Stacking The Shelves #148 & Sunday Post #112



I am combining two great blog hops:  Stacking The Shelves (a Saturday feature by Team Tynga's Reviews), and Sunday Post (a Sunday feature by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer).  Both of these features give people a chance to post about what books they received and also an opportunity to catch a glimpse of what others are excited about.  I really enjoy seeing everyone's version of these features!   All book covers are linked to Goodreads, if you want to check them out.  If you enjoy my blog, please consider following me via Bloglovin, Networked Blogs, GFC, or by email subscription.  If you leave a comment and tell me you are a new follower, I will follow you back!



On The Blog:
This week, I did a mini review of the audiobook version of Aurora Rising!  I has a full cast and was simply wonderful!  I also posted a review for another audiobook called Field Notes On Love.  This was a sweet YA RomCom.  click on the book covers to see my reviews:

In Real Life:
It's been another busy week as we prepare for the end of the school year. My two sons in college are having finals next week.  And my daughter is gearing up for Senior activities in the last few weeks of school.  Most of her actual school work is complete, so now it's time for fun:  Field Trips, Senior Ball, an awards ceremony, and so much more.  

School is winding down for me as well, as our class gets ready for 3rd grade!  I think we are all in need of some time off.  If only the weather would cooperate!

Audio ARC Review: Field Notes on Love by Jennifer E. Smith

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/43601774-field-notes-on-love?ac=1&from_search=true
Please Note:  I received an advance audio copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  This did not influence the opinions of my review in any way.

Synopsis (From Goodreads):
Having just been dumped by his girlfriend, British-born Hugo is still determined to take his last-hurrah-before-college train trip across the United States. One snag: the companion ticket is already booked under the name of his ex, Margaret Campbell. Nontransferable, no exceptions.

Enter the new Margaret C. (Mae for short), an aspiring filmmaker with big dreams. After finding Hugo's spare ticket offer online, she's convinced it's the perfect opportunity to expand her horizons.

When the two meet, the attraction is undeniable, and both find more than they bargained for. As Mae pushes Hugo to explore his dreams for his future, he'll encourage her to channel a new, vulnerable side of her art. But when life off the train threatens the bubble they've created for themselves, will they manage to keep their love on track?


Review:
YA books often have rather contrived premises, and Field Notes On Love, by Jennifer E. Smith has a doozy!  A boy from England is going on a cross-country trip of America but all his reservations are in the name of his ex-girlfriend.  What can he do?  He must find a person with the exact same name willing to take the trip with him.  Silly premise aside, I found this book to be very sweet and romantic.  I loved the characters, and their families, and the many ruminations on Love.  This was a fun book.

What I Liked:
Setting:
I love books about long trips, as travel can bring out the best, and worst, in people.  A cross-country train trip was a perfect way for the characters to get to know each other, and interact with many different people and places.

Narrators:
Anthony Mark Barrow & Karissa Vacker do a wonderful job inhabiting all the characters.  I enjoyed the cute British accent that the male narrator brought to the mix, as well as his American accent.  It was done well enough that I couldn't tell if Anthony Mark Barrow was actually British or American.  Karissa Vacker also does a good job of portraying May.  This character could easily come off as annoying, but May seems like a very smart, but lonely, kid. 

Characters:
I enjoyed Hugo and his five siblings.  He is one in a group of sextuplets, and is finding it hard to be his own person.  This is especially hard when everyone around them wants to use them for advertising.  He even has a scholarship to go to college, but only if all his siblings go to the same school.

I liked that while he wanted some space from his sibs, he also had great affection for them.  The group chats in the book were a smart way to show the back and forth that goes on between teens.  It's also smart because group chats are THE WAY teens talk with each other.

Hugo, himself, was very sweet and romantic.   I liked that he didn't want to jeopardize his siblings scholarship.  In that, he was a very selfless character.  He also was very cute with May.  I could totally understand why she would fall for him.

May also is a fun character.  She is devastated not to get into the college program of her dreams and can't understand why.  As the parent of a Senior in high school, I get how difficult rejections from colleges can be.  Often, there is no rhyme or reason to it.  But I like that May tries to improve her film-making skills, rather than blame the admissions committee.

