• My favorite audiobook narrators

    Hey guys! Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

    This week’s topic is favorite audiobook narrators. So let’s get going!

    1. Michael Crouch (The Gravity Of Us)
    2. Sullivan Jones (The Gravity Of Us)
    3. Chris Andrew Ciulla (The Gravity Of Us)
    4. Marisa Calin (The Left-Handed Booksellers Of London)
    5. Jeanette Illidge (The Prison Healer Series)
    6. Frazer Douglas (The Song Of Achilles)
    7. Ellen Quay (Oathbound)
    8. Briggon Snow (The Infinite Noise)
    9. James Fouhey (The Infinite Noise)
    10. Charlie Ian (A Neon Darkness)

    I’ve only listened to a couple of audiobooks so far, but I am planning on listening to a lot more. Check out these audiobooks!

  • Spring cleaning book tag!

    Ok, so I just found out about this a few days ago, but basically you just respond to a couple spring cleaning related prompts with books. If that makes sense. I found this idea from kristin kraves books, but it was originally made by Page to Page

    Alright let’s go.

    It’s time to make your bed, but you’re going to have some friends over later and want to pick the perfect book to place on your nightstand for them all to see that you’re “reading”. Which book do you choose?

    I talk about this book so much and I literally want everyone to read it. This is definitely one of the books I’d want to display for my friends.

    Oh no! The house need dusting, but you just can’t book that book you’re reading down! What book would you buy on audio just so you could continue the story while cleaning?

    This book gave me all the feels and was so hard to put down. I actually listened to the audiobook of it, while I was cleaning and doing other things because I didn’t want to stop reading it!

    Darn it! The ceiling is leaking! Turns out Mass-Market Paper backs are the best things to soak water up! Which popular book do you use to soak up the water?

    Ok… I just have to say that this book really disappointed me. I listened to the whole thing on audiobook and considered dnf-ing it a couple times. It was one of those books that kept seeming like it was going to get better… and then not.

    Bathrooms need a good scrubbing, and your 2007 Cosmos are a little outdated and need replacing. What book do you place in the bathroom for some light reading for when people need to take care of business?

    This book was really easy for me to read, and it’s definitely a light read. I think this one would be perfect for this situation.

    Family is coming over, but you have no idea what to make for dinner! You read somewhere that tearing up the last chapter of a book whose ending you hated and sprinkling it in a casserole dish makes for the perfect meal! Which book do you choose?

    I despise this books ending. It didn’t make any sense and didn’t clear anything up, at the same time as not making it interesting enough to read the next book. I would have no problem ripping out these last chapters.

    Organization is key, right? When it comes time to organize your bookshelf, you realize you have enough room (and money) to get three new books! Which books do you buy?

    Unfortunately, two of these books are not actually released yet, so I’d be saving that shelf space for them. Or at least trying to.

    Finally, some peace and quiet! But, before you can relax, you realize you forgot to send your aunt a thank you gift for the lovely “ADULT LIFE FOR DUMMIES” book she gave you for Christmas (maybe she’s trying to tell you something?). What book do you send to her to show her how much (this is sarcasm) you appreciate her gift? 

    I don’t really know why I picked this one for this, but it seemed like a funny way to respond. I wasn’t too impressed by this book, but I do feel like it taught some good lessons.

    Hope you enjoyed this post!

  • A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

    ✨️Book Review!✨️

    Book summary:

    “When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.

    At least, he’s not a beast all the time.

    As she adapts to her new home, her feelings for the faerie, Tamlin, transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But something is not right in the faerie lands. An ancient, wicked shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it, or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.”

    Author: Sarah J. Maas

    Genres: Fantasy, Romance, Young adult, Fiction

    Age rating: 16+

    Overall rating: 5/5😄

    My honest review:

    I love this book. It had me feeling all sorts of things. Sadness at Feyre and Lucien’s backstories, anger at Amarantha for everything she has done, happy when the characters triumph, and so much more. The characters were as well developed as the world, and I found that many times throughout this book it felt as if I was in the story with them.

