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.

Point of Retreat (Slammed, #2)

Point of Retreat (Slammed, #2) - Colleen Hoover Ok, so I know I’m not the only person who read this and from the very beginning had this pit in my stomach, my spider senses going haywire as I knew something was going to happen. The story seemed to imperfectly perfect; there was just the right amount of sadness and love. Then the thinkable and imaginable happens and I could finally exhale…

Lake and Will are cute, so absolutely adorable at times I felt their relationship was rushed. When Lake pointed out what she felt about the relationship and why it came to be, I was nodding with her because maybe that is why they fell so hard for each other so fast. But what can I say, I love a god contemporary-romance and their story was unique.

I also liked how this was written in Will’s POV. I got an inside look at how he felt, even though he wore his feelings on his sleeve for the most part but I enjoyed reading about the decisions that he made and why. Lake and her ‘carving pumpkins’ was humorous at times but mostly annoying, I’m upset that she just couldn’t deal with things! I felt like she didn’t have the luxury to act like a child, but in reality when would she be able to? I got it, I really did.

And lucky them to have so many level headed and minded people to aid them in becoming the people who I knew they’d be anyway, they are great for each other and great for the boy’s and they set good examples for their friends.

They are imperfectly perfect.
