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 […]

Dear Jenny Han…

Dear Jenny Han…

So recently I binge read the entire To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before series by Jenny Han. Here’s the thing. I am and always will be a fantasy gal. Contemporaries aren’t my go to so I was a little nervous heading into the series. I couldn’t have been more  surprised by how much I loved it! I had so many thoughts and feelings as I read through these books and I think the best way for […]

Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Why Did I Read? It sounds so magical and exciting! It sounded just like something I’d love. My Thoughts: Caraval is seriously one of the most hyped books of 2017. It was hyped last year at BEA and the hype only grew as more people read and raved about it. I really meant to get to this way earlier, it was one of my top books from BEA that I wanted! Anyway, I’m kind of conflicted […]

Review: The Long Game by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Why Did I Read? I have been anticipating this since I read The Fixer last year! There were questions that needed to be answered! My Thoughts: (There will be no spoilers for The Long Game but may be a SLIGHT–very very slight– spoiler for The Fixer in my review!) I really enjoyed The Fixer, I thought it was a great political intrigue thriller and kept me glued to the pages. However, its sequel just plain blew it out of the water! […]

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 […]
