Laura | 2142 comments Enjoy your books this month. Great list. You do a great job keeping up with all the group reads you run.

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 10509 comments Mod
Thanks, Laura! Those are my best reads.


message 4: by Jonetta (new)

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 10509 comments Mod
I'm about 1/3 of the way through. Extremely interesting but disturbing.

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 10509 comments Mod
I'm not liking Herta at all.

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 10509 comments Mod
Already you can see she lacks a soul.


message 7: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1630 comments I first read "Pursuing Lord Pascal" as "Pursuing Lord RASCAL", lol. You have a great list as usual. I think I'm going to wait until the sixth (and last) Graveyard Queen book comes out in another few months and then read the final three books. That way I can read them in one go.


message 8: by Jonetta (new)

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 10509 comments Mod
Thanks, Veronica! I was going to wait on The Sinner but two of my friends just raved about it so I got the audiobook for review now:)

"Lord Rascal"...maybe that would have been fun:)


message 9: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1630 comments I look forward to seeing your review on it, Jonetta. I read the book blurb on it and I'm concerned that it sounds an awful lot like the plot for the second book.

Tracey (trakka) | 1363 comments Hope you get to Home this month. Looking forward to hearing what you think.


message 11: by Jonetta (new)

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 10509 comments Mod

message 12: by Mary Beth (new)

Mary Beth  | 974 comments I want to read The Sinner and Sting next month. I hear they are both really good. I am hoping I might be able to fit Sting in this month. I am waiting for the ebook to come in from the library on Overdrive.


message 13: by Jonetta (new)

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 10509 comments Mod
I'm hoping to fit them all in, too!

It was, Lauren. I'm almost done and now it's interesting. Should be done by tonight and have lots to discuss. My apology for taking so long.

So many love this series but this was 17 hours and 6 minutes I'd like back.


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2440 comments yikes!!! Yeah I'm definitely going to pass as I agreed with all your reviews :)

I am SO glad I do other things while listening. In this case, it was cleaning the apartment and painting a wall.

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 10509 comments Mod
I normally do, too, Lauren. But, I got so behind in another buddy listen that I found myself out of tasks and having to just sit and listen to the last 2 1/2 hours, though they were the best.
