"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.

Girl in the Arena - Lise Haines Why was this book written? I mean damnit it started off with such great intentions...then what hell happened? I was thinking "hell yeah, give me a bad-ass chick in an arena, kicking ass and taking names!", I'm thinking Russell Crowe's Gladiator type shit and it started off with this great little introduction of the establishment of the Gladiator sport and then...

Then there is an autograph, a mother on her seventh marriage, a slaughtered husband(doesn't even put up a fight), a winner, a dowry bracelet, an arranged marriage, some persistent paparazzi, a suicide, a mentally retarded brother, a corrupt Gladiator Association, a fixed match, a lion and a projection...and NO ONE winning by the conclusion of this horrible idea for a book! I feel like I lost a percentage of myself and gained stupidity by the end of this, I felt dumb for a couple of days, just wondering around wondering WTF just happened. Questioning my faith in everything I believed in...

Who would take time out of their lives to write this? And then go as so far as to put a girl on the cover that gives the illusion that there is some actual fighting going on? WHY!?
