    It's been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents' divorce - or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live.A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac.

    "Great book, pretty good narrator"
    Overall

    This is turning out to be a great book. I haven't finished it yet but I had to write a review because of the narrator. The narrator is great but when she does dialogue sometimes she makes these long pauses when she switches characters. I keep thinking the audio is cutting out. It is kind of annoying but otherwise the narrator is really good and the book is fun to listen to.

    Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages - not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color.

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

    I would definitely recommend this audiobook. The story was enthralling, the MC has an awesome voice, the narration was the best I have heard.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Daughter of Smoke and Bone?

    The beginning of the book totally sucked me in.


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

    I didn't want to stop listening!


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to a lot of audiobooks, and believe it or not, this is the best I have come across in YA fiction.

    Anna Strong's primitive vampire instincts are getting harder to control. And a new enemy wants to take advantage of that fact, for Anna has been chosen to shape the destiny of all vampires-and all humans.

    Overall

    I have listed to all of the books in the series so far and this will be the last. I just can't stand the main character, Anna. I just couldn't take who she killed in this book. She is too savage and immoral for my taste and I stopped listening to the book toward the end and didn't get around to finishing it for a while. I can't take Anna anymore so I am giving up on this series. Other than Anna this book was the best one in the series and the narration was good.

    Follow the adventures of Princess Anidori Kiladra of Kildenree as she struggles to regain not merely her crown, but her very name. Sweeping in its vision and enlivened by a huge cast of vivid characters, The Goose Girl has earned both rave reviews and an intensely loyal fan following.

    Miri lives on a mountain where, for generations, her ancestors have quarried stone and lived a simple life. Then word comes that the king's priests have divined her small village as the home of the future princess. In a year's time, the prince himself will come and choose his bride from among the girls of the village. The king's ministers set up an academy on the mountain, and every teenage girl must attend and learn how to become a princess.

    Overall

    I am 24 years old and love young adult books but I didn't really enjoy this book. There was nothing wrong with it. I think if I was younger (maybe 13) I would have LOVED it.

    Cassandra Palmer may be the all-powerful Pythia now, but that doesn't mean people have stopped trying to kill her. Most of the supernatural power players don't want independent-minded Cassie as chief clairvoyant - and they'll stop at nothing to see her six feet under.

    "So good"
    Overall

    I loved this book. I can't wait for the next book to come out. The narrator is one of the best I have heard and the book is exciting. This series is definitely worth checking out.

    Cassandra Palmer can see the future and communicate with spirits - talents that make her attractive to the dead and the undead alike. The ghosts of the dead aren't usually dangerous; they just like to talk...a lot. The undead are another matter. Like any sensible girl, Cassie tries to avoid vampires, but when the bloodsucking mafioso she escaped three years ago finds Cassie again with vengeance on his mind, she's forced to turn to the vampire Senate for protection.

    donna says: "decent story but does have a few flaws.."
    "Great series"
    Overall

    This is the first in the series and it is AWESOME! I happened to really like the narrator, unlike some of the other reviews that I read. I really liked some of the voices done like Pritkins. I bought the entire series and really liked everyone I listened to. If you liked this book, just wait, the series keeps getting better. I can't wait for the next one to be released!
