Kikijanika | 3017 comments Hey, are you ready to start this one. I'll be travelling for the next 3 weeks so I might make a little slower progress than usually. However, there are some flights and train/bus rides I can use for reading ☺

Natalie Snow (nataliesnow) | 178 comments Hello, yes I´m planning on starting it today. That works for me, I´m a slow reader myself and this heat isn´t helping :)


message 4: by Kikijanika (new)

Kikijanika | 3017 comments Great :) Then it will probably work out fine!

Natalie Snow (nataliesnow) | 178 comments I´m only on chapter 6, which isn´t far but I´ve been a little busy and tired. Going to try to get more reading done this week though.

My thoughts so far:

Natalie Snow (nataliesnow) | 178 comments I haven´t read a thing the past couple of days so i´ll have to catch up to you as soon as I can.


message 11: by Kikijanika (new)

Kikijanika | 3017 comments No worries! you'll read when it suits you best☺


message 12: by Natalie Snow (new)

Natalie Snow (nataliesnow) | 178 comments But don´t finish it in a week though. Going away for a few days on monday, too, going to try and read on the bus and the weekend :)


message 13: by Kikijanika (new)

Kikijanika | 3017 comments Sure! I can concentrate on other books for a while so you can catch up 😁

Natalie Snow (nataliesnow) | 178 comments Sorry for the late answer. I read to almost chapter 16 a week ago but I haven´t gotten longer than that. I didn´t feel like reading when I was away but I will try tomorrow again. I´m not sure what I think of this book, I´m not that hooked to it as I hoped I would..

Thank you for being so understanding! I like buddy reading with you though :)

Kikijanika | 3017 comments No problem! I've also travelled a lot and have been quite busy. Also I'm visiting my sister who's doing her internship in this publishing company so I've been trying to read the books she's been working on. Tomorrow I'll have a five-hour train ride ahead of me and then the day after I'll be flying to Europe so I will probably continue reading this on those trips. But I get what you mean...somehow I haven't really got as hooked to the story as I thought!

Kikijanika | 3017 comments I finished this but I'm still hapoy to read your thoughts if you want to write as you go on ☺ I have kind of contradictory feelings about this book.

Natalie Snow (nataliesnow) | 178 comments If you want to, i´ll read yours as I go. I´m a bit the same.
So far I´m on chapter 21, a bit annoyed there but we´ll see.


message 19: by Kikijanika (new)

Kikijanika | 3017 comments Yeah ☺ maybe you'll get more into it as you go. Or then not. Either way I'd like to read your thoughts!
