It was a bit to slow and all over the place for me

The cover is gorgeous & the story sounded intriguing, definitely felt inspired by Gaiman's Stardust. But . . . while an easy read, it feels like a debut novel that needed a bit more work. Aside from the overdone teen angst, there was too much tell & too little show/action. Despite the interesting folklore, this story is ultimately forgettable.

This is also my January #roll100 roll 2 book

StaceGhost I felt the same way! I tried really hard but ended up not finishing it 7mo
wanderinglynn @StaceGhost I skimmed most of it just to find out what happened. I should‘ve just DNF‘d it. 7mo
StaceGhost @wanderinglynn that makes me feel so much better! I‘m a completist and have a lot of DNF related guilt lol 7mo

This book right here…is the definition of this meme.
But I honestly don‘t listen to reviews at all. I always focus on what my bookish heart tells me I will love 😊😊😊
What are your thoughts on this?

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Ha! I always assume everyone else is wrong on Goodreads. 🤣😂🤣 13mo
KathyWheeler Sometimes I‘m very confused by their ratings. I book I love will get average to bad ratings, while a book I‘m not fond of will get 5s. 13mo
Karisa 😂 That was me seeing the percentage on Specimen Days. It‘s one of my favorites… but apparently not for others. I‘ll stand by my choice! 😂 13mo

Prairiegirl_reading I definitely don‘t go by goodreads. 13mo
wanderinglynn I started reading this book a couple of months ago but couldn‘t get into it,so I set it aside. I may give it another go this month. That being said, I take ratings with a grain of salt. Everyone has books they love and don‘t love. There are books I love with low ratings. So what? I still love it regardless of what others think. And there are highly rated books that I panned. That‘s the beauty of books—there are books for every type of reader. 💜 13mo
persephone1408 I'm this was also with movies. I LOVE lots of movies that most people think are bad...I have great taste! Its everyone else who's wrong lmao 13mo
Ruthiella I enjoy using goodreads for cataloging what I‘ve read, but I pay VERY little attention to the ratings. If you loved it, you loved it and your taste in books cannot be denied! 13mo
bthegood It's a win-win for authors - if there are good ratings people pick up the book, if there are not good ratings people pick up the book and assume others are wrong about it 😊 13mo

🎧 HOURS of angsty YA internal monologue & endless descriptions of “sour” stomachs. NO teen is this ridiculously angsty. MINUS 2 STARS!

I forced myself to power through because I own the OwlCrate version of this book & I‘m glad I did. If you can stomach (ha) the angst, the story was a lovely fairytale about love, betrayal, family, friendship, growth. SLOW burn. Everything good about this book gained a star back from what I took.

A solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Twainy PS - yikes … poor ratings! Read the 2 paragraph publisher‘s summary! I believe it‘s based on an Indian folk tale? It‘s sweet but it took me 60% of the book to get into it (I really have come to dislike the YA angst). (edited) 1y

I didn‘t finish this one sadly. After getting more than 30% through it‘s doing nothing for me.
