A revolution that missed the mark! The Book of Ivy/TheRevolution of Ivy by Amy Engle | Audiobook Review

A revolution that missed the mark! The Book of Ivy/TheRevolution of Ivy by Amy Engle | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. This review is going to be a twofer because the second book doesn’t warrant its own review, and I will tell you why. Last year, I read this little book called The Book of Ivy and I loved it!  It was a sleeper dystopian that got under my skin before I even knew what was what!  It was surprising, to say the least, because this book would not have made it to my reading list if 1) I didn’t like the title, and 2) it wasn’t […]

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor | Audiobook Review

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I can’t believe that I am waaaaay behind on this series!  I have seen these around the blogosphere but I thought it wasn’t my thing.  I mean – angels, paranormal?  I’m not really a fan of those themes.  Luckily, I sort of ran out of books to listen (le gasp!) and I was browsing the online library catalog (like you do) and I decided to borrow this.  My was I BLOWN away! Did you say it was AMAZING? I mean, The Daughter of Smoke […]

The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey | Audiobook Review

The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. Ok, I admit it, I have never heard of The Fifth Wave until I saw the trailer a couple of months ago.  If you know me, you would know that I am so into aliens.  In fact, one of my favorite shows is Ancient Aliens, but I digress.  Let’s just say that I am very fascinated by aliens. What is it about? The Fifth Wave is about an alien attack on Earth.  The attacks come in waves; the first wave: total blackout; […]

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Book & Audiobook Review

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Book & Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. I have to really honest about this book, Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff and admit that it took me a while to finish reading it.  And as much as I loved it, and was blown away by it, I still had a hard time getting into the book.  In fact, this is the first book that I read in this format because I thought, hey, I wouldn’t be interested in reading a book in email or chat form. What makes the book […]

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

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, […]

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley | Audiobook Review

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Magonia is the debut book written by Maria Dahvana Headley and starts a new fantasy series of birdlike beings living in the clouds, in a world called Magonia.  The heroine, Aza Ray has a disease.  A rare disease that only she has.  A disease that has kept her from breathing normally.  Until her 16th birthday… I was intrigued by this story when I first heard about it.  The book cover is also eye-catching so I decided to listen to it via audiobook.  I love that it is read by two narrators, the female reads Aza Ray’s part and […]

When a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare | Book Review + Giveaway

Reboot by Amy Tintera | Audiobook Review

Reboot by Amy Tintera | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Reboot – a different kind of zombie!” While I was browsing for books to read, I came across Reboot by Amy Tintera.  Since I’m not that active in the YA book community, I hadn’t heard of anything about this book.  So I came into this book knowing nothing about it, apart from the blurb. I was blown away by this book.  It’s because I personally haven’t read anything like this before.  Reboot is a YA dystopian novel about people dying and then coming back to life (rebooting) as super humans.  These people, they call them Reboots, are stronger, […]
