I love this book
Ugh, after that awesome trilogy this book was a letdown. It was okay, but I'm not sure what it's purpose was other than spending more time in this universe and getting some backstory. It was a good read for the Christmas season, but not one I'm dying to read again like the other books.
This book accomplished two things for Maas‘s work: 1. It was a set up for the books that are continuing the series, giving the side characters starring roles. And 2. It showed how all the characters were coping with the trauma of everything they had gone through. I‘ve never read an “after the brutal battle & seemingly happy ending” book before, and the way Maas handled the guilt, sadness, relief, emptiness, etc. was so interesting to read.
I really enjoyed reading this one- not so much because of the plot- but because it provided a good deal of closure for the story and also I saw the sneak peak at another book with Nesta and Cassian apparently taking the lead roles and it sounds so good!
I can‘t wait to finish reading this one. I started it last night and I‘m hooked. I love it when I get to see the characters after the main story is over, and even more so I love the way in which Maas went about creating a nostalgic moment around a holiday season that readers can relate to. It‘s a heart warming sense of closure ❤️
Yikes!! 😅 Well I guess this would be considered a short novella... but I just felt like the characters acted in ways opposite to their established personalities. The storyline was also quite boring: see below ⬇️ the only thing that saved this from being a pan was probably the memory of the previous three books, and the fact that it was nice to visit this world again... even with a boring storyline 😪
The fourth and most recent book in the series was a breath of fresh, cold air. It was wonderful to see the characters get a chance to relax & enjoy a holiday together. I liked that even though it was a holiday book, it still felt important & vital to both the plot & character growth.
Golden Sunshine: pick a book that made you smile beyond compare.
Today‘s choice might be a bit controversial. Many people didn‘t like this one. This book didn‘t move the plot forward very much, but after the tragic events that took place in the previous books it was nice to see them rest. The friendship and dynamic between the group is what made me smile.
As much as i love reading about the domestic lives of the characters ive grown to love so much, i just felt like this book was a bit pointless. It didnt drive the story anywhere, its contents could have easily been in a larger book. All the same, it was a sweet addition to the others.
Frost and starlight is bugging the hell out me. She keeps changing the POV. The story is good and I‘m enjoying the different characters but there just doesn‘t seem to be any rhyme or reason to the POV switching
Fourth book in this series that I have loved and there is no need for this book, Sarah Maas could have texted all of us and said that the characters are doing well after the war!🤭. This book needs to be the ending of the last book or the beginning of the next....nothing happens here!!!!😤😤😤. I‘m going to write a very convincing letter to get my money back or to get the next installment at a discount!
I know that a lot of people are not huge fans of this book because they don‘t feel it adds a lot to the series. However, I love it. I feel as though it explains backstory to some characters and helps to lead in to what, I‘m assuming, the spin-off series will be about. After reading the finale to the original series this is a cute book with a lighter feel to help relax into the continuing story.
After binging the entire series and having become way too over emotionally invested in my Night Court family, this was the exact book I needed. I know many feel like this didn't really have a plot but I think that was the whole point. It's to show you more about who they are as regular High Fae rather than the warriors they needed to be throughout all three books.

Glad I listened to this series first, I knew how the names and places were pronounced haha. Fast read and I'm looking forward to the next book!
I‘ve listened to all these, but my library didn‘t have this on audio. I could have borrowed the Kindle version, but this book is so pretty! One of the books I got over the weekend.
I was going to just do a series review for this series. That will be on its way soon. I thought since there is some negativity around this book I would give my thoughts specifically on this one. Many people found that this book really didn‘t expand the plot of the series. That is a fair statement. It did little plot wise but it was so refreshing seeing the characters enjoy a holiday together and just relax after the events of the last book. 5/5
I love these characters and enjoyed the different perspectives in this short novel - more of a novella really. However, I don‘t really understand the point of this story? I guess it could be setting the stage for the next book in the series but it just feels like nothing much happens. Nesta and Elain continue to be the worst sisters possible - I hope their characters are a bit more fleshed out in later books as I cannot stand either of them! 🌌✨
Book 4 of the series. I know not everyone likes this one but I enjoyed it. It was much shorter than the others though. Book 2 will likely always be my favorite however. When I got to the end there was a snippet of the next book. So now I have to wait. I hate waiting. #whyidontreadseries #bookishproblems
“Eons would never be enough for all I wanted to do, see with him. For all I wanted to love him. Night Triumphant—and the Stars Eternal.”
1. Yes I do. I have a partial list of places that I want to travel.
2. Yes! We're getting our passports this year!
3. A big yes on this. It involves me getting over my fear of flying. I can't drive to the U.K. from here.....yet.
4. A Court of Frost and Starlight. I really want to read this, but other books keep getting in the way.
Idk why SJM made Feyre & Rhys such hypocrites. They want to meddle in everyone‘s lives, control how they behave. They want them to be happy, sure, but it has to be their way or else it‘s the wrong way. After my first read, I only noticed how badly they treated Nesta and Tamlin. Now I also see Lucien and Elain weren‘t spared from their judgmental remarks. Rhys even thought he “has” do something about Cassian and Nesta.
Hope they redeem themselves.
I‘m all caught up! This shorter book is meant to be a bridge between the first three books of the series and the ones that will come after, and I thought it was great. I loved seeing the characters adjust to their lives after the events of the former books, and to see the problems that will be addressed in the later books.
Over the past couple of months, I tore through the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas. I love the world she created with Fae and human characters that are diverse and dynamic. I can't wait for the spinoff series so I can visit this world again.
A short teaser of a book, a brief look at life after the war , Rhysand and Feyre are gathering friends and family for Winter Solstice. I love the dedication “ To the readers who look up at the stars and wish “. Some warm happy moments along with some foreshadowing of troubles to come- a yummy little bonbon of a book.
