Who Would’ve Guessed that I would LOVE Paranormal Steampunk? The Falconer by Elizabeth May Audiobook Review

Who Would’ve Guessed that I would LOVE Paranormal Steampunk? The Falconer by Elizabeth May Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Well, well, well, well. Who would’ve thought that I would enjoy The Falconer so much? The fae, that’s who! *wink I believe this is the very first steampunk paranormal book that BLEW ME AWAY! Yes, it’s that AMAZING! Sure, I enjoyed The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare but that series does not come CLOSE to the amazingness that is The Falconer! The Falconer checked all the boxes for me. Awesome female character? Check! Anti-heroish mysterious character? Check! Spunky, comedic character? Check! Minimal romance? Check! Set in the […]

No, no, no! Not my favorite character! | Into the Fire by Jeaniene Frost Audiobook Review

No, no, no! Not my favorite character! | Into the Fire by Jeaniene Frost Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Finally, FINALLY – we get the last and final book in the Night Prince novels! Into the Fire was a long time coming since publishing had been pushed back for about a year. So now, at last, we get Vlad and Leila’s happily ever after! I must say that I had high hopes for Into the Fire. In fact, Once Burned was the first book by Jeaniene Frost that I read! But I still have to say that Cat and Bones are the star couple. Anyway, back to […]

OMG THE FEELS! Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas Audiobook Review

OMG THE FEELS! Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Devil in Spring was absolutely DELIGHTFUL! Actually, I was a little bit worried about this book because although Pandora was very interesting in Cold-Hearted Rake and Marrying Winterborne, she tended to become very irritating, which really frustrated me. A LOT. Finding out who the hero for this book was, BLEW me away! I actually re-read Devil in Winter last year because I was so excited! As many know, Sebastian St. Vincent is one of Lisa Kleypas’ favorite and beloved heroes. I can see why. But I don’t agree. […]

Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray Skinny Audiobook Review

Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray Skinny Audiobook Review

A Thousand Pieces of You was a re-listen for me last year. I listened to the audiobook in 2014 when it first came out because of the GORGEOUS cover! Other than that, I thought it was amazing! This is the first book in the Firebird Trilogy and centers around the Caine family and Marguerite, the daughter of scientists who invented time travel using their time machine necklace called the Firebird. The whole plot of the first book revolves around trying to find Marguerite’s father who is trapped in another multiverse. My first reaction to this book was AWE! This book had me riveted, especially […]

A Sizzling Romance with a Bad Boy | All Chained Up by Sophie Jordan | Audiobook Review

A Sizzling Romance with a Bad Boy | All Chained Up by Sophie Jordan | Audiobook Review

I thought this was a great way to start my review, by sharing my clothing inspiration based on All Chained Up!  There is also a specific scene where I got this inspiration from, the Fourth of July (I can’t remember which holiday precisely) barbecue Briar’s sister had AND where Knox was not precisely invited.  Needless to say that the party did not end well.  Anyway, I am predicting future barbecues where Knox IS invited and I am envisioning Briar to be wearing a fun sundress with sandals!  What do you think?

Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Review

Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I’m finally reviewing Heir of Fire, the third book in the Throne of Glass series and it is just as devastating as Crown of Midnight! There are revelations and DEATHS and creatures – monsters! And I’m also talking about HUMAN monsters. Devastating? AGAIN? Well, the first half of Heir of Fire started out a little slow for my taste. Mostly because we are now given a few info dumps (that aren’t really info dumps because SJMaas is just BRILLIANT!) about Wendelin and the Fae. We […]

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Review

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Finally!  I finished the Throne of Glass sequel a year after I read the first book, Throne of Glass!  And I regret NOT reading this (or listening) book ASAP!  Why am I so behind with this series?  I mean, Crown of Midnight DEVASTATED ME! Devastated you? See, something happens here TWICE that I can’t even…!  I mean, both really left me reeling and I can’t seem to move on from that.  And this happens a little bit past the halfway mark.  And then it gets […]

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Re-Listen Review

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Re-Listen Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I had read this book a year ago and I liked it.  In fact, I gave it 4 hearts BUT I did not review it at all, and I also did not binge read the series.  To tell you the truth, I have no idea why it took me this long to review it.  It does help that I re-read (re-listened) this a few days before the end of the year.  I know it’s old news but if you’re like me who doesn’t read […]

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 […]
