  1. Thank you so much for including me. As a new blogger, it is always a thrill.

    1. I'm glad I found your post! There's not many audiobook reviews of mg sci fi/fantasy, so I'm especially happy to include them.

  2. My plan is to try to do 1 or 2 per month, on Saturdays.

  3. Have you read Some Kind of Happiness yet? I'm wondering because I would classify it as being straight up realistic fiction. Curious because this could be quite the discussion come Cybils time. :)

  4. Lots of reviews to check out! Thanks for sharing all these links. :)
