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

  The Glittering Court, Book 2

I Picked Up This Book Because: Next in the series.

The Story:

This book, much like The Glittering Court from what I can remember, seem to be several stories wound up and bunched together as one. And I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, it just makes it hard for me to write a review. Factor in that most of this was listened to while driving so notes couldn’t be made. I’ll just use my Score Card to talk about this in general.

Writing: Excellent. So many storylines but all were clear and concise. Intricate and relatable. I wanted to root for Mira and I’m sorry how some of it ended. Mira was talented in being in the right place at the right time.
Forward Motion: This story was fast paced but never left the reader behind or lost in all the action.
Overall Interest: I couldn’t wait to finish it. I listened to a good 3 hours of the story while baking Saturday morning instead of my usual mindless TV.
Length of Reading Time: Took about 8 days for 400+ pages. Not too bad.
Re-read-ability: I doubt I will revisit this series. It’s excellent however once seems to be enough.
