Rayne Cillian : I'm reading this one because of you, so whatever happens its your fault :D

Rayne Well, it was a long time ago and the comment probably got swallowed by all the traffic you must get on your page, but yeah, I read it and I blamed you for liking it so much.

I was thinking of writing a review, so, okay. I'll put on up soon.

By the way, I owe you for raving about this book so much and making me want to read it. I loved it and the only reason why I gave it 4 stars was because at the time I was frustrated with the unresolved ending, but now I see no reason to give it that final star. So, thanks!

Rayne When I first read it, I was a bit disappointed because I wasn't used to reading books like Imaginary Girls, books in which the quality the writing and the depth of the storytelling were more important than the actual plot that goes from point A to point B where everything is explained and makes sense. But after giving this book a lot of thought, I have to say is simply one of the best books I've ever read. Suma's writing is perfection and her characters are haunting in their realistic imperfection. And I agree, the whole tone of the novel would've been lost if that particular factor had been explained. So, don't be surprised if I add that final star when I write the review.

I bought Chime a while ago, but I still haven't touched it. Actually, I bought it because I saw you gave it 5 stars and if you loved it, I knew I would too. 85%? Hmm, I haven't read a good book about witches in a while, so Chime just got officially bumped up on my to read list. I'll probably get into it next week then. Again, whether I love it or hate it, it's on you. No pressure XD

Rayne Don't worry, Cill, I will. And likewise. Actually, if you ever dislike a book I recommend, tell me even faster so the conversation can really begin. I love hearing what you have to say about books, regardless of what it is, so I can only assume thinking differently about one book will lead to one intense conversation. Now I'm actually looking forward to that.

Huh, now I'm actually even more interested. I didn't know Chime had that type of atmosphere. I assumed it would be like Born Wicked (of which I've read very little because I always forget to finish it). And I like voices like that one, well, most of the time. Now I'll definitely get to it as soon as I can.

Rayne I hope so. I guess I'll let you know how it goes. I am definitely reading it next week.

Tsunami Oh, this thread...

Rayne Good times :')