Ending:
I liked that there was not a tidy ending to this book.  As silly as the premise was, the author kept the ending pretty realistic.  It also didn't provide all the answers (could there be a book two in the works?).  I think the transition between high school and college is an unpredictable moment in a teen's life.  It's a moment when our dreams meet real life.  Some of our dreams do come true, but parts of it may look different from what we imagined.  This is what I liked about the ending, and message, of this book.


What I Was Mixed About:
Premise:
This premise, that Hugo must find a girl with the same name as his ex in order to take this trip, is ridiculous.  I also found some of the plot twists about his college scholarship to be contrived.  Every teen wants a different college experience.  Why would all of his siblings be okay with having to attend the same college, even if it was free?  What if the school didn't offer the programs that they wanted?  Why would his parents agree to this?

Audio ARC Mini Review: Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30075662-aurora-rising?ac=1&from_search=true
Please Note:  I received an advance audio version of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  This did not influence the opinions of my review in any way.

Synopsis (From Goodreads):
The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the Academy would touch…

A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm
A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates
A smart-ass techwiz with the galaxy’s biggest chip on his shoulder
An alien warrior with anger management issues
A tomboy pilot who’s totally not into him, in case you were wondering

And Ty’s squad isn’t even his biggest problem—that’d be Aurora Jie-Lin O’Malley, the girl he’s just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler’s squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.

They're not the heroes we deserve. They're just the ones we could find. Nobody panic.


Review:
I have been a lucky blogger of late.  First, I was able to get a hold of the publicist for Jay Kristoff and was granted an E-book ARC of Aurora Rising.  Then, just before publication, I was able to get an audio ARC for the same book From Random House!  There was simply no way I could listen to the book quick enough to review it by publication day, so I posted my review for the printed book.  Here is a link:


Spoiler Alert:  I loved it! 

So this mini review is only my thoughts on the audio book production.

What I Liked:
Full Cast Production:
As with all of their books, the audio book of Aurora Rising had a full cast.  I loved that each point of view chapter was portrayed by different voice actors.  And there were plenty of sound effects to create the experience of listening to an old radio show.

Varying Accents:
Cat has the most amazing Australian accent in this book!  Given that the authors are Australian, this was awesome.  It was also fun to hear each of the different voice actors attempt Cat's sound (with varying degrees of success).  As always, Steve West's lovely British accent was swoony!

In Real Life: 
The time seems to be flying by as we prepare for my daughter's graduation.  SHE is doing great, with her two AP classes essentially finished.  I am starting to realize I have so much to do!  But I am really happy for her.  She and her friends have worked so hard.

On The Blog:
I was really fortunate to have received an e-book ARC, and an audio ARC of Aurora Rising, by the dynamic duo of Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.  As expected, I loved it!    I also reviewed a historical fiction called Blackberry and Wild Rose by Sonia Velton.  So good.  Click on the covers to see my reviews:

New Books:
I actually bought some books this week!  I have found Book Outlet to have really great pricing, and the quality of the books (overstocks and returns from stores) to be fine.  Here's what I got (spending about $40!):

As usual, all these wonderful books came in all at once!  Now I'm scrambling to read as fast as possible.  But what a dilemma!  So many wonderful books.

For all the Moms out there, have a great Mother's Day (hopefully relaxing with a book!).

ARC Review: Blackberry and Wild Rose by Sonia Velton

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/36222190-blackberry-and-wild-rose
Please Note:  I received an advance copy of this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.  This did not influence the opinions of my review in any way.

Synopsis (From Goodreads):
When Esther Thorel, the wife of a Huguenot silk-weaver, rescues Sara Kemp from a brothel she thinks she is doing God’s will. Sara is not convinced being a maid is better than being a whore, but the chance to escape her grasping ‘madam’ is too good to refuse.

Inside the Thorels’ tall house in Spitalfields, where the strange cadence of the looms fills the attic, the two women forge an uneasy relationship. The physical intimacies of washing and dressing belie the reality: Sara despises her mistress’s blindness to the hypocrisy of her household, while Esther is too wrapped up in her own secrets to see Sara as anything more than another charitable cause.

