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: […]

Audiobook Review: Abandon by Meg Cabot

Audiobook Review: Abandon by Meg Cabot

First of all, this book is NOT about the Underworld. It’s about a girl who spends 20 minutes in the Underworld then spends the rest of the story adjusting to life after a NDE (near death experience). I cannot express how disappointed I am that the Underworld parts were so tiny. There were far too many things that were either absurd or made absolutely no sense. 1) John’s age didn’t add up. When she was in the cemetery for her […]

Audiobook Review: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

Audiobook Review: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

  This was such a magical storyline that I couldn’t help but love it because it’s unlike anything I’ve ever read before. The water horses, capaill uisce (sounds like cap-pull ish-kuh), are basically kelpies. I’ve never read a story about kelpies before, and the idea of a deadly man-eating water horse fascinates me. Taming and racing them adds to that! I freaking loved Puck!! She was fiery and brave, a bit petulant at times, but compassionate and outspoken. Her and I would totally […]
