Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses (ACOTAR #1)
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA 
Pages: 419

My Rating:

Feyre's survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price... Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre's presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

Ok, don't hate me but I hated Sarah's other series, (Throne of Glass, I think), and I was afraid to start A Court of Thorns and Roses for that same reason. BOY AM I KICKING MY OWN ASS FOR NOT HAVING PICKED IT UP EARLIER! ❤️ I freaking loved it! I devoured it and loved every second of it. The story, the writing, the character development, I loved it all.

So I'm totally team Tamlin right now, but I did the HUGE mistake of looking on goodreads. Why is everyone going crazy about Rhysand? He was a complete dick! People commented, "If it weren't for Rhy, Feyre wouldn't have made it out of the mountain alive!"... The f? 😂Did we read the same book? Rhysand was the reason she was there in the first place! He went crying to Amarantha that Tamlin was with Clare. Even after Tamlin begged him not to say anything. I hate him! 😒 My pal Ashley says I need to start book 2 asap as all will become clear... haha!

Either way, a great first book to begin the series. Lucky for me, book two is on my Nook.
