No, no, no! Not my favorite character! | Into the Fire by Jeaniene Frost Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Finally, FINALLY – we get the last and final book in the Night Prince novels! This book was a long time coming since publishing had been pushed back for about a year. So now, at last, we get Vlad and Leila’s happily ever after! I must say that I had high hopes for this book. In fact, Once Burned was the first book by Jeaniene Frost that I read! But I still have to say that Cat and Bones are the star couple. Anyway, back to Vlad and Leila’s […]

Quick Reviews: Fire, The Cage, Shiver

Quick Reviews: Fire, The Cage, Shiver

For this quick review post, I decided to review the books that I DNF’d last year.  Incidentally, I really didn’t have a lot that I DNF’d last year so I promise, my quick reviews aren’t going to be about books that I DNF’d or that I hated.  I know some of these are fan favorites, but they just didn’t work for me. I am listing down 3 reasons why I DNF’d them.  Ready? GO! 3 REASONS WHY I DNF’d I honestly was expecting A LOT with Fire.  Since it is a companion for Graceling, which I absolutely LOVED, I came into this book […]

Bordeline by Mishell Baker | Book Review + Giveaway

Bordeline by Mishell Baker | Book Review + Giveaway

I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Borderline is an urban fantasy/paranormal YA book, a genre that I hardly read, but when I read the blurb, I immediately thought that it was something that I would love to read.  I was RIGHT!  This book really surprised me in a good way and I am excited to read more about Millie […]

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I can’t believe that I am waaaaay behind on this series!  I have seen these around the blogosphere but I thought it wasn’t my thing.  I mean – angels, paranormal?  I’m not really a fan of those themes.  Luckily, I sort of ran out of books to listen (le gasp!) and I was browsing the online library catalog (like you do) and I decided to borrow this.  My was I BLOWN away! Did you say it was AMAZING? I mean, The Daughter of Smoke […]

Talon by Julie Kagawa | Audiobook Review

Talon by Julie Kagawa | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. First off, I just want to say that I love how awesome the cover is! Does anyone agree?  Well, it seems that this is the only highlight of the book.  The last book I read with shapeshifting dragons was Vanish by Sophie Jordan and that turned into a DNF for me, no matter how much I loved Firelight, the first book in the series.  Why am I mentioning this?  It is because Talon is similar to this dragon story. What is this story about? This […]

The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost | Audiobook Review

The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost | Audiobook Review

The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost is her first YA novel.  I have been putting off reviewing this book for a few months because Jeaniene Frost is one of my favorite authors and this book was a huge disappointment to me. What is it about? The Beautiful Ashes is about a young teen (adopted) who has the power to see otherworldly things (i.e. ghosts, different places not seen by other normal humans).  When her sister is kidnapped and her foster parents die of a car accident, Ivy is left alone and vows to find out what happened.  Because of her investigations, […]

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs | Audiobook Review

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS I have heard a lot of great things about Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs so I was pretty psyched when I started listening to the audiobook.  Unfortunately, I was a little put off.  Miss Peregrine’s did not live up to my expectations. Let’s talk about the genre. First off, it was marketed as a scary middle-grade novel but it just wasn’t!   I honestly don’t have any issues for the way the plot went, but it was marketed as a spine-tingling fantasy.  With the creepy looking girl on the cover, to the creepy pictures included in […]

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley | Audiobook Review

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Magonia is the debut book written by Maria Dahvana Headley and starts a new fantasy series of birdlike beings living in the clouds, in a world called Magonia.  The heroine, Aza Ray has a disease.  A rare disease that only she has.  A disease that has kept her from breathing normally.  Until her 16th birthday… I was intrigued by this story when I first heard about it.  The book cover is also eye-catching so I decided to listen to it via audiobook.  I love that it is read by two narrators, the female reads Aza Ray’s part and […]
