Anonymous sent: you should tag all your readings so they're easier to find!

hey anon! reviews are always tagged for organisational purposes and on the sidebar there’s a quick-browsing menu with every book i’ve reviewed in chronological order :)

Anonymous sent: You should read Destroying Avalon. We had to read it in class and I'm being forced to write an essay on that piece of shit. Not as bad as some stuff you've read, but still bad. Shitty plot structure. So many cliches. Perfect mary sue tortured protagonist. Lack of understanding of teenagers. Offensive treatment of queer orientations, depression, self harm, and suicide. Completely unbelievable.

When Avalon moves to the city her life is turned upside down. Starting at a new high school, she finds herself at the centre of a brutal cyber-bullying campaign. She is inundated with obscene text messages, and subject to increasingly vicious web site postings, as things spiral out of control. Miserable and isolated, Avalon relies on a small group of new friends. But as the threats escalate, is anyone safe?

i don’t know why i was expecting marion zimmer bradley and arthurian cycle. you did say teenagers after all 

why would you want me to read this though do you hate me that much 

haven’t i suffered enough

Anonymous sent: I read a few months ago the wonderfully horrific tale "hedging his bets" and I'd love to formally recommend it to you... let's just say: biker werehedgehogs

that masterpiece has actually been on my to read list for a couple of months, i’m just waiting for the price to go down because i categorically refuse to spend three dollars for biker werehedgehogs

Anonymous sent: Eragon series. Eeerrragooonnn

i went there when i was 13. never again. 

at this point i’ve established i don’t particularly care for dragons and that series is probably why [stares off into the distance and shakes head]

Anonymous sent: for the record i just want to say that i've read nearly all of the house of night books 'cause the last person who lived in my house left the whole series (sans the last book or two) here for some reason. they're absolute garbage but i couldn't stop reading them. they're so bad that i just had to keep reading. it's like a train wreck. you can't look away, man. they're a jumbled, incoherent mess and i hate them and you should totally read the whole series.

no don’t you dare i trusted you house of night people once and i’m never going there again. never

Bernadine’s has always had a thing for trees. Has she finally found a tree that’s the one for her? Fingers crossed things get filthy!

the perfect book to read after watching guardians of the galaxy i reckon. 

(suggested by the lovely jadziwine) (also closeup of the cover because it’s a work of art)

corpsecaddy:

So I found this harlequin romance paperback today, and normally I just toss those right over without paying them much mind, but the cover of this one made me pause. Sure that the artist was just taking liberties, I checked out the back.

I’m dubious. I should read a passage:

It is a literal bear.
Okay yeah I’ll admit it I’m going to read this but only because it sounds like the most fucked up romance novel in existence.
But wait….

You have some explaining to do, Canada.
