1) These books. OMG THESE BOOKS. Starting part two of book three. Omg I want to carry Finnick around in a marsupial pouch to keep him safe.

2) omg Dragon Age. Yeah make sure you play Awakening and import your game into DAII. They actually remind me a lot of the Hunger Games. This is a week for damn good storytelling! :D

3) So glad you liked the soup place! (Oomph! Sorry your foot was falling asleep!) That place is actually really popular with students because it's like the most amazing soup for reasonable prices. Gawbless 'em.


And yeah, I have Awakening, too, so I will play it! And the soup was exciting!

In book 2, Finnick annoyed me. That wasn't the case with book 3. -evil grin-

I think that Finnick annoys Katniss at first, which is why we're supposed to start out thinking he's annoying, too, and then it turns out he has more depth of character. Unless he stopped annoying you because of what the evil grin is :-P

Your mother's quote in the New York Times is awesome.

I'm reading Miss Peregrine's myself right now; just finished chapter 9. In some ways, it's *less* childish than I expected. The language is wonderful, but sort of dense. Given the cover photo, I expected it to be more girl-centered. The adjustment has been a bit of a slog.

I'm enjoying it, mind you, but not in the same way that I expected to.

See, I had heard the premise of the book as a concept novel that revolved around found photographs, so I was expecting something a bit pretentious and arty, but it's a very straightforward story. And the language is actually way less dense and more direct than I was expecting...but I also just finished Feed which is incredibly highly stylized. So it might be relative.

Also, it has way more of a linear plot than I expected.

So, how did you feel about this season of The Walking Dead?

The season isn't over! There is more in February, it's just on break for the holidays!

I feel like they're expanding their focus to more of the side characters, which I like. I like that they've been spending more time on Glen and Daryl especially.

I was kind of let down by the "big reveal" since it was sort of what I was expecting and not really that surprising. I was also disappointed that they really only spent a small part of a single episode dealing with Herschel's attempts to rescue Walkers before killing everyone in the barn. It would have been neat to see more of that dynamic before they got killed off.
