Rebel by Amy Tintera | Audiobook Review

Rebel by Amy Tintera | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS After reading (and being blown away by) Reboot, I immediately started listening to Rebel, the second book in the series. Again, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it to a point where I did not want the book to end! What I loved about it: The characters were complex. We all knew the characters from the first book. Well, we get to know more about them in the second. New characters are introduced and I feel that these were equally important to the progression of the plot and not just some random background characters. Action and […]

Reboot by Amy Tintera | Audiobook Review

Reboot by Amy Tintera | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Reboot – a different kind of zombie!” While I was browsing for books to read, I came across Reboot by Amy Tintera.  Since I’m not that active in the YA book community, I hadn’t heard of anything about this book.  So I came into this book knowing nothing about it, apart from the blurb. I was blown away by this book.  It’s because I personally haven’t read anything like this before.  Reboot is a YA dystopian novel about people dying and then coming back to life (rebooting) as super humans.  These people, they call them Reboots, are stronger, […]

Until the Beginning by Amy Plum | Audiobook Review

Until the Beginning by Amy Plum | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Until the Beginning, the second book in the After the End series continues the cliffhanger in the first book.  Juneau and Miles are on the run, Miles is shot and Juneau had to perform The Right on him to save his life.  At this point, Juneau is also discovering her powers and the reasons behind them.  I’m not sure how to review this book.  I think it’s a love it/hate it type of thing because I think there is nothing that is going on for the most part of the book. What I love about the book: We […]

Hallowed by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Re-Read Review

Hallowed by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Re-Read Review

MY THOUGHTS Hallowed, the second book in the Unearthly series picks up right after the first book, Unearthly end.  I was really surprised (in a good way) that I really loved this book.  Okay, so there IS a sort of love triangle BUT I love how Clara was NOT professing her   So yes, I really loved that Clara was acting like a normal teenager in a sense that she was rebelling her purpose. In this book, we get to know the major characters more: Tucker, Wendy, Christian, Jeffrey and even Samjeeza.  There are also secrets that are revealed (shocking ones but […]

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Re-Read Review

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Re-Read Review

MY THOUGHTS I read Unearthly last year but did not get a chance to do a full review.  I re-listened to the audiobook on Scribd (love this subscription, BTW) and fell in love with the story again.  Initially, I was not expecting to like the story.  I had already read a couple of “angels” books (read Fallen by Lauren Kate and Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins) and I was not into it.  With those two books in mind, I was pretty apprehensive with Unearthly.  Plus, the washed out cover didn’t really capture my interest but since I run out of reading material, I decided to […]

Uninvited by Sophie Jordan | Audiobook Review

Uninvited by Sophie Jordan | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Interesting enough” Uninvited is the new YA Sci-Fi/Dystopian series by Sophie Jordan with similarities to the movie Minority Report with Tom Cruise.  Except with teens.  And hormones.  And spoiled brats?  Anway, I was interested in the premise – a futuristic society governed by a company that had coerced convinced the government that they are able to isolate the HTS (Homicidal Tendency Syndrome) gene, identify the individuals carrying that gene and stopping them even before they commit the actual act.  Interesting, right?  Well, I thought it was a little bit interesting at first but then it started to become a […]

The Selection Series by Kiera Cass | Audiobook Review

The Selection Series by Kiera Cass | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts Please note that I am only reviewing the three books (The Selection, The Elite, and The One) “I hated it but I had to finish it!” Ah, The Selection series.  Where shall I start?  Perhaps I shall start with how I did not like the series at all BUT I was sucked in and HAD to finish the blasted thing because I hoped, in the end, America would choose Aspen and just hang Maxon?!  So yes, it is that predictable. I decided to go ahead and review the whole series rather than review each book.  I mean, each book can […]

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins | Audiobook Review

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts I really don’t know how to review this book.  I initially borrowed it because I was intrigued by the premise – the heroine is a daughter of a Fallen Angel and a Guardian Angel and falls in love with a son of a Fallen Angel.  Sadly, I was wrong.  Let me start by enumerating the things that I didn’t like about this book.  Anna Whit was sickeningly sweet.  Okay, so just because you were a daughter of a Guardian Angel doesn’t mean that you have to be a goody-two-shoes and one really really sweet that it borders on […]
