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?

Title: Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World

Author: Adam Grant

Narrator: Fred Sanders

Rating: 4 Stars

Reviewer: Melinda
