I'm Horrible D:

SORRYYYYYY! I disappeared on you guys. Sorry sorry sorry sorry. School's been really bleh, and I procrastinated on finishing all of my summer reading assignments so I was pulling all nighters, not getting any sleep, and overall damaging my health lol. BUT I'M DONE! And I just read a book in a day yesterday (Anna and the French Kiss, it was awesome!) and I have three reviews coming up. Now that I don't have any more books where I need to annotate every single page, I'll be reading a lot faster again. Which means more reviews. Yay.

Okay, so that's it for my apologies/excuses. I'll be more active again, I promise! Okay, now I'm gonna go and read so I'll have more to post on here. :D

Friday Memes (4)

This week's question:

Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one?

Hmm. No, I don't think I've ever wanted the villain to win. At least, I don't remember wanting the villain to win. But there have been times when the protagonist was just so whiny and annoying and just under-developed that I may not have wanted him/her to succeed. But no, I generally want the people who try to destroy the world to lose.

This week's question is:
“Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?”

I primarily read YA books. It would completely devastate me if authors stopped writing YA. It's just such a diverse genre. However, if there really was no more YA, I guess I would go into reading other fiction. And if that isn't enough, I'll pick up some classics and start reading those. I've always wished that I read more classics.

This week's question:
Books to Television: Which books would you love 
to see made in to a TV series? or movie?

Hmm. This is a hard one since it seems like every books is being made into either a TV series or a movie these days. I kind of wish it wasn't like that. I miss being able to imagine characters and settings in your head without having a movie mess up how you see everything. For example, I liked Twilight before I saw the movies. To me, the movies pointed out small imperfections about the books that kept building up and building up until it got to the point where I couldn't read the books anymore. I don't want that to happen again. And honestly, I can't think of any book I would want to be made into a TV show or a movie that isn't already in production. But I will say that I am ridiculously excited for the Mortal Instruments movie and the Hunger Games movie. 

And I have to say that when a movie is done well, it really enhances my experience with the book. But sadly, that's not as common as the opposite D:

But yeah, Mortal Instruments and Hunger Games, wooo!
