Lesa Divine | 30 comments I'll do this as a reread since part 2 comes out in September. I really enjoyed this book. Want to see if I'll still feel the same way.

Oh dang! I was thinking it was a stand alone lol.

It used to be. But Schwab decided to do Vengeful (Villains, #2) by V.E. Schwab as part 2.

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7591 comments Darn, why can't anything be a standalone anymore?!

Vicious can be read as a standalone. I read it I was pleased at how it ended but I guess Schwab got too pressured to continue it on.

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7591 comments Hey! Anni and I would like to propose a schedule for this buddy read, over two weeks. Obviously entirely optional! :D

Anyone who fancies reading along to a schedule, does the below seem OK to you? :)

Part One
20th - 1 - 3
21st - 4 - 10
22nd - 11 - 16
23rd - 17 - 21
24th - 22 - 27
25th - 28 - 32
26th - 33 - 36

Part Two
27th - 1 - 4
28th - 5 - 9
29th - 10 - 15
30th - 16 - 22
1st - 23 - 28
2nd - 29 - 33
3rd - 34 - 36

Each day is roughly 25 pages (in my UK paperback anyway!) 😅

The schedule makes this seem more doable for me. Consider me a maybe. "I shall attempt the join."


message 17: by Karishma (new)

Karishma (karishmanewar) | 1612 comments The schedule makes it more doable for me too! Thanks Siobhan!


message 18: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments Dang I wasn't supposed to buy anymore books before July, but I would really want to do this BR and your schedule makes it really easy to consider doing it as well Siobhan... I guess I'm going to break my rules... again... ^^"


message 19: by Anni (new)

Anni | 5020 comments I'm glad there's so much positive response to scheduled BR :) Thank you Siobhan for setting it up!


message 20: by Siobhan (new)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7591 comments Yay that's awesome! So glad you'll all be reading with us! :D

Scott, could you possibly add the schedule above to your first comment if you get a chance? Just so it's obvious for everyone. :)


message 21: by Timelord Iain (last edited May 22, 2018 08:08PM) (new)

Timelord Iain | 14948 comments This has been on my TBR for about a year now due to a Recommendations challenge I did last summer... so I'll try and join... might even follow the schedule... it's been working pretty well for Bookburners... it's just like 30-45 minutes a day in between other reads...

The title of this thread keeps making me think Sid Vicious, tho...


message 22: by Siobhan (new)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7591 comments It'll be great to have you join us, Iain! :)

I like these schedules because I read the daily section then can read anything else I want at my own pace. It's letting me slot in extra reads somehow!

And yeah, definitely makes me think of Sid.


message 23: by Lesa (new)

Lesa Divine | 30 comments I'm still interested in rereading this before book 2 comes out.
I would do the schedule but it'll be hard for me since I read a book or 2 a day. So I know once I start reading I'll end up finishing it the same day. But I'll join in on the book discussions.


message 24: by Siobhan (new)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7591 comments Haha that's totally cool Lesa, read it however is best for you :)

Honest, Iain is definitely gonna read it in 3 hours too 😂

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7591 comments Michael, I love the mini chapters too! Always makes me want to read more. I get through books with short chapters much quicker!

Elinor, totally agree about Eli and Victor and I can't wait to find out more about Sydney too.
