Life & Death Chapter 14
Given the prevalence in the series, I still have to ask why Bella/Beau is too stupid to ask about the sparkling. I’ve already complained about how obnoxious it is that Ed seemed to think it was scary. I cannot imagine … Continue reading

Inheritance Chapter 56
A couple of quick gripes about the last chapter before we move on. First, does Chris think about the impact of anything he writes or just he just puke at the keyboard and go with whatever happens? I don’t expect … Continue reading
