Into the Black – Audio Book Review

Odyssey One #1 by Evan Currie
Published on: March 27, 2012
Narrated by: David de Vries

Space Opera/Military Science Fiction: I love both of these sci fi subgenres, but I actually discovered this series by accident. Somehow I found the follow-on series first, fell in love with it and decided to start from the beginning – the Odyssey One series. Plus, Kindle Unlimited offers both the book and audio book, which made it even better for me since I love listening to audio books.

Archangel One – Audio Book Review

By Evan Currie
Narrated by Stephen Dexter
Published on: September 1, 2019

Sometimes you find a book when you just need it most. I tend to really enjoy military science fiction stories, but oddly enough I don’t read them very often. Not sure why that is. I happened to run across this one when randomly searching on my Kindle for something new to read within science fiction. Kindle Unlimited offered this one in both written and audio format. I chose the audio version and it was a blast!

Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow – Audio Book Review

Nevermoor #2 by Jessica Townsend
Audio Book Narrator: Gemma Whelan
Published on: October 28, 2018

No amount of words can describe how much I love this series, especially the audio books. It’s one of the few that I have listened to more than once and I greatly suspect there will be another listen one day.

Nightbooks – Audio Book Review

By J.A. White
Audio Book Narrated by Kirby Heyborne
Published on: July 24, 2018

Spooky middle grade stories are one of my favorite genres to read. They have a creep factor, but not too much. Plus, they typically have a happy ending. I say ‘typically’ because I’ve run across a Goosebumps story or two that didn’t. Nightbooks has won or been short-listed for several awards and honors, but what excites me most at this moment is that this particular book is also being adapted for Netflix. Woot!

Doll Bones – Audio Book Review

By Holly Black
Published on: April 14, 2015

This is a 2014 Newberry Honor winner. For whatever reason Newberry selections aren’t typically books I enjoy, but I didn’t know that it was a Newberry Honor story when I selected the audio book from the library. I was just looking for another potentially spooky book since this is October and Halloween is around the corner and a doll with actual bones definitely sounds like it falls within the creepy category.

Camp Red Moon – Audio Book Review

Audible Original By: R.L. Stine
Published: October 3, 2019
Length: 4 hrs. 32 min

This full-ensemble audio book has some seriously creepy moments in it. Some of it is fun-creepy and then other times it is just creepy-creepy. But overall, I have one major question – what kind of non-real parents are sending their kids to Camp Red Moon? Out of all the youth camps in the world they are choosing to send their precious babies to a camp where robots take over and tragic deaths occur – not to mention werewolves, ghosts, and other monsters.
