Apparently we are getting a lot of spam... I apologize for not catching it.

In the meantime, if you get any spam, please let the mods know instead of deleting so we can report it. You can actually report it to us in this thread for now.

EDIT 1: As a temporary measure (I hope), I have set a recaptcha requirement for all non-members who post comments. I hate to do this because I realize recaptcha can be problematic for some people (myself included, honestly), but hopefully it'll be very temporary I tested this one and it didn't work, so instead, all non-member comments will be screened for now, as a temporary measure. Please let me know if this causes anyone major problems.

Because a) it's more convenient to post on one site than to post twice and b) because everyone's at the Dreamwidth now.


I've got a new post up. See ya there!

This book is actually one of the few books I was able to read in my school library. My library had a lot of Stacey books for some reason. I also made up a ranking of each babysitter last night, from kinda liked to most hated:

1. Abby (She's a BSC snarker too, and she hasn't drank the Kool-aid yet)
2. Claudia (Again, she used to be my comfort character)
3. Stacey (The number of Stacey books in the library helped this)
4. Mallory (I have a thing for characters who get dumped on)
5. Jessi (She was boring but at least she wasn't that annoying)
6. Kristy (She is the BSCult leader)
7. Mary Anne (“Sensitive” is just a synonym for passive-aggressive manipulative bitch)
8. Dawn (“Junk food is gross and California is so much  better—” I GET IT, DAWN)

Also, my uncle has diabetes, which will totally affect my judgement of Stacey's books. Let's move on to #3, The Truth About Stacey.

See ya later. Have the song I'm listening to, it's quite calming.

Alright! It's time for my second snark. As I've said in my previous post, I'll be doing the first ten books in order before going for what people voted for in my Dreamwidth post.

Claudia was my favorite when I was younger. I'm also an artist, and at the time I was slipping in my academics as well, so Claudia was a bit of a comfort character for me. I grew older and read more BSC books, I realized how much of a dumbshit Claudia is. You see, I started to identify with Janine more, as I'm good at Math and Science, I had to use the computer a lot for studies, and I'm a socially awkward bookworm loner with few friends too. After Claudia and Mean Janine, Claudia gradually shifted from my favorite to my least hated character.

Let's get on with #2, Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls.

I'll leave it off here. Thanks for reading my snarks!

I'm finishing this book today and feeling happy, so have my favorite Toby Fox song Moonsetter:
I've been trying to learn how to play that on the piano, but it's a bit too fast for my fingers. On with the snark!

That was fun! I did run a short poll on the Dreamwidth, but I've decided to do the first ten books in order then go do what everyone voted for later. So coming up next, #2 Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls!

I've been lurking around the archive for a while now and I decided, hey! Why not join the community?

Tell me how to edit these things, I'm not used to LJ's style yet.
So I made a post asking the members what should be snarked first (I only listed the books from my school library, but I found the Dropbox link to all the BSC books and thanks to road_baby's link I now have all of them!) and most of them asked for the first book, so here we are.
A lot of media that I've consumed such as Homestuck and Steven Universe fostered a love of little details and foreshadowing in me. Which BSC is bad at. I tend to notice when a detail given in the book is never mentioned again or disappears gradually over time. I also dislike exposition dumps.
Since this book is the first one, I don't expect it to be as crazy or stupid as the later books are, but it's the BSC. Anything can happen.
This is my first snark! Be kind.

I leave it off here, tell me what you thought of it!

BSC e-books [Jul. 31st, 2017|05:20 pm]

I live in the Philippines, so BSC books are hard to come by. My only source for them right now is my school library. Because of that, I can only have a book for a week, which is not a good thing when it comes to snarking. Does anyone have an e-book or a PDF you could send me?
