Trisha | 31440 comments Anna and I!
Please join us if you can!


Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna) I haven't done a buddy read in a while, and now I'm so excited to be doing a couple of them this month! :)

Trisha | 31440 comments Yay! I'm glad we're giving these a shot!

seriously though, the baby doll cover creeps me out! I can't wait to read it!
I like the other cover - Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge
but it's not disturbing like this one!

lol! where did you spot this one?


Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna) I found it at Barnes & Noble last year, but I didn't get to read it! So now I'm excited to finally get to. :)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I agree with you, Trisha. The cover we're reading or that we have at the top of this thread is creepy! I ordered mine from the library and they show the cover at top. They have it in stock, too!


Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna) I have the creepy cover, and it's right next to my bed (so I wake up to it every morning!). I actually like the creepy cover more though, so it's okay. :)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments LOL That's too funny, Anna. I don't think I'd want it right next to my bed. No thank you!

Trisha | 31440 comments OMG I could never sleep with that cover next to me!!
lol

You are a brave soul, Anna!

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I'm with you, Trisha! Lol


Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna) I just finished my other book, so I'm all set to start reading (after I actually sleep for a couple of hours, lol).


Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna) This should be an interesting horror read because it apparently isn't so much scary as it is psychologically creepy. :)


message 13: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments omg the cover still creeps me out! LOL

I'm starting now (since it's almost 11:30 at night for me!)

fingers crossed we love it!

it looks like we have 43 chapters so plan to come back every 10 :)


Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna) Awesome! I didn't have a lot of time to read today, so I only got to chapter three. I can already tell that this is a book that I'll want to read at a slower pace though. :)


message 15: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna) Finished! I went into this book with high expectations, and was ultimately disappointed.

I think that I should have read this book faster. (view spoiler)

I do agree with you about Violet, (view spoiler)

The watch ultimately disappointed me and was good all at the same time. (view spoiler)

So, while this book isn't one that would be considered a favorite, it wasn't terrible either. 2.5 Stars.

Trisha | 31440 comments Oh man, I completely agree with you!

but I don't know(view spoiler)

Yay!! I'm so glad you finished it and didn't hate it!! :D


Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna) Ya, (view spoiler)

I'm glad that we didn't hate it either. :)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Sorry girls but I've decided to forego this one since I have SO many books to catch up on and this one isn't at the top of my list. I hope you understand.


message 31: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments Yeah, no worries Vicki!!


message 32: by Vicki (new) - added it

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Thanks! At this point I need to pick and choose because of my library being closed until Dec. 8. The other library isn't too far away but I really don't want to be owing books to three different places, you know?


Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna) It's totally fine, Vicki! Desperate times call for desperate measures. :)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Haha that's right, Anna. Lol
