Nevernight was absolutely amazing and couldn't agree more, how sexy was it! I was surprised, but those scenes were so well written, sensual without being seedy. I didn't mind The Road To Winter, I enjoyed the atmospheric world building, but there felt as though there were missing parts of the storyline and a lot of telling without showing. But I felt the same way about You Know Me Well, I just couldn't get into it and ended up DNFing. I was looking forward to The Boundless Sublime because I enjoyed Green Valentine, but a bit torn about it. Wonderful reviews Jeann, really enjoyed watching them <3
My recent post Trial By Fire
YESSS I'm so glad that you loved it Kelly! THose sex scenes were done so well and it didn't feel gross (like ACOMAF did *cough cough*). Yeah, I felt like the Road to Winter could've definitely been fleshed out a lot more, but I enjoyed it for what it was. Thanks for watching Kelly, I hope you are well!
Thanks Lauren, HOW GREAT WAS NEVERNIGHT OMG. Still crying from that chapter
I was SO invested. I'm not normally a high fantasy fan, but I absolutely loved the world and characters Jay created. And same!! I felt so hurt and betrayed, haha.

Great month, Jeann! I hope your September will be just as good – if not better. Oh, love, love, love your shelves!
My recent post : Chasing Fire by Nora Roberts
Thank you Joy! I love them too, especially staring at them!
Great wrap up Jeann! It's a pity that some of them were kind of average. But hopefully your September will be a much more enjoyable reading month!
Thank you Jenna! I'm reading EOS so that's a good sign 😀
Hi Jeann, lovely to meet you on Saturday at the 'Love YA' sessions. Weren't they interesting, and fun!
