    When the zombie apocalypse strikes without warning one dog will hold the fate of her pack in her paws. This is the story of Riley, an American bulldog. Follow along as she tries to keep her pack safe from a zombie apocalypse. Traveling with her are Ben-Ben the high-strung Yorkie; her favorite two-legger, Jessie; Jessie's younger brother, Zachary; and Riley's archenemy, Patches the cat. They are a rag-tag group of survivors, who, when pushed to the limit, realize that they are all each other has.

    If you could sum up The Book of Riley in three words, what would they be?

    A smart "dogs eye view" of the zombie apocalypse.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Riley of course, who wouldn't like her!


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    He is the narrator of the Zombie apocalypse in my mind forever now.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but I have read Mark Tufo's other books, so I'm a bit desensitized lol.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish it were longer...

    It's been six months since fast-food-addicted Reginald Baskin was turned into a vampire too fat to live peacefully amongst the glamorous undead - six months in which Reginald and his 2,000-year-old maker Maurice have learned that power doesn't equal popularity. Sure, Maurice is now calling the shots, but the Council is up to new and dirty tricks, threatening to once again upset the balance...

    Where does Tastes like Chicken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love vampires, zombies, werewolves, etc. so its in the top 3 categories I guess.


    What other book might you compare Tastes like Chicken to and why?

    Mark Tufo's "Zombie Fallout" series, they both jive with my kinda humor.


    Have you listened to any of Matt Josdal, VOplanet Studios’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    If you could take any character from Tastes like Chicken out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Reginald Baskin, but he would have to pay I think, provided I wasn't on the menu!


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the book, wish it was longer!

    Cent can teleport. So can her parents, but they are the only people in the world who can. This is not as great as you might think it would be - sure, you can go shopping in Japan and then have tea in London, but it's hard to keep a secret like that. And there are people, dangerous people, who work for governments and have guns, who want to make you do just this one thing for them. And when you're a teenage girl things get even more complicated. High school. Boys. Global climate change, refugees, and genocide. Orbital mechanics.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Exo to be better than the print version?

    Dunno.


    What other book might you compare Exo to and why?

    The Lost Gate by Orson Scott Card. Kid in Lost Gate can make gates to other places, kinda the same, neat concepts.


    What about Emily Rankin’s performance did you like?

    Nice clear voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yeah, Grams crying in space from looking at the earth was nice.


    Any additional comments?

    Space, teleportation, bad guys, how much more incentive to read this do you need really?

    Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for 62 years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten subbasement, 16-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now her parents and her first love are long dead, and Rose -  hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire - is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat. Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes....

    Where does A Long, Long Sleep rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    With the twilight books but better than those


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The stasis tubes, the main character.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    Was ok no problems.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No but I was a little put off by the main character being incredibly stupid even for a abused 16 year old girl, just seemed ridiculous, people are trying to kill her and shes worried about her damn love life c'mon .....


    Any additional comments?

    Its a chick flick but it was ok I guess

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.
