A Release Day Guest Post & Giveaway From Sarah J. Maas

It’s no secret I’m a big fan of Sarah J. Maas — the author AND the person. She’s the author who made me fall in love with fantasy and opened this whole new world to me. I mean, Throne of Glass holds the spot for my current favorite series and, after reading A Court of Thorns and Roses earlier this year, I have a GOOD feeling it’s going to be competing with the Throne of Glass series. And as a person?  She is amazing. So kind and generous and genuine. So good to her fans. SO SO good to them. And if you’ve ever seen her in action (possibly with her bff Susan Dennard — oh the two of them!) she is so funny and a damn good time!

So, I can’t tell you how honored I am to have her on the blog on the release day of A Court of Thorns and Roses. She’s so deserving of the praise and love for her books and I hope you all fall in love with this latest series from her like I did (you can check out my thoughts here).
 So now I’m going to let Sarah take it away and I’m going to warn you…this post made some tears pay a visit to my face!

I’ve been thinking for some time now about what I’ll say today, what I’ll write about to properly convey my feelings now that A Court of Thorns and Roses is officially out in the world. I wrote the first draft of this book way back in 2009—before I ever sold Throne of Glass—and then let it collect proverbial dust on my computer for years. But during those years, I’d open up that word document—not to edit or tweak, but just to reread, to visit these characters that had somehow stolen a piece of my heart, and who wouldn’t let me forget it.

What A Court of Thorns & Roses is about:

“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.”

10 Reasons To Save The Date For ACOTAR:

1. It’s by Sarah J. Maas!!! No brainer.
2. There is a MAP in it.

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset
3. For the first time in my life I AM TOTALLY INTO THE FAE. If anyone could make me love them I had NO DOUBTS it was Sarah who could do it.
4. It’s sexy. NO LIKE REALLY SEXY YOU HAVE NO IDEA. *fans self* I CAN’T EVEN.
5. The world is SO fabulous. I just can’t wait to get even DEEPER into it. It’s so FASCINATING.


6. LUCIEN. He makes me laugh and he is SO GREAT.


7. Sarah creates just such FULL characters. I never thought I could care about anyone like I do the Throne of Glass series characters but the characters of ACOTAR are so ALIVE and complex. I just love them so much already. Her ability to bring characters to life are unparalleled. You need to meet Feyre, Tamlin, Lucien, Rhys, Alis and more!!


8. So many “HOLY CRAP” moments. One time I yelled obscenities very loudly. TWISTS, TURNS & PULSE-RACING MOMENTS.


9. Feyre is BAD ASS. And it’s not even like she is this total badass. (IF that makes sense). She’s a normal girl but she uses her BRAINS and the “street smart” she acquires from the things life has thrown her way. She’s vulnerable because she’s human but the girl is smart and it makes her badass.


10. THERE IS NO CLIFFHANGER!! You end knowing there’s SO MUCH that is going to happen in the future (I can’t even predict where this series will go) but I was able to breathe because things were wrapped enough not to kill me. (BUT OH I STILL LONG FOR BOOK 2).

 

BONUS: BECAUSE YOU WILL GET TO FIND OUT WHAT THE MASKS ARE ALL ABOUT

Who Should Save The Date: Sarah J. Maas fans, people who weren’t fans of Throne of Glass (I really do think you should give her a second chance because I think as far as first books in a series goes this one was stronger than ToG), fantasy fans

 

A Sneak Peek: “We mortals no longer kept gods to worship, but if I had known their lost names, I would have prayed to them. All of them.”

Be on the lookout for my FULL review closer to the release date where I will flesh out my thoughts a little more!
