Honestly... wtf even is this book? It‘s like the author threw every literary fiction cliche into a blender, poured the resulting word slurry onto the page and called it a day.
I almost started to think it was a parody of literary fiction novels, but ultimately it‘s not smart enough to pull off that con job.
Who else is doing #24in48 this weekend? Who else has a wildly unrealistic TBR for the event? 🙋♀️ You can follow my journey here or in more depth on my Instagram @ the.nerdy.spinster!!! Let me know where to follow you! @24in48
I got my hands on an ARC of this beauty... I‘m a little terrified to read it because I love ‘The Night Circus‘ so much... but that‘s not stopping me from dropping everything to read it immediately.
While I am very much enjoying this book... I must fervently disagree with the author. Winona Ryder is THE definitive Jo March, and NOTHING you can write will ever convince me that casting her was anywhere near a mistake.
My Harry Potter ReRead has been going on for a month now... and I have been SO into it! So much so that I designed my September Bullet Journal after it... my Hogwarts letters mood Tracker is my favorite page.
Harry Potter ReRead: Day 21 pt 2
Let‘s be real... can anyone ANYONE explain to me why Dean Thomas wasn‘t made prefect over Ron?
And I mean other than “Ron being prefect serves the plot better and causes Harry some angst that develops his character...blablabla”
Harry Potter ReRead: Day 19 pt 3
I complained about GoF being long before I remembered that OoP is EIGHT HUNDRED AND SEVENTY PAGES!!!
I mean it‘s quite an achievement to get kids to read a single book that is 103 pages longer than the ENTIRE Chronicles of Narnia...
Harry Potter ReRead: Day 13
There are two types of people in the world: people who know Prisoner of Azkaban is the best Harry Potter book, and people who are wrong.

I get to skip quidditch!
Harry Potter ReRead: Day 5
I love these books and I love this world... but reading it as an adult has been interesting. JK Rowling has some definitely problematic... mostly I‘ve been noticing her tendency to use the ugly=bad trope. It‘s lazy and beneath her talents.
Harry Potter ReRead: Day 4
I firmly believe in the healing power of Harry Potter (both the books and films) after some extended exposure I‘m finally feeling well again.
Harry Potter ReRead: Day 3
I love LoquaciousLiterature‘s fan art, and this is how I‘m imagining the Golden Trio this time through.
Harry Potter ReRead: Day 2
I apparently have/had food poisoning and didn‘t read anything yet today... the project is not off to a great start.
