Your doing very well this month Kayla!! Keep it up :)

I'm also reading Entwined by Heather Dixon and really enjoying it and will be starting Of Neptune (The Syrena Legacy, #3) by Anna Banks in a day or two! Don't forget to post your points!!!

message 13: by Tea (new)

Tea | 51 comments I finished 3 books so far. Might even review some (Though I don't really like this month's series :( )


message 14: by Kayla (new)

Kayla (kaylawrites89) | 157 comments It's alright, Tea. :) Just do what you can and give us what you want. Hopefully there will be a series from next month you enjoy. :)

Hey!! How is everyone doing?? I have to say I'm not doing too great but next month looks really promising :)


message 16: by Kayla (new)

Kayla (kaylawrites89) | 157 comments I just started reading Of Neptune and I'm already 11 chapters in. I'm kind of speed reading, but that's because I want to get to the good parts. I'm also over halfway through Entwined and I'm loving it. I've stopped reading Scarlet though, but I did finished Red Queen which was SOOOOO good.


message 17: by Tea (new)

Tea | 51 comments I think I'll start one of the bonus books now, and maybe read Of Triton and Of Neptune (since those are quite fast reads)


message 18: by Maaya (new)

Maaya | 24 comments Genre books:

Gilded Ashes: 2 Points
Cruel Beauty: 6 Points
A Court of Thorns and Roses: 8 Points
Total: 16 Points


message 19: by Tea (new)

Tea | 51 comments I've just read Of Triton, but I'm on my phone, so I can't edit my post (just posting in case I forget later)
so that would be five more points
