Halfway to the Grave
Halfway to the Grave - Jeaniene Frost

I did not much care for this book the first time I read it. I have come to the conclusion that I may have been temporarily crazy at time of said reading, this time around I really liked it. Not a five star read, but a solid four. This time around I sdid the audio version. At times the way that Bones’s (the dude) were read I felt it was a bit off, kinda made me giggle at times. I admit though that I prefer when an audiobook has a gal reading the gal parts and a guy reading the guy ones. I love when there is a full cast the best, but can’t seem to remember what book I listened to that had that going on. Book two will be read.

Audio Book Review: One Grave At A Time (Night Huntress #6) By Jeaniene Frost
One Grave at a Time - Jeaniene Frost

 

I adore this series! I love how this book stood the test of time. This is the second time I read it and I love it just as much now as I did when it was first published. For some reason, I find this series very relaxing to listen to when I want to wind down for the night so I've technically been reading this book in small increments for 4+ months.

 

Cat was kick*ss as ever! She's progressed so much throughout this series and her adventures get even more fascinating as time passes. I like the partnership and mutual respect she has going on with Bones.

 

Bones is a classic book boyfriend and I love him. He's just as protective as he is respectful. Cat and Bones have learned that communication works wonders when either one is in danger. That just makes everything that much more exhilarating when everything hits the metaphorical fan.

 

The ending was very satisfying! The evil ghost was getting on my nerves and I was glad to finally put him and this adventure to bed. Considering how much I enjoy this series I'll probably listen to the last book in the months to come.

 

The Audio Book:

 

The narration was great! Though I don't like Bones' voice throughout the series it has grown on me to a degree. It's not my favorite, but I can listen to the audio book without cringing every time he says something. Other than that, every time else was fine.

Fry up for my reading slump
Halfway to the Grave - Jeaniene Frost

Well, that ended on an unexpected note. Despite how HARD I rolled my eyes through many points (i.e. the sexy segments, and the blurt out our past and wounds, and the hit you love you) for sheer teen-angst intensity, I'm somewhat interested in what follows. I mean, we are past the AWESOME FIRST ORGASM, and the first blushes of ONE (FIRST) TRUE LOVE! (what? I can totally use caps, they are serious business here). I imagine I'd be setting myself for a lot of I CAN'T BE WITH MY BELOVED angst for volume two, though, so not sure yet. Might be that volume three is worth it? So little time, so many books. Maybe if I want another fry in my next slump.

Audio Book Review: This Side Of The Grave (Night Huntress #5) By Jeaniene Frost
This Side of the Grave - Jeaniene Frost

 

My Rating: 3 and a half stars

 

I love this series, but I took too long to listen to this book in tiny increments and it ruined the experience somewhat. For starters, the beginning wasn't memorable. This is the second time I'm reading this novel and yet I don't even have a vague idea of what happened.

 

Kat and Bones were a kick*ss duo that I love coming back to read about. Their dynamic is very interesting. I loved how they were always there for each other and would accomplish the impossible to help one another.

 

The Voodoo Queen was an amazing character that I love and hate. She's all-powerful and the such, but deep down she has a moral code that no one will dare ignore because of future possible consequences. She's also very calculating and I loved every minute of her theatrics with Cat.

 

The ending was bittersweet when the subject is Dawn. He's such a big part of Cat's story, even though it didn't take me by surprise, it was still sad. I like the part he continues to play in Cat's future adventures though.

 

The Audio Book:

 

The narration was great, but I'm finding myself sometimes bothered by Bone's voice and other times not. I can't explain why that's happening.

Audio Book Review: Destined for an Early Grave (Night Huntress #4) By Jeaniene Frost
Destined for an Early Grave - Jeaniene Frost

 

If I had to rank this particular story within this series, it'd probably be in the top 2. This is one of the more intense plotlines to this series. Even though this was a reread I was still on the edge of my seat throughout the book. 

 

I like Cat a little more as this series progresses. I adore how feisty and sarcastic she can be. She also doesn't take anyone's crap, but she does know when to take no for an answer. She understands that she may not win every battle, but she will, eventually, win the war.

 

Bones almost became an a**hole in this book. I was ready to cut ties if everything proved to be true. I'm glad it didn't (considering that I didn't remember much of what would happen). Though he can be overprotective and domineering, I can understand where he's coming from.

 

The ending had my heart beating faster than usual and my blood pressure rising. It was a very good conclusion to an amazing story. 

 

The Audio Book:

 

The narration was great with an exception that shouldn't come as a surprise to you (if you've read my other reviews of this series): Bones' voice. Just because I got used to it doesn't mean I like it.
