@ollie: hun, this would go in extras since this is promotion. I'll have to delete it and replace it in the extras.


Ollie | 14 comments Hi Mariya,

haha. I'll be quite occupied this week. I wish Borders and B&N were like Amazon were Amazon ships your order a couple days early if you select 2 days shipping and wouild get on the release date. the other don't. UGH. I got 2 day shipping from Borders and I am not confident it will arrive until the weekend.

I am curious to what will happen in this book.


valee Me too, and I'm terribly scared because many rated it only 4 stars... **sniff**


Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) | 594 comments Mod
I'm now wondering why 4 stars, what aspect wasn;t liked....hmmm...I know it will be quite different since Cat is an actual vamp now. I heard more Vlad! Yah! for Vlad!

I love Vlad as well lol


Francesca the Fierce (Under the Covers Book Blog) | 1 comments I love Vlad, and I'm sure there will be quite a bit of him since she's gotta be setting up the storyline for Vlad's spin-off series!


Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) | 594 comments Mod
OMFG. they now say my book is on backorder. UGH. I may just cancel it and go to the bookstore today to pick it up.

What?? From where? Did you use amazon this time?
I preordered TSOTG and 3 others from amazon that will all be here today.


Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) | 594 comments Mod
From Borders b/c I had a coupon. I'm heading there today to check out the big sale b/c their closing down, so I'll probaly pick up a copy there. Next time I'll just go Amazon, but I wanted to use the coupon so, whtever.


Marissa (millionmph) Aww, that stinks. Well, I hope you find some really good deals in the store!


Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) | 594 comments Mod

Yui (_yui_) | 9 comments I forgot to preorder this:-(
I received my iron crowned by R.Mead feb 18(too early) I was supposed to preorder that day and then reread the last 4 Cat&Bones books and listen to DFAEG but because Dark Swan came early I got distracted. I just remembered yesterday and I ordered it at once but it's still on shipping soon:-(

I can't wait anymore..

valee hahaha, exactly. Forget about the coupon.


Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) | 594 comments Mod
I have self control. haha. Well, we'll see how that goes when I walk into Borders today.


message 29: by Dinjolina (new) - added it

Dinjolina I kind of think of us as little devils on your shoulder going 'buy it now!' :D


Marissa (millionmph) Its okay, Mariya. You wont be the only one waiting. Todays my moms bday and she wanted to read it first, so I wont be able to read this for probably at least a week!

That's pretty impressive self control if you don't buy it. I thought I was doing well by waiting until after work. I had thought about calling in to be at the store when they opened. ; )


message 32: by Mimi (new) - rated it 4 stars

Mimi Smith Yep, read it and would give it 4 stars too.
It was good, but I didn't ADORE it like I did the others...


message 33: by Laurielu (last edited Feb 23, 2011 07:10AM) (new) - rated it 5 stars

Laurielu Bona Fide Reflections Oh my.... I am very jealous of Cat. I want to be her because I want Bones! I am really enjoying this book! I am just 23% through the book, though. Will have to see why most reviews gave the book 4 stars instead of 5.


Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) | 594 comments Mod
Okaiexz so I'm 30% through and I am beginning to think that (view spoiler) Hope to get more done tomorrow.

Yeah I understand why many rated it 4*.The book was highly anticipated for over a year or so and I think the plot wasn't as developed as recent books, so didn't deliver as much. I loved the way she built characters (esp Mencheres and Vlad) as well as Cat, boy has she grown from the first book.


Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) | 594 comments Mod
I am halfway through it now and I am seeing that I may be giving TSOTG a 4 stars also.


message 37: by Luz (last edited Feb 23, 2011 01:21PM) (new) - rated it 4 stars

Luz | 1 comments I enjoyed the book; always need my Cat and Bones fix but it's not my favorite of the books. Would give it 4 stars.


Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) | 594 comments Mod
I am glad I'm not the only one. I never thought the day would come where I wouldn't really like a Cat and Bones book that much.


message 39: by Dija (new) - rated it 4 stars

Dija Ugh, I just got my copy of TSOTG, but I'm anxious about starting it now. I tend to be highly critical, I hope I don't rate this book below 3 stars. :(

I don't think so. The book was good, just not up to my own Cat&Bones standards. It just felt slightly off, like the plot didn't hold me impatient to read the next page...and the next...
If the 1st book was like this I never would have become such a fan...


message 41: by Lynn (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lynn Hammons (lynn42272) | 9 comments Just finished TSOTG and I am kinda bummed! The love scene in no way compares to chapter 32 and I have to agree if I had read this one first I would not have become such a fan. It is still good but just not her best!!!!!

Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) | 594 comments Mod
I agree I thought that the storyline/plot of the story was really good, but when reading it I felt like that Cat and Boens Spark was gones/missing. And I actually liked Chapter 32 better than Chapter 21.


Laurielu Bona Fide Reflections I have seen references to chapter 32 in a few posts. What does it mean?

Big Chapter with a great sex scene, the whole entire chapter is a sex scene.

I agreee, the scene was good but it did not compare to Ch.32!!


Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) | 594 comments Mod
One Foot in the Grave. It is being talked about in this thread b/c of another chapter that compares to Chapter 32 in This Side of the Grave.

Yes!I just could on put my finger on the problem till now.
Like when Cat has problems with the new weird Mari blood that makes her control people.And Bones just laughs all the way. Not with her. At her. Hahaha,you loooooooser. And I was-huh?


Elsie (aussiemom2) | 4 comments I've finished! Over too soon and can't wait to discuss!


Gyn  (gynh) | 3 comments I just finished TSOTG and I definitely agree on the lack of spark/tension/anticipation...but I enjoyed having some more time with Cat and Bones nonetheless! And FYI, I don't think anything can compare with Chapter 32! I bought a shirt about Chapter 32 and recently wore it to meet Jeaniene Frost! Such Fun!
