Let’s Travel through Time with The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I didn’t really hear a lot of buzz about The Girl from Everywhere.  This book is a prime example of cover love since that was the reason why I actually picked this book up!  I mean, LOOK AT THE COVER?! I was delightfully surprised by this book, though.  This book has a unique plot, at least something that I haven’t read about before! Oh, tell me more! The Girl from Everywhere is mostly set in Hawaii in 1884!  Honolulu, to be exact and I absolutely loved the unusual setting! […]

Quick Reviews: Fire, The Cage, Shiver

Quick Reviews: Fire, The Cage, Shiver

For this quick review post, I decided to review the books that I DNF’d last year.  Incidentally, I really didn’t have a lot that I DNF’d last year so I promise, my quick reviews aren’t going to be about books that I DNF’d or that I hated.  I know some of these are fan favorites, but they just didn’t work for me. I am listing down 3 reasons why I DNF’d them.  Ready? GO! 3 REASONS WHY I DNF’d I honestly was expecting A LOT with Fire.  Since it is a companion for Graceling, which I absolutely LOVED, I came into this book […]

Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner | Book & Audiobook Review

Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner | Book & Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I was soooo excited when the last book of the Starbound series came out!  I mean THIS series really started my love for all things YA: These Broken Stars and This Shattered World blew me away and I expected to be blown away by the series finale. Didn’t you like the book at all? Don’t get me wrong, I actually liked the Their Fractured Light, I just wasn’t blown away by it.  It’s hard to admit that one of your favorite series didn’t blow you […]

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis | Audiobook Review

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. Disclaimer:  I listened to the audiobook way back in August so I am not 100% certain about most of the details, but I will review this to the best of my memory. Not another Snow White re-telling! I know many reviewers have compared Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis to Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles but I promise you, it isn’t!  Sure, it has the same themes as TLC but there is a marked difference. Tell me more! Obviously, Princess Snow is missing and she is […]

The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey | Audiobook Review

The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. Ok, I admit it, I have never heard of The Fifth Wave until I saw the trailer a couple of months ago.  If you know me, you would know that I am so into aliens.  In fact, one of my favorite shows is Ancient Aliens, but I digress.  Let’s just say that I am very fascinated by aliens. What is it about? The Fifth Wave is about an alien attack on Earth.  The attacks come in waves; the first wave: total blackout; […]

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Book & Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. I have to really honest about this book, Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff and admit that it took me a while to finish reading it.  And as much as I loved it, and was blown away by it, I still had a hard time getting into the book.  In fact, this is the first book that I read in this format because I thought, hey, I wouldn’t be interested in reading a book in email or chat form. What makes the book […]

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS So The Lunar Chronicles has come to an end and I have bittersweet feelings about it.  I guess this just stems out of me not wanting this series to ever end!  I mean, there are still loose ends to tie! The moment I finished listening to this book, I had book hangover and I couldn’t wait to talk to someone about it.  Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone who read the book and hubby still hasn;t finished reading it.  Plus he is no fun with book discussions because he just grunts and says “ok” or “it’s good” so… Anyway, […]
