A Court of Thorns and Roses
Genre: Young Adult
Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.
“Cauldron save me. Mother hold me. Guide me to you.
Let me pass through the gates. Let me smell that immortal land of milk and honey.
Let me fear no evil. Let me feel no pain. Let me enter eternity.”
Holy fucking shit! I’ve been enchanted by this brilliant work of art.
This is why I love the Young Adult genre! Not only was this book an escape from the daily grind; it was an amazing adventure!
Here’s the breakdown:

What I loved:
ERRRYYYTHING!!! This book is fracking amazing! I’m completely enchanted by the characters and story! It’s a perfect mix of high fantasy, YA, and romance. I felt the world building was slightly lacking for this genre, but the imaginative story is brilliant none the less.
Lucien and Tam Lin are Everything, but Rhysand is Bae! I adore characters who aren’t what they seem. When I can’t quite figure out character’s motivations, it only serves to intrigue me more. As soon as this book ended I downloaded book 2.
