    "Throne of Glass is fantasy-light novel about becoming an assassin in order to bring yourself up from the bottom of society. It's pretty well written for a YA book however, don't expect an amazing storyline or deep characters in this one."

    "Last Christmas, I purchased this series for my 'reluctant reader' of a teen. She has read every volume and loves it. It's a modern day take (and much more about empowerment) on the old Cinderella story, that most teens will love. Meyer is a great author, interesting - and her writing style sharp and exciting. This is a great young adult series. "

    " There is no plot in this book. Characters just kind of walk around doing pointless things because they need to fill pages to get to the next book and sell more books in between. America, our “heroine,” and I use the term loosely, goes back and forth between her “ex” boyfriend Aspen and Prince Maxi-Pad, sometimes within a page of each other. The prince wants her to start picking out furniture, but she keeps cheating with soldier boy and to see how long she can drag this out. She’s got more flip flops than a house of pancakes. Aspen dumped her in the previous book so she wouldn’t live poor with him as a husband, then was drafted into military service and ended up as a palace guard. Then he told her she isn’t fit to be a princess so that she would be wracked with self-doubt and run back to him every time Prince Maxi-Pad does something stupid. Now they smooch on the sly even though that’s considered treason and can get them *ahem severely punished*. Do you understand that? Good, because neither of them do."

    "A Court of Thorns and Roses is an exciting story that is in the same vein as Game of Thrones. It has all the violence, drama, and tension that a medieval story should have plus the fantasy elements mixed in. If your a fan of fantasy worlds with magic and swords you will like A Court of Thorns and Roses."

She thought maybe it'd be like The Princess Diaries. It was not. The main character's name is Izzy. And. It's. A. Girl. Enough said."
