YMMV.

I really would like to find a fantasy series besides Game of Thrones (I have nothing against it, but the TV series removes all surprises— at least for book 1).
I had a similar struggle with Gardens. It does get better if you can manage to slog thru. I'm up to Book 5 now. I've been spacing them out a good bit because they do require more attention than most fantasy.

Currently working on Wheel of Time book 12. I didn't re-read any of the series so I'm occasionally having to find my bearings but I'm pleasantly surprised at how quickly I've gotten pulled in. Between the long gap (which I made longer by deciding to wait until book 14 was out in paperback) and Sanderson stepping in, I just didn't know what to expect.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
