Sunday I am reading this (12/13/2015): Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1) by Marissa Meyer

Joycedale, if you haven't already read this: Hidden Wings (Hidden Wings, #1) by Cameo Renae
then I will be starting on it on Tuesday (12/15/2015). If you are reading it now then let me know where your thread is for the buddy read and I will start it now instead. =]

Marybeth, I plan on starting on this: Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1) by Laini Taylor

Ok. I have a copy of it now but i haven't done much reading with it so i can send it back to my Overdrive account and hopefully get it later. :)

♛Vanessa♛ ϟ Novel Nerd Faction (novelnerdfaction) | 68 comments Delitealex, I've just finished several over the past week and a half. I finished Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children: The Graphic Novel on 12/03, Batgirl, Vol. 1: The Darkest Reflection and Star Trek: The Next Generation / Doctor Who: Assimilation2, Volume 1 on 12/04, Batman: Knightfall, Vol. 1 (which is gigantic and took forever to read, hehe) on 12/10, and The Alchemist: A Graphic Novel on 12/11. I have a bunch more to read, but I need to catch up on my novels now. =P I am excited to read the Parasol Protectorate series. How are you liking it?

Joycedale, I posted on the Buddy Read thread. I am all set to start on Tuesday. =]

Marybeth, did you send it back already or do you still have a copy? I didn't get to start Six of Crows on the 11th like I planned. If you have it we can read it together now. If you don't then we can plan a buddy read for later in the month if you'd like. =]

Sounds like you read a lot of graphic novels. I have [book:Batgirl, Vol. 1: The Darkest Reflection
that I need to read. I didn't know Peculiar children had a graphic novel. I love the Parasol Protectorate series Changeless was even better than Soulless.

I still have it. Do you want to start it earlier this week? I have a book that I need to finish tomorrow and another by Friday so I should be able to start it anytime. :)


message 25: by ♛Vanessa♛ (new)

♛Vanessa♛ ϟ Novel Nerd Faction (novelnerdfaction) | 68 comments Delitealex, you should definitely read Batgirl, Vol. 1: The Darkest Reflection! I thought it was great! I love Batgirl (and Batman & Batwoman) so maybe I'm biased. =P I didn't know that they had a graphic novel for Miss Peregrine either. I haven't read the novels yet, but now I MUST! They have been on my to be read list, and I am planning on reading them in 2016 for a series challenge.

Marybeth, sure! Just pick a day and I can start it whichever day you'd like. Start a buddy read post if you want, or just let me know which day and I can post it. =]

♛Vanessa♛ ϟ Novel Nerd Faction (novelnerdfaction) | 68 comments Joycedale, is it just that I don't see them, or are there no discussion posts for BOTM/SOTM? I think that I may have been discussing Illuminae on the wrong post.

♛Vanessa♛ ϟ Novel Nerd Faction (novelnerdfaction) | 68 comments Sorry for being MIA for the last week. My husband forgot to pay the internet bill so we've been without until yesterday evening. I've been going through internet withdrawal, but at least I got to read a grip of books the past week and a half. I am updating my books read now. I hope that all of you have a great New Year!
