Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47773 comments Mod
I might read to a schedule. Will you?


message 4: by Christina (new)

Christina | 4418 comments @Maddison
I don't mind! Let's do that. How many chapters/pages a day?


message 5: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47773 comments Mod
1 chapter a day? Well how many pages is a chapter on average?


message 6: by Christina (new)

Christina | 4418 comments @Maddison
The book isn't next to me atm so I'll have a check later. Since the book is around 300 pages, maybe aim for 30-50 pages a day? (~1 hour reading)


message 7: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47773 comments Mod
Yeah 30 pages is good for me XD


message 8: by Christina (new)

Christina | 4418 comments Just checked that the chapters are about 5-6 pages long so 30 pages would be around 5 chapters a day :)

No problems. I sort of abandoned this one. I didn't feel like reading this at the time! Sorry

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47773 comments Mod
Alright. :) Want to start the date again?


message 15: by Christina (new)

Christina | 4418 comments Yes two chapters wasn't enough to totally judge the book. I still like the concept. When can you start? :)

Christina | 4418 comments Hiya Maddison
Are you on track to read this? I'm kind of falling behind on buddy reads and this one looks easily disposable Lol
I've been holding on to the library book for 1 month now haha but I haven't had the urge to pick it up :P


Tessa | 1951 comments Me and Rachel will be reading this starting 6 August. Feel free to join us! :)

Can a Mod please change the date for this? Thank you! ^^


rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments Thanks!! :)


Abbie | 27856 comments Date changed. :)


Tessa | 1951 comments So, this is funny so far, even if it is a little puerile, but after Brutal Youth I do need something funny and easy even if it does kill my brain a little XD.

Have you started reading this Rachel?

rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments Not yet. I am about to. Glad you like it. :)

rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments Really!? That doesn't sound promising!

Sorry I haven't started it yet. I got swamped with homework. I have a maths test tomorrow to study for then I will properly start it!! ;)

Ok, this is getting a little boring. Also, very unrealistic. You can't catch fish with flattening irons. The girls in the book might be stupid, but don't assume your readers are as we..."

Tessa | 1951 comments Suck then. I try to by the Paperback only for books I've already tried and know I like or if I really love the author or the recommendation I got is really, really a trustworthy one.

Meh, even so I ended up with some bad ones in my shelf, but not that many :P .

I'm surprised this one was so bad. It had so many awards :( .

I don't tend to buy paperbacks really, well not brand new ones anyway. The only time I buy books is when I go op-shopping! You get books for no more than $5 (normally about $2) and if show my student card I get a further 20% discount. This only cost me $2.50 for the hardback copy. I cannot really complain about that! :)

I agree! They seem pretty self centred and some of them come off as extremely stupid.

Rachel Gunter | 2635 comments I got to about 100 pages in and had to quit, the writing and the people just weren't for me :/ I've looked at the reviews and it seems to be a bit of a love it or hate it book. I hope you guys are enjoying it!
