The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd |  Audiobook Review

The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Gripping and creepy.  A perfect combination” The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd is the first book in the Madman’s Daughter series and is a classic retelling of H.G. Wells’ book The Island of Dr. Moreau and tells the story of Juliet Moreau, Dr. Moreau’s daughter.  Although I have not read H.G. Wells’ book, I went to Wikipedia and checked out the plot before listening to the audiobook. Gripping and creepy, The Madman’s Daughter is a story about finding the truth in a web of lies.  Juliet Moreau, the daughter of the disgraced Dr. Moreau, is working as a […]

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green | Audiobook Review

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Heart wrenching.  Lovely.  Okay” I have been dragging my feet literally when it came to reading this book.  See, I thought this book was going to be too overly sentimental.  Plus, I have never read any book by John Green before.  I also thought this was going to be like A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks.  I was right, in a way.  When I was able to purchase the audiobook (via an Amazon Local Promo) last week, I decided to listen.  Initially, I had thought I would be listening to the book over the course of a week […]

When the Rogue Returns by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

When the Rogue Returns by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

While I was a little bit disappointed with What the Duke Desires, the first book in The Duke’s Men Series, I was blown away by When the Rogue Returns.  The premise caught my eye when I read it a few months back and I couldn’t wait.  I wasn’t disappointed.  I love the story of Victor and Isa and how they found each other again after 10 years.  It wasn’t as emotional as some of Sabrina’s other books but I think it had a lot heart. We first meet Victor Cale in What the Duke Desires and I found myself being intrigued by […]

Betrothed by Elizabeth Elliott | Book Review

Betrothed by Elizabeth Elliott | Book Review

Another favorite!  I obtained this book while browsing a local second hand bookstore back in the Philippines and bought it when it became available via ebook.  Sadly, I left my paperback in the PH and hopefully, it will still remain in good shape. This book starts off with Baron Guy of Montague arriving at Halford Hall and spotting Lady Claudia.  Guy is immediately intrigued by her and plans to make her his bride.  That is, until Baron Lonsdale hatches a plot to keep Guy from obtaining Halford Hall at a fair price.  Unfortunately, this plot ends up with Guy and […]

Stranger in My Arms by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

Stranger in My Arms by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

I have read and re-read this book multiple times and it has never failed to entertain me.  I love the story and to be honest, I have read at least once in each book cover design.  Here are the covers: This is a unique story, I thought and I never expected the twist in the end when it was revealed who the real Hunter was.  When it was revealed that the stranger was Hunter’s half brother, I felt that it was a little bit unsettling to a certain extent but I still enjoyed reading this story. The story starts off […]
