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 […]

I Need More Steampunk! Firelight by Kristen Callihan Audiobook Review

I Need More Steampunk! Firelight by Kristen Callihan Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Hello, awesomeness! I am still amazed at how much I love reading steampunk paranormal romance! This is not the genre that I normally read. In fact, the last steampunk paranormal books that I read was The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare and although I enjoyed them, they didn’t make me WANT to read more books from the genre. Kristen Callihan’s Darkest London series is another story! The world that she created is immersive and very interesting! Although this book didn’t receive 5 hearts from […]

Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review. It’s been a while since I wrote a review and I feel that I have become a bitΒ rusty!Β Anyway, I will try to get my groove back and review away. The Winter King by C. L.

Graceling by Kristin Cashore | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “This audiobook is freaking awesome!” Have you ever read a book featuring FEMALE assassins? Β No, scratch that. Β Have you ever read a Young Adult book featuring assassins?

Β This book has adventure, magic, romance, courage, danger, […]

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Very dark and different” I admit that I had never heard of this book before but when it was recommended at audible as something that I might like, I decided to buy it. Β Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Β I am a fan of Disney’s version and I love Belle but this book is not it. Β It is a classic retelling set in a different place interspersed with Greek mythology (Cupid and Psyche’s story). The place, Arcadia, is cursed, brought about by the selfish prince’s bargain with the Kindly Ones. Β Arcadia […]
