Mags is starting A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, #5)
When I picked up the book, my boyfriend said: "Oh god, no. Really? Oh, babe, well, I'm going to miss you-" seeing how thick the book is.

Mags
Mags is on page 111 of 356 of Sense and Sensibility
Excessively used adverb: "monstrous." It's not even in adverb form but Austen seems to like it.

"Yes," she said. "Dante." "Yes," I said. "Dante." What the fuck. Stop it.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

Mags
Mags is on page 68 of 359 of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
An annoying habit of the author I found: he kept repeating dialogues. "Even when they don't?" "Even when they don't." "No matter what?" "No matter what." "Just a phase?" "Just a phase." This goes on all throughout. I hate books that have no natural conversations. Everything sounds so scripted. Nobody talks that way in real life.

"I was so dirty, so deserving of everything bad that had ever come my way or ever would again." First time that a narrator says what I'm thinking about her verbatim.

"Masturbatory." "Orgasmically." Where the fuck does Chabon get his adverbs?

Mags is on page 167 of 454 of We Were the Mulvaneys
This book is proof of why I love Joyce Carol Oates. Her writing is a stream of light, interesting (and always forward, never senseless, though often dark) consciousness.

Why is it always about how the clothes bring out the this-and-that in the wearer's eyes?

I can't decide if that Dracarys scene is so much more badass in the show or in the book.
