Bright Young Things #1 Description ⎮Reviewed Nov. 2015 Narrator: Emily Bauer Length: 9h 58m Publisher: Harper Collins⎮2010 3.5 ★ Audiobook⎮My opinion of this dramatically increased during the last two chapters. If the entire book had been as action-packed as those chapters, this easily could have been a four-star book. However, Godbersen devotes …

Throne of Glass #4 Description⎮Reviewed Oct. 2015 Narrator: Elizabeth Evans Length: 20h 18m Publisher: Audible Inc.⎮2015 4 ★ Audiobook⎮Queen of Shadows is huge and I enjoyed every single second of it.
