Annotations: What The Hell Did I Just Read

by David Wong (3rd in the John Dies at the End series which I love)

  • Either way, the call is always coming from inside the house.
  • If it’s not threatening you, just let it be
  • recent Disney movie. It was about a princess who has to learn to be independent or something.
  • delicate drizzle that feels like a ghost is silently sneezing in your face
  • People can either feel unconditional love, or they can’t
  • I’ll tell you right now, if there’s such a thing as fate, it can eat a bag of dicks.
  • I don’t need a doctor, I need work. I need a reason to get out of bed in the morning.
  • Society is nothing more than people cooperating with other people they’d much rather murder.
  • Bitch, your ego could blot out the sun.
  • Jesus, you don’t just sneak up behind people and start spouting wisdom at them.
  • Love is not always a two-way street, sometimes you pour your energy into something that never gives back.
  • sadness demon
  • I guess we were letting this thing make food for us now.
Between starting this book and the pervious one below I started and got half way through two other books, both of which I got bored of and have currently given up on. Everything I Never Told You & American Gods.

Annotations: You’ll Grow Out of It

by Jessi Klein

  • midcentury emotionally withholding
  • “take care of your own bird”
  • into men who would best be described as consistently horrible.
  • you have a tape that’s playing in your head. You need to decide to stop playing the tape.
  • want to be sexy and comfortable and I want men to want to unwrap me like I’m a Christmas gift, but I also want to be left alone and take a nap
  • At this point in the monologue, I had the sudden realization that the completely illogical circular argument I was building was not unlike what men must tell themselves as they plan to murder their wives.

Annotations: A Conjuring of Light

by V. E. Schwab
Shades of Magic #3

  • It doesn’t matter what someone is. Only what they think they are.
  • Dawn to dusk
  • A fresh start. A good end.
  • Progress was a process, change took time, a winter before every spring.
  • “Do you miss me?” His gravelly tone seemed to linger in the air. // “Like an itch,” she murmured.
  • She was fierce, and powerful, and terrifying.

Annotations: Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits

by David Wong

  • Then one day he’ll find out his life is all wrapping paper and no gift.
  • I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to forget I ever met you.
  • There’s just slamming your head into the wall, refusing to take no for an answer.

Book Review: You Deserve a Drink

I was hesitant on reading You Deserve a Drink. I don’t know why. I love Mamrie Hart’s YouTube videos and I’m a big fan of the Holy Trinity but for some reason I didn’t run out and pre-order this book. And by run out I mean go to Amazon.ca and give them my credit card info and impatiently wait for Canada Post to drop the book at my office months later. Nor did I go out and buy it once it hit the shelf or for a month after.

I’m going to say the reason for this is I ended 2014 and started 2015 (the first 4 months) reading memoirs by strong females and I needed a break from feeling inspired and defeated. Continue Reading

Product Review: Biore

I finished off my bottle of face cleanser and toner and took this as a chance to try something new. I also took this as a chance to write a review about what I had finished using.

For the last few months I have been trying the Biore Charcoal line. It isn’t bad, but I’m not a fan of how my face reacted to it. It didn’t react in a bad way, but my pores seemed more clogged than when I was using Yes To… before. I could see my pores and couldn’t find a way to unclog them. I didn’t break out much, almost not at all, but I could still see stuff in my pores. Continue Reading

Books I probably shouldn’t read?

Last night I finished Insurgent, the second book in the Divergent series. I have seen the movies for both of these books before borrowing my roommate’s copies to read. It’s interesting how different the ending of the movie was from the book. I think that they made a good choice in changing it for the film, it was better for the screen.

So! I went on GoodReads to update my 2015 book challenge and noticed this section of suggestions based on my “bookshelves”. Now, I have a bookshelf called “Gave Up”, where I save the books I never finish reading after removing them from the “Currently Reading” section shelf. It holds one book; Catch 22. And may soon hold Fall of the Governor Part 2, which I haven’t read in a really long time and once left in my car for a week because I didn’t care enough to go get it and I just started reading another book until I needed to use my car, but haven’t actually committed to giving up on it yet.  Continue Reading

The Uninteresting Kimmy Schmidt

Do I need to apologize for this?

Although I watched all the episodes over a few days, I didn’t really like The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I didn’t find the jokes funny. I didn’t find the story interesting. I didn’t find the characters compelling and I didn’t care in general.
