Trisha | 31440 comments um, how many do you want to read?? I'm good with however many... It's my daughter's bday today too..so I won't be on very much today.

I read really quickly, so I can read a lot or I can take it easy and read just a few. I'm totally open!

okay, I grabbed the book. looks like there are 46 chapters.

finishing chapter 14 puts us at about 110 pages and at the beginning of Part III

if you want to read less, let me know.

if you want to read more, then reading through chapter 23 puts us about 1/2 way on page 185...

let me know, we can do more or less, either way

Angela | 17787 comments In a good way or bad?


Maria (pinklove_lovestoread) | 61 comments It's okay.I like it.

good. it's a tough topic to write about and, instead of being all series, it's actually pretty funny :)

Okay, my goal tomorrow is to get to 223 and stop at Part 4: Bargaining

I hope you are enjoying it!


Maria (pinklove_lovestoread) | 61 comments I was only able to get about 100 pages in yestday.I just read so slow.I am try yo catch up today.

Trisha are you enjoying the book?I am it's pretty good.


message 22: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments Yeah, it's good - I didn't expect this type of book to be so funny so that's a nice change... :)

We can do less pages today, if that makes it easier?? I only did about 100 pages yesterday too!!!

Do you want to maybe do like 50 today?? 147 has us at chapter 18...

just let me know! :)

Maria (pinklove_lovestoread) | 61 comments Yeah that is good.I am at chapter 22 page 171.

I really do like it too how it's a sad topic but fuuny.I sure like Patrick's character.

We can do about 50 more pages tommorrow.I check back tomorrow and see what you think.


message 24: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments okay, I've stopped at Section 5, page 292.

And Brie isn't really a very good person. wow....how far did you get?
It's kind of gone from funny to pretty sad....


Maria (pinklove_lovestoread) | 61 comments Yeah I see why you can say that about Brie.

I somehow knew that maybe her dad was going to have someone else.


message 26: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments I know....but who he picked?! Pretty harsh!!!!

Yeah, Brie is kind of losing herself in the "revenge" part of it all right now. I'm hoping she starts to see reason soon.

I'll probably finish this book tomorrow. I'll check back in!

:)

no worries, it sounds like Angela just started so we have time.

I haven't finished it yet, but I'll make sure to stay mum about the ending until you guys are both done....

:)


Angela | 17787 comments I'm probably not going to finish this tomorrow, but who knows? I'm going to be out the whole day today and it'll be too late to read at 2 in the morning, so I'll have to see if I can finish it tomorrow. But tomorrow's Christmas. :o I'll have it done by/on Wednesday though. This book is really good!

Merry Christmas guys~! :D

Angela | 17787 comments Thanks guys :) You too!!


Angela | 17787 comments I finished this today. My review's up. I really liked this book, more than I thought I would.

Maria, did you finish?


Maria (pinklove_lovestoread) | 61 comments Yeah I am finished I love it!!


Maria (pinklove_lovestoread) | 61 comments Angela I read your review.Great review I can never write such great reviews like you I suck.


message 38: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments Yay! So we're all done!!

what did you guys think?? Favorite part?? What did you not like?

Let's discuss :D


Maria (pinklove_lovestoread) | 61 comments I thought it was a very good book.Favorite part was the ending.I pretty much like everything.The book was sad at times but it was cute.

What about you guys?


message 40: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments Yes, I did like how the ending tied up the beginning - and her cause of death changed and she was able to patch up her mistakes...

I though the stages of death were really well done. and I thought her going through them was really well done, but I thought her going through all the revenge was just painful to read. i mean, I know it had to be in there and I know she needed to do it as part of her stages of grief...but ugh, it was so painful to watch her hurt her best friend and her exboyfriend....

I think my favorite part....although it sets her off, I thought the bonfire was a great tribute to her life.
But yeah, I liked the end best. When she got to come back and redo that day and change her mistakes. and then, of course, re-dying and making everything right :)


Angela | 17787 comments Sorry, I didn't see that you guys replied. There's something wrong with GR's notifications. ._.

@Maria - I liked the ending too, but I don't know if that's my favorite part.

@Trisha - Honestly, I didn't find her revenge all that hard to read. I didn't necessarily agree with it, but it was interesting to read. I really liked that she changed everything for the better. Jacob lived~ :D


Maria (pinklove_lovestoread) | 61 comments I thought the book was very well done.I am so happy I got to read this book as a buddy read!
