Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor | Audiobook Review

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I can’t believe that I am waaaaay behind on this series!  I have seen these around the blogosphere but I thought it wasn’t my thing.  I mean – angels, paranormal?  I’m not really a fan of those themes.  Luckily, I sort of ran out of books to listen (le gasp!) and I was browsing the online library catalog (like you do) and I decided to borrow this.  My was I BLOWN away! Did you say it was AMAZING? I mean, The Daughter of Smoke […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

A Mermaid’s Kiss by Joey W. Hill | Book Review

A Mermaid’s Kiss by Joey W. Hill | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS This story is pretty tough for me to review.  At this time, I do not want to give out a summary of the story and I will just go ahead and give my thoughts.  The story starts, innocently enough with a mermaid, Anna rescuing an angel falling from the sky.  Apparently, this angel, Jonah was wounded in a war between Angels and Dark Ones that has been going on for centuries.  Wounded and unable to fly, Anna saves him and with his direction, brought him to an underwater cavern that has magical properties.  At this point, Jonah asks […]

Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks | Book Review

Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS This book is the first one that I read in the series and I am now reading the backlist! I had heard a lot about the Love at Stake Series but as I am not that fond of Paranormal Romance, I decided to skip it. However, I met Kerrelyn Sparks at the RT Booklovers Book Fair in Los Angeles in April and I got a signed copy of this book just for the heck of it. I started reading this when I got home and I could not put it down! I enjoyed the sparks that flew between […]

Torment by Lauren Kate | Book Review

Torment by Lauren Kate | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS I was a little bit disappointed about this sequel. Again, this book left me hanging and there was still a lot of issues that were left unanswered.  To be honest, I am still a little bit puzzled about the development of Daniel and Luce’s love story. True, they are destined to be together and have been falling in love in their past lives, but it was hard to believe how they fell in love in THIS life. It also seemed that Luce was not that interested with Daniel since it was apparent that she was flirting with another […]
