I had to DNF A Thousand Nights By: E.K. Johnston!!!! :(

Thank you to NetGalley and Disney-Hyperion for allowing me to read and review A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston.

I tried so hard to get into this book, but I couldn't do it. I had to DNF A Thousand Nights because it was making me miserable. It really is a shame because I was really looking forward to reading it! I was thrilled when I got approved on NetGalley. I was ready for an entertaining story filled with adventure, fantasy, and magic.  A Thousand Nights wasn't like that for me. It's not what I had been expecting at all.

Some things I didn't like:

1.) Um... does anyone besides Lo-Melkhiin have a name!?

2.) The main character kept talking about her sister and father. My sister this, my sister that, my sister this, my father that, my father this... OMG STOP.

3.) The writing was flat.

4.) Too much description, not enough dialogue.

5.) The main character was boring, annoying, whiny, and lacked a personality of any kind.

6.) There was no connection between the reader and the characters or between the reader and the story.

Overall I was like, "WHO CARES?"  I'm sorry I just could not get into A Thousand Nights. Neither the story or characters interested me and that is a MUST have for me.



  1. I completely agree with you! I was the exact same, this book completely failed to hold my interest from the start and 'my fathers father father' and lack of names only added to it.. Surely I wasn't the one expecting an epic romance? such a shame.
    Great Review Erin!

    1. Yes! It just fell so flat for me. I agree, I was expecting a romance too. Overall I was just so disappointed. What I imagined in my head was so different and better. LOL. It's a shame, I really wanted to like this one. I'm glad I'm not the only one who wasn't thrilled with it though.

  2. Well I guess I'm glad that I didn't request this because apparently no ones likes it !
    Loved your review :)

    1. Well maybe someone out there will enjoy it. Lol, it wasn't me though.

      Thanks so much! :)

  3. Man that sucks. I was really planning on reading this but I haven't been seeing the best reviews at all. After reading The Wrath and the Dawn I wanted to go to this

    1. I haven't read The Wrath and the Dawn yet, but I saw some people LOVED IT and then didn't care for this one. :/
