A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

This book was amazing and utterly unputdownable. Personally, I think it is much better than any book about Celeana Sardothien. On the surface, the main character, Feyre is just like an improved version of Celeana. In reality, she’s more complicated, she’s more passionate, easier to empathize with, more unique, just in general better than Celeana. I absolutely adore Feyre. The book starts off pretty traditionally, like a Cinderella story. Poor girl lives with and supports poor, yet terribly mean family. The similarities end there. When Feyre accidental kills a faery, she is forced to life out the rest of her life in the faery world, which has extremely tense relations with the human world, because the superior faeries used to keep the humans as slaves. She’s spirited away to a gorgeous palace, home to a High Lord of the faeries and his friend. There, almost nothing is what it seems, and everything is practically oozing intrigue and mystery. At first, she’s angry and terrified that she will never be able to see her family, however terrible, again. But as she begins to warm up to her new life, and new friends, she realizes, something is wrong. A plague is sweeping the land, and a mysterious “her” is haunting the thoughts of everyone. Not to mention, everyone wears a mask, that they literally cannot take off. Slowly Feyre unwinds a terrible mystery, and discovers what, and who really matters to her. Sarah J. Maas creates an amazing fantasy world, with characters like never seen before. This is a must read for any fantasy and action lover this Spring (released May. 5). Put it on your wish list!
