Music & Romance | Roomies by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

Music & Romance | Roomies by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I wasn’t expecting much from Roomies. To be honest, based on the first couple of chapters that I read last year, it didn’t feel like the usual Christina Lauren book that I expected. Fast-forward to last month and I was broken! I picked up the audiobook last month and I was able to get through the first few chapters! Before I knew it, I was hooked, even though Roomies read like women’s fiction than a contemporary romance. Not that there is anything wrong with women’s fiction, it’s just […]

There’s an adorable dog! Plus an alpha male and sexy times! Follow by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

There’s an adorable dog! Plus an alpha male and sexy times! Follow by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. If you have been stalking me on social media, you will know that Follow is the first book that started my Tessa Bailey binge in the last couple of months. Why? Because Tessa Bailey is AMAZING! Follow took me by surprise. I actually picked this book up when it was recommended in one of my book club groups and I immediately went to check the library if it was available. It was! And I didn’t regret my decision. What I love about Follow is that this features a heroine who is not […]

I was Left Speechless! Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely [Audiobook Review]

I was Left Speechless! Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Sometimes there is a book that transports you to a different place. Sometimes there is a book that will make you believe in fate and love and forever. Wanderlust is that book. This is perhaps the first book that made me feel that I was in Paris. WOW. I am without words. Joy and Griffin’s slow burn romance caught me by surprise and it felt so real. I selected Waderlust by Lauren Blakely because I was curious about the narrator. This book is narrated by Grace […]

Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Multiple people from my book club recommended that I read The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata because of the awesome slow burn romance. Unfortunately, this book wasn’t for me and it ended up as a DNF for me. Now let me explain, I am one of those readers who DNF books quickly, but I did TRY my damned best to finish this book and gave it chance after chance. Until ultimately, I finally had to stop torturing myself and end it at 72%. […]

It was a little underwhelming | Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu [Audiobook Review]

It was a little underwhelming | Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Batman: Nightwalker was very interesting. I am not an avid comic book or graphic novel reader, so this book was interesting. I have watched quite a bit of Batman animated movies, so I think I know a little bit of Batman facts. I was expecting to be blown away by Batman: Nightwalker, but I wasn’t. It was surprising to me at least. We get to see a teen Bruce Wayne before he had control of his company. We also meet his friends, Diana (who is Filipina, by […]

Romeo & Juliet, X-Men & Revenge | Renegades by Marissa Meyer Audiobook Review

Romeo & Juliet, X-Men & Revenge | Renegades by Marissa Meyer Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Renegades is a book that I have been putting off for a while. I have been very hesitant in diving in because of the lackluster early reviews. It’s unfortunate, really because Marissa Meyer is one of my favorite YA authors. I finally listened to the audiobook this month and I liked it? So, I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this book. Let’s just say that it is a very sloooooow book. I mean, the world building is amazing! In fact, it’s as vivid as her world […]

Indiana Jones in Space! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner [Audiobook Review]

Indiana Jones in Space! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I FINALLY read it! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner was… enjoyable. Well, it didn’t blow me away as I expected it to, but it wasn’t bad. It was OKAY. Let me explain. Unearthed had a lot of world building to establish. They needed to establish Gaia and of course the Earth during that time. Unearthed also introduced the main players in this adventure and why they were on Gaia in the first place. Which is why there was a lot of telling and […]
