Boys in our Books Friday Question of the Week!
Each week we’ll ask a question about your reading experience. Our review team will give our answers and we encourage you to join in and comment with your answers as well! Let’s talk about BOOKS! :)
Bone Rider Not many people have knocked this one, but when/if they do? Oh boy… If only Ami knew how many times I virtually poked her in the eye for dissing that book. Grrr… ;)
The Foxhole Court is the book that some people just don’t *get* (because – steps onto the podium, fist waving) they are too narrow minded to suspend belief or accept that fiction doesn’t have to conform to the rules sometimes! What the hells wrong with them!? Thankfully it’s usually a minority opinion so my BP levels are kept in check and my PC screen remains crack free, for now.
Jenni is currently reading Memorizing You which I just gave 5 stars. In our conversations she has used words like “rolling my eyes” and “not sure if I can keep reading this”. to which I replied “STFU AND READ THE F*CKING BOOK BEFORE I MURDER SOMEONE IN RETALIATION..”. Stay tuned as the saga unfolds…
I’ll also become irrationally emotional whenever negative comments are made about ICoS, Special Forces: Soldiers, and short, fun and sexy stories that are simply made for enjoyment. Like Resistance. I f*cking loved that book – but it’s not gonna change the world – and it wasn’t written with that intent. It’s just fun. Get it? F.U.N.
Hang on, I’m getting irrationally emotional about it… ;)
Katinka is ANTI-EVENFALL. And I want to hurt her.
Done and done.
Don’t let me hear you say anything bad about Jake Riordan, though, m’kay? Also, definitely don’t whine about the length of The Place Where They Cried, and never, ever, ever say anything negative about Acclamation in my presence. Like EVER. ‘Cause I will cut a bitch.
I know a book everyone loved and I had to fight my way through… Hot Head. I think I rated it a 2.5?
But for a book I fight for which this blog did not like *stands tall* is Something Like Summer andSomething Like Winter. I will get on my soap box, wearing bright blue running shoes, and defend Ben and Tim to the death with my mighty sword of vengeance or, um… something like that.
I would be extremely displeased with anyone who would dare to dislike Filth. I feel very protective of this book and its characters, so don’t even try to roll your eyes at Toni or -God forbids- Kel, I would scratch them out. I can take that you didn’t like it and stay civil, but be very, very careful with your words. You’re warned.
The Administration is brilliant and Manna Francis is a godess. End of discussion.
Also, I get that the Boyd bashing is unavoidable, but you’d better show restraint with the name calling, ’cause I’ll go all Mama-Bear-in-protective-mode on you.
Now….don’t even think about messing with my Toreth! (Right Xing?!?). I wouldn’t recommend it…if Warrick doesn’t get to you first, I will find a way to cause you great pain & suffering. He may be a delusional psycho, but he’s MY delusional psycho. *rubs blond high & tight lovingly*
Don’t listen to them Tor.
I can listen and rationalize a lot of criticism–not everyone will love some of my fave series (Psycop, Adrien English, Love Lessons, etc).
The times I normally have to walk away from the computer (and ponder ending friendships FOREVER) is when someone lays the smack down on something much loved, like a Tamara Allen historical or a Ginn Hale fantasy. Anyone tearing those to pieces leaves me seeing red. “Why are you kicking this wonderful book? BACK. OFF. NOW.”
