"I’m always amazed at friends who say they try to read at night in bed but always end up falling asleep. I have the opposite problem. If a book is good I can’t go to sleep, and stay up way past my bedtime, hooked on the writing. Is anything better than waking up after a late-night read and diving right back into the plot before you even get out of bed to brush your teeth?" -John Walters 

LOVE reading. Although, I didn't actually start readingreading until July of 2012 when I got my Nook, the love of my life.

Abbreviations I use in my reviews:

WTS (Wrist Twitch Syndrome) - The compulsory jerking of the wrist in an effort to pitch the nook away from the body to reduce mental anguish and self inflicted bodily harm. 

ERS (Eye Roll Syndrome)The act of rolling one’s eyes multiple times in a matter of mere minutes.

The severity of this syndrome tend to vary from benign eye rolls every now and then, depending on the situation and protagonist, to intense eye rolls, of which, cause the body to seize up for minutes at a time.

**Both symptoms tend to manifest as a result of naive, stupid, clueless, lovesick, rose-glasses wearing puddle-depth fucktard protagonists or an ag-on-izing storyline.

Blood Rites (The Grey Wolves, #2)

Blood Rites (The Grey Wolves, #2) - Quinn Loftis Damn it! She’s got me. She’s got me!

This series is seriously growing on me! I stayed up reading this to the end; I just couldn’t go to sleep without knowing what happened. This book was what I needed, it had action, deceit, kidnapping, anguish, blood, fur, anger…then love and romance but just enough of both that your gag reflexes weren’t kicking in and you could actually enjoy the peace.

Where the characters were forgettable for me in the first book, they have grown on me in the second. Maybe it was because they were finally able to get serious and not mask every little thing with sarcasm and jokes because there is a place and time for all of that and sometimes the situation is dire and the weight of the situation should weigh heavy on the shoulders of loved ones and not made light of every. single. second. of. the. day. It just isn’t necessary.

Jen and Sally have grown a little bit in this book and I like how much strong their friendships are with each other, yes they were this close in the first book but it was overshadowed by their juvenile personalities that didn’t know when to quit. But now I can like them.

Oh and the wolves, I just love all of them! Vasil and Alina are really great leaders, I like how they are serious when they need to be but also have a sense of humor, and allow the girls to be girls.

There are quite a few LOL moments in this read, so I will say that it is worth it to endure the physical pain of the first book to get to this little gem.
…and don’t get me started on Jen and Decebel!! OMG! I’m fan-girling!! I can’t wait to dig in to the third installment!
