I'm a culture junkie who works at a bookstore. Pop, high-brow, junk -- it's all good. I try and consume it all. I read tons, especially young adult fiction. I also love quirky, offbeat novels; cultural analysis; mythology; girly fiction; fantasy; screwball romantic comedies; books with extremely flawed characters, yet somehow you really empathize with them; nonlinear narratives and language play.

Juliet Immortal

Juliet Immortal (Juliet Immortal #1) - Stacey Jay I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. To be honest, while probably an affront to some that Romeo is a jerk who turned evil while Juliet was a naive girl tricked into being immortal and helping soul mates.I found that characterization interesting, as well as some of the plots, so even with its lulls, I enjoyed the concept. Interesting re-telling, if odd.
