Review for A Court of Thorns and Roses

Read the rest of the review on Bibliodaze.


I haven’t enjoyed a book this much since I read Shadowfever over a year ago. This may be due to the fact that I haven’t read anything other than sappy HEA romances, but I enjoy deluding myself into believing that it was the beautiful writing, characters I became emotionally invested in, and a stunning plot.


I read  Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass and skimmed over the rest of the series. It was decently written, but didn’t have much to stand out from the rest of the Young Adult world. A Court of Thorns and Roses is not like that. ACoTaR is set in a world so complex and different from ours, but Maas succeeds in flawlessly weaving this fascinating realm. Her writing is marvelous, instantaneously transporting a reader into a world of beauty and terror so acute it’ll haunt your dreams for weeks to come.
