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.

Caged Moon - Rachel Deagan I didn't love it. I didn't hate it.

It's actually been a couple of weeks since I've read this and apparently it didn't leave a lasting impression. I was going through some of the other reviews to jog my memory about this book and now I remember!

I liked Charlotte enough, she was a bit naive but likeable nonetheless. Actually no, in hindsight her naivety was very annoying, this girl questioned EVERYTHING to death!

Did his eye's change color? I think his eyes changed color, but this time he was inside of the cafeteria not in the forest and there wasn’t a moon in sight...so am I imagining it? And his friend's eye's looked like they changed color too? I think I saw them change? No, they couldn’t have, I must be losing it. But I coulda swore...

Sometimes Charlotte, a shoe is a shoe and green eyes change to amber. Sorry babe, but that's life.

Then there was the you can control all of us with your mind aspect, which isn’t a bad thing but given to an girl that doesn't act is like having the superpower of being able to grow fingernails at lightning speed...why? One memory worthy moment of this book that really got my knickers in a snit was when the love of her life was getting like really jacked up and she stood there thinking Oh dear, Liam just got blasted through that tree...gosh this is just so damn painful to watch...ouch! I’m sure that size 12 to the dome was pretty painful! Is that blood I see coming out of his right eyeball? His ear is bleeding! OMG! He is barely moving after getting clotheslined into.the.ground...violence makes me cringe...ok NOW this needs to stop!" WHAT? Really? Cause Char Char you could have stopped it way before his ass was cashing checks. AND This happened AFTER she was aware of her “gift”.

The story in itself was pretty decent though, I liked the supporting characters. However as soon as I typed that, my nose scrunched up when I thought about her friend and that whole DRAMABOMB with the enemy werewolf. Hmmm. I know I liked this read, there are some positive points, there has to be, I know there are cause I made a mental note that I would read the second installment...but to place my finger on it...

Yes! It was about werewolves! Also, I didn’t hate Charlotte; I just disliked her and at times immensely.

That is all.
