4. Leaving the Atocha Station by Ben Lerner

Wonder if Ben Lerner points to his own book when teaching his students what a Mary Sue is?

7. Stolen World by Jennie Erin Smith
8. The Black Company by Glen Cook

    UGHHHHHHHAL;SDFJSAKDLF A VISIT FROM THE GOON SQUAD – I loathed this book as well. LOATHED. Thank you, thank you, thank you for not just going with the masses and honestly reviewing it as terrible. I’m going to have to read your review now that I’ve posted this ridiculous comment making me look like a crazy person.
