I first discovered Sarah J. Maas back in 2015 and just fell in love with the way she was telling stories. This trilogy has been a roller coaster, and I was so happy to hear that it wasn’t going to end with this book. I don’t think any of us are ready to let go of these characters. There are a lot of things that I’m still interested in learning.

 

 

**The following contains spoilers**

There are loose ends that I’d like to see tied up!

  • What’s going to happen between Nesta and Cassian?

    • How is Nesta going to deal with the death of her father?
    • How is Cassian going to deal with the guilt of Nesta saving his life during the final battle that killed so many others?
  • I want to know more about Elain, Azriel, and Lucien.

  • What happens when Lucien talked to Tamlin?

  • Will Lucien find out his real heritage?

  • What’s going to happen with Tamlin? Where is his story going?

    • While there is a lot of hate towards Tamlin’s character, I think his story arc is not finished. He loved Feyre, and, yes, that relationship became super toxic, but, at the end of the book, he loved her enough to let her go. Will he be able to move on, heal, and become the High Lord that the Spring Court needs him to be?
  • When will Mor come out? Will she finally find someone that makes her happy?

  • What about Eris?

    • This character is up in the air for me. To me, he is an extremely complex character, and I don’t think we know his entire story yet.
    • His relationship with Mor:
      • In the book (274-276), it is hinted that when Eris broke off the engagement with Mor, it cost him something. What is his side in that ordeal?
    • His relationship with Lucien:
      • He protected Lucien by telling Tamlin and refusing to participate in hurting Lucien and his lover.
      • Does he know that Lucien is actually Helion’s child?
    • Will he actually overthrow his father? And will he be a better High Lord?
    •  Is he horrible, or is he pretending to be horrible?
  • Vassa is the badass firebird that saved the day and turned the tide of the war. Who is her keeper? Can they free her? Will she be able to save her people from the other queens? What about the other mortal Queens? What happened to them? What will happen going forward?

  • Whose point of view will it be told from? Will it switch around? Will there be new characters?

For me Feyre’s story has been told. While I’d be happy to hear more, I’m eager to get my questions answered. (Plus, I don’t want Sarah to kill Feyre’s happy ending, so I’d rather she just leave Feyre and Rhys alone and happy.)

I’m interested to hear any theories about any of my questions! Or if you have unanswered questions from A Court of Thorns and Roses, I’d love to hear them!

Until next time!

Books of 2016

Posted on Updated on

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, so I wanted to make sure that this post was a good one. One of the best things about coming into a new year is that the books we’ve been waiting ages for are finally released. There are so many great books to choose from, so I did my best to keep it short!

Books I’m looking forward to in 2016:

  • Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosamund Hodge
    • I read two of her other books and absolutely loved her retelling of stories that we’ve already heard. This new book is based the story of Romeo and Juliet, but with a twist that will create a new and exciting plot line.

  • A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
    • This is the sequel to A Court of Thorns and Roses. One of the most exciting books that I read in 2015, I was devastated when I learned that I had to wait a year before I could find out what happened next. The world that Sarah Maas created is beautiful and dangerous. Warning: these books will consume your life as soon as you open the cover. I am anxiously awaiting the sequel.

  • As Death Draws Near by Anna Lee Huber
    • I recently found this series of books and I absolutely fell in love with Lady Darby. The series of books are called the Lady Darby Mysteries and the book coming out is the fifth book. They are set in 183o’s, making them lovely historical mysteries. The first book is set eighteen months after losing her husband. She is coming to grips with the abuse that she suffered from his hand and trying to figure out her place in the world now. Lady Darby is fiercely loyal to her family, not afraid to be different in a society that rejects the abnormal, extremely intelligent, and not afraid to speak her mind. This series has everything: a strong woman coming into her own, a love interest, and murder.
