The Books that I read or finished reading this week….

Crazy Rich Asians (Crazy Rich Asians 1/3) by Kevin Kwan [Narrator: Lynn Chen                                                                                                                                  Reading Period: 4/12/17 [/3/18] – 1/4/18                                                                      Book Information Pos                                                                                                  I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish although I did find the first 4 chapters a little slow going this was helped when I swapped to the audiobook as the Narrator was brilliant so I was able to follow the story a lot easier. As I was reading the book it was easy to see that the author was writing from experience as well as research that he’d done which made the book’s plot and characters all the more well written and developed. As soon as I finished reading this book I knew I wanted to read the next one as soon as possible so I immediately downloaded the audible Narration for my kindle book as I knew I wanted to read and listen as I did with the first in the series.

A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird series 1/4) by Claudia Grey          Reading Period: 12/1/16 [15/3/18] – 3/4/18                                                                 Star Rating:4/5 Stars                                                                                                       Book Information Post                                                                                                 Although it took me a while to read this book I did enjoy it and my enjoyment of it was helped along the way thanks to the skill of the Narrator of the audio book because they portrayed the characters feelings and personalities so well in the way she voiced them. I can not wait to read the next book in the series to see what happens in the story and how the characters grow. It is my intention to read the next book via audio book as it is being Narrated by the same Narrator and I also intend to look for other books narrated by this Narrator.

Deadly Night (Flynn Brothers Trilogy 1/3) by Heather Graham                       Reading Period: 15/3 [3/4] – 4/4/18                                                                                Star Rating:4/5 Stars                                                                                                      Book Information Post                                                                                                Although this book started relatively slowly it needed to, to really introduce the reader into the background of the story and I was helped over the drag of the slow beginning by listening to the audiobook version for several chapters. The way the narrator voiced the characters in the chapters really immersed me in the story so it made me want to carry on reading the book in e-book format. The characters in the book were developed as much as they needed to be for a first book in a series (trilogy) and plot was thoroughly developed which meant that as the reader I was transported to another place. I was so keen to see what happened next to the characters from this book and see what new characters were going to be brought into the series I immediately started reading the next book in the series.

Ghost Night (The Bone Island Trilogy 2/3) by Heather Graham                      Reading Period: Read from 17/3 to 6/4 2018                                                            Goodreads Average Star Rating:                                                                                    for more book information click here                                                                         This is the second book in the Bone Island Trilogy and I started reading it as soon as I had finished reading the first book in the trilogy because I’d enjoyed it so much. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end it was great being back in New Orleans and with the characters from the previous book while meeting the new characters. The book was as well written and the plot well-developed as the previous book.

Endurance: A Year in Space. A Lifetime of Discoveries by Scott Kelly (Narrator: Scott Kelly                                                                                                   Reading Period: Read from 30/3 to 7/4 2018                                                                Book Information             Book Review                                                                    This is a non-fiction book about life as an astronaut so it is highly science based. I heard about this book from Jen on Jen talks Audiobooks on you(book)tube who recommend it highly on her channel. When I read it via audio book which was narrated by the author which was great in its self and it was as good as Jen said it was.                                                                                  The book was really well written and it was clear that Scotts knowledge of the subject matter. It was also incredibly interesting because the chapters combined his life as an astronaut with his family life as well as his life growing up.
