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. […]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Hello, Paranormal! I absolutely enjoyed this book so much and I can’t believe I waited a couple of years before I read this book! I mean, it has been on my TBR pile for the longest time! I also have a physical copy of this book but I decided to go for the audiobook version, which I DO NOT regret at all!

All that’s Missing is an EPIC Space Battle! Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I have no reason why I love reading about artificial intelligence and this book HAS one! Think YA Star Wars! Sure, the start was a little slow, but the story picked up speed as I got immersed into the world. Defy the Stars is about two unlikely heroes, an android named Abel and a teen soldier named Noemi. Noemi inadvertently rescues Abel from his prison where he has been stuck in for about thirty years. These two become allies as they try to stop an […]

Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray Skinny Audiobook Review

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! This is the first book in the Firebird Trilogy and centers around the Caine family and Marguerite, the daughter of scientists who invented time travel using their time machine necklace called the Firebird. The whole plot of the first book revolves around trying to find Marguerite’s father who is trapped in another multiverse. My first reaction to this book was AWE! This book had me riveted, especially […]

Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I honestly don’t know how to review this book. When I finished listening to the audiobook, I was hit with homesickness. If you don’t know already, I am an immigrant (now a US citizen) and I am Filipino, so this book really hit home for me. Coincidentally, my turn for the library cue came a few days before the US Presidential Election, which I thought was very appropriate. I had to read this. In fact, I finished listening to the audiobook on election day. I admit to […]
