Literary Beauty

"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.

Currently reading

Frankenstein: Prodigal Son
Scott Brick, Kevin J. Anderson, Dean Koontz
Nobody - Jennifer Lynn Barnes Hmmm, this was a decent read but it just didn’t make the cut.

What really got me...perturbed me...bunched my knickers to an intractable knot at my backside that was low enough to cause friction and discomfort while sitting, was that these two individuals were only 15 years old. So how in the wholly hell are they even somewhat capable of raising two children?! And don’t feed me that bull about them being his siblings, cause that's some bullshit and Ima call you on it. They are effing 15! He didn’t have parents and hers neglected her for the entirety of her existence! But they lived happily ever after? Huh? What?…Well, I guess if you can just steal shit for a living, it reduces a lot of the financial stress associated with raising children…

This book would not exceed 3 stars. Couldn’t. Wouldn’t. Can’t.

Yes, there was insta-love. I’m just going to come out and say it, but Nix and Claire were cute. I kinda, sorta liked the premise. I don’t really like the thought of people being born to be essentially forgotten. It just rubbed me the wrong way that parents could forget a child in various places, to have to put a sticky note on the back window of their car just to remember she existed. That part made me sad.

But their journey was cute, them finding each other and being able to see each other, it was great. Their insta-love was cutesy too…gave me the warm and fuzzies and all that jazz.

Not too shabby, I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone I know but it was entertaining.
