Ardulum Trilogy – J. S. Fields & Lynn Norris (narrator)

I read this trilogy a few months ago and absolutely loved it, from the world-building to the multi-layered characters to the complex storylines. I’m happy to say the audiobooks are even better. I’m in awe of the narrator’s ability to give life to so many different characters and so many species. I couldn't wait to … Continue reading Ardulum Trilogy – J. S. Fields & Lynn Norris (narrator)

Twice Upon a Train – KA Moll & Emily Beresford (narrator)

This is a solid second-chance rich girl / poor girl romance. Keegan Wade fell irremediably in love with the first girl she ever kissed. They were 14 and 13 and separated immediately after that kiss. When they meet again, by chance, twenty-six years later, Keegan’s love is still as strong. On the outside, she’s done … Continue reading Twice Upon a Train – KA Moll & Emily Beresford (narrator)

Desperate Times – Hildred Billings & Marie Smith (narrator)

The premise for this story is rather sad. Two lonely women in a tiny town, not another lesbian in sight. They’re both butch (Tess more than Sidney), attracted to very feminine women. Certainly not to each other. Yet they decide to give it a try. They’re both looking for companionship in the long run but … Continue reading Desperate Times – Hildred Billings & Marie Smith (narrator)

The Amnesia Project – Barbara Winkes & T.J. Richards (narrator)

[Edit October 27th 2019: I've realized this story had made more of an impression on me than I thought when I wrote this review, so I'm upgrading it from 4 to 5*.] I needed something to get me out of my head. Not sure a dystopian novel was the right choice! I have no regrets … Continue reading The Amnesia Project – Barbara Winkes & T.J. Richards (narrator)

Heartsick – Tracey Richardson & C.C. Sinclair (narrator)

Heartsick

Edit: I read this book first, in April 2019, then listened to the audiobook a few months later, in August. The good thing about a patchy memory is that even if I’ve already read a novel, it feels new to me most times. I remembered how Angie and Vic had met but that’s about all. … Continue reading Heartsick – Tracey Richardson & C.C. Sinclair (narrator)

Confessions from a Coffee Shop (Confessions #1) – T.B. Markinson & Lori Prince (narrator)

I really like Cori. I didn’t think that would happen with one of T.B. Markinson’s characters since, as I wrote before, they’re usually too real and flawed for me to like them. I enjoy reading about them but I wouldn’t want them as friends. Yet there's something different about Cori. She’s awkward and self-deprecating in … Continue reading Confessions from a Coffee Shop (Confessions #1) – T.B. Markinson & Lori Prince (narrator)

Waltzing on the Danube (Americans Abroad #1) – Miranda MacLeod & Stephanie Murphy (narrator)

I’m not an easy person to amuse. Most jokes fly over my head (like, miles over) and I have a kinda dry sense of humor mixed with childlike wonder that not too many people understand (my wife does and that’s all that really counts) so I never expect to laugh out loud when I read … Continue reading Waltzing on the Danube (Americans Abroad #1) – Miranda MacLeod & Stephanie Murphy (narrator)

Safe Passage (Black Flag #1) – Rachel Ford & Barbara Rich (narrator)

safe-passage

You might not know this yet but I’m a Star Wars fan. Not the type who can list all the planets or the different ships (my memory doesn’t work that way), but put John Williams’ music on and I’m in heaven. Princess Leia is my hero (as was Carrie Fisher), I love Chewbacca, R2D2 and … Continue reading Safe Passage (Black Flag #1) – Rachel Ford & Barbara Rich (narrator)

Confessions from the Heart (Confessions 0) – T.B. Markinson & Lori Prince (narrator)

It’s funny how much I enjoy T.B. Markinson’s books even when I dislike the characters, which happens more often than not for some reason. Probably because they feel like real people, far from perfect. It’s funny because I’m usually totally character-driven. I forget plots and stories but I remember people. Though in this case, I … Continue reading Confessions from the Heart (Confessions 0) – T.B. Markinson & Lori Prince (narrator)

Chord – Chelsea M. Cameron & Sophie Daniels (narrator)

As with Style, this is a simple story of two people falling in love. There’s not a lot of angst within the relationship itself, it’s more everyday-life angst: first time away from home, coming out to yourself and others, falling in love for the first time, that kind of stuff, along with Chase’s anxiety and … Continue reading Chord – Chelsea M. Cameron & Sophie Daniels (narrator)
