Audio Review: ‘White Rabbit’

I’ve had books by Caleb Roehrig on my TBR list for a while, and when I saw White Rabbit was an Audible Deal of the Day, I swiped that up and decided it was time to give him a try! I really enjoyed this one!

Casual reminder that a 3-star rating isn’t bad at all – 3 stars still means I enjoyed it and had a fun time with the story.

TW: Homophobia & homophobic slurs

Audio Review: ‘One Of Us Is Lying’

Mystery/thriller books are really hit or miss with me and unfortunately, this one was a miss. I really wanted to like this book, and I couldn’t stop reading it even as it became a big mess of a story. I considering DNF-ing it but I also wanted to know how it ended!

I will say this reminded me of E. Lockhart’s book “We Were Liars” and….I strongly disliked that book as well.

Title: One Of Us Is Lying
Author: Karen M. McManus
Series: Standalone
Rating: 2/5

TW: Depression, mentions of suicide, homophobia, cheating

Audio Review: ‘What If It’s Us’

What If It’s Us was cute, fluffy, easy to read/listen to audiobook! But – if I hadn’t listened to it, I think I would’ve been ok in life as well. I think me and Becky/Adam books just don’t click and I need to accept that – and stop reading their books.

Title: What If It’s Us

Audio Review: ‘Light Years’

LightYears-edit

This was the last book I read in 2018 and it was SO MUCH FUN! I can’t believe I haven’t heard more about Light Years, I really enjoyed this book and had so much fun with it, and really, that’s all I ever want from a book – and if a book is set in space – that’s always a nice plus. (Spoiler: This is set in space.)

Audiobook Review: ‘Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts)’

Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) is a fun lighthearted read – and exactly what I needed in the moment. Jack loves boys and sex and having sex with boys. This story isn’t afraid to be bold and Jack isn’t afraid to give details of his sex life. This story won’t be for everyone, but I LOVED it.

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.

Title: Sadie

Audiobook Review: ‘Every Exquisite Thing’

After Cast Long Shadows, it has been nice staying within the same time period. This story focuses on Anna Lightwood and I have already fallen so in love with her.

Audiobook Review: ‘More Happy Than Not’

Despite loving both YA and queer genre books, I can’t believe it has taken me this long to read More Happy Than Not! I read They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera last fall and LOVED IT, so of course I had to backtrack and read his previous books. (History Is All You Left Me is also on my radar.)

Title: More Happy Than Not
Author: Adam Silvera
Rating: 2/5 stars

Review: ‘Every Day’

A wakes up in a different body and in a different life – everyday.

I love the concept of this novel. Everyday this ‘being’ who has named themselves “A” is a different person, but has the same mind. They switch bodies every day, always into someone their age and never too far from where the last body was. They don’t know why or how it happens, it’s just something A has accepted as a way of living.

I will admit the reason I finally picked up this book is because of the movie released on February 23, 2018 with the same name – Every Day. The true bookworm I am, I knew I needed to read the book before seeing the movie. (Movie review coming on Friday!)
