Review: The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings #1) by J.R.R. Tolkien (Audible Edition)

I am about to come at you with an unpopular opinion. I haven’t read Lord of the Rings, I watched the films but was completely lost and hated them so much. I’ve tried to watch them so many times and simply gave up.

This is a series that I want to love so so so bad. I have multiple copies of the books but I am afraid to read them because I hated the movies so much and feared I would find the books boring.

Having discovered audiobooks recently, I thought this would be a good time to try my hand at reading this classic series especially with this fantastic narrator. After all, Tolkien is like the inventor of the modern fantasy genre so it’s basically required reading in my opinion!

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: The Kingdom of Copper (The Daevabad Trilogy #2) by S.A. Chakraborty

This book was on my preorder list before I even finished the first book. The first book was unbelievable and stood out as a favorite thought out the year.

I loved the first book and couldn’t wait for the long year to pass before I was finally able to return to Daevabad. The world that the author created was rich, diverse, interesting, and above all the heroine, Nahri, was a force to be reckoned with.

In the days and weeks leading up to the release of this book, I thought briefly that I should go back and re-read the first book again, but decided against it since I was sure everything would come floating back to me without issue .

Review: The Beast’s Heart by Leife Shallcross

This book immediately caught my eye when it came across my desk for review. The cover is not only beautiful, but memorable and eye-catching. Plus it is marketed as a retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

I am of course a huge Belle fan and I was eager to jump on this one and made it my special Valentines Day read. Lately there has been a lot of interest in writing fairy tale retellings and I am one hundred percent on board with that!

The other thing that caught my eye was that it was more of a conventional retelling rather than having a modern twist or removing the ;magic’ from the story, this book stayed true to form by keeping the magic. Continue reading “Review: The Beast’s Heart by Leife Shallcross”
