"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.

The Hunt - Andrew Fukuda Eh…and the worst part about it is that I was looking forward to reading this. I kept putting it aside for when I felt like needed that little boost of awesomeness and it fell short…oh so short. What I couldn’t get over is that Gene could assimilate and keep up this façade with the vamps and then when it came time to fight or flight…he actually didn’t do either, he instantaneously gave up, laid down and accepted his fate! It was like Really? All it took was for them to catch you and you couldn’t even make a run for it? Then you had your girlfriend make the decision for you and you had the audacity to stand there for another 5 minutes staring at the screen she was once on, even though you could hear the vamps coming back for you? Damn it, I was annoyed. Gene is a selfish bastard and he was willing to risk everyone’s life for…what? Not even for himself! Fight Gene, damn!

I may be a little upset with Gene but I have high hopes for Sissy! At least she has some sense.
