A Court of Thorns and Roses.....A Song of Ice and Fire. Come on. This book can stand on its own without publishers desperately trying to steal from bigger fantasy series. It's embarrassing and the author deserves better.

The Beauty & the Beast? Well, duh, of course I know it.
I love the original story & as Disney re-tellings go, this is my favorite (Specially when they dance!!)

& Sarah Mass is writing a retelling about it(!) *insert all kinds of fandom here*

But, erm..., Tamlin?
East of the Sun, West of the Moon?

Why, yes, of course I checked those two already, since I loved Throne of Glass & love The Beauty & the Beast, I want my body to be ready for whatever this book may contain, even if it wi...more

I wasn't a huge fan of Throne of Glass because Celeana didn't show any assassin skills whatsoever and was far too concerned with her own beauty, but even if Maas writes Feyre the exact same way I think I could like this.

Holy Muffins this sounds REALLY interesting! I have to read this! I mean there are Fey in this!!!!!!!!!! And it's part Beauty in the Beast retelling? AWESOME

I need more of Sarah J Maas's writing in my life. 2015 will be a happy year for dual releases of ToG and this...

Also can we just take a look at the genres and blurb... Fantasy. Fairytale Re-telling. Beauty and the Beast. East of the Sun, West of the Moon.

My goodness. How is it possible for a book to sounds this good?!

Edit: 20/02/2014 still can't wait.. the need I feel for this book and the rest of the TOG series is on a whole other level compared to most other books.

The premise sounds interesting, even though the summary sounds cliche at the same time. But Throne of Glass also had a cliche summary, and i would sell my soul to get all of those books in my hands rightthismoment.

Oh my cod. All three of my favorite fairy tales retold in ONE BOOK. This is either going to be amazing or suck.

(All three fairy tales are themselves different retellings of the myth of Cupid and Psyche though..)

Oooooh! Another retelling of East of the Sun, West of the Moon! Yay! *does happy dance*

Is it just me or does it seem like there have been a lot of retellings of this particular fairy tale lately?

Sarah J. Maas lives in Southern California, and over the years, she has developed an unhealthy appreciation for Disney movies and bad pop music. She adores fairy tales and ballet, drinks too much coffee, and watches absolutely rubbish TV shows. When she's not busy writing YA fantasy novels, she can be found exploring the California coastline.

Her debut YA epic fantasy novel, THRONE OF GLASS, will b...more
