I'm dealing with it. Through anger and comics.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.

I had just about the same impression when I skimmed through it. While I'm sure that there are people who can enjoy the series perfectly fine, I found Celaena to be unbearable (things sort of piled up to her character, especially in the second book, to the point where she felt like a Mary Sue). The premise of the story with the whole "death tournament" situation also didn't quite make sense to me as to its purpose in the whole thing? In any case, I agree that the series never really did it for me for various reasons. Your AU-Celaena has already made a better first impression than the original Celaena. ^-^

You make me pleased. I feel I'm battling a tidal wave of Fandom in disliking the series. (The writer really) it nice to think I'm not alone.

I'll have to admit that the ToG series didn't really do much for me but her other series blew me out of the water. I'm still trying to find another book to match A Court of Mist and Fury from just how good it was. And it ended up helping me a lot with my own personal issues, and reminded me that I'm not alone and that it's okay to ask for help.

Then I shall keep my mouth shut =) I'm glad it helped you.
But I had even more problems with Maas's writing in ACOTAR. I never got to the second book.

Well the first one was kinda bleh IMO. I really enjoy the world but the characters fell somewhat short for me like they did in the throne of glass series. But the second book of ACOTAR was seriously amazing

I know exactly how you feel! It was so young-adult and cliche when I expected some cool fantasy. Huge disappointment T_T

Haha, I love it :D Thank you for saving my time and money, because I kinda wanted to read it... Note to self: never judge a book by its... fanart made by popular artists... I guess.

Maas's books hit a never for me. SO popular SO mangy pretty fan art. But so bad.
I'm even more angry about A Court of Thrones and Roses series.
