"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
Scott Brick, Kevin J. Anderson, Dean Koontz
Immortal City - Scott Speer It took me a couple of chapters to really get into this book because it's from a third person perspective and I didn't connect with the main character instantly as a result, but I then soon realized that its written from the perspective of three characters and quickly grew to appreciate that.

I can definitely tell that this was written by a novice author. If this isn't a new writer, he and I are going to have to have a talk, lol. The descriptions were not only simple but vague and there was heavy influence on material possessions. I understand that he needed to set the tone of the story but he could easily describe to a T what so and so was wearing however, he couldn't give a thorough physical description of how Maddy looks.

After you get through the first 3 or 4 chapters, the story line really starts to take off and I had to overlook the fact that there are parts throughout the story where he just has no idea how to take the perspective of a female. Other than that, it wasn't a horrible read, I was entertained throughout to the very end...and that twist at the end? What?! That was pretty good.

Am I going to read the second installment?

abso-fuckin-lutely. I want to see what happens at that training camp!
