If you are looking for your next audiobook download, look no further. The full cast production of Sylvian Neuvel’s science fiction masterpiece is a MUST READ/LISTEN. Written in the journalistic narrator style that has been popularized by apocalyptic fiction., I think the Themis Files is the perfect book to experience in audiobook form, especially with the full cast line-up. The production was perfect and gave this novel star-power with the delivery.
One of the best books I've read in a long time, All Our Wrong Todays, was a far-reaching, insightful, and witty, novel, disguised as a shallow time-travel piece. I cried, I laughed, I yelled in frustration, as I read, Elan Mastai's debut, in was an emotional roller-coaster.read more
Finding Gideon was marketed as a stand-alone, even though there are more stories in this series, and technically it is, but I did feel that I fell feet first into a story that I wasn’t ready for. I think it had to do with the main POV in the beginning which was Medianoche, which starts out in a place I didn’t want to be. I didn’t like him, I didn’t want to read about him…and it kept increasing.
Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series has been a favorite of mine for several years, and by book 10 (10!!!) these characters are like old friends. I love paranormal stories, and Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thomson series is one of the best. She had my attention at the first line:
Available Today! LIAR by GILLIAN ZANE Case # 3 of the Karma Incorporated Series. Karma doesn’t get an off day. Working for Karma Incorporated might sound like the best job in the world, but there’s one really big catch: you’ve got to die to get it. Cassandra Mercier died at the ripe old age of twenty-one and is now gainfully employed by the Afterlife Corporation as a Karma operative. She’s still working nine to five, undercover as Cassidy Hail to deliver some much needed cosmic payback.read more
Anne Bishop’s The Other’s series is a gem among gems. It is an Urban Fantasy set within an alternate reality where supernaturals rule and humans are relegated to small communities, afraid of the wild areas.
The name and genre this book is listed in do not give it justice. The cover, name, and everything else lead you to believe this is gonna be another one of those explicit erotica contemporary romances that are really nothing more than a bunch of sex scenes and little plot. But, this book is nothing of the sort. I was surprised that it is classified within erotica, because I would have thought this would be a straight up romance. Yes, it’s hot – but there is a whole lot more going on than just sexy time.
The Billionaire Beast is the first book by Jackie Ashenden that I’ve read, even though it’s 2nd in the series. It can be read as a stand-alone though, so I didn’t have issues following along. I feel like every romance that is getting tucked into my inbox is a Billionaire novel – and each one is getting more outlandish than the next. This one isn’t your typical billionaire in the setting, but it’s stereotypical in the composition. Ashenden set out to create more of a “bastard” billionaire than all the rest and she succeeded and then wrapped him in a mental illness so you’ll pity him. While I did enjoy the novel, when it ended I felt a bit let down, because it is a fairy tale novel – the happily-ever-after was too contrived.
The Gardiner and Renner series starts off with a bang in Lisa Black’s second book. The series can be read as a stand-alone but I would recommend reading the first book, That Darkness, first. I have a thing for vigilantes, and Lisa Black’s series is just my thing…
