Audiobook Review: The Upside of Unrequited Love by Becky Albertalli

The Sound: I thought the narrator Arielle DeLisle did a fantastic job! Her voice for Molly was pretty much how I would imagine it and she did great distinctions between different characters. I’d definitely listen to other audiobooks by her! The Story: Let me start off by saying there was quite a bit I liked in The Upside of Unrequited Love but I just really wasn’t a fan of the romance and a lot of aspects surrounding it […]

Review: The Beast Is An Animal by Peternelle Van Arsdale

Why Did I Read? I was drawn in from the beautiful cover and soul eaters — it just sounded creepy and totally intriguing. My Thoughts: I’m just fairly disappointed after finishing the book. It started off really well — it had a thrilling/creepy atmosphere and I was drawn into the premise. It reminded me of a mix between the movie the Village and historical Salem witch trials and I was really enjoying the feel of the […]

Review: Hold Me Like A Breath by Tiffany Schmidt

However, I think I enjoyed it more than most! The premise really drew me in — crime families dealing in illegal organ transplants and organ trafficking? I’m in! I thought the set up was really interesting because while these crime families are making a lot […]

Mini Reviews: Acid, Ember in the Ashes, Kiss of Deception

Fiona Hardingham narrates this one and she is like my all time favorite narrator. That was probably one of the best parts of this listen for me. Acid is about a girl named Jenna Strong, who has just been broken out of prison by a group she knows nothing about, and now she is on the run from ACID – a crazy police force that basically runs the city. I felt like this one had a lot […]

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 […]
