What I’m Reading (6)

Posted on: August 7, 2009

Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, The

This was one of the books I requested the library inter-loan for me after reading the Roo series. And I’m gonna be blunt – I can’t stand this one. I’ve loved all of her other books so far (Roo series, Dramarama, How To Be Bad) but I just can’t stand this one. Granted, I’m only a few chapters in. I guess I just can’t stand the narrative. Thoughts on this? Should I continue?

Ballads of Suburbia

I stayed up past midnight to finish this one, bawled my eyes out, had dreams about it, and it was the first thing I thought about in the morning before I reread it. My review won’t come for a while but I just wanted to say that if you haven’t read this one yet, DO IT NOW. It’s even better than Joey Ramone and it flys past all other books. GET IT.

I’ve recently seen a lot of negative reviews on The Disreputable Frankie, which makes me more and more leery about reading it.

As for Ballads, I’m a little afraid fo that book. It partly sounds interesting, but then I’m told it’s riddled with drug passages, and for some reason I’ve developed a phobia towards reading about drugs and drug use.

Ballads of Suburbia sounds good, but I haven’t read it yet…I have no idea. Glad you liked it!

The other book, I don’t think I have even heard of it before.

Hmm I’ll admit I didn’t like the beginning too much for the Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, but I actually really liked the story. That just might be me though. It’s still up to you if you want to read it, but for me I honestly enjoyed it! 🙂
