Favorite Quotes:

"Elain had always been gentle and sweet-and I had considered it a different sort of strength. A better strength. To look at the hardness of the world and choose, over and over, to love, to be kind. She had been always so full of light."-Page 156

 Azriel shrugged. "We-Rhys, Cass, and I-will occasionally remind each other that what we think to be our greatest weakness can sometimes be our biggest strength. And that the most unlikely person can alter the course of history."-Page 309

"We're all broken," Mor said. "In our own ways-in places no one might see". -Page 503

"I believe everything happens for a reason. Whether it is decided by the Mother, or the Cauldron, or some sort of tapestry of Fate, I don't know. I don't really care. But I am grateful for it, whatever it is. Grateful that it brought you all into my life. If it hadn't...I might have become as awful as that prick we're going to face today. Rhys said to Azriel, "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."-Page 612

Hey guys, I'm finally back! It's been like a month since I last updated. I've been busy but I've also been reading ACOWAR which took me almost three weeks to read. That's why I haven't posted in a couple of weeks. Anyway, I'm back. Today I am reviewing "A Court of Wings and Ruin" by Sarah J. Maas. I absolutely loved this book! This was my most anticipated book of 2017 and it didn't disappoint. This book is also my favorite book of 2017 so far. It was perfection! It was a great conclusion but I'm really sad that it's over. She's writing three more books in the same world so the series isn't completely over yet, I can't wait for the next book in 2018! This trilogy is definitely a favorite of mine. Let's get on to the review. 

The Plot-5/5

I gave the plot a perfect rating because this book is my favorite out of the three. I didn't think it could be even better than ACOMAF, but it was. I loved the plot even though not much happened. 

The Writing-5/5

Even though Sarah isn't my favorite author, I still love her writing. So I had to give it a perfect rating. 

The Pacing-5/5

I've read a lot of reviews and many people thought this book was slow. I'll admit that the book felt very long, it's 700 pages, but I was never bored. I loved every single page of this book so I didn't have a problem with the pacing. I usually love slow-paced books so that's why it didn't bother me. 

The Cover-5/5

I absolutely love the cover! Green is one of my favorite colors so I had to give it a perfect rating. 

The World-5/5

I just love this amazing world that Sarah created. It is just so beautiful and magical. I'm so sad that I had to leave this world, but I'll be back next year when the fourth book comes out. It's definitely one of the best worlds that I've ever read in a Fantasy series. It's just so unique. 

The Characters-5/5

The Characters are the reason why I love this series so much. This series seriously has the best characters I've ever read, well besides Cassandra Clare's books. Even though there are only three books, I grew so attached to the characters. Rhy's squad is just so amazing. I love Feyre and Rhys, they are my OTP, they are the best book couple ever! Azriel, Mor, and Amren are so awesome and Cassian is one of my favorite characters in this series. I just love him so much. Lucien grew on me. I wasn't really a fan of him in the first two books but I ended up loving him in this book. Tamlin is Tamlin, I was never a fan of him even in the first book. I just couldn't get attached to him for some reason. After finishing this book I sort of have mixed feelings about him. He can be mean at times but he does have a nice side, he just doesn't show it very often. I did gain some respect for him at the end of the book. I love Feyre's sisters, Nesta and Elain. I always loved Elain, she's so sweet and lovable. I really didn't like Nesta in the first book but she eventually grew on me and I loved her in this book. The character development was amazing in this series, these guys are like friends to me, they also feel like family to me. I love them so much!


Even though it took me over two weeks to read this book, I still enjoyed myself while reading it. This series is so fun to read. There's so much witty banter and this book made me laugh at times. 

My overall rating is 5/5 Lily Pads. This was such an amazing series, and I'm so sad it's over. I hope I can revisit my friends in the future. This was such a perfect book and just like with ACOMAF, it's one of the best books I've ever read. This series will stick with me for a long time and I can't wait to reread it someday. I wanna reread the series right now. Like I said before I can't wait for the future books she writes in this world. ACOWAR was a great conclusion and I can't wait to see where this series goes next. If you haven't read this series yet, what are you doing? Go pick up ACOTAR right now! You won't regret it. If you love Fantasy books with amazing characters definitely read these books. These books are so worth a buy. Anyway, that was my review. I'm sorry this review was up so late. Thank you so much for reading this review. I'll have more posts coming soon so stay tuned. Have a great day and happy reading! :)
