Audiobook Review: The Scorpio Races

The Scorpio Races By Maggie Stiefvater
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Release Date: October 18th, 2011
Format: Audiobook
Summary Via GoodReads

My Rating: ★★
Goodreads ★ Amazon ★ B&N ★ TBD
It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line.

Some riders live.
Others die.

At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn't given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.

This book was a hard book for me to get into. At times I found it really interesting and at other times I just had no desire to turn on the overdrive app. I'm not sure if this was a me thing, or about where I was in the book. Ultimately it was a challenging book for me but I ended up liking it a lot in the end.

The concept is hard to get your head around, but if you think about the Kelpie myth then it makes it easier to accept The Water Horses that appear on this little Island every year. I haven't read any books that deals with this myth so I thought it was an interesting and complicated topic to tackle, and I think Stiefvater does a good job with it.

I listened to the audiobook for this one, and I ended up really enjoying the narrators. I was really glad that they chose to do a male and female narrator to voice the perspectives of Puck and Sean. I think for me it really helped me to get into their heads and really understand what they were about. It really helped to understand why they both were willing to risk their lives to compete in these races.

Even though the title of this book is called "The Scorpio Races" the book isn't really about the races themselves. They are only really in the very end of the book. It's more about preparing for the races and what forces people to do desperate things when they are in bad situations. It's really about the human condition, and how everyone on this island has everything to lose.

There is a little bit of a love story between Puck and Sean. I thought it was pretty obvious that these two would wind up together, but it was written as a slow burn love story that I really enjoyed. There was not a lot of setup to get these two together and Sean is a man of few words, but I loved how it was subtly written, and not kisses every two pages.

Stiefvater has been a hit or miss author for me. I loved The Raven Boys, but hated Shiver, so I took a chance on this one and ended up really enjoying it. I think I also liked that it was a standalone story that I could enjoy and not have to read any more books. She definitely has a way with words and I do enjoy her writing style. If you are looking for a standalone book or you enjoy Stiefvater's work and haven't read this yet, I would recommend it.

ARC Review: Soulmated

Soulmated by Shaila Patel
Publisher: Month9Books
Release Date: January 24th, 2017
Format: Egalley
Source: copy provided by publisher for review
My Rating: ★★

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. Quotes taken from ARC may or may not be in the published edition.

Goodreads ★ Amazon ★ B&N ★ TBD
Two souls. One Fate. 

Eighteen-year-old Liam Whelan, an Irish royal empath, has been searching for his elusive soulmate. The rare union will cement his family's standing in empath politics and afford the couple legendary powers, while also making them targets of those seeking to oust them.

Laxshmi Kapadia, an Indian-American high school student from a traditional family, faces her mother's ultimatum: Graduate early and go to medical school, or commit to an arranged marriage. 

When Liam moves next door to Laxshmi, he’s immediately and inexplicably drawn to her. In Liam, Laxshmi envisions a future with the freedom to follow her heart. 

Liam's father isn't convinced Laxshmi is "The One" and Laxshmi's mother won't even let her talk to their handsome new neighbor. Will Liam and Laxshmi defy expectations and embrace a shared destiny? Or is the risk of choosing one's own fate too great a price for the soulmated?
This was a hard book for me to get through. It was one of those books that I wanted to like way more than I did. There were parts of this book that I thought worked really well, and parts that just missed the mark for me. I find sometimes I just can't get over things that don't work for me and it ends up souring the rest of the book for me. Soulmated unfortunately was a book that was okay, but I just didn't totally love.

So what I think worked the best in this novel was Laxshmi. This book was about an Indian-American girl written by an Indian-American woman, and that was pretty clear. Which means it was awesome! This was an Own Voices novel, and I was really glad I was able to read accurately about a culture that was not my own. With Laxshmi's point of views I really got a feel for her struggles with identity and her strained relationship with her mother. This part of the novel felt so real, and I loved reading about the story in her point of view. I was actually more interesting in learning how the conflict between her and her mother was going to be resolved. I was kind of disappointed we don't see a resolution in this novel, but I believe this is going to be a series so I am assuming this will be addressed later. 

