50BC #18 – Nightlight by The Harvard Lampoon

Title: Nightlight: A Parody
Author: The Harvard Lampoon
Published: 2009
Summary: You think you know this story, but do you? Edwart Mullen, Belle Goose, Switchblade? All sounds lovingly familiar, but wait until you actually open this up. You’ll laugh so hard you won’t be able to govern a country.

This book was really short and so funny! I really recommend it, even if you’ve never touched anything Twilight Saga related because I think you’ll have so much fun with it. Edwart made me laugh the hardest, I think. I was reading this book mostly in public and kept getting weird looks due to my gigglesnorting.

I randomly found this at my local library and I’m really thankful! It gave me an hour of distressing before the first day of my current classes and it really helped. I definitely recommend this book.


50BC #17 – The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor

Title: The Looking Glass Wars
Author: Frank Beddor
Series: The Looking Glass Wars
Published: 2006
Summary: Lewis Carroll got it all wrong! This is what really happened in Wonderland.

This book was fabulous! Honestly, it definitely feels like this more than likely is/was the “real” story of Alyss/Alice. Some of the scenes in the beginning were a bit hard to read because of Beddor’s style (his style of writing and my style of reading didn’t see eye to eye for the first few chapters, but they were willing to work together to get through that rough patch), but I made it through and found myself utterly enjoying the work.

I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book in this series and I definitely cannot wait until I can play more Card Soldier Wars! I hope you all choose to read this book.
