I never thought I would make it here: college. I’m finally free of stalkers. I am free to live a normal, happy life. Going to parties and making friends. The best part is, I’m finally safe. Or so I thought.

My world comes crashing down around me when I start receiving mysterious gifts. Somebody is out for revenge and I will figure out who.

I’m not the same girl I was last year. I refuse to be a victim.

Welcome to my college life.

The College Life is book 1 in Kihanna in College.

 Lissa Smith Reads'~A Bookaholics Bookshelf (lissasmithreads) Never did a buddy read before but I want to read this one. I think I already have it. How does the buddy read work?


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 84101 comments Mod
Basically we just read the book at the same time, and then comment on here with your thoughts as you go along - a bit like status updates, and then we'll all sort of discuss it ☺ You can hide spoilers by typing <.spoiler.> without the dots to appear like this - (view spoiler)

I read the first couple of chapters last night, I thought the author did a good job of recapping the previous books because I didn't feel like I was missing anything.

Yeah, she has done a good job with that. I'm finding the story boring so far though.

Tati | 10171 comments Can I read this without having read the previous series?


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 84101 comments Mod
I didn't read the previous series. The author does a pretty good job of recapping who everyone is and stuff so I didn't feel like I was missing out.


message 34: by Tati (new)

Tati | 10171 comments Ah, okay :)

After Shadow Study, I thought it was better to ask

I did pause after I read the 'read the previous series' comment at the start, but it was alright without. it seems like Kihanna had had some troubles in the previous books, but they were recapped too. I'm glad I didn't read the previous series in fact because I didn't really like this one.

rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments I'll try and make up for this next month. Sorry I didn't get around to it!
