A Court Of Thorns And Roses | Sarah J Mass | Book Review


This book was my first delve into high fantasy. Now, I love this genre so much. I don’t know why Sarah J Mass is unpopular because I absolutely loved this book. Hopefully the next two books in this trilogy will be just as good: I strongly dislike when the prequels are a let down! (Divergent, for example).

This book was a bit slow moving because of all the adjectives and detailed description. Yet I loved ACOTAR for that reason. It was so beautifully written and the characters were interesting too. I thought, at first, that Elian and Nesta were going to be like the ugly stepsisters – especially with Feyre doing so much work for the family. I was glad to find out that they were better than that. Sarah J Mass is great at character development – at least in some areas (I don’t think Wilan had much complexity but I still liked him).


I didn’t know what to expect from this novel and the corny cover threw me off slightly: “She stole a life. Now she must pay, with her heart” It sounded a bit cheesy but I was thrilled! I cannot recommend this book enough to any new fantasy lovers. After Six Of Crows, I didn’t know what to read next. I really want to get into the fantasy genre and book tuber A Clockwork Reader always has plenty to recommend, though I do not want my TBR to get too overwhelming.

Are there any fantasy novels I should read? What is your favourite genre?

  2. ACOTAR was one of the few series that gets better as it goes! You’re going to LOVE the second book. The characters *is fangirling*. I won’t spoil anything, but, after months of publishing these books, I’m still pained for the characters. *sigh* Sometimes I forget they’re fictional 😂

    I absolutely adored the series ‘The Darkest Minds”, “Infernal devices”, “Caravan” and, of course, “Throne of Glass”. Oh, and the Cruel Prince 😂

    • I hope it does! Thank you for your fangirling – I now know that I can fangirl with you once I have finished the series. Caraval is quite popular at the moment and I’ve heard mixed opinions on Throne Of Glass 🙃 Thank you for your comment!
