Anyone read Graceling by Kristine Cashore?

Great fantasy trilogy.

I finished reading Armageddon's Children just last week (I bought it ages ago, but kept postponing the reading), and I don't know if I want to check out more Terry Brooks novels from the Shannara series. This one was a prequel so mostly it served as a set up and introduction for some characters, but the writing style was so, so flat and dull. The story itself doesn't feel that original but I could have been fine with it, it's the way the characters were treated as little more than clichés and the boring descriptions and dialogues that turned me off.

I'm now reading the second book in the Library of the Dead series by Glenn Cooper (Book of Souls) - it's most of a historical thriller, but I think it qualifies as fantasy, too. The characters are very cliched, too, and the story has been predictable in points, but the author does a decent job in keeping the reader's attention alive and so far both the first and second book have proven to be page-turners, even with all their flaws.

^ Never read Beastly... I did watch the movie and thought that it was poorly made and poorly acted, imo.

Is the book better or different than the movie?

Never read the book either or even watched the movie.
