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.

This was a fun read - I liked the beauty and the beast type story and the world Maas created. The writing was a bit uneven, and Feyre as a character was...annoying at times, but I am still looking forward to what the next books bring. I wanted more from this book, it felt like there could be so much more - but what was there was a good read.

I don‘t suppose anyone can help me with my holiday shopping?

I‘m buying for a serious Shakespearian type, who likes a bit of escapism for her Jólabókaflóð reading. Sarah J Maas is the biggest success so far (she went straight out & bought the rest of the series). Rivers of London also went down well. Unfortunately they‘re not really my genres (I haven‘t read SJM at all ?)- I‘m not sure which way to go next. Any suggestions gratefully received!

Kalalalatja It is a bot different, but I would recommend Laini Taylor, especially the tagged (first in a trilogy). I loved it, and the writing is just beautiful 👌 12h
RachelO @Kalalalatja Thank you - that‘s a good idea, and one I have actually read! I need to go back to the others in the series- thanks! 11h
RachelO @Kimberlone Aah! Thank you - that might be a good option, I‘ve a nagging suspicion I may have seen Laini Taylor on her shelves already, but I‘ve never spotted these. Thanks! 11h

I bailed on Throne of Glass. I never thought I would try Maas again, but my book club convinced me to.
I will admit Feyre was a good character to follow. She was independent and willing to do what she had to in order to survive. But the amount of filler in this book frustrated me. There was so much potential and Feyre spends days doing nothing in every situation. I'll give it one more book before giving up.

I‘ve completed just a little over 3 hours for this months #24B4Monday readathon. Most of that has been the audiobook for ACOTAR. I don‘t normally read fantasy, but I have to say I‘m really enjoying it so far. #readathon

OKAY. So unpacking my feelings on this one leaves me in a weird place. 😂 I don't typically read fantasy or romance. I do, however, do magic and love. Even though ACOTAR is over 400 pages, it's a quick read. I am invested in the characters and the story unfolding, BUT I also see a parallel to the Twilight series and feel silly at 33 for vibing into this book like I did. I'm ready to see where Feyre's journey takes her in the future. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

sprainedbrain Don‘t feel silly... I loved it at 41. 😂 Also, book 2 is where it took off for me! 🔥🔥🔥 4w
nichollinlove My SIL handed me book two tonight! I'm tempted to start it and continue to get nothing done this week 😂 4w
CareBear 💯 @sprainedbrain book 2 🔥 🔥 it‘ll completely change your mind about the twilight vibe. 3w

Maybe I changed my rating. Who knows. Still, this book remains one of my favorites, even if it‘s my third time reading it. Even if I‘ll forever be #TeamRhys, and forever angry with a certain *you-know-who*, this book is still enchanting and lovely and just....ahhhhh. Feyre, my queen, I hope to see you and your sisters in any upcoming SJM books set in Prythian.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ By chapter 2, I was hooked. Maas knows how to write the books I want to read. There is magic. There are twists & turns. There is strength from unlikely places & side characters that I just *know* will be playing a bigger part in books to come. I am so excited to read book 2!

I could not get into this book. I got about halfway and I was completely over it. I loved the beginning couple of chapters but after that it went downhill. As much as I wanted to love it (and I really did) I couldn‘t.

5⭐️—- i love this book I haven‘t had this kind of feeling after a book in a little while i want more. I loved the main character usually in young adult fantasies i cringe at the main character but I honestly loved her and he arc and it was a great opening novel leads way to multiple stories and i felt that the story would continue which is good for a series opener

I did not expect to like this, honestly. I kept hearing about the series, and kept thinking it was not for me. I ended up loving it and ordering the rest of the books. I had intended to put the book in my classroom library, but there are some steamy scenes that I think might be .... too steamy? Do other high school teachers have this in their classrooms?

rachelm I thought the same when I read it! I liked book two better— plot thickens quite a bit 2mo

This book took me almost 2 months to finish....

I pushed through and I finished! I think I didn't overly enjoy this book because it took me so long to read it. My mom and neighbor loved the books that are out and thats why I forced myself to finish a book I wasn't necessarily enjoying. I haven't decided if I am going to start the second book yet or not.
- Maybe finish later...

⭐⭐⭐

The pacing was a little off for me. At times I couldn't put it down, and others I couldn't pick it up. Overall it was enjoyable enough for me to want to read the rest of the series but I can't give it more than 3 stars.

OMG this book was:🔥 It became one of my fave reads this entire year. I‘ve read ahead a bit at this point and this is one of those series that you just literally LIVE in while you‘re reading it ♥️ Well written,fun characters and such natural world building that it feels real. Starts slow, but once it warms up it never lets go!! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️/5

HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain I literally BOUGHT this based on your review alone!! Of course I‘d heard of it, but when you raved about it, I KNEW I would love it!!! #BookSister ♥️ and btw you were soo right, the 2nd book is even HOTTER!! 🔥😍not sure how that‘s even possible! But between Rhys constantly TEASING her, finding out more about his character and the beautiful night court setting, I was in LOVE!!!! (edited) 3mo
sprainedbrain YES!!! I thought I loved Tam, and then omg Rhys. 😍😍😍😍 we are definitely #booksisters 😂 3mo
HOTPock3tt Totally agree!! I loved Tam at first... I thought they were sexy together. I was kind of sad when it looked like they wouldn‘t be together and then RHYS happened!!!! 😱♥️🎉 his whole demeanor is so much sexier and the way he constantly teases her omg!! Not to mention his genuine love for her and all he did to win her.😍 I‘m on the 3rd book now and I almost don‘t want it to end 🤣 (edited) 3mo
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain quick question... did the whole thing where she ‘became‘ the book of breathings (I think this happened in ACOMAF) remind you of the all souls trilogy? Even though she only merged the books for a second... her becoming the book and earlier becoming one of the most powerful fae around reminded me of it too since Diana was such a powerful witch 🤔 Matthew is NO Rhysand though 🤣 he is too dark and brooding lol 3mo
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt yes, it did put me in mind of All Souls! And I think All Souls came first... but you are absolutely right. There is no comparing Matthew and Rhys. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 3mo

This #bookhaul post was from 3 years ago, so it took a lot of scrolling. 😂 And it also features my favorite jerk cat (RIP sweet baby boy #kingcyress 😭). But out of these 10, I read 6, bailed on 1, and still haven‘t read 3 of them. However, out of the 6 read, I only really loved one of them (tagged here, not the original), so not a hugely successful book haul from June 2016? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Thanks for a trip down memory lane, @Lcsmcat! #bookhaulchallenge
