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?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Renegades 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 a very sloooooow book. I mean, the world building is amazing! In fact, it’s as vivid as her world […]

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

Don’t want to read the whole review?  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! 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, […]

Fun and Flirty! The Art of Running in Heels by Rachel Gibson [ARC Review]

Fun and Flirty! The Art of Running in Heels by Rachel Gibson [ARC Review]

I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. This is the second book by Rachel Gibson that I’ve read and OMG! Can you say CHARMING x 1000? And hilarious, too! I wasn’t even sure that I would like The Art of Running in Heels because of the over-the-top Bachelor type dating show and the heroine, Lexi joined one and she won! However, that runaway […]

Heartbreaking and Real | Wait for You, Trust in Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

Heartbreaking and Real | Wait for You, Trust in Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I don’t really know what made me pick-up wait for you by Jennifer L. Armentrout (writing as J. Lynn). To be honest, I received four of the books in this series a couple of years ago but since this wasn’t a genre that interested me, I didn’t bother reading it. Let’s just say that I am kicking myself because I didn’t read these books. I don’t even KNOW WHY I picked it up and whatever fairy impelled me to pick it up, THANK YOU SO MUCH […]

This Book was Hilarious! The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare Audiobook Review

This Book was Hilarious! The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I received an ARC for this book a few months before it was set to release but I had a hard time getting into it. I love Tessa Dare but that first chapter was excruciating.  I knew immediately that I would be listening to this book on audio so I waited until the release date and borrowed a copy of it from the library. Holy smokes The Duchess Deal blew me away! I don’t even know I had a hard time reading it in the […]

Insta-love at its WORST! The Fairest of Them All by Cathy Maxwell Audiobook Review

Insta-love at its WORST! The Fairest of Them All by Cathy Maxwell Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I honestly don’t know where to start reviewing The Fairest of Them All. To say that I was disappointed is an understatement. I am INFURIATED. Okay, I’d like to explain why my feelings are this… harsh. I absolutely HATE insta-love! Sure, there are books that can do this well, but this was NOT it! There is just too much insta-love in this book that I cannot… ARRGHH!! Sigh. Another reason why I am extremely disappointed is because The Fairest of Them All made my books pubbed in 2016 […]

Flipping Pages: Fair is the Rose by Meagan McKinney Audiobook Review

Flipping Pages: Fair is the Rose by Meagan McKinney Audiobook Review

Reviews of Books Written Before Year 2000. Lions and Lace and Fair is the Rose became available to borrow from the library at the same time, so it was a perfect for binge reading! Luckily, the narrator Lisa Flanagan was very good! Although I didn’t LOVE Fair is the Rose as much as I loved Lions and Lace, it is still one of my most memorable reads. I am not a fan of Western Historical Romance, but there was a time where I read a bunch of them. Fair is the Rose picks up about 3 years after the events of Lions and Lace and tells is […]
