How to Judge a Book by its CoverWhen it comes to the "literature" from the Young Adult section at the library, I think it's gotten to the point that you can indeed judge a book by its cover.How to Judge a Book by its Cover1 year ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Just because something is a book, does not mean that it doesn't make you stupid. Sometimes books can be brain-rotting, even more so than a good old, wholesome cartoon, if I may be so bold.
Today I will show you a guide about how to judge a book by its cover; that way you can conveniently know what books to avoid and which you decide are tolerable.
WARNING!!!!!!!! DO NOT CONFUSE THESE FOR GOOD BOOKS THAT HAVE SOME OF THE SAME TRAITS.

I'll stop being all poetic. Rant time!
Cliche #1: The henshins. Not to be confused with hentai. Hecks, no. *shiver* Henshins are those sparkly transformations, where the heroine thrusts some trinket in the air, yells something she thinks is profound, and twirls around in a flurry of sparkles as the magic strips her nekked and then her clothes materialize on her body, one piece at a time. That's not ceepy. At all. Especially since a lot of shoujo is animated by grown men. */endsarcasm* Another annoying thing about these things is the fact that they take for freaking EVER. Especially group transformations.

Ever since I was a baby, I would stare, captivated, at the figurine for hours. In fact, it was the only reason I liked visiting my grandparents' house. The house somehow managed to be drafty and stuffy all at once, like an old attic clogged with cobwebs and ancient dust. My grandmother always kept the blinds drawn, explaining that light would fade the upholstery on her couch. But with the layers of dust, you could hardly make out the green and gold curls and spirals haphazardly stitched into the mud red background.The Glass Unicorn, Intro.4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

But she always chose the right window, the one that cast the prisms from
