How did you like it? I still haven't read Book 2 + 3, by now I guess I need to reread book 1, because I can hardly remember what was going on...


And good job, of course ;)


message 31: by Virginie (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments To be honest... Very 'meh'. I lost interest in the story in book 2, and powered through this one on audio at 1.8x speed for my series challenge only xD

Fifth bingo (first column)! Three books left! :D


message 46: by Bea (new)

Bea | 2052 comments What, you're already done with Wuthering Heights? Good job! :)
I still haven't read more than 3 chapters, I'm somehow not feeling it atm...


message 47: by Virginie (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments Thanks!

It went faster that I expected. I read 5 chapters a day 'cause I wanted to finish it before the end of the month ;)

I understand not feeling it though. It's different from my usual reads but then, it made a nice contrast with all the UF I'm binging these days.


message 48: by Bea (new)

Bea | 2052 comments It's probably not the book itself, I think I'm just not in the mood for a classic.

And you're almost done with the challenge, I just saw it now. Wow!


message 49: by Virginie (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments I'm rarely in the mood for a classic, so I was surprised to have read this one so quickly. The fact I read it in French probably helped too :p


message 50: by Bea (new)

Bea | 2052 comments Yeah, that probably makes it easier ;)
I'm stubborn and always want to read classics in the original language (that means at least when they're english or german ;) )
