This book is absolutely AMAZING!!! So unique and original, and just a beautiful story with beautiful writing.

Nancy (paper_addict) You guys are killing me. Always a new release gets voted for. Ok, may not not always but mostly. Luckily, the library actually has copies not checked out and an eBook available.


message 4: by Donna (new) - added it

Donna (bookdragongirl) I hear ya Nancy! I tried for Scythe and it was somewhat close. I wonder if that book will ever make it. Lol. Well, Oda knows how that feels. She never gives up though! I do want to read this one though, but it wasn't going to be available in the two libraries I use. So I splurged and bought it for my kindle.


Django Unchained | 5 comments I just finished this book like 15min ago and it was spectacular!!!! I cant wait for the final book, Atleast the cliff hanger wasnt that bad so i can live with it i guess till we get the next book in 2018... hopefully >.< it was just beautifull, the story, the descriptions and everything.


message 6: by Donna (new) - added it

Donna (bookdragongirl) WOW!!! Now your just getting me excited!!! Dang, I've got to read a couple books I've promised reviews on first. MUST HURRY!!


Django Unchained | 5 comments You have noooo idea, the only thing i regret is that i didnt wait till the second book is out... the waiting... is allrdy killing me. Im literally trying to search for a new book now to read with a male pov and romance just to "forgett" and take my mind of this story :x I just cant stop thinking about it.

I finished this one a few days ago and am still suffering from book hangover! Absolutely exceptional read! I'm sure I'll do a reread before the next book comes out just because I want to! I'll do it by audio next time! The writing is breathtaking!


Django Unchained | 5 comments Exactly my thoughts. The only thing that helps me with the book hangover is that i know that atleast there is hope for them, its not a tragedy like Robin Hobb series or the Kingkiller Chronicles. If there would be no hope the ending would be different.


message 10: by Nancy (new) - added it

Nancy (paper_addict) See, that why we shouldn't nominate books when they first come out. Because now everyone will be on pins and needles waiting for book 2.


Django Unchained | 5 comments Isnt that the case with all the new promising books? We get immersed in the new world with loveable characters and romances that we (or atleast i) miss from our lives and then boom, the book ends and we have to wait for atleast a year for the sequel... We need more authors with Brandon Sandersons speed but who write Patrick Rothfuss quality stories every 4-6th moon....

LOL, yup that sounds about exactly right!

I've been trying to wait for more series to finish before I start reading them. Trying, not always succeeding!

Long waiting too?

Django Unchained | 5 comments Maybe its against some unwriten rule or honor code in this community :x but i got the pirated version of it both in pdf and in Epub. Since you plan to borrow it from the library and all xD If you give me an email i would be happy to send it over.

WOW, that makes me even more excited! I think I am #18 on the waiting list, but there are 4 copies so it shouldn't take too much longer :)

Move over Mark Watney (from The Martian)! You have competition as my book boyfriend. Lazlo Strange is the perfect boyfriend/husband!

I read 4 chapters this morning and I totally agree with you David. Not a whole lot going on yet but it's not boring at all. I can't wait to read more tonight after my boys go to bed. :)

Sarah (geekymom13) | 50 comments I finished it this afternoon. Holy book hangover... Such a lovely read and Lazlo is definitely my new book boyfriend as well! <3


Melissa ♥ Dog/Wolf Lover ♥ Martin | 330 comments I'm so glad you guys enjoyed this =] I read it when it came out but I'm going to do a re-read by audio if I can ever get moving in line on Overdrive =]


Karen’s Library | 11320 comments Mod
Haha Sarah! I had a serious book hangover after this one!!


Karen’s Library | 11320 comments Mod
I also plan to reread by audio soon, Melissa!


Melissa ♥ Dog/Wolf Lover ♥ Martin | 330 comments Woot! Maybe mine will come in when you start =]

I'm waiting to get it on Audible because I'm collecting and re-reading The Lunar Chronicles so when they come through at the end of the month I'm getting Scarlet and Cress. I wish I had a million free credits. Lol
