Two-faced Nitpicker

I'm here just to scope this place out as an alternative to goodreads and as a little bookbank in case I ever bank out of goodreads. (And did I also mention goodreads?)


About me: I'm a pretty lazy reviewer but big on reading so don't expect much reviewing but when reviews come, do beware of endless rambling about everything, including things unimportant like digressing on other unrelated books.


"Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you"

Goliath - Scott Westerfeld, Keith Thompson Oh my.
Apart from the fact that Alek and Deryn have suddenly taken on more angsty roles (which is fun. I do love predicting their pitfalls and delicious angsty momentous moments) the book was yet again, FLAWLESS mostly because my darling Count Volger was inside *fangirls* and he had 189 appearances. 189. *hyperventilates*
What would I give to be Dr. Barlow.

I thus declare that there is nothing more perfect than the ever enchanting Count. Volger.
What makes Count Volger Better than better:
- He speaks English and German
- His Moustache
- His wonderful military outfit (There is nothing better than a guy in a military suit.)
- His Moustache
- Those sigh-worthy eyebrows (Could you just see him raising his right eyebrow imperiously? *swoons*)
- His Moustache
- He is a not just a Count, but a wildcount. (my my Mr. Volger, I do like some wildness in my men)
- He is Austrian-Hungarian. (Which automatically makes him hotter because of the double-barrel)
- He has villianistic tendencies (He can twirl his moustache evilly anytime!)
- His awkwardly cute reaction to messenger lizards
- His Moustache

And the list is never endless
I mean, the guy has a moustache! That alone, justifies his greatness.
