A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
This is my first re-read of this series, starting with A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES. I’m buddy reading this series with Chris at Biblio Nerd Reflections. He wants to read more series as part of his 2023 bookish goals and I want to re-read it. Perfect timing. This is my first time buddy reading with anyone and it’s pretty fun.
This time around I chose a different format and am listening to the graphic audio version of the book. It is so cool to listen to this type of audiobook. It’s like a movie in my head. It also changes the reading experience. Certain action descriptions written in the book that raised red flags for me are instead acted out on audio and don’t seem as concerning. I remember not being particularly impressed with the writing style when I first read it. But that aspect isn’t noticeable on audio. It’s also a lot easier to get caught up in the emotion of the scene (poor wolf and fairy). But the most fun part about rereading this book is noticing all the breadcrumbs that I completely missed during my first read through.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.
At least, he’s not a beast all the time.
As she adapts to her new home, her feelings for the faerie, Tamlin, transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But something is not right in the faerie lands. An ancient, wicked shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it, or doom Tamlin–and his world–forever.
From bestselling author Sarah J. Maas comes a seductive, breathtaking book that blends romance, adventure, and faerie lore into an unforgettable read.
