    Sixteen years after a deadly virus wiped out most of Earth’s population, the world is a perilous place. Eighteen-year-old Eve has never been beyond the heavily guarded perimeter of her school, where she and two hundred other orphaned girls have been promised a future as the teachers and artists of the New America. But the night before graduation, Eve learns the shocking truth about her school’s real purpose - and the horrifying fate that awaits her. Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive.

    I really enjoyed this book - it was a good spin on the 'earth disaster' stories.
    I bought this book during the 1st in the series sales and gave it a listen and couldn't get into it. I tried a couple weeks later and loved it. (I bought several other books in that sale and couldn't get into those either!)
    The thing that appealed to me the most when considering buying the book was Tavia Gilbert - I am a big fan of her narration.
    I would highly recommend this book and I'm thinking it would be a good one for my teenage daughter to listen to.

    One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him. But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation - and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out - Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume - her sweet, filthy fling - to France for the summer and just…play.

    This was my first book by Christina Lauren (its actually written by 2 authors named Christina and Lauren which I found interesting!) and I loved it! I will definitely be downloading the Beautiful Bastard series asap. If it's as good as this one, I will be a happy reader.
    I found this story easy to listen to. It had sweet romantic moments, heartfelt emotional moments and of course the hot and heavy moments!
    I believe this may be the beginning of a new series and I really look forward to reading the next one.
    I would totally recommend it and would give it a 4.5!
    Happy reading!!!

    Zombies stalk the night. Forget blood and brains. These monsters hunger for human souls. Sadly, they've got mine. Alice Bell has lost so much. Family. Friends. A home. She thought she had nothing else to give. She was wrong. After a new zombie attack, strange things begin to happen to her. Mirrors come to life, and the whispers of the dead assault her ears. But the worst?

    I just finished this book earlier this evening.
    I was a little sad knowing it was coming to an end.
    My biggest complaint and I really hate to say this, was the narration. Not the actual narrator but it sounds like she had a cold and her nose was blocked and this was throughout the whole book?! I found this made it difficult for me to enjoy the story as much as I could have otherwise.

    Otherwise the story itself was great. I would definitely recommend it!!

    She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever. Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone. Her father was right. The monsters are real.

    Story

    I found Alice in Zombieland a little hard to get into. I love a good series - I really enjoying the character development over a few or more books), so for me the first book is new and not so familiar and this book also had a narrator I hadn't listened to before.
    The first 1.5 hours I had to listen to at 2x speed. In saying that, by the end of the book I was hooked and the book ended too quickly. I immediately downloaded the next in the series.
    If I could give this book 4.5 stars I would - I've marked it down 1/2 star just because the beginning didn't grab me.
    Definitely well worth a credit and I would highly recommend it.

    I'm really enjoying this series - as I said in the title I'm already downloading the next book (Dying Echo) and hopefully it won't be the last.
    I love Tavia Gilbert's narration and that's originally how I found this series, I like searching for books not only by my favourite authors but my favourite narrators. Tavia does another great job with the Grim Reaper series.
    In this book Casey continues her travels and lands herself amidst another drama.
    I've really come to love the relationship Casey has with Death and the conversations between them. I'd definitely recommend this book to fiction lovers.

    Looking for something else to read? Here are some of my other favourites:
    (I also want to add that for me a good audio book is not just about the writing - the narration is crucial - so if I've listed something below it's because the combination is a winner!! I seem to have a preference for female narration... not sure why?)

    If you like Paranormal fiction (witches/vampires/werewolves etc)
    Anything by Jeaniene Frost - top of the list is the Night Huntress series. (Narrated by Tavia Gilbert)
    Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones (narrated by Lorelei King)

    Divergent series by Veronica Roth - awesome!!! (narrated by Emma Galvin)
    Eve Series by Anna Carey (narrated by Tavia Gilbert)
    Legend Series by Marie Lu (narrated by Stephen Kaplan)
    The Host by Stephanie Meyer (narrated by Kate Reading)

    Zombies?

    I enjoyed this book. I pretty much love anything that Amanda Ronconi narrates but I especially love supernatural fiction, so how could you go wrong with this one.
    I like to listen while driving to and from work and this book was easy to listen to over a week. It's a fun story with great personalities, great dialogue and a good effort in the 2nd in this series - I look forward to listening to more :)

    I read someone else's review earlier tonight who listed all their favourite authors at the end of her reviews as that's how she likes to find new books to read (listen lol) - by others recommendations. What a great idea right?
    So if you're looking for recommendations, here's what I would recommend...

    Anything by Jeaniene Frost - top of the list is the Night Huntress series.
    Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones
    Mercy Thompson Series by Patricia Briggs
    Naked Werewolf series, Jane Jameson series, Half Moon Hollow series - basically anything by Molly Harper!
    Sookie Stackhouse - Charlaine Harris
    Divergent series by Veronica Roth - awesome!!!
    Garnet Lacey series by Tate Hallaway
    White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland
    The Grim Reaper Series by Judy Clemens
    Anything by Richelle Mead but I really enjoyed the Dark Swan series, Succubus series and then vampire academy.

    Recovering witch Garnet Lacey owns Wisconsin's premier occult bookstore. And a fringe benefit of the job is getting customers like Sebastian Von Traum - piercing brown eyes, a sexy accent, and a killer body. The only thing missing is an aura. Which means he's dead. And that means trouble - something Garnet's a sucker for....

    Just finished this 1st book and really enjoyed it. I wouldn't rate it as amazing but definitely above average!
    Great narration from Amanda Ronconi as per usual. I enjoyed her accents in this one.
    There were a few technical glitches in part 1 which was a little frustrating and I had read other complaints of this in other reviews. It still didn't ruin it for me.
    I'm currently downloading the next two books as I think this should be a great series.

    I have just finished this book and am downloading the next 'love unrehearsed'.

    My favourite part about this book was the characters. I enjoyed the character development and at times was laughing along with the conversations between friends. I enjoyed the storyline and am looking forward to finding out more about what happens in the next book.

    What i didn't like was the 'paparazzi is bad' agenda of the novel. I felt there could have been a little less of this.
    At times I also felt that the reader (listener) wasn't given enough credit and the story was really spelt out so the point the author was trying to make was really obvious. I think the book could have been a little shorter if this wasn't case.
    I have read other comments that the book was really long but I didn't mind the length. I like to read a series of books, so it wasn't an issue for me at all.
    But they are my only two criticisms and I'm buying the next book as I write - so definitely think it's worth a listen.

    In the beginning I found the switching from different periods in time confusing but it began to make sense and really helped the story in the end.
    Overall I would recommend this book to anyone :)
