Unposted #audiobook reviews of 2016

As the year draws to a close, I realized that I've never posted several audio books that I've reviewed for AudioFile Magazine.

Here they are in no particular order (all titles are linked to my full reviews on AudioFile Magazine)

The Last Execution

by Jesper Wung-Sung 
A short YA title based on a true story.
"Surreal would be the best description of this book if only it were not based on truth. In 1853, Denmark exercised the death penalty for a final time, cleaving the head from 15-year-old Niels Nelson."  

by Joan Aiken
"This collection of eight short stories contains gentle tales of fantasy and magic--not the magic of wizards and wands, but of wishing mats and enormous cats and gifts brought by the winds."

by Ridley Pearson 
"This audiobook is a prequel to the Lock and Key series, a contemporary revision of the Sherlock Holmes canon. "
by Carrie Jones
 The first in a YA series.
"Kate Reinders narrates this campy story about Mana, a high school cheerleader who finds herself battling aliens in a quest to find her missing mom." 
by Nanci Turner Steveson
 "Narrator Tara Sands realistically interprets a well-off teen's wry observations of her dysfunctional family and their friends.
by Martha Jocelyn 
YA series
"Part of the high-interest series Secrets, this audiobook includes support for reluctant readers through narrator Kelly Pruner's clear diction, easy pacing, and decidedly conversational tone."
