oh my god this book. I just opened it up to glance at the writing style and happened across a note from the author, and the sample bit of text provided to whet the reader’s appetites - or, in my case, scream out BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA alone in my kitchen.
I don’t care I haven’t finished Fifty Shades, I have to share these with you.
Part Three of our dramatic reading of Slenderbone is up! In which we discover that our heroine is a lesbian, and there is a very long super awkward lesbian sex scene that was just so poorly written it hurt.
Katie and I have mentioned a few times that we had something special planned for you all, and here it is. Not only did we review Slenderbone, as was much requested, we took advantage of the rare opportunity of us both being in the same country and filmed it LIVE. We really hope you enjoy it!
The whole thing wound up being about an hour and twenty minutes long, so it will be uploaded to youtube in chunks. We hope you enjoy it!
Hello! This is Mardukthalia, one half of the GREAT BOOK SWAP, reviewing the next section of - dun dun! - Through the Cradle of Fear.
I definitely got the better deal here. I LOVE ridiculous adventure archaeology novels. I just finished Matthew Reilly’s Seven Ancient Wonders/ Six Sacred Stones/ Five Greatest Warriors series, which, for the record, involved breaking a terrorist out of Guantanamo Bay, a supertanker being thrown into a pit of lava by a tsunami, and the hero having an encounter with dead Jesus. THEY WERE THE BEST.
AND NOW THIS! Jackietastic is sat next to me going “OH GOD” over Fifty Shades but I AM DELIGHTED TO BEGIN.
The story so far!: When we left Gabriel, he’d rescued the Damsel and gotten into a barfight and picked himself up a strapping young Greek youth with a motorcycle (HELLOOO) to drive him to the next exposition dump!
It is I, Jackietastic, and I am already marginally intoxicated because 1) wedding yesterday and 2) I just did something INCREDIBLY special for you guys for this blog with Katie/Mardukthalia and I went a little heavy on the vodka during. It’ll be up after adequate editing.
BUT NOW, before I lose Katie back to the evil clutches of the United Kingdom, we are, for a brief post, switching books to review. Therefore, I bring you, with no small amount of despair, chapter 19 of 50 Shades of Grey.
