Happy release date! It’s finally here! The release of Sarah J. Maas’ newest book and series- A Court of Thorns and Roses!
I’ve already given my brief review on the blog here and my goodreads review here but I wanted to make a short little post celebrating the badassery that is this book and do my best to convince you all to get on this ship immediately.
First things first: This book right here is not only YA High Fantasy of the highest degree, it is also the retelling of my two favorite fairy tales, Beauty and the Beast and East of the Sun, West of the Moon. How much do I love them you ask? Well i’ve got a Beauty and the Beast tattoo that will hopefully be joined by an EotS, WotM tattoo next summer! I LOVE THEM. I only watched The Polar Bear King over a million times as a small child.
Not only do I love the source material but I love the way Maas builds worlds. I love that Feyre is different from her other badass female lead from Throne of Glass, Aelin, and I love the relationship! I love the real, complicated, actually emotional relationship!
Basically if you like retold fairy tales, YA High Fantasy, or just AMAZING writing, you should pick this up right now from your local book seller. Or from Amazon should you live in a soulless town without bookstores.
Until next time,
