Throwback Challenge: ACOMAF

I can officially say that A Court of Mist and Fury is still my all time favorite book!

Sarah J Maas packs all of the best parts of books into one! It has an amazing plot line, unbelievable character development, knock your socks off romance, and stunning world building. Some books that are the size of this one have too many events in them typically in my opinion,  but even plot point in this book is perfectly planned out and every event deserves and is required throughout this book. Most authors have all of the character development with the main characters finished by the end of the first book, it is amazing how Sarah J Maas develops character even further in the second book.

I think that this series is one of the best fantasy novels for sale. Sarah J Maas is just such an amazing author and cannot compare to any other books I have read, and I have read a lot. I would say the closest is Cassandra Clare, who is also a stunning writer. If you haven’t read the ACOTAR series, drop what you are doing and go buy this STUNNING series!!

If you have read them, what is your opinion on the series?

What book should I read next? (Hunger Games, Warcross, P.S. I Like You, When It’s Real, Eliza and Her Monsters)

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!

The genres that I typically like are fantasy, science fiction, and contemporary. For this challenge I have chosen a variety of the genres I love. All of these are previous reads that I Love.

  1. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

Amazon.com: A Court of Thorns and Roses (9781619635180): Maas ...

This series is my all time favorite and has been since I read it when I was 19. Sarah J Maas creates an amazing fantasy world that you never want to leave. Each book in this series is so unbelievably amazing that you can read each in one sitting!

2. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

Amazon.com: A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses ...

This is the second one in the ACOTAR series and my all time favorite of the three in the series. I even have a tattoo on my arm that I drew based on this book.

3. P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

P.S. I Like You: West, Kasie: 9781338160680: Amazon.com: Books

I have never really been into contemporary novels, but I always heard good things about Kasie west. This is the book that made me realize that some contemporary books can be amazing!

4. When It’s Real by Erin Watt

Amazon.com: When It's Real (9780373212521): Watt, Erin: Books

I loved this contemporary novel because it is so similar to all of the fan fiction that I used to read. Definitely one of the top contemporaries of the ones I’ve read!

5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1) by Suzanne Collins

I read the Hunger Games before the Movie came out and I was so intrigued by the unique concept. Suzanne Collins definitely has a way with words and sucks every reader in.

6. Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia 

Amazon.com: Eliza and Her Monsters (9780062290137): Zappia ...

This is another contemporary that I was super sure about reading, but once I started it I could not out it down! It is such a cute read.

7. Warcross by Marie Lu

Amazon.com: Warcross (9780399547966): Lu, Marie: Books

Warcross is such an out of this world read. I would say the closest thing to this book is Ready Player One, but I think Warcross is way better in my opinion. 10/10 recommend to anyone who loves science fiction and virtual reality!

I will update with my progress on this challenge!!
