Q: Birthday Wishes — Blow out the candles and imagine what character could pop out of your cake…who is it and what book are they from??


I assume this question is asking about the fictional character I desire romantically, because honestly, who cares who I want to sit down to tea with?

So, without further ado, the characters I would love to romantically involve myself with are:

1) Tris Prior (Divergent)
2) Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)

and probably a lot more, but those are the only ones on the top of my head.

Review: Stunning by Sara Shepard

This book truly convinced me that Pretty Little Liars is far superior to The Lying Game. Sorry, Sara. I was originally rooting for The Lying Game, being as it was the underdog, but Pretty Little Liars just towers over its opponent.

Shepard does the quadro-narration thing very well. It seems like a difficult thing to do, but she pulls it off, and she does it well. I don't ever confuse the girls with one another, which often happens in books with multiple narrators. (I heard that Dearly, Departed is narrated by five different people, which I'm sure is a colossal fail.)

The struggles the girls face are quasi-unrealistic, but Shepard write them like they could happen to anyone. The girls are going through much more difficult things than they were at the beginning of the series. Shepard keeps upping the stakes, and I'm not disappointed.

I can't wait for the last book in the Pretty Little Liars series!


FIVE OWLS!

Q: If you could “unread” a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?



If I could "unread" a book . . . Gah, there are so many.
Let me make a list for you.


Books I Would "Unread"


  1. THREE CUPS OF TEA. That book hurt me, in a lot of ways. My review will explain the rest.
  2. Pastwatch, by Orson Scott Card. Sucked. Just sucked.
  3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson. Soooooo slooooooow. Took forever to get to the good stuff, of which there wasn't much.
  4. Fallen, by Lauren Kate. Even though the covers are SO GORGEOUS (SO GORGEOUS), it would've spared me the pain of reading Torment.
  5. The Shack. Eesh. Even though the mystery in the beginning was cool, it tsarts heading down a steep slope from there.
  6. Vampire Kisses. The whole dang series. Just ugh.
Alright. Now, because I feel like it, let's go to the books I'll never read.


Books I'll Never Read

  1. Fifty Shades of ShitGrey.
  2. Fifty Shades HornierDarker.
  3. Fifty Shades FuckedFreed.
  4. Anything with Trisha Telep's name on it.
  5. Anything by James Patterson with someone else's name on it.
  6. Anything Greg Mortenson (or, technically, anything by a co-author with G-Morty's name on it).

There's my list. Link me to your FF post. FOLLOW ME (if you're not already doing so), PLEASE.

Waiting...

Hi, guys! Sorry for the long wait until my next post. My computer broke -- the screen actually broke -- and I'm posting this from another computer. I have a bunch of reviews and such to catch up on, and my computer should be alive again by Friday. Hopefully, I'll have everything up then. Prepare yourself for a tsunami of reviews and catching up. :) -Hayden
