Gazi Nuzhat | 21 comments I'm in


Solseit | 1460 comments I am in! In fact, I started this morning.
I appreciated so much the recap at the beginning of the book. Absolutely precious.

I am through chapter 10.

I still love how socially awkward Nona is. She is this unique character portrayed in a convincing way - at least well enough to convince me.

The plot is immediately thick. I am disliking the “usual” bully of the class.
I am always waiting for the story to escalate and become more addictive!


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3909 comments I'm going to be a couple days late. Will try to start this week.


Solseit | 1460 comments I am through chapter 27.
What an amazing ride so far. It takes a while to build momentum yet it is worth it. I am struggling to put the boom down now.

(view spoiler).

I cannot wait to be home and resume reading!!


Solseit | 1460 comments I just blasted my way to the end of the book and I can only say positive things about the book! In fact, this might be one of my all time favorite middle book of a trilogy.
I do not want to voice much more in terms of content - I am curious to see what the rest think about the book!

Glad you liked it! I'll likely start it tomorrow, really looking forward to it.


Anni | 5048 comments Haha, I came here and thought I need to scroll down to Lawrence, to add a comment that I will start tonight, but thanks to you Charlie it already popped up in the updates :)

Anni | 5048 comments Oh and I love the recaps Lawrence wrote, a lot more authors should do this, it's so helpful! I'm especially happy because the world was explained again and I guess I missed bits reading the first book, because the world buildung became a lot clearer!


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Just started and read the recap, it really was helpful, I'd forgotten loads.


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Chapter 1 complete! (view spoiler)

message 16: by Anni (new) - rated it 4 stars

Anni | 5048 comments I'm somewhere in the middle of chapter 14 and so far I enjoy this way more than the first book! My problem with the first one was mainly that the characters stayed a little flat the whole time and they are growing on me a lit more here!

Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments @Anni IKR? chapter 8 (view spoiler)

@Charlie You're probably right. (view spoiler)


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3909 comments I see this thread is gaining traction. I wasn't sure if I was going to skip this one this month, but I think I can squeeze it in. I'll start tonight.

Yay! :)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Glad to have you Diana! I'm reading 3 books at once so i'll be here a while, no rush to catch up :)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Chapter 13 complete. (view spoiler)


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3909 comments Ha! I'm in the same boat. I think I'm reading or listening to 6 books right now. Def a record for me lol.


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Haha at one point in Nov I think I was up to 6, it's overwhelming!

@Anni I read Nevernight then Red sister straight after last year. This year I finished Godsgrave a few days ago and then started this book. Reading them together I can definitely see similarities, though I love both series.


Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments Through chapter 18. Definitely enjoying it more than the first book. (view spoiler)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Just read chapter 14, Glass is definitely up to something! I wish I knew what it was!


Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments Through chapter 22

I don't think I'm the right audience for this book. (view spoiler)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments I'm 169 pages in, we've just had the Shade Trial! (view spoiler)

Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments It's madness! (view spoiler)

Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Up to 353 (chapter 41) and everything is kicking off.

Nona (view spoiler)

Glass (view spoiler)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Finished! what a freaking ride! The last 100 pages or so were so intense. The pacing really picked up and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments Sorry folks, I didn't like it 😢😢

Aw no! What a shame Laura, I hope your next read is much better for you!

You got anything good planned?


Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments I think I need some mood reading. How can I already feel overscheduled by buddy reads? It's only January! 😅😅 Probably some historical fiction...


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Haha I'm over-scheduled too! I swore I wasn't going to overbook myself but I've already broken my rule.


message 46: by Anni (new) - rated it 4 stars

Anni | 5048 comments I'm now done as well! :) I liked it a lot better than the first one, it was something between 3.5 and 4 stars, so I just rounded it up! I still had some problems with Lawrence way of story telling, sometimes, to me, it feels like he's trying too hard... But overall it was an enjoyable, fast-paced read :) I liked the characters a lot more in this one, a little more depth would have been great, but I found them a lot more likeable in this one!

(view spoiler)

I'm looking forward to see how everything will come together in the final book :)
