  • I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review from the narrator.This book was interesting I am going to be completely honest I just listened to my first audiobook, Yes Please, and it was spectacular I was eager to continue my foray into this world With Cupidity, I didn t have the same success The side characters were fun to listen to They all had a special charisma the narrator provided with inflections or pitching My favorite was Jar, the protagonist s younger brother who spoke in [...]

  • Cupidity, by Patricia Wood, has a story and characters that will stay in my memory That s a strong statement for me as I listen to many books While I may enjoy them, the story and characters lose their detail after a period of time I really don t think that will happen with this one For that, I m giving it five stars Intelligently written, it s quirky and unique, entertaining and a book I d recommend There were several times of unexpectedly laughing out loud while listening to this It s not deep [...]

  • Cupidity It was fun experiencing small town girl dealing with these trials and tribulations thrown at her I really enjoyed the way the writer wrote these characters that felt very real They reminded me of some of the people I met when visiting a small town in Texas The main character was very positive, and I really liked that.This was a nice, fun read.
