Just In Time With Chrismukkah: Haiku Reviews

I haven’t poetically opined on my reading lately, so I figured just in time for the Chrismukkah shopping season I’d give you a few fresh haiku reviews. Now, just to warn you, a few of these are from my summer reading and thus include a lot of blood sucking and child murderers. (What? Isn’t that what you read on the beach?)



My Chrismukkah Haiku Reviews

VAMPIRE DIARIES, THE AWAKENING, L.J. Smith
Wow, lots of scifi
Takes cheesy to new level
Show is way better

THE SOOKIE STACKHOUSE NOVELS (TRUE BLOOD), DEAD UNTIL DARK, Charlaine Harris

Actually, quite good
HBO did the books proud
Best vampire concept

CATCHING FIRE (Final book in HUNGER GAMES Trilogy), Suzanne Collins

Bit too much romance
Still, good action and great deaths
Sad to see it go

EMMA, Jane Austen

Bored girl sets up friends
Match-making at its finest
Kept thinking CLUELESS

FIREFLY LANE, Kristin Hannah
Best friends forever
Like a new spin on BEACHES
Pass me the tissues

POP CULTURE RANT: General Hospital
Okay, exactly how long are they going to drag out this Balkan storyline? I know soaps are known for not wrapping things up too quickly, but this is getting ridiculous. And while I was psyched for the return of Brenda (notice the ‘was’ there), does every plotline need to revolve around this woman? Excuse me, revolve around her and Dante. Seriously, I think the only storyline they’re not involved in is Crazy Lisa’s Fatal Attraction remake (and don’t get me started on how that didn’t end with her Shady Brook hospitalization). Really, GH has some good plot ideas (I liked the Fatal Attraction thing when it started), they just seem incapable of knowing when to call it quits. It’s like they need a good editor or something.
