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.

Frankenstein: Prodigal Son

The Pledge - Kimberly Derting Boy was that Queen the biggest bitch this side of the West, amiright?. She was an evil little thing and it was kind of unsettling. Every time, it went back to her perspective, I flinched.

Charlie is an interesting character with the ability to understand every language in her country, when it is against the law to do so. But outside of that ability, she is very plain Jane and at times I found myself shaking my head because of her ignorance.

The love aspect of this read was very typical and it wasn't this emotional event for me, my heart didn't swell and I didn't sigh, my eyes didn't gloss over and go out of focus while my mind and imagination drifted off into a fictional book, coupled with a dash of jealousy that that 17 year old bitch had my man! It was predictable.

The plot was actually very predictable and the characters where especially boring. There wasn't anything page turning about this story. Even that attempt to a twist at the end was very anticlimactic...but I didn't hate it. I just wont be reading the second installment tis all.
