one of my favorite things about these books is that any and all pop culture references are concentrated to music artists of the late 90s - early 00s, who are then used as a device to bash grovers taste in music

one of my other favorite things about these books is the fact that i am reading them later in life than i should have (according to what im guessing is the actual target age demographic, also based on the time periods when aforementioned music artists were most popular), which has the pleasant side effect of being a particularly amusing nostalgia rush even though ive never read these books before
