Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi | Audiobook Review

Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Just like Heroes, the TV series” First of, let me just say that the covers of this series are just AH-MAY-ZING!  I mean, just WOW! The Shatter Me series is 3 books and 2 novellas (haven’t read those yet) is an audiobook I picked out when I was waiting for my holds to be available from the library.  I really did not have many expectations of this series but the blurb sounded really interesting, and did I mention those gorgeous covers?!  When I started listening to it,  I was taken in by the awesome narration (more on that […]

The Earl’s Mistress by Liz Carlisle | Book Review

The Earl’s Mistress by Liz Carlisle | Book Review

My Thoughts “A little bit shocking!” Isabella Aldridge is in dire straights.  After being let go from her latest post, she is having problems landing a new one, owing to the fact that she is very pretty.  Her last interview did not go very well when she was propositioned by the Earl of Hepplewood to be his mistress instead of his governess.  Spitting mad, she refuses the offer, no matter that she still has two siblings to raise and to protect from her lecherous cousin.  Still desperate, she rethinks the mistress situation and asks help from her former employer, who […]

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo | Audiobook Review

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts I’ve heard about Shadow and Bone a while back but was mildly interested.  I had begun reading more YA books by then via audiobooks and I enjoy that format when “reading” YA books.  The Boss, who works out of state, decided that he wanted to read more books on his downtown and asked for recommendations.  I honestly shove more YA recommendations his way which he reads without question and even finishes the whole series before I do!  Because of that, I decided to go ahead and read Shadow and Bone since he said it was OK. Let me […]

Evermore by Alyson Noël | Audiobook Review

Evermore by Alyson Noël | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Meh…unbelievable” I don’t know how to start this review at all.  Having said that, I know that I am not going to pick up the sequels – ever (pun intended)!  If you do want to try this out, check out your local library (which I thankfully did) to see if you like it. The story starts off pretty strong.  Ever Bloom (right?!) is the only survivor of a fatal car crash and she moves to Laguna Beach, California to live with her father’s twin sister.  The result of the car crash?  She can see auras and can read […]

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 […]

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare | Book Review

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare | Book Review

I started reading this book because I knew I wanted to read it before seeing the movie (and I did the right thing!  More about the movie in different post). This book was a slow start for me.  In fact, I had to force myself to finish reading it in time for the movie.  It wasn’t that I did not enjoy it, I did but the first few chapters did not catch my interest at all.  I remember starting to read this a few years back but I couldn’t push through. That being said, once I got into the story, […]
