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
The Messenger - Markus Zusak OMG. Best. Story. Ever.

...Now that I’ve had time to digest everything that happened in this story, I will stick with my immediate reaction, to a certain extent. I think for this genre, this is the best one I've read so far and that's mostly because, I'm not sure what to call this genre. Contemporary? shrug Eh, Ok.

I laughed out loud A LOT during this read because even when things weren’t looking to good, he still had a sense of humor. I enjoyed reading about how Ed learned through his experiences and came out a better person at the end, not to say that we wasn’t a good person to begin with, but you know a better person!

I have a tendency to spoil the hell out of a book when I like it so much, so I’ll stop here. When going through the reviews for this book, there were many reviewers that mentioned how afraid they were to read this because [b:The Book Thief|19063|The Book Thief|Markus Zusak|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1352395325s/19063.jpg|878368] was so great…

I guess I know what I'm reading next.
