ARC Review: Messenger of Fear

I remembered my name – Mara. But, standing in that ghostly place, faced with the solemn young man in the black coat with silver skulls for buttons, I could recall nothing else about myself.

And then the games began.

The Messenger sees the darkness in young hearts, and the damage it inflicts upon the world. If they go unpunished, he offers the wicked a game. Win, and they can go free. Lose, and they will live out their greatest fear.

But what does any of this have to do with Mara? She is about to find out …

This whole book reads like someone turned to Michael Grant and said “hey, you’re good at scaring the bejeezus out of kids.  Want to just do that for like 250 pages?”  The book lacks a real plot arc and instead comes off as a character study with random interludes of “shitthefuckWHAT?” but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.  If you come into it forewarned, it’s a really good character study + random horror.  This is the author’s forte, after all, distilled into its most concentrated form.

My aunt went to a strip club and her buddy tried to buy her a buy her a lap dance. He kept insisting, she kept saying “I don’t want one,” and finally the stripper said “I know what you want. Follow me.”

The guy followed them thinking her was going to get to see something good, but she took my aunt in the back room and let her try on all the shoes. And it was *awesome.*

Actually, I don’t get a lot of flak for what I do.  *knock on wood*  I’m not sure why, but the trolls are few and far between and generally stick to mild expressions of displeasure.  Mostly I just get random one-off messages from Katniss fans and as long as I ignore them it fizzles off into a non-issue.

On the other hand, I always smile at lovely readers who take the time to be lovely to me.  Thank you so much. :D

City of Heavenly Fire: Part 15

Clary and her group walk in silence over to the hell portal.  Since “silence” means they can’t talk about the plot, Clary steps in and thinks about the plot instead.  Because heaven forbid we look forward.

"Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons."

Tumbling over the past year and a half has made me see the problems of gender roles that exist in media, but sometimes it gets to the point where I over analyze every single piece of television or film that I come across. (However this in no way means that I think feminist media criticism is wrong, or should be avoided!) Mostly I just over think everything.

This is awesome!

PERFECT

TOOK THE BIG FINAL TEST.

NOT AT ALL CONFIDENT IN MY PERFORMANCE.

HAVE TO WAIT OVER TWO HOURS FOR THE RESULT.

*incoherent screaming*

I got the worst grade I’ve ever gotten in this course.

But it was still a passing grade.

I’ll take it.
