    City of Fallen Angels take up where City of Glass left off. With Valentine out of the way, Clary thought she and Jace could finally be together--but when someone starts murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine's Circle and leaving their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to destroy the new peace between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, she realizes the past can never be left entirely behind.

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

    Ok I am confused between the British accent and the Boston Accent???? Can you not decide....beside NEITHER make me think of Simon or Jace!! And the female voice....has Clarey fallen back to toodler age??? Seriously has to be the worst narration I have ever had in a book! If it wasn't for the story I would return it immediately! I HOPE you guys listen and use different ones for the rest or this will end the series for me!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    They are the worst! Cannot decide which accent they want to use, did not at all capture the characters, and neither had any idea how to make the story come alive, if this is who you used for the rest of the series then sadly this will be the end for me!

    Anthony Award-winning author Charlaine Harris has earned a devoted fan base with her USA Today and New York Times best-selling Sookie Stackhouse mystery series. All Together Dead features more dark but frequently hilarious adventures of buxom, blonde, beautiful, and telepathic cocktail waitress Sookie, who prefers the company of vampires to that of the living.

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Would you listen to Fifty Shades of Grey again? Why?

    This is a book you THINK is going to take you to a very dark place.....but it takes to to a place some with so MUCH MORE! I loved the innocent Ana, and the dark mysterious Christian! It gets the blood pumping and was surprised to see so many bad reviews, but then noticed many were men, so not surprised. This is not a get in there and do the business book, it has a story line and I think most men do not have the patience for anything but "the good stuff". Plus you need to have a mind that likes to think of possibilities....this really is more for woman than men. Although if a guy were to ACTUALLY PAY ATTENTION TO THE STORY, they might learn a thing or two of what their woman might like. Remembering though that most woman could not be like Ana and almost all men could not have Christians stamina lol I think many woman would love the occasional spanking ;) to get all caveman on them here and there, but this book also gives an sweet twist to ordinary vanilla. I loved it, and enjoyed all 3! So did the hubby, but more for the effect it had on me than because he read it (he too did not have the patience and kept asking when do we get to the good stuff lol)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    CHRISTIAN!!
