Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1) - Sarah J. Maas

Throne Of Glass sounded amazing, I'm a huge fan of strong female characters in young adult novels, but why couldn't I get into it? The characters. The storyline was Assassin's Creed meets The Hunger Games, fused with ye' olden times and a splash of Pretty Woman (apart from the fact that our heroine isn't a prostitute). But the characters fell flat for me. I find it hard to invest in them when I struggle to pronounce their names.

The characters were boring and the magical aspect only confused me further. I loved the lush surrounds of the palace and the premise of the the story, but it just wasn't for me sadly.
