A Shade Of Blood by Bella Forrest Audiobook and Zachary Webber as a Narrator.

“Just because sandcastles are temporary, it never stopped me from making them as beautiful as possible.”

I posted my review of the Kindle edition of A Shade Of Blood in 2013 in this Blog but it wasn’t until years later that I bought the audiobook and it was this week when I finally started listening to it (using my Amazon Echo Dot while I was doing things around my apartment).

It was nice to go back to the story of Derek and Sofia and I’m planning on resume reading the A Shade of Vampire Series.

It was enjoyable listening to this Audiobook and I especially liked the chapters narrated by males, my favorites being the ones in Derek’s POV.

The choice in narrator for Derek Novak was spot on and it made me look for more books narrated by him (I truly loved his taking on the character and his voice, and I think he makes a perfect Derek). Searching in Audible I found out his name is Zachary Webber, and he’s also Christian Grey in the Audiobook version of Grey and Darker (Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian) and a narrator in Maybe Someday and November 9 by Colleen Hoover, among other books (I have these other four Audiobooks in my Audible library and I plan on listening to them this year).

If you like Fantasy, YA and Paranormal Romance books the A Shade of Vampire series is a good option for you to explore.

 

 

Audiobook Review.- Portlandia Travelogue: The Brussels to Antwerp Express

Portlandia Travelogue

 

Rating: 5 of 5.

One of my Favorite Quotes: “Two weeks, I answered in a vaguely seductive but official tone.”

Comments: Fred Armisen as Candace is one of my favorite characters from Portlandia and I was really excited to find this Audiobook.

I love how Candace describes everything in great detail (people, herself..) and how she keeps true to her demanding and kind of bossy attitude.

Would I recommend it?: Yes (specially if you are a Portlandia’s fan). I would definitely enjoy listening to more Audiobooks like this one.

 

Book Review: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

 

Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice kindle

Reading Challenge Category: A book at least 100 years older than you.

Book: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Format: Kindle and Audiobook

Rating: 5 of 5.

One of my Favorite Quotes: “How pleasant it is to spend an evening in this way! I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”

Comments:

This book is a Classic and a most read, I found the narration by Rosamund Pike very engaging and I especially enjoyed it in the parts of Mr. Collins, Mrs. Bennet and Jane Bennet.
While listening the Audiobook I couldn’t help compare the book with the 2005 Movie adaptation (the one starring Keira Knightley), and to be honest even when I think the character of Lizzy is really well written, she wasn’t my favorite. There are some things that I found myself questioning about Lizzy after finishing the book (particularly some of her attitudes towards people like Darcy and even sometimes her friend Charlotte).
Overall I enjoyed this book a lot, I love how Jane Austen portrayed the characters and I would recommend it (specially this Audiobook version).

Currently Reading (and listening): Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

I have a big collection of Kindle books and I’m always looking for good offers on the Audiobook version (so I can I switch between reading and listening to the book).

Yesterday I found in Audible a version of Pride and Prejudice narrated by Rosamund Pike, currently I’m on chapter 7 and loving it.

Originally, Pride and Prejudice wasn’t included on my Reading Challenge, but I decided to make it part of the Book List.

Here’s a video from Audible about this Audiobook:

Enjoy your saturday!
