Hello dearies:D

This topic is about our suggestions for the December Book Readalong. If you are not finished with The Knife of Never Letting Go, no worries. We will wait. I just want us to start from the 1st of December so I am doing it today. The poll will be up tomorrow.

My suggestions are Magonia, The Sword of Summer and Made You Up:)


message 2: by Laura (new)

Laura (lanakilah) I like those! My suggestions are:

Wonder (it's supposed to be super cute?)
Mosquitoland

And basically any stand-alone... I have 3 books on my tbr-december list already :(

It's good but I don't think it has a point to recommend a second book in a series when some haven't even read the first:(

The poll is on the group page, you can find it


message 11: by Laura (new)

Laura (lanakilah) Yeah that's true... so many good choices omg!

Mary ♥ (sortofafairytale) | 593 comments Mod
xD Choose your fave!! The poll is here. Tbh I may change my vote 'cause I don't like voting my choice. it would be more fun if each of us voted for someone else's choice xD


message 13: by Mary ♥ (new)

Mary ♥ (sortofafairytale) | 593 comments Mod
For your information, Cinder has 3 votes already!! It may be the winner but we'll see.


message 14: by Alesandra (new)

Alesandra (buyanearthquake) | 80 comments How long will the poll be up?


message 15: by Ammee (new)

Ammee (simplyammee) | 13 comments hey guys! (I know I'm not very active, college is kicking my butt).
does anyone think we can have a random discussion for things totally unrelated to the book? I wanted to share that Magonia is only $1.99 on Amazon right now(which would be cool if that was our book).

Elisa The-Bookie-Monster (the-bookie-monster) | 135 comments Really hoping for Cinder as it's been on my TBR for-freaking-ever, and also Winter came out so I can just binge the whole series, although I really shouldn't buy more books before Christmas especially after my last haul...


message 18: by Mary ♥ (new)

Mary ♥ (sortofafairytale) | 593 comments Mod
XD You can vote, guys!!
And...It's okay, we will see which will be our book. Btw, I own an ebook of Magonia already:D
I am OBSESSED to read this book


message 19: by Alesandra (last edited Nov 25, 2015 09:18AM) (new)

Alesandra (buyanearthquake) | 80 comments Wow I want to read Winter so bad...and well...it's winter so it'd be perfect. If our book this month is Cinder, maybe we'll find some other people here who have read the series so that we could read winter together (parallel to the Cinder read-along...I hope I'm not confusing!) We'll see ;)
The Lunar Chronicles are so awesome!

Laura (lanakilah) Nice! I've already read the top 2 though hahaha and recently... not sure if I've written a review about Cinder, I can re-read it again and write one :)

By the way guys, I will be a bit behind this month due to the fact that I will be in a book bying ban till 15 of December because of my winter exams but then, I will buy my copy of Cinder and read really quickly so no worries:)
I will participate in the discussions, though because I will read from the eBook too

message 27: by Ehlana (new)

Ehlana (candyylanaa) | 74 comments I read Magnoia and it's really good!!! Oh my god..I recommend everyone read it~ :) but for what I was thinking for December would be that Holmes and Stroker series the clockwork scarab is the first one~


message 28: by Alesandra (new)

Alesandra (buyanearthquake) | 80 comments The poll for the December book is already up and running. It's on the groups main page at the bottom. But feel free to suggest this for January!

Elisa The-Bookie-Monster (the-bookie-monster) | 135 comments Yay! I'm super excited to start Cinder. Is anyone else participating in LadyBookMad's read women month?


message 37: by Kami (new)

Kami (kalicu) | 187 comments Mod
I'll be doing Manda's #ReadWomen! And I'll make the reading schedule!


message 38: by Mary ♥ (new)

Mary ♥ (sortofafairytale) | 593 comments Mod
I was thinking of doing it but I decided not to tbh


message 39: by Alesandra (new)

Alesandra (buyanearthquake) | 80 comments I have read Cinder too, so maybe I'll join you in reading Magonia, if that's okay ;)

It's pretty okay but we'll start at 10 of December


message 43: by Alesandra (new)

Alesandra (buyanearthquake) | 80 comments Anytime is great, I just bought it (still ridiculously cheap on amazon! As are many other books, you should check it out. Lux is for free and Snow Like Ashes and many more are like 1,30...)


message 44: by Ehlana (new)

Ehlana (candyylanaa) | 74 comments Hey guys~ I have read the top three books we are going to do for the talk for December. But I haven't read the Lux series that is the alien one right? But I'll still participate because they are all great books!!!
