Court of Thorns and Roses


Sarah J. Maas

  • Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
  •  (May 5, 2015)
  • ISBN-13: 978-1619634442
  • Genre: Fantasy, Fairytale Retelling, NA
  • Pre-Order: Amazon | Barnes & Nobles
  • Synopsis: When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin-one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world. As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin-and his world-forever.


Top 5 reasons I want to read this:
  1. Beautiful Cover: Oh hello stunning cover .. I want to frame this cover, it's so pretty. It matches my blog too. I find all the fantasy book covers fascinating. I like the hardcover more than the paperback cover, which is depressing because I like paperback books more. They're smaller, cheaper, and not as heavy. Fun size!
  2. The premise: This is a fairytale retelling of Beauty & The Beast, which is one of my favorite fairytales. If it's anything like the book Cruel Beauty, I'll love it forever. It's a series though which makes me want to scream :( This will be New Adult, so let' see how it goes.
  3. The Author: I've read the author's previous work before, and she's a wonderful writer.
  4. Impatient: I'm eagerly awaiting for this book to come out, hopefully I can receive an ARC of this or I might just pre-order this soon, I JUST HAVE TO HAVE IT. Just look at that amazing cover and the synopsis. I don't buy physical books anymore because of the review copies I receive, this will be will my first physical book purchase in a year if I do buy it. o.O What a special book. I was going to buy the physical copies of A Wicked Lovely and The Witch Hunter, but I'm so glad I didn't, those books were a fail for me. I should make a post on Top 5 reasons why those books failed for me..
  5. The hype is crazy on Goodreads so far, It looks like it might be a bestseller. I'm quite looking forward to reading this book soon. 

Shukran for reading this! Leave your blog links in the comments & I'll be sure to check them out & drop by :) Stay in tuned pretty creatures..

  5. Great pick! I can't wait to read this either! While I haven't read the Throne of Glass series my friend did and she's obsessed with those books. I think this book is a much better fit for me than Throne of Glass so I hope it's as amazing as they say.

  8. Oh, a thousand times yes! I haven't gotten to preorder it yet, but I am hoping too soon. Once I reach that point, at least it'll feel we are getting there soon, right? Here is to hoping it is worth all the hype.

  9. <3 Sarah J. Maas! She's probably my favorite writer to come out in the last 5 years, and I adore her TOG series. And this is (from what I've discovered) actually a cross between two fairy tales. There's the Beauty and the Beast story, but also the Scottish legend of Tam Lin (or as in this case Tamlin). I love both stories and I CAN'T WAIT to see how it's all going to blend together! Awesome pick!!

    Here's My WoW!

  24. I actually hate the cover. GASP. I think I may be the only one, but everything about it deters me. If it was Maas or a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, and all I had to go on was the cover, I would not pick it up. There's just something about it that completely puts me off D:

    But even so, I am SUPER excited to read it. It sounds so badass, and totally awesome - and we can expect it to deliver since it is written by Sarah J. Maas! And yes, everything I have been hearing has been positive, which is a good thing :D

    Hopefully we both like this when we get around to it, Benish!
