    Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner - and speed - with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup into her Beautiful Stranger.

    Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered. This was worse. Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland - known as The Death Shop - are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild - a savage - and her only hope of staying alive.

    meh. i dunno. i might have liked this book more if the performance was better. i think YA books should be narrated by a 20/30something, not by someone who sounds like my grandmother. the abrupt ending forces you to read book 2 if you want any answers & i dunno if i'm that invested in these character to invest in another book.

    For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender, and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart. Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes....

    i don't know a man alive that would put up with this girl's... issues.


    i think my reaction to her being kicked in the head pretty much summed up my feelings for this book. i actually hoped it knocked some sense into her & would FINALLY put an end to her wishy-washy decisions. at times i felt like my 6 yr old had a better grasp on her emotions than this chick. no body is that oblivious.

    The selection began with 35 girls. Now, with the group narrowed down to the Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's love is fiercer than ever. The closer America gets to the crown, the more she struggles to figure out where her heart truly lies. Each moment she spends with Maxon is like a fairy tale, filled with breathless, glittering romance. But whenever she sees her first love, Aspen, standing guard, she's swept up in longing for the life they'd planned to share.

    i thought the performance & audio quality were better on the first book. the story is just more of the same. at times i wanted to slap America for being blind to what was going on. overall, this series is ok. not the greatest thing i've ever read, but entertaining. i wouldn't necessarily recommend it to anyone i know.

    Senior year is over, and Lucy has the perfect way to celebrate: tonight, she's going to find Shadow, the mysterious graffiti artist whose work appears all over the city. He's out there somewhere - spraying color, spraying birds and blue sky on the night - and Lucy knows a guy who paints like Shadow is someone she could fall for. Really fall for. Instead, Lucy's stuck at a party with Ed, the guy she's managed to avoid since the most awkward date of her life. But when Ed tells her he knows where to find Shadow, they're suddenly on an all-night search around the city.

    so, apparently, i don't care for an Australian accent. nothing personal, Australia. i probably would have liked the story more if i had read it instead of listened. the way the author describes the art her character sees around her makes me want to paint or sculpt or draw or create anything with my hands.

    For 35 girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime: the opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth... to be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels... to live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon. But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her, and leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want.

    narrator sounds like a lifeless computer but it's tolerable. this book has some harsh reviews and low stars. no, it's not the greatest book i've ever read but it was still entertaining. i saw a review that said it was The Bachelor meets Cinderella meets The Hunger Games & i'm completely agree. there's really no better way to describe it. i will read the second one b/c i need the closure.

    "You can't touch me," I whisper. I'm lying, is what I don't tell him. He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him. But things happen when people touch me. Strange things. Bad things. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own.

Do yourself a favor & read the Shatter Me series - even if its just to read how Mafi describes the drinking a glass of water. Its like listening to art. You won't regret it.

Nursing a recent heartbreak, Taryn Mitchell believes men are best kept at a safe distance. But when Ryan Christensen unexpectedly bursts through the front door of her pub, she can’t help but be drawn in

    Story

    i don't like giving negative reviews, but... seriously, this was a 22hr audiobook & the "action/drama/plot" didn't kick in till around hour 18. i'd say about half of the story coulda been cut out & readers still would have gotten the complete picture. in fact, you could probably start reading at the last 1/4 of the book & be completely fine.
    words i'd use to describe this book: long, redundant, predictable, flat. i wanted to slap Taryn more times than i could count. my eyes couldn't roll back far enough in my head at some points. i'm honestly surprised i finished it. i'm gonna pass on the 2nd book.

    The narration performance & audio quality were perfect.

    Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her - people with gifts - and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance. She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch. Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

    Layken Cohen isn't your typical 18-year-old. After the recent death of her father, she is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's slowly losing hope. Enter Will Cooper: The 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for performing "Slams". Will and Layken immediately form an intense and emotional connection neither of them knew they needed until it was found.

    Story

    The poor quality of this recording is the only negative thing I can stay about this story. I found a few times where the audio would loop - like they re-recorded some lines but forgot to take out the original. There was also a lot of 'white noise' in the background (can't think of any other way to describe it) as if the audio was turned up too loud or something. I don't know - it was just a poor quality recording.

    That being said -- the story was great. I loved the characters, the twists and drama. The characters are real/relatable and I was quickly invested in their lives. It ended to soon (and I mean that in a good way). I don't want to spoil any of the plot so I won't say more.

    Overall, I feel like the poor quality of the recording was worth tolerating for this story.
