Well, that’s Chapter V out of the way. I considered making myself read more than the minimum of 1 chapter, but I just couldn’t.

Anne’s sisters are bitches. Wow.

I think I’m supposed to be endeared to Anne by how infinitely patient she is, but all I can think is “doormat” so….


In this post I explained my plan to finally work my way through Jane Austen’s Persuasion (the only book of hers I don’t like at all).

At the end of each week, either Friday or Saturday, I will post an update of my progress and any thoughts, should I have them.

Chapter IV was so fucking boring I feel like I’m back in high school being forced to read shitty books so a teacher can tell me why I shouldn’t think it’s shitty.

I’m not sure I retained anything from that chapter… I literally kept reading the same passages over and over trying to make information enter my brain.

I can’t believe it took 5 pages just to explain Anne almost got married twice…

Update: Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

Just finished Part 1 (Sleeping Beauty) and I’m nice and adjusted to the dumb New Pretty slang they use.

Each time I reread Pretties I’m struck with how Zane is totally using Tally… It bugs me a little more each time actually. But somehow between now and the next time I reread Pretties I will have forgotten and decided Zane is alright. Hmm.
