First Thought when Finished: One Kick by Chelsea Cain was a fascinating look at a subject matter that isn’t broached much in fiction. I really enjoyed it! I would say the 2nd half of the story was stronger than the first half so stick with it. I hope there is more in the series and that we learn more about these characters.

DNF Report September 2014: It’s Me Not You (These are from May 2, 2014 to Sept 30, 2014)   Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld My rating: 1 of 5 stars Listened for Review (Simon & Schuster) Overall Rating: DNF Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating) Quick DNF Thoughts: Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld will work for others but I just couldn’t stay engaged. I found myself tuning out for parts and coming back to find I didn’t think I missed much. I gave it 40% (which for this book is about the time to listen to a whole other book) so I think I gave it enough to decide if it was for me. It had a little too much angst (in both stories) to appeal to me. Also, I hope YA authors don’t act like the authors in this book because if so I hope to never hang out with them. I am guessing though it was an exaggerated version of authors in NY. There are plenty of great reviews for this book please go read them. The things I did like: the pacing was fantastic and the writing was tight. I have never read Scott before but will try him in the future. Audio Thoughts: Narrated By Sheetal Sheth, Heather Lind / Length: 15 hrs and 13 mins I thought both narrators were outstanding. They had great pacing, emotion, and deliverance. They managed to keep me going with the audiobook long after I would have normally given up. I love when narrators can do that for me. So if you get a chance listen to this on audio! Remember Me Like This by Bret Anthony Johnston My rating: 1 of 5 stars Listened for Review (Random House Audio) Overall Rating: DNF Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating) It’s Not You, It’s Me DNF Review: I gave Remember Me Like This by Bret Anthony Johnston 2.5 hours and just could not get into the story. This is one of those thrillers that I think you have to care about the characters in order for it to work and they just did not click with me. I do think this story will work for other people. Audio Thoughts: Narrated By Mark Bramhall / Length: 12 hrs and 45 mins Mark Bramhall did an excellent job with the narration. His pacing was excellent and each of the characters had distinct personalities that his voice enhanced. I will give books narrated by him a try in the future. Notes about DNF Ratings: I am a moody reader. Sometimes books do not work for me simply because of the mood that I am. Plus, I think reading is so individual and what works for one reader, won’t work for all. I track all books that I read and that includes DNFs. Have to keep it real. I always suggest reading other reviews on all my DNF reviews. Wedding Cake and Big Mistakes by Nancy Naigle My rating: 1 of […]
