message 23: by Ally (new) - rated it 4 stars

Ally (bookishally) | 443 comments I'll join in on the discussion! I need to find time to read the final installment that just came out, Reached!

And yes, I've heard a lot of criticism about this story as well. It's not that it's bad, sometimes the language is just more poetic and flowery than most dystopian books, in my opinion. I didn't mind it and you may not either.


Tayla Robichaud (trobes7x) | 1648 comments So what's the plan

Trisha | 31380 comments Tayla wrote: "So what's the plan"

well, we don't plan to read this one until December 9th, so normally I would wait until that day or the day before and then we'd start chatting about how many chapters to read, etc.

I'm joining in on this! I read it back in 2011 and I plan on re-reading it.


Tayla Robichaud (trobes7x) | 1648 comments Whoop whoop


message 28: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31380 comments just got the book today! Can't wait!!! :D


Tayla Robichaud (trobes7x) | 1648 comments Anyone wanna start now?!


message 30: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31380 comments well, Gisbelle is hoping to read with us, and she's still gone, so we should probably wait :) even though it's hard!! LOL


Diana | 618 comments I read Matched a while back. It was a little boring for me actually... Definitely wordy and poetic


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

I am so excited to read this book!


message 33: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new) - rated it 3 stars

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments LOL! I have heard some good reviews and then some really bad reviews so I guess I'll have to wait and see how I like it!

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Hey guys, I might not be on a lot for the next couple of days because my aunt just had a baby and it's taking a lot of my time up right now! Hopefully everything dies down before this buddy read starts!


message 37: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31380 comments ahhh, Congratulations to your Aunt (and to you) for the new addition to the family! :) no worries, just jump in when you can :D

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Thanks! Okay, thanks! Everything should be calming down by then but it may not be! Also, just in case on December 8th I won't be online for most of the day because I am participating in a local craft fair!
