"What I'm Reading" Wednesday #23

             I am head-over-heels in love with the series I'm reading this "WIR"-Wednesday!

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
Blurb:
Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court--but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms--and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future--and the future of a world cleaved in two.

Why I Chose This Book / What I Think So Far:
I bought this book at the same time I bought A Court of Thorns and Roses because I figured if I ended up loving the first book then I'd save myself from making a second purchase to get the sequel. After reading ACOTAR of course I had to read the second book! I am in love with the characters and the world Sarah J. Maas has created. ACOMAF picks up three months after Tamlin, Feyre, and Lucien leave Under The Mountain. I'm about 40 pages in and so far Tamlin and Feyre are now engaged but Feyre's freedom has now lessened with all of her duties as Tamlin's future wife and his overprotectiveness about her safety. I can't wait to see where this book takes these characters and I'm anxiously awaiting the reappearance of Rhys. 

I also read the first book in this series this week...

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
Blurb:
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin--one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin--and his world--forever.

What I Thought of This Book:
OMG I loved this book! I was so afraid I wouldn't be able to get into this book. I usually am not a fan of fantasy but after reading Wendy Higgins's latest book, The Great Hunt, and loving it when I saw this book I thought: why not give it a chance? I am so glad I did. Not only was this story easy to get into but the characters, the storyline, the world that Sarah J. Maas has created in this book... it's amazingly written. You'll easily relate to and fall in love with Feyre, even if you're not the tomboyish-huntress type. She's strong, she's caring, and she'll do anything for those that she loves. This book kind of reminds me of the "Beauty and the Beast" storyline mashed together with a wild and sometimes dangerous world of the Fae, but that's what makes it all the more better. Bottom line, read this book. Even if you're just getting into the fantasy genre, like me, you won't be able to put this book down. It will keep you up late reading, be the first thing you reach for when you wake up in the morning, and keep you captivated when you dream about it at night. And have I mentioned that I am in love with the covers on both ACOTAR and ACOMAF? Seriously, they're beautiful and colorful! 
My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars!
