It’s the last Friday of the month (technically it’s the 1st of July) and you know what that is right? Welcome back to my book club! For those of you who are new to my blog, I’m doing a book club where I share my book of the month on the last Friday of the month. So, hello new friends! =)
The book I picked for the month of June is by Sarah J. Maas and it is A Court of Mist and Fury. To be honest with you, I’ve never heard of the author before until last year. Last year, I started watching a lot of booktubers on Youtube and a lot of them are reading books by her. Apparently she just came out with a new book series after her success with Throne of Glass series (which I’m currently catching up on). The first book to her second series is called A Court of Thorns and Roses. It’s a high fantasy novel, and this book series is a retelling of beauty and the beast. At that point when I got the first book, I was clueless that it is going to be a series and have no idea that she’s coming out with a second one. When I heard that this book was anticipated in the booktube community, I had to join the bandwagon and boy, am I glad that I did because I think I love it so much more than the first one.
After everything that had happened with Amarantha and had survived her clutches, Feyre returned to Spring Court. She is to marry Tamlin, the High Lord of Spring Court but there was still the deal she made with Rhysand while she was under the mountain, where she were to spent a week each month with the High Lord of the night court. Rhysand appeared during her wedding and took her away to a place where Tamlin and his men wouldn’t even know existed. While Feyre was with Rhysand, she soon learn that a big war is coming and that the king of Hybern is going to break the wall that separates the mortal and the immortal realm. Feyre feared for her sisters and she works with Rhysand to stop the king. Now that Feyre is one of them, and possessed fae powers, Rhysand is training her to use her powers to fight the king and save her sisters and the ones she loved.
My thoughts on this book is that, it is very intense which makes you want to keep turning the pages and keep on reading to find out what happens next. After reading the first book, I like how Feyre’s character have grown and she is starting to embrace her fae abilities and powers. She is very strong-willed, and cared for her people. Another thing I like about this book is that, it has a lot of sexy elements to it. There’s a lot of involvement in this book which I do enjoy reading from time to time. Not sure if this book would be age appropriate for a 15 or 16 years old. Haha. When I read the first book, I was rooting for Tamlin and Feyre, but Rhysand is so interesting and mysterious that made me attracted to his character. He could be such an evil person that everyone hates and is afraid of, and he is also a romantic and kind towards the people who are close to him. Overall, I give this book 5/5. I think you’ll enjoy reading this book, especially if you’re into high fantasy books and magic and love some good romance.
Thanks for stopping by!XOXO ❤
