Months after the explosive events in A Court of Wings and Ruin, Feyre, Rhys, and their companions are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve. Yet even the festive atmosphere can’t keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated–scars that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

Yeah I know, everyone’s going crazy for this book.

I did enjoy the first in the series after not really liking Maas’ other series, Throne of Glass, and I already own the second and third book in this series. So we’ll see. I’m prepared to realise that I may have wasted money on this, since apparently the second book retconns the first love interest and Fayre ends up with the guy who was mostly a cocky arrogant asshole, which I don’t really like reading about, but we’ll see.


In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.

No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.

But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.

Everless by Sara Holland

This book has been out for a few months now and I just can’t stop thinking about it. The concept is that time is literally money, and I’ve decided since i can’t stop thinking about it, I would like to read it.
