Everyone come join Karen, Jenny and I for a buddy read of Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, the sequel to Cinder! We're starting on Saturday, February 16th. There's no limit to how many chapters we're reading each day, so everyone can read at their own pace, but please post what chapter you're up to and use spoiler tags so we know which comments we can read once we're far enough along.

Other than that, HAPPY READING!!


Donna (DonaNicole) | 354 comments I would love to join in but haven't read Cinder yet and I think these books are more than I usually spend. However I am reading Maze Runner which was free or a short time and the sequels and prequel are all almost Ten bucks. Anyway, will read it later and have fun!

Aww thank you! Hopefully you'll get to read Cinder someday, it's really good! But enjoy The Maze Runner!!

Me too! Saturday morning, I'll grab a cup of my yummy Starbucks machine's Cafe Latte, curl up in my overstuffed chair and turn on my Nook and dig in! ;-). I won't get out of my jammies unless I have to leave the house for something.

Hi, anxious to hear how you liked the Kill Order too. I am still reading Maze Runner and so loving it. Two more books to read in that series and then Kill Order. No spoilers, though, LOL.

Yay!! I'm so excited everyone's started :) I finished chapter 5 and I am so confused about what to think of Wolf!

Karen | 4826 comments Mod
I'm about 45% in and I'm still confused about Wolf. Hahah.. I like him? :-)

And Meyer is a big fan of Firefly and Captain Malcom Reynolds. I can see the influence in Cinder's story.

Loving this book!

Sorry about your headache Jenny. I was like that this afternoon so had to stop reading. I didn't want to miss anything! I finally got rid of mine!

Ooohhh... I wanna read your spoiler so bad. I had to run MY errands today and just got back so I'll be jumping back in shortly. :) I got a few more pages in at lunch. I took my mangy pup and went to a diner that caters to pooches with dog bowls and doggy biscuits. It's a gorgeous day out (73 degrees) here in sunny Scottsdale. Days like THIS is why I live in my own version of Fire Country!

But, I just want to say, so very cool how the two books are finally weaving together (view spoiler).

LOL David! I know that feeling, and I'm amazed I'm so far ahead! But this book is pretty hard to put down!
I'll wait for you to catch up though ;)
I have plenty of other books I should be reading!
I'm in Iowa, so I hear about you warmer weather! Although I think it was close to 40F today, which is unseasonably warm for this time of year!

I've seen reviews that said the same thing about Kai. I'm at 84%. Wanted to finish but fell asleep. Dang it.

What I'm really loving are all the little nuances of the fairy tales (view spoiler)

Really loving this book! Can't wait to see how she brings the next two fairytales into the story!

I hear ya, David. That's me throughout the week. But because today is kind of a holiday, I pretended I was off for the holiday (to emails and phone calls) but really worked until 2:00. So I really did take a few hours off today! But only to read the end of Scarlet. I just HAD to finish! :-P

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 7888 comments Mod
Lolita didn't get any reading time after all as I'm back to writing now, but I'll read again tonight but it might take me a couple more days, I'm pathetically slow and the worst buddy reader! But I'm really enjoying it!

I really like Wolf and I want to know more of his backstory because he seems interesting :) Although I'm not completely sold on the love story between him and Scarlet (view spoiler)
