Having stalked his five young victims, he drowned them in the muddy waters of the Grand Canal. Sentenced to life imprisonment when he was just 19, Will is locked away in the city's Central Psychiatric Hospital.

This mystery was nice but a bit disappointing. le sigh.

At first, it seems black and white. It doesn't sound too unrealistic. Accidentally killing your girlfriends psychotic and jealous best friend.

But the ending was so disappointing. The romantic in me wished Allison and Will would get together after he got out of prison. Also kind of sad finding out he was indeed a killer.

The ending didn't give me the kind of closure I need in a good book.

Resonance. It's a given on the ice planet, forced upon you by the parasitic symbiont called the "khui". With resonance, a guy and a girl are paired up because they'll make great babies. It's a survival mechanism necessary for this sparsely populated world we're stranded on. Everyone expects resonance to happen when 20 newcomers are dropped onto the frosty world. I doubt anyone expects the gorgeous golden god named Ashtar to resonate to someone like me, though. But resonance seems to think we'd be great together. And Ashtar does, too.

I love Ashtar. I wish I had an Ashtar. Funny, possessive and sweet.

He knows who smells the sweetest. He has the hardest time adjusting to freedom. Plus, he and Veronica resonate the first.

it was so cute.

I am very curious about Willa's beast and if their resonance will have issues or not.

I'm still not sure which one comes next. I almost cried at the end. it was so funny and sweet and magical.

Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believes Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself.

I wasn't sure I'd like this, but it kept on showing up on my recommendations. it was surprisingly emotional and I really, really hope she continues with the series.

This is a post-apocalypse romance. 90% of the earth's female population has died.

And Audrey manages to escape death and capture only to find herself in a town where abuse to women is NOT tolerated. Every woman who gets raffled off, has 5 husband's. hehe.

There is so much drama involving another woman's husband's and she got stuck in fear.

She tries to go to "No Man's Land" only it's been taken over by sex traffickers. And she just realized how much she loved every one of her husband's. And they fight to save her.

The conclusion sets up the sequal quite nicely.

I love how reluctant Emma was. She only had sex with him because she thought it could be temporary. And to help free him.

And....... it ended up being permanent lol.

She fights bikers, the Zalorian, her desires, her tendency towards being a loner and not trusting.

And her mate just wanted her.

I hope his poor wings heal and he can fly better one day. I still feel so bad for him about that.

The Two Towers is the second volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic saga, The Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship has been forced to split up. Frodo and Sam must continue alone towards Mount Doom, where the One Ring must be destroyed. Meanwhile, at Helm’s Deep and Isengard, the first great battles of the War of the Ring take shape. In this splendid, unabridged audio production of Tolkien’s great work, all the inhabitants of a magical universe - hobbits, elves, and wizards - spring to life. Rob Inglis’ narration has been praised as a masterpiece of audio.

I loved it. A lot was the same as the movies, but a lot was sooooo different.

Gollum was so much more evil and Sam was way braver than I thought.

So happy that Treebeard is taking over that one tower. a new forest will grow.

I hope they find the Ent-wives one day.

I completely recommend this book to others. it's a great journey.
