate to her on a level that makes it a great read. Megan Hart has turned me into a fan of this Genre of book.

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    What made the experience of listening to And One Last Thing... the most enjoyable?

    It was written to reflect real life, real emotion and the main character acted on her emotions the way the rest of us wish we could. Molly wrote words to shadow my own thoughts and experiences. The love scenes didn't hurt anything eitther, amazing all around!
