“A Court of Wings and Ruin” by Sarah J. Maas Review:

This is my first Sarah J Maas book that I’ve given less than 5 stars to and honestly I am just completely devastated right now. I tried to drag ACOWAR out as long as I could– I didn’t start it for weeks after it came out, I avoided spoilers as much as humanly possible and I didn’t read a single early released quote. I was so freaking excited for this book to come out. I have no words to describe the emotions and heartache I felt after A Court of Mist and Fury, and I had waited over a year for A Court of Wings and Ruin. I didn’t want to start it because I didn’t want my favorite book series of all time to end. I was scared for the characters I had grown to love, scared to face a world where I wouldn’t have another Prynthian adventure to look forward to year after year. The one thing I wasn’t scared of was being disappointed.

But I was. I was horribly, immensely disappointed.

“A Court of Mist and Fury” by Sarah J. Maas Review:

“I will say this once– and a only once. You can be a pawn, be someone’s reward, and spend the rest of your immortal life bowing and scraping and pretending you’re less than him, than Ianthe, than any of us… Or, you’ve got another choice. You can master whatever powers we gave to you, and make it count. You can play a role in this war. Because war is coming one way or another, and do not try to delude yourself that any of the Fae will give a shit about your family across the wall when our whole territory is likely to be come a charnel house.”

“A Court of Thorns and Roses” by Sarah J. Maas Review:

“Don’t feel bad for one moment about doing what brings you joy.”

Honestly, the thought of writing this review was really daunting. A Court of Thorns and Roses is one of my favorite books of all time, and the ACOTAR series is my favorite series of all time aside from Harry Potter. This book inspired me in all ways, especially in regards to my own book. I read Sarah J. Maas’ books when I was going through a hard time in high school and was suffering from anxiety and depression. I even took ACOTAR with me to my college orientation to calm the anxiety I was feeling. Basically I owe these books and this gorgeous author a whole lot and I wanted to write a review that truly did it justice.
