    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I didn't care for the storyline. I think it would have been or could have been more interesting but it just fell short for me. The description of the book lead me to believe it was going to be a certain story, and that is not what I got.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was disappointed. I didn't really get into the story until about 70% of the way through, when the "climax" seemed to be at full swing, and then it just kind of ended and left me feeling unsatisfied.


    Have you listened to any of Imogen Church’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I don't know...I think for the big screen it could make a decent movie.

    Where does Past Midnight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am a big fan of Tara Sands as a narrator. So that alone ranks this book higher than probably it would be if I read it on my own.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Past Midnight?

    I did like the ending


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene in the pizza shop with Avery and Jared.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I am not sure. But my mom did. My mom would get so excited when we were driving in town she actually floored it through a red light haha.

    In the midst of the freezing Arctic winter, seventeen-year-old Lumikki Andersson walks into her school’s dark room and finds a stash of wet, crimson-colored money. Thousands of Euros left to dry-splattered with someone’s blood. Lumikki lives alone in a studio apartment far from her parents and the past she left behind. She transferred into a prestigious art school, and she’s singularly focused on studying and graduating. Lumikki ignores the cliques, the gossip, and the parties held by the school’s most popular and beautiful boys and girls.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would change the reason why Lumikki is the way she is. It is hard to make the connection of what happened in her past to how she is acting in the situation at hand. There is no way that would happen. I know it is a book, but connections should still be logical.


    Has As Red as Blood turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I read a lot of YA, I read a lot of thriller also. This book holds promise but fails to deliever


    Which character – as performed by Amy McFadden – was your favorite?

    I didn't have a favorite character. The characters weren't relatable.


    Do you think As Red as Blood needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Apparently this is the first of a trilogy, however, this book ended and I am not sure how two more books can follow.


    Any additional comments?

    Amy McFadden is a good narrator. This just wasn't a good story.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Saving Raphael Santiago to be better than the print version?

    I would consider this to be better than the print. I love Michael Trevino and was super excited to see he was narrating this book!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Magnus is hands down my favorite character in the entire series of The Mortal Instruments, The Bane Chronicles and The Infernal Devices. I love his attitude and personality. He is so full of love, even if he doesn't always show it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really like when Raphael was living with Magnus. I loved how Raphael always poked and prodded at Magnus.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to it in one sitting. It isn't very long, so it isn't very hard

    Magnus thought he would never return to London, but he is lured by a handsome offer from Tatiana Blackthorn, whose plans - involving her beautiful young ward - are far more sinister than Magnus even suspects. In London at the turn of the century, Magnus finds old friends, and meets a very surprising young man... the sixteen-year-old James Herondale.

    What would have made The Midnight Heir better?

    I really loved the aspect of Will, Tessa and Jem being in this novella, but I feel like a little more of them would have been better. The whole memory/story itself just fell flat. There wasn't a whole of meat to it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan again?

    Yes


    What does David Oyelowo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was a good Bane, believable compared to some of the others


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Midnight Heir?

    The scene when Jem, Tessa and Will were all oggling all over each other..was a little creepy and a bit much. With not a whole lot of purpose but to further why their son felt left out.

    From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new collection of essays taking his listeners on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences.

    I didn't have a favorite character. I enjoyed everyone, especially the essays about his dad.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the dog days essay, but I didn't really have a favorite.

But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive".

    Where does My Life as a White Trash Zombie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is definitely one of the BEST audiobooks I have ever listened to.


    What other book might you compare My Life as a White Trash Zombie to and why?

    There isn't one you can really compare it with. It is so different and so refreshing. It is not your normal zombie book at all.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene with Angel. Angel is an awesome character, very snarky. I really enjoyed the funny joke : What did the zombie say to the whore?....Keep the tip"


    If you could take any character from My Life as a White Trash Zombie out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Angel for sure. She is fun, has a good sense of humor and makes light of her situation.

But what was supposed to be a promising escape soon turns into a horrific nightmare. Within hours of arrival, the guests sit down for an extravagant dinner. When they pull their party poppers as instructed, a loud chorus of bangs resounds, followed by earsplitting screams as the guest seated at the head of the table bursts into flames and slumps to the floor.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES! I was sucked into this story. I told everyone I know who watches the show to GET THIS BOOK!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Free: Whodunnit??

    Every moment was memorable. From the very beginning. There were multiple "gasping" "OMG" moments with each murder.


    Have you listened to any of Gildart Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first performance of his. Though i watch the show and he is great on that. He was absolutely amazing for Giles. On TV and in the book. He really brought it to life and brought the thrill to the tale.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! Sadly I couldn't.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. It is different than most other books out there right now in the YA world. I would suggest it to people who are intrigued by books with some kind of monster in them, but this does not include a romantic twist (sorry if that is what you are looking for).


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

    It was a little slow with most of the "climax" of the story being at the end. I like stories that have a slow build, followed by the climax, and then let it end...this ending seemed to drag on a while...a lot longer than was really necessary.


    What about Steven Boyer’s performance did you like?

    He can really make a creepy character even creepier!


    Was The Monstrumologist worth the listening time?

    Hit and miss. Sometimes I didn't want to listen to it, but some parts I couldn't stop listening to.
