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 […]

I was worried I wouldn’t enjoy this with it being historical, but I picked it up anyway because I LOVED The Ten Thousand Doors of January. And Alix delivered yet again! It wasn’t quite as good as Ten Thousand Doors, but it was still haunting and beautiful! Harrow’s prose is absolutely lovely and engaging and it just draws you in! I loved the magic of this story. It made me want to crawl into the pages and live there! I’m […]

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 […]

Holy. Wow. This book. I did NOT expect to love it as much as I did! I’d heard people raving about it, and I wanted to know what the fuss was about. The audiobook came highly recommended, so on a total whim, I downloaded it from the library. The audio blew me away! The hype is 100% deserved. This book was positively stunning and atmospheric in the vein of Laini Taylor! It actually felt a LOT like Strange the Dreamer. Completely […]

This book was suuuper creepy!! I love how twisted and bizarre it was. It was definitely dark and atmospheric – this would have been a perfect Halloween read! I didn’t think it was scary, but definitely disturbing at times. That was 100% the selling point of this book for me! I adore the dark and disturbing and this book was full of it. My main complaint about it, though, is that I couldn’t connect to any of the characters. I […]
