Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley | Audiobook Review

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Magonia is the debut book written by Maria Dahvana Headley and starts a new fantasy series of birdlike beings living in the clouds, in a world called Magonia.  The heroine, Aza Ray has a disease.  A rare disease that only she has.  A disease that has kept her from breathing normally.  Until her 16th birthday… I was intrigued by this story when I first heard about it.  The book cover is also eye-catching so I decided to listen to it via audiobook.  I love that it is read by two narrators, the female reads Aza Ray’s part and […]

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “I don’t know how to review this book at all!” I finished listening to Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge via audiobook a couple of months ago and my initial thought was:  “I don’t know what to say.”  I mean, at this point, I think I am in a love/hate relationship with the book for many, many reasons.  Crimson Bound is a standalone book and is also a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.  It is not in any way connected or a companion novel to Cruel Beauty but it has the same darkness and themes.  I admit that […]

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.  Since I’m not that active in the YA book community, I hadn’t heard of anything about this book.  So I came into this book knowing nothing about it, apart from the blurb. I was blown away by this book.  It’s because I personally haven’t read anything like this before.  Reboot is a YA dystopian novel about people dying and then coming back to life (rebooting) as super humans.  These people, they call them Reboots, are stronger, […]

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.  Interesting, right?  Well, I was intrigued by the plot and Plum’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.  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 who 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 reading Renegade.  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.  When I read Mila 2.0, I was blown away by the uniqueness of the story and the female bad-assery but I was a little bit disappointed by Renegade…initially.  When I say initially, 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 “A girl android?! Gimme!” I was really surprised that I enjoyed Mila 2.0.  I mean, a girl android?!  One who doesn’t know that she is one?!  One who IS a government secret weapon?!  Interesting, right?  I thought so.  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.  She can’t recall the events of the fire that killed her father a […]

Champion by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

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.  On the one hand, I really enjoyed it.  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.  I mean  and June !! So I just can’t get past it. Let’s talk about June.  In this book, she becomes the Princeps-Elect and […]
