Hey, wanna hear something crazy? I’m flying to London later today! Ariel and I are gonna hang out and watch Bob’s Burgers! I mean, do London things. Like watch Bob’s Burgers. Beautiful Redemption: Chapter 6 Liis is busily working on fanservice the Travis Maddox case, where she comes to totally sensible, very logical conclusions. After […]

Beautiful Redemption Chapter 5: Liis goes to the gym during Thomas’ gym time. Damn, she’s got a spunky personality. I guess it’s her Irish shining through again! Thomas protests Liis being there a little bit, but F for effort overall. Liis informs us that she “switched out [her ]C-cup for a sports bra.” I distinctly remember Cami […]

Jessica’s Life Is Also a Mess! Twinsies! Sweet Valley Confidential Chapter 2

April 5, 2016 by

Originally Ariel and I were talking about just skipping ahead to the batshit insane Sweet Valley High novels (and there are some choice ones, let me just say!). I imagine we’ll be coming back to those eventually, all out of order and with a complete lack of respect to continuity. But we could not resist the ten years later […]

Notice how we didn’t do anything dumb for April Fool’s Day yesterday. It’s cool. We got you. You’re safe here. Left Behind We finished the first Left Behind book! It ended with Carpathia killing Stonagal and Todd-Cothran, and then used his magic antichrist powers to get everyone to think that those two killed themselves. Also Buck […]

Thomas Manages To NOT Be An A-hole: Beautiful Redemption Chapter 4

We’re on week 2 of a new Jamie McGuire novel and I’ve already mixed up the Maddox brothers’ names once. Beautiful Redemption: Chapter 4 Liis and Val go to the bar. Again. I like how McGuire’s already distilled her formula to the essentials, because while Beautiful Disaster and Beautiful Oblivion both had The Red, Beautiful […]

S**t Gets Real, Book Manages to Remain Really Boring: Left Behind Chapter 25, Part 1

Left Behind Chapter 25, Part 1: Carpathia gathers his nearest and dearest to show off his favourite party trick – addressing people (or countries) one by one and saying the same thing in just a slightly different way. Only this time there’s a twist! He uses this rare and beautiful talent to fuck with some people’s […]

Left Behind Everyone is finally confident that Carpathia is the Antichrist (fucking finally), but then wonder, “but who, like, is actually the Antichrist?” Carpathia is basically made king of the world because everyone is obsessed with him. The motherfucking Tribulation Force assembles. Buck is 100% confident that this is the Rapture and really wants to be a […]

Hopefully you enjoyed our surprise return to the world of Jamie McGuire’s Super Maddox Bros World yesterday! I thought Ariel did a great job remembering any details about Thomas that were hinted at in Beautiful Disaster and Beautiful Oblivion, because I sure as fuck didn’t. Beautiful Redemption: Chapter 2 First things first, there is NONE of that mysterious […]

No More Playing Around, Protagonists Have Sex in the First Chapter: Beautiful Redemption Chapter 1

YESSSSSSSS. Beautiful Redemption Chapter 1 We learn the most crucial facts about our new protagonist (except her name, but I checked the summary and it’s Liis) in the first paragraph: Control was all that was real. I had learned from a young age that planning, calculation, and observation could avoid most unpleasant things—unnecessary risk, disappointment, […]
