The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
I tried to look past the fact that the book revolved around selling women but I just couldn't do it. I get that the women were technically put in a better place but god the girls were all so excited to be sold like jewels. I struggled reading this. I know it was a different world and whatever but I just kept putting myself in their places and I kept getting pissed off. These girls are being trained to be good wives so that some man will put in an offer for them. It's barbaric.
I can usually look past situations that are demeaning and get into a book anyways. A lot of things that bother other people usually don't bother me. I look at the situation and I realized that it's all fake and it's just a story and who cares if there is something demeaning if the story around it is still good. But this one I tried and I couldn't. I think maybe because the selling of women was the sole focus of this book. Therefore I won't be reading the next book. I have zero interest.
