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 […]

I’ve read four books of my goal to read twenty books this year! Not counting books we read for this blog. Obviously. The word “goal” implies some kind of personal achievement. Jane Eyre What’s It About? It’s Jane Eyre, y’all. What’s It Like? Is it weird if my favorite parts of this were the first […]

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 […]

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 […]

“WHO THE HELL IS LISA?” A loud voice bounced off the four walls of the squad room. “Lisa Lindy.” […] I looked up into the eyes of the young Assistant Special Agent in Charge and nearly swallowed my tongue. It was him—my one-night stand, the lips I missed, my neighbor. Val chimes in with a helpful […]

The Antichrist Mind-Controls Everyone, This Is No Fun Anymore: Left Behind Chapter 25, Part 2

March 29, 2016 by

Previously in the last chapter of Left Behind, the antichrist has “Who me? Aw, shucks”-ed his way to a brand new political office in charge of the entire world. Despite devoting considerably more of its almost 500 pages to an intricate political thriller narrative than to, you know, the apocalpyse, it is not particularly clear how […]

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 […]
