So I started reading a bit of today's chapters because it's after midnight and I couldn't wait 😅 I only read the first three.

Have any of you read Schwab's Savage song? It gives me that same vibe while listening to it, which is a good sign. Also, the MC does something maybe not the same as the MC in Savage song, but close enough. The concept of Histories and Keepers is intriguing so I'm looking forward to finding out more tomorrow.


Laura ☾ | 1003 comments I will start later!

Yes I have read both This Savage Song and the sequel! Ooh that’s intriguing


Laura ☾ | 1003 comments Chapter 6 - (view spoiler) HAhahahah I died!

Chapter 9 - (view spoiler)

Ok I'm already at the halfway point and might continue today as I don't think I'll have much time to read tomorrow!

Chapter 24 (view spoiler)

So I don't know why, but I thought her parents bought an old hotel or something, and that the whole building is theirs so that she can freely explore. Sneaking out became more complicated.

The thing I mentioned that is like in Savage song, is that Mac also imagines another her that's different and normal. I like that :D

Also, Wes yes! It's adorable I'm glad she won't be that alone in her Keeper business.

I'm intrigued about the murder.
I have yet to read something that Schwab wrote and I didn't like, but I think I especially enjoy her YA books that are not the typical YA.

I've read 17 chapters. I wanted to read more but I got distracted and watched some yt videos, so I'm just going to go read my other buddy read now.


Laura ☾ | 1003 comments Ooh yes! I’ve also I liked all of Schwab’s books. Have you read the Near Witch?

No, that one and The Archived series books are the only ones I still haven't read, but I'm at least fixing one of those :D I'm surely going to get to it eventually.


Laura ☾ | 1003 comments I actually really enjoyed it!

So I finished the book and I really enjoyed it!

Will you be reading the rest of the series too?

Yes, that's the plan. You wanna read it now, I mean soon after this book?


Laura ☾ | 1003 comments Yes! I’m pretty tied up in terms of buddy reads until mid-month but maybe then?

If you plan on reading it I'm in. And yeah, mid-month sounds great because I too have a lot of BRs in the first half of the month.

Perfect!

I finished it too. I enjoyed it quite a lot.

Yeah, the kissing with Owen was a bit surprising, but I guess I understand her. She's constantly surrounded by noise she can't keep out so when she discovered he's keeping the sounds out *shrugs* he was really tempting. Him turning out to be the bad guy is quite cliche, but since it's Schwab it's okay 😂


Laura ☾ | 1003 comments Yes! I’m curious to see how the second book will go

Cat | Bookocraze (bookocraze) | 181 comments Hey there! I finished the book a couple hours ago (I was late because I was so busy these past couple days *sigh*) but wow! I read over 50% in just one sitting!

I must admit that at first I thought Wes was the bad guy, haha. He was just too cheerful for me, so *naturally* I thought he was a fake. :D

Yeah, he was friendly and that brings up some alarms. My first thought of him was that he was a History xD
