While nursing a broken heart, Josh Michaels is outraged when a neighbor abandons his very pregnant dog, Lucy, at Josh's Colorado home. But Josh can't resist Lucy's soulful brown eyes, and though he's never had a dog before, he's determined to do the best he can for Lucy - and her soon-to-arrive, bound-to-be-adorable puppies. Soon in over his head, Josh calls the local animal shelter for help, and meets Kerri, a beautiful woman with a quick wit and a fierce love for animals.

Would you listen to The Dogs of Christmas again? Why?

Bruce Cameron has done it again! He got me with A dogs purpose and a dogs journey. This one isn't written from the dogs point of view but it is amazing, especially if you are a dog lover. It made me laugh, warmed my heart, made my eyes get watery. When it was over with I was sad and i wanted more of this type of book!

If you could sum up A Dog's Journey in three words, what would they be?

If you liked the first book, a dog's purpose, then you will love this one too! I actually liked this one even better than the first one! Must read for dog lovers!

What did you like best about this story?

The voice of the writer, the way he wrote so well from the point of view of a dog!

Who was the most memorable character of A Dog's Journey and why?

Of course the dog, but also CJ.

Any additional comments?

I love this book!

Former bounty hunter Rachel Morgan has it pretty good. She has left the corrupt Inderland Runner Service and started her own independent service. She's survived werewolves, shape-changing demons, bad-hair days, and sharing a church with her vampire roommate, Ivy. She even has a cute (if human) boyfriend - what more could a witch want? But living with a reformed vampire isn't all it's cracked up to be.

This is a series I was grabbed into after reading all my favorite vampire novels such as the Sookie Stackhouse series, and Jeanine Frost books. It captured my attention, but it wasn't until the 3rd book that I really became completely addicted! However, you have to read the first two to fully understand it!
The author does a great job in bringing Rachael to life with all her problems! If you like any of the vampire novels that I mentioned above then you will like this series!!!!

I may have to give this one another chance but I got about two hours into it and my mind kept wondering. So either I have a lot of things on my mind or this isn't interesting enough to keep my mind from wondering. I may have to give it another try when I run out of credits and have nothing else to listen to.

Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

This was a surprisingly good book. Someone wrote a review saying it was copying Harry Potter but it's nothing like Harry Potter! It's a little confusing at first but it all ties together at the end.

We're the D'Artigo sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we are savvy - and sexy - operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But our mixed-blood heritage short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times. My sister Delilah shapeshifts into a tabby cat whenever she's stressed. Menolly's a vampire who is still trying to get the hang of being undead. And me? I'm Camille - a wicked-good witch. Except my magic is as unpredictable as the weather, which my enemies are about to find out the hard way.

It was interesting enough to read, however it's not crazy addicting. I'm not rushing to download the next one, like I am with the Cat and Bones series by Jeanine Frost. It's not a credit waste either.

If you are a dog and maybe even a cat person you will like this book. It is so interesting coming from the dogs point of view. Not only that, but it has made me appreciate my dogs even more than I already do. It made me laugh, and cry. It kind of has a slow start but its worth it to keep reading.The writer really does a remarkable job of wrapping you into the characters, that you can feel as if you are there. It also makes me think about dogs having past lives as well. Give it a listen.

Born in a village deep in the Cambodian forest, Mam was sold into sexual slavery by her grandfather when she was 12 years old. For the next decade, she was shuttled through the brothels that make up the sprawling sex trade industry of Southeast Asia. Trapped in this dangerous and desperate world, she suffered the brutality and horrors of human trafficking - rape, torture, deprivation - until she managed to escape with the help of a French aid worker.

This story is so interesting, but also deeply disturbing! The story is great and it starts out when the writer is a child and all throughout her being grown up, and how she tries to help other girls like her. This book really opened my eyes and makes me want to get involved in efforts to stop the sex-trafficking. It does make me happy that I was born in America as opposed to Cambodia!
