Audio Review: Kodiak’s Claim by Eve Langlais


May Contain Spoilers

I am been having a very difficult time finishing anything longer than a graphic novel. I was scrolling through the titles included in my Audible Romance package subscription, and decided to give Kodiak’s Claim, as well as a zombie book, a listen. Since I had a lengthy drive to a horse show, I needed something to hold my attention. I enjoy shifter books, and I haven’t read many with bears, so I clicked the borrow button.

Audio Review: The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata


May Contain Spoilers

I had seen some reviews for Mariana Zapata’s books online, so when it was time to load up another audio book, I borrowed The Wall of Winnipeg and Me using my Kindle Unlimited subscription. I borrowed both the audio and digital versions, and while I read the last three chapters, I listened mostly to the audio book. I loved the narrator and she really made the book come alive for me.

Audio Review: Daisy’s Back in Town by Rachel Gibson



May Contain Spoilers

I have read enjoyed Rachel Gibson in the past, so when I saw that Daisy’s Back in Town was available to listen to using Audible’s Romance Package, I clicked away. It has one of my favorite tropes, too; I have a soft spot for second chance at love stories.  I even sort of enjoy secret babies, but this pushed the envelope on that. Nathan was 15 years old, so Daisy has been keeping him a secret for a long, long time. Too long, I think, given the circumstances. And she only  manages to drag it out for over 50% of the book, even though that’s the whole reason she has returned to her hometown of Lovett, Texas.

Audio Review: Absolute Power by David Baldacci


May Contain Spoilers

I don’t read many thrillers, but a friend sent an Audible copy of Absolute Power to me, so I loaded it up and listened to on my drives to work. My listening was interrupted when I went to visit my dad for a few days, but I picked right up and didn’t feel that I missed too much in the week I was gone. This was a great read, though I thought the ending was wrapped up a bit too speedily.

Audio Review: Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, Read by Bahni Turpin


May Contain Spoilers

Oh wow, was this a great book.  It’s been on my radar for a while, so when I was offered an audio copy for review, I was over the moon. I’m trying to up my audio reading game, and BOOM, this showed up. It’s a great story, told by a talented reader, and I found myself listening to it while puttering around the house over the weekend, so I puttered a lot more than usual. It was very timely, as I fell on the ice and twisted my knee, so I had a great excuse to do nothing but stay home and listen to an entertaining story, with a stunningly breathtaking setting.
