Well guys I did it… I finally finished a fantasy fiction book- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. It took me longer than my usual romance read, but I am so happy I finished it.
Not going to lie… I struggled at first. Learning how to read the names was a challenge for me. Also, picturing the fairies with the masks on was difficult. However, I LOVED the story-line. I loved how Feyre was such a strong woman and never EVER gave up. But… did anyone else want to read Rhysand’s POV? I needed to know what was going through his mind at the end of the book that it was driving me nuts! I guess I will have to keep reading the second book in the series: A Court of Mist and Fury to find out.
Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.
Well not only did I finish A Court of Thorns and Roses on Monday evening but I also finished Eleanor and Grey by Brittainy C. Cherry.
Why did I wait so long to read this? This book has been sitting on my TBR list for a few months now. I always walked past it or I pick it up and just wasn’t feeling it. After I finished A Court of Thorns and Roses, I knew I had to pick up a romance book and my fingers went straight to Eleanor and Grey. WOW!
Did anyone else cry over the pain and heart ache in this book? I was completely taken back by how much pain I felt when reading this book. This book was written so well that I felt like I was as Eleanor, feeling her pain. Now don’t think that this book was just all sadness because there were many happy moments as well. The details and how the story line was, is what made this book so GREAT!
There was a moment where I didn’t want to finish the book because I didn’t want it to end. Did that ever happen to you? What are your thoughts on this book?
Greyson East left his mark on me.
As the young girl who first fell for him, I didn’t know much about life. I did know about his smiles, though, and his laughs, and the strange way my stomach flipped when he was near.
Life was perfect…until it wasn’t, and when we were forced to go our separate ways, I held on to our memories, let go of my first crush, and wished for the day I’d find him again.
When my wish came true, it was nothing like I imagined.
I couldn’t have known when I took the nanny position that it would be his children I looked after, that my new boss would be that boy I used to know, that boy who was now a man—a cold, lonely, detached man.
The smile and laugh I had loved so much were gone, now distant memories. Every part of him was covered in a fresh pain.
When he realized who I was, he made me promise to do my job and my job only.
He made me promise not to try to get to know him, not to recall the memories I’d treasured all this time.
But, sometimes, I saw the boy I’d once known in his stormy eyes. I saw the Greyson who smiled and laughed, who had stolen a young girl’s heart, and there was no doubt in my mind that this boy was worth fighting for.
I was given a second chance with the one who’d left his mark on me. All I hoped was that somehow I’d leave a mark on his soul, too.
I leave for our two week honeymoon in a few days and I can’t wait to share my Honeymoon TBR list with you. I will post a blog before I leave and probably won’t post until I come back.
I hope I have enough books! How many do you usually take on vacation?