I initially was intrigued by this novel because it was Urban Fantasy, and I would like to read more books from this subgenre. The plot of the novel is that Liam (an Irish Royal Empath) is looking for his soulmate. The concept of him searching for her was interesting, so there is definitely instalove in this novel. Since this is pretty much the point of the plot I didn't mind that at all. What I did mind was that I still have no idea what an Empath is or how this ability that Liam has is really about. I felt very lost when there was talk about Liam being a "threat" because I didn't really understand how this hidden society works. I felt very lost with all this, and it made it harder for me to enjoy this book. 

Another thing that just didn't click with me was Liam's voice. I loved reading from Laxshmi's point of view, I really got a feel for who she was and she felt real to me, but I could never really feel that from Liam. They way his viewpoint was written felt awkward to me and the aggressive use of Irish slang was a little distracting. The dialogue from him felt very two-dimensional and it was almost as is the order of words were mixed up. It was too distracting for me to really care about his side of the story. I recommend this book? I would.  There is definitely a market for this novel and I know there are other readers that will swoon over the love story between Laxshami and Liam. I think readers will enjoy the soulmate concept in this novel and be intrigued by the empath society.

Have you read this book yet? What did you think? Did you struggle with Liam's point of view like I did?

Top Ten Tuesday: Hidden Gems

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme is focused on underrated or hidden gem books we've read in the past year. So...I actually didn't make it to ten this week, and also some of these I might have read longer than a year ago. I wanted to keep them on this list, because I feel like I never see anyone talk about these ones.

I think I've talked about this book before on my blog, but I don't think I've really seen that many other bloggers talk about it. I loved this book, and I really only knew about it because the author came to another book event I attended.

This was one of the first books I reviewed as an ARC for Month 9 books, but I haven't heard anything about it since I reviewed it. The plot was a little predictable if you read a lot of sci-fi, but I think it's my most underrated book on this list. 

This is the sequel to the City of Stairs book, and I don't think it suffers from second book syndrome at all. It's a really good sequel that could be read on its own if you haven't read the first book. Highly recommend this one.

This book had been on my TBR list for years, but I finally read it this past year, and it was a pleasant surprise. I'm not sure I really knew what this book was about, but I thought it was a great story about loss and how we overcome it. 

I reviewed this one as an ARC last spring, and I really enjoyed it. I believe this is supposed to be a series, but I haven't seen any news about a second book. I definitely want to read that, and soon!

Okay, I know that I've talked about this book a lot, but I never heard of it before I listened to the audiobook in November. It's definitely one of my most underrated books that I read last year. It's a heavy topic and made me so angry, that I want it to make other people angry too.

I actually read this one a few years ago, but I think it's a great novel, and not a lot of people talk about it. If you are interested in a Peter Pan retelling that paints him as a villain this is definitely a novel for you!

What books on on your list this week? Did you have any trouble getting to ten books this week too?

Audiobook Review: William Shakespeare's STAR WARS Verily, A New Hope

William Shakespeare's STAR WARS: Verily, A New Hope By Ian Doescher
Publisher: Quirk Books via Random House Audio
Release Date: October 1st, 2013
Format: Full cast audiobook
Summary Via GoodReads

My Rating: ★★
Goodreads ★ Amazon ★ B&N ★ TBD
Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas’s epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. ’Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearsome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.

Reimagined in glorious iambic pentameter, William Shakespeare’s Star Wars will astound and edify Rebels and Imperials alike. Zounds! This is the audiobook you’re looking for.
This is a book I have been meaning to read for a long time, but I wasn't sure which medium to do so in. I hadn't read a Shakespeare play in a very long time, and I know that I really need to concentrate on those. So would reading the actual text be too hard for me? Or if I did the audio, would I just get lost listening to it and not pay attention? Rather than actually answer these questions for myself, I just kept putting off reading this.

