Audiobook Review: Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell with Patrick Robinson

Title: Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10

Authors: Marcus Luttrell, Patrick Robinson (Contributor)

Narrator: Kevin T. Collins

Rating: 4 Stars

Reviewer: Jennifer

Books like Lone Survivor are not a go to for me because I prefer fiction to non-fiction. I typically only read non-fiction if it comes HIGHLY recommended by a friend. Enter said friend. On a recommendation I decided to give the audiobook a try. Lone Survivor was not what I expected … in a good way.

Audiobook Review: Unraveled by Jen Frederick

Title: Unraveled

Author: Jen Frederick

Narrators: Stella Bloom, Andrew Eiden

Rating: 4 Stars

Reviewer: Melinda

So this is just a Jen Frederick happy week! I know I just reviewed Paper Princess yesterday but coincidentally I also finished Unraveled on audio around the same time and wanted to get my review up for it sooner rather than later, so let’s just consider this Jen Frederick week okay? I’ve read Unraveled when it first came out back in January 2014 and loved it so when I found out the whole Woodlands series were being released on audio I was ridiculously excited. If you like audiobooks you should be excited too! Continue reading “Audiobook Review: Unraveled by Jen Frederick”

Rating: 5 Stars

Reviewer: Melinda

This book…this freaking book!!

Book Review: Glory Over Everything by Kathleen Grissom

Title: Glory Over Everything

Author: Kathleen Grissom

Rating: 4 stars

Reviewers: Dottie & Jennifer

A novel of family and long-buried secrets along the treacherous Underground Railroad.

Glory Over Everything is considered a stand-alone but is the follow up to Grissom’s The Kitchen House. You can certainly read this book without reading The Kitchen House first but it will add something to your reading of this story to hear how Jamie’s story begun. This novel is the gripping continuation of Jamie’s story. Continue reading “Book Review: Glory Over Everything by Kathleen Grissom”
