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. ย 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). ย When her sister is kidnapped and her foster parents dieย of a car accident, Ivy is left alone and vows to find out what happened. ย Because of her investigations, […]

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.ย  Since Iโ€™m not that active in the YA book community, I hadnโ€™t heard of anything about this book.ย  So I came into this book knowing nothing about it, apart from the blurb. I was blown away by this book.ย  Itโ€™s because I personally havenโ€™t read anything like this before.ย  Reboot is a YA dystopian novel about people dying and then coming back to life (rebooting) as super humans.ย  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.ย  Juneau and Miles are on the run, Miles is shot and Juneau had to perform The Right on him to save his life.ย  At this point, Juneau is also discovering her powers and the reasons behind them.ย  Iโ€™m not sure how to review this book.ย  I think itโ€™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 […]

After the End by Amy Plum | Audiobook Review

After the End by Amy Plum | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “If Miles couldn’t drive, he’d be a complete dead weight.” Juneau After the End, the first book in a series written by Amy Plum is about what happens after World War III in 1984.ย  Interesting, right?ย  Well, I was intrigued by the plot and Plumโ€™s story did not disappoint. I was intrigued by the fact that this community thrived for about thirty years in the Alaskan wilderness without anyone finding about them.ย  Or, even without the other people in the settlement finding out about the real world. The heroine Juneau has grown up in a small commune at […]

Renegade by Debra Driza | Audiobook Review

Renegade by Debra Driza | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Mila started out to be someone whoย was TSTL but all that changed halfway through the book… I shouldn’t love this.. but I do!”   That was my post when I finished readingย Renegade. ย This is the second book in the Mila 2.0 series written by Debra Driza about a female android/military weapon who is so advanced that she feels and acts human. ย When I read Mila 2.0, I was blown away by the uniqueness of the story and the female bad-asseryย but I was a little bit disappointed by Renegade…initially. ย When I sayย initially,ย I mean that I really didn’t like Mila […]

Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza | Audiobook Review

Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Aย girl android?! Gimme!” I was really surprised that I enjoyed Mila 2.0. ย I mean, a girl android?! ย One who doesn’t know that she is one?! ย One who IS a government secret weapon?! ย Interesting, right? ย I thought so. ย In fact, I had a hard time rating the book (so I settled for a 3.5) because I felt there were a lot of holes and a few things that I thought needed more work. Mila 2.0 is about a 16-year-old girl named Mila, who presumably has amnesia. ย She can’t recall the events of the fire that killed her father a […]

Champion by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “The ending was just……!!!” So, I am in a bind as to how I felt about this book. ย On the one hand, I really enjoyed it. ย The plot was fast paced and felt like a quick listen, too (it had lesser chapters than the usual YA novel) and despite the fact that it had fewer chapters, the last book of the trilogy managed to answer a few questions. That being said, I HATED the ending. ย I meanย  and Juneย !! So I just can’t get past it. Let’s talk about June. ย In this book, she becomes the Princeps-Elect and […]

Prodigy by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

Prodigy by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Prodigy, the second book in the Legend series, picks up right after the first one, Legend ends – with both June and Day on the run from the Republic. ย They make their way to Las Vegas, where the Patriots (the rebel group out to overthrow the Republic) are supposed to be based. ย With Day injured, barely able to escape his execution, they meet up with the leader of the Patriots, and also meet up with Tess and Kaylee! ย At the same time, the Elector Primo dies and his young son (very young son) takes over as the current […]
