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.

Fade Into Always (Fade, #3)

Fade Into Always (Fade, #3) - Kate Dawes I still can’t classify this as a ‘romance’; it is still very much a porno. I didn’t feel anything towards our little protagonist when that major “life threatening” experience happened. Not. A. Thing. It was more foreplay than anything truly dangerous, dontcha think?

Oooo now let’s move on to favorite quotes!!

Sometimes Grace could be really rational and insightful. Sometimes she could be really naïve. And Sometimes she could be both of those things at almost the same time”

This was a statement that was made by little Olivia after her sister has the au-da-city to claim that she was in love with Max, how dare she right? That Bitch…even though she hit the nail on the head…no, no you’re right Liv, she is just SO naïve! What the hell does she know, right? Damn sisters and their goddamned perception!

AND...

“But I’ll need an assistant, someone who will read all of my stuff and not bullshit me with empty praise. Just like you did the other day. You were so brilliant, Olivia. Your ideas made the story so much better”

Said after Olive juice, mentioned that there was on aspect of the girl’s reaction at a certain point in the story that she thought would work better if he changed it a little…YES, Olivia you ARE a great critic, there was AB-SO-LUTELY no bullshit there, you did make it better, the story WAS 10 times better because of your input and because of that one aspect of the girl’s reaction that could be slightly changed that you mentioned…You know what? Matter of fact, you busy? Cause I have a script I need you to read and since you’re so good at it, you can spare me the bullshit and give me a vague description of one of the character’s personality that could be indiscernibly altered at some random juncture in the script.

Thanks Liv, you my girl!

There were just so many quotes that had my WTS flaring up…let me stop here.
