Amanda (zmobie) | 251 comments Joycedale, thank you for picking a bonus book that I could actually find! I'm never able to find the extra book, but this one's free on Amazon. Yay!


message 7: by ☆Joycedale☆, Angel With A Shotgun (new)

☆Joycedale☆ | 1543 comments Mod
Figures it free, I paid for it on release day lol.
I'm glad it's free though, that way I know y'all can read it too.


message 8: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (zmobie) | 251 comments Haha, of course. I'll be getting a few other books out of the way today (hopefully), but if you wanted to BR that, or anything, let me know!

message 10: by Amanda (new)

message 12: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (zmobie) | 251 comments Yes, that would be great!


message 13: by ♛Vanessa♛ (new)

♛Vanessa♛ ϟ Novel Nerd Faction (novelnerdfaction) Sorry for being MIA all week. I fell down a flight of stairs last Sunday and hurt my leg. I only got to one book while I was feeling crappy, and unfortunately it wasn't a dystopian book. I have some blog tours this month that I am doing, so I will probably be reading the bonus books later in the month. I hope to be able to get the the series books as well since they've been on my TBR list for a while now. =P


message 14: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (zmobie) | 251 comments Oh no, Vanessa! I hope you're okay. Take time to heal and all that, and get back to reading when you can. :)


message 15: by ♛Vanessa♛ (new)

♛Vanessa♛ ϟ Novel Nerd Faction (novelnerdfaction) Thanks, Amanda. I am starting to feel a little better. I am just thankful that I don't need surgery.


message 16: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (zmobie) | 251 comments That's good news!

Ugh, surgery. My husband has been off of work for an arm injury, and after many appointments they finally decided he needed surgery for an elbow replacement. Joy. Not looking forward to that. He goes in for his next appointment later this week. So I haven't had as much time to read as I normally would, either, since I've been dealing with that and spending more time with him. :)


message 17: by ♛Vanessa♛ (new)

♛Vanessa♛ ϟ Novel Nerd Faction (novelnerdfaction) Oh, that sucks. I initially fell in December when it snowed and hurt my knee. I went back and forth with doctors for two months and then I went back to work February 22 and worked for a week. Then my knee that I had injured in December gave out and that is when I fell down the stairs. It just made things worse. I can't believe that the doctor still doesn't think that I need surgery. It's been a nightmare so I hope that your husband gets his done and over with and that he starts to feel better.

Wow i just saw there was new comments. I'm sorry you ladies are going through so much. I'll keep you all in my thoughts.
It also makes me feel less guilty about not having got much read lol. I've just been worn out lately so when I'm not working or dealing with family I haven't been reading either


message 19: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (zmobie) | 251 comments Thank you! Going to talk to the Surgeon and hopefully set up the surgery this Thursday. So moving right along! Just hope they don't schedule it months from now. Not that he wants the surgery, but it's gotta be done. :(

Of course none of the books I've been reading fit the genre. Going to see if I can read some more things to fit soon. :)


message 20: by ♛Vanessa♛ (new)

♛Vanessa♛ ϟ Novel Nerd Faction (novelnerdfaction) I've been a little worn out too. After I hurt my leg, I immediately got a respiratory infection that has lasted over a week. The luck of the Irish is not with me this year. =P I have read some things, but they haven't been dystopian unfortunately. =/ I plan on reading a couple of the bonus books at the end of the month though.

☆Joycedale☆ | 1543 comments Mod
I read Countdown because I swear I needed it for another challenge. Have no idea now what it was but it works for this one lol


message 22: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (zmobie) | 251 comments Haha, of course. I know I'll get a couple of dystopians read this weekend.

We can count it as a full series if only two of three books is published, right?


message 23: by ☆Joycedale☆, Angel With A Shotgun (new)

☆Joycedale☆ | 1543 comments Mod

message 24: by ♛Vanessa♛ (new)
