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 […]

It reminded me of a mix between the movie the Village and historical Salem witch trials and I was really enjoying the feel of the […]

Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Why Did I Read? It sounds so magical and exciting! It sounded just like something I’d love. My Thoughts: Caraval is seriously one of the most hyped books of 2017. It was hyped last year at BEA and the hype only grew as more people read and raved about it. I really meant to get to this way earlier, it was one of my top books from BEA that I wanted! Anyway, I’m kind of conflicted […]
