    What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over?Alice Love is twenty-nine years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! she HATES the gym!) and discovers that she's actually thirty-nine, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce.

    Any additional comments?

    I loved What Alice Forgot. This was really a story about someone finding herself again, but played out in a completely unique way. I have been recommending this book to everyone. Get it - you won't be disappointed!

    Summer 1924: On the eve of a glittering Society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again....Winter 1999: Grace Bradley, 98, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide. Ghosts awaken, and memories, long consigned to the dark reaches of Grace's mind, begin to sneak back through the cracks.

    What other book might you compare The House at Riverton to and why?

    This book is almost a modern day Shakespeare, in that it is a tragic love story. So many times in the book, I wanted to stop the characters and shake them and make them see reason. But it was beautifully written and I loved being carried away on the words.


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    Caroline Lee did a great job of capturing the different nuances between characters. You always knew who was speaking and what their viewpoint was. I thought her performance of young Grace and old Grace was particularly well done.

    After the first wave, only darkness remains. After the second, only the lucky escape. And after the third, only the unlucky survive. After the fourth wave, only one rule applies: Trust no one. Now, it's the dawn of the fifth wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother - or even saving herself.

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

    I had heard great things about this book, so I was excited to start it. But right away I was struck by the characters being very one dimensional, the plot pacing being rushed, and the coincidental conveniences stacking up. I really hate that.

    If you like sci-fi or dystopia and don't care if you plot really makes sense, then maybe this is the book for you.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rick Yancey again?

    No.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    What did you love best about Gone Girl?

    It actually really took my be surprise. I love when a story does that and takes you to an unexpected place instead of just following a formula.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. I kept wondering how the next part was going to play out. I didn't see the middle or the end coming!