    This book is in that weird spot where it’s slower paced at the beginning but speeds up near the end. And in this book, that was not a bad thing. The time spent on all the details, and feelings Feyre had was amazing, and just made the story that much better.

    There is a pretty explicit sex scene however, so I would recommend you don’t read it if you are under 16.

    I really enjoyed this book and though it doesn’t feel necessary to read the next book right away, it is definitely one of my most anticipated books on my TBR.

  • 5 book places I’d love to live in… and 5 I’d stay away from.

    Hey guys! Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

    This week’s theme is a TTT rewind. (Pick a previous topic that you missed or would like to re-do/update.)

    Today I will be sharing five places from the worlds of my books that I would love to live in… and another five that I definitely don’t want to live in.

    Let’s start with the ones I like:

    1. Mount Pelion – The Song Of Achilles
      This beautiful mountain sounds like the perfect place to get away to. There is a cave made of pale rose quartz, the walls are hung with strange bronze implements, meant for surgery, instruments hang in one corner, lyres and flutes, and next to them tools and cooking pots. The cave’s ceiling has lines and specks of dye shaping the constellations and the movements of the heavens. Just a short walk from the cave is a cool river for swimming in. There is plenty of game and berries and fruits for food, and clean water for drinking. Everything is hidden away from other people and just sounds very peaceful.
    2. Hogwarts – Harry Potter
      I think it’s probably pretty clear why I’d choose this one for my list, but just in case let me tell you why. I can just imagine spending hours wandering Hogwarts’s halls, meeting the friendly ghosts looking for clues to the newest mystery. Hogwarts is such a magical and amazing place and honestly, I’d love to be there for just one day if I could. From classes to quidditch to hanging out with my friends I’m quite certain I’d have a blast at this school. I have to say however, that I would definitely miss my parents.
    3. The winter palace – The Prison Healer
      Who wouldn’t want to go to a big palace in the middle of the winter? I just know that I would spend countless hours exploring this palace. The inside and the surrounding property. I would love practicing my fighting skills with Jaren, Kiva and Caldon. The balls, the mysteries and everything makes me so intrigued by this place.
    4. The Shire – The Lord Of The Rings
      The shire is such a happy place full of festivals parties and the friendly hobbits. The shire is also very beautiful. The fields and forest surrounding the cute little cottages make this place the perfect fairytale home. I would love to spend some time here. Especially if my friends and family were tagging along.
    5. The spring court – A Court of Thorns and Roses
      The Spring Court is a land of rolling green hills, lush forests, and clear, bottomless lakes.  The grounds are encased by woods that stretched so far one can barely see the distant line of the forest. Magic didn’t just abound in the bumps and the hollows – it grew there. To be in a place this magical and beautiful, and with Lucien, Feyre and Tamlin? I’d love it here. Pus the beauty of this place is incredible. Not only outside but the manor as well. The manor is veiled in roses and ivy, with patios, balconies, and staircases sprouting from its alabaster sides. Inside, it is even more opulent. Black-and-white chequered marble floor shone, flowing to countless doors and a sweeping staircase. A long hall stretched ahead to the giant glass doors at the other end of the house, and through them is a second garden, grander than the one out front. I know I’d always be exploring, and I’d spend countless hours in the library.

