Audiobook Mini Reviews: The Secret Life of Violet Grant, Tiny Little Thing and Rose Under Fire

My Thoughts: This was my first introduction to this author and I definitely want to read the rest of her backlist! This historical fiction had dual timelines alternating between the early 1900s and 1960s and it was so riveting! We follow Vivian Schuyler as she strives to earn a place as a journalist for the Metropolitan magazine and she receives a mysterious briefcase in the mail. It turns out it belonged to her aunt, Violet Grant, […]

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 […]
