If you love your fairy tales hot, read In a Stranger’s Bed by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. This is a review for the Sophie Jordan novella, In a Stranger’s Bed, and not all the novellas in this book.   Holy hotness, people! I was super shocked with In a Stranger’s Bed! I knew this was going to be sexy but I DID NOT expect it to be THAT sexy! And I mean this in a good way! So, In a Stranger’s Bed is a retelling of Goldilocks and the Three […]

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS So The Lunar Chronicles has come to an end and I have bittersweet feelings about it.  I guess this just stems out of me not wanting this series to ever end!  I mean, there are still loose ends to tie! The moment I finished listening to this book, I had book hangover and I couldn’t wait to talk to someone about it.  Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone who read the book and hubby still hasn;t finished reading it.  Plus he is no fun with book discussions because he just grunts and says “ok” or “it’s good” so… Anyway, […]

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “I don’t know how to review this book at all!” I finished listening to Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge via audiobook a couple of months ago and my initial thought was:  “I don’t know what to say.”  I mean, at this point, I think I am in a love/hate relationship with the book for many, many reasons.  Crimson Bound is a standalone book and is also a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.  It is not in any way connected or a companion novel to Cruel Beauty but it has the same darkness and themes.  I admit that […]

Cress by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Cress by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Before starting my review, I would like to apologize to my readers for posting a blank post for this review a few weeks back.  With my pending vacation (I am still on said vacay), I was unaware that I set this review to post when I haven’t even written it!  So, please pardon my flightiness! My Thoughts Warning: This review may contain spoilers Since I read Scarlet, I have been super excited to read Cress because let’s face it, Thorn is a very interesting character!  In fact, I was hoping that Thorn would be the hero in this book.  I was not […]

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Unique.  I couldn’t put it down! A must read!” Scarlet is the second book in the Lunar Chronicles series and it is my favorite (I’ve also read Cress) so far!  I absolutely love this retelling of Little Red Riding Hood!  Ms. Meyer has a way of merging both stories – Cinder ( a retelling of Cinderella)  and Scarlet.  It is seamlessly done and very well written. Scarlet focuses on the story of  Scarlet Benoit (Little Red Riding Hood) and Wolf in relation to the whole series.  Scarlet’s grandmother, Michelle Benoit an Imperial Pilot (or something) has gone missing […]

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Very dark and different” I admit that I had never heard of this book before but when it was recommended at audible as something that I might like, I decided to buy it.  Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast.  I am a fan of Disney’s version and I love Belle but this book is not it.  It is a classic retelling set in a different place interspersed with Greek mythology (Cupid and Psyche’s story). The place, Arcadia, is cursed, brought about by the selfish prince’s bargain with the Kindly Ones.  Arcadia […]
