Try Not to Die: In Brightside by Mark Tullius
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

MORE THAN TWO DOZEN WAYS TO DIE…
Guess who found almost every single one?!

I found this scrolling through the Horror section on AudioBooksUnleashed. I already know that I like Mark Tullius, so that part is a no brainer. I saw the word ‘Interactive’ and my eyes lit up, my ears twitched…then I saw ‘Choose -Your-Own-Adventure..” I made a weird little ‘eiieeee!!! ::clapclapclap::’ sound, and I was redeeming my code before I could even figure out what the Hell that weird noise that just came out of my mouth was.
I had already started the book when I realized that I missed the part where this is BOOK TWO.in the series! Oh well, it’s good so far, let’s keep on truckin’.
I don’t think that the fact I died seven times by chapter twelve had anything to do with me skipping Book One. By the time I finished trying not to die In Brightside, I had died twenty times. I gotta chalk that up to poor impulse control, and bad decision making.
I’m hooked now though. I’m trying to decide if I should go back and read Book 1 now, or search the earth to see if Book Three is available because I’m starting to develop an eye twitch trying to figure out what is going to happen next!
It’s narrated by Maxine Denis. I don’t think I’ve listened to anything else she has narrated, but I think she did a great job here. An audio book can die from it’s narrator – I’ve shelved quite a few. This was really good, and I hope she stays throughout the series.

Until next time… Stay Healthy! Be Safe, Not Scared.

‘FUCKNESS’ – A Re-Read Turned Into Something Better Than The Original!

Fuckness by Andersen Prunty

fuckness_thumb_01

Audiobook rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I was about 25% into a reread of this yesterday when I ran into a copy of the audiobook via the author’s Twitter feed (@andersenprunty). I was doing a few things, so I switched it on right away.
Normally, (well, back when real life WAS normal), audio books are just a convenience for me, not a preference. I’ve trained my brain to become friends with my Kindle robo-voice to the point where I can listen to her during work commutes just like any narrator.
BUT…
The narrator of this Audible edition of Fuckness is so fuckin’ awesome that this ‘reread’ turned into an entirely new experience.

Jeff Bower is the narrator of Fuckness, and although I’m about to stalk his ass to see what else he’s done – he could just be The Voice of Andersen Prunty in my head forevermore. (Just DL’d an audio book which A.P. narrates himself, I’ll comment more after listening.)
Jeff Bower though…how can I explain… he has this evil little giggle that he does, kind of to himself, and it adds something undefinable to his character. Love it. It reminds me of that evil, psychotic side of myself when I’m heartily laughing at something that I shouldn’t be – does that help explain it?

I just made a quote from this book into a #BleedingMeme, check it out the new #BleedingMemes Page HERE.

Looking for the audiobook code? There are some codes left for many of his books, US and UK, HERE.

So, I’m trying to link you up to Jeff Bower directly, but I’m getting lost in infinite link loops. Oh, the horror!! But, I  am seeing that he narrates non-fiction Wicca books, so… another bonus point for Jeff!  (UPDATE: Twitter @JeffBowerLA –  Loving husband. Aspiring Muppet.)

Peace, Love, and necrophilia ♡
