Audiobook Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Audiobook Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

To be completely honest, I was worried going in that I would be the black sheep again because the hype for this book is U N R E A L. Thankfully, I wasn’t! For once, the hype is 100% justified. This book is so important, so impactful. It really makes you think about the world and how flawed it is. And honestly, this book got under my skin. I didn’t expect to care so much, because I am just not a contemporary […]

Audiobook Review: Children of Blood & Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Audiobook Review: Children of Blood & Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

We are all children of blood and bone. All instruments of vengeance and virtue. The first time I tried this book, I was reading it. I made it 254 pages into the ARC – which is right around halfway through – before I gave up. I was bored out of my mind, and other than the awesome premise (magic!!) and diverse setting/characters, it felt extremely generic. I couldn’t connect at all, and didn’t find the characters very inspiring. I kept […]

I don’t think Julie could write anything that I won’t love! This was my first ever Julie book, so it holds a special place in my heart. I read this for the first time years ago, when Iron Queen had just come out, read it again before The Iron Knight was released, so this time listening to audio is my 3rd time! It’s definitely an old favorite of mine. I love the world that Julie creates. I usually don’t care […]

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 […]
