Would you listen to How to Train Your Dragon again? Why?

I listened to this with my kids and we all enjoyed it immensely! Much better than the movies (although we love those too!) David Tennant makes this series so amazing! His voice and accent and character detail are spot on and my kids and I laughed and laughed while listening about Hiccup and his adventures.

Making a living reproducing famous artworks for a popular online retailer and desperate to improve her situation, Claire is lured into a Faustian bargain with Aiden Markel, a powerful gallery owner. She agrees to forge a painting - a Degas masterpiece stolen from the Gardner Museum - in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But when that very same long-missing Degas painting is delivered to Claire's studio, she begins to suspect that it may itself be a forgery. Her desperate search for the truth leads Claire into a labyrinth of deceit where secrets hidden since the late 19th century may be the only evidence that can now save her life.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book. It took me awhile to figure out the mystery and it had a satisfying conclusion. It did drag a bit in the middle and I felt like some things were just filler. The narrator was excellent. A very enjoyable experience!

Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs. The trick with found things, though, is how easily they can be lost. Friends can betray. Mothers can disappear. Visions can mislead. Certainties can unravel.

Where does Blue Lily, Lily Blue rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the third in the Raven Cycle series and all of them are fantastic. Will Patton really brings life to each character. I look forward to each new book in the series because of his fantastic narration. Maggie Stiefvater is a great author and she weaves a really fun and mysterious tale.
