Kathy | 7950 comments Please join Gisbelle, Vicki, Silvia and I for the first book in the Covenant series! :D


message 2: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Yay!! I'm excited to read this first book in the series!


message 3: by Kathy (new)

Kathy | 7950 comments Yes! It's a re-read for me, but I forgot too much of it to read Pure. So I need a refresher! :D


message 4: by Silvia (new)

Silvia Meadows (smeadows1984) | 310 comments Yay. I'm excited too. I really loved Obsidian so we'll see if this one makes me smile and burst out with comments that need many exclamation points.


message 5: by Janessa (new)

Janessa King (janessaking) | 104 comments I've been wanting to read this forever. Definitely count me in. :)


message 6: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Awesome! We'll start this one tomorrow


message 7: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Okay, starting this one tomorrow. YAY!


message 8: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Man, oh man! LOTS of action in the beginning of the story. Wow! I'm only in chapter 2, but it's full of action. Armentrout is such a good author!


message 9: by Kathy (new)

Kathy | 7950 comments Yes! I do remember that! And Aiden is a sweety! :D

Are we doing 5 chapters and then post?


message 10: by Vicki (last edited Dec 02, 2013 02:09PM) (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments That sounds good to me, but this one has been a slow read for me even though it's action packed.

My sweet best-dog-ever Buddy died this morning. :o( He was 13 years old.

I've been teaching grammar today to the freshmen. LOL Oh my, oh my! I'm "teaching" pronouns (he, she, it, ourselves, etc.) and their antecedents (the nouns those pronouns refer to). It the sentence says, "The children ate their crackers and soup, and they loved it." The pronoun "they" would refer to the antecedent "children." Some kids are so clueless they'll put the antecedent (which must be a noun or pronoun) as "ate" or "loved" or even "the." It's so frustrating! These kids begin learning nouns and pronouns in 2nd grade and by 9th they don't know anything because the teachers don't continue to teach it. In our district we have a common final and it includes 25 questions on parts of speech and sentence types, etc. Ugh...

So I got in just a little reading time today (still at work), but it still seems like a slow read. LOL


message 11: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Finished chapter 2 (don't think I'll read more until tomorrow)

So (view spoiler)


message 12: by Silvia (new)

Silvia Meadows (smeadows1984) | 310 comments Well, I started this read a little late. I only read 3 chapters today. Tomorrow will be a better day.


message 13: by Kathy (new)

Kathy | 7950 comments I have to go pick up my copy today and I'll start later! :D


message 14: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I finished ch. 3 last night, and I'm really liking it. So far it doesn't surpass the other book in this BoB. That's a pretty tall order, but it's definitely good. I'll see how it is after I've read more.

I can't do spoilers but I'll say I love how feisty Alex is, but she's gonna mess things up if she's not careful. Lol

Lea I can't stand so far!

Silvia Meadows (smeadows1984) | 310 comments Vicki, I just finished chapter 10 as well. My words "I knew it!"

Seth.... my goodness. That man sounded so freakishly hot. I hope he plays a much bigger role in this story. The story only just got interesting.

I will have to read your spoilers tomorrow. I'm not able to view them on my nook and I have to learn how to do spoiler tags.


message 18: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Silvia, it gets MUCH MORE interesting and mysterious! There is SO much that I want to say and predict and hope for! LOL

I'll post in a bit when I am able to finish through ch. 15. OMG this is getting SO good!

Well, in regards to that oracle prophesy. I think it is Aiden. But, I also think that there will be crazy twists and turns with that story. We'll see how this pans out.

Gis, I had begun this book a while back and I also felt confused and quit in the middle of Ch. 1. But since the four of us had decided to buddy read it I was determined to read it. I LOVE this book!!! It is really full of action and it isn't as confusing as it seems at first. I really do hope that you decide to finish it. I hope Kathy reads it, too. I'd love to hear both your thoughts on this one.


message 30: by Janessa (new)

Janessa King (janessaking) | 104 comments I've read 6-7 chapters so far, and it's really good. I love Alex's personality. :)

Vicki, I'm sorry to hear about Buddy. :( I had a dog about 10 years ago named Buddy too. May yours rest in peace. <3


message 31: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Awe, thank you, Janessa. He was the best dog!! I have two other dogs but none could beat him. We were really blessed when we chose him put of a litter of 12. Lol


message 32: by Silvia (new)

Silvia Meadows (smeadows1984) | 310 comments OMG. I just finished chapter 15. I don't want to call it a night, but I have to. I got work in the morning. Dang it!

WTF is going on? S o much I want to say, but I can't. I can't do spoilers on my nook. WHY?????? *crying like a baby*


message 33: by Kathy (new)

Kathy | 7950 comments I didn't get to read much yesterday and just now I'm finished with chapter 5. It seems to be coming back to me and I'm reading the spoilers too so that helps! lol!!

I don't like how the pures treat the halfs! I mean (view spoiler)

I'll read more later.


message 34: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I finished last night. I'd read the spoilers after reading the chapters I listed or you'll definitely have your reading spoiled! The story has SO much action and things happen that I really didn't want to happen! Unexpected things, too.

I of all people understand lack of reading time! Lol No worries!

I read your spoiler but won't comment as to how close or off you are. LOL

Yes, it just gets better and better, but I'm not flipped over the ending. :o(

Marcus: (view spoiler)

Okay, I realize now that this is your second read for Half-Blood since you've already rated it. LOL I'd be curious to know if you get any different meaning out of it or understand it differently or any better the second time around.
