The Sound: As stated in my previous review of the first book, The Thief, I love Steve West! Will always be a fave narrator for me — so much emotion in his narrating! The Story: The switch from first person to third person POV caught me a bit off guard but it is necessary in this sequel as there are so many different things going on in different locations. I don’t think I disliked the POV switch […]

The Book Cake Tag

I was tagged by Morgan at the Bookish Beagle to do the Book Cake Tag! I thought it was such a brilliant idea!

Unfortunately I haven’t watched that many episodes of it yet because they got taken off of Netflix for […]

Audiobook Review: The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner

The Sound: When I saw that this series was going to be narrated by Steve West, I requested it asap! Steve West is one of my all time favorite narrators! He just does such a fantastic job not only with inflections but bringing each character to life. I am never lost in the dialogue. I think his narration adds another layer to the story. On top of all that, his voice is just so soothing to […]
