My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I received a copy of the audiobook for my honest review.

The story was not good. At first I thought it was the fault of another terrible narrator, but I bought the kindle version so I could just read the story. Still a terrible story. I love horror, but this wasn’t horror. I was bored and had to stop myself from skipping ahead.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, Narrated by Amanda Dolan

Red Queen (Red Queen, #1)Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The audiobook of this was wonderful. Narrated by Amanda Dolan, I fell into this story easily. Her voices consistent, I cannot imagine anyone else narrating these books.

This story seems familiar, and like the somewhat typical story of an undesirable rising to power by luck and chance, but it is more. I felt like I’d heard this story many times, but since I enjoy it, I didn’t mind. Then suddenly after I’d listened to about 80% of the book, something changed.

I’ve read reviews where people gave up reading this book 40%, 50%, 60% into the story, because they were bored. Don’t be them. Wait for it…

Wait for it…

The Short Life of Sparrows by Emm Cole, Narrated by Pamela Lorence

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I did not see this story coming! I figured I’d give it a listen, and find myself entertained by the usual YA type of book. I was so wrong, and so happy to be wrong. The only assumption that can be safely made about Emm Cole’s book is that it is about young adults. Past that, it’s nothing I expected.

A town filled with secrets, magic, and terrible visions is just the beginning of what makes this story strange and fascinating at the same time. The narrator, Pamela Lorence, did a wonderful job. Her voice is easy to listen to, which made it easy for me to “read” for long periods.

If you know of any young adults (or not so young, such as myself) who are in need of something to read, this will not disappoint!

The Keepers by Donna Augustine, Narrated by: Laurel Schroeder

The Keepers (Alchemy, #1)The Keepers by Donna Augustine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

On the jacket: “Two days ago, Jo Davids was a waitress by night and a college kid by day, with the unnerving problem of things floating around her.
One day ago, Jo’s sexy boss, Cormac, noticed her for all the wrong reasons when she witnessed a man transform into a monster in the basement of his casino.

Today, Cormac ordered her shot. If he’s real lucky, she won’t die. Because if she does, all hope is lost.”

Whaaaaat?! Yeah, I’m in.

I enjoyed this book so much, that I found myself thinking about it when I wasn’t listening to it. It’s paranormal with a hint of romance, and it’s not at all what I expected. It’s refreshing to read a book where the author has found a way to introduce a classic story in a whole new way. I’m already on to book 2 of the series! The narration is good, and works for this story.
