The Glittering Court

We rated this book:


The Glittering Court was an entertaining read that fell just a little bit short. The story was slow and in places, dragged way too much. Mead’s characters also lacked their signature charm that readers have grown to love. That’s not to say the book was completely useless. I enjoyed the world and the fashion; but if truth be told it all reminded me of a less flattering version of The Selection Series by Kiera Cass.

The story follows a noble woman who ends up posing as her maid in order to escape her life. A life where she’d be under the thumb of somebody else for the rest of her life. Once she changes her name to Adelaide, things get complicated. Not only does she have to act like she doesn’t know how to be a lady of upbringing, she has to find a way to help out Cedric. Cedric is the boy and Adelaide’s main love interest. However, I didn’t feel any real love or passion between the two. Their story was just kind of bland. There will be three books in all in the series, each following a different girl. Although this wasn’t a favorite of Mead’s, I think readers will enjoy it nonetheless.
