In light of the upcoming epic reread of Harry Potter, I decided to poke around and find my house!
The sorting hat says that I belong in Ravenclaw!<
Said Ravenclaw, "We'll teach those whose intelligence is surest."
Ravenclaw students tend to be clever, witty, intelligent, and knowledgeable.
Notable residents include Cho Chang and Padma Patil (objects of Harry and Ron's affections), and Luna Lovegood (daughter of The Quibbler magazine's editor).
This is why I haven't been reading lately, obsessively making the perfect bunny!
I wouldn't like me if I saw my own shelf on BL.
Only time can tell, and right now I have some smut to read!
There is more to this quote, but I'll stop now because most likely you stopped reading. I'm sharing this with you to express my point of this being the most boring book I've ever read. There is NOTHING about this entire cluster of words that is relative to the story. Not a damn word. Is it necessary to talk about a tattoo shop owner replacing a glass case? NO. You know why? It's like one of those assumed things like, we know they eat and shit and sleep but we don't NEED TO READ ABOUT THE MUNDANE DETAILS. If you, the author feels it's really necessary to the plot to address cleaning up broken glass and watching his employees, let's go ahead and say something like this:
"I'm going to have to call and get this replaced on Tuesday when the shop opens up again, in the mean time I need to figure out how to fix Tera's tattoo."
One fucking sentence.
It's also largely irrelevant and any decent editor would cut it because THE WHOLE STORY IS ABOUT FIXING TERA'S TATOO.
I'm in caps lock because I am actually yelling.
This book is so boring. I have never heard a man talk so much about mundane shit. If this is what they are thinking all of the time, no wonder they always respond with "nothing" when you ask them what is on their mind. They are not being facetious, they are simply being honest.
I want to like Gage (Ugh, really? That's the best name you could come up with? I have a real issue when MC's have ridiculous names, let's take this guy WHO CAN FEEL MAGIC and give him some mundane name filled with all sorts of stigma. Barf) and his world. It's actually INTERESTING. Gasp! Warlocks are psychos, elves, wood nymphs, and trolls abound all sort of hiding in plain sight, you can do magic with tattoos and vampires have OCD, oh and grim reapers are real and they work for a union (think Dead Like Me). It has all these great elements but I'm so bored, it's so wordy, his inner voice sounds a little too female and I keep having to reminds myself that it's Gage. I feel no understanding or connection with him, I mostly think he's stupid.
He is gearing up for some battle for his life and he has to do it without getting caught using magic, which of course is not going to happen. I'm bored of this. I'm done. I don't care what happens to any of these characters. I'm not finishing this book, but I gave it 2 stars because frankly, the world is awesome.
I bid you adieu, lack luster waste of time!
