Audiobook Wrap Up & Mini Reviews

Audiobook Wrap Up & Mini Reviews

While at work, I listen to audiobooks. I have listened to so many books over the last couple of months, and I don’t always share a full review for audiobooks. So this post will cover the Audiobooks that I listened to in October, November, December and January and I will share a mini-review on the book if I didn’t write a full review for it.

At first it was really hard for me to transition from reading physical books to listening audiobooks. At first I was hesistant to add it to my Goodreads because I thought they didn’t count unless I was actually reading them.

One thing that helped me transistion from physical books to audiobooks was listening to the audiobook of a book that I have already read. This makes it so that I don’t have to focus all of my brain power on the story, and I can still get work done!

I will oftentimes start a series and not finish it, so what I have been doing the past couple of months is restarting series via audiobook and then reading the physical book. It saves a lot of time this way by not re-reading books that I have already read, and it helps me remember all of the characters and the storyline.

So without further ado let’s get into the books I have been listening to as audiobooks:

Red Queen

(Red Queen #1)

This is a re-read for me – you can read my original thoughts on the book here: Book Review: Red Queen.
I re-read this book so that I wouldn’t have any excuses to finish reading this series. I own Glass Sword, so hopefully it is a book that I pick up soon!
I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.
**Kind of predictable
**Fun magic system
**Enjoyable characters
**Entertaining
Just remember, “Anyone can betray anyone.”

Love & Luck

 

This is Jenna Evans Welch’s second book. I read Love and Gelato on Netgalley early last year and it was such a light and fun read that I decided to give Love and Luck a try. You can read my review of Love and Gelato here: Book Review: Love & Gelato.

Scarlet

Pretties

(Uglies #2)

 

I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars!

This was another re-read and I have to say that the audiobook made the experience so much more enjoyable. In the first book, Uglies, I was immediately drawn back into Tally’s story and I was so excited to listen to Pretties as an audiobook! It is so entertaining!

Young Adult – Science Fiction – Dystopian

Go Set a Watchman

(To Kill a Mockingbird #2)

 

I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

I absolutely loved To Kill a Mockingbid, so when I found out there was a book written about Scout as a young women, it immediately caught my eye.

This book is narrated by Reese Witherspoon and it was enjoyable to listen to.

It isn’t as entertaining or as inspiring as to Kill a Mockingbird, I think this comes from the main character being an adult and not a child.
