Audiobook Review: Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

Audiobook Review: Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

January 4, 2016 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

My review of the paperback edition of this book begins: "This book will break your feelings. Shatter them, then stomp on the resulting little pieces. And you’ll love every moment of it." And this is still true of the audiobook version. There were times where I listened with tears in my eyes. Everything about this book is beautiful, exquisite, and agonising, and the audiobook version is even more so because Khristine Hvam is such a skilled narrator. Having only read Dreams of Gods and Monsters once before, there were quite a few things I'd forgotten or misremembered from the book....

Fearless, the last instalment in the Avena series, concludes Ebony and Nathaneal’s story admirably, and I enjoyed every moment of it immensely. I’ve loved this series since I read Hidden, and am sad to let these characters and their world go.

Burn by Paula Weston

Burn by Paula Weston

June 17, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

What a glorious way to end off one of the best angel-themed paranormal series I’ve ever read! Burn is everything I expected from the final instalment of The Rephaim, a brilliantly plotted novel where action, romance, and intrigue come together to create magic.

I have absolutely loved reading Shimmer, and can’t praise The Rephaim series highly enough. This book won’t disappoint fans of the vivid world that Weston has created with an Australian backdrop!

Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

April 1, 2014 Reviews 4 ★★★★★

Laini Taylor’s gorgeous story-telling will sweep readers away from the first page, and then excite, horrify, generally agonise them until the last page is turned. Her writing is indescribably mesmerising, somehow managing to capture hearts and imaginations and allow us to immerse ourselves fully into the world she has created.

Broken by Marianne Curley

Broken by Marianne Curley

March 14, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

I have a rocky relationship with sequels, as you may know. Middle book syndrome is a real thing, and it plagues too many books these days for me not to look at sequels with trepidation. But Broken, the sequel to Hidden, is everything a sequel should be, and if you…

Haze by Paula Weston

Haze by Paula Weston

November 26, 2013 Reviews 2

Paula Weston brings the amazing to the table once again, with the brilliant and exhilarating Haze.  This is one of the best sequels I’ve ever read: the story doesn’t feel like its been dragged out while we wait for an explosive finale, but stands on its own as a complex, well-told…

Wicked Kiss by Michelle Rowen

Wicked Kiss by Michelle Rowen

November 14, 2013 Reviews 0

I am impressed at how seamlessly Rowen tells this story, especially considering that it has been so long since I read Dark Kiss. I didn’t really remember any characters except for Samantha, Bishop and Kraven, and I only recalled the barest details of the plot. The author skillfully re-oriented me…

April 11, 2013 Reviews 0 ★★★★½

I think the blurb of this book really doesn’t sell it – I put off reading it until I read Mandee’s review, and when I found out she enjoyed it, I decided to give it a chance. I’m so glad I did, and also sad that I left it so…
