Audiobook Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Audiobook Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

I listened to my very first audio-book last month, and I have things to say about it!

My decision to listen to Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor as my first audio-book was calculated - I thought Taylor's lyrical writing would lend itself perfectly to experience. And I was right! I can't imagine a more perfect book to have started off with.

I've always thought I wouldn't like audio books because they're read so very slowly (and my reading rate is super fast), and because I thought that the voices the narrators give the characters would be weird...

Every Move by Ellie Marney

Every Move by Ellie Marney

Reviews 1 ★★★★

The last instalment of Ellie Marney’s Every series has left me conflicted and sad. Although it’s hard to say good-bye to Mycroft and Watts, it’s probably for the best because I didn’t really like the way this book turned out.

Half Wild by Sally Green

Half Wild by Sally Green

Reviews 1 ★★★★

Half Wild is the follow-up to Half Bad. This series follows Nathan Byrn, a half-White and half-Black witch in a world where the two hate each other and don’t usually mix. The fact that Nathan’s father is the most notorious and dangerous Black witch in existence doesn’t help the matter.

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Firefight is a wonderful sequel to the heart-stopping Steelheart, delivering all the action, adventure, and fun that readers will expect. It’s an explosive adventure that captured my imagination, and has left me sad that I have to wait so long for the next instalment, Calamity.

Beauty by Sarah Pinborough

Beauty by Sarah Pinborough

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Another enchanting and dark fairytale by Sarah Pinborough, Beauty is set before Charm and Poison and allows us to understand those stories a lot better. It introduces us to the prince, the huntsman, a very curious girl, and a deeply disturbing castle.
