Emma (goldguardie) | 266 comments Hey! I'm excited to get started! Here's my preliminary list of books I would like to read next month!

Sabriel by Garth Nix Sabriel (Abhorsen, #1) by Garth Nix (buddy read)

Lirael by Garth Nix Lirael (Abhorsen, #2) by Garth Nix (buddy read)

Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop Vision in Silver (The Others, #3) by Anne Bishop

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini Starcrossed (Starcrossed, #1) by Josephine Angelini (buddy read)

Kushiel's Dart by Jaqueline Carey Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey

That's my tentative list. The first two are rereads, so I have to get them OK'd in the main thread first. If I can't use them, then I might add The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson The Well of Ascension (Mistborn, #2) by Brandon Sanderson , as well as random other things if I have time. Woohoo, GO TEAM lol

Emma (goldguardie) | 266 comments Shoot, question. Am I allowed to read 2 books beginning with the same letter? Just realized I had 2 down for the letter s.

Kirsty | 1332 comments Emma wrote: "Shoot, question. Am I allowed to read 2 books beginning with the same letter? Just realized I had 2 down for the letter s."

I believe you are allowed to read two books beginning with the same letter as long as it is a letter which is allowed multiple times. So you wouldn't be allowed to read two books beginning with K as there is only 1 K tile but because it is S we are allowed up to 4 books that start with S. I hope this makes sense :)

Emma (goldguardie) | 266 comments It makes perfect sense! Thanks ahah

I'm about 65% through Starcrossed (Starcrossed, #1) by Josephine Angelini , and a third through both Sabriel (Abhorsen, #1) by Garth Nix and Vision in Silver (The Others, #3) by Anne Bishop . I'm hoping to be able to finish at least 2 of these this weekend!

message 34: by Emma (new)

Emma (goldguardie) | 266 comments Hey guys! I just finished and posted Fire Falling (Air Awakens, #2) by Elise Kova ! I'm probably going to have to add Earth's End (Air Awakens, #3) by Elise Kova in the E section because there's no way I can stop reading this series right now. That should be the last book that's different from my original list though, because the 4th book in the series doesn't come out until April. :P I'm also 3/4 of the way through Sabriel (Abhorsen, #1) by Garth Nix and should finish that within the next few days. Yahoo reading!


message 35: by Cami (new)

Cami (englishkhaleesi) | 537 comments Reading Perfect Chemistry (Perfect Chemistry, #1) by Simone Elkeles soon.


message 36: by Kim (new)

Kim (heyitskim) | 224 comments I don't think I am able to read Vanishing Girls because I can't seem to find the book at all. I will find another book to read.


message 37: by Emma (new)

Emma (goldguardie) | 266 comments I finished Sabriel (Abhorsen, #1) by Garth Nix and posted it! I'll be done with Earth's End (Air Awakens, #3) by Elise Kova by tonight or early tomorrow.


message 38: by Cami (new)

Cami (englishkhaleesi) | 537 comments Finished Marked (House of Night #1) by P.C. Cast and posting review. Will start The Mistake (Off-Campus, #2) by Elle Kennedy when I finish The Deal (Off-Campus, #1) by Elle Kennedy tomorrow.


message 39: by Emma (new)

Emma (goldguardie) | 266 comments Ok so I posted Earth's End (Air Awakens, #3) by Elise Kova and I'm going to be reading Lirael (Abhorsen, #2) by Garth Nix in the next few days, then on Wed. I'm going to start a buddy read of A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1) by Sarah J. Maas , and I'll use that for letter A! :)

Luckyreadingreviews | 307 comments Juat writing up all my reviews for the books i read during the last week Catching Whitney by Amy Hale and Aideen (Slater Brothers, #3.5) by L.A. Casey


message 44: by Emma (new)

Emma (goldguardie) | 266 comments Hey guys!

So I power-read A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1) by Sarah J. Maas , so once I get my review done I'll post it. I'm also about halfway through Lirael (Abhorsen, #2) by Garth Nix , which I'm glad I'm rereading because I remembered almost nothing of the plot (I last read it at least 10 years ago, haha), and I'm loving it just as much as I remember loving it! Once that's done, I'll probably be starting Kushiel's Dart (Phèdre's Trilogy, #1) by Jacqueline Carey and The Well of Ascension (Mistborn, #2) by Brandon Sanderson ! They're both fairly long so it should take me a bit, but I'll be reading! :)


message 45: by Kirsty (new)

Kirsty | 1332 comments I finished Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen last night and I posted my review. I am currently reading Requiem (Delirium, #3) by Lauren Oliver which shouldn't take me too long to read. Then I'll be starting either Glass Sword (Red Queen, #2) by Victoria Aveyard or I Heart Vegas (I Heart, #4) by Lindsey Kelk depending on what mood I am in.

Cami (englishkhaleesi) | 537 comments I will be finished Demonglass (Hex Hall, #2) by Rachel Hawkins and The Mistake (Off-Campus, #2) by Elle Kennedy by tomorrow.
