BAMF Review: Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

BAMF Review: Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

Posted February 25, 2017 by Jamie in BAMF Reviews, Reviews / 8 Comments

This was one of those books that we both felt pretty neutral on because while it had pretty prose with vivid descriptions that transported us into the world, it left us wanting a lot more. This felt over before it really began and had us wishing the pace slowed down so we could savour the story, the relationships, and the world just a bit more. While every story is a copy of a copy of a copy, and WINTERSONG is technically a retelling, this story felt like nothing new. It was too easy to compare this one to others that […]

Dani’s Review DNF @ 19% This review comes as a surprise to me. I didn’t think I’d love this book, but I thought I’d like it well enough. And it started out on the path of 3 stars, which is good in my opinion. (4 is great, 5 is OMFGAMAZING.) But it quickly lost steam.
