I hope the schedule we've got up works for you! It took us several messages to get it all ironed out!


message 12: by Pallavi (new)

Pallavi | 86 comments it's perfect!

Pallavi | 86 comments Is there a way to save this page? I have to constantly check the folder for any new messages. And my notifications are so many that it becomes difficult to keep track of one particular thread.

The only way to do it is to bookmark the page in your browser. Goodreads can't do it. You could also make it your browser's start page...


message 15: by Pallavi (new)

Pallavi | 86 comments I bookmarked it already! Only option is to check it from time to time..Thanks though...


Heather LiteratureChick (literaturechick) Liza wants to join us.

I made it through chapter 4 last night. Had to keep thinking about who was who on the show! Interesting start though!


message 21: by Liza (new)

Liza (proseccoprincess) I will have a look at this book later.
Didn't know there was a show

Yeah, these books spun out of the the TV Show Castle, that just finished up an 8 season run this year. Ran on ABC Monday nights at 10pm Eastern, and starred Nathan Fillion (Captain Mal from Firefly, among other things) and Stana Katic (I knew her from The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice movie that ran on TNT several years ago.). Nathan Fillion played the author of this book, Richard Castle. Each of these stories seems to stem from a case shown in the season, if I remember correctly.


Heather LiteratureChick (literaturechick) You can read the books b4 seeing the tv show. It doesn't take away from it if you haven't seen the show yet.


Heather LiteratureChick (literaturechick) Starting Heat Wave right now :).


message 25: by Liza (new)

Liza (proseccoprincess) I never knew that. That will be interesting. Iv seen ads for the tv show but never watched it. The books might give me the idea to watch it

I've been reading 4 chapters a day and have finished the book today. Wasn't bad, but I won't have time to get a review up tonight. In the morning though! I kept trying to figure out what episode from season one this was based off of though!


message 27: by Liza (new)

Liza (proseccoprincess) I read two chapters yesterday. Not really gotten into it yet. Will work through more this evening

I remembered which episode it was, right before I fell asleep...


Heather LiteratureChick (literaturechick) I am in chapter 2 as well. I saw an older episode of the show on tv last night, I won't go into too many details because I know some of you haven't seen the show.


Heather LiteratureChick (literaturechick) Trea wrote: "I remembered which episode it was, right before I fell asleep..."

I hope that I will remember the episode as I am reading the book as well.


Heather LiteratureChick (literaturechick) On page 167. I know Trea finished, but where is everybody else at? Part on bottom of page 153/top of page 154 stands out to me. I will probably be done tonight.

Heather LiteratureChick (literaturechick) Nikki Heat Books I have completed for Buddy Read:

Heat Wave (Nikki Heat, #1) by Richard Castle - FROM 2/8/2016 - 7/8/2016.

Next to start Naked Heat (Nikki Heat, #2) by Richard Castle on Aug 14th.


Heather LiteratureChick (literaturechick) Has everyone read book 1 Heat Wave? I want to mention a quote.

I have.


Heather LiteratureChick (literaturechick) Here is the quote from page 153/154 of Heat Wave....... (view spoiler)


Heather LiteratureChick (literaturechick) I feel like they took little bits from different episodes and incorporated them into this book. (view spoiler)

I agree! That same exact thought struck me as I finished the book!

I'll be starting it in a bit, reading 5-6 chapters a day again. However, I think you and I are the only ones reading the books...


Heather LiteratureChick (literaturechick) That's ok if it's just us 2. Sometimes other people can't get into a certain book. I am going to ask if anyone wants to do a buddy read of the Crossfire series by Sylvia Day starting in September .


Heather LiteratureChick (literaturechick) So I guess we don't need to use spoiler tags once you and I are done each book.

Yeah, it looks that way...Liza was reading the first couple of chapters of the first book, but I don't think she finished it. Pallavi never checked in at all. I say we just type our posts as is and only use spoilers if we're talking about something as we read it.

Liza (proseccoprincess) Sorry girls. I just couldn't get into it. :(

They're doing the "take pieces of different episodes of the season" thing again! I'm at the start of Chapter 6, heading through the end of Chapter 8 today...and I like how they're weaving it all together this time.

Pallavi | 86 comments I finished the book. I kinda liked it. I started with the book 2

Glad you are still with us Pallavi :). I think you will find that you will enjoy the books more now that you have got a start made. You should check out the tv show Castle :).

I finished this one back on the 18th, and I rather liked it. I especially liked how the article impacted things with the detectives at the 20th for Rook. I found it kinda fun to puzzle out what episode was being referred to at different points in the book.

I have stepped into playing SSS as a backup player, so it may take me a bit to get to this one, as I'm going for a J.D. Robb to fit.

Pallavi, I don't know where you are in the series, but it looks like Heather BOOKLVR24/7 has abandoned the Finish What You Started and left the group outright. Since there hasn't been much chatter about the books overall, I'm going to ask that the thread be archived and we're free to read these whenever and however we each wish.
