This Totally Surprised Me! Jackaby by William Ritter Audiobook Review

This Totally Surprised Me! Jackaby by William Ritter Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Hello, Paranormal! I absolutely enjoyed this book so much and I can’t believe I waited a couple of years before I read this book! I mean, it has been on my TBR pile for the longest time! I also have a physical copy of this book but I decided to go for the audiobook version, which I DO NOT regret at all! I mean, picture Sherlock Holmes in America during the late 1800s with a touch of the paranormal! And of course, I LOVE a […]

I was brought to tears by the Bedchamber Games by Tracy Anne Warren | Book Review

I was brought to tears by the Bedchamber Games by Tracy Anne Warren | Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Netgalley 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 series was unmemorable for me TBH. I read the first book, The Bedding Proposal and I even rated it a 4/5, but for the life me, I just can’t remember the plot! I guess, this calls for a re-read! I also put the second book, Happily Bedded Bliss, on hold and I’m not really […]

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. […]

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 […]

Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz | Audiobook Review

Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I honestly don’t know how to review this book. When I finished listening to the audiobook, I was hit with homesickness. If you don’t know already, I am an immigrant (now a US citizen) and I am Filipino, so this book really hit home for me. Coincidentally, my turn for the library cue came a few days before the US Presidential Election, which I thought was very appropriate. I had to read this. In fact, I finished listening to the audiobook on election day. I admit to […]

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund | Book Review

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund | Book Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. It took me a while (well years, really) to finally read this. I first For Darkness Shows the Stars a little after it came out and I was blown away by the awesome cover! I mean, LOOK AT THAT COVER! And the title is GENIUS! Anyway, fast forward to three months ago when I had some time to finally be inspired to read it. I think my mood just fit! I was FINALLY able to finish it! So, just as an aside, I haven’t READ or even […]

Basically MY Life Story – Minus the FanFic Fame | Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell | Audiobook Review

Basically MY Life Story – Minus the FanFic Fame | Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I didn’t have any expectations going into Fangirl. Sure, I had heard a lot of awesome things about Rainbow Rowell, but I honestly haven’t picked up her books. I DID have Fangirl and Carry On signed by Rainbow Rowel at Yallwest earlier this year, but I gave my Fangirl copy to my cousin who absolutely ADORES Rainbow! Anyway, in preparation for reading Carry On (which I STILL HAVEN’T DONE!), I decided to read Fangirl first and I WAS AMAZED! I mean, if you are a total […]

Searching For Series by Jennifer Probst | Audiobook Review

Searching For Series by Jennifer Probst | Audiobook Review

It’s pretty obvious that I have been hooked to Contemporary Romance for the last month. I blame Sophie Jordan for this! Not, that I am super mad or anything but I am feeling the LOVE! To be honest, I haven’t been reading a lot of contemporaries. The first ones I read were a few chick lits and some thriller/romantic suspense (that was more on the romance side), and of course contemporary erotic romances. But honestly, I wasn’t really hooked. Well, until NOW! I honestly am NOT looking back! And yes, I have read quite a few contemporaries since I finished reading this series! Don’t […]

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Re-Read Review

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Re-Read Review

MY THOUGHTS I read Unearthly last year but did not get a chance to do a full review.  I re-listened to the audiobook on Scribd (love this subscription, BTW) and fell in love with the story again.  Initially, I was not expecting to like the story.  I had already read a couple of “angels” books (read Fallen by Lauren Kate and Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins) and I was not into it.  With those two books in mind, I was pretty apprehensive with Unearthly.  Plus, the washed out cover didn’t really capture my interest but since I run out of reading material, I decided to […]
