‘You’re hardly more than skin and bones,’ she said, her fingers luxurious against my scalp.

‘Winter does that to poor mortals,’ I said, fighting to keep the sharpness from my tone.

Sarah J. Maas’s A Court of Thorns and Roses is a lovely fantasy read that I really enjoyed. I’m a huge fan of her Throne of Glass series and her writing is just beautiful in this one. And it’s a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, who doesn’t love that?

From my review:

“As Winter moves through the Mortal Lands, draining the land of precious resources and pushing the inhabitants to their limits, Feyre, youngest of three sisters, fights to keep her family fed. When a hunting trek puts her face-to-face with an unusual wolf, she makes a decision that will cost her her freedom. Feyre kills the wolf and when a creature from the Faerie Realms of Prythian comes looking for her, he gives her a choice: death or spend the rest of her life in Prythian. But nothing is as it seems in Feyre’s new home and her captive Tamlin may not be the beast she first thought.” You can find my full review here.
