Bad I hink he really does o normalize Pray for the Girl them Lauren DeStefano s Chemical Garden series is another difficult one onhat front First I guess I ll Engaged in Death talk about figuring out whohe author is and Ice Planet Barbarians Part 6 then I ll geto alking about he book and its messages in a minute Ms DeStefano is a wenty seven year old woman whom many have mistaken for a eenager Maybe in some ways hat is not a bad hing from a marketing perspective because it makes her relatable Baltimore Chronicles Volume 1 to her audience Otherwise infantilization bothers me and it bothers me when women play into it because Ihink it is usually manipulative but I guess I don The Omen t feeloo strongly about it compared o he other The Bleeding of the Stone thingshat make my head explode about his series What I actually want o alk about are Ms DeStefano s choices in dealing with her position as an author in he midst of reviewers so you ll have Calm Before The Storm to forgive me forhe digression or report me Frío / Subte tohe authorities if you wish I guess I ll put Vidar that digression athe end so you can choose Modern Albania: From Dictatorship to Democracy in Europe to read it or not It s kind of loooong and probably nobody cares athis point anyway My main Womens Infidelity 2 thought ishat when authors and Ms DeStefano is certainly not alone in Suspended Animation: Short

increasingly addicting I ll admit right now I am sort of shocked at myself for how engrossed I ve become with his rilogy It s definitely not like anything I ve categorized in he past as romantic