    And now, for the places I would really not like to visit:

    1. Zalindov – The Prison Healer
      I would not want to be stuck in this prison. The even worse than usual conditions, the horrible prisoners and guards, and no chance of escape? No thank you. I can already imagine the anxiety and claustrophobia I would feel here. Plus, no hot showers!! No way. I’d be staying far away from this place.
    2. Ketterdam – Six of Crows
      Honestly, this place may not be too bad, but with all the gang’s sickness and death in this area it definitely doesn’t give me warm vibes. I would be literally terrified everywhere I went. And I’d really not like to end up in one of those gangs somehow. Basically, I’ll be staying out of this city.
    3. Literally anywhere in Scythe
      I would really rather not live my life not knowing if I was going to be chosen for gleaning and gleaned while I was just peacefully enjoying my day. Not that I would actually be able to enjoy my day, because I’d be so overwhelmed by fear. I would also be afraid that someone else in my family would be gleaned, or one of my friends. And what if I was chosen to be a Scythe’s apprentice!? No thank you, this world would be too much for me.
    4. Panem – The Hunger Games
      Panem is a sovereign nuclear state and democratic constitutional republic that was established sometime after a series of ecological disasters and a global conflict brought about the collapse of modern civilization.” Sounds like a nice place am I right? No. You can count me out. The whole reaping system and the fact that they even have the games is just crazy. And then there’s how badly most of the districts are treated, and how well others are. And of course, there’s the capital… nuh-uh. I feel like I might go after Katniss has defeated Snow, but even then…
    5. Ikhara – Girls of Paper and Fire
      I feel like this place just has a really messed up government. Like the whole thing with the king and his “girls” just… 🤮 And in that reality if I was going to the palace, it would only be for one of two reasons… 1. I was going to be killed, or, 2. I was going to be another one of his “girls”
      No freaking thank you.

    * No hate to any of these books! I actually love them all, and you should definitely read them!

    Hope you enjoyed this post! What are some book places you want to go too? What are some you want to stay away from?

    Have a great day and happy reading!

  • Scythe by Neal Shusterman *Spoilers!*

    Book Review!

    Book summary:

    “A world with no hunger. No disease. No war. No misery. Humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now scythes are the only ones who can end life, and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

    Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe, a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own. They learn living in a perfect world comes only with a heavy price.”

    Author: Neal Shusterman

    Genres: Young adult, Fantasy, Dystopian, Science fiction, Romance

    Age rating: 13+ Just note that there is some gore!

    Overall rating: 5/5😄

    My thoughts on this book:

    Honestly, I’m impressed! This dystopian novel with a controlling government had me hooked throughout the whole book. I have to say I felt a little worried when I made it through pretty much the whole book unfazed… even though this a book literally set on people being killed. Or should I say gleaned.

    The people, places, feelings and overall the whole book was pretty well written, descriptions were great, and I felt like I was actually in the book quite a lot.

    *Spoiler alert!*

    I did end up crying when Scythe Volta died, and when Citra had to ‘kill’ her brother.

    I was really surprised when Rowan killed his mentor scythes like, hold on what? It took me a minute to process what had happened. I felt that same way at the end when it turned out that Rowan was now gleaning the bad scythes. Aka, the ones who took pleasure in killing, like his late mentor Scythe Goddard.

    Citra’s character also had a few surprises. In the end of the book when Citra and Rowan are at Conclave and Citra got chosen as Scythe, it surprised me when she let Rowan escape. It had seemed as though she was finally listening to her mentor’s warnings about Rowan, but no, Citra was just as stubborn and trusting as ever. In the end I can’t tell if her decision to let Rowan go was for the best, or if Rowan will turn the world to chaos once more.

  • 10 fantasy books I never hear about

    ✨Top Ten Tuesday! ✨

    Hey guys! Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

    This week’s topic is a genre freebie, so I decided to do Ten books that I never hear people talk about. Hope you enjoy!

    1. How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather

    “Salem, Massachusetts is the site of the infamous witch trials and the new home of Samantha Mather. Recently transplanted from New York City, Sam and her stepmother are not exactly welcomed with open arms. Sam is the descendant of Cotton Mather, one of the men responsible for those trials and almost immediately, she becomes the enemy of a group of girls who call themselves The Descendants. And guess who their ancestors were?

