Let's Talk About Books Today

These past few weeks, I am as fun as a snail on a mission to watch a glass blade grow.

I eat, sleep, wake up, check my emails, Twitter and slowly drift back to sleep. Yup. An absolute bag full of FUN, FUN, FUN.

I’ve been reading the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan these few days to entertain myself and if you haven’t read any of Rick Riordan’s books, you miss 40% of excitement in your life. When you’re dying, you look back at what you’ve achieve and you realize there’s something huge you’ve been missing in your life and the angel of death gleefully wave one of Rick Riordan’s books while smirking evilly and you’ll beat yourself to death for NOT READING ONE OF THE BESTEST BOOKS IN THE UNIVERSE OH MY GOD YOU MISS SO MUCH OF LIFE I PITY THE FOOL YOU ARE.

I suggest you start with Percy Jackson and the Olympians the series. Yeah, yeah I know you watched the movie already and it’s so lame you spent the whole time updating your FB status with “THIS IS FUCKING LAME, MAN” and all your friends LIKE your status and you feel like awesome coz people LIKE your LAME status. Wow. You’re life is as exciting as a snail on a mission to watch a glass blade grow.

I don’t know how many times I’ve said this but people just keep on coming to me and said, “B-b-b-but why should I read when I can watch the movie?” or classic response, “B-b-b-but the movie sucks monkey brains! So the books must sucks too” PEOPLE OF ALL AGES, THE BOOKS ARE ALWAYS BETTER THAN ITS MOVIE. Take Harry Potter for instance. For those dungbrains who don’t read Harry Potter but just watch the movie, they would be like “The movies? MEH” but once they read the book, KAPOW! YOU’RE TRANSPORTED TO ANOTHER DIMENSION WHERE LIFE IS SO MUCH EXCITING THAN YOUR DULL REALITY. So many witty and important dialogues are not included in the movie. So many scenes changed. So many puzzle and mind blowing SUUURRRPRRIIIISEEEES spoils because in the movie, they don’t just drop hints; They WROTE IT ON THE ACTOR’S FACES AND THE ACTORS PRACTICALLY SHOUT IT FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE MOVIE. Fun factory these people, no?

Same goes with Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief’s movie. I thank my good friend, Rouselleg for psychologically influence me to read the books (she tweeted about the Percy Jackson. Every. Second. Of. The. Day) but I love her all the same and return the favor by getting Felicakes to buy the book too (insert evil chortle)

After Percy Jackson and the Olympians, I continued with Percy Jackson’s World by reading the second series: Heroes of Olympus. While waiting for Son of Neptune (the second book) to come out this October, I bought Kane Chronicles. Two words: FANTASTICALLY. ADDICTIVE.

Still not convince enough to read the book? Then, my dear, you miss 40% of your life. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk (sound ceiling lizard makes)


P/s Yes, yes. It's a book for kids. But you watch Porn right? And Porn are for those NOT GETTING SOME and SICK. So, which one are you?
