A Court of Thorns and Roses
A Court of Thorns and Roses | Sarah J. Maas
THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERPerfect 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!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 over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin--and his world--forever.

Belated entry on this - I really liked this take on the fey, and fey curses. At it's core it feels like an alternate telling of beauty and the beast meets a badass little red riding hood, but with far more political plots and a more involved backstory. If you liked Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik, give this a try.

Excellent and interesting read. Enchanting and cunning magic. Lovable and detestable characters. Worth the hype!

Bookish Song Nr. 38: Out of My Mind

This is the proof that you don't have to like a book to have a song connected to it. Deezer came up with Out of My Mind by Reuben and the Dark and my brain sent me back into the story. At least back to those part I still could enjoy (now I'm just waiting for the book to be over 😅)

Anger. Surrender. Bliss. Devastation. Triumph. All those emotions and more are encountered in this initial book of the series. I cried. I cheered. I groaned and winced. By the end I was rooting for Feyre with all my heart, and couldn‘t wait to dive into book 2. #recentlyread #nospoilers #fantasy

P.S. Thank you to a friend of mine for prompting me to move these up the TBR and crack open the box!

I only read this because my daughter is a huge fan, bought it for me at Christmas and has been pestering me all year to read it. It‘s not my usual genre and I would never have picked it up for myself but I quite enjoyed it. It was a very interesting concept, the story kept a good pace and I even liked the characters. All in all, a good book.

aa_guer2021 Just finished this one recently. Probably a #blameLitsy situation that I got the box. I hope you move on to the rest, as it takes a turn, but a fascinating one… 1mo

Very different from what I usually read, but very, very enjoyable. I flew through this and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. In fact, @Alisnazzy came home with a copy of the second book last night 😂 Recommended.

Definitely worth the read. I didn‘t want to put this book down. Currently waiting for the second book to be available at my library.

If you‘re into romance and a bit of action as well as suspense, this is a good go-to.

@Alisnazzy was reading the second book in this series last night, and I said, “I mean to read that series someday.” She got up from her chair and came back with this. I guess nothing‘s going to get in my way now (except for all the other books waiting to read 😂)

This dedication pushed me over the edge. Once I read the acknowledgements. & went back to this... My heart exploded ❤

I had put off reading this book because "I don't like high fantasy." Well, still probably true, but this book was the exception. The characters are so well written, that I sincerely have a strong positive emotional response to all of them: the good & the bad guys. Some of the writing was too flowery for me, but still wow ?

Have you ever put off reading a book series because it's just not in your preferred genre? I'm kicking myself for not having read A Court Of Thorns and Roses sooner. So good!!

The.Great.Catsby That is EXACTLY how I am feeling after just finishing this book. Read Throne of Glass, didn't like it, so I assumed I didn't like high fantasy. Well, I loved this! 2mo

While not as good as ToG in my opinion, this is a very imaginative and intriguing retelling of Beauty and the Beast. A reread for me actually but my initial read was so long ago, I couldnt remember anything lol. I am interested to see where the series goes! It did feel rushed in some areas, but I can understand why from a plot standpoint.

I don‘t know why it took me so long to read this book — especially since it‘s a very good Beauty and the Beast retelling. I loved all of the characters and how it leaned so heavily into the fairy tale elements (magic, mystery, darkness, trials by three, transformations).

I already ordered the next book!

So, to be completely honest I didn't think I would like this book as much as I did. I really did not get that much into it until the middle to end of book. Trust me I thought it was all hype because so many people are like this series is amazing. I get it now. It really is great. I don‘t read a lot of romance books. Which is kind of funny since I‘m single and have cats so you would think it‘s part of the aesthetic lol 😆. But overall enjoyed 🥰

Hi everyone!

So I just wanted to have a quick little discussion about this book. I‘m enjoying it so far but my only question is why is this book in the YA category? I'm an adult and I'm not a prude or anything but in my opinion, it's a little too explicit to be categorized as YA. (Then again I grew up reading Twilight & Harry Potter etc.) Any opinions would be great! Would love to discuss it. 🌹

kplovesbooks I literally have no idea why it's labeled as YA. I agree with you. And while the series itself gets way more interesting as it goes, the sex gets more graphic. 🤷 4mo
Anya91 @kplovesbooks I‘ve been googling the question because I‘m kind short confused. Like I finished chapter 22 last night and in my head I was like what is happening. 4mo

3.5⭐️ I finally gave in and had to see what all the hype was about. I enjoyed it but didn‘t love it. Had a hard time getting into the first half of the book but I did like the world building. The ending definitely picked up and kept me interested enough to pick up book number two. Hoping it just keeps getting better. Also, so glad my library had this cover. The one with the faceless girl on the front really bugs me. Anyone else agree?

KateReadsYA I definitely like these covers so much more. Book 2 was my favorite read this year so far. I hope you enjoy it more than book 1! I was obsessed with this series after book 2 🤩 5mo
