Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Sorry for the late post, my charger broke and phone died.
End chapter one: (view spoiler) Where are you guys in the review?


Sophie Sorry, I've been super busy lately! I'll try to get to this tomorrow.


Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments No worries. If you are a high school student or in college I completely understand. Especially if you live in the US things are pretty busy with the holiday and I know schools can give a lot of homework during this time well, at least my school that is.

Sully  (lorlorsully) | 89 comments Anyone still planning on doing this BR tomorrow? I'm looking to join if so =)


rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments I am, Elise! Sorry I'm late.

Awesome, looking forward to it =)


Ashley (xanthax) | 2525 comments Chapter 8: (view spoiler)


Ashley (xanthax) | 2525 comments Chapter 14: (view spoiler)


Sully  (lorlorsully) | 89 comments Up to Chapter 5 (pg 53)

So I know I probably read a blurb on this book when I first added it to my to read list, but I don't remember what it's really about, and I love going into novels with a blind eye to really dive in it without any premade notions or spoilers. And I have to admit that right off the bat, this world is certainly unique.

One question that comes to my mind so far while reading is why looks play such a large role in this world for girls like Violet. They make a big deal about not being allowed to have mirrors where she's been, and when she first sees her reflection, (view spoiler). But if these girls are simply surrogates, why should it matter what they look like? Their DNA will not be used in anyway during the surrogacy, so I'm wondering why looks are so important.

In response to your comments.. (view spoiler)

That's a good point. I think if I were in that situation, I would want the opposite though. If I were going to have a surrogate (view spoiler)


Ashley (xanthax) | 2525 comments I agree with you there. (view spoiler)


Sully  (lorlorsully) | 89 comments Ashley wrote: "I agree with you there. [spoilers removed]"

It does make sense that royalty could/would marry for alliances and status and less for love. And I wouldn't be surprised at all if there would be some incest. That seems to happen a lot in monarchies where they try to keep the bloodlines as pure as possible *cringe*

That all being said, it would make sense to want the prettiest surrogate. I haven't gotten that far into the book to the part you mentioned, so that hadn't factored into my low middle class thought process lol.


Sully  (lorlorsully) | 89 comments Up to Chapter IX (pg 97)

Ashley wrote: "I'm also a bit confused as to what the auguries are..."

Yeah, I am wondering the same thing at this point. It definitely seems like it is (view spoiler) And why do only certain people exhibit them, and only from the one part of the society/the outer circle?

At this point, I'm glad I'm not Violet or any of the other girls. (view spoiler)

The sudden appearance of Garnet (view spoiler)

Ashley wrote: "Chapter 14: [spoilers removed]"

I really like Annabelle too. She seems like (view spoiler)

Yeah, the thing with the niece is pretty messed up. That whole situation is awkward, and just further goes to show how... odd this royal society's customs are turning out to be.

What did you think of the way (view spoiler)

I still don't quite know how Ewing is trying to protray the Duchess. I realize perhaps she is trying to make Ewing seem intruguing, but even when (view spoiler)

All the people in this world seen totally messed up, terrible, horrible people, but I can't stop reading this book.

Yeah, it certainly seems like this is the case. Not surprising, really, after what she's recently been going through, but definitely doesn't look good for her.

What is really starting to annoy me is her (view spoiler)

rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments Gah! I'm so, so sorry! I've been meaning to read this since August and it just hasn't happened... I'll get to it asap. I'm on holidays now so I've got time. Again, so sorry and hope you don't mind me joining in late.
