[ Edit (12/2020): This review was first posted years ago, and my thoughts on this series have changed since then. I want to reread it before rewriting this review, but in the meantime I want to point out that this series includes harmful representation and lacks diversity in it’s cast of characters. While I still enjoy the books, these issues cannot be ignored. Hopefully I’ll be updating this review soon, but until then, I’ll be adding this disclaimer to all of my ACOTAR reviews and adjusting my rating. Also, this book on its own, in hindsight, was just not very good (bad enough that I lowered it even more than I lowered it before).]
[ UPDATE 2019: I’ve edited this review since my initial posting, dropping the rating from a 4.5 to a 3 (and that’s me being nice). The more I think about this book, the more I realized how disappointing it is, and how unnecessary it feels. It was a money grab disguised as fan service. ]
Overall: 2/5 Stars
Plot and Themes: 2/5
Awesomeness Factor: 1/5
Review in a Nutshell:
A Court of Frost and Starlight is a fluffy, quick read that sets up the next book in the universe. It’s basically a filler christmas fanfic.
