I'm in but I'll probably start a week late and end a week early due to checking this out from the library on a 14 day ebook loan.

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7589 comments I'm in too!

Anni, on the schedule, are chapters 1+2 supposed to start on the 2nd? And then onwards from there?


Anni | 5020 comments Yeah, sorry I'm too stupid to count :D 01 means 02 and so on... But I missed the fifth day so everything is fine after day 6...

Hahaha at least you corrected yourself after a few days then! XD


Hailee | 2427 comments Well I'm definately in but I won't be starting till about the 9th and how well i stick the schedule after I've caught up ... well we'll see 🤷‍♀️. Really looking forward to getting to this though!


jess (nu6586) | 1718 comments So on the 2nd April, we’re really doing Ch 1-4? Im trying to understand our chart!


message 10: by Anni (new) - rated it 4 stars

Anni | 5020 comments No, the first number is the day, and chapters after it are tje chapter for this day.
The problem is, I messed it up a bit... 01 means 02, 02 means 03, 03 means 04, 04 means 05 and 05 is missimg, so everything is fine after that. Sorry!

Today (02) we are reading chapter 1 and 2 :)


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7589 comments Yay it's the 2nd April in snowy old England! 🌨 I will report back! :D


message 12: by Anni (new) - rated it 4 stars

Anni | 5020 comments It's snowing in England? We've typical april wether, sunny and rainy alternating, but it's around 15°C degree middays.

I'm starting the first two chapters now :)


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7589 comments Yes it's snowing. Again. This had better be the last if it, I'm so sick!

I will be starting shortly, just going to fit a short story from Dangerous Women in before I start. :)


message 14: by Anni (new) - rated it 4 stars

Anni | 5020 comments Finished chapter 2 and well this started like book 1 ended, a bit confusing :D

I liked the prologue with the diary entry, Jorg doesn't seem to be the only one with dark thoughts :D

I think the first two chapters raise a lot of questions, can't wait to see the answers! (view spoiler)


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7589 comments I'm right there with you, Anni! Confused! Glad it's not just me. Definitely lots of questions raised.

Laura Tenfingers | 873 comments How could I have forgotten so much from book 1 after only a week or two?!?!?!? I'm a bit lost but I feel parts trickling back into my brain. Done with the first two chapters. Love both the theories described here. Cool ideas! (view spoiler)hmmmm...

Haha yeah, my aternate theory is a burning bed :D

And when you google something like this you're nearly begging for spoilers!

I made sure to add "Prince of Thorns"! I know it was risky, but luckily I didn't see any spoilers. What's the chances I would understand them even if I did... 😂

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7589 comments Laura I literally flagged the same quote! Love it! XD

I was thinking the same as you about Jorg in these chapters.

Laura Tenfingers | 873 comments I'm liking two chapters a day too. I keep thinking I'm just going to binge read it but it's more fun to discuss it at the same pace as you guys.

I really liked this quote, especially the first part (I quoted it above, because I don't think it's a spoiler). Quotes like this makes me smile while reading, I like Jorg's sarcastic and funny narration style :)

Sounds logical... But I can't remember that his teacher had told him something like this, not that it means that it didn't happened, I could have forgotten it...Maybe someone else's memory is better :)


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7589 comments Chapters 9 & 10. Well that was harrowing. 😭

That's what I got from that scene too, Anni. Thought it was really sweet. Jorg losing his edge...!

It's screwing with me too Jess! I haven't got a clue what's going on.
