Audiobook Review: Front Lines by Michael Grant

The Sound: I really liked this narrator! I thought she did a great job for each POV that we were in. No complaints here! The Story: I really thought I’d like this one more than I actually did. 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 […]

Audiobook Review: The Mystery of Hollow Places by Rebecca Podos

The Sound: I was not a fan of the narrator. There was this odd lilting tone that made it sound like the MC was super whiny all the time. During the voices for other characters, it was fine but since the book is in first person, all the inner dialogue and well, everything when other people weren’t talking, just GRATED on me. So… maybe I wouldn’t have disliked this book as much if it weren’t for […]

Audiobook Review: Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan

The Sound: The narration was decent and enjoyable. I thought the narrator did a good job with infusing the emotion of the main character in her voice. The Story: So, I love myself a good revenge story. Mix in a covered up attack and murder of an entire cruise ship full of people? I am so in. I was really eager to see what exactly was going on with the attack and how Frances was going […]

Mini Reviews (1): Audiobook edition

This one was really interesting because I really wasn’t sure what to expect! The premise of The Naturals is that the FBI has a group of teens that are “naturals” at certain things. (To be honest, this part confused me a tad because I was like, are these abilities supernatural? Answer: no, they aren’t.) Cassie, our MC, is a natural profiler. She gets recruited and meets a cast of other teens who also have abilities such as a […]

Audiobook Review: Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

The Sound: I thought the narrator Phoebe Strole was fantastic. I feel like all the emotion was transferred so well into Emmy’s voice! I loved listening to this one. The Story: This story is so interesting because the situation is just so.. well, messed up. Emmy and Oliver were best friends as kids and next door neighbors — until Oliver’s dad kidnapped him and everyone’s lives changed. Now, ten years later, he’s back. Everyone wants him […]
