Book Review of A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

a court of thorns and roses

I first came across this book by scrolling through Pinterest and seeing the fan art associated with it. I kept seeing it again and again on my feed, and eventually, I got curious about who these characters were and how they tied together. This led to me checking the book out at the library, and I’m definitely glad I did!

With story elements from Beauty and the Beast and the Hades and Persephone myth, the book weaves a beautiful tale of love and sacrifice, and it begins to make us question what is real and what is not.

I absolutely love the characters. At first I didn’t like Tamlin at all, but he quickly grew on me. The same goes for Rhysand. He came across as evil and unfeeling, but we find that is anything but true. The ending scene with Rhysand and Feyre piqued my curiosity enough that I’m dying for the next book!

Book Review of Lord Fenton’s Folly by Josi S. Kilpack

book review

I cannot even begin to express how depressed I feel after reading this book. Sure, it’s supposed to be a romance. It’s supposed to be set in the romantic Regency period. BUT wow that was a depressing read. Of course, the book promises that things will get better even before you open the cover. Unfortunately, you’ll find yourself waiting a VERY long time to encounter such promises.

However, I was pleasantly surprised at the emotions this book brought out in me, which isn’t something just any book can do. Four out of five stars!
