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 […]

I’m going to be honest, I let this review go for WAY too long. At this point I really don’t remember anything at all about the book. But, in my defense, it wasn’t all that memorable and didn’t stick with me to begin with. I had forgotten much of what I read within the first week. I didn’t enjoy it very much while I was reading, either. I didn’t care about any of the characters or anything that was happening, […]

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 this book was pretty hit-or-miss for me. I didn’t like it in the beginning – the MC was royally pissing me off – then the middle was really good, but the ending got rocky again. The Faire was by far the best part and where this book shines. The nerd in me loved the setting, it made me miss Ren Faire! So, the beginning. I honestly hated Emily. She was petulant and childish, and sorry but she was fucking stupid. […]
