Beg For Mercy

Megan Flynn thought she was falling in love. Cole Williams wasn't just handsome and passionate, he was one of the good guys. Or so she thought, until he arrested her brother-the only family she has left-for a murder she knows he couldn't have possibly committed. Now, with her heart broken and her brother's life hanging in the balance, Megan will risk everything to prove his innocence. Even if that means throwing herself into the path of a sadistic killer with a hauntingly familiar MO.

Seattle Detective Cole Williams had given up on making Megan see reason where her brother is concerned. But when she insinuates herself into the most shockingly brutal case Cole has ever worked, he can't stand idly by. Plunged into a secret world where the city's elite indulge their darkest desires, Cole will do whatever it takes to bring down a madman who has made Megan his most coveted prey.

I'm listening to:

TITLE: Looking for Alaska
AUTHOR: John Green
NARRATOR: Jeff Woodman
PUBLISHER: Brilliance Audio, Inc.
PUBLICATION DATE: October 21, 2008
FORMAT: Unabridged audiobook
LENGTH: 7 hrs, 11 mins
GENRE: Young Adult, Realistic Fiction
Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words - and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the "Great Perhaps." Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young. Clever, funny, screwed-up, and dead sexy, Alaska will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.

Looking for Alaska brilliantly chronicles the indelible impact one life can have on another. A stunning debut, it marks John Green's arrival as an important new voice in contemporary fiction.

I just finished:

TITLE: Reached
SERIES: Matched, Book #3
AUTHOR: Ally Condie
PUBLISHER: Listening Library
PUBLICATION DATE: November 13, 2012
FORMAT: Unabridged audiobook
LENGTH: 13 hrs, 15 mins
GENRE: Young Adult, Science Fiction/Dystopia
ISBN: 9781611761023
After leaving Society and desperately searching for the Rising - and each other - Cassia and Ky have found what they were looking for, but at the cost of losing each other yet again: Cassia has been assigned to work for the Rising from within Society, while Ky has been stationed outside its borders. But nothing is as predicted, and all too soon the veil lifts and things shift once again.

In this gripping conclusion to the number-one New York Times-best-selling Matched Trilogy, Cassia will reconcile the difficulties of challenging a life too confining, seeking a freedom she never dreamed possible, and honoring a love she cannot live without.

What are you reading? Have you read any of these books and, if so, what did you think? Please let me know in the comments and, if you are also participating in this meme, leave me a link to your blog post so that I can stop by!


  1. I hope Reached ended on a good note. I've debated continuing w/ that series, I hate starting a series and not finishing but I've heard mixed things about books two and three.

    1. For me, Reached was the weakest of the three and the series declined with each book. I had such high hopes, because I absolutely loved Reached! I know what you mean about finishing a series. My goal this year is to finish some of the series that I've started during the past few years!

    2. Sorry, I meant that I absolutely loved MATCHED (the first one).

  2. Beg for Mercy looks good. Happy Reading!
