    The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning, along with the houses in which they were hidden. Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires. And he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs or the joy of watching pages consumed by flames, never questioned anything until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid.

    This happened to be this month's book club selection and since I found it on the 4.95 sale I thought it was my lucky day. Ray Bradbury is very descriptive and sometimes longwinded. This is the second book I have listened to of Bradbury and I think the narrators he has for his books are sleep inducing and I ended up using a fast speed, which I thought was ironic due to the content of the story. The story is better the second half of the book. This is a thought producing story and I found myself pondering many scenarios of today vs. Bradbury's vision of the future. I also found myself comparing this dystopia book written in 1953 to the rash of books that have come out in recent years with the same kind of theme. Bradbury was a pioneer in this type of literature. I wonder if this book might have been the inspiration for the movie Equilibrium (which is really good).

    Katniss Everdeen continues to struggle to protect herself and her family from the Capitol in this second novel from the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.

    Story

    Another awesome addition to the Hunger Games Trilogy. I will always like book one best, but this book also packs quite a punch. Lots of action, intrigue, romance, friendship and loyalty is involved in the story. As the trilogy moves along there is more Panem political intrigue and what the Capital and the President expects from Katniss. In this book Katniss tries to stay under the radar, but the injustice of the Capital keeps her on her toes and then the 75th Hunger Games begin and causes all kinds of trouble. And like with all young adult series out nowadays there is a love triangle. Who do you vote for Peeta or Gale? I personally was always on the fence until the third book. I liked the new character additions to the story. Narrator does a good job.

    With the Japanese Imperium at war with the Soviet Union, and the United States watching cautiously on the sidelines, Second Lieutenant Joe Sullivan of the U.S. Marines is sent on a dangerous mission to Tokyo. The Russians have Summoned a demon of epic proportions to attack the city, and all that stands in its deadly path is an untested Japanese super-robot. Now, Joe is at the controls, his gravity-spiking Power at the ready. But that is one huge, mean Demon....

    20 or so years later Jake and Origami have a son who is just like his dad. Of course this will cause him to get into trouble. So Joe goes to Tokyo to fight Godzilla in the Pacific Rim style. So while not new material Larry Correia still makes me laugh. And while I wait for more books to come out from either the Grimnoir or the Monster Hunter series, this is a nice taste to keep me wanting more. Same narrator as the other Grimnoir series and he does an awesome job.

    This classic tale is a fantastical fable of two dear friends - one of whom goes astray and is literally lost to the north woods, while the other undertakes an epic journey to rescue him. This charming, strange, and wonderful story is a timeless allegory about growing up and the challenges of staying true to one's self, and it served as the wintry inspiration for the blockbuster hit Frozen.

    I don't see much resemblance to Frozen, only snow and that seems a thin reason for comparison. Overall a cute mini story about friendship and what we are willing to do for it, with some Christianity mix into the story. Thanks Audible for the freebie.

Caught in a tug of war between Heaven and Hell, he must weigh his thirst for revenge against his desire for a mysterious female named Blaspheme - a female whose very origins could deliver him into salvation - or destruction.

    Story

    If you are a fan of this series, you won't be disappointed. With romance, action, demon/angel lore, friendship, humor, and even some emotional drama this book is great. Man the cover is sexy, makes me drool. Both the hero and heroine are tarnished and that's part of what I love about them. There are lots of appearances from past characters and it made me want to read the whole series over again.

    It has been over a year since I read Reaver, I had a bit of a time remembering all the little details of this series and I wish that I had taken the time to reread the other books again. I do recommend reading Larissa Ione's other books starting with the Demonica, then the Horseman series before reading this because there is a lot of references to the previous books in this series.
    Will this be the final book for the Demonica/Horseman series? Probably, but my hopes are for more. According to the beginning of this book Larissa Ione doesn't know for sure yet either. At the end of the book there is an epilogue put on the authors website "larissaione.com/blog/not-the-end." I haven't had the chance to read it yet but hopefully it is not the end of the series. Narrator does a pretty good job.

    If you are looking for a new series after this one, I recommend reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter Series. This book reminded me of the Dark Hunter series a bit.

