Trisha | 31440 comments I know! it's crazy, I couldn't even find the book and it's optioned as a movie with Emma Watson. lol

Trisha | 31440 comments which cover did you get? the one above or a different one??
I try to avoid book stores! LOL I never leave there without spending lots of money! :)


message 5: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments Yay Sadie!! You ready to start this one tomorrow??


message 6: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments yikes...chapters are long...

um....4 chapters is 100 pages
BUT

the book is broken up into 3 parts.
each part is about 150 pages....

what do you think? how much to do you plan to read at a time? want to aim for 2 chapters, ~ 50 pages? Or 100 pages? Or by parts?


message 7: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments no worries. 2 chapters sounds great! I have quite a few books going too - most of them long! LOL
I hope this one is good. I'll be back later tonight with an update!

Happy reading!


message 8: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments okay...well..I only made it one chapter but thought I should update.... :)

Kelsea (view spoiler)

Tearling (view spoiler)

this is really interesting. I can't wait to read more!!!


message 9: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments okay, I made it through chapter 2

I can't believe (view spoiler)


message 10: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments no worries :) I'm taking this one nice and slow
I'm having a horrible allergic reaction and am covered in Poison Ivy. I'm on medication and whatnot and it's really messing with my ability to concentrate on reading...

I hope Thailand is a vacation and that you are getting to relax and have fun!! I'll start reading more than one chapter a day on monday, but until then - nice and slow so no worries :)

message 13: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments lol I'm so glad it isn't just me Sadie!!!

but at least it's interesting so far! I'm so glad we're taking it slow! I'll hopefully pick up reading more chapters this next week!

You know...so far it's odd
We are only 3 chapters in but almost 100 pages in!
and it's still world building - and it's confusing....but interesting. :) the jury is still out


message 15: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Haha! Okay I'll wait till the verdict is in to decide if I'll read it. Lol


message 16: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments okay, done with chapter 4
I'm not sure if it's the pace I'm taking this book but I'm getting bored....bleh
hopefully I can read a chapter a day minimum because I'm definitely losing steam! LOL

how are you doing Sadie?


message 17: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments oh no! Poor baby. I hope she feels better soon!!

no worries, i'd kick this one LOOOOOW down on your reading list. Don't stress about this one as you get caught up.


message 18: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments I don't know Sadie.
Should we abandon this one??

I'm almost 200 pages in and I...bleh. I hate reading it :(

Trisha | 31440 comments Hello Colleen,

I'm so sorry this is a bad example of our buddy reads.
Sadie and I have actually both decided we're not going to continue this book
I know I'm well over 100 pages in and am just not enjoying it.

You can check out our other threads under buddy reads and see if there is another book you might want to try.
We just read the book together and make posts discussing it! it's fun!
