A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

Format (That I Read It):



When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it... or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!

Initial Thoughts:

EVERYONE was raving about the second book in this series since it came out this year and so I decided to give it a shot. Also, it's a Beauty and the Beast retelling so how could I not!


I read Throne of Glass also by Sarah J Maas and wasn't a huge fan of it so I was nervous to read this book. Many people said that they preferred A Court of Thorns and Roses over the Throne of Glass series so that gave me hope. They weren't wrong! I really enjoyed this whole book. The only reason it's not five stars is because there were just a few things that made me uncomfortable even though it shouldn't have. Feyre was so much better as the main character than Celaena was. Also, this book being a Beauty and the Beast retelling warmed my heart. The Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie! I found the world to be one of the best things. I love all the different courts and how they represented each of the seasons/times of the day. Then when I thought it couldn't get any better Rhysand was introduced. I don't know what it was about him but I was instantly in love with his character. Everything about him was fascinating except for the fact that *censored spoiler*.  I love the mythology that Sarah J. Maas wove through his character. I'm going to read A Court of Mist and Fury asap. I don't if my heart will be able to take it, though.
