    This is what happened: I met him at the candy store. He turned and smiled at me and I was surprised enough to smile back. This was not a children's candy store, mind you, this was the kind of place you went to buy expensive imported chocolate truffles for your boss' wife because you felt guilty for having sex with him when you were both at a conference in Milwaukee.

    This was a good book. I'm glad i chose it despite the previous reviews. There's a good amount of erotica with deep story content nicely intertwined. I laughed, i cried, i couldn't help but be engrossed in the story.

    You have to be crazy to try and pull off her stunts in this book. Fun story! I highly recommend it.

    Hot off the success of her best-selling Can You Keep a Secret?, Sophie Kinsella delivers another hilarious Becky Bloomwood novel. When last we left Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood), she and Luke had just married and she'd unveiled her big honeymoon surprise...around-the-globe plane tickets. World-weary 10 months later, the newlyweds return home filled with excitement to share the details of their amazing escapades.

    Kim says: "My least favourite of the Shopaholic books"
    "My lease favorite so far"
    Overall

    I love all of the previous books in the series but I was pretty annoyed with Becky in this story. She was really spoiled and I had to question why Luke claimed to be in love with her. I need a break from Becky for now so i won't be reading Shopaholic and Baby just yet.

    Armed only with a frying pan and her common sense, Tiffany Aching, a young witch-to-be, is all that stands between the monsters of Fairyland and the warm, green Chalk country that is her home. Forced into Fairyland to seek her kidnapped brother, Tiffany allies herself with the Chalk's local Nac Mac Feegle, aka the Wee Free Men, a clan of sheep-stealing, sword-wielding, six-inch-high blue men who are as fierce as they are funny.

    Richard says: "First Sight and Second Thoughts"
    "This book had it's moments."
    Overall

    I saw that this was the first book in a 3 book series so i thought i'd start with this one. Although the story was good, it wasn't great and i won't be getting the following two books. I wish i liked it because the other books have great reviews.

    Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever. Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations.

    Thomas says: "Neverwhere is Great"
    "Loved this book"
    Overall

    This is a fun story. You won't regret getting this book. The narrator is easy to listen to.

    The Automatic Millionaire starts with the powerful story of an average American couple (he's a low-level manager, she's a beautician), whose joint income never exceeds $55,000 a year, who somehow manage to own two homes debt-free, put two kids through college, and retire at 55 with more than $1 million in savings.

    Jonathan says: "Common sense, but..."
    "I'm sure there's good information..."
    Overall

    ...in there somewhere. I couldn't stand his voice and how he mumbled and ate his words. The things he suggested were also a bit too complicated. Maybe it's better in paperback form b/c he's constantly giving you lists which include phone numbers and a website. Didn't finish the book, i didn't think it was helping me. I suggest reading Dave Ramsey's book instead.

    Okay, folks, do you want to turn those fat and flabby expenses into a well-toned budget? Do you want to transform your sad and skinny little bank account into a bulked-up cash machine?

It's the simplest, most straight-forward game plan for completely making over your money habits. And it's based on results, not pie-in-the-sky fantasies.

    Gladis says: "Awesome advise"
    "Really glad i decided on this book"
    Overall

    I like the sometimes comedic tone of Dave Ramsey's voice. I learned a lot from him. It was an easy listen. I also downloaded The Automatic Millionaire by Bach, i couldn't stand his voice and i didn't finish the book... It was also a bit complicated. You won't necessarily agree with everything Dave Ramsey suggests but it's a good listen and you'll walk away in better shape.

    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.

    Overall

    This was exactly what i was hoping it would be... A great story... The sex scenes were not just steamy, the descriptions were beautifully written and read. This book is definitely intense. It's going to be hard to follow this one.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Sandra says: "Utterly Awesome!"
    "Wasn't very fond of the narrator"
    Overall

    I wasn't motivated enough to listen to part 2 of this audiobook because i couldn't stand the narrator. The story was great but i was often distracted by what sounded to me like an electronic or computerized voice. He also spoke too fast to the point where i couldn't understand what he was saying. I guess i was spoiled by the clear narration of Jim Dale for the Harry Potter books. Hope i have better luck for my next pick.
