A viral Kindle Dragon's Oath First, let me say that I hate the House of Night series. So, if you look at it that way, a 2 star rating really isn't that bad. Still. It wasn't good.For those of you who have read the HON books, this is Dragon and Anastasia's story. For those of you who haven't read the series...lucky you.It's got all of the usual House of Night mumbo-jumbo in it. It reads like a wiccan coca-cola commercial. If the whole world could just get together and hold hands, then everything will be ok! Whatever.I know what you're thinking. Why the #*@! did you read the book if you hate House of Night? Ok. There's a perfectly rational explanation for this.I recently moved, so I'm just now getting to know my neighbors. I finally met a really nice lady (who just happens to have kids the same age as mine! Score!), and she noticed that I was reading some book in a paranormal series. She told me she loves those kinds of books, too. Bonus! Then she told me that she loved the House of Night series. *balloon deflates* Hey, nobody's perfect, right? Anyway, she sort of assumed that I liked the series, because I admitted that I had read the books. I may have neglected to mention that I would rather eat hot coals than read another one. Sooooo. I did a nice thing for once in my life, and told her that there was new House of Night novella that just came out. I should have remembered that no good deed goes unpunished. She bought it. She loved it. She gave it to me to read next...'cause she's nice. Dammit!As I saw it I only had three choices.1)Fess up. Which would mean essentially telling her that she has horrible taste in books.2)Lie. Wait a week or so. Give the book back. Pretend that I had read it. And then pray to God that she didn't ask me any questions.3)Suck it up. At least it was only a novella, right?So I decided to just suck it up. Did I mention that our kids are the same age?Now I only have to worry that she'll buy the next House of Night book when it comes out. Did I mention that she's super-duper nice? Oh God...I feel sick. See, kids? This is how a lie can snowball on you.
