    Review of Diary of a Mad Fat Girl

    At first I was reluctant to read Diary of a Mad Fat Girl. I’m a visual person and the cover did not scream anger or quite honestly a fat girl. There was a disconnect and I was worried about the quality of the story. But I found when I started to read Diary of a Mad Fat Girl, a novel by Stephanie McAfee I couldn’t put it down.

The book covers topics that our generation are very familiar with in a combination of both humor and seriousness. Ace lost both her parents and has a horrible boss and on top of all that, her best friend flaked on her for a Spring Break trip. Through Ace’s humor we weave through all the characters hardships

    Review – Final Fantasy XIII-2

    Rating: T (Teen: Mild Language, Violence, Simulated Gambling, Mild Suggestive Themes, Drug Reference) Genre: JRPG Publisher: Square Enix Developer: Square Enix Release Date: January 31, 2012 RENT With Final Fantasy XIII, people either loved it or hated it. It was incredibly rare to find someone who fell in the middle. Final Fantasy XIII-2 attempted to “fix” the reasons why people hated the first game, while at the same time, found other reasons to make those who loved the first game dislike pieces of this one. Don’t get me wrong; there are lots of things to love about the sequel, and there are numerous improvements to gameplay over the first game. Unfortunately, the main story is not one of these things. Let’s just get this out of the way: the story is awful. For starters, I couldn’t stop seeing the similarities between this and Final Fantasy X. Tidus was sent to future to save the past.
