Deyara I'm crossing my fingers that I will get a seat in the train tomorrow - I am reading Partials with 210 pages to go :) Its pretty good, so its going quite quickly, I want to see what happens


message 14: by Lily (new)

Lily (lilithesque) That is on my to be read list. Good to hear its pretty good.


message 15: by Deyara (new)

Deyara Done, Hooray! I did enjoy it Lily, its not my favourite book but the ideas were interesting, and I think he did a pretty good job on the world-building. There were a few times I was reading, and something happened, and I thought, "Really?" but I was able to explain them to myself enough to continue :) Its hard to explain cause I dont want to spoil you!


message 16: by Lily (new)

Lily (lilithesque) WOW! We all completed! Im doing happy dance here in my office (in my mind anyway). I am smiling really smiling though.
