Read Rachel Caine's Weather warden series. It seemed really interesting the the two first books were good. The main character, Joanne, fell in love with a djinn. David is a nice character so I was like 'yay' and then the third book happened. Srsly.

It's great to have trust in a relationship. "Of course I trust you" sort of thing but David took it a bit too far for my liking. In the middle of sex scene D started asking if J trusted him and J was sceptical at first but then said yes. And oh, lord, I think he used some kind of spell to make her pregnant. Without telling her. And it was for her protection.

He didn't even ask whether she wanted a child!? Or what she thought about children or anything! Even though it was for her protection and it did save her but still! I just read it open mouthed and wondered was the author really, really serious!? And then I did my all-time-favourite-thing and went to Amazon to read user comments about the book and none of them said anything about it.

"Do you trust me?"
"*mumbling a spell in djinn language*"
MC: It's. It's love!

and zam, she's pregnant. And she wasn't even that angry about it. Urgh. I just can't get over it, which is the reason I haven't started yet reading the fourth book.

One Amazon reviewer actually says "She learns about the nature of love."

YES! The nature of love! Get the woman pregnant - screw pro-choice etc! Yes! Everyone wants babies!

*head explodes*

Ah. *rebuilds her head* Gandalf died. I'm watching Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and reading Arda slash. Legolas and Elrohir. I think Legolas/the twins are the best ménage out there ^.^

And on another sidenote: Laurell K. Hamilton amuses me. She claims to be the pioneer of her genre. LOL.

What. The. Fuck.

Read Fandom_Wank and the childfree posts in the memories over at JournalFen if you want, though. That's some of the most amusing stuff I've seen this year. The amount of WANK. Seriously. Wank wank wank. Wankery.

WANKERY, I tell you.
