Good luck with Renegades! I ended up really enjoying it.

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments Which of Meyer's books was the best?

I think the Lunar Chronicles are still my favourite, specifically Winter, but Renegades comes a close second. I wasn't a fan of Heartless unfortunately :(

I agree with Skye! Definitely the Lunar Chronicles.

message 22: by ✨Skye✨ (new)

✨Skye✨ | 3163 comments I am doing some reading, but I'm going to be a little slow this next week as I have an exam and an essay I need to write. After next Friday though, I should be able to speed up a little.


message 23: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments Today, I'm mostly devoting my time to reading.


message 24: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments I finished Renegades yesterday! I'll post my review about maybe either Friday or Saturday. I should also have at least 2 other books done by then.

I can start it anytime you want. I will finish the book I am on tonight so I will be free tomorrow but if that is to soon then anytime is great

Was Renegades good? I love Marissa Meyer.


message 27: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments Renegades was amazing! I finished Grendel's Guide to Love and War. Starting This Is Where It Ends.

Abby | 5454 comments Why are we missing so many members?


message 29: by ✨Skye✨ (new)

✨Skye✨ | 3163 comments Do you want to start maybe the 21st Susan?
All of our team have checked in, but some haven't posted reviews yet, Carolyn said she is planning to within the next couple days. If we don't hear from the others soon I'll let Sarah know :)


message 30: by ✨Skye✨ (new)

✨Skye✨ | 3163 comments I've just found a recent post from Sarah saying if those who have checked in haven't posted a review by halfway, she'll message them :)


message 31: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments I should another review maybe Monday.

Hello Team Espresso ☺ Just wanted to let you know that I have messaged Haley, Susan, and Courtney to check in with them as we are 2 weeks into the challenge and they haven't posted reviews yet. Just wanted to let you know what was going on ☺


message 33: by Susan (new)

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 2376 comments I thought I had posted my reviews. I wonder where I posted them if it wasn't here??? So weird. I posted my 2 reviews so far.I should have another one by tomorrow.


message 34: by ✨Skye✨ (new)

✨Skye✨ | 3163 comments Currently in the middle of 4 buddy reads (!!) all of which are pretty heavy books, so I might not have another review for a couple days after a pretty good stretch for me :) We shall see how far I can push myself however!

I'm in the same boat. About 50% through 3 different books right now!


message 36: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments I have finished one book and starting a new one. I should post at least two reviews Thursday night. Going to get 3 reviews by Thursday night.

Hi Team Espresso, just wanted to let you know that Courtney replied to my message to say that she was waiting to post her reviews, so we may just have to wait a bit longer to see if she does post them. Haley hasn't replied, so I'm guessing that she won't be participating. I will look into finding a replacement team member for you ☺

I'm on another team challenge with Haley and she's MIA there as well. I think it's safe to assume she's gone.

Welcome! Here's the link to the categories we're reading for this month: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
You can use any book you've read within the month of January and post in the review thread.


message 45: by ✨Skye✨ (new)

✨Skye✨ | 3163 comments Just finished my final book of the month and posted my review after reading maybe 500 pages today to finish them! Quite proud that I managed to do it and read 12 books in total this month, which is more than I've read in years :) Well done team!
