Audio Review: The Siren by Kiera Cass

Audio Review: The Siren by Kiera Cass

The Siren by is one of my new favorite reads. A standalone romance about the mythical creatures, the book is unlike anything I’ve ever read or I guess in this case listened too.

Review: True Born by L.E. Sterling

I had a hard time getting into True Born by . There is a lot of info-dump at the beginning as the author sets up the world, but once I got past I’d say the first third of the book I was hooked. True Born takes place in a dystopian society where a mysterious plague […]
