Throwback Challenge: ACOTAR

As you all know by now I am completely obsessed with Sarah J Maas. I love all of her books, but I read the A Court of Thorns of Roses series first. It holds a special place in my heart, I even have a tattoo for the second book.

Rereading this series is just as fun as the first time around because when you reread anything you will usually pick up on things you didn’t notice the first time around. Personally I am a very fast reader and sometimes I go so fast that I won’t pick up on all of the details. That is one thing I love about this series, Sarah is amazing at character and world building. It is not hard to imagine these beautiful worlds that she has graciously created for us.

One thing I love about rereading the series is that I know who’s going to end up with who and what happens at the end of the series. I love it because its so fun to see how the characters act when they first meet.

A Court of Thorns and Roses is the best retelling on the market in my opinion. Sarah J Maas starts it out as being a beauty and the beast retelling, but vastly takes a turn when she introduces all the amazing plot points. The second book is really where I lost my mind reading it the fist time. I cannot wait to read the second again because it is my all time favorite!!

Have you read this series? What are your thoughts?

psa I might be delayed on the next post because my boyfriends 2 year old is with us for two days and I want to spend the time with her! I will update by Friday!

From your local bibliophile, until next time!

End of the Year Book Tag!!

Happy new year everyone! For my first post of the year I thought I would do the tag that you have seen everywhere. I love tags, but don’t do them too often on my blog.

Hope you like it!

1. Are there any books you started this year you need to finish?

The only one is the first book in the Slayer Chronicles by Heather Brewer. I actually liked the book and have the next two books. The only reason that I have not finished it is because it got packed away when I was moving and I have not yet unpacked it.

2. Do you have an autumnal book to transition to the end of the year?

I don’t really have any seasonal reads, I kind of just read what I want when I want.

3. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

There are some really cool new releases coming up this year! Some are Batman (came out today), A Court of Frost and Starlight, the last TOG book, Catwoman, and many more! I think 2018 is going to be an awesome reading year.

4. What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

Well its already past the end of the year, but mine was Lord of Shadows. I can proudly say that I finished it the day after Christmas! I was pretty proud of myself 🙂

5. Is there a book that you think could still shock you and become your favorite?

I am constantly reading books that shock me and go into my top favorites!

6. Have you already made reading plans for 2018?

My 2018 reading goals are probably reading 200 books and posting a review after every book that I read!

Let me know in the comments what your 2018 reading goal is!
