We're starting this Monday for anyone who wants to read along :)

30 chapters, but they are a bit longer...how about 6 a day (roughly 70 pages)? That would take us through Friday.

Is he really seeing Anna or is his mind playing tricks on him? What is going on with his sword? Is she tied to the sword now?

Are you having trouble with GR today? I thought it was just my computer at first because I haven't been able to get on here or my work website, but my work emailed me a little bit ago and said their whole server was down...

I was wondering that too. I think he's really seeing her in some way...like she's calling out to him for help from whereever she is. I was thinking while reading that this would make a really, really creepy movie.

I think because they really connected that he can sense when she is in trouble. What do you think about the vague messages about doing his job and not go looking into other things. As for as a movie goes, it would make a creepy one that I would never watch. lol

You think maybe Thomas' grandpa/uncle (I can't remember what he is to him now...) knows more than he's letting on? He's pretty cryptic.

Yes, I do. Something is going on that he is not saying.

What is up with Morfran sending Thomas and Cas to Aunt Ricca's house and not telling them she was dead? Or how did they not know she was dead when they were talking to her? That was creepy!! Definitely movie material!! Carmel is getting cold feet about the whole ghostbusting thing.

Anna is stuck in Hell with the Obeman. He is torturing her.

I thought the same thing! And he ate the cookies...gross!

I had been wondering what had been going on with Caramel (are the names in this book not strange?).

I kind of guessed this was what was happening. So far things seems to be going pretty slow. I hope it picks up soon. I have to read today's still but won't be able to until tonight.

I didn't forget about you here! I'm a little behind in my reading but hoping to catch up tonight :)

No problem. For some reason I'm not that into this one.

I was thinking the same thing. It's not nearly as good as the first. I'm really hoping it picks up soon. Even the "action" scenes, like where he was killing the ghost in the barn or seeing Anna through the window they created weren't really keeping me captivated.

Today's reading is a little better but we still aren't getting any answers.

What do you think of Justine? I don't trust her. She has her own agenda. I don't know what do think about Gideon and The Order. Carmel is back! She just couldn't leave Thomas and Cas alone.

Okay, finished last night. I'll write out more later this morning, but here's a quick summary...

I'm glad the book picked up after they got to London. The first half seemed too slow. However, I was still a bit let down by it. I'm not sure if it's because I liked Anna Dressed in Blood so much that this book had a lot to live up to, or what. I hated giving it only 3 stars, but that's kind of what I was thinking I was going to rate it even at about halfway through. Anyway, I'll write more later this morning!

For our next read, how about Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1) by Jamie McGuire since it's the book of the month anyway? We could just use the other thread as our thread, we'd just have to cover up our spoilers.

Or, if how about The Future of Our Past (The Remembrance Trilogy, #1) by Kahlen Aymes ?

I totally agree. I don't know if I am disappointed or happy that Anna didn't come back. I am glad that they ended up together and happy where he left her.

I have both. Which one are you wanting to read?

Okay, here's my review. This should summarize everything I have to say. Sorry I wasn't in this one as much. Crazy week :)

By the way, I love the idea of the Suicide Forest. That would make a great ghost story.

That was creepy!! Great review as always!

Thanks :)

Okay, for Beautiful Disaster, how about 4 chapters a day. They are long chapters and 4 would be about 20% on the Kindle, which would takes us to Friday again.

We can just use the BotM thread for discussion, and maybe other people will join in. We'll just have to be more careful to hide spoilers.

How do you hide spoilers? That sounds good.

Put your text inside tags like these...

So it will look like (view spoiler)