    A light romance and although far from my favorite it was an easy listen. The book was a bit more of the mafia genre than I usually like, which is just not my taste. Overall I liked the heroine but she was sometimes a bit of a rag. Hero seemed to perfect to be true, but since this is fiction he was scrumptious Count. I did enjoy this book even with its minor faults. I would read another book from this author if there was a sale, but probably not if I had to pay full price or a credit. Narrator was good, I have always enjoyed her work.

    This book is fun and full of adventure. I just love this series. I started out listening to this series with my 11 year old son. Since I listen to books so much faster than him I went ahead of him and started reading the rest of these by myself. Since I enjoyed these stories I have no problem listening to them again with him. This book had a new character in that reminded me of a Professor Gilderoy Lockhart from Harry Potter, which made me laugh. As usual there is doom coming for the folks on the Island of Burk and we get to go on the adventure with Hiccup and his friends to save everyone. The narrator is excellent and I would gladly listen to anything he narrated.

Two nations of the Weird are waging a cold war, and their conflict is about to spill over into the Edge - and Cerise's life. William, a changeling soldier who left behind the politics of the Weird, has been forced back into service to track down a rival nation's spymaster. When William's and Cerise cross paths, sparks fly - but they'll have to work together if they want to succeed…and survive.

    Another winner from Ilona Andrews, I enjoyed William and Cerise's story. There are so many great things I liked about this book such as the characters, the magic, the passion, the humor, the adventure, and a lot of monsters around in the story. I was glad that William got his woman, because he was just too sweet not to have one. Cerise was a kick ass woman that was strong enough to deal with William and his faults. I loved the back woods hillbilly style of Cerise, her family and where they lived. There was a few times I was a little confused on the details of the story but only because I think the authors tried to jam too many side characters into the story. Narrator does a good job.

    Supernatural in order on Audible playlist

    1. 4 stars. Vampire Fight Club by Larissa Ione, book 5.5 in the Demonica series. A good addition to the Demonica/Horseman series. I think that it could have easily been a full length story. Way better than her other short story that was written. 3 hours 1 min.

    2. 3 stars. Darkness Eternal by Alexandria Ivy, book 7.5 in the Guardians of Eternity series. Story was okay but I'm not a huge fan of this series and after reading book one I gave up this author. 3 hours 8 mins.

    3. 3.5 stars. Kane by Jacquelyn Frank, book 1.5 in the Nightwalker series. This book will make a lot more sense if book 1, Jacob is read first. Of course this mostly took place in a bed so it wasn't that exciting. But good for hot sex. 2 hours 39 mins.

    4. 4.5 stars. Dragon on Top by GA Aikens, book 4.5? in Dragon Kin series. I really liked this book and I wish that Audible would get the entire series. I have read all of Shelly Laurenston aka GA Aikens, Pride Series and have enjoyed it and I know I would enjoy the rest of the Dragon Kin series. 4 hours 48 mins.

    Not my favorite narrator. Justine Eyre has a slight smokers voice but I didn't mind her too much.

    I wasn't a big fan of the first book Bound by Night, I thought the series may have potential so I went ahead and purchased this one. Then I found myself passing this book over for others, I had no real desire to see if this book was better than the first. Which is why it took me a while to listen to it. Luckily this book is better than the first, although still not as good as the Demonica/Horseman series. In the last book the biggest factor that bugged me was the characters, I didn't really like them. In this book I liked Hunter and Aylin much better and I was interested in how their future would turn out. I will be giving this series another shot if Larissa Ione writes another, but my hopes are for more books in the Demonica/Horseman series to be written. If you liked the first book then get this book, but if you are not a fan then this book is more of the same. Narrator was okay, but luckily for me not all narrators are a make it or break it deal.

    A really good light paranormal romance, something that made my day at work just fly by. I bought this book because Jennifer Crusie wrote it even though I wasn't sure about the story, it didn't really sound like the type of book I would like at first. I don't usually like romances where the hero and heroine have been together then broke up and then get back together. Fortunately their romance was more of a side story. The real story was Andy and the kids learning to trust each other and the ghost story haunting the house. There was also Jennifer Crusie's trade mark crazy characters added to the book that made this a fun story. Narrator does a really good job.
