4 times all of them.

 

Four times for the first four (with once aloud to my children in a British accent).  Twice for five and six and once for seven.  I have untold hours of fanfiction under my belt and three stories of my own posted. 

 

Yeah, Harry Potter fan, too.

 

 

I read the first one and gave up.

 

It was not bad, it was extremely derivative, like the bastard love child of Roald Dahl and Enid Blyton and not nearly as entertaining as Jill Murphy' s Worst Witch books which have an almost identical premise but less pompus self importance.

 

I am an admirer of J.K.Rowling's talent which I would not inlcude writing close to the top but if you want someone versed in self promotion she is your lady.

 

Mrs B read the second one but it did not invite her to read any of the subsequent ones.

 

However I did find something that made me more sympathetic towards Ms R and that was when I picked up a copy of Twilight in a book shop and read a couple of pages.......

 

I am going to stop now or this will have to go in Morbidkid's ranting thread.

I read the first one too and while it was decent enough it didn't make me want to read anymore, but all the time I was reading it I kept thinking "well this is basically just the Worst Witch isn't it?"

Didn't know where to post this it doesn't really fit into the main Somewhere Over The Rainbow thread so it will put it here.

 

Tom Daley has announced his engagment to a man 20 years his senior. Cue everyone saying it is lovely to ensure people know how PC they are.

 

However am I the only one to be a little disquieted by this. Tom is very young and it was clear from all that has been written that he was very close to his father who then died during his teenage years. This would be traumatic for any teenager but Tom also has the added pressure of being an elite sportsman in the public eye. Now a few years later Tom turns up in a relationship with a man who is old enough to be his father.

 

I am not alleging anything illegal or doubting the veracity of the relationship but just putting it out there that Tom could have been in a very vulnerable place and reached out to an older man possible to take the place of his father in his life rather than coming to the relationship from a direct sexual attraction.

 

or am I overthinking this?

Unless, that's your blog, you're not the only one:

http://soletstalkabo...e-so-strange-to

 

This relationship is curiously in between an 'ordinary' relationship and the trophy hunter/gold digger couple. I give them 5 years max. By then, Tom will have matured some more and will be getting too difficult for Dustin.

 

 

No that is not my blog. The writer reaches the same conclusion that I do but from a different route he appears to be a bit of a fantasist wanting everyone (who is good looking) to be gay. I have seen no evidence that any member of 1D shows any suggestion of being gay (although I have nagging doubts about Niall Horan.
