A special thanks to Heather @ The Frozen LibraryΒ for trading me her OwlCrate copy of Sorcery of Thorns after my dogs ate mine! Heather had both the FairyLoot and OwlCrate editions so she traded me one for my copies ofΒ  My Plain Jane and The Hazel Wood!Β  This was my first time trading books using the #BooksForTrade hashtag on twitter and it was a resounding success! (Also Heather is hosting a giveaway so go check it out!!)

I LOVE the cover art for Sorcery of Thorns ❀  It is absolutely gorgeous.

Though, for some reason, the picture of the OwlCrate cover on GoodReads is all washed out, and cropped weird, so it doesn’t do it justice

Here are some much better bookstagram pictures of the OwlCrate edition that actually captures its beauty:

Hmmm, alright I am now 200 words into my review and haven’t actually said anything review-like.Β  No more stalling! I loved the book but I don’t know how to write this review!

I loved all the characters! Elizabeth was awesome and strong and smart and brave.Β  Nathaniel was broody and tortured. Silas was a demon disguised as a cinnamon roll disguised as a demon. And Katrina was mischievous and brilliant.Β  I wish we got a little bit more of Katrina, but oh well, I still loved them all!

I don’t care if its cliche but I love the broody stoic tortured man who turns out to be a sweetheart (aka the “Mr. Darcy” effect) paired with enemies-to-lovers. I don’t care if you can see it coming a mile away, it still gives me butterflies. Certain love stories give me this physical pain (a good pain more of an ache?) that goes from my ribs down through my navel and I don’t know how to describe it, but if a book gives me that feeling I will almost always give it 5 stars. (Please tell me I am not the only one that gets this feeling?!?!)

Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t only love the book for the love story! It has an awesome plot too! IT HAS TALKING BOOKS! And crazed sorcerers and heroes that refuse to give in even when everything seems lost! Its super unique and not like anything I have ever read! I WANT TO LIVE IN THIS WORLD! (did I mention TALKING BOOKS WITH MINDS OF THEIR OWN?!?!)

The ending killed me tho!!!! I need more! If anyone wants to talk about it please PM me on Twitter or Instagram because I need to talk about it but I don’t want to spoil it and AHHHHHHHHHHHH

Anyway! It turns out it wasn’t that hard to write the review once I got off of instagram and just started typing.

This book was awesome! I highly recommend it to any book lover, but I particularly recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy and/or enemies-to-lovers!

  1. I really enjoyed this one myself. Especially the things concerning Silas πŸ™‚ I was a little worried as I had heard mixed things about her first book but this totally made me put that one on my TBR! Glad you liked it and that you got a new copy!

    1. I’m glad you liked it too πŸ˜€ Silas was awesome but I have so many questions from the ending!!! I read the synopsis for her second book and I didn’t like the sound of it as much so I haven’t added it to my TBR yet but I haven’t written it of either. Thanks 😊


  2. Great review – I agree, when a book or character type or plot development makes you feel a certain way, even if it’s not the first time, it’s still a winner to me! By the way, some very pretty book cover displays!

  3. YES YES YES YES! I love your review and I loved this book sosososo much ❀️ I got all rambly and wordy when I finally wrote my review coz I loved everything about it. The characters, the plot, THE BOOKS. Ugh, I was simultaneously super creeped out and also freaking enamoured by the books that could talk and had personalities of their own. It was fabulous! I want more! 😍

  4. AWE YOU’RE WELCOME! It was my first time trading too, so I’m so glad it worked out for both of us! πŸ˜€ And now I feel like I have a new blogger friend! ❀
    Yeah, that's so weird! I was wondering why Goodreads make it look so bad. XD
    And wow those Bookstagram pics make it look so gorgeous! I really liked the purple cover, but blue is my favorite color so I couldn't pass up the sparkly teal pages of the Fairyloot one. XD
    I'm glad you loved it so much though! I've only read like…2 chapters so far? O.O XD Oops. I'm such a slow reader. And I have a LOT of books to get through this month (well it feels like it but it's not any more than what I usually have) and I'm kinda in a slump so that's kinda why I'm so slow and it's not fun. D: I REALLY need to finish this by the 25th though so I can participate in Bookmarked Club's live stream without getting spoiled. XD But I will be sure to let people know what I think when I finally finished it! πŸ˜›

    1. Yay! That makes me even happier that it worked πŸ˜€ I love making new blogger friends ❀
      Blue is my favorite color too and I love the sprayed edges of the one you kept, but I think I wanted the purple one just because that is the one I had and then lost πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I know it doesn't make a ton of sense. I could have just gone and gotten a new copy from my store too but I really wanted the one that I had had.

      Slumps suck! Is it too much to hope for that this book pulls you out? (I don't want to jinx it!) I liked the beginning but it took me a few days to get through the first 5 ish chapters and then I got hooked and finished the rest of it in one night πŸ˜‚ (I'm not a fast reader either, I finished it at like 3 am πŸ˜‚ ) Good luck with all your reading and I hope you like them all πŸ™‚ I look forward to seeing your review ❀

      1. Yeah I totally understand wanting to keep the one you had! I’m glad I decided to keep the Fairyloot one so I could give it to you. XD
        Well I think my slump is due to my brain just being tired cuz I’ve been busy lately and my mental health hasn’t been the best. And for some stupid reason it’s STILL TOO HOT here. XD The schools here started today and I’m just like “okay it should be fall now” I want to wear sweaters again I hate the heat. XD XD
        Hmm, I usually don’t binge books but I might have to for this one if I want to get it done by next week. I hope I like it!

  5. YESSS. I loved this book! I love that Owlcrate cover. Okay, confession, I know I said I’ve been wary of book subscription boxes, but I totally joined Owlcrate the other day. I’m going to try it for a few months and see how I like it. I’m so glad you were able to get a copy of this after your dog ate yours! ❀

  6. I love this book too! For all the reasons you said. It was all around fantastic and I love how atmospheric the writing is. I could practically smell the dusty shelves and tomes.
