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
The Marketing on Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten was the only reason I picked up this book. I'm not usually a reader of YA Mystery, which is usually angsty and shallow. I expected something different when I read it though. I highly enjoyed Gone Girl and Thirteen Reasons Why - but when you stop to think about it - the whole book seems quite obvious now when you add the first line of the synopsis to the title of the book and suddenly the plot twist is quite evident.read more
Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson was one of those middle of the road books that is so hard to review. I enjoyed it but found enough wrong with it that I can’t give it a glowing review. I did find the premise interesting and the characters compelling, but I also found that it was rather immature at times and repetitive. I also found that a lot of the plot was not explained which was a bit of a frustration, because it did have a lot of potential and Sanderson’s writing style is...well epic.read more
Royally Screwed was one of those guilty pleasure romance that I so enjoy. Sure, it's a romance involving a royal and a commoner, something that's been done a few times, but Emma Chase made it funny, sexy, and added a few twists and turns that made it fresh. The narration by Andi Arndt and Shane East was a pleasure to listen to, making this a MUST LISTEN audiobook.read more
DEAD SOULS by J. Lincoln Fenn is a novel that took me by surprise. It’s one of those novels where you can’t stand the heroine, but you like the book anyway. Fenn’s complex plot and abject ability to capture logic in evil makes this story great and also horrifying. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any more intense, things got crazy. I enjoyed listening to this book. If it wouldn’t have been a gore fest at the end, I might have enjoyed it more, giving it a 5-star - but really it was worth the listen and I’m sure you’ll find it quite entertaining.read more
If the world needed another Young Adult novel “written” by a celeb, what better YA novel to produce than a dystopian? Make that dystopian with a generic “people suck” reasoning for the end of the world – and you have yourself the next bestseller. Because we need more of these…in our lives! </sarcasm> Let me introduce you to Children of Eden written by...read more
The Fifth Wave series starts out strong with the first book. In fact, The Fifth Wave, is one of my all-time favorite YA Apocalypse novels. In the first book the non-stop action, the intense character interactions and the unique perspective, paired with Yancy’s dedication to not hold back makes for a winner as far as books. Unfortunately, Yancy loses that fervor in the next books....read more
