Today’s book review comes from team member Jessie, she blogs at http://behindthewillows.com/the-books-behind-the-willows/
Jessie chose to read and review Unblessed by Crystin Goodwin
Here is Jessie’s review.
I could tell you…
I could tell you about the world. The magic of the elements and the animals. The ceremonies and the changes. The extensive history of the people.
But I’d hate to ruin the way the author unfolds it for you.
I could tell you in great detail the why’s and wherefores of the characters whom I loved and those who, upon reflection, I wished had been a little more fleshed out.
But I don’t want to introduce any prejudice. I want you to be as taken with the people as I was.
I could tell you what I absolutely loved and what left me wanting.
But I won’t.
I could even tell you just how it leaves you hanging at the end to send you running off to Amazon to see if her next book has yet been published.
I could tell you all of that.
But all that’s really important.
All I really feel you need to know.
Is that I have three young girls who all require breakfast in the early morning.
And the night I sat down to read (and eventually finish) this book I was left with far, far, less than the recommend eight hours of sleep a person is supposed to receive.
Far, far, less.
Would I recommend it? It was my turn for the morning shift with the girls and it was still totally worth it.
This honest review was given in return for a free copy of the book from its author.

Thank you for such a good review. As you say you’d hate to ruin our reading experience, you say such a lot without giving anything away… and sounds like it’s an enthralling read 🙂
Thank you, “you say such a lot without giving anything away” was exactly what I was hoping for. 🙂
I hope you give the book a try!
What a wonderful and unique review. That, plus the startling and compelling cover have got me putting this book on my TBR list! Thanks for leaving much to my imagination…
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
