Audiobook Mini Reviews: Timekeeper by Tara Sims and Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys

I really didn’t know much about Timekeeper going into it but oh I was so pleasantly surprised as I got swept up in this story! It ended up being my FIRST five star read of the year! I’m also so glad I listened to it on audio because the narration was so amazing! I seriously loved it. In Timekeeper we are in an alternate London where there are clock towers that regulate time — literally. If something happens […]

Audiobook Mini Reviews: Under A Painted Sky, The Burning Sky, All Played Out

I hadn’t read anything by Stacey Lee before, but right after finishing this, I put her other books on hold at the library! I really enjoyed this one and the audio was very good. To begin with, I am all about YA Westerns. Love it. I can never get enough of it and the Oregon Trail never gets old to me. I think the very bright shining spot of this book was the amazing friendship between Sam […]

Audiobook Mini Reviews: Salt to the Sea, Starflight, The Girl of Fire and Thorns Stories

Salt to the Sea was such a beautiful historical fiction story! I absolutely loved it and as this was my first book of Ruta Sepetys, I am definitely eager to read her previous books! It was told in four different POVs and it never once seemed like too many POVs. I loved hearing from each character, each voice was distinct and provided that unique aspect of seeing the story from that particular character’s position. I thought […]

Mini Reviews: A Darker Shade of Magic, A Gathering of Shadows, Him

I loved this one! It was really everything that I love in fantasy. It was so unique with all the different Londons and I absolutely loved watching them unfold and learning more about each one and the magic involved and that was intrinsic to each. Besides the uniqueness of the magic, I absolutely loved the characters. We have Kell, who can travel between Londons, who has a fabulous coat with many, many, layers and is adopted into […]

Audiobook Mini Reviews: Heart of Betrayal, All Fall Down, As You Wish

When I merely liked The Kiss of Deception and was very meh about it, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Heart of Betrayal. I already felt like a black sheep for not falling in LOVE with The Kiss of Deception but everyone assured me that Heart of Betrayal was so epic and amazing. Well. Just shun me now because I disliked Heart of Betrayal more than its predecessor. 🙁 I still feel like this series is so fantasy light. I kept […]