It is silk that has Esther so distracted. For years she has painted her own designs, dreaming that one day her husband will weave them into reality. When he laughs at her ambition, she strikes up a relationship with one of the journeyman weavers in her attic who teaches her to weave and unwittingly sets in motion events that will change the fate of the whole Thorel household.


Review:
Historical fiction is one of my favorite book genres because I love reading about a time and place I will never get to actually experience.  Filled with lots of wonderful details of the lives of several classes of people in 18th century England, this book is full of domestic drama as well.  I loved it.

What I Liked:
Setting:
England in the 18th century was a time of great unrest.  Just as people were rebelling in America, so too were laborers starting to question the status quo in London.  I like that every person in this story has legitimate concerns.  The master silk weavers are feeling the pressure of lower prices from cotton cloth.  The journeymen laborers are then paid less by the masters to the point where they can't feed their families.  The book did a very good job of explaining these dynamics to the reader.

Historical details:
Oh my, the details of this book are just stunning.  From the descriptions of life in a brothel, to the realities of being a house servant, this book gives a very accurate taste of how life was like for several different types of people.  But, just as one can imagine how grim life was for the lower classes, things weren't always so good for women (and men) who were well-to-do.  

I also love all the descriptions of the whole silk weaving process.  I had no idea how a design is translated from a drawing to being worked on a loom.  But this book leads us to appreciate how intricate a process this is.

Characters:
Each character is well drawn by the author.  And with the exception of Bisby, they are all equally oblivious as to how their actions will effect others.  I liked nearly every character because they each were complex and not entirely good, or evil.  Even someone like Esther's husband, who is infuriating, is merely acting like most men of his time.  The author also made sure to show the stresses he was under to show that even the most privileged person was not secure.

Story:
This is one of those stories that could have had the tag line, "No good deed goes unpunished".  Several characters go out of their way to assist someone in need, and get bitten for their troubles.  Esther, the wealthy housewife, hires Sara as a maid in order to get her away from a life as a prostitute.  But Sara is far from grateful.  She seems determined to cause trouble wherever she goes.  Bisby, the journeyman weaver working on his master tapestry, agrees to help Esther weave her own design.  This delays his own work, and risks the wrath of his master, Esther's husband.  The main point of the story is that every action has the potential for unintended outcomes.

There certainly was a lot of tension as secrets are revealed and betrayals are exposed.  I stayed up way past my bedtime reading!

ARC Review: Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30075662-aurora-rising?ac=1&from_search=true
Please Note:  I received an advance copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  This did not influence the opinions of my review in any way.

They're not the heroes we deserve. They're just the ones we could find. Nobody panic.


Review:
Because I buy a lot of books each year, I need to carefully consider each purchase (sadly, I'm not independently wealthy).  But when a new novel by authors Amie Kaufman and Kay Kristoff comes out, I will automatically buy it.  I really like their humor, and storytelling.  Aurora Rising, their newest book, is full of suspense, fun characters, and an intergalactic space heist.  I loved it!


What I Liked:
Characters:
This is definitely an ensemble cast with seven characters onboard the spaceship.  I love that we get to find out the backstory of each character, which really makes us care about them.

But the main story is about Aurora, a girl woken up from a cryogenic sleep 250 years later than she planned.  Aurora is the eyes of the reader as she must navigate this new reality full of various species of life-forms, spaceships, and planets.  She also seems to have superpowers!

I liked how purposeful and kind Aurora was.  Even though she must be freaking out a bit at all the changes, she is never mean.  She also doesn't curse ("Son of a biscuit-eater!").  I liked showing that not everyone drops F-bombs in novels.

Tyler was also a great character.  At the top of his graduating class, this cadet was looking forward to a choice first assignment with a crew of his own choosing.  Instead, he gets all the cadets no one wants, and a mission he can't understand.  I liked that even though he faced adversity, Tyler took on the challenge, and remained in control.

Each member of the spaceship's crew has a specific role.  Kal, the warrior, is a fascinating character.  He reminded me of Spock on Star Trek, a person fighting to tame his violent nature.  He is instantly attracted to Aurora (his society calls it "The Pull"), but is slightly horrified he has feelings at all for a human.

