Magan - Me too, Alexa! I was so pleasantly surprised that it was another HUGE hit for me. It’s got me in a fantasy mood now, craving SO MUCH MORE!

Alexa S. - I’m seriously SO thrilled that you enjoyed A Court of Thorns and Roses, M. Isn’t it so, so lovely? I think Sarah has done a brilliant job writing something different from her Throne of Glass series, and I certainly need MORE.

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - YES! So excited to read your thoughts. I just loved this one too. I was so scared it wouldn’t live up to my expectations having recently fallen in love with ToG.
I loved how it really was its own story but you could easily spot BatB too!

Julia Anne @ Peach Print - I’m so happy to hear this book doesn’t disappoint!! I actually have yet to read Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series (I know, I’m terrible), but once I do, I’m definitely going to get cracking on this newest release. A grownup Beauty and the Beast retelling? Count me in!

Yani - I cannot wait for this to be in our local bookstore’s shelves. I want to read it now. I can’t bear the hype anymore. It’s torture.

Why in 5: Wins for The Winner’s Trilogy (So Far)

The Winner’s Trilogy is the best example I can think of when it comes to books I wouldn’t normally pick up but I was completely convinced by the lovely people in this community that I needed to. I’m addicted to contemporary fiction but even I couldn’t deny my intrigue when I saw all the 5-star […]

Bruna - I have to read this! The Winner’s Curse has been sitting on my kindle for a while now, but I’ll pick it up soon. Everyone makes it sound so awesome. All your reasons are just the kind of thing I would pick up a book over.

Alexa S. - I think you did a brilliant job of describing the best things about The Winner’s Trilogy’s first two novels! These are the parts of this series I like best too 🙂

Ann - I’m about ~66% through the book and I am loving every minute of it! I keep wanting to book to expand in my hands. I don’t want it to be over just yet!

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - I love all of these points. I think Marie Rutkowski is brilliant and you did a great job explaining why she’s so great. I feel like we’re on the same page about fantasy, but, like you said, there’s just so much in this book that relateable. And as painful as it is to read such a dark book where she’s not afraid to kill and hurt people, I kind of love that she goes there. I read The Winner’s Crime a while ago and never wrote a review and I think I definitely need to go back and re-read it.
