    "A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright – a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster. You think I’m talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It’s no deformity, no disease. And I’ll stay this way forever – ruined – unless I can break the spell...."

    What did you love best about Beastly?

    The author did a good job of taking you into this boy's life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beastly?

    The pinnacle moment at the end of the story--can't give it away!


    What about Chris Patton’s performance did you like?

    He became "the Beast". He sunk into the character.


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

    No, no extreme reaction. It was fine, but nothing very special.

    Today should be one of the worst days of 17-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. She's stuck at JFK, late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon to be step-mother that Hadley's never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport's cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he's British, and he's in seat 18C. Hadley's in 18A.

    I would try another book from this author.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jennifer E. Smith? Why or why not?

    Yes. It was a cute story.


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

    Not that I know of.


    Do you think The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not really. I think the story was told fine in one novel.

    Lizzy Tucker’s once normal life as a pastry chef in Salem, Massachusetts, turns upside down as she battles both sinister forces and an inconvenient attraction to her unnaturally talented but off-limits partner, Diesel. When Harvard University English professor and dyed-in-the-wool romantic Gilbert Reedy is mysteriously murdered and thrown off his fourth-floor balcony, Lizzy and Diesel take up his 20-year quest for the Luxuria Stone, an ancient relic believed by some to be infused with the power of lust.

    If you could sum up Wicked Business in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, mystery, feel-good


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wicked Business?

    The spells that hit the "bad guys" were all funny!


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

    She did a great job as Lizzy. Very dry and funny, just like the character.


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

    I would have if I had the time!


    Any additional comments?

    Janet Evanovich is always funny, original and a joy to read! Love her!

    Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

    Would you consider the audio edition of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) to be better than the print version?

    I prefer the audio version of memoirs. Mindy Kaling did not disappoint! Great to hear her story in her own words.
