Me!! I think I can do one at a time, but Six of Crows is my first choice and the Priory of the Orange Tree would be my second choice.

Is Monday ok for you? And how many chapters are we reading each day? I'm reading on my Kindle, so I can’t count them by pages, but it’s great that I finally get to read it with someone! ;)

Yeah, sure! We can do it your way, then. Read as much as we want, and keep it spoiler-free til the end. I can’t wait to start on Monday! ;)

Jadey (the Bookish) | 40 comments Would anyone be interested in reading The Diviners by Libba Bray with me? I'm completely flexible with time since I know there are quite a few buddy reads going on right now already, but I'd really like to read it in 2020 sometime and buddy reads are such a good motivator !!

If anyone's interested it might be nice to read it in a couple of months or something. Let me know! :)

@Jadey Yeah! The Diviners is on my TBR right now, but I don't have the physical book with me and it's not available in my country. I still haven't ordered it yet, but I'm not going to order the whole series until I finish the first book. So I guess a few months would be nice. :)

I'm still torn between Lady Midnight or The Diviners since I can only afford one book at the moment. Ahhhh this decision is eating me alive!!


message 32: by Raphaella (new)

Raphaella | 37 comments I'm all in for a Darker Shade of Magic, whenever you're ready guys


message 33: by Mahi (new)

Mahi | 114 comments I'm interested in The Diviners, but not sure about dates. Let me know when the date is fixed :)


message 34: by yanitta☏ (new)

yanitta☏ (yanitta) | 70 comments Mod
Have any of you read the Shadowhunters saga? I just ordered Lady Midnight (the first book in The Dark Artifices series), and I will be reading it as soon as it comes. It’s the last series I’ve haven’t read in The Shadowhunters saga.

Would any of you be interested in reading TDA with me? I plan to read it in about 2-3 weeks. I’m quite flexible with the time. If you’re interested, let me know!☺️


☀︎El In Oz☀︎ (elinoz) Ohhh TDA is soooooo good! Have fun reading it!


message 36: by Kamryn Bozeman (new)

Darcey | 179 comments anyone wanna buddy read the Scythe trilogy or Crier's War with me? i'm not fussed about when :))

— Massiel (rollitosdecanela) | 94 comments @Darce: I can read both with you! Are you okay if we read both in September?


message 39: by Darcey (new)

Darcey | 179 comments — Massiel wrote: "@Darce: I can read both with you! Are you okay if we read both in September?"

yeah that's perfect for me! how do you want to do this? read Crier's War first and then the Scythe trilogy (or vice versa) or read them both at the same time?


message 40: by — Massiel (new)

— Massiel (rollitosdecanela) | 94 comments @Darce: I just saw Crier's War's second book will be release in September so we can read Scythe first and then when Iron Heart comes out we can read it. Wanna start reading Scythe in the beginning of September or you have another date in mind?


message 41: by Esther (new)

Esther (estherfernndez) | 2 comments Hi!! Is anyone interested in reading The devouring gray or Crescent City (House of Earth and Blood) with me? :)

Raphaella | 37 comments @Wilybookwitch I am!


message 44: by Wilybookwitch (new)

Wilybookwitch @Branwenn Oh great! How about we start from Sept 1st week? You okay with it?


message 45: by Raphaella (new)

Raphaella | 37 comments I'm fine with the date, however I have some really big exams at that period so I might fall a bit behind. Not so that I won't be able to catch up but I'm just letting you know (besides I've avoided this series for far too long, lol)


message 46: by Wilybookwitch (new)

Wilybookwitch @Branwenn I am okay with any date too.how about you tell me when it's okay for you?


message 47: by Darcey (new)

Darcey | 179 comments heyo all, is any up for buddy reading book 3 of the Mistborn trilogy with me? The Hero of Ages? i really need to read it but i feel like i need someone to push me to read it :))


message 48: by — Massiel (new)

— Massiel (rollitosdecanela) | 94 comments @Darce: I'd love to join you but in October! I plan to read all mistborn series in October but not now :(

hell yeah Massiel babe, you know i'd love to buddy read this with you! October is totally fine with me :)) so you haven't read book 1&2 yet?
scythe, crier's war, and then this? x


message 50: by — Massiel (new)

— Massiel (rollitosdecanela) | 94 comments @Darce: You're so sweet, I love buddy reading with you too! And yes, I've read already the first book I haven't read the second tho :( so you will have to wait until I finish the second and we can read the rest of the series (I want to read the whole mistborn series 6 books)

And yes, I think we can buddy read two books at the same time so this month we could finish the first two books of Scythe and the third in October (Is taking us a long time to finish it HAHHA) and then Mistborn with Crier's War.

Are you okay with it? I know it must be a lot.
