Chapter by Chapter review: Tyra Banks’ “Modelland” Chapter 25

Well, would you look at that! It’s not even a whole month yet and I’m already posting another installment of my chapter by chapter review of Tyra Banks’ “Modelland”! The world must be coming to an end!

When we last left the Bellas, Dylan was running away from the W.O.W. class to probably eat her feelings, and Tookie and Naomi Campbell stand-in Shiraz Shiraz have gone chasing after her so she doesn’t eat her own weight in pies or something.

They end up chasing Dylan into a plaid cube that smelled strangely of wet fur. There are so many lesbian hipster jokes I could make right now but I will resist from doing so.

Read ALL the books!

Victory!

I don’t know about you guys, but I found 2011 to just be a very bleurgh year, to say the least. It seemed like there was just a general malaise that seemed to infect the world the past year — earthquakes, tsunamis, typhoons, flooding. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one happy to see the back of last year.

Book review: Anne Rice’s “Of Love and Evil”

I was an Anne Rice fanboy.

I still remember reading “interview with a Vampire” on the jeepney home from school, and thinking that there couldn’t possibly be anything more awesome than gay vampires who sleep in coffins together.

Since then, she’s had a devoted follower in me. I have almost all of her books, and those I couldn’t buy, I stole. Even if some of her books kind of started to dip in quality after “The Queen of the Damned”, I still bought each and everyone, being one of the Anne Rice faithful.

Her return to Christianity, however, was sort of the line in the sand for me. I didn’t pick up any of her “Christ the Lord” books, and definitely didn’t even venture anywhere near “Called Out of Darkness“. I just felt like it was a betrayal.

I did, however, give “Angel Time” a chance. And to put it bluntly, I thought it sucked (haha), especially since I had been reading John Lindqvist’s excellent “Let The Right One In” alongside it. It just paled in comaprison.

I thought that I wouldn’t even bother reading “Of Love and Evil” once it came out, but then I thought that if I could give Becca Fitzpatrick a second chance, surely Anne deserved it as well?

In which I am sorely disappointed
