My morals have been thrown into question the past couple of months. I have a pretty good set of morals, or I like to think so. I don’t swear, I’m not a violent person and try to be as polite as Professor Layton expects me to be. And then there are morals that I don’t even think about, by are obviously there. Like how it’s wrong to kill people and blackmail. Well, I don’t know whats right and what’s wrong anymore and I blame Dexter and Chris Colfer.
So, my new years resolution is to read a book a week. 52 books in a year. I’ll give up in a couple of weeks but so far, I’m doing so good. I’ve finished my first book of the year already, Chris Colfer’s Struck by Lightning novel. I don’t know if the book was based on the film, (see this blog post, there is a film) or the other way around. And I haven’t even seen the film yet, but I will say the book’s great. I enjoyed it a lot more than his first novel.
It’s all about a guy who blackmails people at his high school to write for the school paper. And this is were my morals come into question. Is it really OK to be blackmailing people? Maybe. But then if we throw Dexter into the mix, I’m reading those books as well, and that’s about a guy who kills bad people. Is that right or wrong? I don’t even know anymore.
