We're half way through the year and I have reviewed precisely two books here at Lady Business (along with a handful elsewhere). I guess that means it's time for a mid-year roundup of my bookish favs and fails, with bonus stats, to get somewhere approaching up to date. Thankfully I did the maths and this year has contained 100% less bookish fail than previous years so no need to break out gifs of horror.

Oh alright then, just the one. For fun.

On one hand, I can't believe I let Ira suck me into the shitshow about three dudes who really hate themselves. On the other hand, I'm wondering why it took so long, because I'm weak, and also Misha Collins. Seriously, I love that guy. What an asshole.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
