Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Finally!  I finished the Throne of Glass sequel a year after I read the first book, Throne of Glass!  And I regret NOT reading this (or listening) book ASAP!  Why am I so behind with this series?  I mean, Crown of Midnight DEVASTATED ME! Devastated you? See, something happens here TWICE that I can’t even…!  I mean, both really left me reeling and I can’t seem to move on from that.  And this happens a little bit past the halfway mark.  And then it gets […]

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Re-Listen Review

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Re-Listen Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I had read this book a year ago and I liked it.  In fact, I gave it 4 hearts BUT I did not review it at all, and I also did not binge read the series.  To tell you the truth, I have no idea why it took me this long to review it.  It does help that I re-read (re-listened) this a few days before the end of the year.  I know it’s old news but if you’re like me who doesn’t read […]

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs | Audiobook Review

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS I have heard a lot of great things about Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs so I was pretty psyched when I started listening to the audiobook.  Unfortunately, I was a little put off.  Miss Peregrine’s did not live up to my expectations. Let’s talk about the genre. First off, it was marketed as a scary middle-grade novel but it just wasn’t!   I honestly don’t have any issues for the way the plot went, but it was marketed as a spine-tingling fantasy.  With the creepy looking girl on the cover, to the creepy pictures included in […]

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley | Audiobook Review

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Magonia is the debut book written by Maria Dahvana Headley and starts a new fantasy series of birdlike beings living in the clouds, in a world called Magonia.  The heroine, Aza Ray has a disease.  A rare disease that only she has.  A disease that has kept her from breathing normally.  Until her 16th birthday… I was intrigued by this story when I first heard about it.  The book cover is also eye-catching so I decided to listen to it via audiobook.  I love that it is read by two narrators, the female reads Aza Ray’s part and […]

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “I don’t know how to review this book at all!” I finished listening to Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge via audiobook a couple of months ago and my initial thought was:  “I don’t know what to say.”  I mean, at this point, I think I am in a love/hate relationship with the book for many, many reasons.  Crimson Bound is a standalone book and is also a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.  It is not in any way connected or a companion novel to Cruel Beauty but it has the same darkness and themes.  I admit that […]

Graceling by Kristin Cashore | Audiobook Review

Graceling by Kristin Cashore | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “This audiobook is freaking awesome!” Have you ever read a book featuring FEMALE assassins?  No, scratch that.  Have you ever read a Young Adult book featuring assassins?  I know I’m late in the game but this is the first YA book that I read featuring female assassins and I was blown away!  This story is amazingly well written and unique!  Plus, this is a stand-alone book and does not end on a cliffhanger!  What’s more, there are no freaking LOVE TRIANGLES!  Just a love between a prince and an assassin.  This book has adventure, magic, romance, courage, danger, […]

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 […]
