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.

Audio Review: ‘Daisy Jones & The Six’

2019 can just end now, because no other book will match up to Daisy Jones & The Six.

If you only listen to one audiobook ever in your life, please let it be this one.

Oh, and if you were considering buying that concert ticket but were unsure about it? Buy the damn ticket. Go to the concert. Even if you’re going alone. Go.

Audio Review: ‘The Queen’s Resistance’

The Queen’s Resistance, sequel to The Queen’s Rising, is going to be one of my favorite books I read in 2019. The world building in this duology is just astounding, some of my all time favorite, and I want everyone to read this book and love it just as much as I do.

This review does contain spoilers for The Queen’s Rising – it’s marked in bold about ¼ of the way in, so be careful!

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.

ARC Review: ‘The Test’

New story by Sylvain Neuvel, author of Themis Files (Sleeping Giants, Waking Gods, Only Human)?! SIGN ME THE HECK UP! Yeah, Sylvain Neuvel is one of those authors I will read everything and anything he writes from now on. I’m pleased to say this is the very first physical ARC that Frayed Books has received from a publisher! Many thanks to Tor.com for the copy, and all opinions are my own.

Top 10 of 2018 ~ Missy’s Picks

It’s that time of year again friends, for the Best Of 2018 lists! I’m a little late in posting this compared to some people, but such is life.

2018 was a pretty mediocre reading year for me. Looking back at what I read, there were only a few books that really WOW-ed me and I fell totally in love with. Don’t get me wrong, there were a lot of good books out this year, but as I was writing this list, once I got to about 6 books, I started feeling stumped. Yeah, it was actually difficult for me to pick 10 books, sad to say.

I liked a lot – but didn’t love ‘em. But nonetheless, here’s my list of my favorite 10 books I read in 2018!

(These aren’t in order of favorites, just in order of publication!)

Audiobook Review: ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – Makers, Mysteries and Magic: The Official Audio Documentary’

When I heard about this behind the scenes audiobook documentary from Pottermore Publishing, I was curious enough to give it a try after seeing the movie. While I don’t think this adds anything to the experience or is necessary, it’s not a bad listen, and now I suddenly wish I worked on movie sets!

While it’s stated in the beginning that this contains no spoilers, I would strongly advise not listening to this before you see the movie. I felt things would have been spoiled if I hadn’t see it beforehand.

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: ‘Finding Yvonne’

The summary of Finding Yvonne sounded interesting and rather unique enough – Yvonne plays violin, but she’s just not good enough to get into conservatories after high school. But then she becomes pregnant, which throws another wrench into her plans! Oh no! However, the story honestly didn’t feel anything like the summary and both the music aspect and the pregnancy played smaller roles than I would have expected and I was disappointed with this overall.
