I love a good fantasy book. But sometimes when the fantasy book is over 600 pages, it can break me.
So here is a list of books I enjoyed but I almost quit in the middle of reading it.
A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas pg. 751
A Court of Silver Flames felt like a long and smutty book.
It didn’t help that I didn’t jive with Nesta’s personality in this one. Don’t get me wrong, this was good in its own way. But it was a long book of a nasty attitude and her treating her loving family like crap. To me, it was a hard read.
Court by Tracy Wolff pg 707
Agh Court. I have a hate-and-love relationship with the fourth book of the Crave series. Where ‘My Mate’ and ‘My Curls.’ were mentioned GAGILLION times throughout this book. It irritated me to no end.
This book was massive only because it was wrapping up a lot of the serious plot points that happened throughout the series.
When you think this series is over, but no, it is not. There are two other books after this.
Bloody Mercy by Vela Roth pg 648
Blood Mercy was massive but it was massively good. There is a heck of a lot of world-building in this one. But it is done in a way that really pulls you in. You really see character growth in this one that is captivating.
This one was a hard read for me because being in the same world for way too long can be a drag for me sometimes.
And the love story. Slow burn and *chefs kiss.*
The House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas pg 803
This goes to show that Sarah J. Maas knows how to write MAASsive books. Haha…get it?
Regardless, The House of Earth and Blood has a heck of a lot of world-building that can cause the most hearty fantasy readers to quit.
Lots of readers say that the last 100 pages are when it really gets interesting. Which I agree with. The big height in action happens at the end. The rest is a lot of mystery solving and such. Can get boring if you are not dedicated enough till the end.
