Audiobook Review: Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger

Audiobook Review: Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger

This book is kind of an audio review, and kind of not. I started it via audio, and finished it by reading the rest. Confession: I started this book two years ago and never finished. Not because I didn’t like it, but because my Audible app screwed up and I lost my spot in the audiobook. I had NO idea where I was at, so I just…never picked it back up again. The sad part is, I was really enjoying […]

Audiobook Review: Raging Star by Moira Young

Audiobook Review: Raging Star by Moira Young

[Lots of spoilers ahead, but all are in tags. DO NOT CLICK THEM IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK. No, seriously. They will ruin it for you because they are doozies. Just don’t do it, man.] For the majority of this book, I feel like there wasn’t really anything happening. I got fairly bored with the audio because it was moving at a snail’s pace. I listened to it while traveling to Florida, and I actually had to turn it […]

Audiobook Review: The Eighth Guardian by Meredith McCardle

Audiobook Review: The Eighth Guardian by Meredith McCardle

The concept for this story was amazing! I love anything time travel, and I was impressed with the notion of a branch of the military assigned to monitoring historical events and alteration of them. Very cool! It’s definitely not like any other time travel book out there. I found the setup of the Annum Guard fascinating! The Annum watches were totally awesome! I liked their system of code names, too: Numbers for first generation, Greek alphabet for second, and colors […]

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 […]