However, I listen to a lot of Star Wars podcasts, and Ian Doescher just kept coming up, doing interviews with podcasts I love and talking about why he decided to write this and why he chose to have R2D2 written with an aside to the audience. This was also when I found out that the first one he wrote was done as a full cast audio version, so I finally had my decision made for me.

If you have never had the experience of listening to a full cast audiobook, I highly recommend it. It is definitely a different experience from an audiobook with one or maybe even two narrators. If you've ever listened to a Star Wars audiobook one of the narrators might sound familiar, and the author himself even does a little voice work in this audio. So I definitely recommend listening to the audiobook version of this one. It was really engaging and kept my attention.

If you know the story of the first Star Wars movie (A New Hope, not A Phantom Menace) then this book will be easier for you to follow. Essentially that is all that this book is, just the plot of A New Hope but written as if it is a Shakespearean play. This was an audio I listened to with a smile on my face the entire time, because this mash up just worked so well! As mentioned earlier, Doescher does something a little different with the droid R2D2. In the movies all we hear from the little droid is beeps and boops, but other than C-3PO we have no idea what he is saying. In this play, R2 does asides to the audience in English to tell us what he is thinking. I think that was my favorite part about this because it gave a little more depth to a mysterious character all Star Wars fans know and love.

Another thing I found interesting about this play was that Doescher had to work hard to keep it in iambic pentameter. So sometimes the words weren't the actually words but sounded similar enough just so the syllables would work in the meter. It's definitely a test that this author really knew his stuff when it came to rhyme and meter and wanted this mash up to be told authentically as if it was written by Shakespeare.

I'm not sure if I'm ready yet to try the next installment of this mash up, but I definitely enjoyed this fun play. If you are a fan of either Shakespeare or Star Wars, or both, I highly suggest you give this one a try.

Review: Dragonfly In Amber

Dragonfly In Amber By Diana Gabaldon
Publisher: Seal Books
Release Date: July 1st, 1992
Format: Paperback, 947 page
Summary Via GoodReads

My Rating: ★★★1/2

Goodreads ★ Amazon ★ B&N ★ TBD

For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland's majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones ...about a love that transcends the boundaries of time ...and about James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his ....

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire's spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising ...and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves...
I adored the first book in the Outlander series, so I was super pumped to read the sequel.  However, the second book in the series took me a long time to get through. It took me an actual year to read it as I got distracted by other books I had to read for review and such. I think a part of the problem was that some parts of this novel were just boring to me.

This book was a little bit different from the first novel. The first one leaves off with Jamie & Claire going to Paris, and this one starts off and Claire is back in modern times with a grown daughter.


I wouldn't say this is a spoiler because it's pretty clear that Claire at some point went back into The Stones to go back to her own time, but we don't know why. The story unravels back to the past as Claire starts to tell the story to her daughter Brianna and Roger Wakefield. 

So remember when I said parts of it where boring? Yeah Paris was were I got really bored with the novel. It just wasn't as exciting as the previous book, and I just wanted to get to the action but it didn't seem like there was a lot of action in Paris. There was just a lot of sitting around and going to parties in Paris, which just didn't excite me at all. I've heard this complaint from a couple other people so I'm glad I'm not alone. I was still invested in this story, so I decided to press on because I still wanted to know WHY Claire went back to her own time.

I think another part of what prevented me to be fully invested in this novel was that it was really more about politics and how Claire & Jamie had to play the game to try to undermine the Jacobite Rebellion. I did find it pretty interesting that Claire was able to convince her Scottish husband to go against a cause he should have been supporting. 

