It was a little underwhelming | Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Batman: Nightwalker was very interesting. I am not an avid comic book or graphic novel reader, so this book was interesting. I have watched quite a bit of Batman animated movies, so I think I know a little bit of Batman facts. I was expecting to be blown away by Batman: Nightwalker, but I wasn’t. It was surprising to me at least. We get to see a teen Bruce Wayne before he had control of his company. We also meet his friends, Diana (who is Filipina, by […]

Who Would’ve Guessed that I would LOVE Paranormal Steampunk? The Falconer by Elizabeth May Audiobook Review

Who Would’ve Guessed that I would LOVE Paranormal Steampunk? The Falconer by Elizabeth May Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Well, well, well, well. Who would’ve thought that I would enjoy The Falconer so much? The fae, that’s who! *wink I believe this is the very first steampunk paranormal book that BLEW ME AWAY! Yes, it’s that AMAZING! Sure, I enjoyed The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare but that series does not come CLOSE to the amazingness that is The Falconer! The Falconer checked all the boxes for me. Awesome female character? Check! Anti-heroish mysterious character? Check! Spunky, comedic character? Check! Minimal romance? Check! Set in the […]

Over Hyped but Okay? Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh Audiobook Review

Over Hyped but Okay? Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I have to be very honest with you. I was extremely excited when I heard about this book. Supposedly, it has similar themes to Mulan in that our heroine dresses up as a boy. When I finally got around to reading it….uhmm I was in a for a slight let down. It’s not what I expected at all. I thought there would be more action but instead, I got a lot of Mariko’s internal musings. Again, it was okay but the story didn’t blow me away. […]

Romance and Epic Fantasy in one Amazing Book! The Winter King by C. L. Wilson Audiobook Review

Romance and Epic Fantasy in one Amazing Book! The Winter King by C. L. Wilson Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. It’s been a while since I wrote a review and I feel that I have become a bit rusty! Anyway, I will try to get my groove back and review away. The Winter King by C. L. Wilson blew me away from the first chapter! It had absolutely EVERYTHING that I love in a fantasy AND a romance book. Kick-ass female? CHECK Broody alpha male? CHECK CHECK Magic and power? CHECK CHECK CHECK Obviously, I am a little late in this book and I absolutely regret not picking this […]

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Spoiler Movie Review

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Spoiler Movie Review

This is not technically a “movie date night” because I saw Fantastic Beasts last week during the Friday matinee showing by myself. Of course, Pierre wasn’t really happy about that but I just couldn’t wait for him to come home from work. I had high expectations for this film. REALLY HIGH expectations and I have to admit that even though I enjoyed the movie, it didn’t live up to what I expected it to be. This is unlike what my experience was when I first saw Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. According to JK Rowling, Fantastic Beasts is NOT a prequel to the […]

When the Beast Remains A Beast For All Time   A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas    Book Review

When the Beast Remains A Beast For All Time A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas Book Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I’m finally taking the time to review ACoTaR!  I mean, it’s been a few weeks since I finished reading this book and I’m still left speechless.  Because the LAST FEW CHAPTERS!  OMG! OMG?!  What do you mean OMG?! Well, just what I said.  The last few chapters of ACoTaR decimated me.  In a good way and a bad way.  ACoTaR was a pretty slow start for me.  I guess it was because SJ Maas was setting up the whole world. Oh?  So back up.  What is this […]

Let’s Travel through Time with The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig | Audiobook Review

Let’s Travel through Time with The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I didn’t really hear a lot of buzz about The Girl from Everywhere.  This book is a prime example of cover love since that was the reason why I actually picked this book up!  I mean, LOOK AT THE COVER?! I was delightfully surprised by this book, though.  This book has a unique plot, at least something that I haven’t read about before! Oh, tell me more! The Girl from Everywhere is mostly set in Hawaii in 1884!  Honolulu, to be exact and I absolutely loved the unusual setting! […]
