I read Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher . I picked it up at the library at lunch time today, and I just finished it. It's a quick read, for those of you looking for "a book you can read in a day". I'm gonna have to sleep on it before I can rate and review it, though. It's already way past my bed time.


message 25: by Justine (new)

Justine (justinen) Just finished Arena One (The Survival Trilogy, #1) by Morgan Rice and I really liked it. My only issue is book two is half the size and $4.99 for an eBook :0 GONNA check at the library and see if maybe I can get it there.

The guys in this group love that series. I can't get interested in it for some reason but glad you are loving it.

A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird, #1) by Claudia Gray is starting off real slow for me so I'm not sure if I'll keep reading it or pick something else up for the challenge. I've had First Grave on the Right (Charley Davidson, #1) by Darynda Jones forever so I might pick that up *shrugs*

I'm about to finish 314 by A.R. Wise . It's OK but had a lot of potential that I'm really not seeing. It was a freebie so that is good but I really wanted to love this one.

No Sylvia, we can't. That's OK though. It isn't horrible but it's not great either. I did however just finish a fantastic one. The Girl in 6E (Deanna Madden, #1) by A.R. Torre was fabulous.

I saw that you loved this book! I think my sister in law read this and loved it too

This was actually on my TBR list, and found free for my Kindle. I liked it, but I def didnt love it. I think I was expecting something like Divergent, and it doesn't live up to that.
Agree that its a read in one day book though
