The Book Thief audiobook review

Where does one even begin with this book? Nothing I say could ever really do it justice. I guess I understand what all the fuss was about now. Liesel is now one of my favorite heroines of all time. She's strong-willed, compassionate, and still just a girl....

Lord Sunday audiobook review

I've mentioned in my reviews for the previous books in this series that I've read it before and I have to say I'm /really/ glad I decided to reread them because I had it in my mind that the ending was really depressing. Instead, it was a really fitting end...

Superior Saturday audiobook review

Saturday, you envious bastard. I really liked the sorcery system with the colorful umbrellas and everything. And it's kind of amusing that whenever a sorcerer got a promotion their entire desk space moved up however many floors and all the sad saps who didn't make it threw...

Lady Friday audiobook review

Lady Friday just seems a bit pitiful to me. She has her Noon (or possible Dawn or Dusk -- I can't quite recall) do her fighting while she sits about eating human experiences. Plus, she goes a bit mad with her desire for the experiences. It begins to seem that...

Sir Thursday audiobook review

Not my favorite of the series, but a good and important one to Arthur's story. This is where Arthur really starts to struggle with the possibility of becoming a Denizen. It's hard to watch him trying to do everything. He's fighting to keep himself human and maybe...

The Serpent's Shadow audiobook review

I actually really enjoyed the ending. Everything was well and tied up in the end, but it also left a little wiggle room if Rick ever decided to do a spin-off or some sort of continuation. Some of my favorite bits were Carter's random comments about the...

The Throne of Fire review

In an almost unheard of event, I think I actually liked the second book better than the first in The Kane Chronicles. I really like how Carter and Sadie started to come into their own in The Throne of Fire. Since they shut out the gods and...

Chasing the Prophecy review

This whole series is one of the best I've read in a long while, but the final book is exceptional. I couldn't possibly imagine a better ending than the one Mull has created here, despite the deaths of many of my favorite characters. I ended up finishing the book at...

The Red Pyramid audiobook review

Let's just get this out of the way now: I still love the Percy Jackson series more. But that's really neither here nor there since this is an entirely different series and shouldn't be compared to Percy just because it's the same author. I can't say this...

Seeds of Rebellion review

I loved the first book in this series and I'm glad the sequel didn't disappointment me. Seeds of Rebellion is a fantastic sequel that only made me more excited to read the third book. I think I'll do this review list-style since I enjoyed most...

Solitary review

After being surprised by how much I enjoyed Lockdown, I was a little afraid I'd be disappointed in the next book(s). Especially since there's quite a few of them. I'm happy to say the Solitary didn't disappoint me in the least. Well, except for one small thing, but...

Shadow and Bone review

I'm so glad everyone wouldn't stop singing the praises for this book, because I wouldn't have read it otherwise, and I'd never know what my life was missing. I never planned to read this because I'm pretty wary of the fantasy genre in general. On...

Team Human audiobook review

I think I enjoyed this one more in audiobook format than I would have in regular text. I read much slower than I can listen to an audiobook since I can listen at work. Since I read more on the slow side, I think I would've gotten a bit bored...

Drowned Wednesday audiobook review

This one is probably my favorite of the three so far. Leaf joins Arthur in the House this time around, though she doesn't stay with him for very long. In his absence, though she's pretty awesome. She becomes a ship boy on a miserable ship, goes through...

Grim Tuesday audiobook review

A pretty strong sequel. I kind of wish Grim Tuesday had been involved more, but the story was good nonetheless. Plus, the portion of the Will in this one is kind of amusing. I love the slow growth Arthur is going through. He still...
