A nice story by Wendy Holden. I really like the narrator, however I don't think her voice is suited to this book. Her voices seem a lot older than the intended age of the characters, and many seem annoying, and the male voices are cringeworthy. But I still really like her voice, I believe she would be better used elsewhere.

Anna Kendrick's autobiographical collection of essays amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, from her middle-class upbringing in New England to the blockbuster movies that have made her one of Hollywood's most popular actresses today. Expanding upon the witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known, Anna Kendrick's essays offer her one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she's experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture.

I'm a little bit in love with Anna Kendrick (but don't tell her that)

This is by far the best audiobook I have experienced so far. Acerbic wit, endearing charm and an exceptional delivery, I loved every moment and I hope more will follow.

A great theme, the second book from the series that I have read and enjoyed. I have the others already on my wish list!

Sometimes opposites don't just attract--they catch fire and burn the city down. Is it true that you can't always get what you want? Shaw Landon is a good girl from a nice family. She knows what she should want: top grades and then a steady job and, someday, a nice guy to take home to her parents. She also knows what she shouldn't want…but it's hard to stay away from a guy like Rule.

Not a very interesting story and the performances were a little dreary and monotonous. Not for me.

I really had high hopes for this book after so enjoying the first. However disappointment ensued after realising that this is an almost replica of the first book; the focus relationship is nearly identical along with the sequence of events. The sex scenes are superfluous and awkward, and I could not get to grips with the main character referring to her lady part as a 'doo dah' (a term normally reserved for the package your pet dog deposits while out on a walk).
The performance is wonderful and I really enjoy Susannah's voice (maybe not so much whilst uttering the term doo dah!) but I am left wondering I want to continue with this series. *spoiler alert* Will they all be the same formulaic 'boy meets girl, girl needs help, boy protects girl from bad guys, freakishly hot guy falls for low self esteem girl and pursues in controlling manner'.
