AND SHE STOPPED. And then tried again. AND STOPPED AGAIN. And you get the picture.
Ultimately, the question remains....WHAT I'M I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH HER? HOW DO I HANDLE THIS SITUATION? I CAN'T FLAIL OVER THE EPIC-NESS OF ACOTAR WITH MY CO-BLOGGER AND IT'S BREAKING MY HEART!
So, I came up with a few ways to solve this conundrum....
(Hopefully everyone realizes that I'm totally being sarcastic and ridiculous about this, and in no way, being serious. No Andye's were harmed in the writing of this post!)
1. Hit them upside the head with said book.
In this specific case of love and hate, hitting them upside the head with ACOTAR might hurt a bit, because it's a prettttyyyy thick book. But maybe this would slap some darn sense into them! :P
2. Force them to read it AGAIN.
Less forceful. Maybe not as effective. In the hitting case, it might cause a concussion and lead them to forget their dislike of said book. Voila! They have brain damage and instantly love the book. Problem solved. Maybe I should just stop listing solutions, because I think number one is a solid choice, at the moment.
3. Read it to them.
I have a cute voice, and I think my impersonations of other people are friggin hilarious. I think I could make someone love ANY book just by reading it to them. Also less forceful than number 1, but more tiring on my part. OH WELLS WHATEVER IT TAKES.
4. Make them pet all the pages.
I'm not sure how this one would work, but hey, it sounds good. Maybe she will think it's soft like a puppy and end up loving it just as much as I did? Yeah, I'm still sticking with option Number 1. SORRY ANDYE! You know I love you, right?
5. Kidnap them.
I'm starting to sound so vicious. I'm really a sweet person, okay?! But for reals, I could see someone starting to love a certain book if I kidnapped them, didn't feed them, and didn't let them sleep. They would be delirious and tired and if they are anything like me, HANGRY. All the while, said book would be playing in the background on audible or I could combine option #3, and BOOM! Insta-love. Simple, really.
6. Put a spell on them.
Can't be that hard, right?
7. Hypnotize them.
Okay, I'm done. This is the option. I know people. I work in the entertainment business. (Whoa, that sounds.....wrong. I meant, I work with people that put on parties/entertainment. Wait, still wrong. Parties/entertainment for kids. MOON BOUNCES/MAGICIANS/FACE PAINTERS, GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE GUTTER!) I can easily get a hypnotist to hypnotize Andye into thinking that ACOTAR is the best book ever (because, HELLO, it is!), and also make her do all kinds of funny things. Win, win! Don't worry, I'll be sure to record it and share it with ya'll too, because that's what friends are for?
If all else fails, you can always do what we're ACTUALLY doing regarding THE BEST FLIPPIN BOOK IN THE ENTIRE GALAXY, and just not speak of it. (While I'm secretly still planning the hypnotism, because that's a dang good idea!) Really though, not all books are for everyone, and yeah, it sucks that we can't flail together over Tamlin, Feyre, Lucien, Rhys, and ALL THE THINGS ACOTAR, but that's what makes us amazing co-bloggers. We have differing tastes, and that makes our posts to all of you more interesting and diverse! I mean, could you imagine if we all loved every single book ever written? It might be cool in the flailing department, but then, reading wouldn't be such a fabulous adventure for each of us, and I don't think there would be much to flail about either!
Remember, no co-bloggers were harmed in the making of this post! We hugged it out, and I cried myself to sleep when I found out about it, but really, we're cool. :)
