"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.

Legend - Marie Lu I really loved this read! In my opinion, it's one of the better dystopia's I've read thus far.

My spider senses were tingling in the first couple of chapter’s because sometimes when there is specific information provided, you just kind of know (call it intuition) it’s significance to the rest of the story. So I just had to sit back and wait for it to come to fruition, but it was entertaining getting there!

Day is genius. I will admit that I love reading about characters who can take care of themselves, even if they don’t have an option, while still holding on to a piece of humanity cause what I will tell you is that kid was dealt a shitty hand but he was able to use it to his advantage. He also still managed to be a good person who has the capacity for empathy and sympathy and most importantly he didn't walk around with this huge chip on his shoulder, being a total cock to everyone that walked in his path. And I appreciated that, even when he had every right to.

Then there's June, who is a goddamned badass. This girl is everything I ever wanted in a protagonist, she is independent and smart and she actually has the capacity to think and feel at the same time! What?! I know right? Who does that? Oh but I assure you, it is true and I love her for that. She, like Day, is damn genius. I loved how their minds worked, how they could stand in front of a wall and come up with five different ways around it within a matter of minutes. What impressed me most was that she was smart enough to know when something didn’t add up and she didn't get all love struck and act a damn fool and become distracted from her goal, which is always refreshing.

I was engaged from page one and the action, humor and characters kept my attention throughout. I am looking forward to reading the sequel because there are some questions I'm hoping will be answered.