What I liked about this book was that it doesn't just end with Claire explaining why and how she came back through the stones. It goes a little bit further and explores the 1968 line that Geillis Duncan gave to Claire in this first book. This was a pretty important and awesome part about the book. The end leaves you wanting more, and I just wanted to start the third book. Which I have but I can't invest time in it yet because I have some review books to read first. 

So all in all I have some mixed emotions about this book. Did I like it? Yes. Would I recommend it? Yes, if you are invested in Claire & Jamie and want to know more about what their story holds, I would recommend reading it. Just don't be discouraged about the Paris storyline, I do think after that part is over it gets more interesting. So yes if you are a fan of this series I highly recommend continuing reading it by picking up this second installment. 

Have you read Outlander? Any plans to continue the series? If you've read any of the later books, which is your favorite?

End of The Year Survey

Where has this year gone?!? I can't believe it is 2017, and that I didn't read quite as many books as I would have liked. 😫  So here are my results for the end of the year book survey created by the lovely Jamie from The Perpetual Page Turner and here is the link back to the originally post if you are interested in doing it as well!

2016 Books Stats

Number Of Books You Read: 57
Number of Re-Reads: None
Genre You Read The Most From: Sci-Fi/Fantasy

Best in Books

1. Best Book You Read In 2016?

This was a hard one, but I think I have to say A Thousand Pieces of You. It was a book I put off for a very long time, but it really made me adore Claudia Gray's writing.

2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?

Unfortunately I think that has to be the Perilous Journey of the Much-Too Spontaneous Girl. I thought it was going to be this fun steampunk novel, but I found the character to be too immature that I couldn't enjoy the plot. Actually I take that back, the sequel made me feel more this way, so in hindsight it made the first novel better.

3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read?

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. I wasn't really a fan of Gone Girl (the concept was cool, the hype was too much) but this novel was amazing! I literally had no idea who had really done the killings in this one.
 4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)?

I honestly don't think I have an answer for this one. Has anyone actually listened to my recommendations?

 5. Best series you started in 2016? Best Sequel of 2016? Best Series Ender of 2016?

I'm going to say The Outlander Novels by Diana Gabaldon (Although technically I started the series in 2015). As for best sequel & series ender, my pick is for Winter By Marissa Meyer.

 6. Favorite new author you discovered in 2016?

Have to say Claudia Gray here. I read 3 of her books in 2016.

7. Best book from a genre you don’t typically read/was out of your comfort zone?

I don't read much out of comfort zone, so maybe just Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

 8. Most action-packed/thrilling/unputdownable book of the year?

I have to say A Thousand Pieces of You again. I blew through that book.

 9. Book You Read In 2016 That You Are Most Likely To Re-Read Next Year?

I don't really ever reread, so none.

10. Favorite cover of a book you read in 2016?

I have to say A Thousand Pieces of You AGAIN. I definitely judged a book by its cover with this one, but it took me so long to get to it.

11. Most memorable character of 2016?

Alana from Saga.

12. Most beautifully written book read in 2016?

This was a really tough one to answer, but I think I have to say Lost Stars by Claudia Gray. That was the book that really made me go back to Gray's other books to read. It really grabbed me.

13. Most Thought-Provoking/ Life-Changing Book of 2016?

Hmm...probably Little Brother By Cory Doctorow.

14. Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2016 to finally read?

15. Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2016?

Listen, you have to ask me this question as I'm reading the books, because afterward I have book amnesia.

16.Shortest & Longest Book You Read In 2016?

Technically the shortest was Ms. Marvel Vol. 1 and the longest, and boy it felt like it, was Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. 

17. Book That Shocked You The Most

Sharp Objects, what a messed up story. I did not see the ending coming.

18. OTP OF THE YEAR (you will go down with this ship!)

Hands down Claire & Jamie from the Outlander series. I love them so much!

19. Favorite Non-Romantic Relationship Of The Year

Omg, probably Nimona & Blackheart from the Nimona graphic novel. Their relationship made me laugh so much.

