My Ramblings: GraphicAudio Books Just Don't Compare

GraphicAudio Books Just Don't Compare

GraphicAudio Books made it so I'll never look at a regular audiobook the same way again! It's what I always wanted audible to do, but so much better. I would have been happy with a male and female narrator reading simultaneously and some weather sound effects. What I got with GraphicAudio blew everything out of the water!

The only downside is the price. Though I can see how they got to that price. It can't be inexpensive to hire various narrators, create sound effects, editing and hours upon hours of everything else that has to get reviewed throughout the process. If the story they adapt is good then it's worth it to me.

I hope they continue to expand their library of adaptations. Hopefully, in the future, they begin to venture into other genres like paranormal and contemporary romance. Most of the stories they have now aren't my cup of tea. Even Dante Valentine proved to be a challenge in the second novel of the series. 

Have you listened to a GraphicAudio Book?
Are you a fangirl of theirs?
Let's discuss in the comments below!

The Power Of Book Covers: Wild Card By Rachel Vincent

They say don't judge a book by its movie...err...COVER. 
BUT they never said we couldn't PRAISE them.

This week's cover:

Wild Card
By Rachel Vincent

Kaci Dillon is a man-eater.

She’s grown up on the fringes of shifter society, hearing the whispers. One desperate act as a starving, terrified child has made her the first tabby in history with no romantic prospects. But whatever. Eighteen is too young to get married anyway. Still, when she stumbles upon an opportunity to get away for a few days, who could blame her for seizing it?

Justus Alexander is screwed.

Confined to the South-Central territory, awaiting trial for crimes he committed as a traumatized, newly infected stray, Justus has discovered that the tribunal already intends to vote for the death penalty. He has no choice but to run. Too young to touch the trust fund that could finance his escape, he’s betting on a big win at the poker tables—until Kaci, his secret crush, catches him sneaking out and demands that he take her with him to Las Vegas

After a wild night she can’t remember, Kaci wakes up with a ring on her finger, next to a young billionaire who can’t access his fortune until he turns twenty-five—or ties the knot. If she can keep her hands off her hot, charismatic new groom, she can have their unconsummated marriage annulled. But can she really abandon Justus to his death sentence, just to undo her own mistake?

Audio Book Review: Winter Moon By Dannika Dark

Winter Moon
(Seven #7.5)
By Dannika Dark

Narrator: Nicole Poole
Length: 3 hours and 34 minutes

The Weston pack waited until the last minute to prepare for Christmas. Spirits are low, and now they're in a scramble when a freak snowstorm knocks out the power. Despite bickering among packmates and the threat of rogues, the family is determined to make this a memorable Christmas.

But when an important family member goes missing, the pack is galvanized into action. Time is running out, and the temperature is dropping fast.

Winter Moon is a bonus novella that takes place after the final book in the series, One Second.

My Review:

It looks like I missed a few important events by not finishing 'One Second', but that isn't going to make me go back and try to push through it for the third time. I adored the small tidbits this novella provided in past stories and the beginnings of one or two.

I loved getting insight into Trevor and William. In the series, they were always in the background. This novella was great because it "checked up" on so many people. It wasn't anything set in stone, but it was something I had been waiting for for the past few books and it finally happened.

This novella also got me interested in a possible Lakota spin-off series. He seems sweet and capable. Though I'm not sure I'm a big fan of Melody, considering her brilliant idea of going to look for a cat in a snowstorm close to nightfall.

The one thing I wish I did know the details of was the Ben situation. After what happened in Wheeler's story (Book #5 in this series) I thought that was the last I'd ever see of him. I don't think he deserves a happy ending and I'm not quite sure how to deal with him and the situation.

In conclusion, I liked this not quite "ending" to this series. It was sweet and almost every character seems to have a purpose or a possible story to tell in the future if the author so chooses. This was a great series and I can't wait to continue reading novels by this author!

The Audio Book:

The narration was great! Though the men seemed to have very similar voices but considering they're brothers it's something I expected. I've listened to a few of their individual stories and they do sound similar all around. It just makes it tricky in this novella because, for the most part, there are usually 2 or 3 brothers together at all times in most scenes.

Top Ten Tuesday: Eight Books That Surprised Me

Hiya My Little Predators!!

This Week's Topic:
Eight Books That Surprised Me

In A Bad Way:

1. Night School By C. J. Daugherty
I was under the impression that book would include some sort of paranormal creature and I was sorely disappointed. It ended up being a group of sketchy humans and nothing more. It wasn't necessarily a bad book, but I was expecting something else.

2. Twist (Mageri #2) By Dannika Dark

I liked the first book in this series enough to want to continue the journey. Spoiler Ahead: I wasn't expecting for the main character and the kidnapper to fall in love with each other. That plot point ruined the rest of the series for me.

3. Bound To Me By Jeannette Medina

I like bodyguard type stories and dragons. I thought I was getting into a good book. When the "guard" simply materializes out of the heroine's magical dragon back tattoo I knew what I was in for and I hated every moment of it.

4. Perfect Opposite By Tessi Zoya

I read a few reviews of this book and most people were saying it was a "different take on the classic heiress and bodyguard story". Boy was I in for a rude awakening. This novel just wasn't for me.

In A Good Way:

1. The Fault In Our Stars By John Green

I was expecting to have my heart ripped out and stomped on, but I didn't expect to connect to the characters as much as I did. This was one of the toughest books to get through and I was only listening to the audio book. This was an amazing book, just ended up being more than I was expecting.

2. Chameleon By Kelly Oram

I wasn't expecting to love this as much as I did. The story was fasinating, abit a little cliché. The writing is was did me in.

3. Branded By Abi Ketner & Missy 

I won an this as an ebook on a blog giveaway and decided to give it a shot. It turned out to be an incredible book with unique twists for the dystopian genre.

4. Rules Of Survival By Jus Accardo

I don't usually go looking for serial killer and kidnapping books, but this was an exception because I adore almost everything this author writes. I took a gamble on this book and it paid off! It was an awesome ride!
