To be completely honest, it’s been a few weeks since I’ve finished A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. I have been avoiding writing this review since then. It feels so final to write it! And I really don’t want it to end…
However, it must be done. So, here I am. I’ve finished the published books of ACOTAR series. There is only A Court of Frost and Starlight left, but I’m still waiting for my copy to arrive. I won’t be writing a review for that one (most likely).
“Only you can decide what breaks you, Cursebreaker. Only you.”
Well, where to begin? I love it. The characters are incredible. They have depth and aren’t necessarily likeable all the time. That is something I admire, especially if the writer still manages to make me care for them.
Where to begin? Well, I just finished A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas and my life has significantly improved by it.
In this sequel to A Court of Thorns and Roses, we follow Feyre’s story after the defeat of Amarantha. Feyre had returned to The Spring Court with Tamlin and they are soon to be wed. However, Feyre is anything but well. She is deeply impacted by what she endured Under the Mountain and Tamlin simply doesn’t understand how to help her. Tamlin’s personality showcased it the first part of the book. He is toxic for Feyre and her failing mental and physical health is obvious to everyone but him.
Everything is changed on the wedding day of Feyre and Tamlin, when Rhysand comes and snatches the bride. And so, Feyre must fulfil her end of the bargain and spend one week every month with Rhysand… and in my opinion that is the best thing to have happened to her so far.
It is quite possible I sincerely hate myself… and I mean that in the most loving way. I’ve just finished a first book in a series and I’m hooked. Like seriously hooked. I immediately bought the other books that are published. Oops I did it again… I think I’m in love. Ugh… I’ve forgotten how addictive fantasy books can be.
So… what happened is I finished A Court of Thornes and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. Many have warned me this would happen. And yet, I stupidly believed otherwise. And here we are. I might’ve found my new favourite book series. And I love it. I love that feeling you get when you can anticipate how impactful a book will be. That is such a magical feeling.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas is the first book the series. I suspect there is no need to summarize the plot since I am like always, late to the party. Fashionably late, in my opinion, because I won’t have to wait to read the sequel.
Let’s Get Textual is a romance novel written by Teagan Hunter. The story is told from the perspective of Delia who gets a strange text message. She decides to reply and so her adventure begins. Delia and Zach (the sender of said message) start texting and eventually fall in love.
Weirdly, this is one of the most realistic romance books set in college. The virtual “meet-cute” is definitely something that rarely happens, however, we all have that friend with the weirdest stories. I guess this book is that friend.
I can’t say I loved this book. It was okay. Actually, the perfect word to describe it is mild. The book was mild. I wasn’t bored when I was reading it, but I wasn’t excited to pick it up when the time came. The characters were quite one-dimensional and lacked depth. We didn’t really get to peek beneath the surface. For example, Delia was afraid of quickly getting into a relationship. She said that a few times, but it was never shown. In the moments when I expected her to be hesitant or afraid of the potential relationship with Zach, that simply wasn’t there.
