Bray Audio Speed: 1x Series: Standalone Genre: Science Fiction Source: purchased Okay friends… here is the scoop. We’ve all been hearing RAVES about The Martian, particularly in audiobook format, for months, and to be honest, when people rave that much, I tend to get disappointed. So I waited and then cautiously started listening a couple weeks ago. What did I think? THE BOOK IS WORTHY OF THE HYPE!! I was immediately engrossed and emotionally invested in the tale of Mark Watney, an astronaut stranded on Mars. While he’s not the first person to step foot...

Review: Autumn Moon by Jan DeLima

Review: Autumn Moon by Jan DeLima Autumn Moon Author: Jan DeLima Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Autumn Moon is another exciting tale in the Celtic Wolves series. Ms. DeLima has found a way to make shifters and paranormal romance exciting and engrossing again. I love her mix of mythology, even if I get confused by the terms from time to time.
