The last two days of Bout of Books usually consist of lots of procrastinating and very little reading.
I can live with that, though, because my procrastinating involves Bob’s Burgers (best show!).

Finally finished NOS4A2 and I’m a bit disappointed. It started out great, Kate Mulgrew was great throughout but it dragged. 700 pages weren’t necessary, 500 pages would’ve been more than enough, in my opinion. I’m going to read the corresponding comic book anyway.
The other two books are my new goal. I want to finish them until tomorrow night. I won’t, though, I just want to. At my current pace it won’t happen but I can read most of them.

You know what pisses me off? Authors making shit up about German and not letting someone who can actually speak German proofread their crap. “Nosferatu” is NOT the German word for “vampire”, Mr. Hill.
I would do it for free just to not have to sit through this inaccuracy.

In my defense: I bought Bound To Accept because Nenia is a really great person. I’m half way though and it almost hurts me to say but it’s stupid. Might be because I have a strong aversion to modern popculture references. I don’t know why but it makes me uncomfortable if Tumblr, My Little Pony and the like are mentioned in books. Feels like “LOOK! I’M TOTALLY IN TUNE WITH THE YOUNG PEOPLE!” which is weird because Nenia is younger than me but it feels like that anyway.
I might have to drop Visions Of Heat because it’s way too rape-y for me. You can write sexy books without making the male lead a ginormous douchenozzle. It’s kind of sad because apart from the “romance” (for lack of a better word, it’s not really a romance when the woman says “gtfo” and the man doesn’t give a shit) it’s actually a really interesting world and plot.

I can feel you judging me! Stop it, I feel bad enough already. No idea why I suddenly thought “You know what I should read? Beastiality porn!” but here I am, listening to the audiobook…
My TBR is not up to date anymore as you might have already noticed (ha, I’m talking to you like I’m important enough for you to pay attention, let me live in my dream world a bit longer!) and so I’ve now started another Man Booker Prize longlist book. And you know what I realized? I’m not smart enough to appreciate literary fiction. The writing is exhausting and it’s also boring. Maybe I’m just bad at choosing these (which wouldn’t be too far off tbh. I’m bad at choosing good books) but so far I do not see the appeal.
I finished both of them. Half A King was okay and I HATED Geek Love. It was so absurd, everyone was unlikeable and the author put in things to shock the reader but at some point that just became boring. “Oh great, another amputation *yawns*.”

Reached today’s goal of 200 pages. Good start.
Still reading Half A King and still liking it.
I had a bit of a brain fart and thought “Hey, I should try again to read the first Black Dagger Brotherhood book because it will be hilarious.” I dropped it after 20min. Past me from 2010 was right to DNF it.
Starting the first day with this. I’m not very far in but I’m already liking it a lot.
