A Court of Thorns and Roses
By: Sarah J. Maas
Rating: 4.5 wine glasses
I just finished reading A Court of Thorns and Roses, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t just want Heir of Fire pages all over my wall (Check out my recent blog post on Heir of Fire), no, I want EVERYTHING Sarah J. Maas writes all over my wall. This author has yet to fail in writing a book that doesn’t blow my mind, and honestly I don’t think she ever will. Sarah is easily in my top five favorite authors and she definitely deserves to be there.
So, we all know the plot line for Beauty and the Beast. Big monster takes girl, has to make her fall in love to break the curse, blah blah. Yes, it’s a Classic, but Sarah doesn’t just stick to the basics. She adds so much of her own flare and style that half the time you’re like “ Wait, I thought the beauty and the beast plot line was predictable ”…. NOT.
And the only reason why its not so predictable is because Sarah wrote this bad baby, and Sarah doesn’t follow the rules, which makes her supreme.
But, not only are you thrown into an amazing plot, the characters and world building are so freaking on point you’ll be lucky not to stab yourself. You are introduced to a whole new world: the faerie world. Sarah has a way of creating a world that is not beautiful in the simple sense, but achingly beautiful. The amount of detail and thought that went into this world is present in every page.
The characters will have you rooting for them in no time, especially Ferye. She is such a strong MC, one that I know I latched onto from the get go of the story. You will swoon for the male leads, even the ones that aren’t even meant to be love interests. The adventure is never ending, and the romance is everything and more.
Make sure to pick this one up; Sarah j. Maas isn’t someone you want to ignore.
A Court of Thorns and Roses will take you for one hell of a ride, and personally I can’t wait to get back on for the next one.
