    Is it just me or would this world make an excellent video game? (But not a PG version ?) I?m a sucker for a good sibling storyline, but the complex world/storytelling level felt like it dominated this book. Maybe I would feel differently if I read the companion book. For all ...

    I received this ARC via NetGalley for an honest review See this review and others like it on the blog here http://vicariouslyvoraciously.com/rev... After reading any of Tucholke's books you have to sit a minute and soak in everything you just experienced. Because that...

    I recieved an ARC from Edelweiss and absolutely adored this book. It has all of the things that draw me back constantly to Tucholke's books: heart-breakingly lush prose, expansive casts of unique characters, and the most atmospheric settings. It was wonderful to revisit the world ...

    This is my first read from the author. It's a bit of getting used to because the character and location names are so foreign to me though Pig Witch and its living situation is funny. This story relive the past often, like how Torvi met Viggo, how the Butcher Bard came to town, wol...

    I'm not quite sure what to think of this book. I really enjoyed "Boneless Mercies" so I was psyched to get this companion book. Unfortunately, it took me ELEVEN days to get through it. Not a great sign... If I'm honest, this might have been a DNF for me except fo...

    Fantastic, Tucholke is such a beautiful writer and her female characters are written so well. If you loved The Boneless Mercies, you will love this. I really hope this author decides to write more books set in this world, it is so lush + well developed. This specific story had quite th...

    (Disclaimer: I received this book from Netgalley. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) Seven Endless Forests is not so much of a retelling, as a story about a girl trying to save her sister. Told by her mother that all she is every going to be good for is...

    disclaimer: I received a copy free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. After a devastating plague that swept through Torvi?s home, the only person she has left is her sister Morgunn. When Morgunn is taken by Uther, a flame-loving wolf-prief who leads a pack of wil...

    I received an ARC through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review! DNF at 50% When I read The Boneless Mercies, I thought it was a good book with fantastic writing, but the characters weren't that interesting and the plot was rather nonexistent. I attributed that to not b...

    I didn't read The Boneless Mercies and - my bad - I didn't know this was a companion book. There were a few times when I didn't completely get the references to places or fantastic aspects of this story. At least, I personally felt like I was not able to grasp everything...

    DNFed 45% While I didn't hate this book it just wasn't able to capture my attention. This book started off quite promising I was intrigued by the characters and the world being built up seemed pretty interesting however for some reason the more I read the more I felt my...

    You know a book has done its job when you are so consumed with the story that you forget who and what you are. This loose retelling of the Arthur legend unexpectedly dug its claws into my heart through its atmospheric writing and magical aesthetic. The constant mention of what the char...

    The Seven Endless Forests is a book that I can probably only review through a pros / cons list. Pros: - The writing in this book is absolutely gorgeous. It feels like old-fashioned fantasy without ever being boring or clunky. This was definitely one of my favorite aspects of the b...

    I wish I read an encyclopedia instead of this book. Well, okay, not any encyclopedia. A fantastical one. A magic-y fairytale-y encyclopedia documenting the crazy cool little things of a made-up world. Written by April Genevieve Tucholke. It can even be about the universe of this boo...

    When I saw there was going to be a companion to The Boneless Mercies, I knew I needed it! And this cover alone is golden! Torvi was the perfect MC with an emotional backstory. On her journey, she doesn?t forget about what had happened to her in her past, but instead, let it make h...

    Around a 3 and a 3.5 actually. It was a pretty good book. Now im gonna say the things I didnt like, BUT beare with me I dont hate everything and this was a great book. I felt that there were parts that needed more development. A specific relationship that the author builds, for me...

    April Genevieve Tucholke can always be counted on for lyricism and sensory writing, but this book lacks the gravity of its predecessor. It?s an imaginative retelling of the Arthurian legend, but it often spirals into tangential legends and mostly sees its characters sitting fireside,...

    When you've loved a book and you discover that there is a companion novel set in the same world as that book you obviously have to read it. But Seven Endless Forests was like going to see a band that you really love, only to discover that their new album isn't anywhere near a...

    Holy crap. I need another book by this author stat! Seven Endless Forests was a wild ride. All the world-building in this was amazing and I sort of wished it existed. Besides the world, this book had so many characters. Probably way too many to keep track of but they were all equall...

    Rating: 2.5 After reading The Boneless Mercies last year I was excited to see there would be a companion novel. The one thing that I enjoy about this author is her world-building. She creates the lore and different magical groups so well. I really liked that this specific book had d...