20. Favorite Book You Read in 2016 From An Author You’ve Read Previously

The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan.

21. Best Book You Read In 2016 That You Read Based SOLELY On A Recommendation From Somebody Else/Peer Pressure:

I actually surprisingly didn't get peer pressured into reading any books this year. All of them were books I wanted to read.

22. Newest fictional crush from a book you read in 2016?

Did I say Jamie Fraser already?

23. Best 2016 debut you read?

None, because I don't think I read any debuts this year.

24. Best Worldbuilding/Most Vivid Setting You Read This Year?

The city in City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett.

25. Book That Put A Smile On Your Face/Was The Most FUN To Read?

This one goes to Nimona again.
26. Book That Made You Cry Or Nearly Cry in 2016?

27. Hidden Gem Of The Year?

The Secret of Raven Point, although I think it has been out for some time.

28. Book That Crushed Your Soul?

29. Most Unique Book You Read In 2016?

30. Book That Made You The Most Mad (doesn’t necessarily mean you didn’t like it)?

A Fine Imitation by Amber Brock. If you read my review you will probably know why. 

Your Blogging/Bookish Life

1. New Favorite book blog you discovered in 2016?

I want to say Jess's blog Curiouser and Curiouser because she's awesome, but I think we've been interacting for longer than that. 

2. Favorite review that you wrote in 2016?

Maybe my ARC review of  In The Shadow of the Dragon King. 

3. Best discussion/non-review you had on your blog?

Hmm...maybe the Sci-Fi Month discussion about how I am breaking up with Farscape.

4. Best event that you participated in?

Obviously Sci-Fi Month!

5. Best moment of bookish/blogging life in 2016?

Nothing particular, but I've just enjoyed interacting with new book bloggers and making more connections.

6. Most challenging thing about blogging or your reading life this year?

Finding the times to stop playing videogames to actually read! It's also been hard to read because before I lived with my boyfriend I read a lot before bed, but now we seem to watch a lot of TV and then go right to bed. It's definitely something I want to change this year.

7. Most popular post this year on your blog?

8. Post you wished got a little more love?

Just any of my Deanna Listens feature posts. It seems like no one really cares about them, which is a shame because I love writing them. 

9. Best bookish discover (book related sites, book stores) ?

I don't really have one.

10. Did you complete any reading challenges or goals that you had set for yourself at the beginning of this year?

Hahah no! I was only 3 books behind on my goodreads challenge this year. 😡

Looking Ahead

1. One book you didn't get to in 2016 but will be your number 1 priority in 2017?

2. Book you are most anticipating for 2017 ( non-debut)?

I'm really into my backlists right now, so I don't really have one.

3. 2017 debut you are most anticipating?

See above.

4. Series ending/a sequel you are most anticipating 2017?

Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan. I know it's already out but I just haven't gotten to it yet.

5. One thing you hope to accomplish or do in your reading/blogging life in 2017?

Read more!

6. A 2017 release you've already read & recommend to everyone:

None. I'm reading one right now, but I'm not totally loving it, so we shall see?

How was your year in books? Do you have any book resolutions for this year?

Audiobook Review: Tarkin

STAR WARS: Tarkin By James Luceno
Publisher: Random House Audio
Release Date: January 1st, 2014
Format: Audiobook narrated by Euan Morton
Summary Via GoodReads

My Rating: ★★

Goodreads ★ Amazon ★ B&N ★ TBD

He’s the scion of an honorable and revered family. A dedicated soldier and distinguished legislator. Loyal proponent of the Republic and trusted ally of the Jedi Order. Groomed by the ruthless politician and Sith Lord who would be Emperor, Governor Wilhuff Tarkin rises through the Imperial ranks, enforcing his authority ever more mercilessly . . . and zealously pursuing his destiny as the architect of absolute dominion.

