Harriet Manners knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear, a "jiffy" lasts 1/100th of a second, and the average person laughs 15 times per day. She knows that bats always turn left when exiting a cave and that peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite. But she doesn't know why nobody at school seems to like her. So when Harriet is spotted by a top model agent, she grabs the chance to reinvent herself. Even if it means stealing her best friend's dream, incurring the wrath of her arch enemy Alexa, and repeatedly humiliating herself in front of impossibly handsome model Nick.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and I was a bit sceptical about it. Didn't know if it would be too childish, but it was a great present! I love it and have bought the whole series.
I am 17 so I didn't know if it would be to young for me, but they are very well written and the plot is always funny and based on things that could happen to any teenager and a great pick you up. Always a good laugh, all the characters you can relate to in a way (the nutty dad, the boy you wish was yours, the best friend, the bully who hates you for no reason...).
My brother who is10 also loves them I recommend it to anyone from that age up (maybe not for teenage boys though - although saying that it did make my parents chuckle when they listened to them in the car with me!!).
Christmas is near, so I would definitely recommend it as a gift to a loved one to receive on Xmas 2015.

It all starts with a girl.... (Because yes, there's always a girl.) Jason Priestley (not that one) has just seen her. They shared an incredible, brief, fleeting moment of deep possibility, somewhere halfway down Charlotte Street. And then, just like that, she was gone - accidentally leaving him holding her old-fashioned, disposable camera, chock-full of undeveloped photos.... And now Jason - ex-teacher, ex-boyfriend, part-time writer and reluctant hero - faces a dilemma: Should he try and track The Girl down? What if she's The One?

It was a very good listen. I love Danny Wallace, i think he is a great writer and hilarious.
for me the only thing that could make it 5 stars was if it was Danny reading the book himself that always makes the books just that much better.
But in the all it was a fantastic purchase

It was great, fantastic
I loved it a great story, great narration ( It was perfect I like it when the different characters have different voices which is the case for this book.)
It was fantastic after the 2nd book I was sure the couldn't get better but somehow it has. What a brilliant ending to the best trilogy ever written.
Hope my review helps you with your choice.

Sephy is a Cross – a member of the dark-skinned ruling class. Callum is a nought – a ‘colourless’ member of the underclass who were once slaves to the Crosses. The two have been friends since early childhood. But that’s as far as it can go. Until the first steps are taken towards more social equality and a limited number of Noughts are allowed into Cross schools

The Once And Future King is a very interesting story, I would suggest listening to it in little stages so you can come back for more of it later - there is a lot of information to take in! The Once and Future King is a story set in the past, but the story is made up. The tutor is a wizard... which is lots of fun.

I really enjoyed The Magic Tree House collection, great fun even though they are for younger children - I think they are brilliant. These books are fun and full of as much adventure as two young children can have.

My little brother loves this collection, so I would really recommend them for young kids (but also enjoyable for their older sisters!) Jodie age 14

The St Clare series are really great. They are interesting and fun. During the series, Isabelle and Pat grow up because at first they were horrible and vain but at the end they are lovely caring girls and have loads of friends like Claudine, Carlotta...

This book is great for all ages - even my brothers like it, even though they are very boisterous! Jodie age 14

I found this story a bit dull and slow moving, there were lots of details and not much action. For me, my ideal story is a bit faster moving with more action. I also found the narrators voice a bit dull - sorry! Jodie age 14
