"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.

What a Boy Needs - Nyrae Dawn 4.5 stars

I was wondering what was going on with Jaden in [b:What a Boy Wants|13561963|What a Boy Wants (What a Boy Wants, #1)|Nyrae Dawn|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1333230053s/13561963.jpg|19137078] and was thrilled that this book was exactly that, his POV. I knew with the cover being different that something was up (and no, I didn’t read the premise) but was still pleasantly surprised!

Poor Jaden, when I read what he was going through I gave him even more kudos for being the great and awesome guy that he was. He defied the odds and turned out to be a respectable and honest human being because honestly, with his fucked up upbringing, he could have seriously done worse than just keeping it all in. Although there were many times during this read that I wanted to shout at him for burying it all, for not trusting the tight knit circle of friends who would never betray him and to just let Pris in…or anyone for that matter! And by the way, I love Pris, she was able to see right through his shit and call him on it! I liked how she stayed on him until he cracked wide open and even then she carried the weight of his burden and her own with grace.

She’s awesome and together they are epic.
