    I loved this story. Blood Oath kept my interest. Novel had great mix of characters and Bronson Pinchot is a wonderful reader. I cannot wait for the next book to release. No doubt this series is going to be fun.

  • The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

    One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from best-selling and acclaimed author Holly Black.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, it was ok but not something I would recommend.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Holly Black? Why or why not?

    Probably not


    Which character – as performed by Christine Lakin – was your favorite?

    She did a good job with all the characters. I just never felt attached to any of them, not because of the performance but just no real connection.


    Was The Coldest Girl in Coldtown worth the listening time?

    It wasn't a complete waste of time. Just wouldn't recommend for anyone other than a teenager.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Loved Narrator....Cannot believe they changed narrator in book two and three. I previewed the audio in book two and was truly upset therefore I chose not to purchase the next two books. New narrator sounds like a 40 year old instead of a perky twenty one year old.The individual responsible for this change needs to be fired.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    Zachary says: "Matterhorn"
    "2nd to none"
    Overall

    This is by far the best war novel I have ever "read". As a vet myself, I found the description of life in the Marines accurate thus making this book a wonderful reading experience.

    Andy Carpenter gains possession of an adorable Bernese puppy whose owner was brutally murdered. Few can rival Andy's affection for dogs, and he will do whatever it takes to insure that this little pup doesn't fall into the wrong hands. However, his playful new friend is valued by several people, many of whom are willing to resort to violence to get what they want.It will take more than Andy's usual courtroom theatrics to save this dog, including a little help from his beloved Golden Retriever, Tara.

    John says: "New Tricks"
    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    If you like the other Andy Carpenter novels, then you will like this one just as well. Grover Gardner is a great reader for these books. I like that Lori is more involved in this book. I hope there will be another one.

    Overall

    After reading the Twilight series, I have gone through many books trying to find something I liked as well. I started watching True Blood, not knowing that it was based on a book. The first book in the series was very much like the show, but the 2nd and 3rd take a different turn. I am so hooked on these books now. I am glad there are 9 books in this series, so far, because I am loving these books and can't wait to get to the 4th one!

    Before she joined Reaper in hunting Gregor's gang of rogue bloodsuckers, privileged princess Topaz was gunning for just one vamp: Jack Heart. The gorgeous con man had charmed his way into her bed, her heart, and her bank account, taking her for half a million dollars and vanishing without a word.

    Overall

    I understood the point maggie was trying to make between jack and topaz the first and the fiftieth time. Enough already. I felt like there should have been more focus on the group than a book about separatists. With that being said, I still enjoyed the story and I hope that seth gets his lisp fixed before book 3.

    As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

    Kirsty says: "Continues to Please"
    "Super book!"
    Overall

    I am addicted to this series of books. Stephanie Myers does a wonderful job of bringing words to life. The way she writes makes me want to read more, but I can't find anything that compares to these books. I can't wait till the next book in the series comes out in August! I thought this would be a book just for teens, but I am 33 and I love all 3 books in this series.
