-S P O I L E R S-
Sooooo....this book...THIS BOOK. I think I can safely say it has been one of my favourite books so far this year. Sorcery of Thorns isn't what I'd call extraordinary... It doesn't have a complex world-building or super crazy plot twists but it's a beautifully written book with lovable characters, lots of heart ( as my friend Farha @theanatomyofabookworm puts it) and it's sooo entertaining! And honestly sometimes that's all I need in a book ❤️ a book that leaves me smiling and feeling good.

1. THE CHARACTERS -
Every single character is so unique and stands out in the book. I loved how the author made me care about the characters just pages after meeting them, especially Nathaniel! His sass and charm makes him stand out wonderfully and needless to say he's now one of my book boyfriends!
Elisabeth is a wonderful MC and I was rooting for her the whole time. But Silas has to be my favourite...I have a thing for complex characters and morally grey characters are so interesting to read about! The ending implying that Silas is back had me squealing!!
And Ashcroft makes for a great villain. We all love to hate him!
2. THE DIALOGUES-
Nathaniel has the best dialogues, hands down. He has the sassiest, funniest and quirky lines that made me howl with laughter. Also the banter between him and Elisabeth was the BESTEST. I would read a book full of just the two arguing about everyday things lol.
Also Silas has the most thought provoking dialogues and was just plain brilliant.
3. THE WRITING STYLE
It's so beautiful... the way the book is written. There are so many quotes I absolutely loved. My favourite was the one I added in yesterday's post. Like I said, this book is so full of heart and some quotes just made me feel so full?
4. THE PLOT
It's not too complex like most fantasy novels, it's fun filled and entertaining and flows so well! I loved that we knew the villain not far from the start itself. Generally the bad guy is revealed at the very end but here we have the old fashioned villain who the MC knows is the villain and has to fight against.
