yes i did.

here was my train of thought: i never liked the fact that Snape was given so much of a sappy back story. really, i think JK Rowling made Snape too sympathetic. like 'oh we're supposed to feel sorry for you because you loved Lily even though you really didnt give a **** if her son or husband died.'

but then i ended up liking Snape and Lily together and I wrote that based on the comic i saw.

so i say, damn you jk rowling for making me care about the character i hated with a passion since book 1.

and the link is just what 'damn you' reminded me of =p. i always think of that scene whenever i say 'damn you!' XD

So, I'm trying to decide what to read next. Here's a list of potential books and my reasons:

American Gods: because Neil Gaiman wrote it. When I tried reading it once it was a little bit too intense for me. But I think I'm mature enough to actually get through it.

50 Shades of Grey: because I read the first two chapters and they're friggin hilarious. I mean, I'm obviously going to skip over the MA parts but my god this book is so atrocious it's entertaining. And, it helps if you've read Twilight. I mean...I kid you not, Jacob's character from Twilight is named Jose` lol wtf.

Sherlock Holmes: currently on a Sign of Four. There's no way I'll read all 1000 + pages of the Sherlock Holmes stories in one go but I figure I might want to go where I left off at the Sign of Four.

Necromancer (or something): it's some scifi book that essentially 'started' the movement of science fiction in the 80s. its really popular allegedly.

Lord of the Rings: pretty self explanatory: started reading the first one but then I got bored so I thought I might try to read it again lol.

Sense and Sensibility: the next Jane Austen novel I'm on.

And yeah....I've got a pretty long list. The last book I read was about Nerd Culture and it was really a disappointment.

I heard the Shades of Grey book is just outright porn, so why bother? Our local library even refused to buy it because "It's noting more then porn pasted into a book."

I'd try the LoTR and maybe The Hobbit, I read that for school. It was pretty interesting and you could read it before the movie comes out.

Well the first two chapters didnt have porn. And I know about that, I was thinking about skipping over those parts and just reading the other ridiculous aspects of the plot. I mean, the book is just friggin hysterical.

I've already read the Hobbit. Remember Lee, we had a whole conversation about how I was deprived of reading it in school and then you said you had a project to do for it where you had to make cards or something?

Sounds about right, I made trading cards for all the characters. That was fun and my teacher liked it.

I know, you just confirmed that it was cards like I thought. Honestly, when I said cards, I thought I was just making that part up XD.

I'm not sure if you would like it, but you could try Floatplane Notebooks.

But I read FloatPlane NoteBooks in school. It was a really nice story, bittersweet to. It's about a Southern family and it kind of has the same theme our Avatar FF does where each chapter is the main focus of one of the family members (through the different years)

We all got assigned different books and groups, our group made a movie about the different segments for ours. It was more of a goofy comedy though (unintentionally)

I know, I read the summary. But I want to read something on my list of things to read. I mean, Sherlock Holmes was on another class' curriculum. I was unfortunately not in that class. And American Gods was for book club.

So I got American Gods from the library.

and I finally found 50 Shades of Grey online. because apparently my library pulled the book from the shelf.

AND THEY SHOULD.

Seriously, forget about the 'risque' bits of this book. It just sucks. Really, it's hysterical as to just how bad it is. I don't understand how this book got published. I really don't. I'm on chapter 5 and I got bored with it after the hilarity of the first two chapters. not sure if I'll actually finish it because...like I said...it's bad. I mean, how many times can you mention 1. that Christian grey has gray eyes and likes to wear the color gray (omg are you friggin serious) and 2. that you (Ana) like to sit by fireplaces reading classic British literature. I mean, she says this every other sentence I feel like. or, at least, once a page.

And I still can't get over Jose Rodriguez. lol it's borderline racist on so many levels. XD
