This weekly meme was created by Milana @A Couple Reads and Flavia @Flavia the Bibliphile to feature and discuss backlist books (books that were published six months ago or earlier) that are on your TBR and you have yet to read. Another purpose is for readers to find out about awesome backlist books that they might have never heard of before! For more information on the meme, and for optional themes, please see the info page here.
Note: They have created banners which you can find on their blogs to use for this meme, but I have created my own. Feel free to use the ones they created, mine, or create your own!
Make sure to tag the original creators (see above) and comment on their Backlist Blast posts to let them know you’re participating!
Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Publication Date: May 5, 2015
Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.
I keep hearing all the things about this series and I haven’t brought myself to pick it up yet even though I own then first three books. It’s a total bookstagram buy (let’s be honest, what isn’t?) but it’s such a popular series that I almost feel bad I haven’t hopped on the bandwagon. I did start reading Throne of Glass last year but I still haven’t finished it because I haven’t made time for it. Can someone just add a few more hours to each day so I can get on it and be a productive reader? No, but seriously…
Have you read ACOTAR? Is it worth the hype? Let me know in the comments!
