… coming to a theatre near you, on Friday, the nineteenth of never!
Well, the drawing post was quite well-liked, so I believe I’ll make it a regular-ish thing, and soon the world will be mine! Anyway, I think I mentioned in another post that I also do bad book reviews, and you may be wondering: who is she–to say what is bad and what isn’t?
No one, that’s who, but I’m going to do it anyway because I enjoy it! Some people may think me of a mean spirit, but the truth is I do genuinely enjoy many of the books I review; they are the ‘Troll 2’s, the ‘Birdemic’s and the ‘The Room’s of literature. Well, of YA paranormal romance and dystopia anyway.
Okay, that’s a little unfair, the books I review aren’t quite that much of a trainwreck. Still, they entertain me with their badness, which is why they are judged on the Rachelloon scale of Things that Entertained me with their Badness (formerly the Karataratakus scale of the same name, as that’s my handle on Goodreads where I post the condensed reviews)
This blog gives me the opportunity to post… what aren’t really reviews so much as text commentary, chapter by chapter looks at various tales which usually amount to about four thousand words–Book Deconstruction Lite, if you will?–which I’ll start posting tomorrow with Becca Fitzpatrick’s ‘Hush, Hush’; a more light-hearted jaunt, perhaps, into that terrain, than many of the vitriol-filled rants I’ve seen before.
And who knows? It may be that some young aspiring writer will one day pick a book of mine up on Kindle, for 99p or however much my genius will go for, and they will say to themselves ‘This is a crock of shit! I’m going to write a four thousand word blog post explaining why, chapter by chapter!’
To be such an inspiration to others would truly bring tears of joy to my eyes!
