    Like so many women in today's society, Valerie Frankel's world was dictated by her weight, from starvation and binge eating to her self-loathing and total preoccupation with her weight. Not wanting to pass this legacy on to her own daughters, Valerie set out to cleanse herself of these painful and damaging cycles.

    "Was hoping for more motivation"
    Overall

    If you want a bio of Valerie Frankel, this is for you. If you are looking for some motivation, keep looking. I also thought it was going to be funny... not so much...

  • Dead Until Dark: Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery #1

    Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She's quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn't get out much - not because she's not pretty - she's a very cute bubbly blonde - or not interested in a social life. She really is . . . but Sookie's got a bit of a disability. She can read minds.

    A User says: "Fangtastic!"
    "LOVE IT!!"
    Overall

    I wasn't sure if I should start with the first book, since I've already seen the TV series, but I am so happy I did. The book is better than the show. I don't want to listen to anything else until I finish the series.

    Cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse is having a streak of bad luck. First her co-worker is killed. Then she comes face to-face with a beastly creature that gives her a painful and poisonous lashing. Enter the vampires, who graciously suck the poison from her veins (like they didn't enjoy it). The point is: they saved her life. So when one of them asks for a favour, she obliges - and soon Sookie's in Dallas, using her telepathic skills to search for a missing vampire.

    Rae says: "Loved It"
    "Addicting!"
    Overall

    I've never gone through audio books faster than this series. I'm so happy there are still 7 more to go!

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "Slow start.."
    Overall

    The first few hours of the book were a challenge. It didn't pull me in and I really wondered what all the excitement was about. Eventually I got hooked and enjoyed the ride. I will buy the next book in the series.

  • Sh-t My Dad Says

    After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, 28-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his 73-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,” has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him.

    Michael says: "Really Funny! Should Be Up for an Audie Award"
    "ROFL"
    Overall

    This is such a funny book! I made the mistake of listening to it on a long train ride. I'm sure the people sitting close to me thought I was crazy for laughing out loud so often.
