Trisha | 31440 comments Yay Mariah!!!

alright, black and white cover!! I'm pretty open.
Is there a book you have your eye on or shall I start looking?


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

You should start looking! And sorry I've been super busy and my phone died! I bet you where like where is this girl! Hahaha:)


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

Also I know the hush hush series is all black and white but I've only read the first book. There's four books all together in the series.


message 6: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments No, no worries! LOL! I knew you probably had stuff going on!

I've only read Hush, Hush as well and it was years ago!

I'd be game to read book two: Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2) by Becca Fitzpatrick
I didn't like book 1 but I think I might like book 2 more now...but I'll look for some books too (after I look at your TBR and your read books. I'll try to find some books we both might like!)

let me know if you think of any others!


message 7: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments Black and White covers:
Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2) by Becca Fitzpatrick Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta Velveteen by Daniel Marks Angelfire (Angelfire, #1) by Courtney Allison Moulton Defiance (Defiance #1) by C.J. Redwine The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff Ashfall (Ashfall, #1) by Mike Mullin Frost by Marianna Baer

Books I'll have to check with Gisbelle:
Strange Angels (Strange Angels, #1) by Lili St. Crow


message 8: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments I think only 1 of those books is on both of our TBR's
Strange Angels

the rest are ones that aren't too long and are books I think we might enjoy (there were a few more black and white covers but I'd either read them or they were 500+ page books and I wasn't sure we wanted one that long! :D)

What do you think? I either own or can get my hands on any/all of those books!


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

They all look good to me! And 500 paged books are fine to me! Same I can probably get any of those books from like half price books or the library or Barnes and nobles!


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

The books that seem like they might be good are strange angels, defiance, angel fire and velveteen!


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

And maybe crescendo! I feel like the second on will be much better than the first!


message 12: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments Velveteen by Daniel Marks
I think my vote is Velveteen. If you don't mind. I've wanted to read this one for so long!!

Maybe if we read quick enough, we can read Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2) by Becca Fitzpatrick too :)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments If you girls read Velveteen by Daniel Marks is it all right if I crash your party and join you? LOL Is that permissible?


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

Okay that's cool Trisha lets read that book!:) & are we aloud to add another person? If we can it fine with me!


message 15: by Vicki (new) - added it

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I'm sure it's no problem, but I just want to make sure it's okay with both of you.


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

It's ok with me but I don't know what my partner thinks about it.

Purgatory (view spoiler)


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

Wow I'm on chapter 8! I don't like Bonesaw he's awful. Velveteen's awesome! I like how she's real strong and a fighter. She doesn't let anything get in her way! And yeah Nick he seems real lost! I wander how it's gonna go down with him?


message 31: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments So you like it so far, right?


message 32: by Vicki (new) - added it

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I wasn't able to start this one yet but I still want to, so I can't wait to read all of your spoilers. It'll be a slow read for me just due to school starting. The kids start Wednesday so I have a couple days that won't be as stressful.

Do you both like this one so far? I read the first few pages just to see what it's like and I have a feeling I'll like it.


message 33: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments I'm just finding it really confusing....
I'm hoping it starts clearing up soon.....


message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

Yessss! It's reallyy interesting!!!! You picked a good book!:D


message 35: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments so Mariah...do you understand (view spoiler)


message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah the revolutionaries believe that the powers with in Purgatory are keeping them from moving on and going out into the daylight! The revolutionaries are somehow causing bigger cracks to form in Purgatory by trapping souls in daylight which is causing the shadowquakes.

Trisha | 31440 comments okay, wait

yikes. sounds like a scary place
it's so sad that she loses memories every time she's hurt - how it came out of her and burned up :(

Bonesaw [spoiler..."


Is this purgatory a different one than the Catholics teach? It's its own world in this book, right?

How is it that others can see (view spoiler)

Velvet is really (view spoiler)

message 48: by [deleted user] (new)

Anytime! & when ever you finish


message 49: by [deleted user] (new)

We can all talk about it as a group!


message 50: by [deleted user] (new)

Also Catholics believe that Purgatory is where you are cleansed and purified which means you have to be completely freed from sin before you go to Heaven. God said that nothing unclean shall enter heaven. Through repentance you can be cleansed and forgiven and gain grace and can be worthy of heaven. Catholics don't believe that when you enter Purgatory you can go to either Heaven or Hell. They teach that Purgatory is to cleanse you to get ready for your place in Heaven.
