We are two book ninjas – obviously. We love books (but only the good ones. But really, who enjoys reading bad books?) and this website is basically a place where we can rant and hyperventilate (not literally. Can someone really hyperventilate through a computer? Don’t answer that.) and scream over books we love or hate. And there are plenty of those. Occasionally we may ramble over other random things, but this is mainly a book site. No wonder, it says “books” in the URL.
But anyway, hi. Nice to meet you. Want to know what books we like? Well, if you want a more detailed version, go to the Top Tens page. For an abridged (and outdated) version, here:
- Unwind Trilogy
- Skinjacker Trilogy
- Chaos Walking Trilogy
- Rot and Ruin (well, one of us. The other would only give it 3 1/2 shuriken stars if she didn’t have the threat of getting her bodily organs being clawed out of her. (that would be me. And no, Yanni has not threatened to claw my organs out, yet. But I’m pretty sure one day…))
- Gone series
- Percy Jackson series (including Heroes of Olympus)
- Harry Potter Series (another we don’t agree on. I love it, but someone else won’t read it. Not to name any names…)
- Skulduggery Pleasant Series (Shut up, Yanni, I know you only think it’s okay, but I love it)
There are more, lots more, but these are the quick few. These are the ones that if you don’t like, you might not like this blog. Maybe you’ll hate it. Maybe you won’t. Just give it a try.
(and for reference, no we are not fans of the Twilight series (series, not saga. It’s not epic enough to be a saga.). We don’t hate it, we just don’t particularly like those books. They’re not for us. You’ll see that in the Twilight Review (if it exists yet. If it doesn’t, wait a while. I need to reread it so I can give my full, most likely biased opinion on it.) I’m pretty sure that makes people swing either one way or another. Either to checking out the reviews, or leaving this website because they know we will never mesh. So long guys, but for the rest of you that stayed, welcome.
