Far off places, daring sword fights, a prince in disguise! (See what I did there?) The book I’m holding is a Beauty and the Beast retelling and Belle is one of the ultimate bookworms. ♥️
Reading is power my bookish friends. ✨ Never underestimate the influence and good a book can do. It feeds your curiosity and imagination and breaks down barriers. ✨
#BookReview : #ACourtofThornsAndRoses "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."
Let me just say this. I'm glad I didn't give up on this. The first half is so boring! But then things just got better and better!😀
The sexual tension and romance was toe curling. Thank god i didn't have to worry that it was only going to be "romance". This book and the series in general combines the best elements of a YA fantasy with adult romance! 👍🏼The world building is so marvellous. You can look forward to a more magical and beautiful Faire world.
I was annoyed with the way Feyre and Tamlin were behaving, but then later you come to know why. Loved the relationship between Lucien and Feyre. As the only friend she has in Farie world I loved him! He was my favourite.
I can't say more about Rhys(because spoilers!!🙄), but oh those undercurrents there.. 😍
The action packed ending and when all the puzzle pieces came together, I couldn't get a handle on my feelings guys. Let's just say the ending will make you heart beat like a drum.
Overall guys I would suggest you to stick it out with this book even if you find it boring. Because trust me the upcoming books in this series are just wayyyyy better than the 1st one!
Couldn’t have had a better day exploring Disney World. So much delicious food I’ll have to buy new pants. Disney’s powerful scheme to make a profit off of childhood nostalgia worked its charm on me! I love every minute of it!
