Audiobook Review: Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

Audiobook Review: Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

Going into this, I honestly wasn’t sure I was going to like it. First of all, it was really over-hyped. Which tend to be the kind of books I end up not liking. Second, the negative reviews I read scared me away. A few things I heard about this book that made me not want to read it: Despite the title, it’s not actually about zombies. Or Alice in Wonderland. Gena Showalter tried too hard to make the prose sound like […]

Audiobook Review: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

Audiobook Review: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

The darkest minds tend to hide behind the most unlikely faces. Why oh why did I wait so long to read this book?! I was afraid to pick it up because of the hype surrounding it. (I’m sure you all know by now that I tend to be the black sheep with those kind of books!) But I was pleasantly surprised! The beginning was EPIC. The scene where the orange kid whispers in the PSF’s ear and the PSF lifts […]

Audiobook Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Audiobook Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

So, I finally read this book. Took me long enough, eh? It didn’t really blow me away, but I did really enjoy it. I must admit that this book is very difficult to review as I don’t have much to say other than it was beautiful and heartbreaking! John Green’s writing style is epic. He makes even the most mundane things seem interesting, and that was what made me enjoy this so much. There was hardly anything going on for […]

Audiobook Review: Rebel Heart by Moira Young

Audiobook Review: Rebel Heart by Moira Young

Moira Young is fabulous at world building! I love the world in the Dust Lands series and I was more than ready to dive back into it, bad grammar and all. (Which is why I refused to read it, I actually bought the audio because my library didn’t have it!) I still enjoyed it, but it didn’t quite have the magic that Blood Red Road had. I didn’t feel like there was much happening plot-wise and it was just lacking something […]

Audiobook Review: Blood Red Road by Moira Young

Audiobook Review: Blood Red Road by Moira Young

Gosh, I don’t even know where to start! Even with all the hype, this book was so much more than I expected! I mean, I love dystopians. And I pretty much like most of the ones I read. But this one pushed and shoved itself right to the top of that list! It’s the best dystopian I’ve read since The Hunger Games! The world building. Ahhh, so fabulous! It was CINEMATIC. I had absolutely no problem picturing everything in my […]

Audiobook Review: Legend by Marie Lu

Audiobook Review: Legend by Marie Lu

As far as dystopians go, Legend rates among the top of all the ones I’ve read. There was plenty of action; not once did I get bored, because there was little to no lull in the plot. Something exciting was always happening! Danger and suspense abound; secrets, lies and government corruption! Oh my! It was everything I love in a dystopian novel (and why it’s one of my favorite genres). In my mind, I make a silent promise to my brother’s killer: […]
