I’m reading Throne of Glass. Please send more chocolate.

Sometimes, I wonder if I live in a parallel book universe and so the super popular books I read are not the super popular books everyone else read. Because this book is terrible.

I am just under a hundred pages into Throne of Glass, and if this wasn’t a buddy read with the lovely Tash whom I do not want to disappoint (and a library book), I’d have cut out the pages to make small, angry-looking origami animals.

But I don’t want to have to pay the library’s book damage fine, and I don’t want to disappoint Tash, so instead, I made a Bingo game. (Because Bingo is safer than drinking, kids.)

You too can play along at home.

Just 300 pages to go.

I am viciously devouring a lot of chocolate right now. Please send more.

  1. You will be getting an essay style email on the first half this weekend. It isn’t going to pretty. Oddly enough I am enjoying our comments on it more than the book!

  2. Whew! So glad I’m not the only reader who had this reaction. I tried really hard to like it, especially since the series has some of the best covers in YA lit, but in the end I found the main character too self-absorbed. Like girl, you’re an assassin. You should be getting up to action and espionage, not talking about books and how shiny your hair is. 😐 I didn’t even make it 1/3 of the way through.

  5. Lol, I actually liked the book. Just not enough to buy another one. I liked how she was confident (I mean that’s where I took that) rather than the ever-present self-deprecation that’s so popular in YA heroines. Yeah, her laziness got on my nerves along with the fact that there wasn’t any real fighting in the book, but I figured that was just me being so absorbed in the character I’m writing in my own book right now. I’m weird, though. I love books other people hate and hate books people love and then get embarrassed about it like reading isn’t a totally subjective pastime that people are allowed to have wildly different opinions about. It’s gonna be fun when I start getting reviews on my own writing…haha!

Chirp! What do you think?
