    Prepare to be enthralled by an utterly charming romantic arc, a thoughtful exploration of attraction, consent, and love, and a sparkling prose style that practically dances off the page. My heart needed this feminist fairy tale and I bet yours does too. ...

    There have been many times when I've disagreed with Kirkus reviews, but whoever wrote the review for this book and said: "This winsome debut novel goes down like a vegan, gluten-free cupcake: sweet and good for you but entirely lacking in satisfying decadence." nailed it. Heart...

    3.5 stars. Heart of Thorns was exactly the kind of Fantasy book that I love. And while I found especially the first half of it very slow, there's nothing about it that I actively disliked. This book has incredible world building and for me it's the thing that stands out the most. Th...

    I've already read a manuscript of BLACK ROSE, and it's a great adventure, full of beautiful insights and heartbreaking revelations. I can't wait to see the final draft and the other books in the series. ...

    this review + others can be found over on my blog! --- I loved this book! Though, frankly, it might have to do with Quin, but I'll get there. In the grand scheme of things, Heart of Thorns isn't entirely different from most other fantasy books. What does make it stand out is that ...

    2.5 stars. I was given access to a free digital ARC of this text through work as an #indigoemployee in exchange for an honest review. It was presented to me as earth shattering new feminist fantasy... and it was just your standard YA fantasy. All of which, post-Tamora Pierce, tends...

    ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Ok for me this was 2.5 stars but I think I've been prejudiced by the travesty that was chapter 53. The book probably deserves 3 stars so I've rounded up. I'm not going to rehash the blurb here. This is a very linear stor...

    Heart of Thorns is a daring, fun and hilarious new fantasy novel that I finished in less than a day. The plots follows the flight of ex-huntress Mia Rose and her reluctant, new husband Prince Quin following their interrupted nuptials. Mia's world has been turned upside down because she...

    ARC kindly provided by Edelweiss. All right. Okay. So... I'm still really torn on my opinion on this one. There were some good things that I really liked, but a couple of things really didn't work for me. The good - A strong female protagonist that doesn't need anyone to prote...

    I have read many fantasy books advertised as feminist. But in most cases, that?s all it is, advertisement. Imagine my joy though, when I was halfway into Heart of Thorns and realized that, for once, the advertisement was true. "What if we women joined forces and rose up against ou...

    I initially gave this book 3.5 stars but after absorbing this book a bit more I revised my rating to 2 stars and that is because I had a really big issue with a certain scene in the book. Overall I would have to say that Heart of Thorns was an enjoyable read. I look forward to the ...
