The Glittering Court - Richelle Mead

I started this book as a young woman I finished old and wrinkled, it was that long and dull. I want my youth back ! I almost quit it so many times. I didn't, I held on because I knew she had some secret BOOM moment coming that would make all the nodding off and forced reading worth it. No, it was 400 pages of slow conversations, inner dialogs, dressing and hair, boring meetings and even more boring problems. I thought the last 40 pages were picking up. Gods that sounds so sad. Well I thought they were picking up but I was foolish again. It built up to a huge semi better than bland so obvious resolution. I know you're thinking, wow that sounds boring. YES it was ! 400 pages that could have easily fit into 75 pages and not missed a bit of the story. I never liked the spoiled Countess, the MC, never admired her stupid choices, or attitude.
What was the book about ? A rich Countess doesn't want to marry her cousin to save her class standing so she runs away and sells herself to a group that will train her to be an good upper class wife in the new world sold to the highest bidder. She decides not to follow those rules and fall fro another. Then she must lower herself even lower and do actual labor.

I will not be reading anymore in this series

Finally something happens, only to stall back to the old talk about it, think about it, but really do nothing that had been the first 200 pages. It could have easily been cut down to 100 pages and this reader wouldn't have missed anything. Too much talking and mental rehashing here, the second half better get moving I want to finish this before I'm 100 years old !

Is the pacing of this story is so slow or is it just me ? I swear it has taken a week to get to this point. The books not boring but S.L.O.W. I can't seem to sit for more than 20 minutes and read it before falling asleep or wandering off- I hope something picks up soon or I may (insert whiny tone) never finish

Review: Shadow Kiss: A Vampire Academy Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead, Leigh Dragoon, and Emma Vieceli
Shadow Kiss: A Graphic Novel (Vampire Academy) by Richelle Mead (2013-12-31) - Richelle Mead

 

More from the seniors at St Vladmir's Academy. I liked that Rose and her mom came to a somewhat of a truce. There was more action and less romance in this one, and I liked it better because of that. The author has no trouble with killing main side characters, so don't get attached to any of them.
