13th Hour

13th Hour by Richard Doetssch, read by Dennis Boutsikaris
Unabridged on 10 CDs

A very interesting and unusual concept for a book and a very good murder mystery. In the first hour, Nick Quinn's wife is murdered and he is arrested. A stranger gives him a watch and told he has 13 hours to discover his wife's murderer and to stop him. For the next 13 hours, Nick goes one hour forward and two hours back. I thought the story would be confusing, but it was awesome!

Harry Potter #8

I have to admit, I cried a little at the end of this movie. I know it had to come to an end, but I will miss this. It was sad for me when I read the last book, but this last movie really was the end of this awesome, magical adventure.

Ashes, Ashes

Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari

Unabridged audio, MP3 download

I hate downloads!!

That being said, I really enjoyed this book. The download was free from Sync Audiobook Community as part of a summer young adult and classic audiobook series. A plague has killed most of the population and Lucy is hiding out in Central Park, living on her own and getting by with a survival handbook and her father's old hunting knife. A pack of dogs drive her out hiding and she meets Aden who rescues her. The story also includes Aden's jealous girlfriend and a mad scientist who wants all of Lucy's blood. A good action packed YA sci-fi romance. It was worth the listen.
