Welcome to my book review of “A Court of Thorns and Roses” by Sarah J. Maas.


A Court of Thorns and Roses” was a wonderful retelling of Beauty and The Beast. Feyre is the youngest sister of three. Her mother passed away years ago and her father doesn’t help anymore. She promised her mother on her death bed that she’d take care of her family. Now she’s forced to hunt in the dangerous woods. If she goes too far, more than just animals may prowl. One day, Feyre strayed too far because she, as always, needed to feed her family. She found a large wolf and an innocent deer. She had a gut feeling it was a fae. She had an ash arrow. She killed the beast after she watched it kill the poor, innocent deer. Next thing she knows, Tamlin, another fae, is breaking through her door and demanding her life for the life of the fae she killed … or she can come and live with him.


“A Court of Thorns and Roses” definitely gets a 5 star rating. Sarah J. Maas is such a wonderful author. This is the first book I’ve read written by her but I have heard amazing reviews and comments about everything she’s written. The retelling was done beautifully. There was contrast in the characters but aspects of the original “Beauty and the Beast” was still underlying. The flow of the book made me want to continue and never stop. Only downside is that this is the first book in the trilogy and book three isn’t out until May of 2017!




Please let me know your own thoughts on “A Court of Thorns and Roses” just make sure you be respectful to others and mark it with “SPOILERS” first. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend reading the book. Sarah J. Maas is an amazing author.


In the meantime, keep calm and stay epic,


  • This book has been on my TBR list all year, your review has pushed it to the top of my 2017 reading list!

    • I absolutely LOVE this book … and I have finished the second book, it’s review will be up soon. If it helps you read it sooner … it actually is better than the first in my opinion. 😉

      According to goodreads, this will also be a six book series (just like Sarah J Maas’s Throne of Glass series), I’m so excited!
