I didn't realize the book was a novella but I loved it all the same. I was honestly a little worried that Sara J. Maas was going to stretch a series that had already "ended", but this little book was a perfect addition that gave us a look into their normal lives when they weren't stopping doomsday or a world war. It made me nostalgic because of all the references from the previous books and the ending was so happy it made me cry! I recommend this book to everyone who has read the series or is a fan of Sara J. Maas.

I read this for the "a book with a 6-word title" part of my 2018 reading challenge. I loved it, it's a perfect continuation of the series.

This book is strongly reminiscent to the Christmas specials found in popular TV shows. Not particularly plot driven or character building, but refreshing and well written all the same.

I really enjoyed this book and all of the series. Keep up the good work.

Another addition to this amazing series- it pulled me right back in and just gave me so much enjoyment reading it. Half of me wishes more had happened but the other half is just happy to read about the characters trying to settle into this life.

It was a good book and I was satisfied while reading it

I suppose I didn't realize that this was a novella going in. I was a little disappointed when I picked up this rather slim book, but only because I wanted more! This is a refreshing look into the Winter Solstice at the Night Court, as the characters focus on rebuilding after the war--physically and emotionally. Very little happens plot-wise, but Maas does set some story lines up for the future. Her writing is satisfying as ever, and this book renewed my interest in the characters and world. Though I've gotta say, Maas reaaally overuses the phrase "by way of greeting." Seriously. Come up with something else! All in all, the book is well worth your time--especially since it's such a quick read!

Similar to TV shows like Downton Abby, this is the Christmas special book to the Court of Thorns and Roses series. Set at Winter Soltice with celebration and gift giving, we are sent back to check on our heroes, heroines, villians, and others to see how they are faring. That's about it. No action, no drama, and maybe a plot. Basically, a filler to the next book. Nice, but not exciting.

I don’t understand why this novella exists. Any work of fiction, from short story to epic, needs a beginning, middle and end. A Court of Frost and Starlight fails to have even the basic structure that would render it a complete story. There’s no climax, no central conflict, barely even a semblance of non-superfluous character development. A few inconsequential conversations are had, Sarah trots out her usual litany of empty platitudes, and then the novella ends. If there’s a silver lining to A Court of Frost and Starlight, it’s that the whole thing is “only” 200-odd pages. That’s 200 pages in which essentially nothing happens but seeing as Sarah gets wordier and wordier with every publication, you know it could get even more mind-numbingly boring than it already is. With the rapid pace at which Maas is churning out at least two huge novels a year, it’s not surprising that editing has been completely tossed out the window. Overall, this book was horrible, and a waste of time. I highly recommend skipping this book altogether since it does nothing for the plot. Rating – 1/5.

What. A. Story. I truly love her writing and am never disappointed. Here, we have a novella/bridge of sorts, between the three "A court of" books and the next three to come. I was hooked from the first page and left enthralled at the last, where it ended with the heartbreaking excerpt for the next book. It saddens me to see that Feyre and Rhysand's story has come to an end, but it is one that I am deeply content with. I do have to say, this is very "fan-fiction-y" for all the fans out there, so read on, but tread with care! To all the dreamers out there - this is only the beginning. 5/5 stars

I absolutely loved this book! While it is a novella and far shorter than the previous books, I still found it completely enjoyable. I loved being able to see the Inner Circle interact together (especially under far less stress than the previous books). The book doesn't necessarily add anything plot wise but it does add some small details that Sarah may pursue in the next series. Overall I found this a quick, fun, and enjoyable read and highly recommend fans of the ACOTAR series pick up and read.
