message 2: by Lola (new) - added it

Lola (lolasreviews) | 563 comments I own this book and started reading it, but I didn't finish it. I think I had different expectations. And I didn't like the main character. I seem to be one of the only ones who didn't like it though.

Eek! Sorry to hear that Lola! I've heard good things, just picked up my copy, I'm hoping I like it more than you!


message 4: by Lola (new) - added it

Lola (lolasreviews) | 563 comments I hope so too! I have heard many people realy liked it, so I probably am the exception here :P


Bethany | 171 comments I love this book. I love fantasy of this kind. I really liked the main character and the plot and everything. I'll probably go into more detail later as the discussion progresses. I don't want to post spoilers just yet.

Another book to go pick up! I was thinking of actually buying it, because its a beautiful book!


Gabby I Loved this one!! I got it from the Goodreads "First Reads" and read it, reviewed it, and LOVED IT!! I'm a Dorian fan, 100% :)

Yay!! That's a glowing review that makes me want to read it!


Jazzabella ~*~ Catherine~*~ (jazzabella) | 87 comments This certainly wasn't one of my most favourite books but I did like it. I don't have a favourite between the men yet as I still feel like I don't REALLY know either of them yet. From what I do get from their characters they both have good and bad points.

Did anyone read the novellas too?


Jenna (jennasilver) | 42 comments Yess they definitively worth reading to.

Cool, thanks!


Gabby I haven't read the novellas...yet :)


message 15: by Ruby (new) - rated it 5 stars

Ruby Black (ruby_black) YAY!!! Just saw that this is the BOTM!!!! Such a great story!!!

I read the novellas, I suggest reading them first!!! They give you more foundation and background to the novel!

I absolutely absolutely loved this story - it has such a strong female character in it. Just the mere trials and tribulations she goes through is shocking!

I summed up my thoughts here a little more eloquently if you are interested!

Hehe I was wondering when you'd chime in Rubes! I nominated this book because you recommended it! I was so excited when it got the votes :)

Cheers for that Karen! I hope you like it as much as I did - box of tissues on hand might help as well.

Aw really - my first book rec to get some clout *yay*

I hope everyone likes it as much as I did, though I hope everyone reads the novellas first and then the novel (it was the order in which author released the story).

Can't wait to see how this discussion turns out to be.

No probs, wish I had the warning (I listened to the same song for days - lol ;)

Ruby Black (ruby_black) No probs. I'm so stoked to hear ya guys got them :) The novellas are a quick read, but get more intense as you read each of them. Can't wait to hear what you guys think :)

Karen’s Library | 11320 comments Mod
I finished the first one as well and just started on the second. I liked it alot as well!! ;)


Elisa | 24 comments I finished the novellas and started Throne of Glass. Thank you to Ruby for saying to read them first. I think you need the background from the novellas to really like Throne of Glass. Plus, the novellas were great reads!

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 10713 comments Mod
Awesome Elisa, can't wait to hear what you think!

I finished the first three and will finish the fourth tonight. I really enjoyed them too, particularly the first and third :) Looking forward to getting into the full novel!

Oh and I love that the novellas were priced at only $.99, that's the way it should be!


message 39: by Ruby (new) - rated it 5 stars

Ruby Black (ruby_black) I can't wait till you guys are finished! Surprised that there hasn't been any cries of outrage yet...maybe the last novella should kick everyone into gear :) Don't want to give anything way, so mum's the word!


Karen’s Library | 11320 comments Mod
I'm loving the 2nd novella. A little over halfway through! :)

Noooo! *screams in outrage* Don't read this until you finish the 4th novella (view spoiler)


Elisa | 24 comments Screams of outrage for sure! It took me longer to read the 4th novella because I wasn't looking forward to a what might (and did) happen.

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 10713 comments Mod
How far along on Throne of Glass are you? I'll start tonight I think :)


Elisa | 24 comments I am not very far. Maybe chapter 4. I am reading it in book form and not on my Nook, which means I can't read it as easy with my kids around or the lights out.


message 45: by Ruby (new) - rated it 5 stars

Ruby Black (ruby_black) Sorry you guys had to experience that!!! I know it wasn't easy to swallow (at least not for me) Kept listening to music for days at home. (view spoiler) Can't wait to hear more from you guys!

Eek yeah it was tough, but is clearly crucial to her character development for the rest of the series. I can't wait to get into it!

Oh, I knew that happened because I read Throne of Glass first :) Not looking forward to reading the novellas because of that :/


Karen’s Library | 11320 comments Mod
Just finished the 3rd novella. I have a very bad feeling about #4. :(
