During the past week, I’ve had some seriously big, heh revealing, deja vu moments.
A number of book blurbs have rung the ‘hey, I’ve read/watched that story line before’ bell.
And I’ve been playing the prediction game with some reviewers, ie what they’ll say and the descriptive phrases they’ll use time and time again to say it.
I guess you can’t really be surprised there’s going to be a certain amount of repetition in the book blogging world. I mean we all know we’re going to see the same book reviewed to the gazillionth degree when it’s just been released.
But so many deja vus in such a short period of time??
It’s just been weird. Even for me.
So have any of you experienced periods when it’s just been deja vu after deja vu? Or is it just me?
The position of that dog…
No. Just no.
Holy fucking shit.
I just realised why I read romance.
Like, right now just now.
It’s in my genes. Seriously.
I was bred for it.
For I am the product of a shotgun marriage!
BEAT THAT TROPE, BITCHES!
Fuck me, but the Romance Bookity World is a nightmare at the moment. I mean, geesus. What the hell happened to, I don’t know, reading? For fun?? Who knew it was that fucking hard. Christ.
So, please, for the love of humanity, someone tell me what you’ve read recently that you’ve absolutely loved?
I’m begging here.
Some time ago… at some blog… somewhere… I did a series of guest posts to do with my bad reading habits.
While it is true I have close to a gazillion of these, the three I wrote about – in no particular order – were:
- Reading the end of a story to see what happens. Much more difficult with ebooks, but still doable. Trust me on this.
- Breaking the spines of books. So very satisfying to hear that sharp crack. It’s the book version of popping bubble wrap.
- Toilet reading. You know you do. Don’t deny it. Own it.
Anywho, because I’m in a sharing kind of a mood, I thought I’d let you know what I’ve been reading on the toilet.
It has cats! It has a zombie apocalypse! It is a choose your own adventure story!
What more can you want in a toilet book?!
It’s a gift directly from The Book Goddesses especially for the all-mighty porcelain throne!
So what have you been reading on the toilet lately? Don’t be shy. A toilet is one of the greatest social equalisers.
