    Jack Wolff has feasted upon the flesh of women for decades. Jack is a smooth, handsome charmer living off inherited money, moving from one hunting ground to another as he takes victim after victim. At the rustic Wagon Wheel Lodge, his prey is a lovely, underage teenage girl with abusive parents. Jack plays the savior, while he has something far darker in mind.... Will the lecherous wolf strike again with his usual impunity? Or is an unknown adversary waiting in the darkness?

    Kaeleigh and Raeanne are 16-year-old identical twins, the daughters of a district court judge father and politician mother running for U.S. Congress. Everything on the surface seems fine, but underneath run very deep and damaging secrets. When the girls were nine, Daddy turned to his beloved Kaeleigh in ways a father never should. Raeanne needs to numb the pain of not being Daddy's favorite; Kaeleigh wants to do everything she can to feel something normal, even if it means cutting herself and vomiting after every binge.

    I thought this was a very good book. It was a little confusing at times trying to figure out who was "speaking" Kayleigh or the other sister but that gets explained at the end and it all makes better sense.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Twelve: A Novel to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I would. I listened to parts of the book while driving to and from work and sometimes before bed when my eyes were too tired to read and read the print edition during lunch and after work. I found the audible version to be excellent. The narrator did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life.


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

    No


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I don't know. That is why I'm not a writer.

    Singing Songs is the masterful realization of a young girl's journey to adulthood in a chaotic, abusive, and fragmented world. It is the story of a strange and beautiful metamorphosis and makes a profound statement about the dark and secret places of family life. Tilly wrote this book based on her own memories as a child.

    What would have made Singing Songs better?

    A story line with an ending.


    Has Singing Songs turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was fine.


    What character would you cut from Singing Songs?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    This book was useless. It was about a disfunctional family and would have been good if it had had an ending of some kind. I expected the kids to be taken away or the parents charged with child abuse or something. It just left off with no conclusive ending at all.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    What did you like best about Go the F--k to Sleep? What did you like least?

    I liked that I could relate to it. I have felt like that before when my kids were little and wouldn't go to sleep. I thought the story would be funnier though.


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

    I didn't really have one.


    Do you think Go the F--k to Sleep needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No.

    Gemma is the story of a child abduction written from two widely divergent points of view: 12 year-old Gemma and Hazen Wook, the 36-year-old man who abducts her. Hazen is a violent pedophile, a sexual obsessive, and Tilly does not white-wash or sanitize his thoughts in any way. This book is scary and not for the faint of heart.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gemma. She was such a brave character.


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

    She made it feel like you were really listening to Gemma speak and not someone just reading the story.
