So, I should read these books? I saw them at B&N, and I thought they looked interesting. If you think they’re good, they’ll go on the reading list.
Well, I’ve only read the first ones, but the others sound like they get more and more awesome as they go on.
Anyway, the first book started off with a fairly childish narration style, which sort of put me off at first — even though the main characters are 13, 15, and 16, I don’t always want it to sound like it is? But as the novel progresses, the tone matures a lot as the characters do, which is always awesome.
And I never felt overly bothered by the subject matter until he actually describes an unwind process. So gird yourself for intense feels.
But overall, it’s a very great book. Fairly fast-paced all the way through. I might pick up the others later this year or next year, depending on how my reading list progresses aha

I am emotionally exhausted. Not just in the way that comes with cram-finishing a book. But the kind of exhausted that comes with spending five minutes nearly sobbing over a character I didn’t even like. But the ending of that book is really well done ughhh I’m emotionally compromised.
For now, I’m going to go put Dianne’s book onto my kindle and read that instead of anything I should be reading because reasons.
- He fought a gang of bikers and won because they were keeping his mother awake at night.
- He is skilled at activities such as sewing and knitting and he’s ridiculously good at it, to the point that he can realistically give lessons and will run Tatsumi Textiles as an adult.
- His S. Link had him help out a child with their missing doll while coming to terms with his deceased father, his parents’ effects on his upbringing, and his past in general.
- Even though he sometimes gets involved in Yosuke’s bullshit, he’s never the one to willingly join in and always has to get manipulated into it because he won’t take part in it otherwise.
- His critical hit involves him tossing his weapon at the target, kicking them, and then punching them hard enough to cause them to slide, even if they’re like twice his size.
- When Naoto’s Shadow was being a Shadow, Kanji was the only one to really “get” what was going on and told everyone to let her let it all out and that they’ll kick the Shadow’s ass like usual.
- Even though he’s hot-headed, he’s always willing to apologize for his actions and never makes excuses for them.
- Golden gave him Power Charge, which combined with Primal Force, was fucking great.
- His way of saving you from a fatal blow is by drop-kicking you out of the way.
- He was willing to stop dying his hair in an attempt to change himself to not try to appear as a tough guy anymore.
- All of his lines are great thanks to Troy Baker and Matt Mercer being good at voicing him.
- He ate six Topsicles, which was more than Teddie’s five.
So Nicholas Cage came to the park yesterday and all day, Stephen wanted to go and see him in his cabana and everyone kept saying “No, Stephen, you can’t do that”.
At the very end of the day, Matt finally says “okay, fine, just go” and Stephen gets up and runs out of the office, so prepared to just run all the way up to the cabana. No more than ten seconds after he left, though, Nicholas Cage just walks right past the window.
Stephen never got to saw him. Matt couldn’t stop laughing.
