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.

Intuition (The Premonition, #2)

Intuition (The Premonition, #2) - Amy A. Bartol Hmm ok...This book was very much the same as the last, it's the story line that was keeping my interest and now even that is waning. The forced slang in an attempt to be "cool" is ever present. Now there is a love square and I despise love squares although this one seems to be interesting given the latest addition to the mix is some kind of faerie vampire, but now she has to worry about hurting three men instead of just two and that in itself is arduous, in addition to her becoming predictable. However, Evie is a strong female protagonist, being inside of her head and listening to every thought is excruciating but what comes out of her mouth is consistent and that's what really counts.

Evie can talk the talk and walk the walk which I'm grateful for as other leading protagonists desperately who want to avenge their fallen comrades while insisting they are adept, only to require rescuing only milliseconds later. But she's too damn emotional, yes Evie, shit happened. Get over it, some crying about everything and act because that's why no one ever invites you to their parties..you whiny baby.

Russell was and sorta kinda is still my favorite, being inside of his head for 90 some odd pages has tarnished his bravado because know I am fully aware that he's pathetic in his need for Evie and no longer feel sorry for him when she rejects him because he does it to himself. However, I love that he has embraced his inner Angel because he is pretty bad ass and I want to see what else he's capable of.

The rest of the characters are written well and I've grown to love them. I will probably read book numero tres because now predictable Evie is probably going to sneak off to "save" everyone else and face faerie vamp all by herself because he has her old elementary school friend, but let me not make assumptions because Amy Bartol has been consistent in surprising me and doing the complete opposite of my assumptions...
