This is probably the easiest reading wrap-up that I’ve done, because it’s simple. All that I read last month was the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, and Dandelion by Gabbie Hanna. However, I still want to share my thoughts on what I read.
The bad news? By reading that series back to back, I am now a little behind on my reading goal on Goodreads. I’m hoping that during April I get some time to catch up. However, it was completely worth it.
That said, here is what I read during March:
A Court of Thorns and Roses Series (Books 1-4) by Sarah J. Maas: I give this series as a whole 4.5 out of 5 stars, and now I understand why everyone was talking about it. The series is a Beauty and the Beast meets Cinderella retelling. It follows Feyre Archeron, who kills a beast in the woods to feed her family who has very little to no money. Feyre is sentenced by Tamlin to spend her entire life in his castle.
I don’t want to give too much away, but I will share my thoughts on the series itself. I loved it. Honestly, I went in to really skeptical because I didn’t enjoy the Throne of Glass series as much. I became obsessed with the characters, and loved the series.
The only thing that I didn’t like about the series is the novella A Court of Frost and Starlight. It was completely unnecessary to the series itself and didn’t add much to the series in my opinion. I do think you need it to read book four, but overall, I think that I could have done without it. That is why I am giving the entire series a four out of five stars.
Dandelion by Gabbie Hanna, Five out of Five Stars: I am such a huge fan of Hanna’s writing, so I am really glad that I picked this one up. This volume has themes about body image, relationship, and mental health. I highly recommend this one.
