Dragonmark by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Dragonmark by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Holter Graham narrates a lot of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s books. Most recently before picking this up, I had re-listened to one of the books from her The League series so had some time where we were still learning the characters, and I was struggling to not associate his voice with characters in the other books. Once I overcame that though, I very quickly was carried away and through the story.

Lirael by Garth Nix

Lirael by Garth Nix

Lirael was honestly quite hard to get through. I started reading the ebook from my library, then later, because it was taking me so long to read and I’d already renewed it twice, I switched over to the audiobook which I got from Scribd. This made it a little easier, as I then listened on my car rides to and from work.

Marley and Me by John Grogan

Marley and Me by John Grogan

I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this book. It had sat on a book shelf for years. Moved with me from my childhood home to the home I now share with my husband. We’ve owned dogs, and currently have a 1-year-old Golden Retriever who we brought home when he was almost 9 weeks old.

Island of Glass by Nora Roberts

Island of Glass by Nora Roberts

This is the final book of the Guardians trilogy, and in usual Nora Roberts fashion, there is a romance interwoven into the story. The romance focused on in this story is between Riley, who is a werewolf, and Doyle, who will live forever because of a curse.

Vendetta in Death by J.D. Robb

Vendetta in Death by J.D. Robb

Lady Justice has a thing against men. Specifically she seems to be going for men who have cheated on their spouse, raped women, or have been abusive to their spouse. She castrates them and leaves their bodies naked outside their home. For the police, she leaves a poem about the man and why he had to die.

Stardust by Neil Gaiman

Stardust by Neil Gaiman

It’s always nice listening to stories being told by the author. Stardust is narrated by Neil Gaiman. It was more like being told a bedtime story by my parents when I was younger than the usual reading of a book we’ve come to expect.

The Reach Between Worlds by Cameron M. Hayden

The Reach Between Worlds by Cameron M. Hayden

The story was somewhat interesting. There are a few times Taro almost gets caught, and he gets lucky just squeaking by. There is also a test the students must pass. This test could mean their lives though. They all must work as a team, or they all fail. On this test, things get dicey, as they fight for their lives with something making them go mad.
