Audio Book Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

So, I really thought The Diabolic had an interesting premise.  Diabolics aren’t human.  They don’t understand emotions the way normal people do until it’s programmed into them.  Overall, though, I felt the book was a little flat.  Again, the plot was interesting… Continue Reading →

Audio Book Review: Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare

So, I love Simon.  I’ve loved Simon since book one when he was the only one not swayed under Jace’s charm.  I cried when he became a vampire.  I cried again when he became human.  So when I heard that… Continue Reading →

Audio Book Review: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Oh my goodness.  I don’t think I was ready for everything Crooked Kingdom was.  First off, I was so glad to see that they got the same narrators back for the second on.  Those are the voices I associate with the… Continue Reading →

Bookish Post: Meet and Greet with Maggie Stiefvater

She walked in with a ziplock bag of cookies, half a gallon of milk and steel-toed boots.  She’s obviously the rock star of Young Adult books. Who am I talking about?  That would be the one, the only Maggie Stiefvater…. Continue Reading →

Audio Book Review: The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan

I definitely enjoyed The Hammer of Thor way more than the first installment in the series.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, I haven’t found a Riordan book that I haven’t liked, but I did think that the first Magnus Chase… Continue Reading →

Audio Book Review: Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

I have loved most of Rick Riordan’s other series.  So when I heard about this one, I figured I would love it as well.  Sure, it doesn’t really have much to do with the other series (other than a guest… Continue Reading →

Audio Book Review: The Fever Code by James Dashner

I loved this book!  I mean loved.  I was a little nervous because it’s the fifth book in the series and the second prequel.  So needless to say, it’s understandable why I was nervous about it. But!  James Dashner did… Continue Reading →

Audio Book Review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I loved Six of Crows.  I mean, wow!  The characters are hilarious, the story is so intriguing.  Because who doesn’t like a good bank robbery-esque story?  And then you add in the magic and the old London feel to it,… Continue Reading →

Review: Wolfsong by TJ Klune

I wasn’t sure what to think of this book at first.  It seemed a little slow.  The tone seemed to drag, but then I realized that it was because of the main character, Bull.  Once I realized that, I loved… Continue Reading →

AUDIO REVIEW: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

Apollo is mortal. He can’t believe it just as much as the reader can’t. It’s a wild ride watching him deal with his life as a metal alongside his new compatriot, Meg McCaffrey. All the while trying to figure out… Continue Reading →

REVIEW: No Rest for the Wicked by Dane Cobain

I’m all for end-of-the-world, brought on by angels.  Typically they’re the avenging type that comes down from Heaven bringing death and destruction in their wake.  No Rest for the Wicked was an interesting take on angels.  They weren’t from Heaven,… Continue Reading →
