I hope to start it this weekend! Work, and life in general, has been crazy so I haven't been reading as much


message 17: by NataliaVictoria (new)

NataliaVictoria | 6 comments Agreed - idk if I’ll be able to start this weekend, I have like a billion articles to read and reread for a project, but hopefully I can squeeze time in next week. Ill just check this again whenever I start for your guys’ thoughts & everything.

message 21: by Jaya (new)

Jaya (jaya_08) | 59 comments That's great Brittany, I am 15% into the book and I am thoroughly enjoying it.Looking forward for your thoughts .


message 22: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 4415 comments Mod
I'm only like 3% in so no opinion from me so far.
Glad you are enjoying it Jaya! What stands out for you so far?


message 23: by Kayleigh {K-Books}, YA Fantasy Fan (new)

Kayleigh {K-Books} (kayley_12) | 1841 comments Mod
I'm starting this tonight.


message 24: by Jaya (new)

Jaya (jaya_08) | 59 comments I was intrigued by the story from the very first chapter. I am enjoying V.E Schwab's writing.

I first thought change in timelines may be a bummer but I haven't encountered any such problem so far. Also,I have got so many questions.

I really want to know what caused such a major drift between Victor and Eli? And why exactly Victor landed up in penitentiary?What are Victor,Eli and Sydney's power?

I forgot how much I loved this book! I’m completely sucked in again and I feel like I’ve forgotten so much!


message 29: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 4415 comments Mod
I haven't read much yet. Only up to chapter 4, 5.7% in. It has an intriguing premise so far but I don't know enough yet to have an opinion. Time jumps depend how well they are done for me so we will see how it goes.

Jaya (jaya_08) | 59 comments I just completed chapter 24 of part 1,and holy crap this book keep getting better, so much has happened.

Up to chapter 9 of part 2, 59.5%. I still don't particularly like any of the characters. Not to say I dont enjoy the story but still. (view spoiler)

Kayleigh {K-Books} (kayley_12) | 1841 comments Mod
I’ve finished re-reading Vicious. I’m going to carry on and read Vengeful as that’s another series off my list.


message 42: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 4415 comments Mod
I finished it and really enjoyed the story and was totally sucked in by the end, even if I figured out the plan, but still did not love the characters.
I will absolutely read Vengeful but as the library only as it in audio it will be a little bit before I get there. Might be able to fit it in by the end of July.
So let's keep this thread going and get some thoughts on the second one!

What did you think of Vicious upon reread Kay?


message 43: by Jaya (new)

Jaya (jaya_08) | 59 comments I finished Vicious. I loved how fast paced and engaging this book was all credits to Schwab's writing style .
The characters were definitely awful and deeply flawed .I kind of like Sydney and Mitch and root for them more than the main characters.

I would also like to hop on the wagon and read vengeful.I am mostly like to pick it in around mid July.

Kayleigh {K-Books} (kayley_12) | 1841 comments Mod
I still enjoyed it on the re-read but I think I enjoyed it more on my first read through. For me I don't feel overly connected with many characters so I think already knowing what was going to happen took away my enjoyment slightly. I have started reading Vengeful and I'm really enjoying it. Maybe for me this is a great series that I enjoy but not one to re-read.


message 45: by Teodora (new)

 Teodora  | 359 comments I am so ready for Vengeful!
Schwab definitely has an intense and complicated mind and all the books I read from her are fast-paced (like insanely action-packed) and the characters have flaws that they are really not trying to hide.

@Kayleigh I do believe that Schwab's books are meant to be read only once because after re-reading they lose the initial intensity and the element of surprise

Kayleigh {K-Books} (kayley_12) | 1841 comments Mod
I definitely agree in respects to her adult books. I've re-read one of her YA books and enjoyed it just as much the second time around.


message 47: by Kayleigh {K-Books}, YA Fantasy Fan (new)

Kayleigh {K-Books} (kayley_12) | 1841 comments Mod
So....... I’m kinda tempted to DNF Vengeful. I don’t know whether it’s coz I’m in a reading rut or something but I’ve been reading it over a week and I’m only 200 pages in. I’m so sad as I loved Vicious but I’m so bored :(


message 48: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 4415 comments Mod
Oh no! That doesn't sound good at all. Maybe take a break and read something short and go back to it?


message 49: by Kayleigh {K-Books}, YA Fantasy Fan (new)

Kayleigh {K-Books} (kayley_12) | 1841 comments Mod
That’s what I was thinking. I’m super sad coz I loved the first book. I might try a short read and go back to it. If this rut continues I’ll never get to Empire of Gold 😂

Brittany | 4415 comments Mod
Hahaha! At least you have your copy! I still don't know where mine is
