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 is my third time reading this book, and I will always love it. I made myself wait two years since my last read through, and I was very excited to finally pick it back up again.
And perhaps the best part is the level-10 anticipation of getting to book two. Which I will begin…immediately.

Saw this box set on sale and Working on my Bday book wish list. Does anyone recommend the series? I haven‘t read any of the books but it sounds interesting. 🙂

Booksarelifeaddict I have never read it but I‘ve heard great things about it! I do have the first book in the series so I might read that soon 1w
wanderinglynn I read book 1 and didn‘t care for it. But I‘m also not a fan of fairytale retellings. It is a really popular series and has over a 4 star rating on GR. 1w
TrishB Not her best series. Throne of Glass series much better. 1w

Loved it. I am not one for fantasy books but this one had a good plot and kept me interested until the end.

Last post from paradise. This one frustrated me for the first half and made up for it somewhat in the second half. I‘m hooked enough to keep reading the series, and interested in seeing how the relationships progress given I already know too much about the later books from posts and reviews.

This will also be the last post with my Voyage - thanks for your 7 years of service, but a white screen of death incident means it‘s time to trade in!

BarbaraBB Paradise indeed 🥰 2w

To say that I enjoyed this book would be a gross understatement. Starting this series is the beginning of a magical journey into a whole new world filled with wonder, delight, tragedy, love, and, of course, darkness.

Feyre is brave, opinionated and definitely an over thinker. I like strong characters that won‘t give up and she‘s the kind of person that will fight for what she wants. It‘s the kind of book that I started to read and at some point couldn‘t stop reading. Hope the second one is as good.

StaceGhost I actually liked the second one better! 2mo

High Fae are the vampires of 2010 and this books delivers. A fantasy of mortal meets immortal, both raised to hate and fear the other, but when one holds the key to lifting a curse... gritty, gorgeous, fierce, fanciful & oh so sensual... I can't wait to read book 2 📚

I finally caved and read this book! It‘s weird though; because this series is so popular and I‘m into book-related things on the internet, I think I know more about the series than I should. I like the characters, their journeys, and the ending of this book, but I also know that things… don‘t stay this way, even though I don‘t know how. Do I just stop here where I like the ending? Or keep going with the rest of the series? Things to ponder.

5feet.of.fury Relatable. I read the 1st 3, and I know some of what happens forward and I‘ve been contemplating just staying here where I‘m happy. I liked the 1st one, loved the 2nd and 3rd though. 3mo
BriannaT @5feet.of.fury I‘ll probably soldier on with reading the books because curiosity will eventually get ahold of me, but maybe not for a little while just to mentally prepare myself lol 3mo
KateReadsYA Ooo girl continue, the happy ending does not truly end here. The real happy ending is wayyyyy better. 3mo

Feyra is brought to the faerie world in consequence of killing one of their own. There she meets Tamlin, who she blooms feelings for. What she finds out is there is a curse on the land from an evil faerie only she can break, but how?

This one was okay. I didn‘t really get the whole hype for it. I liked the romance bits, but other than that it was boring. Not a lot of world building either. I‘ll let you know how the 2nd one goes.

While I was reading this book, I really enjoyed it. It's the start of a great series, in which the second book is one of my all time favorites! Feyre is an interesting character, and I enjoy reading from her perspective. The plot hooks you, though it is a tad predictable. The ending will leave you wanting more, and like I said, the second book certainly delivers. This book, however, does not lend itself easily to re-reading.

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.

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… 5mo

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.

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 ?

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.
