Take Two Review: The Pearl Sister (The Seven Sisters #4) by Lucinda Riley (Audible Edition)

As I have been making my way through this series again, I was wondering how I would feel about this one again. I read it for the first time through back in early 2018, so not that long ago. The other two books I originally read a few years ago and then the third one was a first read for me.

But this one I had read not that long ago, so the story is still relatively fresh in my mind, so I was eager to see how I felt about CeCe’s story this time around.

CeCe was my least favorite of the sisters and having freshly come off of Star’s story, I was acutely aware of how much I disliked CeCe….again. Riley does have a knack for making you forget why you didn’t like a particular sister though, so I was eager for that to happen again, because frankly I just never cared for CeCe in any of the books, but especially after the third one…..but I did give it 4.5 stars the first time around, so let’s see if that rating held up this time around.

Review: The Shadow Sister (The Seven Sisters #3) by Lucinda Riley (Audible Edition)

The Seven Sisters series has been a long time favorite of mine, yet somehow I managed to miss the third book!

I started off reading the first two books from the publisher and then a long time seemed to pass on then The Pearl Sister showed up for review and I assumed it was the next book, as I always seem to forget about Star in the family anyway!

But as soon as I started The Pearl Sister I realized that I had missed this book somehow, but by then I was too engrossed in CeCe’s story to put it down so I just skipped The Shadow Sister all together.

Now that I am doing a re-read of this whole series, I figured it was high time that I read this one so I downloaded it on Audible and listened to it while running errands with my son, which took a few weeks but I found that this book was a diamond in the ruff!

Take Two Review: The Storm Sister (The Seven Sisters #2) by Lucinda Riley (Audible)

So as some of you know, I am going back through the Seven Sisters series by Lucinda Riley but this time listening to them on audiobooks. Right now it’s kind of an ‘at your own pace’ type of deal since I am listening to them in my car when I run errands so it’s taking forever to make my way through.

But I love Lucinda Riley so I am eager to keep listening and enjoying her books. When I first reviewed this book, I had a hard time with it mostly because it was so sad. While it was still enjoyable and a testament to Riley’s writing abilities, I just felt so sad while reading through it the first time.

That’s why I was most eager to re-read this one and see if I felt the same thoughts this time around. Continue reading “Take Two Review: The Storm Sister (The Seven Sisters #2) by Lucinda Riley (Audible)”

Take Two Review: The Seven Sisters (Seven Sisters #1) by Lucinda Riley (Audible)

I read this book for the first time back in the summer of 2015 and I remember how much I loved reading this book and especially how it made me fall in love with a new author.

Since starting this book, I have continued with the Seven Sisters books and every time marvel at Riley’s story telling abilities.

I recently read the latest Seven Sisters novel, The Moon Sister, and was thinking how much I love this series as a whole and will be so sad to see it come to an end. I have all the books but with my review schedule, it’s often hard to fit in rereads of old favorites.

Well thanks to Audible, I don’t have to worry about fitting in old favorites. I have recently become such a huge fan of audiobooks because of how much driving I do with my kid. I mean it’s not like we do a TON of driving, but a couple of trips to the store or running errands throughout the day can often add up to a lot of listening! And frankly I am sick to death of the radio so I thought why not try Audible?

I splurged and got the $6 Romance package add on and found that the first Seven Sisters book was on there for free! I downloaded it and started listening while I waited for my new month credit. Continue reading “Take Two Review: The Seven Sisters (Seven Sisters #1) by Lucinda Riley (Audible)”

Review: The Gown: A Novel of the Royal Wedding by Jennifer Robson (Audible Edition)

This book has received a huge amount of praise and it’s basically been everywhere I’ve turned in the last few months. Magazines, social media, recommended reading on Goodreads, and staff picks in book stores. Everywhere.

I ordered the book when it first came out but then it got lost in all my other reading and largely I have been able to accomplish a lot more ‘reading’ by listening to audiobooks. So I decided to get this book on Audible and see if I could make some headway with it.

Obviously this book appealed to me for a number of reasons. First of all, I love all things royal and second it included a fashion element which I knew next to nothing about and honestly has never considered before.
