My Thoughts: Ok, Seriously A Court Of Thorns And Roses was awesome!! Capital AWESOME! I fell in love with it from the very first page and couldn’t get enough the whole entire book.
We are introduced to Feyre who promised her mother long ago she’d take care of her two sisters and father. She’s done whatever needs to be done to keep them warm, clothed, and fed. Things are really hard for the family but she goes out hunting even when its freezing so they will have food. She sells what she can to buy her sisters what they need. Feyre was an amazing character. She has such a big heart but is also very tough.
Feyre ends up doing something she shouldn’t have done and ends up owing a powerful faerie quite the debt. Gosh, I don’t even want to write very much because I don’t want to give away any spoilers! I feel like this one needs to be experienced by YOU, YOU need to cry, to laugh, to be joyed, to be sad, you name the emotion, you will feel it.
I just loved it. I loved the plot, I loved the world building, I loved the characters.
Lets talk about the characters for a minute. There is Lucien. Oh Lucien how you angered me at times but then redeemed yourself and made me laugh. I loved to despise you.
And then there was Tamlin. Oh, my sweet Tamlin. At first, I wasn’t so sure about him. I didn’t know if I would feel those love feelings but I definitely did. And when I did, I fell desperately madly in love with him. If he was real, OH MY GOSH! I loved him. I loved him so much. I loved his personality and the way Feyre described him, YUMMY.
And than Rhys, I won’t even say much about him, but I even liked him!
I really enjoyed the first part of this one, but then once I hit the second part it got even more interesting and I wanted to cry so bad. I just wanted things to be perfect. It just got better with each page.
I also want to mention all the extra side characters but I won’t. There were so many that made this story more interesting. And I loved how Feyre wouldn’t give up. She was so stubborn, yet so smart!
I could probably write a whole book just about this book but I’ll stop here!
All I can really say about A Court Of Thorns And Roses is that I FREAKING LOVED IT!
Overall: Oh Tamlin, best faerie boyfriend ever! I love you! This is my first read of 2015 and I hope the rest of the year is as good as this one! Loved it! Probably going to be one of my favorite reads of the whole year! I highly recommend you pick this one up as soon as you can!!!! As for the next one in the series, I can’t wait! I need to know where this story will go!
Cover: I love it too! I think it fits perfectly! It would make me pick it up instantly!
