Listen Up! Saying Goodbye to Kat & Bones #Audiobook Review Welcome to my weekly feature that focuses on audiobooks.

Up From the Grave #Audiobook Review I have to say that I went in to Up From the Grave with a bit of apprehension. When initially starting the series, I had mixed feelings, reaching a low back with the fourth title; however, the last two books in the Night Huntress series have been fabulous. When a fellow reader mentioned the reasons why...

Twice Tempted #Audiobook Review The second Night Prince book starts with an emotional rollercoaster and ends on a bit of a jaw drop reveal, leaving me ready for the next book. Twice Tempted opens about six weeks after the conclusion of the Once Burned, and Lelia’s electrical powers and psychic telemetry are still blocked due to Vlad putting his fireproofing essence on her....

Listen Up! When is an #audiobook better?

Listen Up! When is an #audiobook better? Welcome to my weekly feature that focuses on audiobooks. It’s time to… Listening vs. Reading When do you decide to listen to an audiobook instead of reading the story? For me, I pretty much continue to read books in series that I’ve been reading, and I use audiobooks to catch up on books/series I’ve had on my wish list/TBR. But it’s not always that simple. Listening to a story gives the “reader” a completely different experience than reading it. Sometimes one way works better for a reader than another. Recently, I decided to listen to Eighth Grave After Dark by Darynda Jones, rather than read it. Here is a series...

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Night Broken

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Night Broken Welcome to my weekly feature that focuses on audiobooks. It’s time to… Audiobook review: Night Broken Author: Patricia Briggs Narrator: Lorelei King Audio Speed: 1.25x Series: Mercy Thompson #8 Genre: Urban Fantasy Source: borrowed NOTE: This review may contain spoilers from the previous books in the series. I started to listen to Night Broken almost eight months ago and quit after the opening scene. I realized that I needed a break from the Mercy Thompson series because I couldn’t take the pack’s treatment of Mercy any longer. The fact that after seven books and the countless times she’s helped them, the pack still treated Mercy with utter disregard and dislike completely ticked me off. This,...

Listen Up! #Audiobook Reviews: Kowalski Family Series 8-9

Listen Up! #Audiobook Reviews: Kowalski Family Series 8-9 Welcome to my weekly feature that focuses on audiobooks. It’s time to… Audiobook review: Kowalski Family Series Author: Shannon Stacey Narrator: Lauren Fortgang Audio Speed: 1.25x Series: Kowalski Family #8-9 Genre: Contemporary Romance Source: purchased Taken with You Although I wasn’t won over by the opening scenes, Taken with You is definitely one of the best in the Kowalski Family series. While still set in Whitford, Maine, the series shifts to a non-Kowalski pairing between town librarian Hailey Genest and new-comer Matt Barnett, the “hot game warden” assigned to Whitford. The story hits all the right notes for me, and I adore how Hailey and Matt learn to love despite their differences. Hailey has watched all of her friends...

It’s time to… Audiobook review: Shards of Hope Author: Nalini Singh Narrator: Angela Dawson Listening Speed: 1.0x Reviewer: Una Audiobook Source: Tantor Media What I’m Talking About: Nalini Singh is one of my favorite writers, and I am an avid follower of her Psy-Changling series.  This is the first time I’ve listened to one of her new releases via audio book before reading a hard copy.  It was an interesting experience.  Not only did I enjoy the story, but I learned about what type of reader I am. Overall, I liked Shards of Hope, even though it wasn’t quite what I...

It’s time to… Audiobook review: Love a Little Sideways Author: Shannon Stacey Narrator: Lauren Fortgang Audio Speed: 1.25x Series: Kowalski Family #7 Genre: Contemporary Romance Source: purchased What I’m Talking About I am binge listening to this series, and although each book is unique, I have to admit, they are all starting to blend into one big Kowalski-story-of-doom, and it’s hard to distinguish each of the individual pieces to write a comprehensive and distinctive review. With that said, Love a Little Sideways marks a change in the Kowalski Family series, moving from a focus on saving the Northern Star Lodge, which reached its peak in the previous...
