Mister Monday audiobook review

I've read the entire series before, but my memory really isn't great so I only remember little bits and pieces. I've often thought about the series in the years since finishing it and thought it was time for a reread. I'd forgotten just how good these books...

Long Lankin audiobook review

This was awesome as an audiobook. I think it just gave it that sitting-around-a-campfire-telling-ghost-stories feel which went really well with the story. Especially the little creepy song about Lankin (though I don't recall the reader actually singing it.) I'm happy to say Long Lankin didn't disappoint in...

A Swiftly Tilting Planet audiobook review

We leave Meg as a teenager in the previous book only to arrive here with her grown, married, and pregnant. Um, okay. I mean, watching someone grow and change is good, but I'd rather actually see it happen than be told it happened. Now that Meg has...

A Wind in the Door audiobook review

Honestly, the main reason I listened to this is to see the previous story continued. That was definitely the wrong choice. The books in The Wrinkle in Time Quartet are actually companions and not a series in the least. I found the story slightly interesting, but not...

A Wrinkle in Time audiobook review

I don't really understand why everyone loves this book so much. Maybe when it came out it was groundbreaking and fascinating, but these days there are lots of scifi/fantasy books for a younger audience that are better in every way. First of all, the author really isn't...

Doll Bones audiobook review

After everything I've heard combined with the creepy cover, I was expecting to at least get some chills. Sadly, that didn't happen. First of all, I just couldn't really get Zach's reasoning behind not wanting to tell Poppy and Alice about what his father did. I mean,...

The End audiobook review

It's actually a fairly solid end, all things considered, but there are so many unresolved mysteries that it's unlikely you'll find yourself satisfied upon finishing. To be fair, Snicket warned us from the start that there would be no happy ending. I like that we, the reader, as well...

The Penultimate Peril audiobook review

At this point in the series I know that things can never really end well. Yet, I always hold out a tiny bit of hope that this or that character may live and this or that mystery will be solved. And once again I'm left not exactly disappointed, but sad...

The Grim Grotto audiobook review

Some interesting revelations in this one, but of course, more mysteries are introduced that sadly never get solved. I felt really bad for poor Klaus, what with his developing a crush only to have her switch sides on him. Overall, I enjoyed the submarine/ocean setting, the...

The Slippery Slope audiobook review

OMG QUIGLEY! And Violet and Quigley! They're adorable even if basically nothing whatsoever happens between them. The meaning behind VFD is finally revealed, though it doesn't mean all that much :P Can someone tell me what is up with The Man with No Hair and The Woman...

The Carnivorous Carnival audiobook review

A pretty solid continuation of the series overall, but there were a few things that bothered me a bit. The first is the "freaks." I just didn't really find the constant self-pity about being ambidextrous and flexible funny. A few times are funny, sure, but it was just too overdone...

The Forest in the Hallway review

You know how sometimes really strange can be cool and different? That wasn't this book. It was weird from start to finish; one of those where I turned the last page and thought "what was the point?" It started out promising with Beatriz walking down...

In the After review

Where to begin with the awesome that is this book? The synopsis doesn't define Them so I was just kind of assuming They were zombies. Now, I love me some zombies (like, for reals, I'll take zombies over faeries/vampires/werewolves/etc. any day), but I'm loving...

Below review

This was one of those "just okay" reads. It was a quick enough read and fairly entertaining, but I wasn't terribly invested. The mystery was kind of interesting, but I figured it out for the most part from the beginning. The hints seemed a little obvious to...

The Hostile Hospital audiobook review

This is definitely not a hospital I'd want to go to. The volunteers only sing an annoying song, so busy with singing they can't actually do anything to help fight disease. Paperwork is the most important thing in the hospital. And that's not to mention all the doctors eager to...