    If dealing with that weren’t enough, Sam also comes face to face with a real live (well technically dead) ghost. A handsome, angry ghost who wants Sam to stop touching his stuff. But soon Sam discovers she is at the center of a centuries old curse affecting anyone with ties to the trials. Sam must come to terms with the ghost and find a way to work with The Descendants to stop a deadly cycle that has been going on since the first accused witch was hanged. If any town should have learned its lesson, it’s Salem. But history may be about to repeat itself.”

    2. Oathbound by Victoria McCombs

    Beware the waters. The dangerous deep brings ruin to all.

    Emme has spent her life avoiding anything to do with pirates. But the fates are cruel, and now a hidden sickness leads her to partner with pirates for the one thing that can save her—a cure on an island none are certain exists.

    The pirate captain’s secrets are darker than the deep and threaten to kill them all. His obligations are tinged with betrayal, for his oathbind must be fulfilled. To ignore it is to invite peril of unimaginable destruction.

    As the adventure unfolds, the sea takes more than she expects and the sea gives more than he wants.

    5/5😄 13+

    3. Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

    “Each year, eight beautiful girls are chosen as Paper Girls to serve the king. It’s the highest honor they could hope for…and the most demeaning. This year, there’s a ninth. And instead of paper, she’s made of fire.

    In this richly developed fantasy, Lei is a member of the Paper caste, the lowest and most persecuted class of people in Ikhara. She lives in a remote village with her father, where the decade-old trauma of watching her mother snatched by royal guards for an unknown fate still haunts her. Now, the guards are back and this time it’s Lei they’re after — the girl with the golden eyes whose rumored beauty has piqued the king’s interest.

    Over weeks of training in the opulent but oppressive palace, Lei and eight other girls learns the skills and charm that befit a king’s consort. There, she does the unthinkable — she falls in love. Her forbidden romance becomes enmeshed with an explosive plot that threatens her world’s entire way of life. Lei, still the wide-eyed country girl at heart, must decide how far she’s willing to go for justice and revenge.”

    5/5 😄 16+

    4. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins

    “It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the tenth annual Hunger Games. In the Capital, eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to outcharm, outwit, and outmaneuver his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute.

    The odds are against him. He’s been given the humiliating assignment of mentoring the female tribute from District 12, the lowest of the low. Their fates are now completely intertwined — every choice Coriolanus makes could lead to favor or failure, triumph or ruin. Inside the arena, it will be a fight to the death. Outside the arena, Coriolanus starts to feel for his doomed tribute… and must weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire to survive no matter what it takes.”

    5/5 😄 14+

    5. Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly

    “Isabelle should be blissfully happy – she’s about to win the handsome prince. Except Isabelle isn’t the beautiful girl who lost the glass slipper and captured the prince’s heart. She’s the ugly stepsister who’s cut off her toes to fit into Cinderella’s shoe … which is now filling with blood.

    When the prince discovers Isabelle’s deception, she is turned away in shame. It’s no more than she deserves: she is a plain girl in a world that values beauty; a feisty girl in a world that wants her to be pliant.

    Isabelle has tried to fit in. To live up to her mother’s expectations. To be like her stepsister. To be sweet. To be pretty. One by one, she has cut away pieces of herself in order to survive a world that doesn’t appreciate a girl like her. And that has made her mean, jealous, and hollow.

    Until she gets a chance to alter her destiny and prove what ugly stepsisters have always known: it takes more than heartache to break a girl.”

    4/5 😄 13+

    6. An Elephant in the Garden by Michael Morpurgo

    “With Lizzie’s father fighting in World War II, her mother takes on the job of a zoo keeper to provide for her family. Lizzie, her mother, and her eight-year-old brother Karli have become especially attached to an orphaned elephant named Marlene. The bombing of Dresden is imminent and soon, so the zoo director explains that as a precautionary measure all the animals must be destroyed so that they’re not running wild through the city. Lizzie’s mother persuades the director to allow Marlene, the elephant, to come stay in the family’s garden.

