What a great book! Each story is about one of Magnus’s friends with Thor running into each one of them (quite literally). Each story is read by a different narrator giving each character their own personality. If you love Hotel Valhalla and floor 19, listen to this book!!

Eleven-year-old Nikolas - nicknamed "Christmas" - has received only one toy in his life: a doll carved out of a turnip. But he's happy with his turnip doll, because it came from his parents, who love him. Then one day his father goes missing, and Nikolas must travel to the North Pole to save him. Along the way Nikolas befriends a surly reindeer, bests a troublesome troll, and discovers a hidden world of enchantment in the frozen village of Elfhelm.

Experience The Force Awakens as a Shakespeare play, complete with Elizabethan verse, Shakespearian monologues, and theatrical stage directions! As the noble Resistance clashes with the vile First Order, Rey, Finn, Poe Damaron, Kylo Ren, and BB-8 are pulled into a galaxy-wide drama - in iambic pentameter! Star Wars fans and Shakespeare enthusiasts alike will enjoy the authentic meter, reimagined movie scenes and dialogue, and hidden Easter eggs throughout.

Ok! Ok! I know a lot of people do not like Shakespear. You survived it during High School English, and swore you would never read that again! Please put aside your bias, and listen to this book! This book is hilarious, heart wrenching at times, and every entertaining! From the beginning, when you are introduced to the story, you will find yourself laughing so hard, your belly will hurt! Ian Doesher has created a Shakespearean world within the sci-if world that we all love. Trust me! Read this book!! Audible 20 Review Sweepstakes Entry.

I love this series!!! Each book has its own twists and turns, and leaves you breathless! This is the final book in the series, and I have to say I found myself laughing and crying to the very end! If you read only one series, make it this one! Claudia Grey is an amazing author. She can really draw you into the story, and make you feel like you are part of it.

Xander Miyamoto would rather do almost anything than listen to his sixth grade teacher, Mr. Stedman, drone on about weather disasters happening around the globe. When spring break begins at last, Xander plans to spend it playing computer games with his best friend, Peyton. Xander's father briefly distracts him with a comic book about some samurai warrior who pops out of a peach pit. Little does either boy know that the comic is a warning that they are about to be thrust into the biggest adventure of their lives.

Ok. It took me three times to get through the whole book. It starts a little slow, and seems a bit strange. But keep reading!!!! It picks up, and when it does, you’ll race to the finish! The strip all in all is really good. Just keep reading! You won’t regret it!

World War II continues, and Ada and her brother, Jamie, are living with their loving legal guardian, Susan, in a borrowed cottage on the estate of the formidable Lady Thorton - along with Lady Thorton herself and her daughter. Life in the crowded cottage is tense enough, and then, quite suddenly, Ruth, a Jewish girl from Germany, moves in. A German? The occupants of the house are horrified. But other impacts of the war become far more frightening. As death creeps closer to their door, life and morality during wartime grow more complex.

This is the second book of the series. Ada is a character that so many people can relate to. Not only is she battling the war that has consumed her country, but she is also battling the war of the memories of the past. This book takes you into Life in wartime Britain. Great read!

Wow! I have absolutely fallen in love with Blue and the Raven boys. And this story did not disappoint! The story catches you up from the very beginning and keeps your heart pumping till the very last word. You will find yourself so swept up in this story that you will audibly (no pun intended) gasp at some points. Will Patton (narrator) is fantastic. Each character has their own voice, and his tone sets the scene so well.

Shaharazad did not come to the castle for love, or hope of winning over the king's heart. Shaharazad came to the castle for revenge. The Wrath & The Dawn is an Amazing take on 1001 Arabian Nights, but instead of telling the stories to a wayward king this tale takes you into the politics of the kingdom, and the choices that haunt all those who live behind the walls.
