Okay so I wasn’t a huge fan of Snow Like Ashes, and I tried to read These Rebel Waves and couldn’t get into it. But when I saw that Kristen (who I adore) was co-writing the book, of course I had to pick it up! I didn’t love it like I’d hoped to, but I did enjoy it while I was reading it even though it didn’t necessarily stick with me. I am a HUGE fan of stories with gods […]

Honestly, this is a “it’s not you, it’s me” situation. I used to read Paranormal Romance a lot in my early 20’s, and I just plain got sick of it. After a while, it all reads EXACTLY THE SAME. Super sexy, single Mary Sue – a virgin too, eye roll – in her mid 20’s (what 25 year old has NEVER HAD AN ORGASM? I mean I’m sure it happens occasionally but why is it EVERY SINGLE PR EVER?!) meets […]

This post is basically the “epic Jessi fail of Adult Fantasy reviews” lmao, why am I having such bad luck with Adult Fantasy?! And audiobooks at that!! Okay, WHAT THE HELL IS EVERYONE RAVING ABOUT?! This is one of the most decorated high fantasies in existence and I absolutely hated it. (What is wrong with me?!) I was SO. BORED. Through the entire fucking novel. Nothing happened! The characters sucked! The plot sucked! The writing is dull AF! Like I could rant […]

This book was SO. TEDIOUS. The narrator was okay – not bad, but not great either. And the book took FOREVER! And I feel like nothing really happened. I just listened to the audiobook a month or two ago and I remember almost nothing. The characters were hard to keep straight, too. There were several sets of names that sounded almost identical (it’s fantasy so probably spelled differently) and I kept mixing them up. And I just didn’t care about […]

Oh my goodness, I found an Urban Fantasy that I actually enjoyed! And that breaks out of the genre! I usually hate Urban Fantasy, because they all read exactly the same. For once I was pleasantly surprised! This one stands out and brought a fresh perspective to the table that I thoroughly enjoyed. First of all, SINDARI. Um, sentient magical tiger sidekick, YES PLEASE! Actually, he was the reason I picked this up in the first place. Ya’ll know I’m a […]

Okay, so to understand why I picked this up and why it was so poignant for me, I have to get really personal for a minute. My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, which has spread to his bone, brain, and kidneys; he recently stopped chemo and was given 3-6 weeks to live. I’ve been looking for books dealing with loss, and this one popped up in my search a few times and I passed it by because, […]
