Renegade by Debra Driza | Audiobook Review

Renegade by Debra Driza | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Mila started out to be someone who was TSTL but all that changed halfway through the book… I shouldn’t love this.. but I do!”   That was my post when I finished reading Renegade.  This is the second book in the Mila 2.0 series written by Debra Driza about a female android/military weapon who is so advanced that she feels and acts human.  When I read Mila 2.0, I was blown away by the uniqueness of the story and the female bad-assery but I was a little bit disappointed by Renegade…initially.  When I say initially, I mean that I really didn’t like Mila […]

A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd | Book Review

A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS “A fantastic end to an awesome series” A Cold Legacy is the last book (sigh* and sad face) in The Madman’s Daughter series by Megan Shepherd and is a classic retelling of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (I have to type is like that because it does not sound as good if written the other way LOL). I have a lot of bitter-sweet memories about this book.  I HATE saying goodbye to all the interesting and unique characters from the series.  I also feel like I grew with these characters; like I really invested a lot of my time on them […]

My Fair Mistress by Tracy Anne Warren | Re-read Book Review

My Fair Mistress by Tracy Anne Warren | Re-read Book Review

MY THOUGHTS TIMES READ I have read this multiple times in the last 6 years. WHEN I FIRST READ I read this in paperback (I have a copy back in the Philippines) around 2008 or 2009. ORIGINAL REVIEW Read my first review here (this is also a re-read review) WHAT I REMEMBER I remember a lady bargaining her virtue to the financier Rafe Pendragon and the story was (and still is) sizzling.  I have also read multiple books by Tracy Anne Warren that mention Rafe Pendragon as the investor that helped a few heroes in Warren’s other books become rich (see Wicked Delights […]

Legend by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

Legend by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “A surprising read!” I really didn’t have any expectations when I started reading this book.  In fact, I thought it was going to be another Divergent/Hunger Games dystopia book and thought it would be too cookie-cutter for my taste.  BUT I was really surprised that I enjoyed it!  Sure, there were a few flaws that made me rate it 4 stars but….. Day! Legend is really full of kickass, badass, fighter FEMALES!  In this book alone, 3 were prominent fighters.  Not to mention that the heroine, June IS a freaking child fighting prodigy!  At this point, Legend diverted from […]

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner | Book Review

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner | Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. MY THOUGHTS “Hands down, one of the best books I’ve read this year!” This Shattered World is another story that blew me away!  I really LOVED reading about Captain Lee Chase and Avon rebel Flynn Cormac!  Plus, imagine that – a kick ass female captain! Captain Lee Chase has been in the planet Avon for a while.  She has not been affected by the fury that seems to take […]

Boundless by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Review

Boundless by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS The last book in the Unearthly trilogy by Cynthia Hand, Boundless is supposed to answer all the questions that we may have in the last 2 books (and even the novella, Radiant).  Unfortunately, it brings about more questions. At this point, I am not sure if I should give this book 3 hearts or 4.  No, don’t get me wrong but I really enjoyed this book and it was written very well by Miss Hand BUT I simply do not like the outcome.  No, more like, NOT SATISFIED with the outcome of the story. What I liked: I […]

Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost | Audiobook Review

Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “You’re not a woman, you’re the bleedin’ Grim Reaper with red hair!” When I borrowed Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost from the library a few weeks ago, I did not have any expectations whatsoever.  I did not read any reviews for this book nor did someone recommend it to me. I probably saw this somewhere on my Facebook wall and decided to read it over my birthday week.  What I got when I listened to the audiobook version was 100% awesomeness and badassery from our heroine Cat Crawfield, a half-breed.  This was one of the audiobooks where […]

Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover by Sarah MacLean | Re-read Audiobook Review

Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover by Sarah MacLean | Re-read Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS TIMES READ This is my second read, first via audiobook. WHEN I FIRST READ I read this book last year on my vacay and I liked it.  A little bit underwhelmed by Chase’s story, though. ORIGINAL REVIEW Reviewed it on my blog here. WHAT I REMEMBER Chase is a FEMALE!  Well, that is not a secret anymore but I really loved the surprise of having the head of the club as female. WHY I WANTED TO RE-READ I wanted to see if I would feel differently about Chase/Georgina’s story if I listened to it via audiobook. HOW I FELT AFTER […]
