it was ok

Ladies and gentlemen, I now present you my review in pictures:

This is what The Glittering Court is about:

Only, imagine girls instead of horses.
Girls who are trained to become polite ladies so they could be sold to rich gentlemens who would marry them.
Before you turn upon me because I'm comparing girls to horses, let me say that that was my point: to show you how objectified women in this story were.

This is how happy I was when I started this novel:

This is how I felt most of the time while reading:

This is my reaction when I think that the same author who wrote this boring piece of literature also wrote my favorite book series of all time (Vampire Academy):

After finishing a book:

I will not continue with the series even though I liked Mira and Tamsin.

...and I thought no book by Richelle Mead can be worse then Soundless. Boy was I wrong!

Stephanie Oh, I loved Vampire Academy, but they all ended in cliffhangers. I can't wait to read this review!

Hvala ti! :)

Thank you! ;)
Za sada sam pročitala 50 stranica i dobra je, nije dosadna kao što druge recenzije sugeriraju, ali još se to stigne promijeniti...

Vampire Academy is my all time favorite series! I just love the world and the characters...
I wish Richelle Mead would write more books about my favorite characters...

Thank you, I will be as honest as I can in my review. :)


Ayesha Happy reading Irena!!!❤

Elyse Complete entertainment!!!

YOU are a doll!!


Jennifer Seems like the consensus is that Mead's published a few bombs lately. I feel sad for her but I haven't enjoyed her last few books either. Hoping she'll find some inspiration for some great stuff!

You're right, last few books from her weren't good, and the best thing about Bloodlines were characters.
I hope so too...

Thank you, Arianna! :)


Dena (Batch of Books) I wasn't crazy about this book either. I didn't continue with the series. However, I do plan on reading The Vampire Academy. :)

Oh yes, VA would be a shame to miss.
You probably already heard this, but I'll say it anyway: that series gets better with each installment.
And has my all time favorite characters. :D

Amanda ChocolatePages I can see why this review got lots of likes and comments. It's a really imaginative way to write a review.

Yes, I think reviews with gifs are popular here on GR.