Rule through the fear of force rather than force itself, he advises his Emperor. Under Tarkin’s guidance, an ultimate weapon of unparalleled destruction moves ever closer to becoming a terrifying reality. When the so-called Death Star is completed, Tarkin is confident that the galaxy’s lingering pockets of Separatist rebellion will be brought to heel—by intimidation or annihilation.

Until then, however, insurgency remains a genuine threat. Escalating guerrilla attacks by resistance forces and newfound evidence of a growing Separatist conspiracy are an immediate danger the Empire must meet with swift and brutal action. And to bring down a band of elusive freedom fighters, the Emperor turns to his most formidable agents: Darth Vader, the fearsome new Sith enforcer as remorseless as he is mysterious, and Tarkin—whose tactical cunning and cold-blooded efficiency will pave the way for the Empire’s supremacy . . . and its enemies’ extinction.
I was a little skeptical about if I would like a book about Grand Moff Tarkin. I mean the dude is an all around jerk, but this book kind of gets to the heart of why he was that way. It also really shows you why so many people were swayed to The Empire's thinking.

So Tarkin had a messed up childhood. He learned at an early age about class and to look down at the people that his parents had as servants. They are not supposed to be equals. If that is not enough, this family has a right of passage where they send kids to the middle of the jungle to survive. It's pretty messed up, but Tarkin far surpasses this trial that none of the Tarkins after him complete it. Dude is cold blooded, which is what makes him such a great military strategist.

If you ever wondered why Vader, the right hand of The Emperor, is basically treated like a lackey in A New Hope, this book explains the dynamic between Vader and Tarkin. What I also loved about this novel is that Tarkin figures it out immediately that Vader was Anakin Skywalker. The story of this novel is pretty much a power struggle between the two of them. They go on a mission and fight for control, with Tarkin coming out the victory and being named the first ever Grand Moff.

What I found super interesting was that it seems like The Emperor had a different agenda. He had something else up his sleeve and he wanted someone in high military command to essentially run his empire while him and Vader go off doing other things. This novel ends with Tarkin getting his post on the Death Star, and since we all know how that ends we never really figure out what the Emperor's ulterior motives are. To me this was the most intriguing thing about the novel, and I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't find out what The Emperor was planning.

This novel is mostly about military strategy, so if that is something that really interests you I would suggest trying this one. I listened to the audiobook, and I thought that the narrator had the perfect accent to be telling us the story of Wilhuff Tarkin.

Deanna Listens: Stuff You Missed in History Class

Deanna Listens is a monthly feature on the first Monday of every month (sometimes) I created to showcase some of my favorite podcasts. This month I'm talking about the podcast Stuff You Missed in History Class.

This was actually a little bit of a difficult podcast for me to get into at first. I think for one the podcasts I had listened to prior did all the ads in the intro, so having it in the middle of the podcast was a learning curve for me. Also, the two hosts have accents a little different than me that I found at times hard to deal with. At one point, I kind of gave up this podcast. So you must be wondering, why are you featuring this podcast, Deanna? Well...because I decided to give this podcast another chance and I think it's an interesting concept that people should know about.

Stuff You Missed In History Class is pretty easy concept to understand. It is two woman that talk about specific historical things that you might not have hard about. I found a lot of these to be super interesting, and there have been a lot of European history stuff that I just never learned about. Which is always the best thing about history, there is always more to learn!

The first episode I actually listened to was local to my area, because they talked about The Soap Lady. If you have been to the Mutter Musuem in Philadelphia or just know about The Soap Lady, I highly recommend listening to this episode. They also do some fun episodes around Halloween that I loved listening to this year.

Here are some great episodes to start out with:
They definitely have something for anyone interested in history. I also really like that the archive on their website has the podcasts organized by category. Which can consist of the year or topic (15th century or Halloween episodes). I definitely am going to start listening to this podcast more, but I would definitely recommend giving this one a try.

Got a great podcast you love? Give me a recommendation in the comments. No serious, please help, I'm running out of podcasts to listen to!
