Ah, once again we reach the end of another month. But wow, I know February is a short month still… it passed by so fast. At least we’re getting closer to the end of the school year.🥳 thank god
I remember saying at the beginning of February that it’d be a great month… haha yeah, I believe I jinxed myself smh I should know better.
I definitely did read amazing books, I mean — I got to read two of my anticipated books of 2021 in the same month. But you know I actually don’t like that because after I’d finish them I WAS PUT INTO A SLUMP. So not fun.😥
And then there was school, but I’m not going to talk about that.
Anyways I guess I was still able to read a decent amount even getting into two slumps😂
It was both Chain of Iron and A Court of Silver Flames that got me into two slumps. I absolutely loved them so much, that I was just stuck in a book hangover in what felt like forever. They were just so beautiful sdfsdf even now I can’t stop thinking about them.
I literally didn’t read for a full week in February because of these books smh. Thankfully I’ve been able to get out of these cursed slumps, ahhh dont jinx it again, me.
I’m glad that in the end I was able to read what I set for my TBR except for one book.The Burning God has still yet to be read and I blame a certain individual who gave out a spoiler of the ending of the series… they could be lying but I don’t know, now I’m not in the mood to read TBG and I was so excited😭😭 I have no idea when I’ll read it now 😦
And FINALLY I read Six of Crows, hehe now I just need to read Crooked Kingdom and then I’ll be ready for the tv show😎 which btw if you haven’t already seen the trailer or just want to rewatch it like me… HERE IT IS!!!
Jesper’s wink gets me every. single. time.
AND THE DARKLING AHHHH BEN BARNES IS PERFECT * swooon *
Okay, now I’ll stop.
Anywas, I can’t wait for March and to see what that brings!! Slowly we’re getting closer to freedom summer ahhh then we’ll be able to read as much as we can ehehe.
All hail Queen Nesta and SJM for making me love her so much
My favourite ACOTAR book by far
I don’t know what to do with myself now.
Like actually, I think I’m gonna be in a book hangover for weeks— no, months omg I cannot. This has to be the most times I’ve ever cried in a book I swear to god I’m still crying right now.
From the beginning of the book to the end…even the acknowledgments, all of it destroyed me. My heart—
This has been said many times, but I love you so much Sarah. Sarah, my queen. Sarah, my goddess. My love for SJM will never cease to exist.

“Everyone deserves happiness. The road there isn’t easy. It is long, and hard, and often travelled utterly blind. But you keep going.
Because you know the destination will be worthwhile.”
This is Nesta’s special journey. Nesta’s journey through dealing with her trauma. Struggling with the pain she’s been in and healing. Finding the ability to love herself.
I didn’t think SJM could write a better book for mental health than ACOMAF, but I believe right here, she did exactly that. There wasn’t a single scene where I didn’t feel like my heart was breaking.
This was such an emotional ride. I could actually relate to Nesta and while it isn’t as severe as her, there are times where I’d also hate myself and feel like I deserve nothing. And seeing Nesta deal with all of this — it broke me in so many ways. To have her in so much pain and think that she herself has to change in order to be “fixed”… ohmygod no I swear I cant.😭🤚
Then there was Cassian. I love how he wouldn’t give up on Nesta and even while trying to help her, he still didn’t let her get away with everything. He kept reaching out his hand throughout it all. But in the end, the only person who could heal Nesta was Nesta herself.
You can help someone as much as you want, but at the end of all that, it’s up to them to see past that darkness and find the light. To love themselves and be happy with who they are.
To heal the parts of you that hurt so much and hurt others.
im crying again dammit This book hit me so hard. I’m actually such a mess. I never thought I could love a book this much. Not surprised it was Queen SJM that did this to me.
I will never forget the impact Nesta’s story had on me. There’s no doubt that I’ll be rereading this so many times in the future. Already I feel like rereading. My god, what has she done to me sobs is this what love feels like?

🛑SPOILER part of the review below. Do not go past this if you haven’t read ACOSF.🛑
═══.·:·.☽✧ ✦ ✧☾.·:·.═══
She would not be mastered by anything again. She was the master of herself.
I know I talked about Nesta already but seriously she’s such a queen. Cassian wasn’t the only one there for her. We’re introduced to new characters in this book and I love it. Honestly, it had to be my favourite part of her story.
Nesta’s friendship with Emerie and Gwyn was so, so, so wholesome and sweet. Each of them had their own past that haunted them and were afraid for the other to find out. But that’s exactly what made them fit so well together. That moment where they all shared their secrets with each other, realizing that the other wouldn’t be judging them…I cried so much not surprising omg it was so beautiful to see them open up.
