message 1: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Ordered my hard copy of TBS (because as much as I love the highlight feature on my kindle its just not my favorite when wanting to keep notes for discussions) and preordered Fangirl. Very excited to get started in this group! Anyone else have their copies yet or already started?

Jolene (jolene_wsm) | 19 comments I am still looking around. English books are hard to come by here in Germany and I still like the old fashion.. page flipping and the smell of books. Still can't get use to using my ipad to read. >__<


message 3: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (jjallday) I have my copy! I'll be using my e-reader.

That's excellent - based on that, I'm even more excited to read it.

Jolene (jolene_wsm) | 19 comments I have secured my book. Thank you internet for online shopping!!!


message 9: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Mine is waiting for my at my complexes office! I have a feeling I will be getting a good start this weekend.


message 10: by Melissa (new)

Melissa *Update* I braved the 115 degree heat (that's what my car said which means it's probably only 105 degrees), and went and got my copy. It's been so long since I have bought a new *hardback* book and it smells SO good. Ready to get cozy with it. =^.^=

Already have mine downloaded but trying to finish my other reads before I dive in. Can't wait! I ♥ my ereader, but I completely agree: BOOKS SMELL WONDERFUL.

Amanda Pugh (saywithlove) | 5 comments My book hasn't arrived yet even though I ordered it a while back. Grr.


message 13: by Izzy (new)

Izzy (lepetitegeneral) I just picked it up yesterday. Planning to start on it once I finish up the other books I'm reading.

Amber (puresurplus) | 830 comments Mod
I am now almost done with it. Can't put it down!


message 15: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Pugh (saywithlove) | 5 comments I got mine today! Diving in! ;)


message 16: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (jennydecki) | 9 comments I just got the email from the library! I will pick the book up tonight and get to reading in tomorrow morning.


message 17: by Sam (new)

Sam (sammy_witch) All done! I had a problem putting this book down.


message 18: by Amber, The Founder (new)

Amber (puresurplus) | 830 comments Mod
I'm done, too! Thinking I may even re-read it before the end of the month.


message 19: by Jolene (new)

Jolene (jolene_wsm) | 19 comments I am still reading it... wow this is so hard to put down!

I haven't had a chance to pick up a copy yet, but gosh I'm excited to dive in to this once I do.


message 21: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (jennydecki) | 9 comments I am thrilled this is going to be a series.


message 22: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (jennydecki) | 9 comments Oh, and just in case this might help anyone who might be like me...there is a glossary in the back of the book!! I wish I had known at the beginning. LOL


message 23: by Amber, The Founder (new)

Amber (puresurplus) | 830 comments Mod
I know! I wish I would've known about it from the very beginning. Great tip for those of you struggling through it.


message 24: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Glad I'm only about 100 pages in so I can take advantage of that! I keep going back and referencing the maps at the beginning and going wait, where? What?


message 25: by Izzy (new)

Izzy (lepetitegeneral) I was about to come complain about being all messed up from terms and stuff. I will have to refer to the glossary now so I can try to not be as annoyed by it.

I'm intrigued at least from the beginning it seems really interesting and fast paced. Loving the writing style as well.


message 26: by Kathryn (new)

Kathryn I've heard all the hype about this book, "The new J.K. Rowling" they have been saying. I am excited to read this one. Another to add to my list of many!


message 27: by Amber, The Founder (new)

Amber (puresurplus) | 830 comments Mod
I'm always suspicious of hype in general, but this one in particular was well worth the read. I'm ready for the sequel!


message 28: by Kathryn (new)

Kathryn I feel sorry for the author. You often see this with movies when they build them up and the reviews become a lot harsher than they probably should be.


message 29: by Izzy (new)

Izzy (lepetitegeneral) Okay I just hit the interesting part! I'm kind of more hooked on the book now. We have left the sundail area in general and now moved onto other location.

Are we going to have a spoiler section for discussing the book?

Thanks ^_^ I'm almost done with the book! I will be in there to chat tonight! I think I really like this book after not feeling much for it earlier on.

No need to worry, Cher. We are a group for casual readers after all. Feel free to go at your own pace and join in the discussion when you're done. :)

Yes, that was my thought, as well. This just goes to show I haven't the time for reading that I once did, which is a touch sad ;)

Andy Serkis producing! That is super interesting.


message 40: by Kayla (new)

Kayla Beck Kalnasy (kaylabeck) | 33 comments The Bone Season is up for some awards in the Goodreads Choice Awards, but it definitely needs to be written in as "best debut"!

I've already read the sampler, and... WOW! I can't express how much I'm looking forward to this.

Lila Lockhart (lilalockhart) | 178 comments Mod
It seems like the release date for The Mime Order has been set back to January. If that's the case, we may need to look at another option for November?

Amber (puresurplus) | 830 comments Mod
Crap. I'll check and do a switch-a-roo. Thanks!


message 45: by Amber, The Founder (new)

Amber (puresurplus) | 830 comments Mod
I think I've got it settled now. We will now be reading Poison Fruit in November!
