Don’t worry guys, I’m nowhere near off the SJM bandwagon. I’m just saying that I had some plot and character issues with this book, which isn’t normal. The review itself is spoiler free, but there IS a spoiler section that I give you plenty of warning about! I’m really looking to engage with you guys, so give me a shout in the comments.
Back again! With more nonfiction! I’m really sorry I can’t kick this but I hope you like it! I loved this book more than Princess Diarist, especially because it had more cohesion to it. It just wasn’t entirely what I expected, either…
Also, I really thought I’d fixed the video proportion problem but it still exported this way? I may need more technical expertise than I have with the new editor I’m using…
I had such high hopes for this audiobook, but was genuinely disappointed. Carrie Fisher is a beautiful writer, but this book was not what I was expected at all.
Also, I’m using a new camera and apparently exported the video in the wrong size. Whoops. Don’t worry about it. Don’t watch my face. Just … enjoy I guess?
I’M BACK! It literally took me three tries to edit this and get it to export, so the editing isn’t a shiny as it maybe could be because I was really getting tired of the exercise. Perhaps that is fitting, as this book isn’t quite as shiny as it looks either, but it does look VERY, VERY cool.
We old m*hf*hers, we old.
This is the first of our REAL ADULT BOOK CLUB. We used to say we were college friends, well folks… we are no longer students. We are now adult humans, with adult things, READING BOOKS ABOUT TEEN WITCHES, HELL YEAH.
I fully accept that nobody might care about this review but me, but the feminist in me had some things to say about it so I couldn’t help myself. Yes, this is a nonfiction biography BUT it is considered the definitive biography on Catherine the Great so if you care I guess this would be a book for you? I’m probably talking to dead air here. That’s cool. I’ll keep my nerd self over here.
Well. Here we are. There are my top 5 disappointing reads in 2016. I chose them based not on whether or not I think they were bad books, but rather that the expected enjoyment was far and away not what I got from the book in general. Enjoy, I guess?
