A Court of Thorns and Roses | #thatancienttbrbook

What up readers, it’s SUNDAY! And I have to leave for camp today…(when your brain doesn’t know whether you should be happy or sad about something) So yep I’ll be off the grid until next weekend. Hopefully not COMPLETELY though, because I’ll have my phone with the handy dandy glitch central WordPress app, and if it’s not acting up on me I’ll try to answer comments and all that. ALSO, when I went to the Barnes and Noble website yesterday this happened: EEKKKKK SO EXCITED.

“A gorgeously written tale as lush and romantic as it is ferocious. Absolutely spellbinding.” —Alexandra Bracken, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author





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. (synopsis from barnesandnoble.com)




You guys have no idea how long this has been on my tbr. I bought it a month ago, but JUST got around to reading it this week and IT MET ALL MY EXPECTATIONS PERFECTLY AND I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF THAT I READ IT AT LAST.


Of course though, from the billion reviews on this series I’ve skimmed over blogging, I KNOW that Feyre ends up with Rhysand. (Still gonna pronounce it Rye-sand even though Sarah J. Mass clearly stated it is Ree-sand in the pronunciation guide.)

So the entire book the TEMPTATION to ship #feylin was just staring me in the face, but I was like: no I’m going to learn to love and accept Rhysand. And you’re probably thinking: UM SARAH THAT’S UNNECESSARY THE AUTHOR MAKES YOU LIKE HIM. But the thing is, that NEVER WORKS ON ME. I always get stuck on the first boyfriend they introduce and I just CAN NOT MOVE ON. Like for example The Hunger Games…GALE WAS MEANT TO FALL IN LOVE WITH KATNISS BECAUSE IF HER NAME WASN’T PICKED SHE NEVER WOULD’VE GIVEN A CRAP FOR PEETA. It was simply not meant to be because CLEARLY if you’ve been living in the same 100 yards or whatever for your entire life and never cared or acknowledged each other than NO. JUST NO. WHY WOULD THAT HAPPEN.

Okay moving away from The Hunger Games now, (so the Team Peeta fans don’t come after me) I was literally just so distraught that Feyre isn’t going to marry Tamlin and live their eternal happily ever after. *SOB*


Okay what’s pretty sad is that all I’ve talked about is the romance, but to be honest I AM FORESEEING A KILLER LOVE TRIANGLE. AND MANY HEARTS WILL BE BROKEN. (so mine and Tamlin’s) Anyways, overall I saw no major flaws in the writing or plot line, and I can’t WAIT to buy the next book. (it’s not at my library *ultra frowny face*) And disclaimer…You may also apply that gif to my editing skills. Leaving for camp in 30 MINUTES!!

  1. I loved this review! I really liked Tamlin the first time around but after you finish ACoMAF there is no going back to Tamlin. The second time I read ACOTAR I fell even more in love with Rhysand! I can’t wait to see your review on ACoMAF! Have fun at camp!

  2. I totally pronounce it Ry-sand as well. 😂 Agh, I’m probably not going to read this series! It sounds vaguely interesting but something’s just putting me off. :/ Great review, though, and have fun at camp! 😀

    (Also I would like to point out that whenever there are multiple love interests I am SO SO indecisive??? It’s not fair.)

  3. Fantastic review Sarah and I’m happy it did not disappoint you. I did not think I would love the ACOTAR series as much as A Throne of Glass and yet… Have fun at your camp 😉

  4. It’s amazing that you loved this book!! To be honest our expectations were greater as we already had read and caught up to her Throne of Glass series which is just 😍👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻❤❤ but then we read this with HIGH hopes and don’t get us wrong we love ❤❤❤❤❤ (THE SECOND BOOKK THO 😍❤😎👌🏻) this SERIES – so if this was a standalone novel our rating would’ve been lower but we understood by then (even though it was her second book series) that her first books in a series are just a taste of the awesomeness to come!!

    We too pronounce Rhysand as “Rye-sand” – just imagine screaming REESE…just makes us laugh…sorry SJMaas but if we should remain to love this 😍😍❤❤ character of yours it’s name should sound like PERFECTION!!

    HAVE FUN IN YOUR CAMP THING…and maybe you could perhaps read the fabulousness that is ACOMAF!!😉😉 🤓

  5. YES I’m glad you loved it! But seriously I bet SJM could be the one to change that for you because all of the characters are different in book 2 so it makes sense and I loved tamlin in book 1 but you will see how it changes and Rhys grows on you 🌚😍

  6. I am so glad you’ve finally read this book!!! I absolutely cannot wait until you read ACOMAF because you will finally understand all the fandom memes against Tamlin hahaha I hate love-triangles personally so I dreaded having Rhys come between Tamlin and Feyre (even though Rhys seemed more my type at a glance) but then I read ACOMAF and I was like Tamlin who?? I’m glad you liked this book though!!

    • YES I JUST BOUGHT ACOMAF AT BARNES AND NOBLE TODAY EEEE SO EXCITED! XD Ugh yes same I hate love triangles too. I always get stuck on the first love interest and no matter how hot and amazing the next guy is nope. nope. nope. can not embrace that her first love has been replaced. (lol rhyming)
