34 ACOTAR Quotes About Love, Strength, And Darkness

These are our favorite ACOTAR quotes from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. They’re all about love, strength, hope, and definitely not just our obsession with Feyre and Rhysand.

ACOTAR is one of the best fantasy series, written by Sarah J Maas, who also wrote the best-selling Throne of Glass (TOG) series.

It’s a more “adult” story (compared to TOG) and is a Beauty and the Beast retelling with fae, wolves, magic, and war.