Their love for each other was tested especially when they had to participate in The Blood Rite. I was so shook, I actually didn’t think they’d be doing it, but ohmygod that was so stressful. I was terrified SJM would destroy me again and kill Emerie or Gwyn. Thank god she took pity on our poor hearts.
Also, omg them training to be Valkyries dsfdsfgd YES YES YES. I LOVED that so much. And to see them in action during The Blood Rite against those bastards??? Perfection.but also really stressful bc my gurls🥺 ALSO THE FRIENDSHIP BRACELETS OHMYGOD I CANNOT. HEARTBREAKING AND BEAUTIFUL.
I legit hope Gwyn and Emerie play bigger roles in the next two books, especially ahem because I have some ships in mind.😏 Yes, I may be too early but I believe in EmeriexMor and AzrielxGwyn🙏

“The first time I saw that look on your face, you were still human. Still human, and I nearly went to my knees before you.”
Tell me, what’s one of the most heartbreaking scenes you’ve ever read?
I’ll tell you mine — CHAPTER 50. That was so heart-wrenching, my heart died. My own sisters were looking at me like I was insane. But something even more heartbreaking?
That completely and utterly destroyed me. I was dying on the inside. Just thinking about him crying, is making me cry. I swear to god, I literally put my heart through torture reading this.
Seeing through Cassian’s POV is the greatest gift we could’ve asked for. All the flaws and insecurities he feels, I’m in so much p a i n. I adore him even more than before. He was there for Nesta and Nesta was there for him, my heart-
“Forgiveness is not that easy.”
“Forgiveness is something we also grant ourselves. And I can talk to you until these mountains crumble around us, but if you don’t wish to be forgiven, if you don’t want to stop feeling this way…it won’t happen.”
Hello? Please stop destroying me. Please, Cas.
“You don’t need to become some impossible ideal. You don’t need to become sweet and simpering. You can give everyone that I Will Slay My Enemies look—which is my favourite look, by the way. You can keep that sharpness I like so much, that boldness and fearlessness. I don’t want you to ever lose things, to cage yourself.”
STOP. THE. PAIN. * cries * Cas, when did you become so wise and give such heart crushing speeches?? This is one of the most beautiful lines I’ve ever read. No question about it.
Also, to finally find out what was in the solstice gift Cassian wanted to give Nesta — it was A BOOK. Okay imma stop right there, I’m crying again. I cant do this.🥺😭
(And Azzy & Nesta’s friendship…sobs beautiful. HE GAVE HER A FAELIGHT FOR READING AS A SOLSTICE GIFT. PLEASE, MY HEART-)

“That’s the key, isn’t it? To know the darkness will always remain, but how you choose to face it, handle it…that’s the important part. To not let it consume. To focus upon the good, the things that fill you with wonder.”
“The struggle with that darkness is worth it, just to see such things.”
Am I really dedicating a whole section to The House of Wind? Yes, yes I am.
I absolutely love Nesta, but my god The House of Wind is the BEST part of this book. Absolutely amazing and kind. I didn’t I could love a house so much, but here I am.
Nesta wished for a friend and the House became that friend for her. It encouraged her to do more, pushed her to try more. The House reads romance novels. I’m crying, I love the House so much. And the darkness that swirled at the bottom of the library?? I can’t believe that was the heart of the House ohmygod please I love it. The way Nesta accepted the way it was, just like the House did that for her…sdfgdsfs I’m in pain. sobs too much for my heart.
AND IT GAVE NESTA CHOCOLATE CAKE AND ROMANCE BOOKS. What’s not to love about the House??? woah wait, why is this reminding me of celaena with her love of chocolate cake and books shook
The House of Wind is e v e r y t h i n g.

“I went into the Cauldron, too, you know. And it captured me. And yet somehow all you think of is what my trauma did to you.“
(This is Nesta’s book, but I just have to say this.)
I’m guilty of this too, but I think most of us hated Elain because of how we saw her, being sweet, kind and useless…and judged her right away, forgetting that she also is still suffering going into the Cauldron and with what happened in the war against Hybern.
Just like Nesta, Elain has a different way of showing her trauma and that’s by hiding it away and making it look like she’s okay, using the image everyone thinks of her being–sweet and kind. It’s just like we all think of her and hate her for that. Everyone expects Elain to be one thing, so she acts like that BUT is that truly Elain?
