Book Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Title: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas

Goodreads Summary:

Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear in the third volume of the #1 New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s manoeuvrings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit – and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords – and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

Review: O.M.G!!!! This book had me going through so many emotions while reading it. I was literally laughing, crying, shaking my head and saying WTF! I know I have said this before but seriously where have these books been all my life. I am kicking myself for not reading them sooner. Feyre has come so far throughout these books and I love being able to go on the journey with her and see he become stronger and more sure of herself. Sarah really knows how to turn the table with her characters. She has you loving them in one book and then in the next she has you hating them. These books so far just have me hooked and wanting more. I seriously recommend these books. I give this book like the others a huge five out of five.

Book Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

 

Title: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Goodreads Summary:

Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

Review: I know I said this in my review of the first book A Court of Thorns and Roses but seriously where have these books been all my life! I try not to judge a book by the hype that is around it and I think that is why I waited so long to read them. These books so far are amazing! It has been a long time since I have enjoyed a book this month. The characters are so beautifully written that you can easily see their growth throughout the story. I enjoy reading about Feyre because even though she is strong and willing to do anything for anyone but on the inside she is broken and in need of help. I don’t want to say to much because I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone. I give this book a huge massive five out of five and would recommend these books to anyone and everyone.

Book Review: Royals by Rachel Hawkins

 

Title: Royals by Rachel Hawkins

Goodreads Summary:

Daisy Winters, average sixteen-year-old, has no desire to live in the spotlight – but it’s not up to you when your perfect older sister is engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland. The crown – and the intriguing Miles – might be trying to make Daisy into a lady, but she may have to rewrite the royal rulebook.

Review: When I read the summary for this book I was excited to read it. It sounded really good and a nice lead up to the royal wedding. Once I got reading it though it wasn’t as interesting as I was hoping it would be. It was a nice read over all. I did enjoy the characters especially Daisy and Miles. It didn’t really leave me wanting more when ever I had to put it down. I give this book a three and a half out of five stars.

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

Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Goodreads Summary:

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Review: Where has this book been all my life! I have heard a lot about Sarah J. Maas and her books and was nervous to read her books because sometime books don’t live up the hype that is around them. This book definitely lives up to the hype. I loved the characters and how they develop over the story and really hope it continues throughout the series. I really enjoyed reading in Feyre’s point of view and how she is able to handle herself as well as take care of the people she loves. She is able to stand up for herself even if it isn’t the smartest thing to do. Then moving on to reading about Tamlin and learning about him piece by piece as he starts opening up instead of being all mysterious.This whole book had me laughing,crying and everything in between. It has been a while since I have read a book that has had me doing that. I give this book a HUGE five out of five stars and would highly recommend it to anyone.
