So the idea of a 'Book of the month' is sort of a read-along. The BOTM thread (this one) will be for the people who want to do the read-along and share their thoughts after each goal (October 6/7 - I just read till chapter 1 and my thoughts are .... etc.). Spoilers must be marked of course!

October 6/7 - read until (incl.) chapter 1
October 8/9 - read until (incl.) chapter 2
October 10/11 - read until (incl.) chapter 3
October 12/13 - Time to catch up!
October 14/15 - read until (incl.) chapter 4
October 16/17 - read until (incl.) chapter 5
October 18/19 - read until (incl.) chapter 7
September 20/21 - Time to catch up!
October 22/23 - read until (incl.) chapter 8

October 26/27 - read until (incl.) chapter 10
October 28 - Time to catch up!
October 29/30 - read until (incl.) chapter 11 (Book finished)

No, me neither! xD
Thank you for joining Ilsen, I'll add you to the list :)

I'm not sure if I should join, cause I was lowkey hoping another book would win since I just finished reading this entire series this year :(

Awww no... it's ok. I understand if you don't join. This book sounds like it's really short though. I expected it to be longer XD

It is quite short compared to previous BOTM's, about 350 pages :)
But it's such a cool book! I really hope you'll like it :D

Actually the fact that it's shorter is a relief. I've been having trouble with reading because of college but now with this easy schedule, I feel like I have plenty of time. And I'm very excited so yay!

Glad to hear that! :)

I'm just having trouble getting used to it because I suck at time management and I really loved high school (I know that's strange) so that's my issue. I'm trying to figure out a reading schedule but right now it's been busy. Currently I'm doing homework right now

@Ilsen

Ohh, I really hope you'll figure it out, Ilsen!
If you need any tips on how to do time management more effectively, feel free to send me a message! I got a sort-of-technique that works for me personally (most of the time xD cause, honestly, procrastination is my speciality oopsss)

Lara (Bookish_turtle) The copy I got from my library is a paperback with the movie characters on the front, and I am very disappointed. The characters are all wrong and the book has become an advertisement for the movie. :( I think that settles it... I will have to buy myself a hardcover boxed-set as soon as I can afford it...

Anyways, are you guys enjoying it so far?
