Burn for Me & The Conspiracy of Us | DNF Reviews

because these are just not my cup of tea MY THOUGHTS I just can’t get into the story. It’s just super boring and 22% in nothing has happened at all! A whole lot of info dump is what’s happening and I am still confused as to what alternate universe the setting is! DNFing at 22%. Just NO!   This was my last post when I DNF’d Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews.  I had such high hopes for this book (and this series) because of the good reviews I read on GR.  But apparently, the story just didn’t work for […]

Waking Up with the Duke by Lorraine Heath | Re-read Audiobook Review

Waking Up with the Duke by Lorraine Heath | Re-read Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS   TIMES READ I have read this book multiple times already but this is the first time I listened to it via audiobook.   WHEN I FIRST READ I purchased the paperback way back when it was released in 2011.  Of course, my copy was left in the Ph where all my physical books are (yes, I’m pretty sad about that).   ORIGINAL REVIEW I wasn’t really reviewing books back then so I haven’t really written an actual review for this book but I remember that I LOVED it so much.  Initially, I was a little iffy about the […]

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo | Audiobook Review

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts I’ve heard about Shadow and Bone a while back but was mildly interested.  I had begun reading more YA books by then via audiobooks and I enjoy that format when “reading” YA books.  The Boss, who works out of state, decided that he wanted to read more books on his downtown and asked for recommendations.  I honestly shove more YA recommendations his way which he reads without question and even finishes the whole series before I do!  Because of that, I decided to go ahead and read Shadow and Bone since he said it was OK. Let me […]

His Forbidden Touch by Shelly Thacker | Audiobook Review

His Forbidden Touch by Shelly Thacker | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Re-read multiple times.  First listen.  One of my faves.” Would you believe that I carted this book from the Philippines to Los Angeles?  I actually have my battered copy with me right now.  I know it’s a little worn out but believe me when I tell you that it is so because I have been re-reading this book multiple times?  Well, a couple of weeks ago, I won an audiobook copy of His Forbidden Touch and decided to listen to it.  Immediately.  This took on a whole new experience for me. Chalons and Thuringia were at war for seven […]

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 […]

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 […]

Nine Rules to Break when Romancing A Rake by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

Nine Rules to Break when Romancing A Rake by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

My Thoughts I initially read Nine Rules to Break when Romancing a Rake a couple of years ago and DID NOT finish it! Gasp!  I know, right?  Then last year, I picked up One Good Earl Deserves a Lover and I was hooked!  I immediately went back and read her backlist and I am so glad that I did. The story takes place 10 years later when Callie, wanting to be free and taking a page from her brother, creates a bucket list.  Naturally, she immediately visits Gabriel in his townhouse in the middle of the night to ask for […]
