Kim Are you enjoying this Arlene? ;)

message 2: by Alexa (new)

Alexa I want spoilers! >:3

message 3: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Eeek! I added this from my BB and I must have pressed the wrong button. I don't have it yet. Sorry!

message 4: by Alexa (new)

Alexa Aww man... ;P lol

message 5: by Kim (new)

Kim I figured there was something fishy going on ;)

message 6: by Arlene (new)

Arlene LOL Sorry! I bet she hasn't even finished writing it yet. The first time I added it from the BB it marked it at read.

message 7: by Alexa (new)

Alexa On her site, she said that she turned in first draft last month. Ends in cliffhanger! :o

message 8: by Kim (new)

Kim But we don't have to wait long for the 3rd one to come out after that!

message 9: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Cliffhanger means more books!! Yay!

Which is good!

@Arlene: Yes!

message 11: by Janina (new)

Janina I checked out Marchetta's website as well -I'm so excited there are two more books! - but I was wondering: Are they going to be released in Australia only first - like with the Piper's Son? I really hope not!

message 12: by Arlene (new)

Arlene I hope not! We usually have to wait about 6 months to get them here in the US. Torture!

message 13: by Alexa (new)

Alexa Forgot about that. @.@;; Hope not as well!

message 14: by Nic (new)

Nic Now, no needed to worry about US release date. The aussie book angel will come to the resuce!

message 15: by ~Tina~ (new)

~Tina~ 2012?!?!? Mannnnnn I want it NOW!

message 16: by Kim (new)

Kim Can't wait to see the store clerck's face when you order 25 copies Nic ;)

message 17: by Janina (new)

Janina Nic, you should really consider founding an Aussie online book shop. We would be your best customers. You could even name it 'Aussie Book Angel' ;).

message 18: by Alexa (last edited Jan 09, 2011 01:48PM) (new)

Alexa @Tina: Actually, I guessed 2012. But I think it's possible. ^.^

Yay! Nic saves the day yet again!

message 19: by Nic (new)

Nic Hopefully if I save enough money and can go to that library thing in May. I can ask Marchetta about the release date. She might know by then.

message 20: by Kim (new)

Kim Don't forget to tell her about our group and our amazing ability to read arcs...

message 21: by Nic (last edited Jan 09, 2011 01:58PM) (new)

Nic LOL. I will wear a shirt that says 'Booker members will read Marchetta's ARC' and then in small print but we require 10 copies min.

message 22: by ~Tina~ (new)

~Tina~ LOL!

message 23: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Awww Nic, you're a good angel. :) LOL about the shirt. Tell her we'll make her an honorary member! :)

message 24: by Mayomi (new)

Mayomi Hi Arlene, have you got your copy of this book yet?

message 25: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Hey Mayomi. I did. I'm so excited to read it, but our bookclub set the reading date for the 24th, so I'm biting my nails and counting down the days. :D

Did you get yours??

message 26: by Mayomi (last edited Oct 18, 2011 10:06AM) (new)

Mayomi Awwww! thought as much, because I'm sure you would have been all over this like a rash. Gosh! Your self control must be outta this world, for I don't think I could have the book so close and not sneak a peak ;)

Just ordered mine, hope it gets here soon. I can hardly contain my excitement. Tatiana's review got me more excited

message 27: by ~Tina~ (new)

~Tina~ I made my hubby hide my copy. I'm having a really hard time with this one. Who's idea was this to be a bookclub read?!?!??!?
...oh yeah, it was mine ~head desk~


message 28: by Arlene (new)

Arlene @ Mayomi. It came in last week and I promptly put it away. :) I heard it's really good, so I'm excited too.

@ Tina. LOL Your hubby is a brave man to take on such a dare. Do NOT come between me and my books... the results will lead to pain. :P Oh I'm okay with waiting. Bones is entertaining me right now, so I'm good for about a week before my self control flies out the window. I enjoy the group reads too, so it's all good. XD

message 29: by Mayomi (new)

Mayomi LOL!@ Tina, as Arlene said, your hubby must be a brave man indeed.

@ Arlene, Hope I receive mine before the 24th, Maybe I can join you guys? Never done a group read before.

message 30: by Shelley (new)

Shelley yeah!!!!!!!!!

message 31: by Mayomi (new)

Mayomi Can't wait to read your thoughts on this. Happy reading dear! ;)

message 32: by Wendy (new)

Wendy Has everyone seen the 'other' cover of Froi? .... look at that sexy eye!!!

message 33: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Very nice Wendy!! Which one do you like better? I have the one with the tatted back.

message 34: by Wendy (new)

Wendy I have the red cover, which is perfect, really.

But that face is awesome! I love the dark hair with blue eyes...

message 35: by Amber (new)

Amber Fantastic review Arlene! Ugh these reviews are killing me...I just want to hug my book and read it all over again!

message 36: by Hannah (new)

Hannah Awesome review, Arlene!

message 37: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Thank you Amber. I'm not quite ready to start another book because I'm still hugging Froi as well. LOL

Thanks so much Hannah. I think I fixed the last of the typos. I was emotional when I wrote this one. Such a beautiful story. :)

message 38: by Alexa (new)

Alexa Arlene, love your review! :) This book was amazing.

message 39: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Thanks Alexa! I tried to post at the club, but my comments are being blocked. :/ I might have used a not so good word or something. LOL My brain is still reeling over the ending. GAH!!!

message 40: by ~Tina~ (new)

~Tina~ Such an amazing review Arlene! You have me reaching for this book again when I finally had the guts to actually set it down. SO looking forward to the next book!!

message 41: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Thank you Tina! I loved this book to pieces! LOL I have about a dozen "hold that thought" post-its throughout the book. Passages I've been reading over and over again. So much to love about this book. :)

I can't wait for next one either. I feel like I fell off la Gravina on that cliffy! LOL

message 42: by ~Tina~ (new)

~Tina~ LMAO!! I know exactly what you mean. It's just such a power read. It's hard to stop thinking about it.

message 43: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Very hard. I can't wait for book 3. I need it NOW. :D

message 44: by Nomes (new)

Nomes Arlene,

I LOVE how you review! so full of emotion and passion. This is brilliant, one of my fave reviews of your so far <3

also, LOL at the first comments on this thread. Hahahaha :)

message 45: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Wow! Thank you so much Nomes. :) I cannot wait to see how you feel about this book. I'm looking forward to your reaction. :D

LOL, I've since been careful not to add books using my BB. I can never just add something as "to read" it automatically marks them "read". :/


message 46: by Wendy (last edited Oct 31, 2011 04:39PM) (new)
