I Can’t Believe it’s the Last Chapter: Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 25 (Part 2: Dawn of the Planet of the Douchebags)

February 3, 2015 by


Even though there are so many bad books Matt and I want to write about, Jamie McGuire’s shit shows hold a special place in my heart. Say what you want about them, but in the wise words of my blog partner in crime, “Jamie McGuire is weirdly solid for our purposes. Consistently shit, but sort […]

Trenton Acts Perhaps Unreasonably: Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 25 (Part 1)

February 2, 2015 by


Ariel and I are splitting up the last chapter of Beautiful Oblivion into two parts today, and that will conclude our coverage of Beautiful Oblivion! What a long, strange ride it’s been! By mean I mean it was cliched and mostly meaningless. Regular readers may be wondering why I’m posting on a Monday, and also […]

College Romantic Comedy Kills Off Dozens Of People In A Fire. Again.: Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 24

January 27, 2015 by


If you think it’s astounding that Jamie McGuire’s had this much success writing the same college drama-comedy romance centering around the same handful of plot points three times, remember that one of those thrice-used scenes is dozens of nameless college students dying in a fire. Because nothing says “college romantic comedy!” like “tragic fire claiming […]

Trenton is an Awful Human Being: Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 23

January 26, 2015 by


Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 23 “Even for just a few classes, midterms were kicking my ass. Kody, Raegan, Gruber, Blia, and I were all studying at the Red before it got busy or when it was slow, and Trenton was helping me study at Skin Deep. ” Oh man, one of Cami’s challenges that is never mentioned […]

An Entire Chapter of Raegan’s Subplot: Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 22

January 20, 2015 by


[Ariel says: I can’t believe you were worried about getting the chapter with the Cami/Trent sex scene when a chapter about Raegan’s subplot was in play.] I was at a taping for Jimmy Fallon’s upcoming spin-off show Lip Sync Battle over the weekend! I’m not actually allowed to talk about it, but I felt like […]

The Weirdest, Dumbest Reference to Buffy I Have Ever Read: Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 21

January 19, 2015 by


Last week, things supposedly fell apart, except they really didn’t at all… This week, fingers crossed, Trent will fall off a cliff or be abducted by aliens. Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 21 SATURDAY NIGHT AFTER A GRUELING NIGHT AT THE RED, I dragged my ass into the apartment, and flipped on my bedroom light. Trenton was […]

Everything Comes Crashing Down: Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 20

January 13, 2015 by


The last chapter ended super ominously like this: And that’s when it all came crashing down. Which is, ironically, probably when the BBGT crowd gets most excited, so I’m glad it was so clearly spelled out for us! LET US BEGIN THE GRAND DEMISE! Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 20 We open up with Cami wrapping up […]

Cami and Trenton Have Sex, it Really Isn’t That Bad to Write About: Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 19

January 12, 2015 by


[Matthew adds: READING about it, however…] Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 19 We open with a scene that makes me confident that Jamie McGuire desperately wants this to be made into a film: Raegan and I were buzzing behind the bar at full speed, in metallic dresses and high heels. Our tip jars were overflowing, and the […]

Happy Thanksgiving: Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 17

January 5, 2015 by


Have you guys seen that Jamie Dornan (#NotMyChristian) has been talking about how Fifty Shades isn’t misogynistic? But how he completely misses the point that BDSM isn’t what fucking makes the book misogynistic in the first place. Fuck offff, man. Go back to Once Upon a Time.  Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 17: We begin where last chapter left off […]

Trenton Punches Cami’s Dad For Love: Beautiful Oblivion Chapter 16

December 23, 2014 by


I know it’s not Divergent day on BBGT, but I (finally) saw the new Hunger Games movie over the weekend (meh) and, because even your self-imposed work never escapes you, there was a trailer for Insurgent. AKA the other book we’re reading right now. Check out the trailer and see how much of it actually […]
