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 […]

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 […]

Hallowed by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Re-Read Review

Hallowed by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Re-Read Review

MY THOUGHTS Hallowed, the second book in the Unearthly series picks up right after the first book, Unearthly end.  I was really surprised (in a good way) that I really loved this book.  Okay, so there IS a sort of love triangle BUT I love how Clara was NOT professing her   So yes, I really loved that Clara was acting like a normal teenager in a sense that she was rebelling her purpose. In this book, we get to know the major characters more: Tucker, Wendy, Christian, Jeffrey and even Samjeeza.  There are also secrets that are revealed (shocking ones but […]

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Re-Read Review

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Re-Read Review

MY THOUGHTS I read Unearthly last year but did not get a chance to do a full review.  I re-listened to the audiobook on Scribd (love this subscription, BTW) and fell in love with the story again.  Initially, I was not expecting to like the story.  I had already read a couple of “angels” books (read Fallen by Lauren Kate and Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins) and I was not into it.  With those two books in mind, I was pretty apprehensive with Unearthly.  Plus, the washed out cover didn’t really capture my interest but since I run out of reading material, I decided to […]

Fairest by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Fairest by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Let me just tell you that when I read Cinder, I hated Levana on sight (when I read her in the first book Cinder, I mean)!  She really felt like some weird, ugly crypt keeper-like Lunar with the veil concealing her face from the public, and even from us, the readers. So, when I heard that she was going to have her own story, I was excited!  This novella would be the answer to all the questions that had been on my mind.  Like:  What’s with the f-ing veil? or Why do you insist on marrying Prince Kai […]

One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost | Audiobook Review

One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Ello, Kitten!” To satiate my Cat and Bones obsession (healthy, I might add), I immediately got ahold of the second book in The Night Huntress series, Second Grave to the Right and I was equally blown away.  Although not AS good as the first book Halfway to the Grave (HttG), this was still an amazing read. After that ending in HttG, with Cat leaving Bones to save his life, I was looking forward to the first scene where Bones and Cat would meet.  I was not disappointed.   Second Grave to the Right picks up about 5 years after […]

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 […]
