      The prose is undeniably well written, but unfortunately the story left a lot to be desired Things happen, and characters move around a bit, but nothing exciting ever really happens There s lots of small moments with heavy handed moralistic messages to be had, but I just couldn t get into the way it was delivered I ve never read any of the Seraphina books, and unfortunately, this book has retroactively put my interest off Rachel Hartman s earlier series For those of you drawn to this book because [...]

      YOU GUYS.What Hartman did here is something I have been wanting the fantasy genre to do FOR A WHILE NOW in that Tess is, in response to her direct situation, unlikeable and unsympathetic and therefore AMAZING She s ungraceful, uncooperative, and unrepentant I love her so much I might burst It s all Come for the fantasy quest adventure STAY FOR THE DISSECTION OF RAPE CULTRE and it s absolutely on point throughout.One of the hallmarks of Hartman s work is her ability to kill your heart with gramma [...]

      AGH i m not a fan of the girl dresses as boy trope but i love rachel hartman so DUH i ll be reading this if you re interested in why i don t like it view spoiler well, i m a trans boy and let me tell you, it s not just a matter of cutting your hair and wearing boy clothes and BAM everyone s like yes this is a boy yet in these books that s how it goes, and idk, i don t like that it s just a personal thing, i guess, nothing inherently wrong with the trope it s just yeah also i feel like it s overd [...]

      DNF at 30% so I won t leave a rating, but I generally give up if I can t get into a book after trying super hard for a few weeks I couldn t connect with anything and the story didn t seem like it was going anywhere original anyways It just drained all enjoyment for reading right out of me

    6. Dianne on said:

      My Rating 2.5 StarsTess, the main character is proof that we are NOT cut from the same cloth, that we all dance to the beat of a different drum and that no matter how hard one tries, that square peg will never fit into that round hole of conformity Unfortunately for Tess, in the medieval kingdom of Goredd, that is totally and completely unacceptable for a lady Rebellious acts, even if justified have consequences and Tess has spent her life facing them, head on, but she is who she is, period The [...]

      I don t like to read reviews before I ve jotted down my own impressions of a book, though I usually cast my eyes rapidly down the column, picking out words here and there While doing that to this book, I got whiplash than usual superlatives in one chunk of text would be followed by bored hated impossible and the like.I guess I can see that My own impression of this book, which I finished a few days ago, and have been contemplating since, is a glorious mess Things I liked the dragon creatures an [...]

      Check out reviews Perspective of a WriterIn this medieval fantasy world of Seraphina fame, Tess is a stubborn troublemaker She refuses the opportunities she does have to hare off into the world When she runs into an old friend, a quigutl, she finds a purpose that hearkens back to the dreams of her youth.The short reviewFirst I feel a need to explain my rating the writing is top notch, clearly a 5 star the storytelling though leaves a lot to be desired, a 1 star and perhaps even a zero star That [...]

      3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2018 02 18 I enjoyed Tess of the Road than I expected, but probably less than I had hoped I wasn t a big fan of Rachel Hartman s Seraphina duology when I read it, but nevertheless felt optimistic about her new book because I have a love for wanderlust stories and the description of Tess as a troublemaker immediately piqued my interest.To her credit, our protagonist was living up to that promise from the start When she was a little girl, Tess was [...]

      I m trying to gather and organize my thoughts on this one but let me tell you, I m having a hard time This book is a hard one to review in the fact that it was in total opposition of what I expected.Before I get into the review, I do want to recommend that before reading this book, read the prior two novels set in this world entitled, Seraphina and Shadowscale I have not read those novels and I think if I had it would have made everything clear This fantasy world is a difficult one to understan [...]

      Guysssssss THIS BOOK This surpassed all expectations I had for this story Tess is such a wonderfully flawed character and her healing journey broke my heart over and over again I cam genuinely say she is one of my absolute favorite main characters in a book now This book tackles so many important and hard topics that I am deeply passionate about Religion, slut shaming, the glorification of virginity, and the dissection of rape culture Not even to mention the poignant commentary on parenting this [...]

      ARC received from Random House Children s via Netgalley for a fair review It is my policy to not give a star rating to a book that I DNF We are adrift, and the thinnest breeze may blow us where it will As Tess was growing up it became exceedingly evident that she was the bad child in her family After a series of situations that find her on the bad side her family decides to send her to a nunnery Tess decides to take her future to the road instead.The StoryI only made it to 32% before I decided I [...]

      I received a free ARC copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review DNF at 40% Sadly, this book is not for me It greatly lacked the spark and magic of Seraphina I tried to like this I really did.Generally, with ARCs, I always try to push through until the end But even my effort to try to push through until I about the halfway point was a bit of a struggle Because all this book makes me feel is bored First off, let me start by saying the writing is not particularly bad The book tried, I th [...]

      This is going to be a very difficult review to write.Tess of the Road filled a void for me that won t I hope exist for most people, and because of that, Tess is my soul I m convinced there must be a better word in German to describe how much I love Tess Dombegh and how much I am Tess Dombegh I can t find it, so I will try to explain.I have felt Tess pain I have known Tess rejection Although she has certainly had greater misfortune than me and certainly greater adventure her heart is my heart in [...]

      Trigger warnings for this book miscarriage, slut shaming, rape.I was lucky enough to acquire the ARC of this book in a trade, and I ve since passed it along to one of the team leads at the Stanford bookstore, who s quite the Seraphina fan, enough to have made that book one of her official Staff Picks Tess of the Road, it s quite a different kettle of fish than Hartman s previous two fantasy tales, and while I give it the same official GR rating, it s really of a 4.25, if not a 4.5, than Seraphi [...]

      I received a copy of Tess of the Road via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.The concept is good and the plot is there but I will be honest, I DNF d Tess of the Road at 17% This is the quickest I have ever decided that a book is not for me but I just cannot stand it Because everything to make a great story is there I am giving it two stars It has promise but that is it.Tess is angsty and angry She does not care for others feelings and is very poor me, sob story, everyone hates me I had t [...]

      Update 1 19 18 Ohhh how I tried with this one I love Rachel Hartman, but reading this was like wading through molasses While the characters were complex and original, particularly Tess, I just couldn t get into it enough to read than a few chapters The prose just caused my mind to wander and trying to decipher the meaning from certain passages left me exhausted.I m disappointed in myself with this one, and I think down the road I will give it another shot For now, after three months of struggle [...]

      I have never read a fantasy book like this Where to start Tess of the Road is one of those books that has become essential to me, one of the books that will always be a part of me I feel like it gave words and shape to the subtle emotional traumas that can make a person turn on themselves and think of themselves as nothing, as inherently bad The depression and apathy and anger at everything and everyone Butwhat makes this beautiful, and special, and incredible is Tess s step at a time, day by da [...]

      Tess of The Road will not be for everyone In fact, I feel like majority of the people who pick this up because of the gorgeous cover, or because the author recognition are going to mark this book as DNF Tess of The Road follows our main character, Tess, who is upset with how her life is going and after several not so great choices that have showed her the truth about the closest people to her, she decides to run away In order to blend in better, she decides to disguise herself as a boy and takes [...]

      Tess of the Road was a book that fell flat for me, which was extremely disappointing The one thing I really enjoyed about this book was the writing style The author really has a way with words The writing flowed so beautifully and really pulled me in I was hoping the writing style was enough to make me love this book, but I just couldn t get into this story.I think the worst part of this book for me was the main character, Tess I just had such a hard time connecting with her I loved her modern a [...]
