The Assassin’s Blade: The Throne of Glass Novellas – Sarah J. Maas
Rating: That is no Moon! (Ok, 3 Moons- keep reading)
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Ok, so here’s the deal. I tried to read this book because my wife and daughter love the series so much. They both told me I wouldn’t like it- and dagnabbit they were right.
I really can’t tell you why I didn’t like it, it is well written and well thought out. But I got about fifty pages in and at that point I just didn’t care what happened. In short the book failed to grab my attention in fifty pages, and I have a 2000 page book I’m trying to finish and review by the end of the year.
So here is where we get to the conflicting ratings. By my scale, if I can’t finish a book it gets no Moons. But 3 Moons is the rating for a good enough book if there is nothing better to read. Well, I had something better to read… which made me stop reading this. Maybe I’ll come back to this someday, part of me wants to do that, and if I do I’ll write another review. But I can’t give a dishonest review in the interim.
The take away here is that my wife and daughter know me better than I know myself.
