Audiobook Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Audiobook Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

“We are liars. We are beautiful and privileged. We are cracked and broken.” First word that comes to mind: meh. This book was just meh. I was so excited for this book, especially after all of the awesome reviews starting flowing in. I waited and waited until it was released, then grabbed the audio right away. I don’t know if I had just built it up in my head too much, but man, it really fell short for me. This… Read more »

Audiobook: Crossed by Allie Condie

Audiobook: Crossed by Allie Condie

“In the end you can’t always choose what to keep. You can only choose how you let it go.” I have very mixed feelings about Crossed, It was just OK for me in a lot of ways. The romance was lackluster, the journey Cassia went on did not feel real to me and the rebellion seemed so far fetched and out of reach. I still like Cassia, although I think she needs to pull her head out of her rear… Read more »

Audiobook Review: The Things You Kiss Goodbye by Leslie Connor

Audiobook Review: The Things You Kiss Goodbye by Leslie Connor

The Things You Kiss Goodbye was so unique from other contemporaries that I have read. After seeing the beautiful cover and then reading the synopsis, I knew that this was one that I had to read. Bettina is different from other girls at her high school, Greek, artisitic, and quiet with a rebellious style that catches the eye of Brady a popular basketball star. Brady’s clean cut image actually convinces her very over protective “Bumpas” (Greek=Father) to allow her to… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

Audiobook Review: Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

“It was time to let go of the mad desire to remember. It was time to start living whatever life would come. In the present, not the past.” “Five strangers. Countless adventures. One epic way to get lost. ” That opening line of the synopsis was all I had to read to know I would be reading this book. Maybe that that mostly because of my obsession with road trip books. Either way, I knew I was going to be… Read more »
