"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.

Frankenstein: Prodigal Son

Anathema - K.A. Tucker I don’t know if I like this protagonist, Evangeline, there is just something about her and I can’t place my finger on it. The only reason I entertained the thought of reading this series is because K.A. Tucker has impressed me with her other works. But Evie is naïve; she believes everything she hears without second thought, even when it burned her the last time. She claims that she is super perceptive, but she isn’t, she gets blind sighted so many times, I’m surprised she hasn’t made an appointment with an optometrist…cause she should really get that checked out.

However, there are a few things I did enjoy about this version of vampires; I like how there are two parallel worlds, one without humans and the other with humans but the vamps are unable to turn humans into vamps because they no longer have venom. I like that there is a witch-vamp, it adds dimension.

I think it’s worth continuing even though this one isn’t a strong start; I’ve been pleasantly surprised in the past.
