5 STARS | GRADE A+ The sound effects on the narration is phenomenal, I loved it...and Saskia Maarleveld was pretty freaking fantastic...even when she did Han's POV. I think you'll like this if you're a regular reader of YA space-themed stories. I think Rae Carson did a more than adequate job with the many nuances that make Han Solo the charismatic character that he is. He was just so Han...and he will forever be my favorite character in Star Wars.

Rolling in the Deep | Mira Grant

Killer mermaids for the win. I listened to this after already having listened to Into the Drowning Deep...so I knew the deal with the mermaids but it was still ultimately a diabolical foray into the deep waters of the Mariana Trench. The characters are rather unlikeable, so I wasn't sad to see them come to their dastardly end (not really a spoiler).

With a high number of three-ish star ratings for this book...I was expecting to like this more than everyone else...and I actually liked it less than...just goes to show you never can tell how you feel about a book based off reviews alone. When it comes to mysteries, it all comes down to what your mind lets you believe.

A timely read that could be all too real...the most interesting aspect of this book is being able to see through the eyes of each girl and knowing their thoughts throughout. Having each character written by a different author made the differences in the characters even more tangible. This is available at most Overdrive Libraries as part of the Big Library Read, but only through the 18th of November.

A thought-provoking short story about the what if's...the possibilities and whats going to happen if the world keeps thinking and doing what they are...I wanted more, though because overall, with how short it is, it only confused me.

An interesting premise of the end of the world, unfortunately, the story focused entirely on flowers and horticulture and I personally found it boring, even for a short story. There was so much that could have been explored with this scenario. Also, the ending was rather abrupt.

I was leaning towards two stars for most of the way through this, right up until the end...and well, you can see I upped it to four. This one has an actual ending to it, even though it was left hanging in a way it still totally worked. If you listened to it, you'll get what I mean.

This could have been better. The quantum physics & entanglements stuff went right over my head. The ending was sort of interesting. Honestly, most of these stars are for the excellent narration.

I was really looking forward to this one because Hopper from Stranger Things narrates it...sadly, I don't think he was very good. Storywise, I really wasn't feeling this one...it kind of felt like it was all over the place. And that ending, it completely lost me.

bookandbedandtea I would have liked this one to be much longer. I think it hints at so much that it doesn't have time in this format to develop. 1w
leahsbookishobsession I just felt like it was out in left field. The whole ending, once he was at the bar confused me. Maybe, if it had been longer I could've made sense of it. 1w

The best of the entire collection, by far. The longest story and the one with the most character development and plotline. This makes you wonder what kind of AI they are creating and nurturing at this very moment, like in real-world possibilities. Didn't we learn anything from Terminator?

bookandbedandtea This one freaked me out! I was concerned but enjoying it then the ending! 🙀 1w

The series as a whole is Dark Romantic Suspense that only has a smattering of romance and is heavy on the suspense and the darkness. 3w

The first book introduced a very disturbing story...that quite literally blew my mind with its sheer craziness. Unfortunately, the second book felt a little like he didn't really know where he wanted to go with the story...almost as if he was never really planning on continuing the story at all. Like an idea that never fully formed.
