Hey guys!

This is where we can dive straight into the book of the month, leave our thoughts, views and feedback as we read through! This will contain spoilers as we all like to rant about books, so if you do not want any of the books spoilt for you then please leave your thoughts until you've finished reading so you can join in the discussion!

We'd love to hear what you guys think of each monthly book and we'd all love to hear how much you either loved or hated it! All thoughts welcome and will help us pick books in the future for the polls!

Happy reading everyone!

The Secret Life Of Bookworms xx

Well, I already read it a while ago, but it's been so long that I don't remember a lot of it. So I would start it if I knew where it was. -_- Unfortunately, I'm in the process of moving [a very long, drawn-out process xD] and it's in a box somewhere in the other house out of state. ~sighs~ If I can find it next time I'm over there, I'll read it then.

By the way, it's technically still the 29th of February.
Happy Leap Year!

Yes it's still the 29th here in England still but where some of you live it's the 1st!! Hehe.

Ah I see, well let's hope that you can find it again! If you can't, then not to worry as there are always other books you can choose from the previous poll if you'd like?

Lol, yeah, that's true. I'll probably remember it when y'all start talking about it. Although, it would be good to have a refresher, anyway, since I never got around to reading the sequels.

I'm terrible at that, always starting trilogies/series and never finishing them xD

Cool, you live in Australia? Whereabouts? I have a friend who lives near Adelaide. We met, like, forever ago on my favorite author's blog and have been friends ever since :]

Wow, I had no idea you lived in England! How about that. Here we three are from three different countries, talking about reading the same book.

I love books. They bring people together.

Awesome! Well, I'm glad to know you :D
I live in Louisiana
It must be early there, right? My friend always gets up late so I rarely see him online at this time, lol. Good morning! It's about 3 in the afternoon here.

Lol, yeah, I've heard of England's notoriously cold and rainy weather. I'll certainly take the rainy part ;]
I'll even take the cold part, lol. I live in Louisiana where it's usually very hot and very humid. At the moment, it's 74 degrees. Spring has sprung down south.

Really, though, the weather could never make up its mind this year, and there were trees blooming off and on all throughout "winter." I think they were really confused.

David, me too!! It is seriously such a good series and I really do not blame you for wanting the second as mine has just turned up in the post today ;)

Lynell, it's an amazing trilogy! The books are just so magical, do you think the second is as good as the first?

Rachel, Yay! Hopefully you will enjoy this months read :D


message 38: by Lynell (new)

Lynell Burkholder (nellagainsttheworld) Holly the second one was just as good as the first one and I just bought and started the third last night,, but the only thing that irritated me was the way Mal treated Alina.. I don't wanna spoil anything if you haven't read it yet but sometimes I had almost wished she would've went with the Darkling

Oh wow! I seriously cannot wait to read it then...I'm planning to start the second book on Sunday and I will be jumping up and down with excitment until then! Hmm, I hope the second book doesn't put me off of Mal as I really liked him in the first book, but the Darkling is sorta...alluring shall I say? ;)

I've read the whole trilogy and I totally understand what you mean with how Mal behaved in Siege and Storm!! I've read the series twice and quite frankly I still don't know what to make of his behavior in the sequel. But Siege and Storm is still my favorite of the whole trilogy!! I hope you enjoy Ruin and Rising! It definitely has a different tone to it than the previous books in my opinion, but it's a really good conclusion to such a fantastic series :)

You will not be disappointed with the second book Holly, Siege and Storm is by far my favorite of the whole trilogy! And although Mal definitely shows some change, I still really enjoyed reading about his character. My favorite character is also introduced, and I think you will find him charming to say the least!! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. And as for Mal vs the Darkling, I am a complete Team Darkling member over here!! He may be evil but I don't know how Alina resists his, as you said, allure. ;)
