Audiobook Review: Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older

Audiobook Review: Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older

Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older is the first book in his Bone Street Rumba series.  This Urban Fantasy was full of grit and soul and an absolute pleasure to listen to! I snatched up this offer on a whim after looking at the other audiobook options.  An author I have never heard of, that is narrating his own book?  Intrigue won the internal debate, but I am going to admit that I was skeptical and a bit pre-judgmental that… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Burned by Karen Marie Moning

Audiobook Review: Burned by Karen Marie Moning

 I tried desperately NOT to put anything spoilerish in this review.  I am not perfect, but I did try. Burned by Karen Marie Moning is the seventh book in the Fevered series.  I have sung my love of this series for many many years and It is one of the few series I always think about rereading.  That being said, Burned just didn’t hold up to any expectations. I am not sure what just happened here.  I was left feeling disappointed, confused, and… Read more »

The Ocean at the End of the Lane is such a great example of this talent.  The innocent fears of an everyday child come alive in this shorter story about an impossible journey.  Impossible,… Read more »

Audiobook Review Vacant by Alex Hughes

Audiobook Review Vacant by Alex Hughes

Disclaimer:  Vacant by Alex Hughes is the first book I have read in the Mindspace Investigation Series.  **Unintentional spoilers may be contained in this review. Vacant by Alex Hughes might have settled better with me, if I would have not listened to it.  However, that totally could go the other way.  Why am I not sure?  It is simple.  This is one of those “on the line” books for me.  It borders being good and not-so good.  When this happens,  I… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Touched by an Alien by Gini Koch

Audiobook Review: Touched by an Alien by Gini Koch

One of my goals this year was to pick up some established series that were on my TBR, but I had yet to get to.  So when I was searching Audible for my next listen and found Touched by an Alien, I instantly purchased it.  Touched by an Alien is Gini Koch‘s first installment in her Katherine “Kitty” Kat series. I loved this book.  A few times I felt a little panicky thinking it was going to go into the… Read more »
