Audiobook Review: ‘Through Blood, Through Fire’

Just when I thought I couldn’t love Jem and Tessa anymore than I already do, HERE WE ARE, and I’m loving them even more! After reading this, I’m even more excited to see what happens in Queen of Air and Darkness, especially with Jem & Tessa~

Audiobook Review: ‘The Land I Lost’

Me at the beginning: “I mean I like Malec alright but they’re not like my OTP -shrug-“

Me literally 5 minutes into the audio: “PROTECT THIS FAMILY AT ALL COSTS. I REPEAT: ALL. COSTS.”

I didn’t realize how much I loved and appreciated Malec until this very moment. This is hands down my favorite Ghosts of the Shadow Market novella. This is also the longest of the novella’s thus far (audio was 3.5 hours!), which might have influenced my opinion – this felt like a full story.

Audiobook Review: ‘Sadie’

I didn’t expect to fall so in love with Sadie, but I can easily say this is one of my favorite books I’ve read in 2018. Sometimes it’s the books that aren’t hyped up a lot, you don’t hear too much about, that end up hitting the NYT Bestsellers List and end up being real gems – even if the story breaks your heart along the way.

Audiobook Review: ‘My Plain Jane’

This book is SO MUCH FUN! If you’re looking for a lighthearted comedic read, pick up this book, My Plain Jane, or the previous book by the Lady Janies (what the authors call themselves), My Lady Jane. This is a retelling of Jane Eyre….but with a twist or a hundred thrown in. It’s not the story you know.

I will preface this by saying I have never read Jane Erye and I enjoyed this story completely! You don’t need to have read My Lady Jane or Jane Eyre to enjoy this. While this is sort of part of a series, it reads as a standalone.

Author: Cynthia Hand, Brodie Ashton, Jodi Meadows

Audiobook Review: ‘The Wicked Ones’

As we are quickly approaching the conclusion of Ghosts of the Shadow Market novellas, I feel like the stories are becoming more important. This one in particular feels like it will play a very important role in Queen of Air and Darkness. AKA I need a new family tree because I can’t keep everyone straight, especially these Herondales!!!

Audiobook Review: ‘A Deeper Love’

After how much I disliked Learn About Loss, this story was so much better, focusing on Tessa and Catarina’s lives as nurses during WWII. We’re back on the right track. Not my favorite, but I did enjoy this one! I’m beginning to realize I’m most excited for the stories that revolve around The Last Hours characters/TID kids. I want more!

Audiobook Review: ‘Learn About Loss’

I’m disappointed to say that Learn About Loss is my least favorite of the stories so far. It’s forgettable and honestly feels unnecessary.
