The Audiobooks Tag

Hello lovelies! Today I’ll be doing the Audiobooks Tag.  It was created by Katie @ Books and Things. (Click the link to check out the original video!) I wasn’t tagged by anyone, I just watched it on YouTube and I thought this is a great tag to share my reading experience about audiobooks.

In addition, I’ll be getting few questions from Audiobooks Tag (2.0) which was created by Jen @ Jen Talks Audiobooks (click the link to check out the original video). I am subscribed to her channel for a while and I enjoyed listening to her audiobook reviews in different genres.

In the captivating start to a new, darkly lyrical fantasy series for readers of Leigh Bardugo and Sabaa Tahir, Tea can raise the dead, but resurrection comes at a price…

Let me be clear: I never intended to raise my brother from his grave, though he may claim otherwise. If there’s anything I’ve learned from him in the years since, it’s that the dead hide truths as well as the living.

When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother from the dead, she learns she is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy means that she’s a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and ostracized by her community. But Tea finds solace and guidance with an older, wiser bone witch, who takes Tea and her brother to another land for training.

In her new home, Tea puts all her energy into becoming an asha-one who can wield elemental magic. But dark forces are approaching quickly, and in the face of danger, Tea will have to overcome her obstacles…and make a powerful choice.

New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant rounds up the hottest cowboys in Texas in her latest novel of no-holds-barred passion.

Audrey Martinez is a veterinarian who has devoted her whole life to the care and protection of horses—even if doing so leaves her little time for meeting a man. Who would have thought that a strange case of criminal horseplay would lead her to falling deeply, wildly in love? If only the man who makes her heart race faster than a wild mustang would let his guard down, that is. . .

Caleb Harper is no ordinary cowboy. Sure, he wears his hat, boots, and jeans like a second skin, and displays an easygoing charm that comes from years of working on the ranch. But with his military background, and Army buddies at his side, he is tried-and-true Texas tough. Audrey knows she can trust a man like Caleb to help her save horses. But can Caleb trust himself to resist his attraction to Audrey—or will the sparks of their desire end up getting them burned?

“A fantastic, first-class Lone Star romance.”

Top 5 Wednesday: Nostalgic Ships

This weekly meme is created by Lainey of Ginger Reads Lainey and with its new host, Sam of Thoughts on Tomes . You can check out the weekly topics on the Top 5 Wednesday – Goodreads Page. For this list, I’d like to share to you my nostalgic ships. Here are the book couples I ship during my teenage years:

  • Adrian Ivashkov & Sydney Sage (Bloodlines by Richelle Mead) – I’m sorry Dmitri and Rose, I ship Sydrian more. I have heart eyes for Adrian Ivashkov and I’m glad he found the love of his life, Sydney.
  • Lola Nolan and Cricket Bell (Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins) – Most people I knew ship Anna and Etienne but I’m rooting for the underdog couple Lola and Cricket. They’re so cute together and both of them have great character developments.
  • Prince Maxon Schreave and America Singer (The Selection by Kiera Cass) – No matter how predictable this series is, the romance between them is lovely I swoon. I don’t mind rereading the first three books. (The 5th book is cancelled to me! haha)
  • Beatrice Prior and Four / Tobias Eaton (Divergent by Veronica Roth) – I love them until Allegiant happened. *cries in the corner*
  • Patch Cipriano and Nora Grey (Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick) – When paranormal romance is still popular, this series is one of my jams. The angsty romance between Nora and Patch. Oooh la la. So sexy. ❤

Those are my top nostalgic ships. Who are your favorite nostalgic ships? Feel free to share in the comments!
