Place to discuss the November read Rebel Belle Rebel Belle (Rebel Belle, #1) by Rachel Hawkins

Becky (bek11) | 451 comments *Sigh* I wanted to read this but life has been crazy. I'll put in the inter-library loan thing now and hope things slow down by the time it comes in.


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Sorry to hear that Becky! No hurry. I just started it this weekend and am intrigued so far.


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
I am about 2-3 hours into the audiobook and am intrigued so far. The main character starts off like kind of a popular/mean girl so I am hoping she starts becoming more endearing. I assume she will.

this book sounds pretty interesting...


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
It is good so far.

Gale (goodreadscomglredw) | 8 comments I;'ll try it


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Yay! I am about 1/3rd of the way into it and still intrigued.

Becky (bek11) | 451 comments Still waiting for my inter-library loan....but since I'm reading Out of the Easy, that's OK.

Gale (goodreadscomglredw) | 8 comments I want to read this but it's not on my kindle unlimited and I can't afford it so I have to wait for the library


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Does your library have it Gale? I hope so!


message 13: by Gale (new)

Gale (goodreadscomglredw) | 8 comments Yes it will be audio and I will have to wait


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Ok no hurry! I am listening to the audio and it is not one of my favorite narrators. She kind of gets on my nerves but not enough to chuck it all and get the print version!

I am about half done (I powered through a ton yesterday while cleaning). I am liking it. I still don't feel a connection to the main character but I think more will be revealed about her so I am waiting for full judgment. So far it has a kind of Buffy the VS vibe but with southern etiquette. I am finding the info about the "magical" portions interesting.


*b*l*u*e*m*o*o*n* | 986 comments Mod
i just borrowed the ebook. So hope to get to it.


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Yay!


*b*l*u*e*m*o*o*n* | 986 comments Mod
Started it today. It's pretty good. I can't wait for them to explain the whole situation tho.


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
I just passed the whole explanation part so feel a little more up to speed. I think I have 3 hours left of the audiobook and I am enjoying it. So far it is a solid 3.5 star read.

Jenny (juliababyjen) | 1572 comments I really want to read this one, but it may be awhile till I get to it!


message 21: by Gale (new)

Gale (goodreadscomglredw) | 8 comments Me to waiting for library version


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
No hurry ladies - even if it is after Nov. come on back here and I will chat about it :)


*b*l*u*e*m*o*o*n* | 986 comments Mod
Hey a 3.5 "Heidi Rating" is pretty good!


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Sure is!


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Ok i finished it. I thought it was a solid 3.5 star read. It was no Hex Hall but a nice light read with a good set up for book two. My only issues really were that I am not 100% invested in the two main characters. I really don't feel like I "know" them yet if that makes sense and I am still not sure about the romance. I also thought the ending was a little rushed. I hope to get deeper into the characters in the next book but I am definitely intrigued enough to give it a read.


message 26: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (juliababyjen) | 1572 comments I still need to get a copy of this one. I really want to buy it!


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
I bought the audio as an "app" for my ipod. It was only $10 but the next week my library added it as an Overdrive audio book. Ugh! Either way it was the first time I have done the audiobook app thing and it worked really well.


message 28: by Becky (new)

Becky (bek11) | 451 comments I just picked up my inter-library loan. I have this and one other book to work on during the Thanksgiving break.


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Yay Becky! I thought is was a fun light read. Hope you enjoy.


*b*l*u*e*m*o*o*n* | 986 comments Mod
I'm really getting into it now. Just half way into it. My problem are the protagonists. I don't feel the connection yet. Especially with Harper. I just can't seem to like her.


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
I had the same problem. She is kind of a spoiled rich girl.


message 32: by Gale (new)

Gale (goodreadscomglredw) | 8 comments I got my library copies but it doesn't work on my kindle will have to buy it but won't be till next week


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Awww that stinks. Wonder why it doesn't work - it is not a kindle book??


message 34: by Gale (new)

Gale (goodreadscomglredw) | 8 comments It's working on my kindle because I downloaded the audio book for the library cause I can"t affordable amazon I'm going to start readingit


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Oh good!


message 36: by Gale (new)

Gale (goodreadscomglredw) | 8 comments Is there a deadline


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Nope. Feel free to post updates anytime :)


*b*l*u*e*m*o*o*n* | 986 comments Mod
I finished this book just at the end of November. Its good. I gave it a three. Good enough for me to finish it, but not so good that I couldn't put it down!


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Same here Bluemoon. Average but not spectacular.


message 40: by Becky (new)

Becky (bek11) | 451 comments I'm about halfway and if I rated it right now, I'd give it 2 stars. I'm not sure how these 2 kids are the two smartest kids in their class. (view spoiler) Anyway, I'm holding out hope that it does end well.


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Hahaha Becky! Good points!


*b*l*u*e*m*o*o*n* | 986 comments Mod
BECKY: hahahaha...when I read that part and they felt so shocked, all I could think of is..."really? were you guys not listening to her just a few minutes ago?"


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Agreed!
