Did your dog eat your Hunger Games Cliffsnotes?  Did you forget your 50 Shades of Grey SparkNotes?  Here’re 10 books in 140 characters or less!

1.  The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

comediva chronicles of narnia book week

SPOILER ALERT:  Nothing to do with gay agenda, despite sassy queen / lots of going-in and coming-out of closets.  🙁

2.  Jane Eyre

Jane is all like, “You married?” and Mr. Rochester is like, “Bitch, I might be.” **  He is.  To a madwoman.

** Actual Victorian commentary may vary.

3.  Little Women

Stopped reading once I realized Laurie was a boy.  It was like re-living Anne and Ellen all over again.

4.  To Kill a Mockingbird

Not a how-to guide, like the title suggests.

5.  50 Shades of Grey

50 shaes of grey comediva book week

No.

6.  Twilight

Edward totes wants to eat Bella.  She’s not worried because, you guys, he’s super cute and sparkly.  But Jacob, ugh.

7.  The Notebook

Noah reads love story to his Alzheimer’s-stricken wife everyday.  (Gina cries in fetal position because of all the feelings.)

8.  Frankenstein

comediva frankenstein book week

Frankenstein is the scientist, not the monster.  The monster is classy; like uses-Grey-Poupon-instead-of-regular-mustard classy.

9.  Gone With the Wind

Fun drinking game!  Take a shot every time you think, “My dear, I don’t give a damn” to something Scarlett says. **

**  Things I didn’t give a damn about in that last one:  Word count.

10.  The Hunger Games

Think The Notebook, but with lots of death and violence.

Hi, I’m Gina Scott! I am a North Carolina native, but have recently been transplanted to Los Angeles to intern for the amazing Comediva. I still have all of my Spice Girl dolls in their boxes and Geri’s leaving will always be a sensitive subject. I love French fries and Tom Cruise but not necessarily in that order, and I base all my relationships in life on the other person’s knowledge of FRIENDS episodes. Follow me on the twitter dot com: @the_apologetic (disclaimer: this is my second twitter account. The first was deactivated promptly after the Backstreet Boys followed me because, really, where was I going to go from there?) Read more from me at: isthisthereallifeee.tumblr.com
