I wanted this to be so good. I really did. But then it just … wasn’t. I ended up giving it 2 stars and 1 really impassioned review because I thought it had so much potential and then it never lived up to it.
I did it! I finally did it! Here’s my review of Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I have a loooot of really strong feelings, though it is spoiler free so if you’ve read it and want to chat hit me up in the comments!
Wherein Michaela and Gretchen discuss a handfull of books that they feel are great books to bring to the BEACH or just generally read during those hot summer months.
I thought I could do a little book haul for this week, but it turns out I’ve acquired a looooot more books than I originally thought. Also, at the end there is a little life update for you guys about my most recent crazy life adventures and why I’ve got a new background to my videos. Remember to leave a comment and tell me what to read next!
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.
I’ll be honest – I was hoping for an awesome review here, but that’s not what I’ve got. Seriously, I thought this book was going to be AMAZING. It had such a dark premise, such an interesting wealth of ideas … I loved the concept. I still love the concept. And I love the characters and the world and Kendare writes wonderfully. The problem is the plot, and how mangled it got throughout the story. Sigh. Watch for more on why I was so sad!
Today’s review is spoiler free, but the rant is not. I manage to keep my review pretty even, but just … the ending of this book, guys. It touches on a serious pet peeve of mine too much NOT to talk about it. I love this series in general, and I think that Kresley Cole has done a fabulous job writing it but … I’m confused now. I may need to retract all these words when the next book comes out, but I also won’t be chomping at the bit to read it after this either.
