What is a buddy read?

Synopsis

The Shadow Fold, a swathe of impenetrable darkness, crawling with monsters that feast on human flesh, is slowly destroying the once-great nation of Ravka.

Alina, a pale, lonely orphan, discovers a unique power that thrusts her into the lavish world of the kingdom’s magical elite—the Grisha. Could she be the key to unravelling the dark fabric of the Shadow Fold and setting Ravka free?

The Darkling, a creature of seductive charm and terrifying power, leader of the Grisha. If Alina is to fulfill her destiny, she must discover how to unlock her gift and face up to her dangerous attraction to him.

But what of Mal, Alina’s childhood best friend? As Alina contemplates her dazzling new future, why can’t she ever quite forget him?

Glorious. Epic. Irresistible. Romance.

Cynthia (cynthiab) I'm reading it earlier than 12/28. It's a library book and it's due well before that.


Nicole Field (nicolefield) | 1778 comments Hey Cynthia I had the same problem. If you are ready to read the second book in a couple of weeks, definitely let me know!


Cynthia (cynthiab) I'm going to read the first one on vacation. I put in a request for the 2nd book today. I'm the next on the list, so I should have it when I get back home.


Nicole Field (nicolefield) | 1778 comments Yaay! Looking forward to it.


Cynthia (cynthiab) I'm reading this one today, and picking up Siege and Storm tomorrow. I'd love to see this turned into a series read.

Sydney | 92 comments I am about half way through the book. I was confused in the beginning, but some of it is starting to make sense now.


Sydney | 92 comments I just finished. I really liked the book. It was different from the other books that I have read recently. It will be interesting to see what the plots will be for the other two books.

This was me through a lot of the book :). I started being able to follow better I'd say about halfway.


CassieV | 1196 comments I'm half and half on this book. I get Pigletto's problems with the book, and over all I'd say I agree. The world building just wasn't at the depth I would have hoped for. (Major spoiler -->) (view spoiler).

That being said, I also wouldn't say I didn't like this book, because I did. It sucked me in just like sugery chick-lit does. So, I gave it three stars.

Just think of it as chick-lit fantasy ;). Not quite fantasy, not quite chick-lit.

I think that's my problem with these type of books. I like fantasy but I'm not a fan of chick-lit.

HaHa! I promise I won't! In fact, I realized the audio is actually a chapter behind, so my Chapter 14 was really Chapter 13.. but I'm getting there slowly but surely!
