Fae Friday – A Jealous Streak

Happy Fae Friday everyone! I hope everyone had a good week, and may the weekend be even better. I should be writing a paper right now, but instead I’m blogging! Sometimes I wish I could just submit my blog posts and get credit…

Anyway, Fae Friday is hosted by Kristy @ Caffeinated Fae, and you can find all future prompts on her blog! All you gotta do is link back to her page and have fun with the prompt! Don’t forget to use #FaeFriday on your socials, so we can all find each other’s posts! Here is this week’s prompt: jealous

“The fae are known to have a jealous streak which is why the prompt this week is: What is a book has jealousy as a main theme?”

A Court of Mist and Fury book cover

A Court of Mist and Fury

By Sarah J. Maas

Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

In all honesty, I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that truly had jealousy as its main theme. But, when I read the prompt I did almost immediately think of A Court of Mist and Fury. I feel like in this book, everyone was jealous of everyone, but they were pretty decent at hiding it. Except for Tamlin. I’ve been wanting to do a reread of this series (mostly just so I can read this book again), but first I really need to finish my paper. And also my thesis… Basically, I’m jealous of everyone who has time to read right now! How fitting, haha.

That’s it for this Fae Friday! Do you often read books in which jealousy is an obvious theme? I try to stay away from these most of the time… The angst always gets to me!
