I understand. It is in no way mandatory and you can take as much time as you need. That's why we'll use the spoiler tags. :)

Wow you're quick! I'll probably start it in a couple of days after I finish Origin. Glad you liked it! Think you're gonna read the sequel?

Amy Fredlund | 190 comments I finished the first disc last night. ^_^ Starting the second one after checking out this 'The Fray' album I got from the pawn shop. :)


message 18: by Amy (new) - rated it 5 stars

Amy Fredlund | 190 comments This is an.. interesting book. There's something I sometimes don't quite like about it, but for the most part, it's pretty good. It's different. :)


Sarah | 579 comments Mod
Yep i like it so far :)


message 20: by Amy (new) - rated it 5 stars

Amy Fredlund | 190 comments ...Crap. ...Now I have to read the next one.... *Blink blink* Did I really just listen to that entire book in one day??? (Minus the first disc I listened to last night)

Haha! That's awesome! A lot of times the first books are pretty predictable and the next books get better. At least with YA trilogies.
I've barely started it...

Yeah, but unlike 'City of Bones', I enjoyed this story. It was more.. I don't know.. Up my alley? I guess. But yeah, I've already requested the second one from the library. :)

Hey, I practically forgot I even lent any to you. I think it might've been yesterday when I was at my sister's and happened to see her copy of Marley and Me that made me think "Oh yeah. I lent that to Katelyn, didn't I?" Needless to say, there's no hurry whatsoever. :) I won't be reading them again any time soon. Probably won't ever re-read Memory Keeper and I have plenty of books ahead of re-reading Marley and Me, so no worries. ^_^

Yay so I finished it and I thought it was freaking awesome and I will write more (and rate it since I can't decide between a 4 and a 5 right now) after I finish my homework... In my opinion this is the best BotM so far.


message 33: by Amy (new) - rated it 5 stars

Amy Fredlund | 190 comments I agree. Definitely the best BotM so far. ^_^

I think part of the reason I was drawn to this story is I loved Cinderella as a child but as an adult, not so much. This story was based off of it, but it was a much more awesome story. Cinder (the character) was way cooler, the story was awesome, and once I got halfway through I couldn't put it down. I really enjoyed this dystopian spin-off of the classic fairy-tale.

I agree, they shouldn't change his ethnicity/race. We need more diversity on screen!
