Bitsy's Books

Note: I'm uploading my books from Goodreads and since there are like 200+ it's going to take awhile. The uploading seems a bit wonky too, so hang with me as I fix things. Also there may be spoilers until I can make all the appropriate tags.


I'm an ex-English Major who, sick of reading classics after college, decided to read all the trashy books I didn't before because I was too snobby. Since graduating, I've entertained myself with comics, YA, and romance novels, finding out they can not only be decently written, but superbly written. I've since recovered from my classics aversion, but I'm now more open-minded reader willing to read from any genre. If a book has kick-ass heroines and/or witty banter and/or takes place in a different time or place (including fantasy settings), I will most likely fall in love with it. My favorite authors are Jane Austen, Shakespeare, E.M. Forster, Meljean Brook, Sarah Rees Brennan, Rachel Hartman, Catherynne M. Valente, and Aliette de Bodard.

Warm Bodies - Isaac Marion I first became interested in this book after hearing about the movie. I love me some Nick Hoult (have you SEEN A Single Man?) and the unique premise of a Romeo and Juliet-based zombie romance made me pick it up. However, the pretentious prose with the very lazy story structure and character development (Julie is textbook Manic Pixie Dream Girl) made for strange reading. It’s a great first book, but it’s exactly that – obviously a writer’s first book. So while I think Warm Bodies is an interesting book that definitely deserves to be read despite it's faults, my Book ADD caused me to drop it.
