The Suck Fairy might have visited me.
What's a visit from the Suck Fairy? It's when you watch/read something, love it, and then later watch it again/reread it, and it's not nearly as good.
Now, I'm sure I'm feeling biased by the recent events with Lang Leav's attempts to goad people into liking a positive review on GoodReads, but after looking over her poems, I'm confused as to why I adored them in the first place. They're childish, silly, and navel-gazing. So why?
When I saw her book, I was in Barnes and Noble with my husband, and we were enjoying a day together in Asheville. I was full of love and squee, so I guess I was associating that book with that day and etc.
Because really, those poems are not the best thing ever. But was it something else, like the association I was feeling when I read these poems and thought of my husband? Like an association fairy...or a Leech Fairy?
Suck Fairy, or Leech Fairy? You decide.
