Do you know when you finish a book and immediately need to start telling everyone to read it? Well, that is me right now after finishing the Beautiful Carnage audiobook. I listened to this book on audible and the narrators were phenomenal. The book is also available on KindleUnlmited.

I grabbed this audiobook when Audible was having their 85% off sale and I. AM. SO. PROUD. OF. ME. for this particular impulse buy because wow, it was so so so good. Bridget and Jake Bordauex really knocked this book out of the park. I think their rendition of this story is part of the reason I’m so utterly obsessed with it. It was an amazing performance and the emotion they portrayed in their narration was spot on.

If you’ve never read a Twisted Sister book yet, this is a great one to test the waters with. While this, in my personal opinion, is different from the other books I’ve read, including their United States of Anarchy worlds, the Sisters writing style shines through beautifully. Caroline and Susanne are capable of ripping emotions out of you in a whirlwind that makes your head spin, and this standalone was no different.

This is a series of interconnected standalone books and I cannot wait to move on to the next book. I love these characters that I’ve met in this book so much and can’t wait to meet the other brothers and learn more about their family.
