Less exciting, the next book I finish was: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain.
This was required reading for me, if it hadn’t have been on my course I would’ve DNF’d it.
This was probably the most boring book I’ve ever read.

I don’t usually give a rating for required reads but I am for this:
Rating: 1 Star.
DO NOT recommend. So bad.

After finishing KoA I literally couldn’t stop thinking about it, I couldn’t pick up another book. After finishing Huckleberry Finn for class, I was well and truly in a slump.
So… I decided to reread A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. 

Rating: 4 Stars
Reread review coming soon!

Another required read for uni, Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy. This started out slow and I didn’t think I was going to like it but I ended up really enjoying it!

Rating: 3.75 Stars

And of course, I had to read A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas. After reading ACOTAR, I just had to continue on to this amazing book.

Rating: 5 Stars
Reread review coming soon!

Finally, the last book I finished in November was A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas.
Obviously, I had to continue my reread of ACOTAR, I loved this even more than last time!

Rating: 4 Stars

Thought I’d also mention a book I started to read in this month but didn’t finish and won’t be finishing: Wise Children by Angela Carter – This was required reading for class but I seriously couldn’t get through it. I read about half but it was seriously boring and I couldn’t get into it at all.

Thoughts On A Court of Frost and Starlight

acofas

So, since everyone ACOTAR fan, book-blogger will be reviewing ACOFAS I thought I would mix it up and instead just state a few thoughts rather than a full review. (As I’m sure you’re sick of them)

So let’s get on with my thoughts!

1) NOT ENOUGH AZRIEL
Why is there never enough Az?! I love him, I would’ve loved a chapter from his perspective for once. I always feel his character takes the back seat, I wish we could know more!

2) Rhysand just wants sex??
I was really looking forward to reading from Rhys’ perspective but he just thought about having sex with Feyre for the most part. I was kind of disappointed by his perspective, I really love Rhys, he’s one of my favourite characters but on the whole, he wasn’t as good as I hoped.

3) Oh my god, not another Feyre chapter!
After 3 whole books from Feyre’s perspective, it’s safe to say I’ve had enough of her.
Every time I got to another Feyre chapter I just rolled my eyes, she’s also kind of gone downhill?? She seems really pathetic in this book.

4) Nesta is the actual WORST person ever.
I have absolutely no idea how anyone likes or defends Nesta. I have hated her since ACOTAR and nothing she has done has redeemed her. She’s so unnecessarily bitchy and horrible. Terrible sister and overall shit person. I could write a whole post on hating Nesta…
I’m super anti-Nessian but this book really made me despise that ship.
Which brings me on to my next thought…

5) CASSIAN DESERVES BETTER
I hate with a passion that everyone ships Cassian with Nesta, he’s so sweet and lovely.
He deserves someone so much better. I know SJM is going to make Nessian canon but I will forever hate it with every fibre of my being.
On the brighter side… Cassian saying Amren looked like an angry snowball was hilarious.


Just to let you guys know, I am NOT hating on ACOFAS, I did enjoy it for the most part but it definitely wasn’t my favourite in the series. I look forward to the next book and reading from the others’ perspectives. (DYING Azriel to be a POV in the next one…)
Review on my GoodReads

Overall, I gave ACOFAS 3.5 Stars.
