At first glance, «The Obsidian Tower» has so many elements that I love in fantasy books, that’s why I was so surprised to find out that I didn’t like it. I was even more surprised when I couldn’t pinpoint what exactly was wrong or what exactly I didn’t like.

Hi, guys! I hope you’ve managed to control your Animal Crossing addiction and actually made some progress in your O.W.L.s TBR over this weekend! 😀 I still haven’t succumbed to the pressure to buy Switch, so I’m safe from THAT addiction.

However, it had a lot of issues, that I couldn’t just overlook.
I felt so excited and happy to have my “wish granted” on NetGalley, as that rarely happens and this book sounded amazing. So I’m slightly disappointed that it wasn’t my cup of tea.

Take a look at my thought process for this week’s TTT topic:
