Plagiarized!

My review of Gone Girl, written and posted both on Goodreads AND my blog in February 2013, has been stolen and reproduced, almost entirely, here: https://optates.wordpress.com/2014/10/22/book-review-2/

Shameful that someone needs to steal someone else's words. Mine must be super special that she'd steal them and claim them as her own.

The fact that she begins her "review" with this quote is just mind-boggling to me:

“My mother had always told her kids: if you’re about to do something, and you want to know if it’s a bad idea, imagine seeing it printed in the paper for all the world to see.”

Well there you go, person who stole my shit. Now your thievery is out there for the whole world to see.
