♥Rachel♥ Yay Holli you liked this. It was really good! :)


message 2: by Holli (new)

Holli I LOVED it! :) I picked it up and didn't put it back down till it was finished! LOL Looking forward to book two! :)) Have you read the prequil, Daimon?


message 3: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Yes, it was really good too. Did you read it?


message 4: by Holli (new)

Holli Not yet. I have it on my nook, just have to sit down and read it. Haven't done any reading since yesterday. :)


message 5: by Holli (new)

Holli Is it just me, or did it remind you of VA also?


message 6: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Oh yeah, there's a lot of talk about that too. If you read some of the reviews it's mentioned quite a bit.


message 7: by Holli (new)

Holli I liked it a lot better though. I dunno, maybe I was PMS'n when I started VA, ... but I couldn't get past book two. I really enjoy books that are mixed with Greek Mythology, though.


message 8: by Paola (new)

Paola I loved this book also :o) Looking forward to read the next one.


message 9: by Holli (new)

Holli Yeah, you read it too!?


message 10: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ I think there were a lot of similarities in the beginning but as the book progressed they felt very different. I loved both VA and this one though. I'm looking forward to the next book too, Paola! Thank goodness Jennifer isn't making us wait a whole year for it!


message 11: by Holli (new)

Holli It comes out early this year, right?


message 12: by Paola (new)

Paola I really enjoyed it! Looking forward to many great books coming out this month.


message 13: by Holli (new)

Holli Too many, Paola! LOL


message 14: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Pure comes out April 3rd this year. Yay!


message 15: by Paola (new)

Paola I can't wait to read Cinder. Oh and I need to read Bloodrose even though I heard some really nasty reviews about it.


message 16: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ I'm not sure if I can even read Bloodrose now after what Kristina said. I have it pre-ordered though. :(


message 17: by Holli (new)

Holli Yeah!!! April is not that far of a wait! EEEK! Yeah, I am way disappointed in Andrea with Bloodrose now too. I think it may just sit pretty on my shelf. So heartbroken over that!!! Sigh*


message 18: by Paola (new)

Paola Kristina didn't tell me what happens. Strange how it got almost 5 star ratings. I will read it and see what happens.


message 19: by Holli (new)

Holli Those ratings might be from people anticipating it but who haven't read it yet. Or from ARC's, ... but Kristina told me what happened and I am not a happy camper. I had much different hopes for the ending. :(


message 20: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Let me know what you think Paola. I think I'm going to hold off on this one. :)


message 21: by Holli (new)

Holli I'm with you, Rachel. I'll wait for Paola and see what she thinks! Bwahahahaaaaa ... still, ... knowing what I know, ... it may be the Apocalypse before I pick it up. LOL


message 22: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Same here Holli. I had Kristina tell me too, just because I could tell from her comments that whatever happened wasn't good. :(

I will probably eventually read this though.


message 23: by Paola (new)

Paola Anyone care to share the details? I don't know now if I should read it or just be happy with book one and two.


message 24: by Holli (new)

Holli My daughter is going to be far worse than me. She was the one who got me started on this series. I didn't have the heart to tell her what I know just that she wasn't going to be happy. I hope she doesn't put a hole in the wall with the book! LOL


message 25: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Do you really want to know Paola? I'll forward Kristina's messages on this if you do. But be prepared, it spoils the whole thing.

I could see violence being a result of reading Bloodrose!


message 27: by Holli (new)

Holli It really does. :(


message 28: by Paola (new)

Paola I would like to know if possible. I will still get my copy on the 3rd since I have it pre ordered I just wont read it yet or maybe I will, I rather not be shocked when I read it.


message 29: by Kristina (new)

Kristina Snyder I loved Half-Blood and VA too!!!! Half-Blood is similar in the beginning, but I think it does change throughout the book. I love Aiden, and at the end I started to really like Seth as well.

I hated Bloodrose which you all know that.Still can't quit venting over that. I am finally going to write my review tomorrow since I am off. I still haven't figured what to say. LOL


message 30: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Paola, I just messaged you with what Kristina told me.

Hey there Kristina! :)


message 31: by Kristina (new)

Kristina Snyder Hey Rachel!!!! I fell asleep and just woke up. Now I am not going to be able to sleep tonight.


message 32: by Paola (new)

Paola I don't even know what to say! Andrea is just insane to have ruined a wonderful series like this. This is just horrible.


message 33: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ I don't understand it at all, Paola.


message 34: by Holli (new)

Holli Total heartbreak for the literary world!

Reading will cure that! Haha :)


message 36: by Kristina (new)

Kristina Snyder Did you read what happens Paola? I have been venting to everyone at work about too. I really did almost throw the book. Worst ending ever. I don't know what she was thinking. I can't even go back and reread the first one like I usually do knowing what happens.


message 37: by Paola (new)

Paola I think I will still read it once it arrives. I understand that not all stories can have a happy ending so i'm just curious to see how it plays out and how well she wrote it. Although I still think it is very sad, I do love my happy endings.


message 38: by Holli (new)

Holli Let us know what you think!


message 39: by Kristina (new)

Kristina Snyder When you all read it, we can vent together. LOL The writing was really good, just hated what happens. Gosh I am hoping That doesn't happen in the Firelight series now. I love Will, but fell for Cassian in the last book.


message 40: by Paola (new)

Paola Colleen better not ruin the Tiger series for us lol Imagine something stupid like this.


message 41: by Kristina (new)

Kristina Snyder She better not. In that video chat, she says she likes her happy endings. I did hear that part on what we could hear. So hopefully, we are good.


message 42: by Paola (new)

Paola I love the Firelight series also. I hate when series get ruined.


message 43: by Paola (new)

Paola I loved the Wolves Of Mercy series BUT I wasn't to happy with the ending of Forever. It just left me a little confused and wanting more.


message 44: by Kristina (last edited Jan 01, 2012 09:21PM) (new)

Kristina Snyder I didn't like that ending as well. It didn't close anything up. It left so many things open.


message 45: by Holli (new)

Holli She could have easily added a forth!


message 46: by Paola (new)

Paola I know!


message 47: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ I think I would have been fine with Shiver being a stand alone book, it ended really well and complete. I would have liked if any additional books were more of a spin-off with Isabel and Cole as the main characters and maybe get a glimpse of Sam & Grace on the side.


message 48: by Annie (new)

Annie Brewer Okay I came in on a good convo here. I wanna read Firelight. Looks like a good book. I am having a slow start reading Half Blood but its not the book. I absolutely LOVE the Tiger's saga!! Can't wait for Destiny! I loved Wolves of Mercy Fallas....and yes it could have ended better. But she left it opened for us to conclude ourselves. I am excited for Bloodrose...regardless of the reviews!! :)


message 49: by Holli (new)

Holli I agree with you, Rachel! Would like a spin off of Cole and Isabel in the future! :)


message 50: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Cole and Isabel were delicious! :)
