A Court of Thorns and Roses

If you've been on my blog for a while, you know that I take every opportunity that I can to bring up Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, which for me, revitalized the long-dormant genre of high fantasy in young adult fiction. I couldn't stop gushing about it in my review and I even made a list of similar, older books for people who loved it and wanted more. I seriously don't know why I don't see it around as much as other young adult series. Talk about underrated gems! For those of you who have had the joy of reading it, you'll know that the sequel, Crown of Midnight, comes out in the fall.
What you may not know, because it was literally just announced, is that Sarah J. Maas just sold a second series to Bloomsbury! She announced it on her blog along with a lot of neat information about the series and an ARC giveaway for Crown of Midnight. The new series will be A Court of Thorns and Roses and is a fairytale retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Tam Lin, and East of the Sun, West of the Moon. I adore fairy tales, so I can't wait to see what Sarah does with them. Not to mention, her writing is thrilling and adventurous, so I'm sure if it's near as good as Throne of Glass, it'll be an instant favorite.
