sherlockian: (good novel/bad novel)
( May. 21st, 2010 02:41 pm)
I can't quite figure out why I dislike Holly Black's writing so much. I mean, the Modern Fairy Tale series just read as really LOL edgy to me. Very "I'm trying to be darkity darkity dark and rebellious"-- which I didn't even like much when I was a teenager.

Now I'm trying "White Cat", which should be totally my speed. It's about the con-artist youngest son of a magical mafia family who is the only member of the family to have no magical talents. It's tailor-made to hit my narrative kinks. But I'm thirty pages in and all I want is to smack him for being a whiny, self-absorbed idiot.
