  • I Do Not Think That Word Means What You Think It Means

    Hey everybody! How are you fine people doing today?

    ​I want to take a momentary break from reviewing and bookish shenanigans to talk about words. Specifically commonly used words that are also slurs.

    Trigger warning: I’m talking about slurs so assume this post will be full of words you may find offensive. I’m using them in a way I hope is constructive, educational and will ultimately make us all (slightly) better people. However, if you can’t handle that, you may want to click out of this window and go look up kitten videos or whatever floats your boat. You have been warned.

    The intention of this post is not to rehash and complain about known problem words (I mean, we all know that if you call someone retarded/faggot/cunt you’re probably going to cause a problem, right?) Same goes for profanity. I understand that some people find it offensive, but being crass is not the same as being hurtful.

1) The Last Girl is about a girl, Danby, caught in an apocalypse event sparked when all of humanity suddenly gains the ability to hear each other’s thoughts. If that power switched on today, how much of book #2 could I gleam from your mind?

You’d glean the whole book, start to finish. It’s called The Last Shot, it’s written and it’s out in March next year – so only it’s only can’t-do-the-maths-number-of-sleeps until it’s on shelves. If you read my mind you’d see it sends Danby into a dark place where she really has to draw on all her intuition and courage. It’s psychological thriller up front, slam-bam action-adventure out the back. So, a mullet of a novel,
maybe? I think of it as my Empire Strikes Back.

2) If you got to choose which apocalyptic event you had to be stuck in, which would you choose? Zombie? Asteroid? Super virus?

How to Love cover

Before I begin, a hearty THANK YOU to Christina over at A Reader of Fictions who sent me with this book.

How to Love made me me feel the whole rainbow of feels, Katie Cotugno’s writing is gorgeous. She captures the poignant details of a moment with prose that reads like poetry and wraps itself around your heart, tugging it back and forth.

The hideous thing is this: I want to forgive him. Even after everything, I do. A baby before my seventeenth birthday and a future as lonely as the surface of the moon and still the sight of him feels like a homecoming, like a song I used to know but somehow forgot.

Don’t lie, that gave you feels.

The story is told in alternating timelines that work like chocolate and peanut butter. Before tells the story of how Reena and Sawyer fell in love and the After shows Sawyer’s return and the shockwaves he sends through the life Reena put together in his wake.

There comes a time in every person’s life where they need to make the highly personal decision of whether to read manga or not.  For me, due to my early introduction to anime, and the scarcity of manga, I ultimately only just finished my first manga series.

But I implore you, my innocent, sweet, darlings.  Before you venture into this pit of sweet, sweet iniquity to bathe in the waters of cartoon animated bishounen, let me try to prepare you as best I can.  Tread lightly, little sparrow.  It could be that there is no turning back!  Here is a quick list of things to concern yourself with when entering the world of manga or even, in many cases, anime.

1. You will probably feel like the biggest perv ever.

Whether you’re into guys or girls, the perv factor is something that everyone has to either embrace or shove down into the depths of their scarred psyche and ignore.
