Audiobook listen!
Tomorrow, When the War Began - John Marsden

I started listening to this after I finished my relisten of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I have a friend who recommended it to me ages ago!

 

Wow! It is really riveting. I'm not quite to the halfway point, but I'm totally engaged. I'm trying to decide if I am going to listen to them all, or if I want them for my personal library in paperback. They are available used on amazon & I think my son would like them if I could get him to give them a try!

Princess in Pink
Princess in Pink - Meg Cabot

This was a good book. There were parts that drove me nuts but I did enjoy this book. I also love the humor that I get out of these books. I can't wait to read the next!

What To Do With a Bad Boy (The McCauley Brothers #4)
What to Do with a Bad Boy - Marie Harte

For me, this was, hands down, the best book of the series!! I loved Del and Mike as characters both together and apart. Del didn't let Colin get away with anything, nor did she allow his dad Mike to get away with anything either! I loved watching their love for one another bloom and seeing how Mike handled it considering the loss of his wife in childbirth. Del's family was amazingly funny as well and though this story had it's ups and downs, it did show that these were flawed characters trying to do the best they could. Overall, I would recommend the series, but some were better than others.

Ruining Mr. Perfect (The McCauley Brothers #3)
Ruining Mr. Perfect - Marie Harte

I wasn't that impressed with this installment. To me, it didn't make sense to put the two cerebral types together. I couldn't see what made them spark! Vanessa has had an aloof thing going for the entire series and falling in love didn't soften it like it should have! Cameron was also a bit of a drama prince, and wound up really hurting Vanessa in the process! Not to mention, they were pretty stupid in thinking that only the Pill would protect them from pregnancy! It was just asking for trouble when I read that! All in all, this was the weak link in the series for me.

It Happened at the Fair (It Happened at the Fair #1)
It Happened at the Fair - Deeanne Gist

I wasn't that impressed with this story. While it seemed historically accurate, the pictures inserted into the body of work was distracting. Another major distraction was that several words throughout the book were italicized and had vowels missing. It could have been a device to illustrate how the Hero had lost his hearing, but to me it was quite bothersome! I also had a hard time connecting to the characters, though I was sympathetic to their plights. Their families were also difficult to believe, as if they were caricatures of the people they were supposed to represent. All in all, for me, it was a disappointing and frustrating read, especially after reading the prologue, since I had hoped we were getting the continuation of that story.
