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.  The first book is titled The Madman’s Daughter.  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.  Her Dark Curiosity tells the story of what happens to Juliet Moreau after she leaves her father’s island by herself.  She is rescued by Professor Von Stein, her father’s old friend and he raises her like a daughter.  Unfortunately for Juliet, her father’s treatment for her is failing and she is plagued by […]

The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd |  Audiobook Review

The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Gripping and creepy.  A perfect combination” The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd is the first book in the Madman’s Daughter series and is a classic retelling of H.G. Wells’ book The Island of Dr. Moreau and tells the story of Juliet Moreau, Dr. Moreau’s daughter.  Although I have not read H.G. Wells’ book, I went to Wikipedia and checked out the plot before listening to the audiobook. Gripping and creepy, The Madman’s Daughter is a story about finding the truth in a web of lies.  Juliet Moreau, the daughter of the disgraced Dr. Moreau, is working as a […]

His Forbidden Touch by Shelly Thacker | Audiobook Review

His Forbidden Touch by Shelly Thacker | Audiobook Review

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

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!  The third and last book in the Infernal Devices Trilogy was not a letdown.  Sure, it had the signs of closing and resolving all issues of the series but it didn’t disappoint.  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.  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.  At this point, the Enclave is involved and so is Consul Wayland.  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!  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.  However, one of my co-workers told me that I would LOVE Clockwork Angel because it is not contemporary but historical.  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 […]

How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days by Kate McKinley | Book Review

How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days by Kate McKinley | Book Review

My Thoughts “A surprisingly steamy read!” How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days is the first book that I read from Kate McKinley and it won’t be my last!  I really had no expectation when I started reading this book.  In fact, this is the second read this year that I read a book of the same title.  That should be something of a negative, right?  Wrong!  I thoroughly enjoyed this book!  For a novella, it felt like a full-length story to me.  In that I mean that the characters are fully developed AND a lot happened in the story.  I […]
