I'm Thalia! I run a book blog called Pictures in the Words and I hope to be an editor for YA fiction. I'm a GoodReads refugee!
So, this is from that time when books always started out with a great summary of pretty much everything that happened in the last book, which I forgot how completely and totally boring that is when you read them close together.
And, well, I'm still not sold on Rowling's writing. I just don't like the style, or how distant I still feel from the characters. I just can't immerse myself in it. I know it's a fantasy book, but it feels much too unrealistic. With the movies, I can buy into what happens because it feels real for them--this is different. I don't know how to explain it. I'm trying to get into this one, but so far, the first one was better.
(I can already feel my dislike for Ginny mounting, and she hasn't even really done anything yet.)
