    Set in the vibrant 14th century of Chaucer and the Black Death, the classic romance Katherine features knights fighting in battle, serfs struggling in poverty, and the magnificent Plantagenets - Edward III, the Black Prince, and Richard II - who ruled despotically over a court rotten with intrigue. Within this era of danger and romance, John of Gaunt, the king's son, falls passionately in love with the already married Katherine.

    Story

    Although I thought deep was a good book, it did not quite live up to the first three books in the series. The chemistry between the two main characters Liz and Ben didn't seem as passionate or genuine. Still this book was a solid one, and I look forward to reading more from Kylie Scott.

    Kylie Scott returns with the highly anticipated followup to international best seller LICK Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast - at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn’t plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn’t count on finding the one right girl.

    With Olympic tryouts on the horizon, the last thing 19-year-old Kinsley Bryant needs to add to her plate is Liam Wilder. He's a professional soccer player, America's favorite bad-boy, and has all the qualities of a skilled panty-dropper. A face that makes girls weep - check. Abs that can shred Parmesan cheese (the expensive kind) - check. Enough confidence to shift the earth's gravitational pull - double check. Not to mention Liam is strictly off limits. Forbidden. Her coaches have made that perfectly clear.

    This was a easy, lighthearted, funny book. I would've given it a higher rating if not for the narration, which I found a bit annoying. Not so annoying that I stopped listening, but enough that it detracts from the story.

    Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other.... which would explain why their marriage lasted only 12 hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman - or just what he needs.

    What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over?Alice Love is twenty-nine years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! she HATES the gym!) and discovers that she's actually thirty-nine, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce.

    Story

    What Alice forgot is the story of Alice Love, a 39-year-old mother of three who goes to the gym and passes out during her spin class, hitting her head and forgetting the last 10 years of her life. A lot has happened in that ten years, she's had three kids, become a lot more fit, and separated from her husband Nick, who ten years ago she was madly in love with. This is my favorite of Liane Moriarty's books. She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. She does such a great job with her character development, you really feel like you know and care about these people in her stories. There is some strong language in this book, so be forworned. Other then that, I highly recommend What Alice Forgot!

    When accident-prone Helen Grey finds a thong stuffed into the pocket of her boyfriend's best work trousers, it's time for her to move on. His excuse that he needed to dust the photocopier and just thought that it was a rag sounds like a lame excuse. Helen's life is propelled in an unexpected direction after her best friend, Ayshe, sets her a fourteen-day, life-changing challenge. Helen receives a task everyday which she must complete without question.

    Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.

    Story

    Big Little lies, starts with a murder. We then go back in time to before the night of the murder and see what's going on in three different women's lives. Their names are Madeline, Celeste, and Jane. All three women have children entering kindergarten this year, which is the common thread. The author does such a good job of making you like and understand each of the characters. The mystery of the book is that we don't find out who has been murdered until the end, so the whole book you're thinking which of these ladies is dead, and how does that affect their families and children. Some of the main themes of the book are bullying at school, and domestic violence. It's also a lot about relationships, and how women are strong, and can go through things that they didn't think they could go through, and become better people. I thought it was a beautiful book. I will definitely be reading more from this author.
