A Court of Thorns & Roses: 5 out of 5 stars

A Court of Thorn & Roses book 1

Book hangover starts…now!

Next time I don’t pick up a Sarah J. Maas book immediately, you have my permission to hit me.


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.


I will say this this took me a little while to get into but this is classic Maas so of course it was brilliant.

There is superb world building and all the characters are incredibly well rounded. I can definitely feel the Beauty and the Beast vibe but I’m really thankful that it didn’t overshadow the story as a whole.

Feyre (best name!) is a strong and sassy wildflower who brings such colour to the story. Her chemistry with Tamlin is electric but it was her interactions with Rhys and Lucien that I found to be really interesting…can’t wait to see how they evolve in the next book.

Speaking of, can it be May 2016 already?!
