DeAnna (dee84812) I'm having a hard time getting into my current read, so I may start this a little late, but I'm going to try my best!

Clary | 27 comments I started it today. I love the writing but I am really confused by the story... Hope that clears up soon. It is an intruiging read, though


Imy♥♥ (crazykindleaddict) | 50 comments Very slow start for me, as I got called into work! Damn.

Where are you up to now? You enjoying it?


message 24: by DeAnna (new) - added it

DeAnna (dee84812) I haven't gotten a chance to read again, but since you two are already finished, I think I'm going to put it on hold. After seeing The Mortal Instruments, I want to continue that series.


Imy♥♥ (crazykindleaddict) | 50 comments Ok cool, no worries :)


Tessa | 1951 comments Me and Irene will read this starting 25 July. Can a Mod please update this? :)

Irene (raenne) | 4929 comments I hpe this book will be good! :D


Tessa | 1951 comments Irene wrote: "I hpe this book will be good! :D"

It's one of my favorites. :) I'm actually re-reading this one ^^.


Tessa | 1951 comments So, have you started this book Irene? I'm actually enjoying it more the second time, because it's less confusing. :P

Chapter 7
(view spoiler)


Irene (raenne) | 4929 comments I have! Only two chapters in though. Am confused xD So many characters!


Tessa | 1951 comments Irene wrote: "I have! Only two chapters in though. Am confused xD So many characters!"

I know, it is confusing. That's why a second read is more enjoyable. Since now I know who is who ^^.

But I'm sure you'll love it :D .


Irene (raenne) | 4929 comments Thanks! That really helped clear things.
I liked that line as well!
Jessa (is that her name?) seems like a complex character! I really like the narrator as well (yeah, I'm not good with names xD)


Irene (raenne) | 4929 comments Please tell me it gets better? I'm kind of bored. Am 9 chapters in. :-)

No, no, her name is Tyler. She and Johnas are the main characters, in a way. Jessa is one of the girls in her dorm. She's going to have an important role later on.

The first time I read it I also almost dropped it. It really has a lot of characters and sometimes it's boring. I didn't understand the connection between the kids's story and the story Tyler was reading about the 5 friends.

Trust me, it gets better and better and the ending was just perfect :) .


Irene (raenne) | 4929 comments But Taylor is the main character? Jessa, the character in the background. I like her. She seems complex. The rest of the characters, I don't really care about. 12 chapters in :-D


message 37: by Tessa (last edited Jul 26, 2014 02:44AM) (new) - rated it 5 stars

Tessa | 1951 comments Yes, Taylor is the main character. I think you're talking about Rafaela, Taylor's best friend. Jessa hasn't appeared so much yet. Raffaela is the one who has something with Chaz Santangelo, the leader of the townies. And after ch 14 this is going to get onto the more romance parts :P .

I like them all, but maybe because I've read the entire book and I know all of them are super cute XD.

I'm at chapter 15 right now (in the re-read department :) ).


Irene (raenne) | 4929 comments Sorry, no, I mean Jessa. :-) I'm about to start ch 16 so it'd seem we're reading at the same pace.


Irene (raenne) | 4929 comments Okay, so I finished the book and I gotta say (view spoiler)


Irene (raenne) | 4929 comments Oh, but (view spoiler)


Tessa | 1951 comments Really? You didn't like the characters? I love them! A little less Tylor, because she was being difficult, but she did had a harsh life, in a way. Could have been worse.
Oh, I found more than one funny line. One of my favorites was when she described how Ben was answering with "Me" to any type of question or statement XD.
