Review: The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

Why Did I Read? I really love fairy tale retellings! I’m such a sucker for them. My Thoughts: Well. My first thought after I finished was THANK GOD I’M FINALLY DONE. That’s not a good sign. I just had so many issues with this and I have come to the conclusion that C.J. Redwine is not for me. I feel rather a black sheep about this, so just know that a lot of people loved this […]

Audiobook Review: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

The Sound: It’s Fiona Hardingham and Steve West. Apparently I listened to three audiobooks in a row narrated by Fiona and two of them also had Steve West. THEY ARE AMAZING. Seriously. Love them. The Story: This is my first Maggie Stiefvater book! And now I know I need to read all her books! I thought the writing in The Scorpio Races was beautiful and I adored the story! I’m a big horse person. I loved horses […]

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 […]

Audiobook Review: Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins

The Sound: I think it was a mistake for me to listen to this one on audio… the whiny aspect of the main character Anna was magnified by actually hearing it. At about 72% I switched over to reading it on my kindle because the MC’s personality grated on me so much and the audio was exacerbating how I felt. The Story: You know, I’ve heard so much about this series and so much about swoony […]

Review: The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall

Review: The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall

Why Did I Read? It sounded really interesting! The synopsis grabbed my attention with the talk of a “dangerous society”. My Thoughts: This is a solid example of how sometimes audiobooks just don’t work well for certain books. There are secret groups, two in particular that oppose each other. The Circle and the… crap I don’t remember the name of the other group but I kept getting the two confused. And that was a problem because I […]
