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 […]

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins | Audiobook Review

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “And may the odds be forever in your favor…” I don’t know how to start reviewing this book at all!  I have been putting off reading this book since – well, forever and I regret it!  It was a few years ago when I started reading this book but did not finish it and last Christmas, I actually bought a hardbound set of the Trilogy.  It wasn’t until last week (YES LAST WEEK!) that I decided to try it in audiobook format.  I wasn’t disappointed. Although I had seen the movie before, it hadn’t ruined my reading Hunger […]

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson | Audiobook Review

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “A delightful surprise.  Not Disney’s Peter Pan.” I have heard about the book Tiger Lily last year and that it was good.  I didn’t really bother with it since I wasn’t really into reading YA back then.  When I saw the audiobook available at LAPL, I decided to give it a go and listen to it.  I was blown away.  This book was a delightful surprise! This is the first book that I read by Jodi Lynn Anderson and I enjoyed it so much.  It is intelligently written and it is a good retelling of the classic story Peter […]

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 […]

Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “A fantastic ending to an awesome series” Listening to Clockwork Princess was gripping, emotionally touching, and amazing!  The third and last book in the Infernal Devices Trilogy was not a letdown.  Sure, it had the signs of closing and resolving all issues of the series but it didn’t disappoint.  If you followed my review from the Clockwork Angel to the Clockwork Prince, you would know how psyched I am about this book and this series. Clockwork Princess starts off a couple of months after the end of Clockwork Prince where we were introduced to Cecily Herondale, Will’s youngest […]

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “I can’t stop listening!” Clockwork Prince is the second book in the Infernal Devices series and continues right after Clockwork Angel ends.  This book is part of the series and cannot be read as a stand alone. The story picks up right after the battle at the Institute and Charlotte and the group are picking up the pieces.  At this point, the Enclave is involved and so is Consul Wayland.  He is now regretting his decision to appoint Charlotte as the head of the London Institute and Benedict Lightwood is pushing the Consul to remove Charlotte and appoint him […]

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare blew me away!  I had read The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones last year but I was let down after all the hype and I did not continue reading the series.  However, one of my co-workers told me that I would LOVE Clockwork Angel because it is not contemporary but historical.  When the opportunity came, I decided to get the audiobook instead. Clockwork Angel is the first book in the prequel series The Infernal Devices and introduces us to a few new characters and gives us a glimpse of characters appearing in City […]
