A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

The cover looks a bit ‘plastic.’ where the cover of A Court of Thorns of Roses was badass, the one for A Court of Mist and Fury just doesn’t appeal as much to me. I do like the colors, but the woman on the cover and the dress just seem a bit fake to me. I had a few theories after finishing the first book, mostly about what happened between Feyre and Rhys at the end of A Court of Thorns and Roses and I can’t wait to find out if I was aiming in the right direction or not. After the first few chapters: Nope, this is not Young Adult (refers to a very  steamy *cough* and detailed *cough* scene) H O L Y  S H I…

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

Queen of Shadows what have you done to me?! I once again waited reading this… I’d preordered it (duh) and when it arrived I read the first chapter, which broke my heart, and didn’t pick it up until 3 months later. I know, stupid silly me. Because this book was brilliant! It was perfect. I didn’t think I could love the characters even more, but I DO. MUST HAVE THE NEXT BOOK, NOW! Wrapping my head around certain plot changes I’ll jump right in, there are a LOT of things happening in Queen of Shadows and I’m going to keep it vague because I don’t want to spoil anything for you. What I do think is quite obvious is that things are changing, in a big way. I…

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

Holy shit, this book is a masterpiece, absolutely and utterly mind-blowing. I love what Sarah did with the original Beauty and the Beast story. I usually don’t really know what to do with Fae stories, but the combination of the Fae with the Beauty and the Beast story worked perfectly. It made the story creative and original, and the plot complex. The characters were complex and had a lot of depth! Feyre is a great character. She was the underdog amidst the Fae, but that didn’t stop her from fighting what she believed in. She’s something fierce. In a way she reminds me of Celaena, they definitely have some traits in common, but that’s where it ends, because Feyre is definitely a character on her own.…

Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas | Book Review

You have no idea how long I have been waiting for this book. Or maybe you do, because you’ve probably been waiting just as long, and just as impatiently. So when this book finally arrived on my doormat -two weeks after publication date (I’d pre-ordered it a long time ago, so the late arrival was so NOT cool)! My reaction must have been something like this: As you all know, I am slightly OBSESSED with this series. And as I am still reeling after reading Heir of Fire, I am warning you in advance that this review will -probably- contain some fangirling. In this book we learn even more about Celaena. We learn more about het backstory and get to see a whole different side of her. We ALL know Celaena…
