Throne of Glass

The Assassin and the Princess - Sarah J. Maas I don't know what other people see in this book that I don't, but I'm a couple chapters in and just can't take it anymore. The writing is sloppy (so! many! exclamation! points!), and the main character disgusts me. I'm sorry, you've spent how long slaving in salt mines, but when you're dragged out of them to go to your possible death and/or further torture, all you can think about is how beautiful you used to be and how grimy you are now, and you're spending your time evaluating the relative attractiveness of the men? What?Nope. Can't do it. I was so looking forward to this one too. *sigh*