So yeah, I judged her too early. (Feysand’s POV really helped with this too) I shouldn’t hate her right away because there’s still her story to be told. I’m actually excited to see that.
But even knowing all of this, I still don’t like Elain.🤷♀️ I understand it and everything but just something about her rubs me off the wrong way. I don’t hate her, but I don’t like her either. I have no doubt Sarah will make us love, or at the very least, like Elain next book.
Also, I seriously do not ship her with Azriel.
I believe Azriel and Gwyn would be such a beautiful pair ohmygod I’d love that so much. If the three brothers get with the three archeron sisters…no no no, please no. And I absolutely love the Azriel POV. My heart is hurting so much for Azzy🥺 He needs the love he deserves.
Omg every time he’d appear as the “chaperone” for Nesta and Cassian–omg I was dying of laughter. I loved those scenes. Poor Azzy having to deal with Nesta and Cas, tsk tsk naughty Fae. But the friendship between Nesta and Azzy ohmygod my heart, im crying it was so beautiful. Azzy have Nesta
Also, something else as to why I think AzrielxElain wont be endgame is because during the solstice dance, both Cas and Eris talk about how smothered/plain Elain is wearing black, which I feel like is SJM’s way of saying that Elain isn’t compatible with The Night Court and it’s darkness & shadows. ahhh I truly feel like she’s going to go to another court in the next book.
Also Azzy’s shadows disappear when they’re around Elain. Meanwhile, the shadows dont disappear around Gwyn…they come alive around her. I don’t know about you, but it looks like SJM is trying to say something👀 I stan Gwynriel
“I am the rock against which the surf crashes.”
“Nothing can break me.”
AND THE FACT THAT AZZY SINGS AND GWYN SINGS SDFGSDFD I CANT😭🤚
═══.·:·.☽✧ ✦ ✧☾.·:·.═══
“I’ll deny it to the grave if you tell anyone, but I missed you too, Cursebreaker.”
Helion is amazing sdfgdsfsdf I love him so much. I think we can all agree with needing more Helion these next few books. And for Lucien to find out the truth🥺 We need a Lucien book so bad omg so many books needed.
I’m so curious as to what really was going on when Nesta asked about Jurian & Vassa and Lucien replied sharply HMM I may be reading too much into that, but something’s going on ughhh I wanna know more about those three.
ALSO, ERIS. There is SO MUCH MORE to Eris then is shown. I really want to see more Eris and his story. I believe there’s a lot more to him and Cas even sees that he’s a decent guy.
Oh, another thing I forgot to mention was the fact that Nesta Made three magic weapons and one of them she named the sword Ataraxia, which means Inner Peace…I’m in love. I stan Nesta so much. She grew to be so much stronger than she was before annnnnd the tears are coming in again.😃✌
This reminds me of Feyre and Nesta’s relationship. sobs It brings me joy to see the two finally understand and show their love for each other. No matter what, Feyre wouldn’t give up on her either. She tried so hard to help Nesta and I love Feyre so much for that. Unlike cough some people cough Rhysand. I actually despised him at one point in the novel, it was so messed up. I don’t love him anymore, but I’m glad everything’s good between Nesta and Rhys now.
Although, I have to say that when Nesta apologized to everyone it irked me. Like yeah, she did say harmful things to them, but the Inner Circle did too?? Honestly, they should’ve apologized too, mainly Rhys and Amren but ah, that didn’t happen rage they should grovel at her feet.
Those last few chapters had crying with them so much ohmygod even though I knew Rhys and Feyre wouldn’t die sdfgdsfg TALK ABOUT STRESSFUL. To see them all in so much pain and fear broke me so much.
Their baby boy’s name is Nyx — please erase my feelings. So beautiful that ending. Dark haired, blue eyed Nyx.🥺 I’m crying god.
(Okay I’ll stop being an emotional mess.)
OMG WAIT. JUST ONE MORE THING I REALIZED. THIS:
THAT WAS AELIN. AELIN WAS THE RED SHOOTING STAR OHMYGOD I AM SHOOK FR WTH OMG I DIDNT NOTICE THAT THE FIRST TIME WHAT THE HELL SARAH. OMG YOU WITCH, I LOVE YOU. FDDSFGDSDF AELIN APPEARED OHMYGODD I CANT GET OVER THIS. AELIN FLEW THROUGH THE 26 REALMS
(Okay, NOW I’ll stop)
All in all, this was absolutely perfect in my eyes. minus the too much smut Sarah has once again made me fall in love with her book and now I don’t know what to do with my life.
