Jessie (Saffity) (saffity) | 563 comments Hey Kiki, any idea which book you'd like to read? We don't have to do the ones I suggested, it can be any book.

★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix) (ladyknightnix) | 5517 comments Hi! I'm trying to read a lot of books right now so Leviathan would probably be best with me if you're ok with that. I own it but have never gotten around to reading it


Jessie (Saffity) (saffity) | 563 comments Sounds good to me!! I'm good to start it later in the month so you can get other books read :)

Jessie (Saffity) (saffity) | 563 comments Sounds good to me!!

★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix) (ladyknightnix) | 5517 comments Totally forgot we were starting this the 20th! Do you have a copy and want to start now? Doesn't look like too difficult of a read


message 12: by Kiki (new)

Kiki (kiki_west) | 24 comments I don't have a copy /: I'll just join in on next months challenge!


Jessie (Saffity) (saffity) | 563 comments I have a copy and can totally start if you'd like.

★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix) (ladyknightnix) | 5517 comments Awesome! Let's do it! I'll update about the first few chapters tomorrow.

★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix) (ladyknightnix) | 5517 comments I'm liking it so far (in Chapter Ten), but I think I like Deryn's story better than Alek's. I'm more interested in the creatures than the clankers. I've just met the book's namesake, the Leviathan, and it's so cool! I'm hoping we get more, and I'm assuming we will since (view spoiler)

I think maybe Alek's story will be more interesting when we know what the secret is. His fate is just too shrouded in mystery for my liking right now. Plus I grew up loving "girl disguised as boy" stories, so I think that hits a certain soft spot for me where Deryn is concerned.


Jessie (Saffity) (saffity) | 563 comments I'm 3 chapters in, so just met Deryn, I love that it's alternative history!! I'll have more to freak out about tonight.

★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix) (ladyknightnix) | 5517 comments I'm in Chapter 19.

I like the pictures that are every so often. (view spoiler)

Is it just me or is the story pretty slow moving? Like I feel like the whole time I'm reading I'm waiting for something big to happen.

★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix) (ladyknightnix) | 5517 comments I finished but I'm too tired to write any more about it now. I'll try to write a proper review tomorrow if I remember!


message 20: by ★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix), snowflakes and eyelashes (new) - rated it 4 stars

★ℕłℂØℓҾ★ (Nix) (ladyknightnix) | 5517 comments Did you ever finish reading this one? I forgot to make a proper review, and at this point I don't feel like it lol. But I do think I'll continue on in this series!


Jessie (Saffity) (saffity) | 563 comments I'm still working on it, my weekend was super busy, but I hope to get done in the next day.
