As an effort to keep the group organized, I have added the names of the people participating. Of course, others are welcome to join. If you want to join and would like to have your name added to the thread name, just pm me :)
P.S - If you aren't my friend on Goodreads, you won't be able to message me. So you can just send me a fr then pm me or maybe drop a message on the moderators chat, where either I or Aarja will see it and edit :)
Happy reading <3

Priyansha (alphatype) | 90 comments how's it going Aarja?
Pretty good for me so far :)

also, can we pls decide on the no. chapters we'll be completing in two days ?
it'll be easier to discuss then..n having a target would make it better with my exams approaching..
xcuse me for my noobness.

Sure, we can! Today I wasn't able to read much, hopefully, I'll read at night, but how about we complete it till maybe chapters 8, 9 or 10? Let me know :)

Hmm, it's quite interesting and humorous, but not gripping or pacing :/

Yes it's humorous, made me laugh at certain chapters. But I think it's making me a slump. And not going anywhere, like they face obstacles and they are hungry, starting chapters were pretty good but yesterday I just could not invest myself in it.

That's so nice of you Priyansha. <3

I agree!! It has every fantasy creature and still it's less magical. If anyone of you have read LOTR then please say that's way better than this!!

Priyansha (alphatype) | 90 comments I haven't but I've heard my friends say that it's better
I so badly hope that it's true

Haha you didn't like it? Tolkien is very proficient in his world building, but his books can get so.. monotonous sometimes.
