We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so, we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, a man-made virus taking over bodies and minds, filling them with one unstoppable command...FEED.

I really enjoy the Newsflesh series. I’m a zombie book lover and enjoy this series initially because of this. I stay for all of the additional story lines because the author has created a rich world with characters that are intriguing and well rounded. I well understand why this series has won awards. Those who like this unusual genre will be drawn in by this new refreshing look.

When you discover the world is a computer program, and you figure out that by altering the code you can time travel and perform acts that seem like magic, what can possibly go wrong? Pretty much everything. Just ask Brit, who has jumped around in time with such abandon that she has to coexist with multiple versions of herself. Now, Brit the Elder finds that her memories don't match Brit the Younger's.

I love Scott Meyer’s Magic series. It is so much fun. The characters are quirky. I love when the nerds get together and do interesting things. I like the alternative universe and the take on magic/life being part of the bigger picture of the book. It does leave a few holes but I’m willing to suspend my disbelief for some fun, laughter and the overall story.

Tornadoes, cyclones, tsunamis… Weather can be deadly – especially when it strikes without warning. Millions of Americans could soon find themselves at the mercy of violent weather if the public data behind lifesaving storm alerts gets privatized for personal gain. In his first Audible Original feature, New York Times best-selling author and journalist Michael Lewis delivers hard-hitting research on not-so-random weather data – and how Washington plans to release it.

I wanted to like this it started out as informational but then slipped into PC take on it all. I hate getting taken by a book that does that. Don’t sell me a take on things it makes me doubt the book overall. If you have a leaning that is PC be honest and up front. This one wasn’t.

Interesting take on zombies. I like the various characters and shifting between stories. I like that there were good guys who continue to try and do the right thing. This one was along the line of TWD in my opinion. It has zombies, good guys and bad guys. Pretty typical for the genre. The series skirts saying this is a biblical type issue but alludes to it.

Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack...and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she'd learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member - and as his mate.

I love the Mercy Thompson book series. That lead me to the Alpha & Omega series. This series has everything that draws me in. A great heroine who is both strong but needs help. A strong male lead that has multiple facets. A bit of comedy that makes me laugh out loud from time to time. A great world of paranormal. And overall good story telling. I love this just as much as the Mercy series.

Charles's reputation makes him the prime suspect, and the penalty for the crime is execution. Now Anna and Charles must combine their talents to hunt down the real killer - or Charles will take the fall.

For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles' role as his father's enforcer. This time their trip to Arizona is purely personal, as Charles plans to buy Anna a horse for her birthday. Or at least it starts out that way....

Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles. Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves - all of them were.
