Part 2 comes December 31
What were your favorites of this year .
oct 4-Nov 1
Hope warms the coldest night.
Feyre, Rhys, and their close-knit circle of friends are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve.
Yet even the festive atmosphere can't keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated--scars that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.
Review : I really loved this book this is during solstice and Feyre and gang are all going to be together except Nesta who is still dealing with the war and won't talk to her sisters and cassian . Feyre started painting again and it's really helping her with dealing with the aftermath of the war . For solstice Feyre gives Rysand her painting and she says she wants to start having a child with him which was so sweet . Nesta actually show up for solstice I really enjoyed this story can't wait to read more from this world.
Dangerous words, Rhysand,” Amren warned, strutting through the door, nearly swallowed up by the enormous white fur coat she wore. Only her chin-length dark hair and solid silver eyes were visible above the collar. She looked— “You look like an angry snowball,” Cassian said.”
surveyed the cabin around me, the surfaces I’d painted nearly a year ago. I was promised a wall, Rhys. A pause. A long pause. I’ve taken you against a wall before. These walls. Another long, long pause. It’s bad form to be at attention while in the birchin. My lips curved as I sent him an image. A memory. Of me on the kitchen table just a few feet away. Of him kneeling before me. My legs wrapped around his head. Cruel, wicked thing. I heard a door slamming somewhere in the house, followed by a distinctly male yelp. Then banging—as if someone was trying to get back inside. Mor’s eyes sparkled. “You got him kicked out, didn’t you?” My answering smile set her roaring.”
Cassian had named about two dozen poses for Nesta at this point. Ranging from I Will Eat Your Eyes for Breakfast to I Don't Want Cassian to Know I'm Reading Smut. The latter was his particular favorite.
I read the series before but I will be rereading one book each month from the series, to see how I feel this time around.
I really loved the characters so much more this time around, even though Dorian is still my favorite character in this book. I know that might be an unpopular opinion but I love characters that aren't perfect and I love guys who are considered "playboys," who really have a sensitive side. I really don't consider him a player at all, but I know some readers do. I also love his friendship with Celaena.
Celaena I still get mad at a lot, I really feel like she was just using Dorian, not the friendship part but the relationship part. I really liked Celaena and Chaol's relationship a lot more this time around. Last time I didn't care at all for there relationship and I didn't really care for Chaol. The first time around I just was like okay his just there, and the only thing I liked about him the first time around was his friendship with Dorian. I actually felt more of a chemistry between Dorian and him. Of course not in a sexual way, but as brothers. If they didn't think about themselves as brothers then, I wouldn't have minded them as a couple. But they definitely had a Bromance going on that is freaking awesome.
I thought Celaena for being an assassin was pretty stupid at times. And I really wish she would have used that skill set more. I did like the ending but of course you could know what was going to happen. Even if it is your first time reading the book.
Favorite scene was the library scene with her and Chaol. And when she wanted to read some books, and the note she sent someone, to get permission. And of course my absolute favorite part with the puppy.
Favorite side characters Nox and Nehemiah, (sorry if I spelled her name wrong. )
Apparently I forgot to do my October wrap so I combined October and November
Favorite from October jar of hearts
Favorite from November a court of frost and starlight
Book: Read a book with candles on the cover or the word “candle” or “light” in the title; OR a book that is the latest in a series; OR set in India; OR any non-fiction book that is ‘illuminating’ (Diwali is Sanskrit for light/knowledge and row, line or series)
I'm using A Court of Frost and Starlight for the Diwali square. It has both the word "light" in it and is also the latest book released in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series.
