's review

it was ok

I really wanted to love this, but honestly this was the weirdest book I've ever read, and I once read a book where the main character could listen to Justin Timberlake's music and literally transport herself into a realistic sex scene with him. So there's that. While there were a lot of things about this book that I really liked, I feel like I really missed the point unfortunately. The talking gnome was the best part though tbh. 10/10 would read an entire book about Baldr.

It's called The Seven Rays by Jessica Bendinger. Although, fair warning, while the whole JT thing sounds really cool, it wasn't executed very well. I only gave that book 1 star :(

Sofia Felino Awww too bad. I will check it out (because I like to live dangerously) but I will keep my expectations low because I tend to agree with your bookish opinions ;)
