Black sheep yet again. Womp womp. I’ll start with the things I liked first. The world was really unique and interesting – a bit weird, sure, but it was cool. I liked that it had second person point of view, and the twist was great. I appreciated how all of the points of view came together. But that’s where my enjoyment stopped. I couldn’t connect to the characters at all and I just didn’t care about anything that was happening. […]

I don’t have much to say about this one other than I loved it to pieces! The narration is FANTASTIC, and I loved the characters and the sense of found family. There’s something about Klune’s quirky prose and almost sardonic humor that just draws me in. I really adore his writing – it’s magical, SUPER quotable, and also very poignant. There were some passages that were just so beautiful and spoke to me in a way I can’t describe – […]

Overall, this book was extremely generic. I feel like it didn’t bring anything new to the table as far as fantasy goes, and it just felt like a mashup of a bunch of other stories I’ve read a million other times before. The writing is also very bland. However, that isn’t to say that I didn’t enjoy it, because I did for the most part. I was a little bored in the middle, but it maintained my interest enough to […]

It’s not very often that I find a book that makes me literally laugh out loud, so I genuinely cherish Shelby as an author! The wit and humor that I loved so much from the first book was still present in this one, which makes me so happy! I do think that this suffered from a bit of Second Book Syndrome. I still enjoyed it, but it wasn’t quite as good as the first book. It felt like filler, to […]

I had seen the movie already, so I almost didn’t pick this book up. And while reading, I kept thinking that I was wasting my time because it was basically exactly how I remembered the movie (I’ll get to that misconception in a minute!). I did enjoy it for the most part, though! The writing style was really juvenile – this feels a lot more like MG than YA – but the story itself is good. I confess that I […]

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 […]
