Tee hee!!! Lisa’s confession makes me laugh, ’cause I’m kind of the same way (although my book-hoarding kicks in hard, just like Lisa’s but mine is for fantasy books – I’ll explain later). But for some of you that might not know the terms she’s referring to, they’re made-up terms by our crew here to distinguish between certain genres.
So here’s a little hint to help you understand what she means for when you read her confession:
“Death Club books” are the books that some of us (so MANY of us) love even though an important character might… die. Okay, or, I’ll just come right out and say it. Dies. Most definitely (although we try to avoid saying that, since we don’t like to spoil books). But once it becomes known (or some INSIST on the spoiler), it becomes a part of the unofficial “death club” list. Obviously, I haven’t made that list (not officially) since that would be… wayyyyyyy tooooo spoilerish.
Marmy books are those that have a crazy twist, or jaw-dropping ending, or a throw-your-kindle across the room type of moment that you’ll never forget, and might actually tear your heart out, and that MIGHT turn off some readers that are looking for a more… light-hearted or promised “HEA type” of book. BUT BUT BUT!!! They could VERY WELL have an HEA. Just that the journey there is a train-wreck of “Marmyness” (P.S. Marmy comes from mixing the names Maryse & Amy (Marmy) because we both tend to lose our minds and our hearts, over the same CRAZY stories).
And Lisa has an issue with those. She says:
Lisa: Book confessions. I love it.
My most ridiculous book habit (I have a few) would be buying the the crazy Marmy’s and death books I know damn well Im too chicken-sh!t to read and then filing them in my Pandora Box file on my kindle.
Never to open them. Its fear of missing out. And a waste of funds.
Oh. And I sniff books.
What books do you one click that you can’t help but collect, but suspect you might never read?
