I like to read anything that tells a good story, duh ;) Genre doesn't really matter much but I tend to read dark fiction and fantasy the most. I skip chick lit and romance novels with a few exceptions for the extraordinary.


My ratings system:

5 stars - ADORED; plan to read over and over and over.

4 stars - ENJOYED; will likely read once or twice more.

3 stars - LIKED; may or may not read again ... someday.

1 stars - I didn't enjoy the story and was lucky to finish.

0 stars - I couldn't or wouldn't finish for reasons that may or may not be listed in the review box.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World (Scott Pilgrim #2) by Bryan Lee O'Malley

Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World 2 - Bryan Lee O'Malley

Rating: 3.5 of 5


Another fun read. My response to Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World is pretty much the same as to Scott Pilgrim #1. The biggest difference being this one features one of my favorite scenes...


Scott: "Garlic bread is my favourite food. I could honestly eat it for every meal, or just all the time without even stopping."


Ramona: "You'd get fat."Scott: "Bread makes you fat??"


I look forward to reading #3.
