5. A Court of Wings and Ruin

Just based on Goodreads stating that this book has nearly 700 pages, you might need to spend the entire month just reading A Court of Wings and Ruin, depending on how fast you read. (Of course, there will be some of you looking for the next read within the week, especially if you’re a fan of Sarah J. Maas’ work.)

This third book in the A Court of Thrones and Roses series continues the story of Feyre, and if you look closely at the first three letters of her name, you can probably deduce that the fey have something to do with it. Indeed, she has navigated different faerie courts already, but Goodreads says she’ll have made it back to the Spring Court in this outing. Things haven’t particularly improved, either.

If you’re interested in Maas’ work but don’t want to commit to the longer Throne of Glass series, starting this series might be the better choice, since there are only two books to get through before you can pick up Wings of Ruin. The book drops on May 2, so you may want to look up some summaries if you’ve forgotten what’s gone on in the previous two books.
