Dear everyone who told me to read The Hunger...
Screw you. I have now had about eight hours of sleep in the last three days and have done no work on my essay that’s due in for Wednesday. This is due to spending my days piddling around on the internet and pretending to work, and then spending my nights reading these bloody books. I hope you’re all pleased with yourselves. Regards, Rosa.
ashheapsandmillionaires asked: Oi, dickface, young adult fiction is my FAVOURITE THING EVER. And as we both know I have no problem getting laid.

Anonymous asked: I have to say, I think that the fact that you won't read YA is a little silly. I'm 23 and I read it. Also, some of the YA that has come out recently is extremely well written, with a lot of meaning and some of it is much better than some of the adult fiction that I have read recently. If it's something that you think you may find interesting, read it. It shouldn't matter what...
You guys I have a serious issue.
So here’s the thing. It’s a guilty thing and a bad thing and I’m sorry but - I think I want to read The Hunger Games. Here are my issues: I want to read it because everyone else is reading it. This is wrong and bad. I want to read it because the film looks good. This is wronger and badder. I want to read it because I have a crush on the actress who plays the lead in the...
