"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 Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight - Jennifer E. Smith My first 3 star Contemporary-Romance…it pains me, cause this is my shit mayne, this is my drug.

I liked it, it was cute and had all the warm and fuzzy makings of a true 4-5star Contemporary but I didn’t like it. Could I be shallow enough to say that it was because of the premise? Divorce and Death are two sure fire ways to bring this girl down. Especially a jack-ass man abandoning his wife and daughter to start over new, just because he felt like he was finished. It made my stomach turn, that I’m supposed to be happy for him. That just because he did it out loud, I’m supposed to feel better for what he did, cause I don’t. He’s still a jack-ass and his new wife should know that she is replaceable, when he isn’t happy anymore; he will accept a different job in another county and move the fuck on.

***drops mic*** I’m now done ranting.

No 5 stars for you!
