A Misuse of Time: Broken Wand Academy, Episode 4 (YA AUDIO)

 This series is one that will grab you and not let go until it is over.  In this book Meena shows her strength in all she does.  She goes back to her dad through Braden's portal but gets yanked to another place before she gets to hear the whole story of her mom's and her past.  She soon finds herself fleeing the Broken Wand academy for the Gladwell academy with a wolf shifter she seems to be able to talk to through her mom's family connection so she thinks.  

This is another wonderful book in the Broken Wand Academy series.  I have had so much fun listening to these stories and am hoping there is more to come.  The characters have grabbed my heart and I am not ready to leave them yet.  I also can not say enough about narrator Nara Naranjit and how wonderful the audios have been.  This book (and series) is wonderful and I hope you all like it as much as I do.

City of Hooks and Scars (City of Villains, Book 2) (YA)

 Mary Elizabeth is still investigating the disappearance of her friends and what exactly is going on in her city all the while battling the voice in her head.  Her best friends and boy friend disappeared after the battle of Miracle Lake to plot their next move, but Mary decided not to go with them and has now changed her mind and wants to be be with them however, she can't quite figure out where they are or how to get there.  Meanwhile kids from all over the Scar are disappearing and her villainous friends are being blamed for it all.  

I love this book, isn't there always a like devilish voice inside of us wanting us to do the thing we wish we could do if we only knew we could get away with it.  That is Mary's voice and it keeps things exciting especially every time the Red Queen shows up, off with their heads!  This book has a lot of action but even more suspense and I can not wait to see what happens next.

Academy of Shifters: Witches and Wolves (Book 6) (YA AUDIO)

 Remi has to go back to place that has brought her so much pain.  But when she meets Meena things start to come together in the story.  This is a story of pulling everything together before the final book, however since I started in the middle to end of the series it has answered a lot of questions for me, and I enjoyed it a lot.  I and being pulled as the end comes near I can't wait for the next book but don't want they story to end either. 

Brimstone: Mech Force, Book 2 (ADULT AUDIO)

 Captured by his, well Nate primes, best friend looking for information to bring down the government.  At the same time Broken Arrow is a mess thinking the worst, and the only thing they can do is find a old warrior that can explain or maybe why even help find Nate so they can rescue him and finally get the whole truth.

This is a great action packed book full of suspense and twists.  The characters are awesome as is the story-line.  The audio was made that much better by the wonderful voice of James Patrick Cronin who did the narration of the audiobook.  He was able to take what the author wonderfully wrote and transfer it to a awesome listening experience.  I loved it a lot and can't wait for more.  I really hope you will love it too.

Answers in the Pages (MG)

 When Donovan leaves his copy of the Adventures, a class reading assignment, on the kitchen counter he never thought what would happen next would ever happen.  His mom reads the beginning and the end of the book, it is a paragraph found at the end that has Donovan's mom in the principals office, and will have the school and community in a uproar before it is all over.

This was a awesome book and came in such a timely period when book bannings are at there highest numbers ever.  This book should be on every librarians (school and public) to be read list. I am sure I will personally be buying copies to hand out.  The character are wonderful and the whole book is wonderfully thought out.  I loved this book and hope you all do too.
