Review: Lullaby
Lullaby - Jonathan Maberry,Scott Brick

So. So. Creepy.  I am very, very happy that my children are not babies.  Also, glad I'm smart enough not to ever entertain the idea of buying a house that is haunted.  

 

This was a short, but entertaining audiobook.  Interesting story and more creepy than scary.  Will definitely check out more by the author.

Dark Force Rising - Timothy Zahn

 

I'm really unsure how this trilogy ended up on the SF/F list that I'm reading.  One the best?  Really?

 

While reading it, I am never immersed, I'm always conscious that I'm reading.

Seraph of the End: Guren Ichinose's Catastrophe at 16 Omnibus (2-in-1 Edition), Vol.1 - Yamato Yamamoto,Takaya Kagami

Aaaand here it is, complete with illustration. SHe's completely humiliated, stripped and beaten by Seishiro and need Guren to come save her despite the fact she was supposed to be traaaained and all that. Also all the males are jeering for her to be stripped because they are just animals and we have to teach the males reading this book that's how they should act. That women are weak sex objects that are only there for male pleasure and that if you have one you need to protect it because she can't do it herself.

 

This is why I hate shounen. Every fucking story plays out like this, yet everyone is all "OOooh this story is SO GOOD!" It's the same damn misogynistic male power fantasy that plays out exactly the same damn way every fucking time. Yet people slurp it up.

Oh look Shigure lost.. of course.

Also I've noticed the way the men are just left to talk about the women and nobody calls them out. It's like training males to be rapists. "It's OK to say this stuff, see nobody says anything even the hero agrees with you."

 

Of course Shigure bursts into tears. Even the stoic women have to cry and be vulnerable, be soft, be fuckable for males as males don't want to shove their dick into a stone of whatever shit males think women are when they aren't all cast from a mold and have their own emotions.
