A Court of Thorns and Roses - YA Review by Claire W

Reader: Claire W.
Age: 14
Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Pub Date: 05/05/15
Galley: Yes
Top 25: Yes
Convince us to read the book: This book had an amazing plot, well-rounded characters, and good dialogue as well. You can really see the main character Feyre grow throughout the book in the way she treats strangers and her family. 
Memorable or Forgettable: The plot was like an over done story with a twist in it. But the writing style is what really made it memorable for me.
Cover: The cover was a bit odd. It did not tempt me to read the book. I picked up the book because I love Sarah Maas' other books.
Age Range: 16 through 18 and up
Quality: 4Q - Better than most
Popularity: 3P - Some teen appeal
Additional CommentsThis book had some questionable scenes that I think make it not belong very well in YA.
AnnotationFeyre's family is in pieces after her mother dies and her father lost his fortune. Feyre is the only thing keeping them alive. But when she mistakenly kills a wolf, a beast-like creature shows up demanding recompense. Feyre is taken captive by the beast whom she discovers is a Fairy lord named Tamlin who she is starting to fall for.
