why the crap??? [Jul. 8th, 2008|07:25 pm]

I can't believe someone actually licensed, translated, edited, and published anything by Barbara Katagiri. She has to be one of the worst writers ever, and that's saying a lot considering the low quality of writers in BL. While wandering the internet, I stumbled upon Sleeping with Money (called Satsutaba no bed de nemure in Japanese) and was horrified. The premise, sadly, sounds pretty interesting. Too bad the author is her. Has anyone read this?

I just ordered the English translation... I take it I am in for some quality snark-and-cringe time, am I?

Another one to read between laundry and dish washing ¬_¬

Who knows, it might actually be good...I've read at least five books by her and they've all sucked pretty hard, though. Let me know what you think when you read it!

*sighs* I am so not surprised that it's not very good, but still somewhat disappointed. I won't bother with this one, then.
