The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost | Audiobook Review

The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost | Audiobook Review

The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost is her first YA novel.  I have been putting off reviewing this book for a few months because Jeaniene Frost is one of my favorite authors and this book was a huge disappointment to me. What is it about? The Beautiful Ashes is about a young teen (adopted) who has the power to see otherworldly things (i.e. ghosts, different places not seen by other normal humans).  When her sister is kidnapped and her foster parents die of a car accident, Ivy is left alone and vows to find out what happened.  Because of her investigations, […]

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS So The Lunar Chronicles has come to an end and I have bittersweet feelings about it.  I guess this just stems out of me not wanting this series to ever end!  I mean, there are still loose ends to tie! The moment I finished listening to this book, I had book hangover and I couldn’t wait to talk to someone about it.  Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone who read the book and hubby still hasn;t finished reading it.  Plus he is no fun with book discussions because he just grunts and says “ok” or “it’s good” so… Anyway, […]

Rebel by Amy Tintera | Audiobook Review

Rebel by Amy Tintera | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS After reading (and being blown away by) Reboot, I immediately started listening to Rebel, the second book in the series. Again, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it to a point where I did not want the book to end! What I loved about it: The characters were complex. We all knew the characters from the first book. Well, we get to know more about them in the second. New characters are introduced and I feel that these were equally important to the progression of the plot and not just some random background characters. Action and […]

Reboot by Amy Tintera | Audiobook Review

Reboot by Amy Tintera | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Reboot – a different kind of zombie!” While I was browsing for books to read, I came across Reboot by Amy Tintera.  Since I’m not that active in the YA book community, I hadn’t heard of anything about this book.  So I came into this book knowing nothing about it, apart from the blurb. I was blown away by this book.  It’s because I personally haven’t read anything like this before.  Reboot is a YA dystopian novel about people dying and then coming back to life (rebooting) as super humans.  These people, they call them Reboots, are stronger, […]

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 […]

Graceling by Kristin Cashore | Audiobook Review

Graceling by Kristin Cashore | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “This audiobook is freaking awesome!” Have you ever read a book featuring FEMALE assassins?  No, scratch that.  Have you ever read a Young Adult book featuring assassins?  I know I’m late in the game but this is the first YA book that I read featuring female assassins and I was blown away!  This story is amazingly well written and unique!  Plus, this is a stand-alone book and does not end on a cliffhanger!  What’s more, there are no freaking LOVE TRIANGLES!  Just a love between a prince and an assassin.  This book has adventure, magic, romance, courage, danger, […]

Cress by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Cress by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Before starting my review, I would like to apologize to my readers for posting a blank post for this review a few weeks back.  With my pending vacation (I am still on said vacay), I was unaware that I set this review to post when I haven’t even written it!  So, please pardon my flightiness! My Thoughts Warning: This review may contain spoilers Since I read Scarlet, I have been super excited to read Cress because let’s face it, Thorn is a very interesting character!  In fact, I was hoping that Thorn would be the hero in this book.  I was not […]
