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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Buck heads to Chicago to find a replacement for Lucinda Washington where he immediately finds the perfect candidate: News of his becoming their boss had swept the place, and he was greeted with coolness by Lucinda Washington’s former assistant, a young woman in sensible shoes. She told him in no uncertain terms, “Plank did nothing about […]
