So Bad, I Read It For You.
(It’s a clumsy acronym, but whatever.)
These “reviews” are for when you want to know what happens, but you know the book’s a mess.
E.g., Dan Brown’s Inferno. I knew Brown was sliding downhill when The Lost Symbol turned into a parody of his earlier stuff, but he put Dante on the cover so I had to know what happened. It was bad, so bad. How could I not try to save others this experience?
These spoiler-laden reviews are sarcastic. They’re meant to be the funny-ha-ha sort of sarcastic. (I clarify this for the people who find sarcasm fundamentally cruel.) For this reason, the SBIRIFY category will be populated by big, blockbuster books/authors: Dan Brown, Stephenie Meyer, Nicholas Sparks… they’re rolling in mad $$$$$ with millions of copies sold. I don’t want to make a punching bag from a self-publisher’s first attempt.
If there’s a book you’d like to see here: feel free to make a request. ^_^
Inferno — Dan Brown
The Twilight Saga
Twilight — Stephenie Meyer
New Moon — Stephenie Meyer
Eclipse — Stephenie Meyer
Breaking Dawn — Stephenie Meyer

Unfortunately I read Inferno for myself. I wish you had fallen on that sword for me. Keep fighting the good fight.
I’m so sorry! If you haven’t yet read Brown’s The Lost Symbol, don’t. It may appear here in a couple weeks…
Thanks for stopping by!
I read that one too, will I never learn? While I have blocked out most of my memory of that story I remember there was a “big reveal” about a dual identity of a character that I honestly thought had been common knowledge for a hundred pages or more. Just terrible (although I thought some of the DC history was kinda cool… I will never learn).
Lol. Am in the same boat—I’ve read it, but remember very little. I found a copy for six cents and have learned that reading a book with an eye to a SBIRIFY post makes it more entertaining. (Except for Twilight Book 4. Am still trying to get through… it hurts.)
