Furia by Yamile Saied Méndez

Narrated by Sol Madariaga I listened to the majority of this book but ended up reading the last two chapters because I was too impatient.

How to Save a Life by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke

Narrator: Timothy Andrés Pabon I had an advance reviewer’s copy of this book, but when I saw the audio available on my Kindle account, I took the chance to listen to it instead of reading it. The narrator did a good job, but the book was not for me. It is always hard to make… Continue reading How to Save a Life by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke

We have straight-talking, honest Molly who is living on the streets and… Continue reading Brave Girl, Quiet Girl by Catherine Ryan Hyde

The Girl Beneath the Sea (Underwater Investigation Unit #1) by Andrew Mayne

I have reviewed another series by the author previously on the blog:     Narrated by Susannah Jones  I keep hoping for a change, thinking that I will write more regularly but it has yet to happen. Maybe today is the day. I went back to reading multiple books simultaneously to kickstart the next binge of… Continue reading The Girl Beneath the Sea (Underwater Investigation Unit #1) by Andrew Mayne
