REACT: Throne of Glass TV Series

Unpopular Opinion: I hate the Throne of Glass series with passion. I just hate how it started really strong, very empowering to girls, and then we regressed to a reverse harem situation. Celaena, the protagonist, hops from one boy to another and it’s practically a James Bond situation. It is the worst.

Maybe you could argue that she is being feminist about being sex positive and going after the boys she like, and there’s nothing wrong with going after what you want. But every book is dedicated to one boy that could be shipped with Celaena until the next book tears that ship down. It feels like we’re building one relationship up only to tear it down at the following book in the series and it’s so counterproductive. I hate it so much.

And now we’re having a TV Series adaptation of it. Great.
