"You can't touch me," I whisper. I'm lying, is what I don't tell him. He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him. But things happen when people touch me. Strange things. Bad things.

What disappointed you about Shatter Me?

As an adult who enjoys YA books, I was hoping for another great one in Shatter Me...however it has been so hard to get through. I'm not sure if it's the story itself, or maybe the narrator but I am regretting spending a credit on this book. To know that it is a series makes my head spin. How can anyone truly get into these books when there is more time spent talking about describing everything around and very little describing the story. To have the same line read over and over and over in the same tone and voice makes me want to turn it off. I'm sorry this is not a YA book that anyone should read unless you are truly a YA, and a YOUNG YA at that.

Has Shatter Me turned you off from other books in this genre?

This genre will continue to be one of my favorites, this series however will not make it any further in my collection

How could the performance have been better?

The tone was off throughout the entire book. The character always was portrayed horribly, not how I would have imagined the writer intended for her to come across.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

no, sorry

Where does Hidden rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Hidden was one of the better audio books I have gotten so far. The characters were well defined with the narrator and the feeling of the book was just like it was when I read the hard copy

Who was your favorite character and why?

Stevie Rae will always hold a special spot in my heart for her compassion