    As predicted, Dresden is bombed, and the family, including Marlene, is forced from the city. Lizzie and her family aren’t alone. Thousands of Dresden residents are fleeing to find somewhere safe to stay. Lizzie’s mother has to find a different route out of the city to keep the elephant and the children safe from harm. Once they reach the abandoned home of their relatives, they come across Peter, a Canadian navigator who, by putting himself at risk of capture to save the family, gains their trust.

    This unlikely grouping of family, elephant, and enemy turned ally come together beautifully to illustrate the importance of love, resolve, and hope.”

    4/5 😄 11+

    7. The Left-Handed Booksellers of London by Garth Nix

    “In a slightly alternate London in 1983, Susan Arkshaw is looking for her father, a man she has never met. Crime boss Frank Thringley might be able to help her, but Susan doesn’t get time to ask Frank any questions before he is turned to dust by the prick of a silver hatpin in the hands of the outrageously attractive Merlin.

    Merlin is a young left-handed bookseller (one of the fighting ones), who with the right-handed booksellers (the intellectual ones), are an extended family of magical beings who police the mythic and legendary Old World when it intrudes on the modern world, in addition to running several bookshops.

    Susan’s search for her father begins with her mother’s possibly misremembered or misspelt surnames, a reading room ticket, and a silver cigarette case engraved with something that might be a coat of arms.

    Merlin has a quest of his own, to find the Old World entity who used ordinary criminals to kill his mother. As he and his sister, the right-handed bookseller Vivien, tread in the path of a botched or covered-up police investigation from years past, they find this quest strangely overlaps with Susan’s. Who or what was her father? Susan, Merlin, and Vivien must find out, as the Old World erupts dangerously into the New.”

    4/5 😄 13+

    8. The Shadow Prince by David Anthony Durham

    “On the night before his twelfth birthday, Ash learns that he was born on the same day as Prince Khufu, which makes him eligible to compete to be the prince’s shadow, a coveted position as the friend and bodyguard of the boy destined to be pharaoh of all of Egypt. At first, Ash can’t believe it, but when a floating royal barge takes Ash and his mentor to the bustling, magical, solar-powered capital, things get real.

    What awaits Ash and the candidates is deadly–five days of dangerous tests filled with demon fighting, monster slaying, and magical spells–each overseen by a different Egyptian god. Ash finds two friends willing to fight by his side–the first friends he’s ever made. But there are candidates who will lie, cheat, and even harm others to win. Not all will survive, and only one can become the prince’s shadow.

    To make matters worse, Ash is up against Lord Set, the devious god of chaos, who is secretly working to make the candidates fail. But if they do, the very survival of the kingdom is in peril. Can Ash and his new friends save Egypt? And will any of them survive to become the shadow prince?”

    4/5 😄 8+

    9. Emilie and the Hollow World by Martha Wells

    “While running away from home for reasons that are eminently defensible, Emilie’s plans to stow away on the steamship Merry Bell and reach her cousin in the big city go awry, landing her on the wrong ship and at the beginning of a fantastic adventure.

    Taken under the protection of Lady Marlende, Emilie learns that the crew hopes to use the aether currents and an experimental engine, and with the assistance of Lord Engal, journey to the interior of the planet in search of Marlende’s missing father.

    With the ship damaged on arrival, they attempt to traverse the strange lands on their quest. But when evidence points to sabotage and they encounter the treacherous Lord Ivers, along with the strange race of the sea-lands, Emilie has to make some challenging decisions and take daring action if they are ever to reach the surface world again.”

    4/5 😄 13+

    10. Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce

    “Young Daine’s knack with horses gets her a job helping the royal horsemistress drive a herd of ponies to Tortall. Soon it becomes clear that Daine’s talent, as much as she struggles to hide it, is downright magical. Horses and other animals not only obey, but listen to her words. Daine, though, will have to learn to trust humans before she can come to terms with her powers, her past, and herself.”
