    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    When I saw this book on Audible, I new I had to get it. This book is an exceptionally well written memoir of a woman who is trying to find herself, and realizes that all she needs to be happy is to find that 1 place that we've all as human beings want to find. I couldn't put this book down. Thank you Liz for the wonderful memoir. I wanna know what happens next :)

    Well, where can I start? This series took up half the year and apart of last year. I absolutely love this series and can't wait to see it adapted. Jaimie and Clair are truly epic and each book got better and better. So thank you Dianna for your hard work :) Did I mention I love Outlander?

    91 year-old Ira Levinson is kept concious after a car wreck by visions of his late wife, Ruth, who recounts stories of their lifetime together. A few miles away, at a local rodeo, Sophia Danko, a senior at Wake Forest, meets a young cowboy named Luke. Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

    There is not enough words for me to describe this book. Once again, Nickolas Sparks has done it again. This book is about 3 live coming together in 1 single moment. I couldn't put this book down from start to finish. How can 1 person love another so much? Read the book and you'll find out and be hooked just like I was. I hope they don't make this 1 into a movie :)

    In Eyes of Prey, Bekker, an insane pathologist who experiments with his patients’ pain thresholds, is finally brought down by an unrelenting Lucas Davenport, who brutally maims the doctor’s beautiful face but leaves him alive. “You should have killed me,” were Bekker’s parting and prophetic words.

    In this sequel to Eyes of Prey, Bekker endures the indignities and horrors of imprisonment, taking comfort in the fact that it is only a matter of time before he will make Lucas Davenport pay.

    Lucus Davanport is someone you seriously don't want to mess with. I couldn't seem to put the book down. The serial killer is absolutely brilliant. Lucus as always is a star. Great read from start to finish. can't wait to read the next book :)

    The “Prey” novels by Pulitzer prize-winning journalist John Sandford consistently make the best-seller lists, but they are not for the faint of heart. Featuring Minneapolis Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, these thrillers are raw, graphic, and impossible to put down. In Eyes of Prey, a depressed and unfocused Davenport takes on a macabre case, tracking down a serial killer who maims the eyes of his victims after he has murdered them.

    I personally love books that just grab you from the 1st moment you pick them up, but unfortunately this book didn't do that to me. It was around the last 3 chapters that I got hooked and couldn't wait to see what happens. I'm going to continue to read this series because I don't like to leave a series unfinished if I can help it, but hopefully the rest of the series is epic :)

    Dangerous sex, family secrets, irresistible power, mega money, and two murders equal one reckless week in New York. Lovers and Players takes you on a high-powered trip from Park Avenue to Brooklyn. Jackie Collins is back in her most deliciously scandalous novel yet. And she's giving her readers a revealing look into the private realms of her fabulously rich and sexy cast of characters.

    In the fall of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.

    Hello Readers,
    This book was 1 that I couldn't put down. I kept wanting to know more about all the chericters that were in the book. I love the authors history of the 3 countries as well. I was a little dissapointed where the ending was concerned, but over all, it was a wonderful book.

    On the 78th floor of the World Trade Center’s north tower, no alarms sounded, and no one knew what had just happened at 8:46 a.m. that morning, September 11, 2001. Blind since birth, Michael couldn’t see a thing, but he could hear the sounds of shattering glass, falling debris, and terrified people flooding around him and his guide dog, Roselle. However, Roselle sat calmly beside him. In that moment, Michael chose to trust Roselle’s judgment and not to panic. They were a team....

    Hello!
    I was just browsing thru Audible, when I discovered another person's review. Naturally the title caught my attention because it had a blind man, and I'n hoping to get a guide dog 1 day. I thought that the book was going to be about another blind man trying to get out of something. Boy! Was I wrong. His faith is what touched and still touches me. If he can do all the things in the book, then I can do anything!
    Michael, it was and still worth it. Forward!
