Portable Mistletoe

Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Ode to a Mawkish Teenage Love Story

Your dystopian premise is more than stupid

Internal logic is poorly executed

Your use of first-person-present-tense

Ought to be a capital offense


You’ve forever ruined YA

With chapters of dreadful cliché

Your plot’s full of holes like a sieve

Both heroes TSTL


But when the final romantic bliss

They sealed with a vomity kiss

Alas, it made my own bile resurgent

Misery, thy name is Divergent
