Maliciously Obedient  - Julia Kent

Okay so technically this book was apart of a bundle I bought. But since it is it's own individual story I'm counting it as a whole book read because it is and I can so what.

So I started this while I was in class. I was jumping from story to story honestly on my ereader. But I opened this file and begin this story and what can I say I liked it.

The characters were really well done. I really liked Lydia and I like how she was portrayed. I have to say I really liked how the author included feminism but not like BEAT YOU OVER THE HEAD WITH IT! It felt like I was talking to one of my girlfriends or something you know.

This book was really entertaining and even though the premise is a bit outlandish I kinda think it worked. At least for me it did haha. I loved this and I'm bidding my time until I can purchase the next volume.

Reading progress update: I've read 250 out of 444 pages.

We Were the Mulvaneys (Oprah's Book Club) - Joyce Carol Oates

This book is so engrossing. I've checked out another of Ms. Oates books from my library. I can't wait to read it. So much material to read.

Sylvia's work has been making a deep impression on me. Already I can see her influence in my writing. The poems are getting more personal, more lyrical than what I usually write.

Reading progress update: I've read 50 out of 393 pages.

The Serpent and the Pearl - Kate Quinn

I didn't read the blurb beforehand so I was not aware of what exactly was and her place in history haha.

Social Attitude Test

I stole this from the Misanthropic Reader haha.


Social Attitude Test


Political Values


Progressivism 80
Socialism 68.75
Tenderness 62.5

Your test scores indicate that you are a tender-minded progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a university professor. It appears that you are tolerant towards religion, and have a compassionate and sympathetic attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a humanist.

To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a considerate idealistic egalitarian with few strong convictions.

This concludes our analysis; we hope you found your results accurate, useful, and interesting.


I think this fits me for the most part. I agree with it. :)
