Prodigy by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Prodigy, the second book in the Legend series, picks up right after the first one, Legend ends – with both June and Day on the run from the Republic.  They make their way to Las Vegas, where the Patriots (the rebel group out to overthrow the Republic) are supposed to be based.  With Day injured, barely able to escape his execution, they meet up with the leader of the Patriots, and also meet up with Tess and Kaylee!  At the same time, the Elector Primo dies and his young son (very young son) takes over as the current […]

Legend by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

Legend by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “A surprising read!” I really didn’t have any expectations when I started reading this book.  In fact, I thought it was going to be another Divergent/Hunger Games dystopia book and thought it would be too cookie-cutter for my taste.  BUT I was really surprised that I enjoyed it!  Sure, there were a few flaws that made me rate it 4 stars but….. Day! Legend is really full of kickass, badass, fighter FEMALES!  In this book alone, 3 were prominent fighters.  Not to mention that the heroine, June IS a freaking child fighting prodigy!  At this point, Legend diverted from […]

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 […]

Uninvited by Sophie Jordan | Audiobook Review

Uninvited by Sophie Jordan | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Interesting enough” Uninvited is the new YA Sci-Fi/Dystopian series by Sophie Jordan with similarities to the movie Minority Report with Tom Cruise.  Except with teens.  And hormones.  And spoiled brats?  Anway, I was interested in the premise – a futuristic society governed by a company that had coerced convinced the government that they are able to isolate the HTS (Homicidal Tendency Syndrome) gene, identify the individuals carrying that gene and stopping them even before they commit the actual act.  Interesting, right?  Well, I thought it was a little bit interesting at first but then it started to become a […]

Hubby Reads After the End by Amy Plum

Hubby Reads After the End by Amy Plum

Hubby Reads is a feature where I ask my hubby to share his thoughts on the books that I made him read. Because I was curious about this book After the End, I decided to suggest this book to Boss.  He read it before I did so I begged him for spoilers.  He wasn’t concerned about spoiler alerts BUT seeing as he does not really discuss the books he read in detail, I wasn’t really worried.  I did read the book after him (well listened to the audiobook) so I was able to ask him questions after. Again, I will […]

The Selection Series by Kiera Cass | Audiobook Review

The Selection Series by Kiera Cass | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts Please note that I am only reviewing the three books (The Selection, The Elite, and The One) “I hated it but I had to finish it!” Ah, The Selection series.  Where shall I start?  Perhaps I shall start with how I did not like the series at all BUT I was sucked in and HAD to finish the blasted thing because I hoped, in the end, America would choose Aspen and just hang Maxon?!  So yes, it is that predictable. I decided to go ahead and review the whole series rather than review each book.  I mean, each book can […]

Cress by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Cress by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Before starting my review, I would like to apologize to my readers for posting a blank post for this review a few weeks back.  With my pending vacation (I am still on said vacay), I was unaware that I set this review to post when I haven’t even written it!  So, please pardon my flightiness! My Thoughts Warning: This review may contain spoilers Since I read Scarlet, I have been super excited to read Cress because let’s face it, Thorn is a very interesting character!  In fact, I was hoping that Thorn would be the hero in this book.  I was not […]
