Talon by Julie Kagawa | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. First off, I just want to say that I love how awesome the cover is! Does anyone agree?  Well, it seems that this is the only highlight of the book.  The last book I read with shapeshifting dragons was Vanish by Sophie Jordan and that turned into a DNF for me, no matter how much I loved Firelight, the first book in the series.  Why am I mentioning this?  It is because Talon is similar to this dragon story. What is this story about? This […]

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, […]

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS So The Lunar Chronicles has come to an end and I have bittersweet feelings about it.  I guess this just stems out of me not wanting this series to ever end!  I mean, there are still loose ends to tie! The moment I finished listening to this book, I had book hangover and I couldn’t wait to talk to someone about it.  Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone who read the book and hubby still hasn;t finished reading it.  Plus he is no fun with book discussions because he just grunts and says “ok” or “it’s good” so… Anyway, […]

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs | Audiobook Review

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS I have heard a lot of great things about Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs so I was pretty psyched when I started listening to the audiobook.  Unfortunately, I was a little put off.  Miss Peregrine’s did not live up to my expectations. Let’s talk about the genre. First off, it was marketed as a scary middle-grade novel but it just wasn’t!   I honestly don’t have any issues for the way the plot went, but it was marketed as a spine-tingling fantasy.  With the creepy looking girl on the cover, to the creepy pictures included in […]
