Trisha (trishabisen) | 2014 comments This thread is to discuss House of Earth and Blood, the first book in the Crescent City Series by Sarah J. Maas.

Pages: 803 pages

Length: 1 Month (June)

Participants: Ruthie, Dominique, SarahKat.

Everyone reads at their own pace during a Buddy Read. Because participants can be at different parts of the book at different times, it is extremely important to mark spoilers so that the book is not ruined for someone who is not as far along as others!!!

Mark spoilers by placing {spoiler} before the text and {/spoiler} after the text but use the < and > instead of the { and }.


Happy Buddy Reading!

Ruthie (ruthieram_reads) | 985 comments Hey Dominique and SarahKat! I actually read this in May but I kept detailed notes of what I thought of it and parts I liked so I can still discuss as you guys go along if you update where you're at on here.

I gave it 5 stars and I love Sarah J Maas books so I'm excited to hear what y'all think of it

SarahKat | 2835 comments Maas is a guilty pleasure author for me. I have a hold coming through on the 30th and I usually get through her books pretty fast.

Glad you kept notes Ruthie!
