I loved the second book of this series more HOWEVER I really enjoyed this one too. It gives off beauty and the beast vibes. Loved it. ( )

This book was the first fantasy I have read and it was a great introductory book. The world building and character development was easy to follow and easy to paint a picture in my mind. I would have like to see more plot based rather than the relationship between Tamlin and Fayre ( )

Unpopular opinion, I know. This is one of the only books I've ever been so frustrated with that I nearly rage quit and had to walk away before resuming. The writing quality is low, but I can overlook that in the face of a captivating story or interesting characters.

Alas, the story, while an interesting interpretation of the Beauty and the Beast fairytale, grew stagnant quickly as the characters seemed to be manufacturing their own drama in a way that I've seen most often in petty acquaintances and petulant celebrities on social media.

After the stagnation it felt obvious that the plot points were added as an afterthought, pulling the characters into the events at the end of the book which surpassed my ability to suspend my disbelief (which is saying something considering my love for fantasy, sci fi, fairy tales, and folklore). There was one sex scene which had some problematic consensual issues, (and yet was also the best demonstration of writing skill?) which were glossed over in favor of posturing. (Which I mean quite literally: the characters seemed to pose dramatically while delivering shallow monologues for the rest of the book.)

As a reader of fantasy and a student of writing craft, reading this book felt insulting in a patronizing sense. It wasn't simply bad; it was actively damaging to popular conceptions of sexuality, resilience, female empowerment, and the tradition of storytelling craft. ( )

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas is a captivating fantasy novel that merges elements of romance and adventure. The intricate world-building and lush descriptions transport readers to a realm filled with magic and danger. The main protagonist, Feyre, undergoes a compelling character development throughout the story, evolving from a strong-willed survivor to a formidable heroine. The dynamic relationships between the characters add depth to the narrative, particularly the blossoming romance between Feyre and Tamlin. However, the pacing of the plot can be uneven at times, with certain sections feeling dragged out or rushed. Additionally, some readers may find the romantic elements to be overly melodramatic. Despite these minor drawbacks, A Court of Thorns and Roses remains an engaging read for fans of fantasy and romance, earning it a solid rating of 4 stars out of 5. ( )

Nineteen-year-old Feyre is her family's primary provider, hunting what few animals she can find in the woods near their home. Her father used to be wealthy, but some bad business decisions have since pushed them into poverty. Out of necessity and a vow to her dying mother, Feyre taught herself how to hunt to keep the family going, but a part of her can't help but resent that her father and sisters don't do much to help.

Feyre kills a wolf during her latest hunt, only to learn that he was a faerie - his enraged friend, Tamlin, bursts into her home and demands that she come live in his home in Prythian, one of the Faerie realms, or die. When she gets to his home, she learns that he and the rest of his court have been cursed - the animal masks they wore at a past masquerade have become their faces. As Feyre adjusts to her new home, she finds herself softening towards Tamlin. However, someone or something that Tamlin refuses to talk about is threatening him and his court, shaking the foundations of Feyre's growing sense of peace and happiness.

Although this isn't YA, I can understand why some folks might mistakenly tag it as such. Especially at the start, I was reminded of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games, although Feyre's relationship with her sisters seemed to be the exact opposite of Katniss' relationship with her sister. The two main characters felt very similar to me, however.

I had some issues with the setup, although various revelations cleared that up later on. My issues and questions may have been part of why I had some trouble getting emotionally invested in Tamlin and Feyre's developing romance, though. Something about it was a bit off-putting, although the only moment that really bugged me was closer to the end, when Feyre plastered herself to Tamlin during an objectively terrible time (seriously, it was such a bad idea that I 100% expected it to be a trap).

Overall, this was a so-so read for me, but I'm curious enough to continue on. Plus, I've heard that the second book is better.
