I was so excited when Stephenie Meyer announced she'd finished Midnight Sun, this was a long time coming and totally worth the wait. Rewriting Twilight from Edwards experience was brilliant, and I wish so much that she'd redo all the books from Edwards point of view, I know she said she won't but a girl can dream. Thank You Stephenie for letting us finally know what Edward was thinking and feeling after all these years, it was completely worth the wait!

Not what I was expecting...

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I’m not normally a zombie fan but this wasn’t anything like I expected. I thought it was a fresh take on an old story. The characters were easy to love, hate, cheer for and hope for. Finty Williams is very easy to listen to and did a fantastic job narrating this book. I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series.

A great second book in the Cursebreakers series. I can hardly wait to listen to the 3rd book, A Vow So Bold and Deadly.
I really enjoy the retelling of classic fairy-tales and this series didn't disappoint me so far.

Wish I hadn't seen the movie first...

Overall its great book and a fun twist on the whole zombie thing, I just wish I hadn't seen the movie first because I loved the movie. The book still was funny and quirky and I'm glad I listened to it. I would recommend reading the book first, there's much more to these characters than is portrayed in the movie.

Great Retelling of Classic Fairy-tales

This review is for the whole Lunar Chronicles series.
A very inventive retelling of the classic fairy-tales. I love how Marissa Meyer was able to twist these classics and weave them all together. It exceeded my expectations. Rebecca Soler also does a great job narrating these stories, she has distinct voices for each of the characters and is very easy to listen to. I will absolutely listen to these books again. Great Series!!

This review is for the whole 'A Court of Thorns and Roses' series.
This has become my go to listening book series for when I'm in between books or just want to revisit a good book. The books keep you on your toes, there's lots of action, romance and comedy. You can't help but fall in love with each of the characters. Jennifer Ikeda does a great job narrating the first two books and Amanda Leigh Cobb is just as fantastic narrating the last two books. I can't wait for Sarah J Maas to write the next book in this exciting series.

This review if for the whole Throne of Glass series. Absolutely loved this series. The characters are so thoughtfully written you can't wait to hear what happens next. Each book is surprising, entertaining and keeps you wanting more. Elizabeth Evans does a fantastic job narrating these books, she really brings the characters to life. I can't wait to see what Sarah J Maas writes next.

Wasn't what I expected.

This was a bit of a shocker. I'd seen the movie and enjoyed it, in my experience the book is always better than the movie...this was not the case. I was shocked that the book and movie were nothing alike except for character names. I wasn't totally disappointed with the book but it was not what I was expecting.

I'd heard so much about this book and love the TV series so I was shocked that I disliked this book so much. I found the story telling choppy, it didn't flow well. Overall a very disappointing experience.
