Indiana Jones in Space! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review? ย Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I FINALLY read it! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner wasโ€ฆ enjoyable.

They needed to establish Gaia and of course the Earth during that time. Unearthed also introduced the main players in this adventure and why they were on Gaia in the first place. Which is why there was a lot of telling and […]

Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray Skinny Audiobook Review

A Thousand Pieces of You was a re-listen for me last year. I listened to the audiobook in 2014 when it first came out because of the GORGEOUS cover! Other than that, I thought it was amazing!
