Review: A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES by Sarah J. Maas


Rating: 4/5 stars

This book has been on my list for a while, but I picked it up right when I did for the book club with my coworkers. 

I didn't love Maas's writing style in the Throne of Glass series, which I still haven't finished reading yet, but I ended up enjoying her writing style a lot more in A Court of Thorns and Roses

I like Feyre as a protagonist. I never had an opinion about Lucien and Tamlin because I had heard so much before starting this series about Rhysand, who I knew was the main love interest, so I was just waiting for him to appear. Well it isn't until over halfway into the book that he shows up! And then we have a love triangle (square?), so I should have been paying better attention to the characterization of Tamlin and Lucien from the beginning. 

I did like Tamlin, but I heard that he becomes a horrible character in the next book?? I have no idea what's going to happen but I'm very curious because I think he's such a good guy. Especially compared to Rhysand, who's a jerk to Feyre. 

I've never been a huge fan of fey stories, and I don't really know why either. But I did enjoy this book more than I expected to, at least, and it wasn't as explicitly romantic as I had heard it was. I'm excited to read the next two books and see what happens.