I pray that the next book is about Az and I’m hoping that it comes out next year.
Thank you, Sarah, for creating this beautiful and inspiring story.
In the beginning And in the end There was Darkness And nothing more.
I’m so so so excited for this month. SO many new releases, buddy reads with some amazing people and of course, it’s the month of ~love~
Already this month has gone off to a great start. I’ve already finished two books ahhh hopefully it continues that way <33
Here’s what I’ve planned:
Can you hear me screaming??? I was so so lucky to get a physical ARC of one of my 2021 most anticipated reads at the end of January!! I still can’t believe it😭 I’ve already finished reading it and ohmygod guys you are not ready for what Cassie’s planned. and i just found out that Chain of Thorns is BEING PUSHED BACK SDFGDSDF WHY IS THE WORLD SO CRUEL
Me and Alex @ The Scribe Owl are doing a buddy read for our ARCS of Hot British Boyfriend. It’s been a lot of fun ahhh so happy to have done it with her!!
Yes, I’m finally getting back to my buddy read pals’ TOG Marathon. We’re re-reading and ohmygod ALL THE FORESHADOWING IM NOTICING. * shook *
I know, I’m FINALLY reading this😂 I’m doing a huge buddy read with others except I’m very, very behind and by that — I mean, I haven’t even started💀 I realize I have way too many buddy reads going on at the same time, but I’m going to definitely start in a few days!!
We’re all ready for the tv show.😎
This is another buddy read I’m planning on doing with both Katie @ Whispering Pages and Alex @ The Scribe Owl. Super excited for this, especially since we’re all doing blog tours and it’s for fans of The Ember in the Ashes series. Hopefully we won’t be let down🤞
Of course, I’m totally hoping to finish TPW series and read The Burning God. oh god, how I actually fear for my life. Everyone who has read the series hasn’t come out the same.
I’m too young to die :’ )
Last but not least, I couldn’t not plan on reading this in February — my second most anticipated read this year, A Court of Silver Flames. Although the cover’s colours are…questionable, I so can’t wait to read about Nesta and Cassian’s story!!
Queen SJM blessing us again.🔥
I’m definitely hoping to read more than this sdfdsfgdfds I can already tell my heart’s going to break even more this month with some of these books…ahhh how fun pain is.🤡
Also, I know I’ve been posting less than usual — know that it’s because of school ughh the new quad has just started and already my teacher’s are torturing with so many assignments * sobs * don’t they understand that I want to read?? smh these monsters.
So if you see drop off the face of earth know that it’s because of school or I got lazy
“To the blessed darkness from which we are born, and to which we return.”
My initial thoughts after reading this:
🔥LUCIEN deserves better.🔥
🖤AZRIEL deserves better.🖤
⚔️CASSIAN deserves better.⚔️
Ahhhhh I fear that my opinion on certain people might anger some, but ¯_(ツ)_/¯.
Now before anything else……let me explain.
🛑WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW!!!🛑
“You know nothing about how I’m feeling,” Nesta snapped.
Ummmm actually, Nesta, I’m pretty sure Feyre knows exactly how you’re feeling.🤔 But sure, it’s not like Feyre herself didn’t also feel death when her neck was snapped by Amarantha, after being brutally tortured through deadly trials. It’s not like Feyre didn’t also have to deal with PTSD and depression for months—and unlike you, she didn’t have people trying to help during that time until Rhys came along.
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure Feyre suffered way more than both Nesta and Elain combined. I get it. The war left Nesta horribly traumatized and different people have different ways to cope with it, but if she’s going to do things her way, don’t drag everybody else into it, say…….like using up so much of Rhys and Feyre’s money?!?! I respect Nesta’s independence and strength, but she can also be a huge jerk.😢 Especially with Cassian!!! Poor Cassian wanted to give Nesta a Winter Solstice gift, but she brutally rejected it and just……my heart hurts so much for Cassian.🥺💔😭
BUT rant aside—I really am super curious to read about Nesta & Cassian’s story in ACOSF. We’re definitely going to learn more about what goes on in Nesta’s head (I mean, we all are curious xD) and some character development is gonna be shown, hopefully.🤞 With that said, I don’t think I can ship Nesta with Cassian, because Cassian deserves so much more love.😭 He’s been alive for more than 5 centuries, so Nesta’s not the only one dealing with trauma. Although the cauldron definitely did something to Nesta to change her so much, so her actions may not be all her fault🤔 AHHhhh I’m contradicting myself so much now.
