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 IΒ FIRST READ I purchased the paperback way back when it was released in 2011. Β 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. Β Initially, I was a little iffy about the […]

How the Scoundrel Seduces by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

How the Scoundrel Seduces by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

My Thoughts How the Scoundrel Seduces is the third book in Sabrina Jeffries’ The Duke’s Men series (Book 1: Β What the Duke Desires & Book 2: When the Rogue Returns) and tells the story of Tristan Bonnaud and Zoe Keane integrating colorful secondary characters and the interesting Romany – or the gypsies. Lady Zoe Keane is set to inherit her father, the Earl of Olivier’s properties but she discovers a secret. Β She might not be the Earl’s daughter after all! Β She asks the aid of Manton Investigations (aka The Duke’s Men, referenced in When the Rogue Returns) to help her […]

Romancing the Duke by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

Romancing the Duke by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts Tessa Dare has done it again! Β Romancing the Duke, the first book in her Castles Ever After series is an awesome read!

Β She has been left destitute by her father and had nowhere to go until she got word about her inheritance. Β She immediately embarks on a journey to claim her castle without knowing that said […]

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins | Audiobook Review

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Let the 75th Hunger Games begin!” There is a lot to say about Catching Fire that I do not know where to begin. Β This book is a precursor of the things to come in the next book, Mockingjay and it also lays the groundwork for the rebellion. I could not stop listening to this book. Β Not only is it amazingly written, I get to know all the characters more. Β Katniss, Peeta, Gayle and Haymitch all reveal their characters here. Β I also love the little hintsΒ sprinkled throughout the first part of the book, giving us a hint of what […]

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins | Audiobook Review

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “And may the odds be forever in your favor…” I don’t know how to start reviewing this book at all! Β I have been putting off reading this book since – well, forever and I regret it! Β It was a few years ago when I started reading this book but did not finish it and last Christmas, I actually bought a hardbound set of the Trilogy. Β It wasn’t until last week (YES LAST WEEK!) that I decided to try it in audiobook format. Β I wasn’t disappointed. Although I had seen the movie before, it hadn’t ruined my reading Hunger […]

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 […]

Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd | Audiobook Review

Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts Her Dark Curiosity is the second book in The Madman’s Daughter series. Β The first book is titled The Madman’s Daughter. Β The second book takes place in London and is a retelling of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Β Her Dark Curiosity tells the story of what happens to Juliet Moreau after she leaves her father’s island by herself. Β She is rescued by Professor Von Stein, her father’s old friend and he raises her like a daughter. Β Unfortunately for Juliet, her father’s treatment for her is failing and she is plagued by […]

His Forbidden Touch by Shelly Thacker | Audiobook Review

His Forbidden Touch by Shelly Thacker | Audiobook Review

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