Legend by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “A surprising read!” I really didn’t have any expectations when I started reading this book.  In fact, I thought it was going to be another Divergent/Hunger Games dystopia book and thought it would be too cookie-cutter for my taste.  BUT I was really surprised that I enjoyed it!  Sure, there were a few flaws that made me rate it 4 stars but….. Day! Legend is really full of kickass, badass, fighter FEMALES!  In this book alone, 3 were prominent fighters.  Not to mention that the heroine, June IS a freaking child fighting prodigy!  At this point, Legend diverted from […]

Boundless by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Review

Boundless by Cynthia Hand | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS The last book in the Unearthly trilogy by Cynthia Hand, Boundless is supposed to answer all the questions that we may have in the last 2 books (and even the novella, Radiant).  Unfortunately, it brings about more questions. At this point, I am not sure if I should give this book 3 hearts or 4.  No, don’t get me wrong but I really enjoyed this book and it was written very well by Miss Hand BUT I simply do not like the outcome.  No, more like, NOT SATISFIED with the outcome of the story. What I liked: I […]

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 […]
