I really loved this one! 600 plus pages and I was just enthralled the whole way through. I went on a camping trip with this one thinking I would barely put a dent in it. I ended up not wanting to put it down. I only stopped to eat and sleep and found myself dreaming about the story. I read this in 2 days and kind of wish I could wipe my memory just so I could experience it all over again.
I remember thinking A court of Thorns and Roses was beautiful, but I did have a major problem with Tamlin. He irritated me something bad. I do understand why some people are irritated with how he is portrayed in ACOMF compared the ACOTR but, if you think about it he has kind of been this way for a while. He just masked it for his own purposes. He needed a girl to lift the curse, because he was probably lonely, and to save his court. I felt like he was just using Feyre, and was just forcing her into a situation where they could fall in love from the get-go. Ultimately he kidnapped her tricked her into enslavement and tried to seduce her, wherein she fell for him and he fell for her. But remember, he needed this to happen so she could lift the curse. So yes they fell for each other but it was kind of pushed and pre-planned.
Feyre spent 1/3 of the first book going through all of those trials to save Tamlin and basically gave up her humanity for him only for him to in this book to shove her aside and treat her like crap. Cue Ryhsand a mysterious intriguing character that seems to be in the grey area as far as good and evil. At first I was like “No, the author is just making Tam a jerk to give her an out” but then I realized she didn’t really need to, she was just strengthening something that was already there. I had already felt he was so overprotective and controlling almost like Edward. I hated seeing Feyre being used and squelched, she just went through these trials and did all this amazing stuff yet she isn’t allowed out and is being treated like a little porcelain doll. Come on she just defeated the queen, she is awesome. Tamlin you dummy. But then Ryhsand comes along at the perfect time and I’m like yasssss!
The night court sounds amazing and is described so beautifully. I find it interesting how the Night Court responds to Rhys. He had to work for his position whereas Tam was born into it. The way his city looks at and reacts to him is so night and day, pardon the pun, to the spring court. I thought it was great for Feyre to see the contrast and say wait a minute this relationship I was in was not healthy. And while Rhys could have really pushed her into a relationship, he instead lets things happen naturally and gives her space to heal.
At first I was irritated by her being depressed and not taking care of herself, but I understand. Most books just push past the “oh my gosh I murdered someone, and I was in a bad relationship thing” and move straight to the “its okay I have a new cutie I’m so over it” thing. Feyre was given time to mourn and move on, which realistically takes time.
This story is adventure, romance, heartbreak, sexiness (I will never think of paint the same), and so much more. I recommend jumping on this train if you aren’t already.

Madeline is a girl who is allergic to basically everything. She can’t go outside and is forced to spend her days with her mom and her nurse playing made up board games and re-reading books for the 100th time. Everything changes when a parkour loving bundt cake murdering boy moves in next door.
The love aspect of the book was fun and just the right speed in my opinion. Olly is sweet, fun, and considerate. I love his and Maddie’s relationship and how it unfolds. His scenes are just so much fun from the start. Unfortunately he has an abusive father and a broken family, however I felt that the way this was portrayed was very realistic and heart wrenching. Throughout the story Maddy learns about life, love, and just how sweet and cruel the world can be.
I love love loved this book! I read this book in one night and was ready to reread it as soon as I finished. When I got to the ending I ran down the stairs and shoved the book into my mom’s hands and just said, “this, read this.” She looked at me like I was crazy (although she should be used to this behavior by now.”
I was surprised at how much I actually liked this one. I would definitely recommend this one! ...more
