Hey! I just so happened to pick up this book at the same time you guys are reading it so I'll join if it's fine :D

I don't have chapter numbers but I'm around the 15% mark !


Alex (The Scribe Owl) | 234 comments Hey guys! I had borrowed a copy of this from the library, but my loan ran out and I missed the renew window. I have a new hold, but odds are I won't get it in time. Im so sorry to miss it, but maybe I can join in later!


Hafsah (pretentiouspolyglot) | 113 comments Aw Alex that's so sad! Was looking forward to buddy reading another book with you :(

It's okay though, you can always join us when you do get a hold of your copy!!!

Michelle (shelbrenn) | 266 comments I went on a beach trip so I have finished it already.
It was slow to build up for sure. I love the descriptive writing and the setting in New Orleans. Celine is a strong female character with a questionable past. The change in voice from 3rd to 1st, wonder who the vampire is??


Hafsah (pretentiouspolyglot) | 113 comments I didn't like Celine for the most part??
And the fact that the book being vampire themed the vampires made a late appearance..


Alex (The Scribe Owl) | 234 comments Guess whose copy just came!!

Alex (The Scribe Owl) | 234 comments Done! Final thoughts:

- Sloooow pacing
- Bastian <3 except for that one weird scene
- I loved the setting in New Orleans!
- Good ending + cliffhanger - I'm totally going to read the next one this month! Anyone else in?
- Vampires?? Where?

Laura ☾ | 1002 comments Ah I didn't realise there was a buddy read going on for this!

I would join you guys if you read the sequel!


Hafsah (pretentiouspolyglot) | 113 comments If you haven't already read the sequel, Alex and I were planning to read it some time late this month x

Yeah I’d be in!


Michelle (shelbrenn) | 266 comments I would love to read the next one too!


Hafsah (pretentiouspolyglot) | 113 comments The more the merrier!!!
I don't think we have a thread yet but we're starting on the 17th if that works for you x


Michelle (shelbrenn) | 266 comments The 17th works for me