Storytelling:
The authors keep the storytelling interesting by changing the point of view in each chapter.  Each chapter starts with a "file" on a different job on the crew, or a different species of person (sort of reminding me of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy).  Then the chapter begins with the character that fits that file.  Eventually, we get to hear from each character.  This was really fun, and made it easy distinguish between personalities.

Suspense:
There's nothing like a book where all the characters have a bounty on their heads!  It seems like they get out of one mess only to jump into another. This kept the book at a fast pace.  I didn't notice the book was almost 500 pages!  I could not put it down.

Representation:
There is such a variety of people in sexuality, skin colors, temperaments, and physical abilities, that it gladdened by heart.  I especially liked the portrayals of Fin and Zila.  Fin needs an exoskeleton in order to move.  But that doesn't stop him from being a smart-ass.  I really like his inner dialogue showing how angry he was at his family for sending him away.  Plus he is makes hilarious sexual innuendoes about everyone in the book.  

Zila appears to have zero social skills, but the crew really values her input.  She is almost always correct when she offers a solution on what to do.  She is also a character with black skin and kinky hair, something that science-fiction books rarely include.  

Romance:
The relationship between Kal and Aurora is complicated.  Kal feels "The Pull" towards Aurora.  But there is more than attraction at work here.  They actually have a lot in common.  Both have lost their families and have power they cannot fully understand.  I like how Kal tries so hard not to show his true feelings for Aurora, (because he doesn't want her to feel any obligation to return his affections) and Aurora's compassion for Kal.  They would make a great couple.  But will Kal risk rejection and make his feelings known?

Story:
This is essentially a heist story, as we learn an ancient artifact is the key to
Aurora's mystery.  The only problem:  The artifact is in the private collection of the galaxy's most notorious gangster.  Add that shady galactic government agents are after Aurora and the chase is on!

Each situation seems to provide a reason for one of the characters to showcase their talents.  With every ship chasing them, Cat performs feats of piloting that are thrilling to read.  Scarlett (the diplomat) can talk her way out of most situations.  When that doesn't work, Kal (the warrior) will fight them out.  Fin shows off his MacGyver skills as he creates tech on the fly.  Zila (the scientist) provides knowledge when it is needed most.  Tyler is a natural leader that his team wants to follow, even when it makes them outlaws.  And Aurora...  You have to read the book to find out what she can do!

Stacking The Shelves #146 & Sunday Post #110


I am combining two great blog hops:  Stacking The Shelves (a Saturday feature by Team Tynga's Reviews), and Sunday Post (a Sunday feature by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer).  Both of these features give people a chance to post about what books they received and also an opportunity to catch a glimpse of what others are excited about.  I really enjoy seeing everyone's version of these features!   All book covers are linked to Goodreads, if you want to check them out.  If you enjoy my blog, please consider following me via Bloglovin, Networked Blogs, GFC, or by email subscription.  If you leave a comment and tell me you are a new follower, I will follow you back!


In Real Life:
It's been a long, but fun week for me.  The spring weather has been perfect here is California, which was wonderful for our school walk-a-thon.  I really enjoy our school community, seeing all the kids and their parents showing school spirit.

This weekend is the Bay Area Book Festival.  I don't know if I will go because all the authors I really want to see will be at Yallwest, also this weekend in Southern California!  Why did both book events have to be scheduled for the same weekend???  I am so disappointed.

On The Blog:
I've been stressed about my blog lately.  Why do so many books have to release in May???  Once I am approved for an advance copy of a book, I take that obligation seriously.  And so many wonderful books were released this week.  My favorite was Love From A to Z, by S.K. Ali.  It was so romantic, but also an unflinching look at Islamophobia.  I feel so lucky to be able to cheer on such fantastic books.

Now for the downside of blogging.  I had signed on to a blog tour that I would have posted to next week.  But finishing up the book today, I found that I could not write a positive review.  I hated to do this so close to publication, but I had to write to the publicist and tell them I could not participate in the blog tour as I could not support the book.  I feel awful, but I can't promote a book I don't believe in.  I think I will not be signing on to any more blog tours.  Too much pressure!

I'm really excited for these two books!  I've already read Aurora rising, but I think the audio book will be even more fun!  Kingsbane is the second book of the Furyborn series.  I really enjoyed the first book, and have high hopes for this one.  
 
That's it for this week.  Have a great Spring weekend!
