Book Review – A Court of Thorns and Roses

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


From the moment that readers are introduced to Feyre, we are immediately immersed and enmeshed with a strong female lead who has been shouldering the burdens of the world on her shoulders. I sympathized with Feyre, and really came to root for her as she struggled to make sense of the Fairy world that she unknowingly threw herself into.

The characters don’t quite have perfect chemistry, but now that I am well into the second book I believe that that must have been purposeful. I’m glad that I waited to read the second book to rate the first one, because I think it better informs what the first book actually is intended to be for the reader. Because a Court of Thorns and Roses was so reminiscent of stories like beauty and the beast, I really found myself wanting to love the love story. There were a few plot twists that didn’t quite make sense but against the backdrop of the second book, I’m sure in the series some of these unexplained twists will come to light. I would not call this book a ‘cozy’ love story at all, but it’s very well written, and the characters extremely believable and relatable.

Overall rating: 🖤🖤🖤.🖤
Romance rating: flexible 16+
