    There are reasons we fear the night. He isn't one of them. Bill Ryder was a dateless dweeb...then he died. Unfortunately for him that was just the beginning of his troubles. He awoke to find himself a vampire, one of the legendary predators of the night. Unfortunately for him, he was still at the bottom of the food chain. Now he finds himself surrounded by creatures stronger, deadlier and a whole lot cooler than he is. Worst yet, they all want him dead...permanently this time.

    Good self-deprecating, only moderately geeky main character was easy to like. Every time he did something ... or didn't do something , that could have lead to a hole in the plot, there was an "Oh yeah.." moment that brought things back to a logical conclusion. I'm also reading the Besty Vampire queen series, and they are similar in comic flavor.
    I say it's surprisingly good, because I only bought it for the low price tag.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was 16.

    I got this book for free, and held off listening to it. Finally listened to it when I ran out of credits, and didn't want to pay $20 for another book. Surprise, surprise! I really enjoyed it. I'm not usually one for romance novels, but this one was really entertaining. Glad I listened!

    When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn't until 11 years later that Wendy discovers her mother might have been right. With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself in a world she never knew existed - a world both beautiful and frightening, and Wendy's not sure she wants to be a part of it.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I am about as positive as they get when it comes to fantasy fiction, but this book felt like it was written by a 15 year old. That and they never adequately address the reasoning behind the "switch". If they had killed the other kid or dumped him off someplace, THAT might have been mildly believable.
    To the readers credit, she kept me listening, and continually hoping that the holes in the story would be filled. Maybe they are in future novels, but I'll never know. I'm really glad I got this on sale and didn't waste a credit on it.


    Has Switched turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What character would you cut from Switched?

    the whiny and complacent lead one.

    In Coraline's family's new flat are twenty-one windows and fourteen doors. Thirteen of the doors open and close. The fourteenth is locked, and on the other side is only a brick wall, until the day Coraline unlocks the door to find a passage to another flat in another house just like her own.

    If you could sum up Coraline in three words, what would they be?

    I love everything about this book. Now, the song that pops up several times in the reading.... yeah, I could do without that. Grated on my nerves.

    In this sparkling and provocative new book, the renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman navigates the depths of the subconscious brain to illuminate surprising mysteries. Taking in brain damage, plane spotting, dating, drugs, beauty, infidelity, synesthesia, criminal law, artificial intelligence, and visual illusions, Incognito is a thrilling subsurface exploration of the mind and all its contradictions.
