Ally (arhart) | 443 comments Hi everyone! We're reading I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore on the 25th. Feel free to join us!!


Ally (arhart) | 443 comments Oh, and I just realized that my high school graduation is that day so I may read that day's (and the day after's) "chunks" a little earlier because those two days are a bit hectic for me.


Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments Do you need to move it Ally? Dont' want you to worry about a book with a great thing like Graduation happening! Congrats, btw!


Ally (arhart) | 443 comments No, I'll be fine! I don't have school at all because I'm exempt from finals, so I'll have some downtime. And I've been waiting so long to read this LOL


Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments Excellent! Well, congrats again on finishing up your senior year! :-) My daughter will be a junior in the fall. It goes soooooo fast. Ok, I'll shut up now! LOL


Ally (arhart) | 443 comments Thank you! It really does go by fast. I'm hoping college doesn't go by this quickly as well, but I feel like it will be faster D: Good luck to your daughter next year though, being a junior is brutal with the workload, SATs, colleges and all :p


Yoly | 696 comments Congratulations Ally!!!

I will read this book too. I want to read or from long time ago.


Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments Yay Yoly! The more the merrier! :-)

Exactly! There are just TOO many books. Oh well!

Yoly | 696 comments That's right and I try to read more and is just like I read one book bit I found 3 or 4 more that I want to read, so the "to read list" just keep growing up


Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) After finishing a book it's hard to choose what to read next, there are lots of good books out there.

Ally (arhart) | 443 comments The worst is when you're really booked up on buddy reads and then you read them but they're part of a series and you're dying to read the next one but you have like three more buddy reads in a row and physically can't fit it in. #readingproblems

Exactly Ally. I'm going to say "reading probs" to my 16 yo and have her roll her eyes at me! LOL. She says "swimmer probs" all the time when her joints ache, lol!

Ally (arhart) | 443 comments Hi guys!! What are we thinking? Every five chapters or should we split it up formally? And Kathryn, we'll let you know! ;)


message 20: by Yoly (new) - rated it 4 stars

Yoly | 696 comments I think 5 chapters is ok :)


Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments Sounds good to me too!


Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments Happy Graduation Ally! Enjoy your special day!!!!


Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments Totally loving this so far! So unique!!!!

Yoly | 696 comments Congratulations Ally!!!!

I finish chapter 5 is very entertained until now, is funny but is like a movie. Is like I'm "reading a movie". That makes sense?

Yup Yoly, it sure does. I like it quite a bit myself and I love the way you put it about "reading a movie".

Can't wait to keep going!


Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments Hey Ally, when you get on here next you need to move this the "currently reading" folder hon! :-)


message 28: by Ally (new) - rated it 2 stars

Ally (arhart) | 443 comments Hi guys! And thank you for the congratulations!

I finished Chapter Five as well. I love the way you phrased that as well, Yoly - it IS like reading a movie! The language is conversational and the writing is filled with imagery. Considering how popular the movie for this book is, I'm really excited to watch it after!

Some thoughts:

Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments I loved all your spoiler points Ally! I'm a bit worried about Henri as well. Can't wait to see how it all progresses. So glad we are reading this!

Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments Ok, I absolutely HATE being confused! Has anyone else reached page 84 in chapter 8 yet?

(view spoiler)

Um, btw, I LOVE this book!


message 31: by Yoly (new) - rated it 4 stars

Yoly | 696 comments Im worry about Henry too.

I´m in chapter 15.

I found this in wikipedia: Lorien Legacies is a series of young adult science fiction books, written by James Frey and Jobie Hughes under the collective pseudonym Pittacus Lore.

(view spoiler)

I just here in my bed and turned on the TV and the movie "I am number 4" is on the air. I love both the book and I have so much curiosity that I think I will see, or maybe not. I dont know :S

Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments Anyone else making progress? I am on page 180 now. It's getting kinda intense!


Becky (booklovingcoffeeaddict) | 5093 comments I'm soooooooo worried about Henri right now. I had to put it down, I'm almost sick to my stomach with anxiety! Silly I know - but that's why I love reading!

Yoly | 696 comments I just finish yesterday, but I'm in my phone and I can't hide the spoilers. So tonight I will write my thoughts from my computer.
