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: And I Darken by Kiersten White

Why Did I Read? Vlad the Impaler story with a badass female lead? Historical fiction? I was so in. My Thoughts: I have really complicated feelings about this book. I really liked most parts of it but some parts really dragged and left me feeling underwhelmed. The book starts off with our main character Lada as a young child growing up — we see that from a young age she is already fierce, strong and determined. […]

It takes place in an alternate history where women are allowed to fight in WWII. Firstly, I love historical fiction. Secondly, this premise sounds awesome! The story is told in three different POV. One is a naive girl […]

Review: Falconer by Elizabeth May

Why Did I Read? Okay so when I first heard about The Falconer coming out a few years ago, I was so excited and wouldn’t stop talking about it. So much so that Betty was super nice and snagged a copy for me when she was at ALAMW that year (thank you!) And guess what. I JUST now read it. Major fail on my part! My Thoughts: I have finally found a new series to fall in love with! […]

Audiobook Review: A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

The Sound: I really enjoyed the narrator for this one! I think it helped set up just the right atmosphere for the book because her voice of Grace seemed spot on to me. She really brought to life all the secondary characters. I think my enjoyment level would definitely have taken a dive if I had read and not listened to it on audio. The Story: That being said, while I enjoyed the audio narration, the […]
