The library is basically my second home.
A Court of Thorns and Roses - Sarah J. Maas

Clicks Tongue. I had to think long and hard about what to rate this book. I'll start off by stating the things that I didn't like...The first few chapters of the book were extremely slow and boring. I had a tough time getting through it, I thought I was never going to finish this book. After suffering through the first couple of chapters, I realized that Feyre was the most annoying character ever. She would always do something so dumb because she wouldn't listen to Tamlin or Lucien. Somewhere in the book,she stated that they were treating her like she was a little disobedient child...But she WAS. They told her not to drink the faerie juice, she drank the juice. They told her to stay in her room during the night of the festival, she followed the drums. I was getting more upset with each page. Furthermore, the sexual scenes were more graphic than I expected. I don't know if I would actually consider this a YA book. Also, it seemed forced. One moment, Feyre disliked Tamlin then next thing you know she wants him in between her legs and allows him to bite her neck. I was more surprised than anything. I would reread the previous paragraphs like "Did I miss something? What is this?" It was the same thing with Rhysand... I don't see how people fangirl over him. What he was doing to Feyre was basically like rape, in my eyes. It's just so awkward, I couldn't deal with that. Even though I had some problems with the book, I did like some things. Towards the end of the book, Feyre was becoming a little more tolerable. I could say my favorite character was Lucien. He was pretty laid back and cool. He would have me laughing sometimes. I also loved the theme of family. I absolutely liked Nesta too. I never thought I would read a Faerie book, but I managed to get through it. I'm not sure yet if I will read the next book. I have heard several people say that the second book is better than the first.
