Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening, her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face and then never speaks another word. Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety.

I have to be honest, this is not the most thrilling book. I read numerous reviews before purchasing this book and most said it was 'thrilling' and 'exciting'. It is a very good book and I enjoyed it very much, but it is not thrilling. It keeps your attention and is paced perfectly. It keeps moving and you want to find out what the big mystery is, but if you are looking for a 'fast paced, thrill-ride' this is not it. That said, I loved the book, I just wanted to put this out there for those that may be swayed by the misleading reviews. Excellent book, certainly was surprising and very well written.

When he plays a voicemail that his buddy recently sent him of he and Chris Farley it truly choked me up. I don't care what the tabloids say, he seems like a decent dude to me and he makes me laugh non stop. Would love to see/hear many more books from him. I really could listen to him for hours upon hours, he's awesome at performing audio.

In the most extraordinary journey Ann Rule has ever undertaken, America's master of true crime has spent more than two decades researching the story of the Green River Killer, who murdered more than 49 young women. Green River, Running Red is a harrowing account of a modern monster, a killer who walked among us undetected. It is also the story of his quarry -- of who these young women were and who they might have become.

Most of the book is dedicated to describing the victim's and their lives. It really doesn't get into who the GRK is until the last few chapters and then it kind of rushes through who he is and the trial. Spends so much more time on who the victim's are that it becomes tedious to the point of losing interest. Well written, but drones on a bit much for me.

Blood from the epic battle stains the ancient stone, shed from both the living and the dead. The massive castle walls provide a period of respite from the unending terror, and the group can finally honor the fallen. As Kurt and his family count the cost of securing their new sanctuary, new friends have joined the fray. Only by pulling together can they hope to have any kind of future in the apocalyptic world.

The narrator has changed, but he is a fantastic replacement. I actually much prefer the new narrator to the old one. The thrill ride continues and does not fail to stop. I find myself caring about this family as if I know them and I can't wait each time a new book in the series comes out so I can continue to follow their (unfortunate apocalyptic) adventure. I have read books upon books upon books about zombies/end of the world genre and this is, by far, one of the best (series).

I am very picky about my cozy/british mysteries. I am a huge fan of Agatha Christie, Rex Stout (not british) and Ngaio Marsh. It is always a pain trying to find something that strikes my interest; after reading some reviews of this book I decided to take a chance. I am thrilled that I did. It is a slow burn that takes a bit to get into, but it is well worth it. The writing is of great quality and the storytelling is top notch. The narrator has a lovely voice, but I see she is not used again. A bit disappointing, but I am still going to continue with the series because it is that good. Finally I am excited about another author and series!

The best part about a book, is that moment you can put it down, and say at least that can't happen in real life, until now. The Uninvited will leave you checking your doors, locking your windows and skipping the weekend camping trip. Meet the stranger, a killer who is unbiased about who it chooses to be the victim, and never tires of the killing. If Dexter and Leatherface had a baby, The Uninvited would be their offspring.

The story is fun and gory, but the narrator takes a bit to get used to. He isn't terrible, there is just something about his cadence or the tone of his voice that doesn't work for me. I can't quite put my finger on it. Don't pass up a good read due to the narration; check it out on ebook or paperback edition. Worth it.

Something strange is happening at the Orsk furniture superstore in Cleveland. Every morning, employees arrive to find broken Kjerring wardrobes, shattered Brooka glassware, and vandalized Liripip sofa beds - clearly someone, or something, is up to no good. To unravel the mystery, five young employees volunteer for a long dusk-till-dawn shift and encounter horrors that defy imagination.

I am kind of indifferent to this story. It was fine to pass the time and was not awful, but it was nothing to write home about. The book was like a short story drawn out to be a full story, but beyond that it was fine writing and just there. I do not know how to explain it other than to say I listened to it and it was there.

A legendary comedic second banana to a litany of major stars, Curtis is forever cemented in the public imagination as Booger from Revenge of the Nerds. A classically trained actor, Curtis began his incredible 40-year career onstage but progressed rapidly to film and television. He was typecast early, and it proved to be the best thing that could have happened. But there's more to Curtis' story than that.

What a surprisingly charming, warm, funny, enlightening, honest and interesting book! Curtis Armstrong has made me a true fan of him as a human being. I used to cringe when I would see him on a show because I always saw him as that disgusting booger character. After reading this I discovered my own prejudices of an actor that did not deserve it. He seems to be a kind and intelligent person with depth of real character. I actually teared up when he spoke about the good people on the show Supernatural and his unfortunate "outsider" feeling in a place with people that were truly welcoming of him. If you are hesitant (as I was) to purchase this book, please, take a chance. This will not disappoint!

From New York Times best-selling author Kathy Griffin, an A-Z compendium of the celebrities she's met over the years and the jaw-dropping, charming, and sometimes bizarre anecdotes only she can tell about them. Starting with Woody Allen and making pit stops with Demi Lovato, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Donald Trump, Kathy Griffin finally lifts the veil on her never-before-told run-ins with the famous and the infamous.
