  • Mood:

I'll find a book that I read that makes me jump up and down in excitement... someday.

I'm in the middle of a meeting while I type this out... check me out multi-tasking!

I finished Isle of Woman by Piers Anthony!

I... don't know how I feel about it.

This is largely due to there being some surprisingly creative parts to this book... but there's also parts that made me want to bash my head against a wall.

Also? I think Piers Anthony has wet dreams about 14-year-old girls. A lot.

But yeah, he flung in italic text at the beginning and end of each chapter (and a map) that goes into our history, having a set of characters and their family be the way of understanding that history. Creative yes, but... Oh, I don't know.

Maybe I'm just peeved that the set-up OTP wound up being like Sleepless in Seattle. Gods, I hate that movie. I don't want to watch two hours of two people and their journeys of NOT being around each other. Same thing with this book. *Beat* Though Piers did it better than that crap of a movie did.

Man, I really need to pee... Stupid meeting.

    I really tried to get the 50 books read in one year goal... but yeah, 2009 was pretty busy mostly sucking. (Though, yes, some fabulous things did…

    Just finished Turn Coat by Jim Butcher. It took me awhile to finish this, actually. The beginning was a bit slow, but the second half was very well…

    If you're not caught up on How I Met Your Mother, don't watch this! Also... I so need a Barney LJ icon.
