Katriann (annelisreadingroom) | 2190 comments I have now read 16 chapters and here are some of my thoughts.

I really like this book so far! (view spoiler)

I hate (view spoiler)

I wonder if (view spoiler)

I don't know why (view spoiler)


Kikijanika | 2979 comments I still haven't started actually but I will today.


Kikijanika | 2979 comments I'm done with chapter 10.

Okay, I wonder if (view spoiler)

It seems like (view spoiler)

Well, I did not see (view spoiler)


Sarah I'm only about 50 pages in but this is really not doing it for me so far. I'm hoping it gets better.


Kikijanika | 2979 comments Chapter 20.

I also wonder whether (view spoiler)

Quite a coincidense that (view spoiler)

I agree that (view spoiler)

I hope you'll like the book better as it progresses Sarah. But you can't like all the books, can you? At least you've then tried this series ☺

Yes, let's hope you'll like it better when you read a little more. :)


Katriann (annelisreadingroom) | 2190 comments @Kikijanika, (view spoiler)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Sorry guys, but my book still hasn't arrived and I am leaving for Hawaii in the morning and I won't possibly be able to start this until the 16th. I wish I could buy EVERY book so I don't run into this problem!


Kikijanika | 2979 comments Yeah, I know the feeling! Hope you'll have a great time in Hawaii!


Katriann (annelisreadingroom) | 2190 comments Hopefully you'll get the book after your trip Vicki! And have a great time in Hawaii! :)

Kikijanika | 2979 comments Yeah, the thought of (view spoiler)


Sarah A little over a hundred pages in. Still just not feeling this one.
I just don't feel like I'm connecting to the characters. Maybe its the style, maybe its the characters, maybe its me. Not usre.

Going to give it a couple more chapters and hope it improves.


Kikijanika | 2979 comments Hope it gets better for you but if not then hopefully you find something better next ☺


message 41: by Sarah (last edited Jul 13, 2017 10:07AM) (new) - rated it 2 stars

Sarah I've made it to chapter 16 and now it is finally getting interesting for me!
Hopefully it will go faster now that I'm getting into it more.
Thanks for encouraging me to stick with it, Kikijanika and Katriann!


But at this point I think Cleo needs a good whack upside the head with some common sense!


Kikijanika | 2979 comments Haha..yeah. She wasn't the most sensible person! But I'm glad you find the story better now!


Katriann (annelisreadingroom) | 2190 comments Yes, Cleo can be a bit annoying at times. :D

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Hey everybody, I FINALLY got my book so I'll be starting this one today or maybe tomorrow.

I'm glad to see you loved it, Katriann and Kiki. I hope Sarah and I do too!


Sarah Finished this today.

It got better but in the end was just an ok read for me.

Cleo annoyed me until the end. Certain things were just a little too convenient to work for me (view spoiler)
I may try to continue with this series at some point, but it won't be soon.
This is the third book I've read lately that was just meh for me. Hoping the next book I try works out better for me.

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Good luck Sarah.


Sarah Vicki wrote: "Good luck Sarah."

Thanks, Vicki!
I just seem to be in one of those slumps where nothing really seems to be what I want, but I can't figure out exactly what it is I want. It is very annoying!


message 48: by Vicki (new) - added it

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I've definitely been there!


Kikijanika | 2979 comments I agree that some things were quite convinient for the story. Hope you like your next book better.

Katriann (annelisreadingroom) | 2190 comments I agree. It was a bit of a coincident how (view spoiler)
