Me too! The end of January is the Chinese New Year (where we receive red packets with money from our elders), so I'm starting off February with money to buy books. Sounds good, right? :D Hopefully life will allow me some time to finish reading books in Feb.

Hey Quirks :)


message 11: by Quirks (new)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7167 comments For me, day 1 has ended. I'm 80% done with my first book. Will finish it in the morning. Pretty good start of the month for me.

So glad January is done. It sucked, for my reading.


message 12: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4553 comments I hate when the 1st is on a work day for me, ill be lucky to get to 25% into a book on work days :/ but i have the next three days off so i should get a few done :)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7167 comments Posted reviews for my first two reads. I'm starting The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds, #1) by Alexandra Bracken in a couple of hours. What's everyone else reading?

I was going to read today, but got into a crazy cleaning mood, and purged my cabinets, fridge, and pantry. But now i have to do tomorrow is laundry so reading i will be doing.

I'm reading all of these right now Sky Key (Endgame, #2) by James J. Frey Forest of Secrets (Warriors, #3) by Erin Hunter Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass, #4) by Sarah J. Maas The Master Magician (The Paper Magician Trilogy, #3) by Charlie N. Holmberg 3 out of the 4 are BRs, so i'm hoping to finish all but QofS tomorrow.


message 15: by Quirks (new)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7167 comments Thats a lot of books to finish in a day. I could never manage it.


message 16: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4553 comments Im listening to Sky Key, only have about 3hrs left, so I'll finish that pretty easily. Forest of Secrets and The Master Magician are on the short side, maybe 4hrs of reading to finish them. A cold is kicking my behind so im staying in all day today. :/


message 17: by Quirks (new)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7167 comments Hope you get better soon!


message 18: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4553 comments We are so behind and its only day 6 :(


message 19: by Quirks (new)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7167 comments We'll catch up. Hopefully. I'm gonna try to finish Darkest Minds today and post review tomorrow.


message 20: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4553 comments I feel like BRs are needed so badly, but hard for me to find ones to join or get others to agree to do reads with me. I just joined another today for a book i really don't want to read but eff it, need the points!


message 21: by Leah (new)

Leah | 2145 comments I finally did a BR for Caraval.

Worth reading? I've seen mixed reviews! i might join if you think it's worth cramming into my other BRs :)


message 23: by Leah (new)

Leah | 2145 comments I enjoyed it, but it took about 100 pages for the story to really get interesting.


message 24: by Quirks (new)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7167 comments BRs make a huge difference. Almost all my reads this month are BRs.

I have some lined up, but most of the ones on there i've already read or i'm on the hold list at the library :/ This is why i'm probably going to take a break from here for a few months. Seems harder for me to get the points i need for my group.


message 26: by Quirks (new)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7167 comments You could try a medium or fun team. Less pressure that way.

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4553 comments 1 week has passed. How is everyone doing?

I'm reading 4 books right now, hoping to finish all of them tomorrow and then get a few more done this weekend.


message 28: by Quirks (new)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7167 comments Doing good. Just started Scythe and I'm gonna try to finish as soon as I can.


message 29: by Leah (new)

Leah | 2145 comments I just added 3 more books.


message 30: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4553 comments I have 4 i need to add to the review thread but work has me doing like 4 different roles tonight and i won't have enough down time to write the reviews so hopefully tomorrow night i can get to them.


message 31: by Quirks (new)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7167 comments Hey, just checking in to see what everyone's reading. I just posted my review and I'm starting Starfall (Starflight, #2) by Melissa Landers as well as American Gods (American Gods, #1) by Neil Gaiman .


message 32: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4553 comments I've been battling a horrible cold all week, probably killed my liver with all the cold meds. I'm feeling better today so hoping its going away now :/


message 33: by Quirks (new)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7167 comments Man, cold sucks... the life out of you. And meds are like stuffing cotton in your brain. Really hope you get better soon.


message 34: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4553 comments I have one more review to write/add and i'm caught up, thank god for Large Print editions


message 35: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4553 comments And i just looked at the scores, shouldn't have done that at all. F**k


message 36: by Quirks (new)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7167 comments We're totally doomed in the challenge department. I've accepted it.


message 37: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4553 comments I doubt i'll finish any books tomorrow since it's a work day and i'm already tried as hell and i still have to drag through 4 more hours of work.

Good luck to those doing March's challenge.


message 38: by Quirks (new)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7167 comments I have one that I hope I'll finish in time. But that's it. Let's hope for better luck in March.
