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.

Currently reading

Frankenstein: Prodigal Son
Scott Brick, Kevin J. Anderson, Dean Koontz
City of Bones  - Cassandra Clare I rated it three stars because as per Goodreads, I liked it.

It took me a minute to get into this read and even now I cant say that I am captivated. To me it felt very monotone, that it just kind of dragged on and even the adrenaline inducing situations didn't shock me out of my insipid mood. I could say that it was easy for me to be a functioning member of society and walk away from this read, but that wouldn't be entirely true. I discovered that when I walked away from this book, my thoughts unconsciously drifted back to the story-line and realized that even though I had to force myself to continue reading, I needed to know what happened next.

Clary isn't weak but she isn't a strong protagonist either and she actually wasn't very bright. She was who bored me the most, a lot of things had to be spelled out to her and I really despised how she would get a piece of information and thought she wrote the book. Well, maybe that isn't fair, she could be right about the Jace thing, but I wont ever find out because I have no intentions of continuing the series.

All the other characters were boring, boring, boring. I'm bored.
