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 Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey | Audiobook Review

The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. Ok, I admit it, I have never heard of The Fifth Wave until I saw the trailer a couple of months ago.  If you know me, you would know that I am so into aliens.  In fact, one of my favorite shows is Ancient Aliens, but I digress.  Let’s just say that I am very fascinated by aliens. What is it about? The Fifth Wave is about an alien attack on Earth.  The attacks come in waves; the first wave: total blackout; […]

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Book & Audiobook Review

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Book & Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. I have to really honest about this book, Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff and admit that it took me a while to finish reading it.  And as much as I loved it, and was blown away by it, I still had a hard time getting into the book.  In fact, this is the first book that I read in this format because I thought, hey, I wouldn’t be interested in reading a book in email or chat form. What makes the book […]

Talon by Julie Kagawa | Audiobook Review

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

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 […]
