Veronica Mars, you did it again.

I finished The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line a few days ago. As expected, it was a really entertaining read—diehard Marshmallows and general mystery novel fans alike would enjoy this one. The book picks up where the movie left off and has Veronica dealing with keeping the family PI business solvent while her dad convalesces. Even though she has been working with her dad since she was a teenager, this is the first time it’s formalized and with that comes new accountability, not just in terms of the business but Veronica being forced to acknowledge she isn’t physically invincible.

The only two issues I had: 1. Not nearly CLOSE to enough Logan. Why, why, why? 2. You can tell that the authors are used to writing for TV, a lot of the description reads like script direction. Kill your adverbs!

Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Me: Did you hear Gabriel Garcia Marquez passed away?

Mom: Oh, really? I think the only thing I ever read by him was Life in the Time of Typhoid or whatever it was called.

Me: :x

 " But something about the static truth of numbers hurt my brain. Numbers felt sharp. Words felt elastic and springy. Language had an unpredictable, quicksilver quality, saying one thing but meaning something else, varying from place to place but maintaining (against all evidence) that it was the same language. Thinking about words was ticklish and amusing. It was also easy, as if they fit into slots and patterns prepared for them in my mind. Numbers on the other hand, bounced right out of my mind.

— Susanna Kaysen, Cambridge.
