Audio: Over on the Dry Side by Louis L’Amour @mrkawfy @KirbyHeyborne @kakuralasombey @PRHAudio ‏ @sophiarose1816 #LoveAudiobooks

A dead body, an empty cabin, a mysterious girl, a lone rider, and a gang after a treasure make for a very exciting western adventure.Β  I was looking forward to a tale told alternating between a sixteen year old boy with lots of grit and a hard man with cold gray eyes from two talented […]

I really loved this!Β  It has typical fantasy world where women have almost no choices. Their primary worth is to bear an heir for men in the patriarchal society. Men control the magic. Men can also choose to send women to a whorehouse for the “unwanted.”Β  This includes wives who can’t have children, or if […]

I enjoy a dark mystery with a fast pace.Β  The Liar’s Child was reviewed by friends and I always appreciate the North Carolina setting.Β  Β  The style was a little disconcerting as it jumped back and forth in both point of view and the time period. The point of view is often handled this way, […]

Anne: I saw blurbs which sounded cool, so I requested Kill the Farm Boy. I have read some of Kevin Hearne and wanted to try Delilah Dawson, so it was an opportunity.Β  Melanie told me she was getting the audio, so we are doing a joint review. More accurately, Melanie has made several points and […]

I have enjoyed all my listens to this author’s work.Β  I’m more than halfway through the Temeraire series.Β  Uprooted is one of my all-time favorite audiobooks.Β  So I was very excited for Spinning Silver.Β  It did not disappoint. Russian fairy tales set in a historic fantasy world are not pleasant places for women.Β  They have […]

This dark world is not a positive place for women. They are either confined in a convent or they are servants and brood mares for men. Even young girls are beaten and tied up at the whim of men. The world-building is vivid and historical. The characters are so well-developed. It is woven from Russian […]
