    I started this book expecting one thing. I had in my mind how it was going to read and the general direction that the book was going to go. I was so far off that it made the book all the more worth reading! I kept me so interested that every free minute I had I kept hitting the play button to listen for just a few minutes.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    This was a book that was recommended to me by a friend. I read the description, I was not at that interested at the time. I added it to my favorites any way. I kept hearing how great this book was so finally I used a credit to get the book knowing in the back of the mind if it ends of being unbearable I can always return it. Well, in the end I spent an entire Sunday listening to this book. I had to stop it a few times to take care of a few things but if it would not have been for these interruptions I would have completed it all in "one sitting."

    The powerful debut novel from New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult, Songs of the Humpback Whale is a moving story of love and family told through the eyes of five people: Jane Jones, her daughter Rebecca, and three very different men in their lives. After a watershed moment in their marriage, Jane leaves Oliver, her renowned marine biologist husband, and begins a journey across the country with Rebecca in search of understanding about her troubled past.

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    That would have been better had I read it from the last chapter to the first chapter! I know it was written so that it was looking backward through a time glass persay but it made it hard to follow, especially with so many characters.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The narrator's in this book were great. The book itself took away from their performance because it was hard to keep up with who was who.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was disappointed with this book. I have read mostly her newer books and this book did not impress me like her other books.

  • Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

    Heralded as an instant classic of fantasy literature, Maguire has written a wonderfully imaginative retelling of The Wizard of Oz told from the Wicked Witch's point of view. More than just a fairy tale for adults, Wicked is a meditation on the nature of good and evil.

    I really wanted to love this book. I am a HUGE fan of the Wizard of Oz and I guess I expected this book to be something it was not. I was unable to finish listening to this book; it was too drawn out. It reminded me of something written around the time in which authors were paid for every word they wrote not necessarily for the quality of what they wrote. I really tried to like it and listened for much longer then I wanted hoping something would spark my attention or that it would pick up that was never the case.
