I am big fan of A.G. Howard’s Splintered Series. When I saw The Architect of Song was now available on audiobook I bought it and started listening to it right then. I was not disappointed by this audiobook. I really enjoy a good audiobook that can distract me from the frustrations of say traffic while I am driving in my car. It is definitely the type of audiobook that is a great escape from the monotony of my day. The Architect of Song is a gothic romance that swept me right up into the story and I enjoyed every minute… Read more »

There are two things that I will always watch or read about: Victorian London and Jack the Ripper. When I saw the synopsis for Stalking the Jack Ripper I was like sign me up because I am definitely reading that book! I was sold on this book by the synopsis alone, I mean who doesn’t want to read about a young woman of society bucking tradition to become a female forensic scientist. Her first case study just happens to be the Jack the Ripper. I thought I couldn’t want to read this anymore than I already did then they released… Read more »

[Review] Unknown by Wendy Higgins

There is something truly terrifying about an apocalypse setting that scares and fascinates me at the same time.  I think Wendy Higgins did a good job of building a truly scary world in Unknown.  I finished this book in two days.  I only put it down to sleep.  Even when I put the book down I still kept think about how frightening this book actually was.     Unknown starts out like any other contemporary love story.  A girl grows up with her brother and his best friend.  Then the brother’s best friend becomes her friend as well.  Of course,… Read more »

I just have to say Defending Taylor didn’t disappoint. I read this book in one day. It is one of those short breezy books that grab you and don’t let go until the end.       I once heard someone I think it was another adult, say they didn’t like read because the parents are never around or they look stupid. I didn’t know what to say to that because it is true the parents are hardly ever around in YA. You know what I say now: so what. Even in Gilmore Girls Rory had to go off on… 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 »

[Review] The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout

First off I have to say, oh man, this book was good.  A coworker of mine asked me what this book was about the other day.  I said it was a coming of age with some romance thrown in.  She said it sounded predictable.  You know what that is not bad thing.  I like that this book was predictable and I knew that no matter what happened in between the heroine was going to make it through. The Problem With Forever is about a girl named Mallory and Mallory has had really tragic past.  She was a foster kid who… 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 »

[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 »

[Audiobook Review] Freaky Days by Amanda M. Lee

I admit I picked this book up on a whim. It was on sale on Audible and I have been trying to give more indie publications a shot, so I thought what the heck. The cover was definitely a bit freaky and I wasn’t sure what to expect so back, to my what the heck attitude. I began listening to Freaky Days. Imagine my surprise when I actually really liked this book.   I even quote parts of it to my friends and coworkers now. Freaky Days is a murder mystery set in a traveling circus. But, Mystic Caravan isn’t just… 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 »
