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.

Cinder - Marissa Meyer Wow! I actually really loved this book! I have to admit the beginning is kind of slow and the author didnt describe Cinder, so for awhile there I was at a loss to what she looked like, my imagination had to go into overdrive. It also took me a while to get into the story line, as I knew it was a spin off of Cinderella but it was lacking something that I needed to grasp my attention, so I kept coming back and reading all the rave reviews to keep me going, however, once it picked up...it was just. Wow. I was so embarrassed for Cinder in certain parts of this read, I was actually cringing while reading because I was too embarrassed for her to continue, but I HAD to! Meyer did a great job with going into great detail in most of the plot. Great rendition of Cinderella and seriously, I was 190 pages in before I realized the setting was in Beijing...all of you who are now reading this review and shaking your head in shame and disgust at my idiocy, believe me I lived it.

looking forward to the next installment!
