  • Looking for Alaska

    Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words - and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the "Great Perhaps." Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young. Clever, funny, screwed-up, and dead sexy, Alaska will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.

    Looking for Alaska brilliantly chronicles the indelible impact one life can have on another.

    "Good, but not fantastic."
    Overall

    This book offers what all the other reviewers said, but I can't say I would use words like "fantastic," "amazing," and "terrific." It definitely made for an interesting read(or listen) but the end was anticlimactic.. So anticlimactic that I did rate this book with four stars, but thought of the ending and brought it down to three.. So, buy if you are an avid Green fan, but not if you have just have, by chance, found this book. Maybe I'm not being fair.. This book made me laugh, be sad, be happy, and maybe I snorted. (maybe). The narration was FANTASTIC, and he does deserve that word. The characters were easy to relate to and made you like them, but that is about all the positives I can think on the top of my head.

    When mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson attempts to return a powerful Fae book she'd previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down. It seems the book contains secret knowledge - and the Fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands.

    Meghan says: "Highly recommend"
    "Great Book"
    Overall

    Huge fan of Mercy, and this book didn't disappoint. I'll def. be reading the next book. (or listening.)

    Alisa has spent the past five thousand years as a vampire, living alone and fighting for survival. In her loneliness, Alisa cannot resist bringing Teria, a descendant of her human family, into her life. But Alisa is surrounded by death and destruction, and just by knowing Alisa, Teri's life is at risk. Alisa's guilt grows when she becomes involved in a dangerous conspiracy. A top-secret group knows Alisa's secret and will stop at nothing to use her powers for their cause.

    J. Ko says: "AMAZING!!!"
    "Really didn't shine a light to No.1 and No.2"
    Overall

    This was a good book, and a good listen. A lot of suspense, which I have countered in a lot of Pike books. Sita is a really strong characters and I really like her. So, I would suggest listening to this book only if you loved no.1 and no.2 because you won't really follow along if you haven't. I gave this book three stars because I felt like it wasn't wrote up to par to no.1 and no.2.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "One of the best, original, YA book I've read."
    Overall

    I've listened to many audiobooks, but this one really stood out among the crowd! Really! It was full of action, drama, suspense, surprise, and even some romance mixed up in all that. Kinda reminded me of a side salad( haha. no? No one laughed.. okay..well..) yeah, anyways, it was a really good book. Try it, you won't feel bad about it!

    One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical.

    FanB14 says: "Another John Green Hit"
    "One of the best. (and im a harsh critic)"
    Overall

    I found myself swaying to the beat of this book, and trust me, it had one. I loved it from the start! (well, okay.. from about chapter three.) The characters are great! Really, they are. Maybe great isn't a good word for them.. words like AMAZING, PHENOMENAL, and BRILLIANT come to mind.. But they just sound stupid when I use them in a sentence. On a serious note, this book was worth your credit and money. It was everything I expected from two great authors! If you want more, like I did... Try Looking for Alaska by John Greene and Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan. Great book/audiobooks.. OH, and P.S. the reading on this was just great! It really made the book. :)

    Official Book Club Selection is Kathy Griffin unplugged, uncensored, and unafraid to dish about what really happens on the road, away from the cameras, and at the star party after the show. (It's also her big chance to score that coveted book club endorsement she's always wanted. Are you there, Oprah? It's me, Kathy.)

    SHEILA says: "Kathy Griffin"
    "Reminder: Not stand up, a Memoir."
    Overall

    Although I wouldn't really call this book "the most hilarious thing ever," I would say that it was witty, perhaps nostalgic, somewhat sad, and very comical. Kathy is a very funny person, and this transcends to her writing. BUT PLEASE REMEMBER, if you just want a cheap laugh, this is not it. It's a personal MEMOIR, and not everything can be funny. Some is sad, some nostalgic, and some really funny. If you are looking for a cheap laugh and not the full ride, don't buy it. If you LOVE/LIKE K.G, then please buy it. You will love it! I did.

  • Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat, and Freaks

    As one of America's hottest female comedians, Lisa Lampanelli has earned critical acclaim across the country for her no-holds-barred style and ability to make people laugh at their own stereotypes and differences. Now, from the gutter-mouth comedienne who "talks like a truck driver but resembles a '50s housewife" (New York Times) comes her over-the-top, laugh-out-loud memoir, Chocolate, Please.

    Sarah says: "pretty much awesome"
    "[Though not funny, insightful into her life.]"
    Overall

    Well, I believe that this book wasn't wrote to make the audience laugh.. but more to make the audience have a deeper insight into Lisa Lamp's life. She talks a lot about how crazy she is which I didn't find too funny. Her wit is intertwined with her story, but something that would make one smile instead of *LAUGH OUT LOUD.* Though I believe that this isn't a GREAT book, I believe it is a GOOD book. So, basically, buy it if you just REALLY love Lamp and want to know a little about her... But DONT buy it if you just want to "bust out laughing." If you want to "bust out laughing," I suggest Dear Vodka, It's Me Chelsea by Chelsea Handler... It's pretty funny.
