Brandy | 2535 comments Where we can chat about the book! :)


Books On Replay (booksonreplay) So I e never done a true buddy read. Do we just post when we want? Or do we do it every xx amount of chapters?

I typically like to post every few chapters (when I can) or when something really big and crazy happens. If it's a spoiler I like to use the < spoiler > html lingo to allow others to look when they can.

I'm so excited for you guys to read this one. I loved this series (so far) so much.

Hayley Stewart (haybop) | 15 comments I missed this thread before starting the book?!?! I actually had this down on my eReader to read on holiday and really enjoyed it - I may just watch and do non-spoilery posts in this thread then ;)


Books On Replay (booksonreplay) I'm actually really excited to see what others think too. I read about 150 pages earlier this year and was loving it. I'm glad I'm finally picking it back up!


Books On Replay (booksonreplay) Oh AND I'm really excited to finally read this series because I've been avoiding spoilers like the plague for SOOO long. So far, I haven't been spoiled, but if I wait much longer, who knows D:


Brandy | 2535 comments Ok I made it to Chapter 53 over the long weekend! Love the book so far.
Books On Replay, I have been avoiding spoilers too, but when books start getting popular it gets harder. I am glad we are doing this.

I don't really know what I was expecting but it is different. And I like it.


Brandy | 2535 comments finished, I will definitely be continuing the series!
Are you guys Team Dorian or Team Chaol? I am not sure at this point which boy I like.


Brie | 569 comments Me too! I've already gotten into Crown Of Midnight,thinking we'd continue on, but only just. I'm not sure which boy I prefer either, they both have so much at risk for a relationship with her. But I think I like Chaol as a person better, I wish he would've acted on his feelings sooner!


Brandy | 2535 comments I am going to listen to Darkfever then I will get back to Crown of Midnight. and if you haven't read the Fever series you really should! I think you would like it

Brie | 569 comments Oh is that a side series? I did'nt even check!


Brandy | 2535 comments no no no it is a totally different series but I think you would like it. little fantasy with some dark and twisted characters, our type of book.

Brie | 569 comments Oh gotcha, I'm on it!


Brandy | 2535 comments Well i just finished Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2) by Sarah J. Maas This morning! Why oh why did I wait so long to start this series?! The book also really pissed me off, (view spoiler)

I agree, why DID you wait so long! Haha there's still two more that are already out.. and two more that she's working on. This one is going to be a 6 book series.

Sure, I'll read it with you. I've been wanting to read it and it'll tide me over until the 5th book comes out.

Books On Replay (booksonreplay) I have so slacked on this buddy read! With crazy work hours and Christmas, I just haven't had time. Glad to see you all enjoyed it and sorry I didn't participate :(

I am in the middle ish of Heir of fire, I didn't realize it was such a long book. I can do either Queen of Shadows or the Assassins Blade once I am done. Let me know where you are on your availability. I received a gift card so I bought them both!!!

Books On Replay,
There is still time to catch up. :)

Books On Replay (booksonreplay) I'm not a super fast reader and you are already on the third book lol. It's no big deal. I just felt bad because I didn't participate like I said I would. It's my fault. But reading all this really encouraged me to read it. It sounds so good!

I have been doing the audio version, I have a long commute everyday and a lot of time I can listen at my desk so I have been binge listening to books.

I say finish Queen of Shadows first, that way everything is still fresh in your brain from Heir of Fire.. I can wait until you're finished and then read Assassins Blade with you.

That's alright! Everyone's going at their own pace with this buddy read. You can update as you go :)


Brandy | 2535 comments I am just finishing up Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3) by Sarah J. Maas and I am not ok with this!!!! What the H*** just happened?! I hate the king.

Yayy! I love it when I see these comments before I start a book, I just got it in this weekend and was wondering what priority order I should put it in..I'll be moving it up to say the least!


Brandy | 2535 comments I hope you have book 4 on order already!

Brie | 569 comments 10-4, the Queen is on hold as we speak!

Sara | 3890 comments Mod
I'm so sad the 5th book doesn't come out until September! Luckily I own Queen so I can maybe listen to the end for a few before starting book 5 so I don't forget anything.


Brandy | 2535 comments instead of doing actual reviews I started doing more like book reports so I can read those and remember the big things that stand out in my mind. but I also bought queen so I can listen to it again too.

I'm glad that we decided to do a buddy read so that everyone can join in and discuss the series.

Brie | 569 comments Ok, I'm starting Heir this afternoon!

Brie | 569 comments Dude. The king is dirty scandalous and needs to be knocked off that throne! Heir was so good! I can't wait for Queen to come available!!!

I have the audio version waiting on me! I will be starting soon. I can't wait to see her waltz in and kick that king's arse!

Yeah, I'm definitely joining in on the prequel. I have the book on hold currently so that it should be in (hopefully) by the time you guys finish Queen.

Glad you guys like it!

The whole series needs ominous music!


Brandy | 2535 comments So I have been listening to audio and if my boyfriend is out of the room I don't have headphones on, everytime he walks in someone is getting their head lopped off. Or they are fighting, but nothing good. lol

LOL! I felt like this with Heir when my husband would ask me how my book was going.
