    When she arrives at the hall, shaken by an unsettling disturbance that occurred during her travels, she is greeted by the two children now in her care, Isabella and Eustace. There is no adult present to represent her mysterious employer, and the children offer no explanation. Later that night in her room, another terrifying experience further reinforces the sense that something is very wrong. From the moment Eliza rises the following morning, her every step seems dogged by a malign presence that lives within Gaudlin's walls.

    Firstly, Alexia Tarabotti has no soul. Secondly, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Thirdly, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette. With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London's high society? Who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

    I was pretty excited about listening to this book. I had the series listed on goodreads for ages to read. My excitement was short lived however, I really couldn't get into the story line. I hated the way the main character is described and she had no personality to me. I also really hated the narration, I actually feel bad writing this but the voice was like nails on a chalkboard. All in all this was not for me.

    Cooper Krenshaw knows what it's like to feel the bright lights upon him, the sound of the crowd roaring when he walks on stage; after all, he happens to be one of the biggest names in country music at the moment. And he has knowingly just dropped off the grid; the first decision he has made on his own in quite some time. Cooper only thought he was looking for a challenge when he walked off of that concert stage in Chicago. After finding himself in Devil's Bend, Texas, he soon realizes that the dream he's been chasing might not be the one he was after all along.

    I felt like I could see everything coming in this story and it was so played out and boring.
    I really didn't like this story and female narrator really irritated me, I ended up but this on the highest speed possible as I wanted to get it over with as soon as possible.

    Jimmy Rabbitte is back. The man who invented the Commitments back in the eighties is now forty-seven, with a loving wife, four kids...and bowel cancer. He isn't dying, he thinks, but he might be. Jimmy still loves his music, and he still loves to hustle - his new thing is finding old bands and then finding the people who loved them enough to pay money for their resurrected singles and albums. On his path through Dublin he meets two of the Commitments - Outspan, whose own illness is probably terminal, and Imelda Quirk, still as gorgeous as ever.

    Roddy Doyle had me crying with laughter and teary from emotion.

    I loved this read, the narrator was great. I could picture this like a movie in my mind.

    Some parts where so funny I wouldn't recommend walking around listening, I think I looked like a mad lady while shopping when I couldn't stop laughing!

    Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with one hell of a hangover, a raging headache... and a pair of horns growing from his temples. Once, Ig lived the life of the blessed. Ig had it all, and more - he had the love of Merrin Williams, a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic. Then beautiful, vivacious Merrin was gone - raped and murdered, under inexplicable circumstances - with Ig the only suspect.

    For 16-year-old Tris, the world changes in a heartbeat when she is forced to make a terrible choice. Turning her back on her family, Tris ventures out, alone, determined to find out where she truly belongs. Shocked by the brutality of her new life, Tris can trust no one. And yet she is drawn to a boy who seems to both threaten and protect her. The hardest choices may yet lie ahead…. A debut novel that will leave you breathless.

    Would you try another book from Veronica Roth and/or Emma Galvin?

    Yes I enjoyed reading the book and Emma Galvin is a great narrator


    If you’ve listened to books by Veronica Roth before, how does this one compare?

    Ok, honestly I thought I was going to throw my phone to the ground if I heard 'He said' 'I said' 'she said' one more time. It was doing my head in and I some how put up with it throughout the next two books


    Did Emma Galvin do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, the differences where there


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    Story
    What did you like best about The Secret Circle, Volume I: The Initiation? What did you like least?

    I wanted to read this because the show ended so abruptly, I had no idea how different the book is compared to the show. Finding out there are 12 members of the circle and Faye is not the worse or most bitchy member/ Cassie's strong feelings of sisterhood and friendship for Diane was an eye opener.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Not much really, it would have been nice for there to be more spells in the first book. I think the book could have gone on a bit longer to have more of an impact


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I liked the narrator, cant fault her.


    Do you think The Secret Circle, Volume I: The Initiation needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, but I cannot seem to find it
