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 […]

Review: The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron

Why Did I Read? I really loved Sharon Cameron’s The Dark Unwinding duology so I was super excited to hear about her new release!

I don’t want to go into too much detail because I think it was really fun discovering all the twists as […]

My Thoughts: As a whole, I definitely enjoyed this one. I’m actually having a hard time putting my thoughts together because there are aspects I REALLY liked but also things I really didn’t. For the most part though, this was an enjoyable […]

DNF Review: The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

I am very much a black sheep when it comes to this book and I was surprised and very sad to have to DNF it. This was one of my highly anticipated books of 2016! There is magic, Russian culture and a magical duel to the death! It sounded so epic and wonderful and I was just so excited for this story. I was sorely disappointed and no one is sadder about it than me. Firstly, I […]

Audiobook Review: Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan

The Sound: I really liked the audio narrators! I always like when there are two narrators for a dual POV book and I thought both did such a great job. They definitely fit how I pictured the characters to sound — for example, Luna is a bit naive and the narrator for her definitely sounded young and innocent. The Story: I had been really excited for this fantasy and I have to say… it fell a […]
