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
Room - Emma Donoghue Hmmm, I liked it…Although, this isn’t one of those reads that rips your heart out and at the end of it, you kind of wished it continued because you were quite ready to let the characters go.

The point of view of a five year old is…interesting to say the least. It took a little getting used to Jack and the way he speaks, I had a hard time following it for the first couple of chapters although I enjoyed reading it through his perspective, how and what he felt and thought while in Room and how he matured and developed once he was on the Outside.

I appreciated that his mother made sure to educate him while they were held captive, even without the possibility of freedom, she made sure to take time out of her day, every day to make sure he learned things and she provided him the best environment she possibly could. She made sure he brushed his teeth and ate as well of a well-rounded diet she could muster up and it’s admirable. When she approached that proverbial fork in the road, she chose well.

When I closed the book, it felt complete and I honestly really can’t pinpoint where my dislike sits, but I just kind of felt like Eh…

Didn’t love it, didn’t hate it.
