Audiobook Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Audiobook Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Audiobook Reviews, Young Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★★

One Line: A standout in the parallel dimension/time travel genre with massive potential. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Time travel or parallel universe storylines are always a bit iffy for me. Sometimes they work. Sometimes they don’t. In this case, it worked. Gray’s idea of a firebird, a device that allows its user to travel through dimensions, was pretty interesting. I liked how she incorporated the physics into it… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman

Audiobook Reviews, Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★

One Line: Even though the story dragged for the most part, the characters were fascinating and made the book a memorable read for me. What I Loved: I loved meeting all of the other half-dragons and learning about their unique abilities and quirks. Seraphina’s “garden of the grotesque” was pretty interesting and those times when we were her head were pretty fascinating. The characters, both good and bad, were what… Read more »

One Line: An amazing retelling and introduction to a fascinating world. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Maas is pretty much a fantasy genius.

This book was so beautifully written and Maas tackles each aspect with flair. The fantasy world was intricate and the plot, albeit a little… Read more »

The synopsis wasn’t wrong when it said Get Even was similar to Pretty Little Liars, especially the TV show version. I swear I felt like I was watching an episode, or two, of Pretty Little Liars while reading this. Not only do… Read more »

One Line: A refreshing tale with one heck of a couple that sets it apart from all other Dystopians out today. What I Loved: Ivy. Plain and simple. That girl is just all kinds of awesome and I admired her character so much. Her loyalty was so unwavering, even when it was detrimental to her, she would not budge. And I appreciated her views on how their society was shaped… Read more »

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

One Line: A dystopian that didn’t bore me? That’s a winner right there! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Awakening was exactly the kind of dystopian book that I can get into. It’s not too heavy on the frivolous details or info dumps, but filled with engaging characters and action scenes to keep the story flowing quickly and smoothly.
