A court of thorns and roses: A brief rant and recommendation

Hello, so I recently I read the series a court of thorns and roses. And let me tell you it was a ride. To be honest most of the feelings I will convey in this post will be about the third book (A court of wings and ruin) because I had just finished reading it when I felt the need to share my emotions with someone. Of course I would talk to my book loving friend about it but she had specifically told me “DO NOT READ! SAVE YOUR INNOCENCE!” So I figured it would be best to not tell her. As I had purposely read it to not obey her.

I speed through this book series with no self-discipline. It was a roller coaster of emotions, it tore out my heart, stomped on it and then shoved it back in. It made me smile, laugh and flush with embarrassment. I absolutely loved the series and it was done too soon. The twists and turns and the character development was amazing. I was able to feel the characters feelings and understand each of them. Each character was so well written and crafted to perdection. I want to gush about so many scenes in this book, that made me cry or scream in anguish but I wouldn’t want to spoil it for anyone. So here is the WARNING a head of time. THERE WILL BE SPOILERS, so here we go. Also, I obviously recommend this book to anyone and everyone, maybe this is the series that will spark your love for reading.


I don’t completely remember all of my raw feelings for the first two books because I have to admit, I may have speed through it a little too fast to enjoy it fully. But I do remember the feelings from the third book. Hw I wanted to cry when they found Elain missing. How I smiled when we learned that Mor was a lesbian or bi, I’m honestly not sure but I know she favors girls. How I cried my eyes out and how it felt like my heart was being torn apart as Feyre found out that Rhysand was dead and the agony I felt as she cried and begged for the lords to save him. The pure joy I felt when the prick came back to life with a snarky remark, dragging Amren back with him.

I wish that it didn’t ever have to end, but like all good things it must come to an end. I think this is why I read so much, it allows me to feel so freely and raw.

Of course there are so many more scenes and feelings that I could list but I got most of the gushing out of my system, so I think I’m going to stop here after leaving behind a few ending spoilers. Thanks to listening to me rant for a little while. Also, I definitly recommend reading this series, but only if you think you are mature enough.
