  • #Reading #ThePledge, and so far nothing has happened.  We just met this guy in a seedy bar, and I suspect he’ll be a future Love Interest.
  • So this guy, Max, is a military guy.  But he’s talking directly with The Queen?  Is he perhaps related?  It would fit his language.
  • If I’m right in this assumption of him being Royal, I’ll bet money on his full name being Maximillian.
  • I was 100% right in every assumption up until now, name and everything.  The story has yet to grow interesting.
  • I give up, this book didn’t even pick up by the end, no tension or excitement.  It wasn’t bad, though.  Just boring.
  • Only thing I liked was the not-giving-in-to-torture-of-parents bit. But then she just gave up when her sister entered the picture?  #Pushover

The Body Finder

  • I am 99% sure that the guy just described in the search group is the killer. He had no murder-feel? CALLING IT!
  • …he has no sound of a killer, but HE DIDN’T REALLY #KILL THEM, which gives him no resonance with Violet.
  • …also, there’s some #ObviousLampshading.  He was described as unimportant, BUT with more than five words, all corresponding with killer’s POV.
  • I could be wrong, though. The writer might actually not make this a huge twist and instead go along with her original (but unoriginal) idea.
  • (I’ll be so disappointed if it’s not the unassuming military man. It’s a freaking #brilliant plot twist, having the killer not actually kill.)
  • OK, they caught someone else, someone with all the “kill-feels” about him. I don’t like this. It’s way too early in the book to catch him.
  • There’s a second guy. KNEW IT! Military man fo sho. He has no “trace” because he didn’t kill the others. He’s the hunter/gatherer.
  • Oh yes, go for a run all alone with a killer out there. That sounds like a smart thing to do. #Moron
  • Oh yes, leave the targeted girl alone in a public girls’ bathroom at prom, that’s totally safe! #Morons
  • “I didn’t really kill them, you know, not really.” #HAH! NAILED IT!

Desires of the Dead (The Body Finder #2)

  • #Reading the sequel to #TheBodyFinder, and it’s pretty dang obvious that our new #unsub POV lady is The New Guy’s sister.
  • Seriously? Now the author isn’t even TRYING to conceal #whodunit, because how much more obvious can these clues GET?!
  • We have yet to meet The Dad, so I’m pretty dang sure he’s gonna be our Bad Guy of the episode. #ObviousLampshading
  • Oh hai, there’s a body in the woods that insists on being found, but we think it’s an animal?  Kids, say hello to your dead mommy.
  • Oh yes, identify the killer and THEN go out alone in the snow to dig up the dead “animal”. #Moron.  Lady, u dumb.
  • Called it.  #TheEnd

I`ve been searching for an amazing audio edition of The Lord of the Rings since I found out it was on my syllabus this year.  After testing about five different ones, I stumbled upon one only posted on YouTube.  It’s by a guy called Phil Dragash, and he made it a Soundscape project with background noise and music and lots of fun stuff, even voices. After listening to a few chapters, it is (in my opinion) the best audio out there.  (You can check it out here.)

I just finished downloading all the chapters of Fellowship.  (The audio all free for download, but you have to do one chapter at a time, which takes a good amount of time.)
