Waking Up with the Duke by Lorraine Heath | Re-read Audiobook Review

Waking Up with the Duke by Lorraine Heath | Re-read Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS   TIMES READ I have read this book multiple times already but this is the first time I listened to it via audiobook.   WHEN I FIRST READ I purchased the paperback way back when it was released in 2011.  Of course, my copy was left in the Ph where all my physical books are (yes, I’m pretty sad about that).   ORIGINAL REVIEW I wasn’t really reviewing books back then so I haven’t really written an actual review for this book but I remember that I LOVED it so much.  Initially, I was a little iffy about the […]

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, […]

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 […]

Foreplay by Sophie Jordan [Book Review]

Foreplay by Sophie Jordan [Book Review]

My Thoughts I was really surprised that I enjoyed Wild (Ivy Chronicles #3) by Sophie Jordan.  So much so that I read the whole series!  I really loved the story of the three best friends: Pepper, Emerson, and Georgia! Foreplay focuses on Pepper’s love story to bartender/owner Reece.  When shy Pepper finds out that the love of her life, her best friend’s brother breaks up with his serious girlfriend, she sees it as a sign!  She has been in love with Hunter since she was in high school and now wants him all to herself.  But wait!  She has no experience in […]

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Unique.  I couldn’t put it down! A must read!” Scarlet is the second book in the Lunar Chronicles series and it is my favorite (I’ve also read Cress) so far!  I absolutely love this retelling of Little Red Riding Hood!  Ms. Meyer has a way of merging both stories – Cinder ( a retelling of Cinderella)  and Scarlet.  It is seamlessly done and very well written. Scarlet focuses on the story of  Scarlet Benoit (Little Red Riding Hood) and Wolf in relation to the whole series.  Scarlet’s grandmother, Michelle Benoit an Imperial Pilot (or something) has gone missing […]

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 […]

Romancing the Duke by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

Romancing the Duke by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts Tessa Dare has done it again!  Romancing the Duke, the first book in her Castles Ever After series is an awesome read!  I have been reading Tessa Dare’s backlist and I must say she has become an auto-click author for me! Romancing the Duke is about Isolde Goodnight, a daughter of a well-known children’s author who has been gifted a castle by her godfather.  She has been left destitute by her father and had nowhere to go until she got word about her inheritance.  She immediately embarks on a journey to claim her castle without knowing that said […]
