message 1: by Katie (new)

Katie | 2012 comments Trisha and I will be reading this. Anyone may join.


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I'm in on this one!


message 3: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments Yay! Welcome Vicki!


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Thanks, Trisha. :o)


message 5: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments hmmm...can we kick this date out a week or so?? My copy still shows "on order" and isn't in yet.....


message 6: by Katie (new)

Katie | 2012 comments I think I'm going to have to go ahead and read it on the date because I'm trying to read all the books that I have buddy reads scheduled for while I'm home on break. Otherwise, I would be okay with starting later, but I'm trying to read it over break and read it for a March reading contest thing.


message 7: by Katie (new)

Katie | 2012 comments I'm fine with you two pushing the date back though, of course. I'll just probably come and comment early then.


message 8: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments oh shucks. Sorry Katie. Darn it, I will have the other one in time just not this one - but I will keep an eye on when they send it! hopefully it will be soon! :)


message 9: by Katie (new)

Katie | 2012 comments That's alright. It's no big deal. I just want to read all these books over break. If it wasn't for that, I'd push back the date.


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Trisha, I would like to kick it out too. I'm still way behind.

I hope you don't mind if I read it later, Katie.


message 11: by Katie (new)

Katie | 2012 comments I don't mind at all. I'll just comment and be back to discuss later.


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Oh good. Thank you, Katie. :)


message 13: by Katie (new)

Katie | 2012 comments I will still be reading this earlier, but I haven't started it yet. It will be my next read after the one I'm currently reading.


message 14: by Katie (new)

Katie | 2012 comments I read the first 10 chapters. I like it so far, and I'm finding it much easier to get into than the author's other book that I read.

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Oh good! Glad you like it so far!


message 16: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments so my copy has updated and says "in process"
hopefully they will ship it to me any day!!


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Yay!!


message 18: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments Yes, I have it! I hope to start tomorrow!!


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I am so far behind it's like I'm TRYING to crawl out of an abyss. If you look at how many books I've read all month, you'll see how busy I've been at work. LOL Now that yearbook is done, I should START to catch up. I'll try getting to this one tomorrow or the next day.


message 20: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments No worries vicki!! I think we've ALL fallen behind (except Katie and Amanda! LOL they are on top of their books!)


message 21: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments are you guys interested in rescheduling this one for late may or middle june??


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I definitely would like to do that, Trisha! Either late May or mid June works for me.


message 23: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments any time this week that works best??
I have the book but I think it's due back very soon....


message 24: by Vicki (last edited May 24, 2016 01:38AM) (new) - rated it 3 stars

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I own the book so let me know when you want to read it. I'm open.
If starting today (now Tuesday) works for you, depending on how soon it is due back we could read 10 chapters a day? That would give us an ending day of this Sunday. Of course, as always, if we get into it and have the time we can always read more than the scheduled plan. I think this would be doable for me this week, even though it's finals week.

Ch. 1-10 Pg. 1-74
Ch. 2-20 Pg. 75-147
Ch. 21-30 Pg. 148-232
Ch. 31-40 Pg. 233-307
Ch. 41-50 Pg. 308-377
Ch. 51-62 Pg. 378-456

Trisha | 31440 comments is it okay if we start tomorrow??


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Of course. I've already read about 30 pages and I'm really enjoying it so far! I'll wait to post until I've read 10 chapters.
