"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.

Enclave - Ann Aguirre Now this is what I'm talking about! Give me a bad-ass female any day of the damn week! A fitting name for this Huntress, Deuce, she knew what she wanted to be from the very beginning and she is awesome at it.

What I liked most about this story was that the line between what women and men were capable of didn't exist, they were appointed to what was best for the enclave as a whole, there were some power issues but when isn't there? It's bound to happen when a bunch of people come together, at some point there will always be someone who thinks they are God. But all in all, I think that that compound did a good job at making sure their people survived and were taken cared of.

Deuce was born in an enclave called College, this enclave is established underground int he old subways systems in New York. Mankind messed with some shit and screwed a whole lot of people over by releasing a virus that takes out New York. The enclave College has been around quite awhile after some survivors sought shelter underground and away from the virus. However as a result of being underground the inhabitants do not live for long and I'm sure it has something to do with the lack of sunlight. Anyway, they only live until their late 20's and that's of they don't get eaten by the freaks that cohabit the tunnels. There are three main occupations of the inhabitants of College and they are; The Hunters, The Breeders, and the Builders (I wouldn't mind being appointed to the Breeders myself, just sayin').

On the 15th year of their life they have a Naming Day and depending on which occupation was chosen for you, you get cuts on your arms and there are object placed at your feet, and whichever the single drop of blood lands on, that's your name. I thought it was pretty damn clever.

Then she meets Fade, oh Fade*swoon* Who is probably the best partner a girl could have and it's more or less and instant trust between them. Then some shit happens (you'll have to read for that) and they have to go topside...but I dont want to give away too much. But it's a pretty action packed journey and well worth the read!
