How I Listen to Audiobooks

How I Listen to Audiobooks

September 29, 2016 Discussion 26

A few of you may remember that back at the start of the year I was lamenting over the fact that I couldn’t get audiobooks to work for me. I struggled to focus and just generally had a terrible time listening to them. Fastforward 6 months and I’m flying through audiobooks. I finally figured out how to get them to […]

Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

September 24, 2016 Review 36 ★★★★★

Spoiler free, just a few non-spoilery quotes! Once again, I find myself in the Post-Maas What Do I Do With My Life Crisis. As of right now, I’m sort of in denial and have convinced myself that everything is okay. I just got off a totally crazy roller coaster but I am going to be okay. “A storm is coming. […]

5 Things About Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

5 Things About Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

September 15, 2016 Review 28 ★★★★★

Darker, more complex tales targeted at a slightly older audience are much more interesting in my opinion. NEVERNIGHT is bloody and intense. People could die at any time. But this wasn’t […]

Our Rainbow Book Stack The lands of Furthermore and Ferenwood are filled with color-magic. Who doesn’t love the rainbow book aesthetic? After being uber-jealous of all the pretty bookshelf rainbows out there, we thought it would be fun to make our own attempt! Just a stack though because that level of commitment with over 300 books is a little intimidating. […]

5 Things About Red Glove by Holly Black

5 Things About Red Glove by Holly Black

August 28, 2016 Review 10 ★★★

Second book syndrome or slump? I really enjoyed WHITE CAT but for some reason I never fully connected with RED GLOVE. It may be attributable to a slump I was in at the time, or it may be because I actually didn’t enjoy it as much. It’s difficult to tell and to be honest I think it might be a […]
