why have i been reviewing so many of these silly little books lately?
i am so glad you asked, imaginary interviewer! this whole week i have been struggling through The Abominable, not because it is bad, but because i have been so busy at/exhausted from work and i miss my daily review-writing regimen, plus goodreads has been so gloomy lately, we need a little fun, plus-plus—holiday season is upon us and who doesn’t like giving/getting books like this for holiday? no one! except those poor humorless bastards who turn their nose up at anything that even smells like entertainment over intellectual rigor. to you, i thumb my adorable nose. get over your damn selves and LOOK AT THIS T-REX TRYING TO DO THINGS!
