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.

PM's Día de los Muertos Task 3


Día de los Muertos Task 3: Write an epitaph for the book you most disliked this year.


This was my first attempt at the American Horror Story for Halloween Bingo this year, and it was easily the most awful book I've laid eyes on in a while. While I do prefer my vampires to be of the non-sparkly variety, I did *not* need to be subjected to graphic decayed monster porn. Ewwwwwwwwww. 


I'm generally against burning or trashing books, but this one went straight into the recycling bin. I'd never give it away to a charitable organization.
