Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “I can’t stop listening!” Clockwork Prince is the second book in the Infernal Devices series and continues right after Clockwork Angel ends.  This book is part of the series and cannot be read as a stand alone. The story picks up right after the battle at the Institute and Charlotte and the group are picking up the pieces.  At this point, the Enclave is involved and so is Consul Wayland.  He is now regretting his decision to appoint Charlotte as the head of the London Institute and Benedict Lightwood is pushing the Consul to remove Charlotte and appoint him […]

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare blew me away!  I had read The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones last year but I was let down after all the hype and I did not continue reading the series.  However, one of my co-workers told me that I would LOVE Clockwork Angel because it is not contemporary but historical.  When the opportunity came, I decided to get the audiobook instead. Clockwork Angel is the first book in the prequel series The Infernal Devices and introduces us to a few new characters and gives us a glimpse of characters appearing in City […]

A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts A Night to Surrender is the second book that I read from Tessa Dare.  I read Any Duchess Will Do (the 4th book in the series) first because I love to start reading a series out of order (insert sarcasm here).  This is also the first audiobook that I have listened to since last year’s audiobook debacle.  Why go back to audiobooks, you ask?  Well, I saw a Groupon for a free 2-month audiobook trial and well, tried it.  This is the first “purchase” I have with the system. A Night to Surrender is the first book in […]

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green | Audiobook Review

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Heart wrenching.  Lovely.  Okay” I have been dragging my feet literally when it came to reading this book.  See, I thought this book was going to be too overly sentimental.  Plus, I have never read any book by John Green before.  I also thought this was going to be like A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks.  I was right, in a way.  When I was able to purchase the audiobook (via an Amazon Local Promo) last week, I decided to listen.  Initially, I had thought I would be listening to the book over the course of a week […]

Divergent by Veronica Roth | Book Review

Divergent by Veronica Roth | Book Review

My Thoughts Divergent is different.  When I read it last year (yes, I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed it yet!), I was shocked, to say the least.  I mean, I haven’t read anything of the sort before.  And yes, I think Four is hot.  LOL  Okay, now for the real review and enough of my shenanigans. Divergent is different and it is not something that I have read before.  Obviously, because I do not read dystopian books as a rule and this is the first dystopian book that I read in this dystopian sub-genre.  I have managed to convince my […]
