A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas Book Review

If you are in the mood for fae than I got a book for you. I recently finished reading A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. This is the third book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses. If you haven’t read the first book, I have a book review for you to check out. This third and final book kept me at my seat every step of the way.

A Court of Wings and Ruin brings us back to the world of Pythian and continues the events from A Court of Mist and Fury. In this book, Feyre returns to the Spring Court and has to pretend she is in love with Tamlin. While pretending to be in love with Tamlin, Feyre must collect information in order to bring down King Hybern and Tamlin’s Spring Court in order to win the war against evil and save those she loves the most. But, will playing this dangerous game of deception go well? How much Feyre has to go before losing herself?


This book was a roller coaster of emotions. I couldn’t stop reading it and in fact, when I finished it a few days ago I noticed that my clock read 2’o clock in the morning. Even though Sarah J. Maas already built the whole fairy world in ACOMAF, she wasn’t done and had more to add. I appreciated seeing new characters and the other part of the world I didn’t get to see.

As for the characters, I enjoyed seeing how much Feyre change throughout the whole trilogy. I enjoyed seeing how Feyre moved from her traumas and become stronger. She actually is now a force to be reckoned with. Watch out Tamlin.

Another part of the book that I enjoyed is the action and war scenes. I liked most of the fight action sequences between the characters. Just the let you know that the book mostly focuses on going to war and being in the war. I enjoyed that the war wasn’t glorified but the book should it’s ugly side and show how much it affects the characters.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and Sarah J. Maas didn’t disappoint me in any way. And I am also looking for to reading more from her and might even give Throne of Glass a try. Well, that is my review. If you are interested in picking it up I have the links below and until next time keep on reading.

Serena by Ron Rash Book Review

Serena by Ron Rash

I have an interesting story about a book I just read. Well originally before I read this book I picked it up thinking it was the book for a movie called Age of Adaline but got the names mixed up with a different movie called Serena: A Novel. When I got the book Serena and started reading it, I got a weird vibe. This isn’t right, I thought this is about a girl who lives and doesn’t age, I thought. I checked the synopsis which was a totally different synopsis. I also went to check out the movie trailer and saw it was a completely different movie. Luckily despite my confusion, Serena did look rather inviting so I decided to read it.

The book Serena: A Novel is takes place in 1929 which where the Great Depression is starting and centers around a newlywed couple Pemberton and his wife Serena. This couple goes to North Carolina to run their lumber business and strive to make history and create a lumber business empire. Pemberton is business savvy sense and his wife who is his strong, clever, beautiful, ambitious partner. The couple makes a powerful duo and will do whatever it takes to stay on top. The couple so set in their dreams that will even kill anyone who will step in their path of success.
On the rise of the success, Serena gets pregnant and Pemberton’s ex-girlfriend Rachel comes to work at his lumber business as a dishwasher. But Rachel also is the mother of his child name Jacob. Serena suddenly, loses her baby and soon decides to kill the child of the Rachel and her too. Pemberton who finds out also secretly helps out Rachel and her son to get away. Pemberton is also force to keep this all a secret from Serena’s anger and scheme. Will Serena get her way?

Serena: A Novel was worth the read despite my confusion. The book is a great example of what an evil villain looks like. Someone that looks harmless but deadly on the inside. Serena is just downright crazy but also can be the smartest person as well. In throughout the book before Serena started showing her bad side, I thought she was strong and independent and just knows how to take charge at a business where men dominated. I also like the whole duo of Pemberton and Serena make the perfect team in scheming and I laugh whenever they can climb on top. There was also interesting side characters that help move the story along as well. I totally will read this again if I had the chance and I know you guess would enjoy it. I can’t wait to see the movie as well which is starting Jennifer Lawrence who plays Serena. Until then keep on reading.

What do you do when what you draw on paper comes to life? What happens when fairy tale monsters are larger than life or should I say real life? Well in the world Willow Tate, things got more interesting than the drawings on her paper. Trolls in the Hamptons: A Willow Tate Novel is a thrilling story that holds laughs along the way. A story that has a mixture of imaginations, chaos, and trolls.

In the book Trolls in the Hamptons: A Willow Tate Novelwhich is the first book in the Willow Tate series, we meet Willow Tate. Willow Tate is a well-known graphic novelist who lives in an apartment in Manhattan and due to her success, she can live there rent free. She has a great life, food, friends who don’t ever call, and boyfriend who is more of a fling. Life is good for Willow.


Willow Tate sitting at her desk working on her next series starts brainstorming for ideas. Suddenly, poof her big idea turns into a great story about a big red troll. Willow Tate is a genius and she could wait to tell her literary agent. Suddenly, Willow hears a commotion from outside. Willow looks out the window there is chaos. Outside looks like an accident and traffic and people panicking all over. What could be the cause of this mess? Willow Tate takes a look and it’s her infamous big red troll running around.

After Willow Tate discovers her troll has come to life he goes around appearing all over the place. Everywhere Willow goes there is a troll. Willow is afraid that she going crazy and not sure what to do. Suddenly, she meets the handsome dashing Agent Grant from an agency called the Department of Unexplained Events and finds out she isn’t out of her mind. Agent Grant explains to her that opened a hole in the universe and opened the door to this other world where fantasy creatures come from. This door had let the troll in and no he is causing chaos. After this Agent Grant helps Willow find out who she is and the mystery of the world she never knew existed. Willow also is left to solve some disturbed mysterious in the story.

The story is unique and very imaginative. The way the author wrote Trolls in the Hamptons with a combination of comedy, fantasy, and mystery. I also found certain parts really funny and I liked the fantasy elements. I also like how the troll in the story isn’t one dimensional and has a personality. One part of him is like a devious child who likes getting into trouble but another side of him is gentle and protective. I give the story four stars and would recommend it to anyone. If you want to read the book the links are below and until my next review keep on reading.
