Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 48405 comments Mod
Ah awesome :) Yeah I also need to try and get through Heir of Fire sometime this month but I won't be able to count that OR ACOTAR seeing as I've started them already.


message 27: by Andy (last edited Jul 29, 2016 08:47PM) (new)

Andy | 14687 comments Maddison- I hope you love ACOTAR, the sequel is even more amazing!!!

113 is the title we'll start with. :)


message 28: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 48405 comments Mod
So they'll give us a title and author that is number 113?

I loved Red Queen! Hope you like it! I'm reading the novellas and the second one starting tomorrow. I can try and read ACOMAF with you Courtney, if you like? Just not sure when I'll get ACOTAR done, and when I'll get ACOMAF from the library.

I could also possibly read Firefight (Steelheart #2) if you get to it.


message 38: by Andy (new)

Andy | 14687 comments Hey guys! The first puzzle is up on the review thread :D After you finish a book, you should try to take a guess on the puzzle since you can! I'm going to research some possibilities right now. Also the first book I'll be reading is The Sword of Summer so I'll probably guess S and then a vowel for my buddy read guess.


message 39: by Danii (new)

Danii (itsdanii) | 985 comments My first book will be The Fiery Heart (:


message 40: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 48405 comments Mod
I'm reading Cruel Crown, so I'll guess C I suppose. Do I just post on the Review thread which letter I'm guessing? Or do I need to guess a specific spot?


message 41: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 48405 comments Mod
And what is a bonus letter? I checked on the review thread and they want us to post that too?

You post your guess on the review thread when you post your review.

Bonus letter is what you get when you do a buddy read. It can be any letter you like.


message 44: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 48405 comments Mod
Oh wow so if the book I read is a buddy read from this group then we can guess any letter? Awesome! But I'm not even sure if I'm reading any BRs in this group haha.


message 45: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 48405 comments Mod
So these are my books for this month if anyone wants to BR them so we can both guess bonus letters :p

The Rose and The Dagger be Renee Ahdieh
