‘Yours Truly’ by Abby Jimenez – Audiobook Review

I am a longtime fan of Abby Jimenez’s writing, so when I hear she has a new book coming out, say less – I will read that book ASAP. Yours Truly is set in the same world as Part of Your World (pun not intended) but can technically be read as a standalone – however, it will spoil Part of Your World if you read Yours Truly first and I would highly recommend the first book anyway, a quick and fun read!

Title: Yours Truly
Author: Abby Jimenez
Series: Part of Your World #2
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

‘Divine Rivals’ by Rebecca Ross – Audiobook ARC Review

It’s only March but I already found one of my favorite books of 2023.

I’m a longtime fan of Rebecca’s writing, and not to be dramatic, but I truly think Divine Rivals is her best YA novel to date. Her world building abilities are incredibly strong and this world is built from the ground up.

Thank you to Netgalley for the audio arc! All opinions are my own.

Author: Rebecca Ross
Series: Letters of Enchantment #1
Genres: Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Romance

Release Date: April 4, 2023

‘My Mechanical Romance’ by Alexene Farol Follmuth – Audiobook Review

I’ll be honest – the title is what drew me to this book, and the fact it sounds so close to My Chemical Romance, one of my favorite bands – how could I not pick this up?! I only later learned this is written by the author of The Atlas Six (under a penname), which many people rave about – so I knew this had to be good.

Title: My Mechanical Romance
Author: Alexene Farol Follmuth
Series: Standalone
