And yet again the Goodreads Choice Awards Romance category is a massive shitshow. It's mostly New Adult trash! JFC. Of course a P2P. Of course. What in the hell does this site have against good romance?! As a reader of the genre I'm baffled, angry, and insulted.

“We love having authors on Goodreads. But, we are a site that's focused on readers. If there is a choice between what is best for readers and what is best for authors, we will always err on the side of readers.”

"I've watched us deal with many author flame wars over the years, and they all started with an author commenting on a negative review of their own book first."

"I hope you’ll appreciate that if we just start deleting ratings whenever we feel like it, that we’ve gone down a censorship road that doesn’t take us to a good place." — Otis Chandler, Goodreads CEO

Sometimes you see someone with whom you are friends friend someone else who trolled one of your reviews (in this case in a concentrated effort with several other people and is the moron who thinks Wikipedia is a valid legal source) and you want to say something but then figure in the end it isn't worth it. So you just cringe instead.

We would also ask that you refrain from posting content like this going forward. If you continue to act in a way that is contrary to the spirit and intent of Goodreads, your account will come under review.

This grinds my fucking gears so hard. I'm not the one acting in that way, Goodreads. You are. You're like that high school friend who changed so completely the friendship couldn't survive.

Youuuu, bitch. I wish I had a boyfriend who rented me out Yankee Stadium and got me on the field for dinner. UNF. Hello spontaneous orgasms.


That's the closest I've gotten. So jealous right now of fictional characters.

That was a perfect opening! Why won't you tell him?! Gah, I want to love you, Amanda, but you make me want to hurt you more. Why do you make me want to hurt you? So stupid. He has much more to lose if this blows up, and he has more experience to deal with it (plus I'm pretty sure his publicist knows about it already). Sigh.

Amanda, you're doing it again. Play this smart, woman, damn! You're acting like an idiot when you're not. And tell Liam, for the love of God!

Speaking of, that scene was pretty amazing, why did it so abruptly end with no transition to the next scene? There was a lot that had to happen between the two points. That is really frustrating me.

For the record, alleged plagiarism like this is not a reason to P2P. You see it more now because of P2P.

Screw it. I was trying to hold off reading this until I finished the library books. But Goodreads put me in a foul mood. Some asshole called me out in Feedback, making me even more mad. And I'm not into anything I'm reading right now. So I'm going to read this because I'm excited for it and that is unusual.

Alicia (is beyond tired of your *ish) is 3% done with The Lawyer Bubble: A Profession in Crisis
The number of JDs awarded annually grew from thirty-eight thousand in 2001 to more than forty-four thousand in 2011, but legal employment opportunities have trended in the opposite direction: nine months after graduation, only about half of the class of 2011 had secured long-term full-time work requiring a legal degree.

. . . yep. Sigh.

I'm going to hurt myself rolling my eyes at this scene. I think I have at least once per paragraph so far. I hate stuff like this.

Ugh, why are you even meeting with that asshole? You don't owe her anything. Tell her to fuck off and move on with your life.

Why hasn't she told her parents? Letting this party go on at their place is ridiculous. Fight back, Amanda, damn!

*eye roll* Good God, can we not? I'm so tired of this trope. It's always trite and illogical on the character's part. Makes them look incredibly stupid.

Yes, exactly, Torrian, it's called "empathy" and it's not a bad thing. I'm glad he saw it that way. I'm so tired of book characters losing their minds over "pity". Like it's a ubiquitous rage-inducer.

Holy crap, what? A couple attracted to each other went on an actual date? Before having sex? And then finished it, without having sex on the first date?! Nowadays that's almost like spotting a romance unicorn.

This will not end well.

"I made mistakes. I made choices. I made myself who I was—not anyone else."

I'm glad she recognizes that fact, because she's made it sound like she was a victim of circumstances beyond her control this whole time and I kept thinking exactly what she said up there.

Heh, I just marathoned The Game on Netflix and that fake football team's name was the Sabers, too. I wonder if that's a go-to team name.

Er, why is this not in Mark's POV? She started when she was a child. He's the one I'm interested in seeing experience this. This always happens. Things are rarely in the POV in which I want them.
