Burn for Me & The Conspiracy of Us | DNF Reviews

because these are just not my cup of tea MY THOUGHTS I just can’t get into the story. It’s just super boring and 22% in nothing has happened at all! A whole lot of info dump is what’s happening and I am still confused as to what alternate universe the setting is! DNFing at 22%. Just NO!   This was my last post when I DNF’d Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews.  I had such high hopes for this book (and this series) because of the good reviews I read on GR.  But apparently, the story just didn’t work for […]

Prodigy by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

Prodigy by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Prodigy, the second book in the Legend series, picks up right after the first one, Legend ends – with both June and Day on the run from the Republic.  They make their way to Las Vegas, where the Patriots (the rebel group out to overthrow the Republic) are supposed to be based.  With Day injured, barely able to escape his execution, they meet up with the leader of the Patriots, and also meet up with Tess and Kaylee!  At the same time, the Elector Primo dies and his young son (very young son) takes over as the current […]

Legend by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

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 […]

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 […]

Fairest by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Fairest by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Let me just tell you that when I read Cinder, I hated Levana on sight (when I read her in the first book Cinder, I mean)!  She really felt like some weird, ugly crypt keeper-like Lunar with the veil concealing her face from the public, and even from us, the readers. So, when I heard that she was going to have her own story, I was excited!  This novella would be the answer to all the questions that had been on my mind.  Like:  What’s with the f-ing veil? or Why do you insist on marrying Prince Kai […]
