message 12: by Susan (new)

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 2188 comments A quick question, for the MC has a hobby I picked A Court of Wings and Ruin because in both the first 2 books Feyre paints...I haven't read this book yet nor have I been spoiled yet but I can only assume that since painting was in the first 2 she would still paint in this book. So will this count for this category?
