Happy Wednesday! Sophia Rose is here today sharing THE TIGER QUEEN and shares the story of Genghis Khan’s wives and daughters. Grab a cuppa and see why Sophia loved it.
GWENDY”S BUTTON BOX by Stephen King & Richard Chizmar was a riveting, twisted audio listen. Narrated by the wickedly talented Maggie Siff, King and Chizmar worked their magic and transported me to the summer of 1974 as our tale begins on the Suicide Stairs in Castle Rock. Would you accept Gwendy’s Button Box?
I enjoy the writings of Seanan McGuire and those under her pen name Mira Grant. When I saw DUSK OR DAWN OR DAWN OR DUSK I immediately one-clicked. McGuire offers a unique take on ghosts that took us from the cornfields of Kansas to the inner city streets of New York. A brilliant world and concept that left me hankering for more.
I have read nearly all of Chris Bohjalian novels and have loved them. The Sleepwalker was on my December reading list when the opportunity presented itself to review The Premonition. I could not resist. This is a very short prequel narrated by Cady McClain on audio and available as an eBook. Bohjalian takes the reader to a quiet Vermont town and shares the events of one summer.
If you follow Caffeinated you know, I am picky about young adult reads and rarely do I ever read a contemporary romance. Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Lousie Gornall spoke to me from the synopsis to the cover and well here I am.
The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep: A New Way of Getting Children to Sleep by Carl-Johan Forssén Ehrlin intrigued me with its sleep technique, so I decided to review it. Soothing narration shares the story of Ellen the Elephant using soothing voices and light music to induce you child to drift off to sleep.
Deja Who by MaryJanice Davidson is the first in a new urban fantasy series where folks are aware of their past lives. It explores reincarnation as it shares famous characters from the past and introduces heroine Leah Nazir who navigates her own tragic past, helps clients with theirs, and waits to be murdered.
Fourth of July weekend, despite my pile of ARCS and my long TBR list I was in the mood for something different to read. Can you relate? My Kindle Oasis has Ads that appear on the screen saver and The Body Reader had teased me all week-long. On impulse, I clicked read more, read the synopsis and clicked BUY, only to discover as a Prime member I could read it free! This was my first time taking advantage of the lending library and I am eager to try it again next month.
Flight from Mayhem by Yasmine Galenorn is the second novel in the Fly by Night urban fantasy series. While I enjoyed Flight from Death, I was rewarded with a stronger story in Flight of Mayhem. Dragons, murder, supernatural creatures, snark and more made this an addictive read.
Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire is the first in her new series by the same name. I chose to listen to the audiobook narrated by Cynthia Hopkins and was rewarded as we entered Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children. Quirky and original this short audio delivered all that I love about McGuire’s storytelling.
