At nine years of age, Logan Weber knows the routine. Keep quiet, make the food last, and don’t ever cause trouble. He’ll do what it takes to evade the rages of his troubled, violent father. Even though he’s only a child, Logan already knows too much - has seen too much. So when the opportunity presents itself, Logan runs. He has no idea where his journey will lead, or that the grandmother he’s been told is dead is desperately searching for him. Alone with no home of his own, Logan looks for a safe place to hide.

I hope that there is more to this story. I bought it several months ago but waited quite a long time to begin listening. It was worth the wait. I loved every second of it. I hope that there is sequal. it was an easy listen, and I enjoyed the characters.

It's been over a decade since Nora left her hometown of Scupper Island, Maine, and very seldom looked back. She's carved out a successful life in Boston, where no one knows her as the awkward girl with the delinquent sister and the dad who left, but a not-as-dramatic-as-it-sounds brush with death has her taking stock of her life. Inspired to reconnect with her prickly mother and snarky teenage niece, Nora returns home for the summer, where she's forced to face the people she's spent the last ten years trying to avoid.

I really enjoyed this feel good story. It kept my attention all the way through, and the narrator was great. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants an easy listen, and a little sweet romance. It was pg-13 with its romance scenes, which I appreciate.

It has been almost 10 years since Matthias graduated from the elite Blackburne School, where his roommate and best friend, Fritz, fled into the woods, never to be heard from again, in the middle of their senior year. Fritz vanished just after an argument over Matthias' breaking of the school's honor code, and Matthias has long been haunted by the idea that his betrayal led to his friend's disappearance. When he is offered the opportunity to return to Blackburne as an English teacher, he sees it as a chance to put his life back together.

I liked the storyline of this book. It seemed like the writer put a lot of thought into it. I'm not great at writing, so I may not be the best critic. However, I felt like the writing was a little amateur. I did appreciate that it wasn't packed with swear words, as it easily couild have been.

There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

This was an enjoyable book. Most definitely a book for adults only, due to intense language and graphic descriptive violence. But the author seemed intelligent, and planned out the book well. I liked it. The narrator wasn't cheesy, and had a nice voice.

Dawn Conners's parents are famous for finding historic treasures, but she has a knack for losing things - her job, her boyfriend, and now, her reputation. Thanks to a mud-slinging exposé, Dawn's late great-grandfather is assumed guilty of stealing silver from a century-old shipwreck. Hoping to clear his name, Dawn returns to Starlight Cove, her idyllic hometown on Lake Michigan, where the doomed vessel sleeps beneath the beam of a ramshackle lighthouse.

I loved this book! Easy listen, loveable characters, predictable romance/ mystery, topped off with a happy ending. Maybe a little cheesy, but I kind of love that about it. It was clean, and hag no bad language (that I remember). Its hard to find a book, these days, that you wouldn't immediately shut off if your husband or kids walked in. But this book is pretty much fine for any age to hear. Awesome daily deal! I'll be looking up more from this author.

Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell". But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness.

I loved this book! It had me laughing out loud constantly. This grumpy old man reminded me of my own dad, which automatically had a special place in my heart from the very beginning. I would recommend this book to everyone that I know :) it's uncommon to find a good book these days, where the characters have good morals, but this book has it all. Good laughs, high moral standards, loveable characters, and to top it off, is heartwarming. Just a feel good, happy kind of book, that you never want to get to the end of.

He was my older brother's best friend. He was never supposed to be mine. I thought we would get it out of our systems and move on. One of us did. One of us left. Now he's back, looking at me like he wants to devour me. And all those feelings I'd turned into anger are brewing into something else, something that terrifies me. He broke my heart last time. This time he'll obliterate it.

I enjoyed this book. It was a nice story and I knocked it out in one day. Never got tired of listening. It's definitely not for a young audience, and I found myself skipping a few scenes myself because audio porn isn't my thing. But overall, I was not disappointed with this book.
