Willa Knight: Dead? Alive? Damned to a state of eternal bad luck? Willa and the Abcurse brothers are back, and more determined than ever to stick by each other. Unfortunately, Staviti has other plans, plans that threaten to change the natural order of the worlds—though nobody really understands why. His agenda may very well affect all beings on Minatsol, even those that thought themselves safe in Topia. Even Willa-invincible-Knight. Unsure with her new place in the worlds, Willa must follow the Abcurses to their new post: Champions Peak, a secluded mountain far from civilization, where the most powerful sols have been summoned to hone their abilities through direct contact with the gods. There is a chance that she might survive her time on the mountain, but it seems like staying alive amidst the powerful occupants of the Peak is the least of her concerns. Her real problem is staying on the mountain at all.

I have been continuously checking to see if there was another book in this series and finally there it was. The narrator does such a great job. though Willa does get a little annoying from time to time.

Kevin Kwan, best-selling author of Crazy Rich Asians, is back with a wickedly funny new novel of social climbing, secret emails, art-world scandal, lovesick billionaires, and the outrageous story of what happens when Rachel Chu, engaged to marry Asia's most eligible bachelor, discovers her birth father.

I was blown away when I found out there wasn't just one book after Crazy Rich Asians but two! I really felt things had been left so vague at the end of the first book. I liked the original narrator but the one for this book did a great job.

Every hundred years, tradition dictates that all eligible females in Sweetwater assemble for the choosing ceremony. Two vampire kings have separate territories within the surrounding countryside. Both are eager to pick their future brides. What a waste of her freaking time. Tanya is among the many women at the choosing ceremony. As far as she's concerned it's an outdated, sexist event and if it wasn't mandatory she so wouldn't be here. It's not important that the two males are ridiculously rich and handsome.

Seriously half the time I was trying to figure out if it was a real person reading this or if they just loaded the book into some computer program. the narrator only had emotion in her voice when she did the voice of Tanya or the vampire kings. It's incredibly noticeable when she does other female vampires. Which would have been over looked if her voice wasn't so mechanical when giving exposition.

Books like this are the reason there's a stigma with reading romance novels. I of course use that term very loosely with this book. You tell some one you like reading romance novels and they think "Oh, you like to read porn?" This book supports those thoughts. Tanya started out so strong willed then ended up a crying mess half way into the book. I am probably not even going to finish listening. Also the word pu**y (Don't know if it's okay to put that word in a review) should not sound like it has an o in it. I inwardly cringed every time it was said.

Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stones throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valleys pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg.

I wasn't really sure I would like this book since I hadn't been a big Maggie fan after the last. But once again the great narration and story drew me right in. Its nice to find a romance novel that has more story than sex.

Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season.

Great sub plots that don't take away from the main story. And they were unexpected which was the best part. Looking forward to watching the movie this summer! My only complaint is that the book really could use an epilouge to wrap up everything. It would have been nice to know what happened to all the characters I just fell in love with. Especially since my favorite character wasn't the main couple. and even with them things are a little left in the air.

Concerned that technology is about to chase mythological creatures out into the open (how long can Sasquatch stay hidden from Google maps?), the League for Interspecies Cooperation is sending Jillian to Louisiana on a fact-finding mission. While the League hopes to hold on to secrecy for a little bit longer, they're preparing for the worst in terms of human reactions. They need a plan, so they look to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where humans and supernatural residents have been living in harmony for generations.

She thought she had nothing else to give. She was wrong. After a new zombie attack, strange things begin to happen to her. Mirrors come to life, and the whispers of the dead assault her ears.

She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever. Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone. Her father was right. The monsters are real.
