10 chapters/day?

Sounds good.


message 4: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) I finally posted on the last one. It took me forever to finish. I hope this one is better.
It should be. Dorian is nummy.

So I'm pretty sure I love Dorian so much I want to kill the Psy bitch and claim him for myself. Think that would work as an alternative ending to the story?

Sheri, your claws are showing. I would have to fight you for him. That will be interesting since I can only use my left arm. Lol

So Henry is coming out to play. He's always been the quiet one - seems like a pushover. All an act?

I thought that his wife was controlling him way back when (the comment is somewhere) but it turned out to be the Protocol I. I wonder if maybe being under it made him dislike the dynamics of their relationship?


message 10: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) I like Asahya quite a bit. and I can't wait for more of Amara.

We lost power (tornadoes) and it was out for a little over 25 hours, so I'm kinda wiped. I read through the chapters, but I'm not feeling super chatty. But I'll be back tomorrow.

I think this one will be good. :D

Carressed by Ice was my favorite. Then Slave to Sensation, then Visions of Heat and last (very last) Mine to Possess.

I think this one will beat out Slave, but I suppose it is early to call.

Having no power sucks. Glad you finally got it back. We were without power last summer after some storms for three days.

I'm looking forward to seeing what role Amara plays.

That is freaking adorable. I feel that way about Dev from Shine Foundation.

I like that Ashayna is a strong female not loaded down with issues. Although being on Ming's hit list is not a good thing. Dorian super sexy even if he can't shift. Henry is definitely not the push over we thought he was.

When I think of the Psy I think of aliens. I picture them living somewhere else...not on earth.

It's Hawke for me. I just love the guy.


message 18: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) Dev for Gwenn and Dorian for Sheri. I'm not too picky. Hawked for aarati. I'll take Judd, or this new arrow guy, or delicious kaleb.
Conclusion: stoic and dangerous.
Clearly I never grew up. :/

Well, if it's not too much, I'll take Hawke, Lucas, Riley(Ahhh!!! Rileyyyyyyyyyyy), Kaleb and Judd. The latest book is going to be about Vasic, so I'll tske him too. I guess I should put ... since there are too many hot guys in this series and only one of me. It's going to be a little crowded, but I'll manage. ;)


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

Lys (lysrowan) I called kaleb, Judd and vasic. Back off ! :P

You can take him for one day, I'll take for the next. We can surely compromise. :P

Ok. rotations. I can work with that.

I would like to get in on the rotations.

Amara is Ashayna's twin. Ming is now using her to get to Ashayna. Henry is getting really active in this one. I like seeing that he is not a robot.


message 25: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) So, I have a thing for evil twins. Just sayin'.

Collection closed. No more entries for rotations accepted!! Those who couldn't get in, sorry for your loss! ;)

Amara is definitely the evil twin! I can't imagine doing that to my sister but especial a twin. It would be like doing it to yourself.

I love the whole evil twin thing going on, too. I wish I had one :( Or maybe I could be the evil one :)

Except I wouldn't want to be evil like Amara. She's too twisted.

I can't believe Ashayna protected her!

I know. I think she kind of felt she had to, though. Since the council not only killed or rehabilitated people who broke silence or went crazy but their whole families, too.

That's what makes it so sad.

Who was the dark mind that corrupted Amara? Ming? Henry is making moves. Well, I am sad that Anthony is not the ghost.

Yay! Dorian changed!


message 34: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) I love that Ashaya pulled Amara in. She had to honor both of her selves. And I enjoyed her because she, like Judd, could see the value in silence, even if she wasn't bound by it. I like how Singh is making things less black and white as she goes along.

Today I read the short story about Nate and Tamsyn being mated. It was really cute. I recommend it.


Gwenn (idlecuriosity) wow, we all rated it 4 stars. that's neat. :D


message 36: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) I was really torn. I almost gave it three, but I couldn't, cause evil twin.

I liked the story of this one quite a bit, but there were some writing things that she started that I didn't like as much.

Those chapter headings? Not amused.


Gwenn (idlecuriosity) I feel you on the chapter headings. but such a good evil twin. focused only on her twin and herself and completely amoral and without empathy. I love her. I thought Sasha's response to her terribly amusing

I think it is the first time we all rated a book the same way. Amara will make things interesting in the future.

What are y'all reading next week?


message 39: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) If you're up to audible, we can do merits book. We could all take a thanksgiving break. Or Sheri and I can go back to our weekly switch off picks. (With others, if they want).
Thoughts?


message 40: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) This is the second time that you, me and Sheri all agreed. I just can't remember the book.

Monday will probably be the only day I know I will be reading. It is up to y'all. I will post how surgery went. I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!


Gwenn (idlecuriosity) you too Leigh! I hope your thanksgiving goes really well. pleasant food comas for everyone

We will all be thinking of you.

You never did let me know about the baths. :P Should I be wishing you comfortable couch time, or warm bubbly time? Or both?
Certainly food comas are awesome.
I am going to my grandparents. My gramma is making me sweet potatoes without ucky marshmallows (vegetarian) and my grampa is grilling fake chicken for me. :D Gram even is making me green bean casserole even though I am the only one who likes it.

I am scared of the tub since that is what caused all the trouble. I take showers. I actually would not be able to get in and out of my tub if I wanted to take one. Our tub is huge. I told my husband he thought he was getting a new shoulder for Christmas but I want new furniture. We are suppose to get it this weekend . I can't wait!

Sweet potatoes is my favorite. No marshmallows for me either. My mom is making me cranberry relish and spinach dip. Yummy! We are suppose to go to my sister-in-law's but I might just stay home, good thing she lives 5miles from the house so they will bring me some food. I'm sure I will be heavily medicated. Oh Yeah!
Alyssia enjoy yourself. Eat some fake chicken for me.

Yeah, a heavily medicated Thanksgiving sounds interesting.
We will all be thinking of you. :/ I sure hope everything goes smoothly.
Cranberry relish and spinach dip both sound delicious. I haven't been able to go to my grandparents' for Thanksgiving since highschool times, so I am so excited. So happy they moved back "close" (five hours isn't close, but it's better than thirty-two).

Evil twins and Thanksgiving.

We don't have plans. Last year me and the kids ordered pizza. I think we're actually cooking this year but we aren't going anywhere. My husband always has to work on Thanksgiving :/

Thoughts on a buddy read next week? Or skipping, or ... ?

Sorry your husband will be working. At least you have children for company?

Usually Thanksgiving is pretty boring for me. I am excited to be going to my grandparents' house this year.
I always have fun regardless (a break from school!), but this year will be AWESOME!

Just until Leigh comes back though :)

I am enjoying this series. And I always like having Leigh for buddy reads, because she generates talks with her questions. :D
