waiting on wednesday: a court of thornes and roses

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature over at Breaking the Spine where we feature an anticipated release each week.

This week's pick: A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J Maas
find it on goodreads
Release Date: May 5

synopsis: A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore.

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.

Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!

I've been saving this one because it is truly one of my most anticipated books of the entire year! I love Sara J Maas so much, and I absolutely cannot wait to see what this new series holds. Beauty and the Beast mixed with faerie lore? Yes PLEASE! Can it be May 5 already? I feel like so many people have already read this because there were a lot of ARCs floating around, so I really need for this book to be in my hands now.
