🎧 Series review:  Sands of Arawiya by Hafsah Faizel @hafsahfaizal @SteveWestActor @fionahardingham @MacmillanAudio #LoveAudiobooks

The spectacular covers and the audio narrators were what first drew my attention to Sands of Arawiya series by Hafsah Faizal.  However, it is the vividly rendered world and compelling characters that make this YA Fantasy series so special. Ms. Faizal draws on the mythology of ancient Arabia as the backdrop to this duology, resulting […]

🎧 Winterkeep by Kristin Cashore @kristincashore #XantheElbrick @LLAudiobooks @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks

Over the years, I’ve enjoyed the Gracing Realm series by Kristin Cashore.  Bitterblue in particular is a favorite character of mine throughout the series and so I was so happy to see that Winterkeep is another story that involves Bitterblue, years after she became the Queen. It is time to explore an entire new land […]

Robin’s Audiobooks for November / December 2020 Challenge Updates @kimbacaffeinate @AudiobookMel @BookofMyHeart @angels_gp #LoveAudiobooks

                  These reads were all audiobooks.  Three were library books, the rest I purchased Rhythm of War really dropped my rate of reading since it is a massive 50+ hours of epicness.  This is my all-time favorite Epic Fantasy series and no one does them better.  Sanderson […]

Audio: Nickle Brickle’Bee by Sterling Nixon @SterlingNixon2 #JasonFinch  @sandjpublishing #LoveAudiobooks

Nickle Brickle’Bee is the first book of the In the Heart of Earthworks series.  The cover looks a little crazy and that could be because there really is a chariot race involving hedgehogs, lizards, rabbits, rats and others small animals at one point in the story. Our story follows Nickle on his journey from the […]
