Teaser Tuesday #4: A Court of Thorns and Roses


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Purple Booker that allows you to share a few sentences from the book you're currently reading. Don't include spoilers!


My Teaser today is from A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J. Maas.  

For context: It's loosely based on Beauty and the Beast, and the following conversation is between Tamlin and Feyre, after she's been captured and taken to his manor house. He's Fae, she's human. And at this point they're still warming up to each other. 
Note: The Bogge is a vicious, beastly, creature thing ;) 





Unfortunately, I'm not really enjoying this book so far. I just can't buy into the world, and the events/incidents seem too minimized.   





                                 Have you read ACOTAR? What are you "teasering" today?

  3. Oh bummer! I love this series! Ironically her other Throne of Glass books I couldn't get into whatsoever either. Sad that you aren't enjoying this one. I still need to read book 2, which I heard was a lot better!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Ah I know! Glad you enjoyed it though! Oh shame, I actually prefer the ToG series....I think. I kinda have a love-hate thing with Maas! Lol.
      Yeah, I heard Book 2 was better too, so I'll definitely go on to read that next.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I really liked this book but I hated the sequel, so I can kind of see where you're coming from. The characters didn't do it for me.

    1. I'm glad you did! I'm definitely going to read the sequel, so I'll be visiting your review of it again - closer to the time - and then I'll see your points :)
      My main issue with this book is Tamlin. I really don't like him :(

  7. Ah! Dont give up on it just yet! It definitely gets better toward the end, and the second book is truly fantastic! ... at least I think so lol. But I do get what you mean, the beginning isn't really that realistic but ... but .... please keep reading. (can you tell this is one of my favourite books lol)

  8. I didn't like this book so don't feel bad (either way). It got rape-y towards the end and I couldn't get over that. Oh well! Hopefully you enjoy it overall. =)

    1. WHEW! Then I'm not alone ;) Lol.
      Yeah, the end got a bit questionable, but to be honest, my issue is with Tamlin, not Rhys.

  9. This is a great teaser for the book, but it's unfortunate you don't like it :(:( It does get better though!!
