I Read Terrible Things

We read terrible things. While drinking. And blog about it. With gifs.

emerglades asked: What books have you read/are currently reading, and to you have any future books lined up?

Good question!

I (monsterthalia) am currently reading Fifty Shades Darker primarily, and The Tournament (Elizabeth I on a murderchess road trip!), The Mask of Troy (THE BORINGEST BOOK EVER) and The Book of the Dead (DIOGENES PENDERGAST: DIAMOND SMASHER) for some variety when I just can’t take Ana and Christian and their horrible horrible ways any more.

Jackietastic is reading Through the Cradle of Fear, but also does a lot of romance one-offs, when something truly ludicrous catches her eye. Like the dino porn. 

In future? I’ll do Fifty Shades Freed, of course, and probably whatever other ludicrous/awesome adventure archaeology catches my eye, and Jackietastic will probably keep up with the romances, though I’m trying to persuade her to do a Matthew Reilly book. 

If you have any recommendations, do let us know, we’ll either get to them in future or may be able to squeeze them in earlier.

mariana-oconnor asked: Is it weird that the thing that I found most jarring and bizarre about the last 50 shades review was the idea of someone trying to do a figure skating move off some gymnastics equipment? Is that even possible? Is this even a relevant question? Have I become over-exposed to the insanity that is 50 shades?

Fifty Shades Darker, chapters 4 & 5

For the record, tonight I shall be drinking the uber “classy” ‘PEACH AMORE’, aka the only kind of peach schnapps stocked in Newcastle Tescos. And because I am as classy as Peach Amore, I will be drinking it neat. Possibly from the bottle. Because tonight I must face up to the fact that…

THE STORY SO FAR!: Christian and Ana are back together. They weren’t even apart for two fucking chapters. And they’re having such vanilla sex they even remember to put the chicken back in the fridge with a plate on top whilst they do it.

Life is pain.

Anonymous asked: The Tournament would be p. cool but looks like 50 Shades beat me to the punch xD oh well. I do have a request though: Masterposts of the longer escapades (links to all the 50 Shades posts in order, for example) would be majorly awesome, if y'all ever have the spare time to do it. <3

I’ll do another Tournament review next, I promise :) And a masterpost is a great idea! I may compile one THIS VERY EVENING!

I WILL DO A REVIEW THIS VERY EVENING. (You have till I finish my cheesy pasta to voice preferences for Fifty Shades, the Tournament, or Another Shitty Adventure Archaeology novel.)

fenrislorsrai asked: Suggested awful archaeology adventure: Primeval by David Goleman. It has Anastasia Romanov AND invisible sasquatches! also, if you want some FAST crazy reads, try western serials. Most are fairly normal western plots... then there's the ones where they have kung fu masters fight werewolves. in the old west. (Lone Star is the most cray-cray of the serials. check your local used bookstore)

butmyheartbelongsto asked: Hi, me again! I ran a Google search for "feel the burn, asshole" and "The Ark" by Boyd Morrison came up, and I think that's the one. I still can't find my copy so I can't remember how many times he says it but it definitely comes up at least once. I remember nothing else about the book but "Feel The Burn" stayed with me for some reason!

It still looks pretty damn wonderful, so I’m adding it to the list!

Anonymous asked: Normal blogging plz! I don't see enough of y'all's stuff on my dashboard any more and it makes me sad in my soul </3

Sorry about that! I’ve switched from full-time work to MA study and that’s eaten into my evenings; and Jackietastic just always has a million things on. I’ll do my best to start posting with some kind of regularity again.
