Sarah (sarahlou29) | 1302 comments Is anyone interested in reading this book with me?


message 2: by Janice, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Janice (jamasc) | 48741 comments I have the book, but I don't think I could get to it next month.


Sarah (sarahlou29) | 1302 comments Any ideas when you'd like to read it?


message 4: by Kristie, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kristie | 13587 comments Same here. I was planning to read it in May with another group. I could probably get to it the end of April, if you wanted to wait that long.

Sarah (sarahlou29) | 1302 comments End of April sounds fine by me, how about the 29th April?

Gives people time to plan ahead and other reads to get done first.

Janice (jamasc) | 48741 comments Is everyone ready to start the buddy read on Friday? I have it downloaded and ready to go.


message 18: by Kristie, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kristie | 13587 comments I'm ready! I have it in my calendar and I'm looking forward to it.


Sarah (sarahlou29) | 1302 comments Yep all ready for it. If you want to start earlier I don't mind. I may start after I finish my current book I only have about 150 pages to go


message 20: by Janice, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Janice (jamasc) | 48741 comments I could start tomorrow. I should finish my current read today. Kristie, what about you?


message 21: by Kristie, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kristie | 13587 comments I just started my tribute book today and probably won't be able to start early. I need to finish this one in April, so I can't put it aside.


message 22: by Janice, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Janice (jamasc) | 48741 comments No problem, Kristie. We'll wait for you. I have another book to read.


message 23: by Kristie, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kristie | 13587 comments Thanks! :)


Sarah (sarahlou29) | 1302 comments I'm going to start tonight, but I'll make sure to keep my comments in spoilers related to the chapter =]


Sarah (sarahlou29) | 1302 comments I've only read a little bit, so I'm up to Chapter 4.

I'm liking the main character, Celeana. I'm liking her attitude, it's a nice change from the book I was just reading with a girl who got walked over. Celeana sounds like she'll be a kick-ass character, I look forward to reading more.


message 26: by Janice, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Janice (jamasc) | 48741 comments Oh good. I like kick ass characters.


message 27: by Kristie, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kristie | 13587 comments Janice, I will be starting tomorrow, if you're still ready to start then. :) If you need to finish up something else first, I can wait a couple of days too, just let me know.


message 28: by Stephanie (new) - added it

Stephanie I forgot about this book! I will eventually get to it but my reading has taken a hit lately:(


message 29: by Janice, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Janice (jamasc) | 48741 comments I will be starting tomorrow as well, Kristie. I just finished my current book. :)

I hope you still join in on the conversation when you do get to it. Even if we've finished reading it, we'll be happy to chat with you about it.

Kristie | 13587 comments Sarah - re: you're spoilers

chapter 3-4 (view spoiler)

chapter 5 (view spoiler)


message 34: by Janice, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Janice (jamasc) | 48741 comments I've read to the beginning of Chapter 15. I'm having a hard time getting a feel for Celeana's character. I think you can both read this spoiler. (view spoiler)

Maybe this book is too young for me. I'll continue on though. It's an easy read and I want to see how it all evolves. I'd like to learn more of the magic system that was destroyed and if it's going to be resurrected.


message 35: by Janice, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Janice (jamasc) | 48741 comments I'm at chapter 41. Things are getting tense. Things are heating up (view spoiler)


message 36: by Kristie, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kristie | 13587 comments I fell behind today, but plan to read a lot tomorrow and the next day. I can't wait to read your spoilers!

ch. 15 (view spoiler)


message 39: by Janice, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Janice (jamasc) | 48741 comments I finished the story, and I can see your POV, Kristie about Celeana's character. (view spoiler) Overall, I thought the story was too juvenile for my tastes. I gave it 3 stars because there were things that I liked about it - the final contest (view spoiler). It fell a bit flat for me.


Sarah (sarahlou29) | 1302 comments I'm not sure how I feel about Celeana anymore, I agree (view spoiler)

Nehemia: (I'm up to Chapter 43) (view spoiler)

Magic: (view spoiler)


message 41: by Janice, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Janice (jamasc) | 48741 comments Nehemia is my favourite character in the book! I would have liked the book better if Maas hadn't introduced so much teen angst into it.


message 42: by Kristie, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kristie | 13587 comments I'm at chapter 32 and so far I like Nehemiah. I can't read your spoilers at the moment, but I'll get back to them. I plan to read a lot tomorrow while traveling again too.


Sarah (sarahlou29) | 1302 comments Okay, I've finished, there were parts of it I liked and parts that were a bit dull. I liked the magic elements nearer the end of the book and may continue to read the next book and see if there is more magic.

(view spoiler)


message 44: by Kristie, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kristie | 13587 comments Hoping to finish today and read all the spoilers when I'm on my laptop. That's one of the things I wish you could do on the app.


Sarah (sarahlou29) | 1302 comments How's the reading coming along Kristie? Oh I know, I wish the app would allow to see spoilers.


message 46: by Kristie, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kristie | 13587 comments I finished yesterday, but was too exhausted to post!

I'm not sure how to rate this one yet. I enjoyed it, but knew who the "bad guy" was from the beginning. I think it is one that I would have enjoyed a lot more if I was younger. I do like the magic aspect and wish there had been more of that. It seems that there will be more in the future books. I think I will read the second one and see where it goes.

I hope it doesn't go into love triangle territory. It was right on that cusp this whole book and there are so many other story threads to follow.


Sarah (sarahlou29) | 1302 comments It took a little thinking to decide what to rate it myself. Yes the book was a little predictable. I hope it doesn't go full blown love triangle either, I really dislike reading that.. urgh.

Would you like to read the second one together?


message 48: by Kristie, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kristie | 13587 comments Sure :) As long as you don't mind waiting a bit. My May is crammed with reads already. One of my other groups is reading it in July, so late June or early to mid July works best for me.


Sarah (sarahlou29) | 1302 comments We'll go with when works best for you. My May is packed up too and have nothing for June or July yet, which would you prefer?


message 50: by Kristie, Moderator (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kristie | 13587 comments End of June should work. Want to say the 29th again?
