21857 The Forever Watch by David B. Ramirez

So I picked this up this morning. Quite excited for it! :D Nice to read something a bit off the beaten path.

21857 It's a very visual experience. Cleverly done. Let me know when you have it!

21857 I have read this, but will refrain from commenting until others join in. I can say it's a refreshing and unique read!

21857 Maybe all the challenges can be condensed under one section? And I like a general chat section. It just seems a bit much right now, which is why I am not super active as I can't actually find posts easily. but that's just me. :) I will comment on the book of the month stuff in March as I have Illuminae and Royal Wedding.

I guess I miss a bookish community and want to encourage more chatter.

21857 Hey all!

I see there is not much activity going on this side and a chat on Twitter has resulted in a lot of us wanting to be more active this side as Twitter is flooded with a lot of negativity of late.

Can we perhaps streamline the forum a bit and bin all the topics and challenges no one is active in as it looks a hell of a cluttered right now?

Maybe a lot of the stuff can be reassigned to general chat?

I think this would encourage users to participate more as it is really very overwhelming right now. :)

Thoughts and suggestions?

21857 Kahlan, true! And the main character is likeable. There are some parts that are seriously funny too.

21857 :P I hate April Fools.

Finished up The Replacement. It is really awesome.

Currently reading Hex Hall and liking it a lot, even though it is definately younger than most YA I read. Sort of Meg Cabotish.

21857 Carnivale is awesome!!!

A local girl did the stunt riding for this film, so there is much hype about it right now.

I adored this book and it is well-worth the time. May revisit it for this month.

21857 Thanks all!

It would seem that way, Crusader! At least I cannot blame this one on my own stupidity!
Mar 31, 2011 10:49AM

21857 Ah I had no expectations going into it. It is very different than what I was expecting too. It could be more fleshed out but still loving it!

21857 Reading The Replacement. Worth the time!
Mar 31, 2011 09:58AM

21857 I was in Cape Town last weekend and got The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff, which is awesome so far. Also got LA Weatherly's Angel, 13 Till Life, Hex Hall and Entangled by Cat Clarke. The EBs down there blow my fragile little mind.

I have been diagnosed with Glandular Fever so have the next week off to read read read and SLEEEEEP!
