This #badsummary can be broken down way too short - or does it make it even better??

Short: ➿The nanny has an affair with her boss, then his wife burns down the house.➿

Long: ➿So this poor girl gets a job as a nanny and gets seduced by her boss (fyi: he sometimes wears drag). Then she finds out he's already married, but after his wife burns down the house they get hitched anyways. She also sees a lot of ghosts and wins the lottery. The end.➿

Smrloomis Also prefer the shorter version, but both are good! 😂 8mo
SW-T Both good but really liked the short version 😂 8mo
jmtrivera Short version for the win! 8mo

This girl finds a magical world, but her siblings think she's crazy and a liar. This continues until one day her brother also finds it, even though he keeps calling her a liar because he's planning on selling out his siblings for candy. They then all wander in the snow a lot until the lion breathes on stuff and defeats the evil witch. Also, this all takes place in a closet.

Smrloomis Actually, I think that summary is pretty good! 😂 8mo
jmtrivera @Smrloomis 😂 It sounds crazy, but it's accurate! 8mo

The Song of Achilles | Madeline Miller

What did I read? An insanely protracted doomed love story between a bumbling idiot and an angry golden-haired beautiful boy, who has a mother that's a cross between Maleficent and an Asian female ghost who keeps baring her teeth. Next time, pls don't use a writer's creds (degree in Latin Greek etc) to feature a book that's supposed to be a "retelling" of an epic. Nope. This is fanfiction, at best. Sorry to those who loved this one ? Don't hate me

DivineDiana An honest review is always welcome. Still on my TBR! 8mo
fleeting @DivineDiana would still recommend as a fast read to pass the time! It's not a bail, just quite disappointing. 😕 8mo
tpixie lol this could be added to the #BadSummary that i saw this am 8mo
fleeting @tpixie huh, didn't know that was a thing! Haha this is rather fitting for that, indeed! 8mo
tpixie @fleeting 😊 8mo
