Review: Shadow Run by AdriAnne Strickland and Michael Miller

Why Did I Read? Let’s just say I was looking forward to this book since I first heard it announced and marketed as Firefly meets Dune! I was so on board! My Thoughts: This was a really action packed and thrilling sci-fi ride! I can definitely see the parallels to Firefly and Dune. Our spaceship in question is the Kaitan and our main cast the crew of the Kaitan. I absolutely loved each member on board the Kaitan and all the crew relationships. Everyone is […]

Review: The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron

Why Did I Read? I really loved Sharon Cameron’s The Dark Unwinding duology so I was super excited to hear about her new release! My Thoughts: Firstly, this was completely different than what I was expecting! I guess I’m not entirely sure what I expected, but I was picturing more fantasy/dystopia and it was so much more! I don’t want to go into too much detail because I think it was really fun discovering all the twists as […]

My Thoughts: Marissa Meyer is the queen of writing the most magnetic characters and the best friendships and relationships. I have missed these characters so so much and reading the short stories was so much fun! I read them in order and did NOT […]

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: Winter by Marissa Meyer

The Sound: I’ve mentioned last week in my series review of Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress how much I LOVE the narrator and that obviously has not changed. This audio book is the longest I’ve listened to. TWENTY-THREE AND A HALF HOURS. I loved every second of it and fell into such a book slump after this book because I not only missed the world and the characters but I missed their voices. Rebecca Soler is amazing. She captured each character perfectly […]
