I bought this classic horror to read for Fraterfest Halloween Readathon and was content to do so until Penguin Random House recently offered a FREE audio download of Frankenstein in connection with Kiersten Whites new release of The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein. So ya. I could not wait another minute. Now I have the pleasure …

The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein is a retelling of sorts of the famous Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
I guess I got the audio because it was recommended in the free audio download narrated by Jim Weiss. Idk. I was really loving Jim Weiss’ voice but when I went to recharge my iPod, I lost my place and I can’t recover it so I am forced to start from the beginning again. Ugh. It’s not going very fast. I am on chapter 6 in the Dark Descent but I’ve already listened up to chapter 9 once today already.*sigh. My iPod isn’t working the way I want 😦 I am going to start over from the beginning again tomorrow because I’m not retaining enough to know what the fuck is happening. This is why I like having the physical book! There is nothing wrong with this narrator. It’s a girl with an English accent. Katharine McEwan. Published by Listening Library.
“Exquisitely disturbing”, raves internationally best-selling author Stephanie Garber of this stunning and dark reimagining of Frankenstein.
Elizabeth Lavenza hasn’t had a proper meal in weeks. Her thin arms are covered with bruises from her “caregiver”, and she is on the verge of being thrown into the streets…until she is brought to the home of Victor Frankenstein, an unsmiling, solitary boy who has everything – except a friend.
Victor is her escape from misery. Elizabeth does everything she can to make herself indispensable – and it works. She is taken in by the Frankenstein family and rewarded with a warm bed, delicious food, and dresses of the finest silk. Soon she and Victor are inseparable.
But her new life comes at a price. As the year’s pass, Elizabeth’s survival depends on managing Victor’s dangerous temper and entertaining his every whim, no matter how depraved. Behind her blue eyes and sweet smile lies the calculating heart of a girl determined to stay alive no matter the cost…as the world she knows is consumed by darkness.

This was cute. Love the cover. Would like to read more from C.J. Hunt. Publishers Summary No Halloween in Rivers End is complete without A Touch of Magic… A few local teenagers have the crazy idea that RAMONA BAXTER is a witch. But she just wants to spend a quiet Halloween inside with the …
Review: Meh. Dark and dreary. Dank and gloomy. Like the Duracell bunny, it kept on going. It felt like it would never end. Suffice it to say, I’m not a fan. What can I say? Julie is sweet, Red is an asshole, Bran is full of himself, Currin likes to play with his food, and …
Listening to the audiobook I got from the library is pissing me the fuck off. Why does my iPod skip chunks of text, going from chapter 4 skipping to chapter 6? FFS! Then I can’t go backwards or forward in the proper sequence and it’s so bloody frustrating. It’s ruining my reading and listening experience! wah. I, however, …
Heavenly Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal I had to share this because it was recommended that I try it. It is an Oh She Glows recipe. I am pleased with how it turned out. It is delicious! It’s vegan but since I eat animal protein I used whipping cream on top, just the way I like it. …
