Summer Blog Challenge – Day 23

Day 23 – Your Favourite Quote from Your Favourite Book

This is tough because I don’t know what my favourite book is. It could be A Court of Mist and Fury or it could be The Great Gatsby or it could be The Lord of the Rings.

I really had to mull this one over. But I got there. Eventually.

A Court of Wings and Ruin – A Review

So we’ve reached the final book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. It’s been a wild ride of emotion and pain but we’ve loved every moment of it.

Let’s Talk About: Tamlin

One of the topics that appear regularly is Tamlin and there are mixed feelings about the character on both sides. I feel the need to talk about him.

Tamlin, High Lord of the Spring Court, is a topic that needs to be discussed.

In ACOTAR, most of the readers warm up to Tamlin pretty quickly and are happy to see Feyre get together with him and to get her fairytale ending. I know that I was the first time, maybe even the second time that I read the first book. However, by the third time I read the book and I really started to think about Tamlin’s character I started to see the flaws that were so apparent from the beginning. Is Tamlin really the tragic hero of the series? It feels like he may actually be, set up to collapse from the beginning. Let’s take a look; Continue reading “Let’s Talk About: Tamlin”
