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.

The Glass Ocean by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig, Karen White (Audible Edition)

To say that the three “W” writers are some of my favorites is an understatement. I love all three of these authors and for different reasons. They each tell such a fantastic story and I love that they collaborated on this book together!

I knew they all co-wrote another book, The Forgotten Room, but I haven’t yet read that one. When this one came out, I ordered the ebook but they as usual, it got buried in my endless TBR list.

Then, I discovered audiobooks and was thrilled to see that this one came up as a suggestion based on my wish list. I knew that it was the right time to read this book, so I downloaded it and started listening. Continue reading “The Glass Ocean by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig, Karen White (Audible Edition)”

Review: Circe by Madeline Miller, Perdita Weeks (Narrator)

As I have recently shared with you all, I only just got into audiobooks. I read—or rather listened—-to a few that I really liked and saw instantly that I could benefit from an Audible subscription.

One of the first books recommended to me was Circe. My sister highly recommended it and so did just about everyone on my Instagram poll.

I was eager to read this one because frankly it’s been everywhere and I have been dying to read it. Everyone said Perdita Weeks was a wonderful narrator so I was excited to use my very first Audible credit on this book! Continue reading “Review: Circe by Madeline Miller, Perdita Weeks (Narrator)”

Review: Northanger Abbey: An Audible Original Drama by Anna Lea (Adaptor), Emma Thompson (Narrator)

Everyone keeps telling me that I need to try audiobooks. I have only really done one or two in the last year or so and I found them to be fun but at the same time it just seemed like it would take me forever to ‘read’ a book that way.

I am a speed reader so depending on the book, I can crank out a few every week but with an audio book I worry that I am stuck listening at the narrators own pace. Then I ended up with Becoming by Michelle Obama on my Audible account and even though it took me forever to ‘read’ the book, it was so relaxing to have someone reading to me.

I found that I enjoyed the whole audio book experience and that I could easily work it into my days. My kid is the worst napper on the planet so a lot of the time I have to sit with him or lay with him and if he sees me reading on my iPad he wants it to play games. But with audio books I can pop in my head phones and lay there until he falls asleep with the lights out and listen to a great story!

So long story short, I ended up loving Audible and started looking for something entertaining to listen to next. Enter this dramatization of Northanger Abbey. Continue reading “Review: Northanger Abbey: An Audible Original Drama by Anna Lea (Adaptor), Emma Thompson (Narrator)”
