Thalia Ouch?

message 3: by luhvBOOKS (new) - added it

luhvBOOKS I read the summary. The name "Quaranteen" is very sad.

Thalia Oh, yeah, definitely. I applaud them for changing it, hahah.

message 5: by luhvBOOKS (new) - added it

luhvBOOKS It would've been awful if they didn't...

The book sounds interesting.

Thalia Yeah, I am interested by the idea of the plot. Only one of my friends has reviewed it though, and she didn't like it very much. I'm a little wary, but we'll see. (:

Emma Louise just read the blurb... McKinley High? isn't that the school on Glee? haha

message 9: by Emma (new) - added it

Emma Louise other than that it sounds interesting

Thalia I dunno I don't watch Glee hahah. (: It's kinda fast for me and a little amateur, but it is interesting.

message 11: by luhvBOOKS (new) - added it

luhvBOOKS They always use McKinley High for a school name.

Thalia The Wonder Years! That's where I knew it from, hahah.

luhvBOOKS Lol :)

Thalia Review is up!

Didn't even notice the technical errors because I was so pissed off at the negative portrayal of women and the unlikable characters. Good observations.

Thalia I read out loud, so I notice them a whole lot. That usually pisses me off more than anything the content could have, as messed up as that sounds, hahah. I figure if you're going to write a book, you may as well read through it yourself and notice when it sounds too choppy.
