    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Much like the first book of this series, I was instantly drawn into the story. Again you are transported to a beautifully written Sci-Fi world (set in the same time as the first) with non-stop action and thrills. Although the worlds are similar, the characters, planet and story are very different. Unlike the slow burn of the first book, this one starts out with a bang and never lets up until the end. It was absolutely thrilling. Narration was great too. I can’t wait until the next book by this author.

    Emma has just learned that her mother is a long-lost Poseidon princess and now struggles with an identity crisis. As a half-breed, she’s a freak in the human world and an abomination in the Syrena realm. Syrena law states that all half-breeds should be put to death.

    Much like the first book this was a light and fluffy beach read. I enjoyed the story and it did have some funny parts, but overall it was just ok. I only purchased this book because the first one had a cliffhanger ending. (annoying) Thankfully this book wraps up the story nicely and I felt it came to a satisfying conclusion. Even though there is a third book, I didn’t feel compelled to purchase it. Definitely not what the publishers want but I was happy as a listener.

    Emma and her friend Chloe are spending vacation in Florida. When Emma (literally) runs into a hot guy named Galen on the beach, little does she know he's a prince of the Syrena. Galen and Emma both feel something strange - is it attraction? - and Galen suspects that Emma might well be the girl he's heard of - a human who can communicate with fish. What follows is a deadly scene with a shark in which Galen witnesses Emma's gifts. He must know more about her, and follows her back to New Jersey, and high school.

    If you are in the mood for a light and fun listen than look no further. However, if you want a story that is multi-layered and complex you should definitely skip this one. This is your typical beach read (very light and fluffy) It was a sweet story with some likeable parts and overall I found it enjoyable. But Mermaids just really don’t do it for me. Unfortunately it ends in a cliffhanger so I felt compelled to get book 2. If that sort of thing annoys you, don’t bother getting this one.

    Things are about to heat up.… Brandi Vaughn wishes she could stand out. She’d do anything to get out from behind the shadow of her socialite family - which now includes Dani, her half sister, recently discovered to be the most powerful vampire known to their kind.

    But Brandi is more extraordinary than anyone realizes. The fiery young vamp has a secret elemental power - an inner flame that she must keep under control so as not to reveal herself to the dangerous rogue vampire targeting exceptional talents like hers.

    If you enjoyed the first book of the Forbidden Bond Series than you will love book 2. From the start it is a non-stop thrill-ride of action, adventure and mystery. My heart was racing after the first few chapters! Although I expected this book to continue the story of Dani and Chase, it focused instead on Dani's half sister Brandi. Wow did I really enjoy her story. The author did include characters from the first book but it was nice to get Brandi's story and for the author to introduce some delicious new characters (Greyson, Derek). I'm looking forward to the next book and I hope it focuses on Griffin.

    This is a world where sin and salvation collide. This is a world where a cynical fallen angel struggles with the seven deadly sins and seven chosen souls. With the spellbinding Immortal, the riveting series that "changed the face of paranormal romance" comes to an epic close as mankind's reluctant savior struggles with his greatest challenge yet.

    Story

    I was surprised to discover this was the final book in the Fallen Angels Series. What about 7 books for 7 souls – or at least that is what I had assumed. It makes me wonder if JR Ward got tired of writing this series and just decided to end it at book 6. The one was good but it did feel rushed compared to the previous books in the series. I would have preferred a little more “meat on the bone” to this story but I guess the author had another view. Fair enough, it’s her series.

    Overall I mostly enjoyed this book and I am satisfied with the overall conclusion even if it did feel rushed. As with all the other books, Devina was the true star and her character made me laugh and at times feel sorry for her. I credit Ward for her brilliant writing and character development.

    I would recommend this series to fans of Ward or those who enjoy paranormal romance or fantasy.
    4 stars!

    This is such a hard review for me to write since I really can’t explain why I kept listening to this one. I think I have a love/hate relationship with this book. There were so many things I didn’t like about the main character and many of her choices/actions were unrealistic for someone her age. I usually don’t have an issue with suspending my belief when it comes to paranormal romance but I struggled with this one. All the negative comments aside, I just couldn’t stop listening to this one. What was it about this book?? I suppose I really enjoyed the mystery and just had to know everyone’s deep dark secrets. Although not all the secrets were revealed in this book. I’m sure I will purchase the next one because the price is right and I apparently need some answers.

    I’ve enjoyed all the books in this series but Origins is by far the best one yet.
    After that gut-wrenching cliffhanger in Opal, I was a little hesitant to dive into this one. It’s a game changer for sure and will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat. Without giving away too many details, this one felt like two stories in one. The first being Katy’s experience as a prisoner by Daedalus and the second the future of the Luxen race and the big reveal (the game changer). The dual POV was a nice addition to this series as well. I really enjoyed getting into Daemon’s head in this one. There’s another cliffhanger with Origins but thankfully it won’t rip your heart out like Opal did. I can’t wait to listen to the final installment of this fantastic series!

    5 stars!

    After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.

    I am so disappointed with this book! It was such a colossal waste of time and I will never be able to get back those 23+ hours I lost on this horrible book.
    I should have expected disappointment after book two but I had high hopes that it was just suffering from "middle book syndrome". Sadly no...
    I adored A Discovery of Witches, thought Shadow of Night was boring, but I seriously disliked The Book of Life. It did not tie up any loose ends, there was absolutely no resolution on Ashmole 782 (really, what was the point of all of that?) and it was flat out boring.
    I honestly don't know what happened to this series!

I honestly didn't think they could pull off another book as good as The Beautiful Series but they did! I'm just mad at myself for not listening to this one sooner!! I can't wait for the next installment and I can assure you I will not wait 3-4 months before devouring it.

    5 Sweet Stars!!
