Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Multiple people from my book club recommended that I read The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata because of the awesome slow burn romance. Unfortunately, this book wasn’t for me and it ended up as a DNF for me. Now let me explain, I am one of those readers who DNF books quickly, but I did TRY my damned best to finish this book and gave it chance after chance. Until ultimately, I finally had to stop torturing myself and end it at 72%. […]

It was a little underwhelming | Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu [Audiobook Review]

It was a little underwhelming | Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Batman: Nightwalker was very interesting. I am not an avid comic book or graphic novel reader, so this book was interesting. I have watched quite a bit of BatmanΒ animated movies, so I think I know a little bit of Batman facts. I was expecting to be blown away byΒ Batman: Nightwalker, but I wasn’t. It was surprising to me at least. We get to see a teen Bruce Wayne before he had control of his company. We also meet his friends, Diana (who is Filipina, by […]

Romeo & Juliet, X-Men & Revenge | Renegades by Marissa Meyer Audiobook Review

Romeo & Juliet, X-Men & Revenge | Renegades by Marissa Meyer Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   RenegadesΒ is a book that I have been putting off for a while. I have been very hesitant in diving in because of the lackluster early reviews. It’s unfortunate, really because Marissa Meyer is one of my favorite YA authors. I finally listened to the audiobook this month and I liked it? So, I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this book. Let’s just say that it is aΒ very sloooooowΒ book. I mean, the world building is amazing! In fact, it’s as vivid as her world […]

Indiana Jones in Space! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner [Audiobook Review]

Indiana Jones in Space! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I FINALLY read it! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner was… enjoyable. Well, it didn’t blow me away as I expected it to, but it wasn’t bad. It was OKAY. Let me explain. Unearthed had a lot of world building to establish. They needed to establish Gaia and of course the Earth during that time. Unearthed also introduced the main players in this adventure and why they were on Gaia in the first place. Which is why there was a lot of telling and […]

Meet Mary Sue & Gary Stu! The Hookup by Kristen Ashley [Audiobook Review]

Meet Mary Sue & Gary Stu! The Hookup by Kristen Ashley [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I bought this audiobook because it was on sale for $1 or something when I got the free ebook on Amazon and I can’t believe I actually finished the whole book!Β No, I’m not saying that The Hookup is not good, it’s just that the main characters were a Mary Sue and Gary Stu! And I haven’t said this about any character ever! I mean, I’m all for a good girl and good boy characters but SO PERFECT? Really? Izzy, the SUPER Amazing WOMAN Here’s the deal, […]

Oh, the Nostalgia! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson [Audiobook Review]

Oh, the Nostalgia! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review. This is my first Rachel Gibson book and I was charmed! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson had all the pop culture references which was full of nostalgia and OMG! I love it! It is pretty obvious thatΒ Simply Irresistible was published in 1998. But as much as it felt dated, it still stands the test of time in my opinion. It’s just that I am a little bit used to romances with a higher steam factor. The Characters are AMAZING This is probably one of the […]

What an Emotional Rollercoaster! Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai [Audiobook Review]

What an Emotional Rollercoaster! Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Hate to Want You is the first book by Alisha Rai that I read and it won’t be my last! You can say that this book has a lot of drama and it was a bit over the top but still so good! The story picks up 10 years after all the drama and scandal of both the Oka-Kane and Chandler families. This is a classic Romeo and Juliet story about warring families only it ends with an HEA. I’m a sucker for second-chance romance […]

A Well Earned HEA! Be with Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

A Well Earned HEA! Be with Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Remember that time when I was binge-reading Jennifer L. Armentrout? Well, this book really surprised me in a good way because of the twist in the end! I will not be revealing the twist because I actually loved the way it was revealed to Teresa because that was also the time that it was revealed to the reader. Although, I knew the twist by the second chapter. Yes, it was that glaring to me but maybe because it hit a little bit closer to home for […]

I Wanted More Heat! Losing It & Keeping Her by Cora Carmack [Audiobook Review]

I Wanted More Heat! Losing It & Keeping Her by Cora Carmack [Audiobook Review]

This is the first book that I read written by Cora Carmack and IΒ enjoyed it! This is another taboo romance because the hero is her professor but he is also not that much older than the heroine. The good thing about this romance is that they didn’t really “hookup” until AFTER the heroine’s graduation! Losing ItΒ was a perfect New Adult listen for me during the holidays because it was pretty short and sweet. Although, I wanted there to be more heat and sexy times! So yeah, this book felt too sweet for the New Adult romances that I had been […]
