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.

Slide - Jill Hathaway Predictable.

However, two stars. I like the creative path Hathaway took with the narcolepsy and the well written predictability. I didn't connect with any of the characters...I knew everyone's secrets well before the author did. Yes, I knew allthesecrets before the author put pencil to paper, I knew exactly what was happening and when...uh huh, yep, that's right. I knew!

The characters? *shrug* Eh, didn't hate them, didn't love them, dont even remember their names.

The protagonist? *shrug* Eh, didn't hate her, didn't love her, she kind of just existed in her own little selfish, "no matter what you have going on and even though you told me that you are in fact going through some shit, my shit is more important" little bubble of predictability.
