It was just ok 🤷🏻♀️ I could take it or leave it.
I liked how cozy this was to read, and I liked characters. Mostly. Some of them are annoying but that's also humane.
This was really light read, I enjoyed this more than previous ones. Usually there is so many unnecessary pages but his was short - so even though there wasn't that much happening in this one either it was so much more bearable.

Smaller in comparison. I almost felt guilty reading it as I'm used to 600+ pages. But this Novella is only a teaser and a close to last three.
It teases Cassian and Nesta a bit which I am intrigued to see how that dynamic will unfold.
Part of me doesn't like the splashing of wealth in this book. They build an estate and suddenly she's a business all because it can be bought just annoys me a bit, especially as she was in poverty before 😅
Ah, the Christmas special. I keep calling it that, but that‘s really what it is. This installment catches us up on what the characters have been up to in the aftermaths of Hybern as they prepare for the Winter Solstice. You definitely don‘t have to read this one because nothing really happens, but it does set Silver Flames up nicely. I enjoyed the light-heartedness after such a heavy setting in ACOWAR. Can‘t wait for Nessian‘s story! 😍
Weekend Read ☀️
Waiting for IKEA to open, looking for my first bookshelf to set up! Sooo excited. Hope you all have a Fantastic Weekend. 🌈
I read this book a few years ago so decided to listen to the audiobook on Hoopla. This was the last book I read in the series. It‘s during Winter Solstice- the war is over the gang is together again for the holidays. I didn‘t enjoy it as much as the earlier books, it feels like a placeholder. But the audiobook is well done and it was a good refresher as I bought the next book in the series. I wish there was something between a pick and so-so
Literally the only thing that happens in this book is a family Winter Solstice celebration. Preparing, buying presents, dealing with holiday family drama, and eating and drinking. I would have liked to see more background and insight into the characters we know less about. Nothing new is revealed about anyone. I kept reading, thinking more would happen. It doesn't, but it's a quick read.
Bk2 of March is done. While this was a sweet feel good novella from the Night Court, it didn‘t really add much to the story, just Feyre painting, Nesta bitching & Rhys buying stuff. Cute but 🤷🏻♀️ #BookspinBingo #PennyPerPage #SeriesRead2022 #FinishingTheSeries

I've been rereading this series to prep for the most recent book (since I tried starting it and couldn't remember the main events being referenced...)
I actually enjoyed this far more as a reread; I think because my expectations were very low. The first time around I was excited for it, then disappointed when it felt like just a money-grab filler. It's still that, but at least I wasn't expecting anything that furthered the plotline
Having read the 3 books before, which were absolutely fantastic. Action packed and page turning which meant that I couldn‘t put the book down! I am sorry to say that I‘m rather disappointed with a Court of Frost and Starlight. I found it very difficult to stay engaged and found that nothing really happened. I would say this book is a filler and don‘t have to read it.
4.5⭐️ after surviving the battle, Feyre, Rhys and the rest of the crew and get together to celebrate the holidays. Still having to deal with day-to-day struggles, the story actually get to see how the crew working towards healing from all they have lost. I enjoyed it. It was a light hearted and sweet. However, I don‘t think I would‘ve liked it so much if I didn‘t know the backstory. As a standalone, this would‘ve been a far lower rating for me.
Didn‘t have a very productive #24in4
Ended up being a much busier weekend and a sick dog to worry about, managed to finish The Ladies of The Secret Circus and read A Court of Frost and Starlight which was a short book with not a lot of the excitement like the others had,but fun nonetheless!
So my grand total was 51/2 hours but that‘s ok better then nothing!
It was a good addition as it explores the characters further and highlights the effects the war had on them without brushing it away like it was a mild inconvenience. I also liked the way Feyre finally got to use her painting skills and embrace that more peaceful part of herself.
However, it can easily be skipped. It's nothing particularly special and there are no grand revelations, just a nice story.
