Last week I actually read two books. So, I’m pretty sure that means I’m brilliant and also confirms I’m literate for those who were in doubt (you know who you are). I couldn’t decide which one to review and I felt like reviewing them both would just be shoving it in your faces how brilliant I am and make you feel bad about yourself. And I don’t want to do that. I care about you. So, I flipped a coin. But then I felt like the loser of the coin toss would feel like I didn’t love it very much and the winner of the coin toss would become really unbearably cocky. Why is life so difficult? Why does my extraordinary genius cause me so much pain? So, then I decided that I would review them both but only use 10 words for each. That seemed fair to the books and also it isn’t like I’m shoving my brilliance in your face because, how arrogant can 10 words be? And also, you can say to yourself, “That Girl on the Contrary thinks she’s so smart but she can’t even string these words together coherently. She’s barely literate. So what if she read two books? She probably didn’t even read them but actually listened to audio-books. ” (FYI- I did actually read them. And I thought we covered at the beginning of this post that my literacy wasn’t in question. Why do you keep bringing it up? Sheesh. It hurts my feelings.)
The Gathering Storm by Bodie and Brock Thoene. Christian. Historical. Fiction. Compelling. Historically accurate. Mystical. Curious. Sweet. Love.
Bossypants by Tina Fey. Hilarious. Interesting. Empowering. Inspiring. Love. Her. Comedy. Realistic. Intelligent. Laugh.
So, there you have it. 10 words per book. No showing off. I promise I am literate so stop accusing me of not being literate.
