    Arianna Grace is about to turn 17, and her life has been very complicated lately. She is the leader of four clans of night humans: dearg-dul, baku, tengu, and lycan. While the four clans seem to get along better with one another, there is internal conflict on both sides of her family, not to mention the three boys vying for her attention. Devin is set on keeping her safe above all else. Turner's goal is to make her happy. And Andrew wants her for himself. At some point Arianna will have to choose between them, but first she needs to survive the plots against her.

    What did you love best about Becoming a Legend?

    I love watching Ari growing Stronger emotionally as well as physically! There is something about a Strong Female Lead that I like but it is cool to watch them go from not so strong & insecure to very strong & secure! Her transformation is coming along very nice!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Becoming a Legend?

    I have to say I went through all the emotions with this book! From laughing out loud to Crying even getting angry! That to me is a great book! If your emotions are that strong in a book it shows howhow GREAT THE AUTHOR IS!!


    What does Caprisha Page bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Caprisha Page is good at doing all the different people & I love her accents for a few of them!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    As I said earlier yes I laughed, cried! I was happyhappy, sad & angryangry! There were a few parts I was like "WHAT NO WAY" since I don't do Spoilers then I guess if you want to know what those parts were then you better grab yourself a copy of this book!


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to see what Book 3 has in store!

    Would you try another book from Jamie McGuire and/or Carly Robins?

    I've read plenty by Jamie!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I'm still listening I'll update later...


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Half the time it sounds like she is mocking or is what she is reading is bothers her!! I don't know if I can finish it with this narrator!


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

    So far not much & that's sad especially since her father's dies & all the other stuff that happens BUT DUE TO THE NARRATOR IT JUST SEEMS LIKE A BIG JOKE TO HER!

    Sassy Winthrop has just turned 21. But instead of being a time of fun, parties, and courting, it has been a time of loss, grief, and transitions. With the death of her beloved father, a kindly country vicar, Sassy is left not only without immediate family, but she must also leave the only home she has ever known to make room for the new vicar. And if that weren’t enough, she is also going through transition as her powers of light magic are completed.

    They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

    In Last Breath, the rain brought a new and dire threat to Morganville and its vampires...their ancient enemies, the draug. Now, the vampires are fighting a losing war, and it will fall to the residents of the Glass House - Michael, Eve, Shane, and Claire - to take the fight to an enemy who threatens to destroy the town, forever. Lovers of Morganville, rejoice: Black Dawn takes the intrigue, romance, and nail-biting suspense of the series to its highest level yet.

    Katy knows that the world changed the night the Luxen came. She can't believe that Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her-could destroy them all.

    Arianna has gathered the outside clans to decide her fate in marriage. A tournament will be held, and she is the prize, whether she wants to be or not. The only thing for her to do is watch the clan leaders fight over her, or is it? Thanks to her team's well-made plans, Arianna has other strategies in place. Hopefully one of those plans will earn her freedom. As the contestants gather and she learns more about the night human world, there are new allies to keep close and more enemies to keep even closer.

    Where does Winning the Legend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Sometimesa series gets drawn out but this one was good to the end... My only complaint is Andrew at first was a bad guy & Devon was MY VERY FAVORITE CHARACTER! So I was undecided on how it played out! It sounds like there is a spin off in the works! So we shall see!


    What other book might you compare Winning the Legend to and why?

    I love all paranormal so I loved this series!


    Have you listened to any of Caprisha Page’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This series is the only one I've listened to buy it was greatly narrated


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes & you will have to listen to it!

It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't."

    Crank Wilson left his South Boston home at sixteen to start a punk band and burn out his rage at the world. Julia Thompson left a secret behind in Beijing that exploded into scandal in Washington, DC, threatening her father's career and dominating her family's life. When Julia and Crank meet at an anti-war protest in Washington in the fall of 2002, the connection between them is so powerful it threatens to tear everything apart.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Song for Julia (Thompson Sisters) to be better than the print version?

    No!!! Even though I don't own the print version, The Audio Version Is good when the man(JACK WALLEN) is reading BUT WHEN THE WOMAN(ALANA RADER)IS READING IT'S SO AWFUL! I don't really like writing bad reviews & I Hardly ever do... BUT I JUST CAN'T HELP MYSELF HERE! THIS WOMAN REALLY SUCKS!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the story line & the Jack Wallen's accent is perfect for Crank!


    What didn’t you like about Jack Wallen and Alana Rader ’s performance?

    I loved Jacks performance BUT I HATE ALANA'S!? Alana is constantly making all kinds of weird noises & one minute she sounds like she is in a tunnel talking & the next it sounds like she is sucking on the microphone! You can gear her breathing, swallowing, FLUSHING THE DAMN TOILET EVEN!! I MEAN CONE ON LADY TAKE SOME PRIDE IN YOUR JOB! THIS AUTHOR HAS A GREAT BOOK & YOUR RUINING IT!


    If you could rename A Song for Julia (Thompson Sisters), what would you call it?

    I LOVE THE NAME I DON'T THINK I'D CHANGE IT! HOWEVER I'D DEFINITELY CHANGE HER VOICE! I KNOW, I KNOW I KEEP SAYING HOW HORRIBLE ALANA'S PERFORMANCE IS... BUT IT IS REALLY REALLY BAD!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the author would get it remade WITHOUT THE ANNOYING ALANA RADER!!
