I wonder how authors feels when their entire bibliography is read in like 2 days and if it will effect publishing like binge media consumption effected TV
Also my eyes burn after 2 days of reading everything Seanan McGuire
I feel like the line between paranormal mysteries/noir and paranormal romance novels is about paper thin. When the blurb on the back of your book talks about fighting demons, finding killers and averting disaster, I feel greatly cheated when half the book is about people having sex or their totally not creepy (but really it is) relationship. And oh there might be a demon or two.
Edit: 9 out of 10 times you can tell when this is gonna happen in the novel you are reading based on the gender of the protagonist, If it is a woman it’s almost guaranteed to happened but never with a man.
I have never actually read The Great Gatsby or The Catcher in the Rye, we did To Kill A Mockingbird and Of Mice and Men
… I think it was because we were a black school, got to do a book with some people that look like us in it somewhere.
I’m reading a metastory about stories told using a story in a story
this book is awesome
Kingkiller Chronicle, read it folks
that beautiful feeling when a book you read turns out to be a series and the next one is out in a few days
Sharp (Mindspace Investigations #2), by Alex Hughes, (April 2, Roc)
HELL FUCKING YES
All this time I have still yet to read the first Culture Novel Consider Phlebas read almost all the rest including The Hydrogen Sonata still need to figure out what went on in the Idiran War
I just realize there’s this weird “reverse out-of-print” thing happening in our generation where we now have to deal with (while increasingly rare occurrence) books only existing in paper form (usually marked up ridiculously on Amazon if you’re lucky) but absolutely no where online in any format
Why does every “urban fantasy” novel with a female protagonist have sometime of were-shifter alpha as a boyfriend all the time?
In addition why are they (the were-shifter alpha boyfriend) extremely creepy? “I broke into your house” is the new “i got you flowers”
I think I’m off to a good start.
