A Life Intercepted
Author
Charles Martin
Review
What a great read!!! I listened to the playaway, which was great because the story was so wonderful that I didn't want to stop listening. Matthew "The Rocket" Rising a famous top pick football player just got out on parole after serving a twelve year sentence for a crime that he did not commit. All he wants to do is find the most important thing to him, his wife Audrey who he hasn't heard from since that awful day twelve years ago. Does he find her, will she believe that he didn't do the crime that he was accused of and will the town people accept him back into the community, will he ever play football again. This is an awesome read for anyone. What a well written story.

This book is so different from anything I usually read but the story is so vivid and you sympathize with the characters. It is just a great story about 3 people who come together in troubling times.

An Abundance of Katherines
Author
John Green
Review
Like all of his books, it is just a fast read that really makes you connect with the characters. I wish it wasn't so similar to Paper Towns in some ways but I still really enjoyed it. I would recommend it to all John Green fans.

The Discovery of Witches

Review
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It had adventure and magic but it also was written in a way that I, an older adult, can enjoy. I really loved the characters and the love that blossums between all of them.

Yes Please
Author
Amy Poehler
Review
Yes Please is the funny, sweet, autobiographical book from first time author SNL alum Amy Poehler. I picked up the book as a Playaway for a recent trip. On the audiobook, Amy reads most of the book, but she also has guests which include Kathleen Turner, Patrick Stewart, Seth Meyers, and her parents. As a result, audio is better than just reading the book.

I admit to getting a little lost when she discussed some of her best SNL bits and her 6 years starring in Parks and Recreation on NBC as I wasn't a big fan of either show.

Amy encourages listeners to treat jobs as bad boyfriends who will quickly leave you for another. However, time spent on your passion and creativity will always be rewarding and worth the time invested.

I read this in one sitting. Well written. There is a shooting at a High School. One family's son is missing. The press and police are acting like he is involved in the shooting. How this changes everything for the boys family.
Kept me reading and had some powerful messages to the way we profile. Very moving
