Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “A fantastic ending to an awesome series” Listening to Clockwork Princess was gripping, emotionally touching, and amazing! Β The third and last book in the Infernal Devices Trilogy was not a letdown. Β Sure, it had the signs of closing and resolving all issues of the series but it didn’t disappoint. Β If you followed my review from the Clockwork Angel to the Clockwork Prince, you would know how psyched I am about this book and this series. Clockwork Princess starts off a couple of months after the end of Clockwork Prince where we were introduced to Cecily Herondale, Will’s youngest […]

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. Β 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. Β At this point, the Enclave is involved and so isΒ Consul Wayland. Β 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 […]

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare blew me away! Β I had read The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones last year but I was let down after all the hype and I did not continue reading the series. Β However, one of my co-workers told me that I would LOVE Clockwork Angel because it is not contemporary but historical. Β When the opportunity came, I decided to get the audiobook instead. Clockwork Angel is the first book in the prequel series The Infernal Devices and introduces us to a few new characters and gives us a glimpse of characters appearing in City […]

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green | Audiobook Review

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Heart wrenching. Β Lovely. Β Okay” I have been dragging my feet literally when it came to reading this book. Β See, I thought this book was going to beΒ too overly sentimental. Β Plus, I have never read any book by John Green before. Β I also thought this was going to be like A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks. Β I was right, in a way. Β When I was able to purchase the audiobook (via an Amazon Local Promo) last week, I decided to listen. Β Initially, I had thought I would be listening to the book over the course of a week […]

No Place Like Oz by Danielle Paige | Book Review

No Place Like Oz by Danielle Paige | Book Review

My Thoughts “Amazingly twisted…” I read Dorothy Must Die first and this book second. Β Although you don’t need to read this book first, I recommend that you do so as this book will answer a few questions you might have on Dorothy. The story starts a little slow, we are seeing Dorothy onΒ their farm in Kansas doing farm chores and missing Oz. Β She had told her Aunt Em, Uncle Henry, and her best friend about her adventures in Oz but they wouldn’t believe her. Β It is now 2 years after her trip to Oz and Dorothy has turned 16. Β During […]

Sapphires are an Earl’s Best Friend by Shana Galen | Book Review

My Thoughts “A page-turning tale of mystery and espionage” Sapphires are an Earl’s Best Friend is the third book in Shana Galen’s Jewels of the Ton series and focuses on Lily Dawson’s HEA. I enjoyed reading about Lily’s backstory. The story starts off with Lily (as a child) who was obviously intrigued by her father’s work. Her father is also a spy. Despite growing up in a loving family, she makes a mistake and is thrown out of the family home and is rescued by Lord Sinclair and his wife. I was very curious about Lily’s backstory since I read […]
