    15 Spicy Fantasy Reads To Devour After Sarah J. Maas's "A Court Of Thorns And Roses"

    If you're looking for books like ACOTAR, with spice, we've got a list for you!

    The world of Sarah J. Maas, the New York Times bestselling author of the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, is all-encompassing for readers. Devotees of the fandom, dubbed the "Maasdom," covet original print covers of her books, dissect fan theories and debate the potential casting for the upcoming Hulu show — it's a world unto itself. On bookstagram, BookTok, and in book review groups devoted to ACOTAR, there's one question asked almost daily: "What can I read next, but with spice?" And by “spice,” they mean adult content. These books vary on the spiciness level and may contain a variety of explicit content, kinks, and other sexual nature. We strongly recommend reviewing any possible content warnings before diving into their pages!
