Into the Yellow Zone: A POST APOCALYPTIC NOVEL (Into the Outside Book 2) (YA)

Isabelle and her group is still traveling on their way, meanwhile her bother Luke is trying to find a way out of his lock-down so he can get back to finding her and getting her the medicine her thinks Isabelle needs.  Will they ever catch up to each other?
This has been such a awesome series so far, the action level is still high and the suspense is thick.  The characters are wonderful and they all work so well with each other.  The author along with the narrator paint the scene for the reader/listener so well you fell like you are there with Luke and Isabelle.  It is so real in the audio version  sometimes you think you actually hear birds. This is a really good series and not one that should be overlooked.

The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek (Adult)

This is a work of fiction however, a lot of the circumstances are real. The women of the pack horse librarians are very much real, there is a picture of them hanging in my library.  I always thought that picture was cool and dreamed of being able to do that, at least until I read this book, and maybe I don't want that job after all, I like snow days.  Kentucky blue bloods is also a very real thing, although before reading this book I never knew how bad they were treated, and that makes me sad.  So after knowing these things from a real Kentuckian,  I hope you love this story of Cussy Mary and her fellow pack horse librarians as much as I did.  Cussy Mary is such a wonderful, caring, and strong character, I can only hope to be 1/1000 as strong as she is, but I hope I treat my patrons with the same much caring and loving manner as she did.

Gluten Is My Bitch: Rants, Recipes, and Ridiculousness for the Gluten-Free (ADULT AUDIO)

This is the totally honest truth about how celiac will change your life and the challenges of eating gluten free will create.  The author provides alternative ways through these challenges and funny stories along the way.
This is a hilarious but brutally honest book I wish I had found when I was first diagnosed with celiac It would have helped to know I wasn't the only one, especially since all I was told was you can't have gluten anymore, that was it me and google against the world and this thing called celiac.  Books like this are awesome and needed, and I had the audio narrated by the author which usually is suspect but this one is awesome, funny, and chalked full of wonderful information.

Serpent's Fury: A Space Opera Noir Technothriller (The SynCorp Saga: Empire Earth Book 3) (ADULT)

Everyone is back and still fighting to regain the Corp from Cassandra, and yes to save Tony before Cassandra can put him through one of her monkey trials where we all know she will win and kill him.  The race is on. 
This has been an awesome trilogy action packed is a understatement, suspense and twists galore and they all fit into the story like a glove, everything works perfectly within the book.  I will  leave you to find out how the story itself works out, I am not a spoiler.  But you will not be disappointed but you know that if you have read the other two books already.

Black Scales Book I: The Dragons of Apenninus (YA AUDIO)

Icabus dreamed of dragons than his dreams turned dark and true.  His village was over run by these awful men and they were going to kill Icabus, so Icabus ran in to the woods the one place he was always forbidden to go.  He made it past what ever the evil thing  was and ended up in another land where he needed to find the dragons to save his village and world. 
This was a good book filled with action and suspense.  The only part I had trouble with was getting use to all the characters especially the ones with names that were so close to each other.  The audio narrated by the very talented Fred Wolinsky with his many voices for all the characters is well worth it.  Mr. Wolinsky can make you feel as though you have been transported right there fighting besides Icabus or the towns people, he really brings this book to life for the listener.

Dragon School: Episodes 11-15: Dragon School Omnibus, Book 3 (MG AUDIO)

Amel is back and determined to save the Dominar, the real Dominar, if she can get anyone to believe her that is.  But in the process it seems it is more important that Savette prove herself the true chosen one.  It is when Savette sends Amel on a mission to Prince Rakturan thing go bad and Amel becomes a slave to a princess who will make your eyes roll. 
This is another wonderful adventure to escape into, in a land far away.  Which by the way if you have the audio narrated by the wonderful Jigisha Patel this is so much easier to do as she paints some of the most wonderful pictures with her voice as she narrates these books.  These two, author and narrator, work so well together.  The book is non stop action and suspense it will have you up past your bedtime or taking the long way home from work depending on which format you have.  It is such a great series with such diversity I am glad to have fallen in love with it.
