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.

Unearthly (Unearthly, #1)

Unearthly (Unearthly, #1) - Cynthia Hand Great book. Really awesome read, I appreciated the Clara character, she is witty and level-headed. Finally a woman who can fall in love with one guy and even though there is an equally hot guy, she stays in love with the first one! When I was reading it, I kept thinking to myself "ok, so you say you love Tucker, but I know that when Christian shows his hot little face again, you're going to be all over him like butter on bread...hmph, please honey, I've read enough of these books to know what's really going to go on here" but it didn't happen! Her feelings stayed true and consistent and the insecurities she has about her future and Christian are appropriate. Hand did a great job with keeping my attention throughout this entire book, from the beginning to the very end, also, I enjoyed that fact that there was finally a leading lady with her emotions in tact, my God how I loved that! I didnt have to deal with the "I don't know how I'm supposed to feel" "Why are all these guys attracted to me?" "I'm not pretty, I see a plain Jane when I look in the mirror" waaa waa waa woe is me and people should feel sorry for me because I am celestial being and I see visions.

Now on to Hallowed...