“The Band of Exiles.”
“That’s what we call ourselves. The Band of Exiles.”
Oh Lucien.🥺 The characters here forget that Lucien also suffered during Amarantha’s reign and afterwards when he was alone with Tamlin, while Feyre was with the Inner Circle. And then you have Elainannoying the Hell out of me. She acts all cold to Lucien and complains about him not knowing her, but she herself doesn’t even give him the chance to!!! Lucien was forced with the mate bond as much as Elain was! Arghhh it just makes me so mad how Elain treats him. Lucien is 10000x times better than Elain will ever be.
I’m so happy that Lucien became friends with Jurian and Vassa. Feyre is surprised that Lucien doesn’t want to stay in Velaris, but I mean…….it’s pretty obvious that the others don’t really want him there, except for Feyre. Elain ignores him and 👿🤬😤 sigh I just really hope we get some more character development with Elain, because right now, I could care less about her. Lucien so deserves someone much better than Elain.(I’m shipping him with Vassa actually, although we don’t know much abt her, she still sounds better than Elain) And unless SJM manages to change how I feel about Elain, I totally do not ship her with Azriel either because again,Azriel deserves better than her.🔥
“A broken male. Broken from his own actions, his own choices.”
Oh yea and when it comes to those who suffered, it goes for Tamlin, too. Of course, Tamlin made some terrible mistakes (and regrets it), but when Rhys said those cruel words of “I hope you live the rest of your miserable life alone here” to Tamlin…..I actually hated Rhys a lot right then and there. Like the guy knows already that he screwed up badly, you don’t need to add on to his already self-loathing by telling him that! I hope somewhere and somehow……Tamlin finds happiness, too.🥺
Well, ranting is over now xD. If you read all that, I applaud you.😅
Otherwise, I did love seeing the rest of the gang having fun and somewhat at peace after the war with Hybern. They do deserve that at least, before the next problem arises, with the mortal queens and all.
The sneak peak to A Court of Silver Flames, gets me excited for February 2021, so hopefully, we won’t be disappointed.🤞
What we need is change……
There must be change if there will ever be hope for the ships.
“It is hard, and it hurts, but if I were to stop, if I were to let this loom or the spindle go silent …”
“Then there would be no Hope shining in the Void.”
“Only you can decide what breaks you, Cursebreaker. Only you.”
Well, this book sure broke me.🤧 Words will never be enough to express my love for The Court of Dreams.🖤
Sarah J. Mass has once again been able to capture my heart with her endings—the finale to Rhysand and Feyre’s story.
I don’t want to part ways with these two.🥺 I love Feysand so much.🥰
✨Thankfully, this isn’t the end to the world of Prythian✨.
🛑WARNING: SPOILERS FROM ACOMAF BELOW!!!🛑
After being betrayed by Tamlin to Hybern and watching her sisters be turned into Fae against their wills, Feyre is now seeking revenge trapped in the Spring Court undercover as a spy of the Night Court.
While at the Spring Court, Feyre secretly plans the destruction of the court from within and ruin everything for Tamlin. And on the other side, Rhys and his Inner Circle are preparing for an inevitable war.
For only one side will remain victorious……..
“Night Triumphant – and the Stars Eternal. If he was the sweet, terrifying darkness, I was the glittering light that only his shadows could make clear.”
Oh my god for real, though. Feyre was an absolute beast during her time at the Spring Court in the beginning of the book.😍 All her deceiving and making the others fall for her trap……she was such an evil genius and I loved it.😈
Especially when she’d make a fool out of that wretched creature, Ianthe. Now that, was golden👌 I laughing like a maniac hearing all of Feyre’s inner thoughts.😂 It was just too good xD. And when she finally killed Ianthe, I was just so, so happy.🎉 Death by the Weaver was a perfect end for Ianthe.😈😆 Muahahahahahahaha
“I would have waited five hundred more years for you. A thousand years. And if this was all the time we were allowed to have… the wait was worth it.”
Oh why is Rhys just so sweet?🥺 I’m probably going to be like the 300,000th person to repeat this, but I really do love Rhysand. His respect and love for Feyre and all her decisions will always get to me.😭
His protectiveness for those he loves is just so sweet, it breaks my heart—especially with him willing to sacrifice everything for them to live happily, even after everything he’s dealt with. And then there’s his sarcasm and witty remarks.😂 What’s not to love about Rhys?
