Audio Review: Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane

I started Unholy Ghost in October on my Nook. I could not get past chapter five. Either I wasn’t in the mood for it or it was the slang that got me. “You won’t talk to me, you don’t talk to anyone else, you just hang around here in your precious ghetto with all these fucking crazy people who talk like they’ve never heard a proper word spoken in their lives….” But some blogger friends keep raving about the series. So I decided to give it another try but this time around I did it in audio book format, thinking it would help me get into the slang that is used by so many of the characters. BINGO. I’ve read other reviews where people had […]


Audio Review: Second Grave on the Left by Darynda Jones

At the end of the audio book there is a short interview with Jones and she states that Charley is a kind of mix between Stephanie Plum, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Lorelai Gilmore from the Gilmore Girls. Now I’ve not read the Plum series yet nor have I watched the Gilmore Girls but I can see some of Buffy in Charley. Both Charley and Buffy are one of a kind (well Buffy is you don’t count Faith and the end of the last season). Charley like Buffy is special and finding out more about herself and her powers as she goes. Yeah she is the grim reaper, but what does that all mean and what cool powers does she have? Charley finds out a […]

I had checked this audio book out back during the summer and could not get passed chapter 4 so I stopped listening to it. I don’t normally give a book a second chance but since I’ve joined Cocktail Society Book Club and the book for February is book 3 in the series, Third Grave Ahead; I thought I’d give it another shot. Maybe I just wasn’t in the right mood the first go around because I did finish it and enjoyed this time around. I really liked the idea of a series about a woman Grim Reaper and that’s what drew me to it in the first place. Ms. Jones has written a great smart ass heroine in Charley Davidson. The snarky one liners and hint of romance between Charley and Reyes was a […]

I am really enjoying this series; each book is funnier than the last. And Amanda Ronconi is the prefect person to bring this world and characters to life on audio. There is just enough mystery to the plots to keep you reading/listening to see who the bad guy is in each book. After reading a lot of darker books lately it’s nice to take a step back and enjoy the lightness of Harper’s world she has created in the Nice Girls series.Nice Girls Don’t Live Forever picks up not long after Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men ended. Jolene and Zeb are married and expecting a baby. Jane and Gabriel are still having some relationship issues. And we get a good healthy dose of my […]

I’ve read a lot of vampire books, some dark, some smut filled and it’s nice to read and it’s nice to take a break from some of the darker Urban Fantasy ones to enjoy a light funny read. With vampires are named Dick Cheney (not the ex-vice prez) how can it not make you laugh.  In this installment of the series the gang deals with Zeb and Jolene’s wedding. Let me just say if I had a family that was as nosey as Jane, Zeb and Jolene’s I would have moved or gone to jail for killing a few of them. It actually got to the point to where it got a little annoying. I kept thing that all three of them needed to grow […]

I’ve had this series on my TBR list for a while and after reading How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf by Harper I knew that I had to move this series up my reading list. Then my lovely husband got me a 12 months membership to Audible.com for my birthday, so Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs was my 1st “purchase”. I love the sarcastic humor that Harper uses in her books. Nice Girls is a fun light-hearted read with mystery and romance set in the South were vamps are out to the public. Jane is turned in order to save her life but she does an excellent job of adapting to her new life. Plus it doesn’t hurt that her sire is the yummy Gabriel. Nice Girls […]

I am so done with this series. You would think after 10 books Betsy’s character would have grown. WRONG. She is still the same dumb, shallow blonde stereo type; which was fun for the first few books but it’s gotten old and on my nerves. Undead and Undermined picks up where Undead and Unfinished left off. Betsy is trying to come to grip with the new time she returned to; after timing traveling with her sister Laura. Against advance, Betsy changed a few times in the past before coming back to the present and now she can see the error of her ways but as usual it’s too late. Betsy is not the typical heroine. Most of the time she is the reason the day […]


Audio Review: Sapphique by Catherine Fisher

Audio Review: Sapphique by Catherine Fisher

  I really enjoyed listening to Incarceron and after its cliffhanger ending, I knew my next audio book would be Sapphique. Sapphique picks up a few months after Incarceron ends. We get to see what happens to Finn after he escapes Incarceron; but is the grass really greener on the other side? I believe that is the main theme throughout series. While Incarceron is told through Finn and Claudia’s point of view, Sapphique is told through multiple points of views. Which makes sense since half of the characters are on the inside of and the other half on the outside of Incareron. Sapphique and Incarceron are not light reads and I would recommend that you read them and not do the audio book if you […]
