I can't stop. Audiobooks are the diversion and comfort when I am alone, the excitement I don't have the time for, and scratch for that itch

    Take one bored princess. Make her the seventh daughter in a very proper royal family. Have her run away. Add one powerful, fascinating, dangerous dragon. Princess Cimerone has never met anyone (or anything) like the dragon Kazul. But then, she's never met a witch, a jinn, a death-dealing talking bird or a stone prince either. Princess Cimerone ran away to find some excitement. She's found plenty.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think this book would be WONDERFUL for young girls. I thought it was a book that could also be enjoyed by adults, which I think it might be.

    Really it was the reading for the dragons' voices that made me stop listening. I think reading the book with a younger person might be delightful.

    I thought it was charming and delightful. I cared about the characters, and there was adventure to keep my interest.
    So some of the plot was predictable- that didn't really keep me from guessing at the other parts and thoroughly enjoying the tale. I would listen to it again!

    Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack...and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she'd learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member - and as his mate.

    I wasn't expecting to love the book. I have read and enjoyed all the Mercy Thompson series so far, and for some reason thought that this was the older, and lesser series. Wrong.
    To me, this book is so much richer than the MT series. I LOVED the heroine! She had depth, was relatable, and admirable. Each character was well developed and the story kept moving, all the while bringing me farther into the world of the werewolves and the pack.
    I also expected the narrator to be a woman, and was surprised that I liked this man better than I would have a woman reading it. The narration skips between the characters, and he has a great voice, and reads well for all of them.

    Life as a ship's boy aboard HMS Dolphin is a dream come true for Jacky Faber. Gone are the days of scavenging for food and fighting for survival on the streets of 18th-century London. Instead, Jacky is becoming a skilled and respected sailor as the crew pursues pirates on the high seas. There's only one problem: Jacky is a girl. And she will have to use every bit of her spirit, wit, and courage to keep the crew from discovering her secret.

    How have a missed this book before??? I can I not love a book about a sassy girl who cannot keep herself from getting into trouble/adventures? No one can help loving Jackie, despite or because of her most relatable flaws. This book is a perfect marriage of character development, charm, whit, a bit of romance, and adventure.

    It is a book that I could read over and over again, because I feel that I am right there experiencing the adventure. I rarely give a 5, and it is without a doubt worth five stars.

    The book not only is a story about a girl coming of age and battling pirates, it is bloody hilarious.

    Jacky Faber, Bloody Jack, is back, and this time, she's facing a situation far worse than a ship full of murderous pirates. Curse of the Blue Tattoo, L. A. Meyer's sequel to the enormous popular Bloody Jack, is just as bawdy and entertaining as the original.

    I LOVE the narrator, and I love the series. Tis true that landlocked Jackie is less stimulating than pirate fighting Jackie, but there still were great scenes that made me want to be a better person and left me laughing out loud and yelling at the characters. Not quite as good as the first, but really the series is so good, that any book in it is far superior to any other book I have read in the last year.

  • Jurassic Park

    From the ever-inventive, ingenious mind of Michael Crichton comes the terrifying tale of a "theme" park that even Disney never dreamed of! A shroud of secrecy covers a privately-owned island off the coast of the Dominican Republic where an American bioengineering firm is quietly building a resort theme park. Even the expert consultants on the project don't know exactly what it is. And local doctors are mystified when an injured park worker arrives at the hospital with gashes on his body as if an animal of monstrous proportions has mauled him.

    What did you like best about Jurassic Park? What did you like least?

    I did not care for the narrators, it sounded unprofessionally done. I of course liked the story, but it was just too short.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    Where does The Graveyard Book rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is probably #3 of all the books I have read, only behind the Hunger Games. I loved the story, it was a wonderful life to share with the protagonist.

    I loved the narrator. He made this book better than I ever would have imagined if reading it alone. He gave life


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Mistress Owens. She isn't spoken of much after the beginning, but she was such a strong character.


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

    No, but I would like to.


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

    It made me cry at the end....but I was still happy.
