My Friday reading tips this week is A Court Of Thornes and Roses by Sarah J Maas. So glad I finally got the time to read this book that’s been on my TBR list forever, it really lived up to the hype! This is something of a Beauty and the Beast-story, but with added layers and intensity and characters with depth and flaws.
The characters are wonderful and loveable. Feyre is this stubborn, rebellious and to cocky-for-her-own-good girl that you cannot help falling in love with right away, even though you feel like slapping her every now and then for her bad decisions. And Tamlin is so sweet and honorable, you just swoon. But my favorite is probably Lucien, I love his snarkiness and hilarious comments. Rhysand I’m not quite sure what I think about yet, but I’m sure that will crystalize itself onwards.
I love the fantasy world that Sarah J Maas has created. It’s so rich in details and vivid you can really picture all of it.
** Spoiler alert**
I also love the slow build-up of the relationship between Feyre and Tamlin, how the story allows for Feyre to take her to go from fear and hate to slowly fall in love. The only thing I’m not happy about is the spoilers I have not been able to avoid about Feyre and Tamlin not lasting. I seriously cannot understand why at this point, but I certainly will make sure to find out... Starting the next book in this series right now!!!
