A Court of Thorns and Roses audiobook Reviews:
1/I LOVED this book! I read it in two days and immediately bought the next one in the series. I read it almost as another take on the Beauty and The Beast story.
2/”Don’t feel bad for one moment about doing what brings you joy.”
A Court of Thorns and Roses by @therealsjmaas
This was the first book I picked up as a recommendation from bookstagram, and it started me down a whole new rabbithole.
I know this series divides readers, some of whom love it, and some of whom feel that it is overhyped. I am firmly in the former camp. Being my first SJM series, I was amazed by the depth of emotions evoked, the relationships explored, and the incredible world building that occurs. While I devoured all of Nora Roberts’ fantasy novels, this was completely new to me, and I loved it.
Feyre is a strong female who is willing to do anything that she has to, to help her family, even what is forbidden. Her sisters, especially Nesta, annoy me by just letting Feyre support the family. I love how they and the other characters develope over the series, how we see more and more of their internal battles and insecurities. Sarah is brilliant with the weaving of her stories, especially as you explore her other series and you marvel at how these cross the different worlds to add that little extra that takes a story from good to jawdroppingly great and leave you in awe of her thought process.
If you have been debating whether or not to start this series, take this as your sign to do so immediately. Do beware, though, that you should get all of these books before starting or, at the very least, the first 3 since you will need to know what happens next with the cliffhangers that they end on.
3/Honestly, this book didn’t catch me in the beginning but I’m glad I still read several chapters in. It’s been a long time since something has completely captivated my attention. An amazing book and would definitely recommend to others.
