30 Day Book and Literature Challenge

Day 16. A book you haven’t read and have no intention of ever reading.

Sweet by Julie Burchill.

I read the first book, ‘Sugar Rush’ and really didn’t like it. I thought that maybe it was because I was an adult when I read it and it’s intended for teenage readers, so maybe I would’ve liked it when I was a teenager. But thinking about it more and reading some reviews on Goodreads, I reckon the book was just bad.

But the sequal sounds even worse! While Sugar Rush was at least about a teenage girl coming to terms with her sexuality, Sweet is seemingly just about Sugar being a chavvy bitch who never learns or grows as a character. She arrives home from prison to find out that her husband has left with their daughter, and she’s more upset that he’s taken her I-Pod!

Surprisingly, the tv adaptation was actually very good so I’d definitely reccomend that.

See the whole challenge here.

Since I’ve just moved abroad, I have to wait a day for every new episode of Doctor Who so I’m a little behind the immediate reactions. Am I the only one who really hated ‘Listen’?

Anonymous asked: Hey Z! I was wondering if you knew of any writing guides on how to properly play a character with a learning disability. I'd be so grateful if you could link me to one, please! Thank you so much for your time and have a wonderful day.

thetrolliestcritic:

There is always Alex’s 5 Step Guide to Writing a Character With X Disorder or X Disease. Other than that most guides are very specific about the learning disability (like this answered question/mini-guide about dyslexia). So, unless you’re looking for something specific, you’re a little out of luck.

Here’s some general information about learning disabilities that might be helpful, with a special thanks to the National Center for LD. \m/
