Today’s post is a two-part one: first, a reread mini-review, and second, a discussion! I’d really love your input on this topic, so please leave a comment with your experiences!
Of course, the writing isn’t what her later writing has proven itself to be as she improves, but the depiction of a relationship that’s less than it seems, as well as the fierce bravery and wit that Feyre exhibits in the final third of the story? I love it. I love wild, broken little Rhysand and everything he is for her. I love Lucien’s wit and snark, and the way, when push comes to shove, he proves his friendship and loyalty (to a fault, sometimes). I love meeting all of the other fae – especially gossip-y little Suri, dishing out tea all over the place – and I love the entire world of Prythian, with its courts and struggles and in-fighting and secrets.
I’m probably never going to write a full review for this book, because by this point, I’d just be fangirling for ages about a book most of you have already read, but I wanted to finally put words on paper for how utterly grateful I am that this series gave me back something that I had missed so tremendously.
Have you ever read a book that impacted you so deeply that it wasn’t even about the story, but about what the book meant to you in that time frame?
For example, maybe you picked up a book about healing from assault right when you needed the strength to tell a loved one about a situation you faced. Maybe you were questioning your sexuality, and the right story fell into your lap that gave you your first opportunity to say, “That’s me! That’s what I’ve been trying to say!”
Whatever your experience might be, I would love to hear about it. If you don’t feel comfortable going into details, you can just say the name of the book, or you can be as vague or specific as you like. And if you just want to chat privately about it, my contact box, DMs, etc., are always open. <3 I won’t ever judge or belittle your experiences – I just want to know if anyone else has those books that mean SO MUCH to them just because they were exactly the books you needed at that moment.
