    If you could sum up The Spirit Clearing in three words, what would they be?

    Got through it finally


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I felt like the story went no where I was always "wondering where's this going?"


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    More descriptive narration. When at the climax I still feel like he was reading the story as it was the beginning.


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

    This is a after school special at best.

    Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.

    It took me a little bit to understand the narrative of this book but once I started liking the characters the more I liked to listen to her. This is a book about the lives of people behind closed doors basically. Then it all comes crashing down at a school function. I won't lie this was a good book.

    To stop her sadistic grandfather, Saul, and his band of time travelers from rewriting history, Kate must race to retrieve the CHRONOS keys before they fall into the Cyrists’ hands. If she jumps back in time and pulls the wrong key - one that might tip off the Cyrists to her strategy - her whole plan could come crashing down, jeopardizing the future of millions of innocent people. Kate’s only ally is Kiernan, who also carries the time-traveling gene.

    Kiernan Dunne abandoned his family ties to help Kate fight the Cyrists, and he's never regretted that for one moment. But he doesn't understand why Kate can't remember that night in 1893 Chicago, when she turned back to face the killer chasing them through the smoky corridors of the World's Fair Hotel. Kate placed the CHRONOS key around his neck and made his eight-year-old self promise to wear it always, and that's a promise Kiernan has never broken.

But, sadly, they don't even make it to lunchtime. The action races from 17th century London to Ancient Egypt and from Pompeii to 14th century Southwark as they're pursued up and down the timeline.

    With more than 10 million copies in print worldwide, New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series is a global phenomenon. Lord John and the Private Matter, starring one of the most popular Outlander characters, captures all the adventure and magic of the series while delivering a fresh tale that is utterly captivating.

    On an autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman knocks at the door of a grand house in the wealthiest quarter of Amsterdam. She has come from the country to begin a new life as the wife of the illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt, but instead she is met by his sharp-tongued sister, Marin. Only later does Johannes appear and present her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. It is to be furnished by an elusive miniaturist, whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in unexpected ways . . .

    From Charlaine Harris, the best-selling author who created Sookie Stackhouse and her world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, comes a darker locale - populated by more strangers than friends. But then, that's how the locals prefer it. Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It' s a pretty standard dried-up western town.

    This was a interesting book it could of went far except it didn't. The characters we normal than they weren't. It's almost like the author needed more excitement so she threw in a cast of characters that didn't have any supernatural "issues" then they did. It was confusing and spotty. It didn't flow well.

    We live across the thousand dunes with grit in our teeth and sand in our homes. No one will come for us. No one will save us. This is our life, diving for remnants of the old world so that we may build what the wind destroys. No one is looking down on us. Those constellations in the night sky? Those are the backs of gods we see.

    This was lack luster at best. I couldn't grasp any interest in the characters at all. They seemed boring and flat. The story dragged two chapters later and she was STILL describing the same scene the same concept... the same. It could of been a four hour book. The narrative was blasé and I kept falling asleep. Then I'd have to go back just to see what I had missed except it was nothing and i wasted my time. This is the third Hugh Howey book I've tried and the third one I haven't thought wow what a book! Next time i'll skip mr Hugh Howey.

    Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her. While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name.

    First off I loved this book. I found myself staying awake at night to listen to it. Finding a moment here and there to steal away and listen. It was so worth the credit. The title confused me I thought that this book was going to be about her captors having the mean streak boy was I wrong! Just when I thought I had figured it all out . Nope. It took twists I wasn't expecting and the ending was perfect and wrapped the novel up perfectly. I highly recommend it.
