Hey, look, it’s Fry. I’m technically back into the reviewing groove after taking some time off. I hope you’ve missed me, or, you know, at least noticed I was gone. I’m going to take over our Manga Monday feature for the time being from our lovely friend Carol, who had to leave blogging for the time being due to some personal reasons. I hope at some point she can come back! With that, I am going to do things a little different than Carol did. She reviewed a whole series. I’m going to review a volume at a time, relishing in… Read more »

I liked Nightshades. It was a very quick read. For this review, I am going to do something different. I think for such a fast short read my review is going to be short and sweet. I am going to list the things liked and the things I didn’t like about Nightshades.   Things I liked about Nightshades: It was short and therefore a very quick read. I liked the different take on vampires. These are not shiny misunderstood beings. The vampires are just like humans in a way. Some vampires are evil and some just want to do the… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

I tried to read this book several times and just never could get into it. I mean I really tried. I feel like I have been reading this book for forever. I felt like if I could just get into then I wouldn’t have to DNF it so I put it on the back burner for a while. So, I decided to go ahead and use an audible credit and give The Shadow Queen another chance. I can say I am proud of myself for finishing The Shadow Queen this time. This audiobook felt like it took forever to get… Read more »

The first thing I said when I finished this audiobook was, “thank goodness I made it to the end”. So, I first tried to pick up The Marked Girl when I received a copy from the publisher about a month ago.  Sadly, I just couldn’t get into this book so I put it to the side.  Then when I saw the audiobook was on Audible, I was like perfect now I can have someone read it to me. I was hoping maybe that would make my reading experience go faster. Again sadly that wasn’t the case. Amanda Dolan the narrator… Read more »

This book took me a while to get through, not because it was bad, but it started off very slow for me and life kept taking me away from it. However, once I got past the first few chapters the adventure started to pick up. How long did it take to read I can hear you asking, sadly far too long as this was handed to me by the publisher at BEA some time ago. The main characters are the rouge Rodrick and his sword, Hrym. How can a sword be a character, well when it talks, schemes with his… Read more »

I don’t know why this book took me so long to read.  I think it was because I was going through a bit of slump last month.   When I saw My Lady Jane was out on audiobook I decided to use my audible credit and give it a go.  I can honestly the audiobook did not disappoint.  I ended absolutely loving this book.  I listened to My Lady Jane in the car and in my office at work.  I know there were times people were staring at me because I could not stop laughing.  This book was so funny there… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] Ruined by Amy Tintera

I think this book is more of a 3.5 star kind of read but I have rounded up because I did like the ending so much. I listened to this audiobook and maybe things got lost in translation but it was hard for me get into it at first. I really had to power through. Let me say not because of the narrator, Emily Rankin does decent job making the story come alive. Once, I got to the middle of the book the rest of the story was addicting. I flew right through it. Ruined isn’t anything new in YA… Read more »

[Review] Marked In Flesh by Anne Bishop

The more books I read in The Others series the more I fall into even more like with this series. Marked in Flesh, the latest installment, had it all: touching moments, on the edge of seat thrills, moments of laughter, and even the seeds to a future romance.     Marked in Flesh was all about “how much human should they keep.” Not just human survivors but human customs and human goods as well. I think the real question in this story is, who are the real monsters? It is easy for humans to be scared of things that go… Read more »

I got an E-ARC of Into the Dim but there are just not enough hours in the day; so I decided to buy the audiobook and listen to this book while I was at work. I am glad I did because I really really enjoyed Into the Dim. It was full action, romance, and of course, time travel. I can say I liked this book even more because it was narrated by one of my favorite audiobook narrators: Amanda Ronconi. For those who don’t know who Amanda Ronconi is she narrates adult romance author Molly Harper’s novels. I just love… Read more »

[Review]The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

I think the theme of this book should be:   I kept thinking that over and again as Nix broods over and over again about her father.   Nix’s dad is a time traveler. He can take any map from any time and place and sail there. It is about all about belief and abilities. Nix was born in Honolulu in 1868. Her mother died giving birth to her while Nix’s dad was out traveling. Now, for as long as Nix can remember he is obsessed with getting back to the time before Nix’s mom met her dad because he sure… Read more »
