TTT: Funny Book Titles

This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is one of those ones that sound fun and easy, but then you actually get down to writing the post, and it’s surprisingly difficult!

#marywrites: Introspection

Turnabout is fair play, right? Recently, I was reading for my CP, and I was starting to sound like a really annoying broken record that you kind of want to throw out the window. “Introspection!” I kept yelling, “We need more introspection!” The character wasn’t meant to be liked, but I also didn’t care about…
