Book Thirtysix:The Worst Intentions

The Worst Intentions, Alessandro Piperno

Ooph. I did not like this book. Which is a shame because the cover is so cool. So I am going to blame this book for my being so horribly--probably irrevocably--behind. Every time I wanted to sit down and read I would look at this book, sigh, and decide to do something else. It's not that the story was bad, in fact, the characters were quite interesting and silly in a way that I usually enjoy. It just was written in a way that felt like any moment now the story was going to kick in and any minute now something relevant was going to happen. And, really, nothing ever did. It just had this strange feeling of neverending sidestory after sidestory with no feeling of the here and now.

Now, is reading 16 books in three and a half weeks impossible?

Hello there! It's good to hear from you, and very exciting to find your book blog. I can't wait to dig back through the archives.

If you're feeling pressed for time, would you consider teen books? Some of them are very good, and they're like, you know--shorter.

Not at all- just read a bunch of Choose Your Own Adventure books and die on page 3. You could blast through 'em all in a day!
