Andy | 14623 comments That's an impressive list Vernie! I've wanted to read My Lady Jane for a long time, but I don't know if I could fit it in with school and my interviews.

I'm planning these so far I think: Insanity (Insanity #1) by Cameron Jace Hearts on the cover
King's Cage (Red Queen, #3) by Victoria Aveyard
published in feb
Bright Smoke, Cold Fire (Untitled, #1) by Rosamund Hodge
Romance novel (romeo & Juliet retelling)

Oh and this one, but I'm not sure where it would fit: Dawn Study (Soulfinders, #3) by Maria V. Snyder Maybe red cover?

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 2376 comments One of the books I want to read has a crown on the cover. A crown is a piece of jewelry right? I don't want to post it as a book with jewelry on the front if you don't think a crown is jewelry

Andy | 14623 comments I'm going to get my review for Lirael up this weekend. I've been super swamped with school and haven't had any time to write plus haven't been able to think of anything! Once I finish my lab report that should free up some brain space though :)

Exams are next week so I haven't done much reading either. I am posting my review for Dear John this weekend and @Susan I am starting Paper Princess tomorrow bc I will get it then, they were out today.. -.-
Happy reading!


message 26: by T.J. (new)

T.J. Burns | 2721 comments I will finish my buddy read for Freeks by Amanda Hocking soon, which will be an 8-pointer.

I'm also far along with The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden , but since I started last month, I won't get buddy read credit.

I'm also reading several other books on my own, like Lou Lou and Pea and the Mural Mystery by Jill Diamond and starting a new buddy read for A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire, #1) by Jessica Cluess .

Sooo, went to the bookshop today to get my copy and it hadn't arrived I guess I'll be 1 day late but I'll catch up, thank you for waiting gor me!!


Bunnita (Worth Reading It?) (bunnita) | 137 comments I finally finished Operation Prom Date (Tactics in Flirting, #1) by Cindi Madsen hopefully it will count for a full point. It's an ARC that not listed for sale yet so wasn't able to get page count


message 30: by Andy (new)

Andy | 14623 comments Finally got that review posted phew! Mickey I totally get where you're coming from I have exams coming up too so I feel like I have no time to do anything. At least I finished my lab report and this :)


message 31: by T.J. (last edited Feb 12, 2017 01:04PM) (new)

T.J. Burns | 2721 comments So, we're no longer last place! Yay, Team Twinkle!

I posted my buddy read for Freeks by Amanda Hocking -- a whopping 8 pointer! I also finished my buddy read for The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden , but since I started it last month, I will only get 1 point for it. Both were great books, by the way. I also finished Lou Lou and Pea and the Mural Mystery by Jill Diamond -- I buddy read it with my daughter. :)

Now I'm buddy reading A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire, #1) by Jessica Cluess , which will be another 8-pointer, along with Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel for my book club and Flunked (Fairy Tale Reform School, #1) by Jen Calonita with my daughter.

Still time to post, JFF BFF... But no worries, it is Just For Fun after all... :D

I just posted Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel Flunked (Fairy Tale Reform School, #1) by Jen Calonita The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden .

I still hope to finish my buddy read for A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire, #1) by Jessica Cluess , which will bring in 8 points.

Final Stretch, Team Twinkle!