“If I had not met an Illyrian warrior-in-training,” he said to Cassian, “I would not have known the true depths of strength, of resilience, of honor and loyalty.” ❂ “If I had not met a shadowsinger, I would not have known that it is the family you make, not the one you are born into, that matters. I would not have known what it is to truly hope, even when the world tells you to despair.”
Buuuut as much as I love Rhys, Azriel is definitely my favourite. Or maybe Cassian? Ahaha I can’t choose.😩 I love them both.😍 One is quiet and kind, while the other is loud and super flirty.😏 So looking forward to their stories!🤗
“When you erupt, girl, make sure it is felt across worlds.”
I loved learning more about Nesta and some changes in her, although obviously because this was through Feyre’s POV, there wasn’t that much. Omg I really want to know more about the power Nesta stole from the Cauldron. Luckily, ACOSF will be doing that.😁
Elain was mostly grieving over her lost mortal life and ties, but she did play a super crucial role at the end. Other than that, I really am curious to see what she’ll be doing and her character development in future books.
“If I had not met my cousin, I would never have learned that light can be found in even the darkest of hells. That kindness can thrive even amongst cruelty.”
And finally, Mor. I love Mor—there’s no doubt about that. And I was super shocked to learn a truth about her. After 5 centuries of dancing around feelings……the truth was finally revealed, and…..it breaks my heart and soul.🥺💔 I really hope certain people find the happiness they deserve.🤧😢🙏
And maybe if I had read this before AKOFAF, I would’ve loved Rhysand more, but Casteel still has me.🥰
What a heart-warming book, though.🤧💞
🛑WARNING: SPOILERS FROM ACOTAR BELOW!!!🛑
After dying and being reborn as one of the Fae, Feyre Archeron now has everything she’d once wanted—peace, riches, a high status, and her love, Tamlin. Still, months later, the trials and battle with Amarantha have left her traumatized and feeling broken.
Feyre no longer feels like the huntress she once was. Even though she saved everyone from Amarantha’s reign, Feyre does not feel at peace, slowly withering away. But on the day of her wedding day—
Well, that’s when ✨everything changes✨
“He thinks he’ll be remembered as the villain in the story. But I forgot to tell him that the villain is usually the person who locks up the maiden and throws away the key.”
“He was the one who let me out.”
Feyre grew so much.🥺 From the beginning of the story, we saw her dealing with the aftermath of ACOTAR and what she did. Then there’s Tamlin being a little too controlling, so that also didn’t help. What she had to deal with broke my heart.😭
“There are good days and hard days for me—even now. Don’t let the hard days win.”
But then there’s Rhys. He was always there for her when Feyre was on the brink of giving up on everything, but Rhys refused for that to happen.
He’d push her to grow and at the same time listened to her demands/wishes, respecting each decision Feyre would make (Lol I feel like I’m saying the exact same thing like in AKOFAF😂.
“No one was my master— but I might be master of everything, if I wished. If I dared.”
And slowly, with the help of Rhys and his Inner Circle—Feyre changed. She became stronger both on the inside and outside. Tamlin had tried smothering that flame in her when he’d basically kept her trapped in the manor, but with enough pushing from the others, she was able to thrive and reach her full potential.🔥
“I was not a pet, not a doll, not an animal. I was a survivor, and I was strong. I would not be weak, or helpless again I would not, could not be broken. Tamed.”
Seriously, though. Feyre’s character development was probably my favourite part.🥺🥰
And like Rhys also had his own demons, dealing with the same nightmares as Feyre, but he’d never let anyone else know about them because he didn’t want it to burden them. This guy……🥺🤧😭 Of course, Feyre was there to help and comfort Rhys the same way he’d done to her. This is like the definition of one of many 💫perfect relationships💫
Haha and meeting Cassian, Azriel, Mor, & Amren…..AHhh I love these guys😍🤣. They’re one big family with all their quarreling and teasing. I can’t imagine not loving them. Each have the other’s backs and will protect those they love until death.🥰💕
I do have some ships in mind, but with how SJM loves to destroy me…..I think I’ll stay on the fence for now xD.
And this has probably been repeated many times, but I really do despise Tamlin. I mean, in ACOTAR, I didn’t really much care for him nor dislike him, but here…….Grrrrrrr👿. I get that he was also dealing with the trauma from the previous book, but still, he must learn.😕
Now the only reason I didn’t give this 5 stars is because I was spoiled with A LOT of what would happen in this book, so none of it was really a surprise to me, taking a little bit of the fun from it.
Still, I did really love this.💞 And with that ending, I’m super curious to see what’ll happen next.👀
