This Week’s Question:  How do you handle a book you don’t like? Do you DNF or do you power through?

It depends. I love giving bad reviews. I know, that’s so horrible, what a bitch, right? But I do. So if it’s immediately apparent it will be terrible and it’s short I will read it. And the whole time I’ll be like:

If it’s long I will DNF it. But I won’t review it. Unless I DNFed it for something atrocious. Something that made me do this:

You might need to know, so I might need to tell you. But if I just didn’t enjoy it within a short time in (25% or less) I’ll just close it up and move on.

Seriously, you can’t like everything. 

This weekend: Zombies and Vampires invade my blog! Saturday: Boston Comic-Con updates will be all over my twitter! 

It’s Vampires & Zombies

Well, it’s later than I said I’d stay up. Blogging, no less. <– This punctuation is terrible. I’m tired.

And yet, I have found that in August there is a Books, Brains and Blood blog hop, read-a-thon and giveaway.

Yes, kids, the magic word is zombie. (and vampire, but they’re not my favorite.)

This is the same week end as Boston Comic-con, which I’m probably going to. I think hopefully (I WILL GO, NO ONE CAN STOP ME). So when/what/how I’m going to read anything… I don’t know, but I will make this work. Or I’ll turn into a zombie myself.

cza

I think I might have a giveaway… I’ve never had one…

Anyway check over here to see it explained in some less muddled way: My Shelf Confessions

Feature and Follow Friday #4

It’s Friday! And TGIF everyone!

Feature Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. This week’s Feature is Guiltless Reading. It’s a blog hop. Follow all of them, follow anyone who follows you, follow anyone who looks interesting, say hi, make friends.

This week’s question:

Q: Book Vacay: Where is the best destination reading spot for you? (Where do you like to go to read other then your home)

places where you will see me reading:

ImageImageImageImageImageImage

I will read ANYWHERE. After work anywhere with a beer is always my favorite. Anywhere with a beer and a patio is my extra-favorite. But eBooks (on my phone) on public transit is probably the most common, sadly.

Any of these apply to you?

Q: Yesterday was the US’ Independence Day. Share your favorite book with a war in it, or an overthrow of the government.

I’m going with:

I read this for the first time when I was 19 or 20. No idea it was a classic. In fact, I just found out it was published in December of ’84. hey, man, so was I!

The book is a little bit like Starship Troopers. It’s in the future, the war is against giant ant-like aliens. It’s called the Antwar. Awesome action, but mostly it focuses on the psychological effects of war. Felix separates parts of himself, what he calls “the Engine” makes him into an unstoppable killing machine, a tool of war. But the armor records his memories and his thoughts and Jack (who’s a criminal, and somewhat tricked) puts on the armor to uncover the saved data.

Gritty, depressing, powerful.

Alright. So, have a look around, enjoy yourselves. You can follow me on twitter, bloglovin’ or here on wordpress!
