We are starting today? Really? Comes unexpected.. LOL
How many chapters are we reading per day? I'd suggest 3 for both Uglies and Bloodlines for now, so we'll have 6 chapters/day.
And after next week we can read a little bit more, if you want to! :)

Alright, so when do you want to start :)?


message 3: by Jasmin, Cookie Monster :) (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jasmin (sakuchu) | 964 comments Mod
Alright, just tell me when you start :) (since I already have all books both Uglies series and the first of Bloodlines.) For Bloodlines: I think I already read ~5 chapters in January, do you want to join me when you read the first 5 or should I re-read them?

@Hannah: Actually I'm not sure if I can do 3.. LOL, but I'll try and for me it's an re-read anyway (I read it last year around the same time), so if I get behind way too much I can still consider simply skipping some pages. (Since I still pretty much know what happened, but read it for the challenge lol)

And we can decide on a new pace next week. We can just check how many chapters are left for the whole series and then decide how many chapters we have to read to finish the whole series this month. What do you think? :)


message 7: by Jasmin, Cookie Monster :) (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jasmin (sakuchu) | 964 comments Mod
Yes :) (you want to read 3 for Bloodlines, too?)
And just asking.. When you write "Tonight"( see above lol) do you mean Tonight as in 8th or Tonight as in 9th? Just not sure what your timezone is :) (I live In Germany)


message 8: by Jasmin, Cookie Monster :) (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jasmin (sakuchu) | 964 comments Mod
Ok since I'm apparantly ~6 hours ahead of you, I think we can say 9th lol
We can do 3 for Bloodlines too :) So I'll only have to read 1 Chapter tomorrow and after Tuesday, I'll have a little bit more time to spare again.. (The worst days will be today and tomorrow!) If you want to we can also start reading like 5 chapters a day for both series starting Tuesday :) (Learning just one subject instead of 4 will be totally relaxing! LOL)

Just to make an example for a possible schedule:

January 9th: Chapters 1-3
January 10th: Chapter 4-6
January 11th: Chapter 7-10
January 12th: Chapter 11-15
January 13th: Chapter 16-20

and so on.. (not sure how many chapters there are)

Uglies has so many chapters?! o.O I didn't remember it being so long, last time I read it, it took me just a few days lol


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 2509 comments Ok so the schedule's 3 chapters a day? Or are we reading more because of the amount of chapters? And yeah I love short chapters!


message 13: by Jasmin, Cookie Monster :) (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jasmin (sakuchu) | 964 comments Mod
@Maddison: We'll go with 3 chapters/day for the first 3 days and then read 5. I'd suggest we check back on the 16th, how many chapters we have to read per day to finish the whole series this month. You might want to check my schedule (see above) for the start.

@Hannah: Short chapters make buddy reads look like they take forever lol


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 2509 comments Alright. So until the 12th we read 3 chapters per day and then from the 13th onward we read 5 chapters?


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 2509 comments And on the schedule you said January when you meant February haha.


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 2509 comments Yeah but then it's not stressful haha.


message 17: by Jasmin, Cookie Monster :) (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jasmin (sakuchu) | 964 comments Mod
Yeah, it should be February lol (Time surely flies! haha)


Steph | 41 comments Is it too late to jump in on this? I started this book today actually.


Steph | 41 comments I've never done a group read...lol, I just thought it was crazy I stumbled across this one the same day I started this book. So forgive me if I have no clue how they even work haha.


Steph | 41 comments So where is everyone at currently? I just hit pg 136, my stopping point for tonight :)

Jasmin (sakuchu) | 964 comments Mod
I think we last read the Chapter Shay appeared for the first time in, right?


message 22: by Jasmin, Cookie Monster :) (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jasmin (sakuchu) | 964 comments Mod
Yeah, I always get confused lol
Lately I've simply started to count the chapters I read. (like if I have to read 5 I count till 5 and stop lol)


Steph | 41 comments Lol, well...I accidentally stayed up until 3am last night reading. I know I said I was done at 136 but every time I laid down and tried to sleep, I wanted to read more....so. I'm at like 250 now. Oops. Today should be fun at work, book induced insomnia! I swear, it's a real thing. Lol

Jasmin (sakuchu) | 964 comments Mod
Is there something like accidentally staying up? Isnt it always more like constantly checking the time but not wanting to stop? :)

Maybe if you can wait you might be able to join us for pretties lol

Steph | 41 comments Lol, I purposely avoid looking at the time. It's my boyfriend who kept rolling over and asking what time it was and why I was still up. My response, "Go back to sleep, I'm reading, I'll stop in a minute".

But I almost never do.

Now back to topic:
What did you think about the story so far, Hannah?
(view spoiler)

I'll start with Chapter 4 now! :)


message 27: by Jasmin, Cookie Monster :) (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jasmin (sakuchu) | 964 comments Mod
Chapter 4-6
(view spoiler)

Do you know that a buddy read that is a re-read is actually not really fun, if I'm the only one posting my opinion? (LOL) Just realised that it's pretty hard to have an unbiased opinion, when you know how the story continues O.O

Jasmin (sakuchu) | 964 comments Mod
I actually already finished Chapter 10(Fight) now lol
But I like Uglies so far, even though there is nothing happening yet. :)


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 2509 comments Still not started.

Hannah, I don't want to spoiler you, but I think it's nothing big, so I'll simply say it (it's only a small comment regarding Shay, but if you rather die than know then don't check the spoiler box lol)

Maybe you'll be able to catch up.


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 2509 comments I can't haha. I have books to read for other challenges then I need to read a due library book. Then I'll finish Beautiful Creatures and read Uglies.


message 41: by Jasmin, Cookie Monster :) (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jasmin (sakuchu) | 964 comments Mod
Yeah, I definitely want to finish both Uglies and Beautiful Creatures this month! (But I probably won't do a buddy read for beautiful creatures since the participation is really horrible in Book 1 lol)

Why are you helping our enemy!? *shocked* LOL (Just a joke ^^; saying that for those that are slow on understanding/seeing jokes and might be offended :) )

You read so much today! Damn lol
But I'll try to catch up and the schedule seems alright.. Actually I'd have prefered to read half a part a day, but well.. I have to hurry, right? lol


message 45: by Jasmin, Cookie Monster :) (new) - rated it 4 stars

When I read half a part a day and one part on the last, I'll be finished on the 28th!! XD

Its because she looooves me lol.
Noone in my team is buddy reading this. They're are just starting one for Bloodlines 2day and I've already made it through 3 of them, plan to finish the last one 2day or tomorrow because I have to get it back to the library tuesday (there's 3 holds on it)
I like buddy reads but the only one I found is Beautiful Creatures which I've already read.
