I will get it on my kindle on the 6th. I was very impressed by the kindle version's price (only 5€!!!). That's cheap for a new release!

For anyone that's interested, I found another short story. I didn't know about this one until today. :) It is The Little Android (Lunar Chronicles 2.5).

I'm at 20% (didn't read that much last night as I was out and then didn't do my usual staying up until the early hours reading, I actually slept instead. Who'd have thought you could do that!)

What a pickle they are already in!

Alycia (bookhound18) I'm roughly in the same place, Lynn... :) They are in quite the pickle!

I'm loving Cress' character already. (view spoiler) I'm already dreading getting to the end of this. I don't want to wait another year for the next one! Waaa lol

I'm not sure your spoiler is actually a spoiler Alycia lol However I suppose it's better to be safe than sorry :)

30% in now - Yes I'm loving Cress too. Thorne is making me smile / laugh as always. (view spoiler)

51% in - Arrrrggghhhh our lovely heroes are not very bright, (view spoiler)

It's all very entertaining but not a huge amount happening really.


Alycia (bookhound18) lol Well, I'm overly cautious I guess... ;)

Finally got my book today! But, I need to finish one of my others before starting.

Vanessa, Anima, Tullia - Have any of you started yet?


Anima Miejska | 1698 comments I'm in 15% and I will try to read some more today, but as my family is at home (as usually during the weekend LOL), I may not have that much time.

Anyway, so far it is nice to meet all the characters from the previous installments.

So I've finished.

I feel that the book was unnecessarily long with nothing really happening for more than the first half of the book. Things did pick up eventually though and I did enjoy it but I do think this was written as a set up for the next instalment rather than a story in it's own right.

The characters are great and I'm becoming really attached to them all. (view spoiler)

::waits for you all to catch up::

That's a bit of a bummer. I really prefer stories that are whole on their own, not just a set up for the next installment. Oh well. I'm sure I'll be looking forward to the next one...for a year.


Anima Miejska | 1698 comments I have finished, and I agree with Lynn. This part seems to be a lead in to the next and last installment of the series. Nevertheless, for me it was as equal fun as with previous parts. I loved it and gave it five stars, mainly due to the fact that it was to be followed by the next book (otherwise it would be rather poor as for the last in the series LOL). I also love the characters and I'm already impatient to have the next book. But well, there are so many other reads to distract me while waiting :)


Tessa | 75 comments Wow, you guys are so fast! I'm only 40% in. This book is much more longer than the first 2, but it's awesome as well. And Cress is such an entertaining character. I just want to see her out of that desert!


Alycia (bookhound18) I haven't gotten very far at all yet. Had a very busy weekend and didn't have time to read. I plan to read today! :)


Maree Berends | 17 comments I've turned the first page am am super pumped to get into this book. I have loved the last two and would be a devoted reader for life now. If the author writes anything else I will definitely read it.


Valerie (darthval) | 411 comments Not sure if I will get this in Feb, but I am looking forward to it. I love this series.


Alycia (bookhound18) Tullia wrote: "Finished Cress today. I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would, but still gave it 3 stars because I really enjoyed the ending."

I ended up stalling out about halfway through. It's just not as interesting as the other two. I'll get back to it later on when I'm in the mood for it.

That's disappointing. I haven't had a chance to start this one yet, but I was expecting it to be similar in pacing, style, etc to the first too. A fun & easy read. Hopefully getting to it soon.

Alycia (bookhound18) Ok, I'm enjoying it now! Just had to take a break for a bit until I was in the right mood for it. (view spoiler)

Alycia (bookhound18) Finished! If I'm not mistaken, there's only one book left in the series...right? I'm interested to see how they'll wrap it up. (view spoiler)

Joyce Oh man, just finished the first book two days ago. I liked it a lot. Getting the next two from the library. Can't wait to see how the story goes.

Alycia - Yes as far as I'm aware Winter is the last one (but you never know with these YA series!)


Joyce I love this series! I just got the book yesterday and can't wait to dig in! I saw that Winter isn't due till 2015, darn.


Maree Berends | 17 comments I'm so close to finishing this book. Loving the whole book!
