This blog is primarily about books; photography of books, reflections on reading, favorite books. It also has a splash of things that bring me joy; cats, corgis, tea.

Thoughts on 50 Shades

We (my book group) are entering the final stretch of the first book. Guys, I am so over it. It’s so repetitive. Ana is annoying, Grey is a sociopath, nothing new is happening, and I just can’t with the frequent emails and their terrible formatting. Ugh, this is going to be a long read.

It was pretty common that people mispronounced Hermione’s name until they heard it on an audiobook or the movies. I mispronounced Ginny. I always said it like Guinea Pig.

I just finished Attachments by Rainbow Rowell and am working on a review for it. Until then enjoy this Throwback Thursday review from last year.

I loved this part. It made me think so much about the conversations that shaped my life just before and after I arrived.
Here’s what I know:- I am Rachel Lea after my late great-grandmothers Regina and Lillian.- I was almost Rebecca Lily.- If I were a boy I would have been Randy.- My father wanted boy-me to be Rhys, but my mother really did not.Do you know whom you’re named after or what else your name might have been?

I am a girl who is named after her father. My father doesn’t go by Linzie but it is his legal name and was his dad’s name. Our middle names are different. My name is spelled weird because my great grandmother had a third grade education and sounded out Lindsey. It never felt like my dad’s name, probably because he went by a non-derivative nickname. Linzie just feels like me. The alternative name (if I had a twin or something I guess) would have been Autumn Lynn.Somewhat ironically if I had been a boy I don’t think I would have my father’s name. My mom always said she would have gone with Christopher Edward.

out of all the aspects of millennial-bashing, i think the one that most confuses me is the “millennials all got trophies as a kid, so now they’re all self-centered narcissists” theory

like— kids are pretty smart, y’all. they can see that…

I’ve never been more emotional about any social media post in my entire life

UPDATE: guys Beth Broderick tweeted yesterday that this Salem is THE SAME SALEM!!! He’s 20 years old man!!!! 20!

That Salem is still kicking is all I care about.

When you imagine a character as the wrong race.

I’ve been imagining Lincoln from Attachments as black even though I knew it was unlikely (it’s set in Nebraska). He wasn’t thoroughly described so I just imagined him and his family as African American for no particular reason but that got canonically shattered around 128 pages in.

Reading Stuff

So 50 Shades of Grey is taking forever because I’m reading it with friends and we haven’t set a new point yet.

I did start reading Attachments by Rainbow Rowell today. This is attempt number 2. Just couldn’t get into it the first time.

BF will be annoyed that I started yet another book that is not the one he leant me.
