This post has been a long time coming.
I read A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas last year in 2019, and it wrecked me in the best type of way. It made me reflect on what I actually like to read—fantasy romance, the more steam the better—and altered how I view myself as a reader.
Probably my background as an English major had gotten to my head.
Now, because of this series, because of this book, I’m more honest with myself about the books I enjoy.
Check out my reading vlog of A Court of Mist and Fury below!
(And here’s look at some of my now many bookish items in honor of this masterpiece of literature.)
A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2)
by Sarah J. Maas
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Release Date: May 3, 2016
Genre: Fantasy, Romance
Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.
Don’t let the hard days win.
To the people who look at the stars and wish.
To the stars who listen—and the dreams that are answered.
The stars cascaded over us, filling the world with white and blue light. They were like living fireworks, and my breath lodged in my throat as the stars kept on falling and falling.
When you spend so long trapped in darkness…you find that the darkness begins to stare back.
No one was my master—but I might be master of everything if I wished. If I dared.
