Trisha | 31440 comments AH!! No! but I've been dying to!!! I totally forgot about it in the midst of all these series and new releases! LOL!


Kathy | 7950 comments OMG! It's SOOOOO good! Very disturbing! But so good! lol!

Like how I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent, #1) by Barry Lyga was crazy!! It's like that, only without a serial killer! lol!! :D

Trisha | 31440 comments Yay I can't wait!!

This is the last book I need for our 2 month challenge that ends in may! LOL!

I'll start updating tomorrow :)


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments My copy just arrived at my library so I will be able to pick it up tomorrow! I have NO idea what this book is about. LOL


Kathy | 7950 comments I bought my daughter a copy a long time ago! lol!
So I think the 2 month reading challenge is a good reason to read it! And reading it with my buddies too! :D

I work tomorrow 12 to 6 and probably won't get much reading done. I will start either tomorrow or Sat.

I'm just pretty sure it's about survival and I like those kind of books. I hope we like this one :)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments That's too funny. Lol I had a long day at work and went out to eat with my hubby afterwards, so I'll get my book and start tomorrow.

Trisha | 31440 comments OMG this one is a very fast read.

20 chapters in

So, small confession - I'm an awful flyer. AWFUL
I have to be drugged so much I can barely function once off the plane - I just need to sleep.

which means, this book is really scary for me lol

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I'm not a good flyer either and I haven't flown in years, so I'll probably be a basket case after reading this when I fly to Hawaii, huh? Lol

Trisha | 31440 comments I went after I took an eight our flight to New york in the middle of the night and pretty much panicked the whole flight.

lol when I went to fly to Costa Rica, I went to my doctor and they gave me some antianxiety medication.
I also still take the motion sickness stuff.... so I'm in sleepy happy heaven when I fly now :)
