The Laziness Cycle™ (WISvsWIF edition)

Hello guys!

OK, let’s start off by being honest here. In the past 24 hours, how lazy do you think you have been? 100% being extremely lazy and 0% being extremely hardworking. Think about this. If you want, you can scroll down to the comments and put down your answer without looking. 

And without further ado, I present to you The Laziness Cycle™.

1. When you realize that you’ve been watching Netflix for 3+ hours

What I say: Oh come on, I’ve only been watching for 45 minutes, more or less!

What I feel deeeep down: You need to get off the couch and live your life. There is more to this world than salty dried up popcorn and cringing at Netflix teen dramas.

2. When you go outside but then feel like a vampire

I couldn’t really find a ‘Vampire screaming in pain when outside’ GIF so I chose this bee. (It’s pretty legit, as you can see)

What I say: What a beautiful day!

What I feel deeeep down: MY INNER SOUL IS BURNING FROM THE HEAT OF THE ETERNAL FIRE OF THE SUN. I HAVE BEEN INSIDE FAR TOO LONG. NOOOOOOO!

3. When you finally come to your senses and be productive

5. And head straight back to the couch

What I say: I’ve worked hard! I deserve it!

Leave now.

This is a secret story about a dangerous secret that I must not reveal. Good. You’re curious. You’re brave. If you join this adventure, I will introduce you to some of the events and people in this perilous book. It is an alarming account of two extraordinary adventurers, a missing magician’s diary, a symphony of smells, and a deadly secret…

But be careful – our enemies are watching. And tell no one…because the name of this book is secret.

ExpectationsI was a huge fan of this series and read the all of the books when I was in the third grade, so I thought that at least the first one deserved a re-read. I was excited to for a re-read, and I wasn’t disappointed!

Blog Arrow Gold

LikesThe book had a mysterious vibe that couldn’t be topped. The writing style was excellent, and the author is great at getting the reader hooked. I also enjoyed solving riddles and deciphering codes alongside Cass and Max-Ernest. It kept me engaged in the story and plot. (Which were also very good)

The villains were excellent! Dr. L and Ms. Mavius *sorry I don’t know how to spell her name* were perfect antagonists. Plus, Dr. L’s back story was executed perfectly. Come to think of it, there wasn’t a single character that I didn’t like/didn’t fit well into the story.

Bosch had a signature dark humor that spiced things up, similar to that of Trenton Lee Stewart and Lemony Snicket. He also made useful side notations a which added to the dynamics of his writing style to evaluate on the unique things that were happening in the story, which came in handy.

Blog Arrow Gold

DislikesThe only problem I had with this story was how the ending was a little abrupt. It didn’t seem to fully wrap up the story the way I was expecting.*

*This is in a series, which also happens to be very secret, so it may purposely leave on a cliffhanger

Blog Arrow Gold

Final ThoughtsAll in all, The Name of This Book is Secret is a must read, especially for anyone who is into mystery books. There was only one minor problem, but it was easily outruled by all of the redeemable qualities which the book possesses. I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed if you pick this book up.
