I did my first buddy read ever and it was with Debbie from Debbie’s Library and Lia from Lost In A Story. We divided the review into three parts and you can read the rest on their blogs. I will link their posts below. This part of the review is spoilers free.
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.
1. How addicting was the book?
Lia: Mildly addictive. The beginning was very slow, but it got better. Although because the ending was so closed, I don’t really feel like reading the next book. It feels so finished.
Debbie: the ending was very addictive. Right now I want to hop on to the next one to see what will happen and with whom Feyre will end up.
Me: The book was addicting. It took me maximum three sittings to finish it. I did have some free time and I was adamant on finishing it.
2. Would you want to watch the movie adaptation (if it were to be made)?
Lia: Maybe. I’ll probably watch it if I’m bored and because I’m curious. Although I wouldn’t pay for it to go to the cinema.
Debbie: Yes I would love to watch a movie or TV show adaptation of this. That would make it easier for me to picture the world.
Me: I would want to see the movie adaptation. The world building is magnificent. And to watch it would definitely be interesting.
3. Did you like the writing style?
Lia: Yeah the writing was really good! I liked Feyre’s point of view and how it was described from her perspective. However, maybe Sarah J. Maas went a little overboard on the descriptions of how Feyre would paint something.
Debbie: Yes I love Sarah J Maas’ description, it is really beautiful.
Me: Yes, the novel was a fun one time read. The whole book had a refreshing touch to it. I am not sure if I will read it again, though.
My Rating: 3.9/5
That’s all for today folks, Thank you for stopping by. 😀
