The Forest Tales Series: Saving Vengeance, Desperate Forest, The Jabberwocky Princess #BookReview

I have to thank Julie over at One Book More for introducing me to this series. You can visit her blog to read her thoughts. There are still two more books I need to read, but I will get to them shortly. I enjoyed this novella and the first two full length books in this series. They are all available on Kindle Unlimited if you have that service.

Two Fantasy Audiobooks: A Far Wilder Magic, Everworld #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge

I don’t read a lot of fantasy, but both the covers and the synopsis of these YA stories called to me. I did read/listens with both of them and very much enjoyed both of these books. If you enjoy a descriptive story, without all the violence that is often in fantasy stories, then pick these two up.

Historical Fiction Stories: The Saints of Swallow Hiill, Surviving Savannah, The Hidden Village #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge

Over the last little while I have been reading and listening to some Historical Fiction. What I love about this genre is learning about events or people I did not know about. All three of these do that for me. I did read/listens with all of them and enjoyed both formats. At one time all were provided to me by the publishers upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

Three Audiobook Mini-Reviews: When You Get the Chance, The Last Chance Library, The Golden Girl’s Getaway #Audiobook #BookReview @BoldwoodBooks @PRHAudio @MacmillanAudio 

Three books that I enjoyed for various reasons. They were all uplifting, but very different from one another. I did read/listens with two of them and added three new narrators to my list of ones to listen to.

Reading my Zodiac: The Ten Thousand Doors of January #BookReview #Audiobook

45421716. sx318

Last month, I wrote a post Books to Read Based on my Zodiac Sign: Saggitarius (November 22 – December 22). I planned on picking one of the books to read before December 22nd and based on reviews I read, I selected The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow and chose to listen to the audiobook as it was available at my library. I really enjoyed it and am glad that is the one I selected. Scroll down for my thoughts.

Two Wonderful Books with Dogs: One Memoir, One Fiction #BookReview

I loved both of these books, although they were very different. When Harry Met Minnie is a memoir by Marthat Teichner dealing with love of Bull Terriers and how that brought two women together in a heartbreaking yet wonderful friendship. A Dog’s Courage is a story from W. Bruce Cameron and is the second book in A Dog’s Way Home series. It is very timely, dealing with forest fires and the animals that get displaced by them. Fiction, but realistic. Both of these books were provided by the publisher upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

Fable and Namesake by Adrienne Young #AudiobookReviews

Welcome to a world made dangerous by the sea and by those who wish to profit from it. Where a young girl must find her place and her family while trying to survive in a world built for men.

Young Adult Fantasy is a genre that I have been dabbling in, so when I saw some great reviews for Fable from bloggers and reviewers that I follow and trust, I decided to give this duology a try and I am glad I did. Emma Lysy narrates both of these books and does a great job. This is the first time I have listened to a book she narrated and will definitely put her on my list of voice actresses that I enjoy. Her accents and various voices for both the male and female characters were varied and well performed. It is always great to hear the same voices within a series, trilogy or duology.
