    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.

    Story

    This was one of those books that I just wasn’t sure was going to be that good, but I changed my mind once I began reading the book. The author does an excellent job of pulling the reader into the story and making us want to read more and more and more until the book is done. It is a unique twist to the dystopian future of the world and what those left have to live through. The character was very weak in the beginning and I didn’t want to like her. But the way Anna Carey develops her character, you find yourself beginning to understand and pull for her. This may have been a book for the younger audience, but as an older reader I definitely found it an excellent read and have even recommended it to others. I enjoyed it so much that I have purchased the second and third book in the trilogy. That is always the mark of a good read!

    Cathy Cramer is a former lawyer and investigative blogger who writes commentary on local homicides. When she finds a threatening note warning her that she’s about to experience the same kind of judgment and speculation that she dishes out in her blog, Cathy writes it off as mischief…until her brother is caught in the middle of a murder investigation - the victim is his ex-wife. As her brother is tried and convicted in the media, and bloggers have a field day, Cathy wonders if she should have taken the threat more seriously.

    I really enjoyed the storyline however, the narrator was way too dramatic and the pitiful voice is awful. She made the women sound very weak always breaking down over every little thing. Other than the drama queen voice I thought it was great and I'm anxious to read book two.

    I find these books to be an entertaining read. Even though the books go on for quite a bit, the author has managed unique twists and turns. I will say that I seem to have noticed more grammatical and spelling errors in this book than the others, but can overlook that for a good read.

    In the fall of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.

    Story

    The Best of Me is one of those books that almost anyone would enjoy. It reminds us of lost youth, lost love and our life in general. The book takes the love of two teens who are separated by circumstances and shows what happens when they meet many years later and with so many hard life experiences behind both of them. It makes us look within to see where we are in life, our regrets and shows how very short and unexpected life can be. Nicholas Sparks is a master at writing about love and life and this book is thoroughly enjoyable. It’s not one of his best books, but well worth the read. And when reading, especially the last third of the book, be sure and have tissues handy. They will definitely be needed.

With Miranda's mind broken by forbidden sorcery, Caldan is forced to disobey the most sacrosanct laws of the Protectors if he is to have any chance of healing her. But when one of the emperor's warlocks arrives to take control of him, he begins to suspect his burgeoning powers may be more of a curse than a blessing.

    This is the second in the Sorcery Ascendant series and I found it to be a really good read. The book had plenty of action and kept the reader’s attention throughout. Never knew what was going to come next and it definitely kept my attention. I can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out.

Vowing to discover for himself who his parents really were, and what led to their violent end, he is thrust into the unfamiliar chaos of city life.

But he soon learns the world outside the monastery is a darker place than he ever imagined, and his treasured sorcery has disturbing depths. As a shadowed evil manipulates the unwary and forbidden powers are unleashed, Caldan is plunged into an age-old conflict that brings the world to the edge of destruction.

    Refusing to believe that she would be abandoned as a young child, Jenna searches for her mother regularly online and pores over the pages of Alice's old journals. A scientist who studied grief among elephants, Alice wrote mostly of her research among the animals she loved, yet Jenna hopes the entries will provide a clue to her mother’s whereabouts. Desperate to find the truth, Jenna enlists two unlikely allies in her quest.

    What an unusual book. After I first started the book I didn’t think I was really going to like it … I thought there’s just too much on elephants in this story and blah, blah, blah. But shortly thereafter I realized that the book was really well written, interesting and had grabbed my attention. I couldn’t stop listening to it. Then near the end, it was just WOW! I was stunned by the big reveal in the plot. Jodi Picoult must have done an immense amount of research into elephants and is very descriptive in the lives, grieving and way that elephants live. But at the same time, she interwove it with her three main characters, Jenna, the psychic and the detective, along with Jenna’s parents and the elephant preserve. Yes, it’s emotional, but at the same time entertaining and definitely well worth the read.

    On May 13, 1945, 24 American servicemen and WACs boarded a transport plane for a sightseeing trip over “Shangri-La,” a beautiful and mysterious valley deep within the jungle-covered mountains of Dutch New Guinea. Unlike the peaceful Tibetan monks of James Hilton’s best-selling novel Lost Horizon, this Shangri-La was home to spear-carrying tribesmen, warriors rumored to be cannibals. But the pleasure tour became an unforgettable battle for survival when the plane crashed. Miraculously, three passengers pulled through.

    What a great read during Veteran's Day. This book will make you think about what our men and women face every day. I'm so thankful that I live in a country that has such courageous people in its Armed Forces. The author was able to capture the feelings and the setting of Shangri-la and make the reader feel that they were actually there. Enjoyed it.

    What a sweet read. Yes, we know when Debbie Macomber writes a book that we are going to get a solid, good read and this book met the mark. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it while on a trip. This was one of those stories where you knew what was going to happen, but it is the season to be joyful and this book kept you in that mood. Good job!
