ANGUISH (THE JOURNALS TRILOGY BOOK ONE) AUDIO BOOK by D.M. EARL – Review by Katie Matthews

Anguish – Audio Book

By D.M Earl

5 stars

 

This was a really interesting book to listen to. I did wonder when I read the synopsis how the narrator would get the authors words to come across as they are meant but I was really impressed. The story itself was really emotional at times and hearing Quinn’s words read to me felt like she was really telling me her story.

I really enjoyed listening to Anguish and I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Another fantastic read from this very talented author. I absolutely adore reading her books; I am so invested in the characters and their stories from the beginning until the very end. I can already tell that this series is going to be just as amazing as her previous one; Twisted Secrets is full to the brim of action and romance. Xander and Riley’s story was great to read, I really enjoyed the characters – especially Xander who is everything I wanted him to be and more!! I am so excited to read the rest of this series! I can’t wait for more!!

Bound by Secrets (Deadly Isles Special Ops Series Book 2) by Amy McKinley – Review by Katie Matthews

Bound by Secrets (Deadly Isles Special Ops, #2)Bound by Secrets by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I am loving this series so much! I really loved book 1 and couldn’t wait to dive into book 2 and I wasn’t disappointed at all! Kayla and Jaxon were just wonderful to read about, I loved them both from the very beginning and I was so invested in their story throughout. I loved that when they met again there was this lovely genuine connection between them. Both of them were really lovely characters. There were some unexpected twists in the story too which made the story exciting to read.
I am really looking forward to the next book in the series!

Hungry Business: A Short Story by Maria DeBlassie – Review by Katie Matthews

Hungry Business: A Short StoryHungry Business: A Short Story by Maria DeBlassie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

This is definitely one of those books that after you’ve finished you think – what did I just read? And how did the author manage to get all that into 17 pages? I think it’s safe to say this is definitely not one of the genres I read but I have read the author previous book so thought I would give it a go. The writing is excellent, the pace and flow is excellent and whilst the content was a little too gory for me I cannot fault the authors work at all. Lovers of the thriller/horror genre will love this short story and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Goddess of Everything by Paul DeBlassie III – Review by Katie Matthews

Goddess of EverythingGoddess of Everything by Paul DeBlassie III
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

This was a really interesting and intriguing story to read and whilst completely out of my comfort zone with regards to content and genre I really enjoyed it. The author has a really engaging writing style that pulls you into the story straight away. The characters were really interesting to read about, I always find this author brings such originality to his characters and storylines and it was no different in this book. There were moments when I definitely had chills reading what I was reading and I was on the edge of my seat on more than one occasion!
Overall a really good read and one that I would highly recommend.

A Hole (Alpha Bet Guys Book 1) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Katie Matthews

A Hole (Alpha Bet Guys Book 1)A Hole by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Yet again another 5 star read from Ms Alexander – I never bother reading the synopsis to her books now I just grab it and go because I know it’s going to be a great read and A Hole was no exception. It’s a great start to this new series and although one of this authors shorter books it was in no way lacking her sparkle. It was funny and entertaining, I loved the characters Ace and Ella, and they were so great to read about. Ace captured my heart form the beginning and I just knew Ella wouldn’t be able to resist him! I was rooting for them the whole way through the story!
I’m really excited for the next book in the series!! I highly recommend this book!!

Vengeance (The Sundown Series Book 5) by Courtney Konstantin – Review by Katie Matthews

VengeanceVengeance by Courtney Konstantin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Vengeance was a great read; it is the fifth book in the Sundown series but could be read as a standalone. I have read others from the series and also recommend them. The author has a great writing style that really draws you into the story and although it is a YA read I really enjoyed it. The storyline was good and engaging and I really liked the characters. Max was a nice character to read about and her story definitely kept me interested the whole way through. The author’s attention to detail was another huge positive for this book.
I would definitely recommend this story and think YA readers would really enjoy it.

The Traveler: Chimera Rising (The Traveler Series, Book of Eleanor Book 3) by Shannon Nemechek – Review by Katie Matthews

The Traveler: Chimera Rising (The Book of Eleanor 3)The Traveler: Chimera Rising by Shannon Nemechek
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Another wonderful time traveling story in this series by Shannon Nemechek! This story carried on straight from book 2 so they definitely need to be read in order and as I anticipated they story was just as well written with a great pace. The author’s vivid imagination really shines through and allows to me to imagine what is going on with the characters. I was immersed in the story from beginning to end. I really liked the characters; they are well developed and imaginative. I think out of the three stories this is probably my favourite so far.
This series is a must for any historical/time traveling fan! You won’t be disappointed!

At All (The Adams Brothers Book 3) by Mindy McKinley – Review by Katie Matthews

At All (Adams Brothers, #3)At All by Mindy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

This is the 3rd book in the Adam Brothers series and I think it might have been my favourite (although I did really enjoy the first two). Seb was such a surprise for me, having met him in the previous books I wasn’t 100% sure about him but my mind has definitely been changed! I loved Maelie, she was a great character and her and Seb together was amazing to read about! I loved every second of their story. They both have their own issues to overcome but together they were wonderful!
The story was brilliant, well-paced with a great flow. The characters were great to read about and as I said before this is definitely my favourite from this series! I definitely recommend this book and the whole series!

Linda Gets Her Groove Thing (The Green Room Chronicles, Book Two) AUDIO BOOK by J.D. Frettier – Review by Katie Matthews

Linda Gets Her Groove Thing – Audio Book

By JD Frettier

4 stars

 

This is the second audio book that I have listened to by this author and again I thought it was a really good and highly entertaining listen, it was quirky and had so many laugh out loud moments. The things that happened to Linda really did make me laugh, there were definitely some things that I was not expecting either. Great to see Dee and Bonnie again too!
The things that go on in that Green Room as so funny and the author has created some amazing characters that I loved listening about. I love the uniqueness of the storylines and find that I am fully invested in the story the whole way through.
