Perhaps there isn't much magic in everyday life, but something magical can happen when you read a good book.
If you haven't yet discovered Laini Taylor, then you must immediately purchase one of her books. I started off by downloading "Daughter of Smoke and Bone", which is the first book in a trilogy and I was hooked. The lush language, the unique world building will enchant you. In a modern world where readers (and listeners) have been swamped and bored to tears by the "same ol', same ol'" vampire centred story (no matter how many spins of the theme there are), Laini's worlds are a breath of fresh air. Oh, but what air it is - absolutely captivating, gorgeous and it will leave you wishing for more. It is like rich and luscious cup of hot chocolate, but without the guilt.
"Lips touch three times" consists of three separate stories all about the mystery of love and the power of a kiss. But do not be put off - there is nothing cheesy or lame about these stories. Laini Taylor puts a spin on Irish, Hindu, and Zoroastrian folklore and with the mastery of her language creates something to behold.
An absolute gem not only for young adults, but for the not so young too. Listen to these stories and there will be a bit more magic in your life.
All the books from the "Young Bond" series have been really enjoyable! I've had so much fun listening to them, despite the fact that I am well out of the target age group. Yet, these books seem to have something for all ages, so no matter how old you are, give them a try and you won't be disappointed. Plenty of action, turns and twists in the story. I hope there will be at least several more in this series, because they are well worth a listen.
Very enjoyable and fun to listen to. The story is engaging and makes you want to listen right until the end. Packed with adventure and nail-biting moments. I will definitely be buying the next in the series!
