No way does this ever happen that I am the first one....hehe!
Oh crap I don't really have anything to say!
Fallen thanks for the input, I will let you know what I think of Spark later, he was just introduced in the series.
Abbey glad I am not the only one that is thinking "get on with it already" starting to remind me of the Pretty Little Liars series.....blah blah on and on and on with no real "stuffing inside" and then that series had the worst ending ever, all 8 books and I could sum up everything in probably 2 books...ugh waste of time. Okay btw in HON4 on page 12 of the hardback...Zoey makes a new word "pissed-off-ness" and I thought of our badassness...how cool is that.

BC- Hi! So today is my sisters birthday, she's 12 years old now =P Her "boyfriend" *rolls eyes* gave her a "real" ring (not believing it, trust me when her finger turns green, then we'll know who's the right one). I gave her a gift card to Hollister, which was only $30 so I don't know what she could possibly get there lol a t-shirt, maybe? I also went to the signing and met James Dashner. He was super nice and really funny, but he wouldn't stop talking to my dad uh.. men. lol But yeah, it was awesome when he read the first page in the Scorch Trails to us and when we took pictures. Anyway I finished Torment today which was awesome! That's all I'll say lol I had fun at the creative writing class today, and I also started reading The Lost Hero. The Lost Hero doesn't begin like the other two series he's made, but it still starts with a bang, which I am happy about. Oh and before I forget isn't today the day to talk about The Hollow? I didn't read it cause of Crescendo and all the others books at the time, but just wanted to say that just incase if some people forgot it was today. Well I am going to read some more. Bye!

Guess Lexie beat me to putting up the schedule
BC- So I was just at the bookstore and they already had copies of Crescendo out on the shelves. It looks pretty and maybe for xmas I'll ask for the hardcover finished copy since I just have the ARC of it.
So I'm actually starting to enjoy Wings, it's growing on me. Have to see how I like it by the end.

Lexie - That's awesome that you got to meet James Dashner! I loved The Maze Runner...and I just got The Scorch Trials in the mail yesterday...I'm so excited to start it!
BC - Totally forgot yesterday was the day to discuss The Hollow. ***SPOILERS*** First of all, I loved the main character's name (lol) and I loved the setting. What better setting for a ghost story do you need than Sleepy Hollow? Having said that though, I was kinda disappointed. The whole story pretty much just follows Abbey through her everyday life after Kristen dies. Nothing really exciting ever happens. She has a few encounters with Caspian, many of which left me with unanswered questions...like why could Caspian only kiss her and touch her on that one day? Also, why doesn't Caspian like that old ghost couple (forgot their names) that lives in the woods outside the cemetery, when he, too, is a ghost? Then, the whole thing with the uncertainty of Kristen's death kinda irritates me...they kinda gave up on finding out anything about what happened. And who the heck is D? Usually, I don't mind a longer book, but this one just seemed to drag on...we had to follow Abbey through the most mundane things that she did every day. (BTW, it's wierd writing about a character with the same name as me lol) Anyway, I give this book 3/5...it was good, it just wasn't fantastic. I'm hoping The Haunted will be better and clear up some of my questions. I thought I was gonna have a hard time waiting for The Haunted to come out in paperback (because it has to match my paperback of The Hollow, of course...OCD again lol), but I don't think it will be a problem...I can wait. Wow, I just reread through what I wrote, and it sounds really harsh. It really wasn't a horrible book, there were just some things that really frustrated me.

Hope everthing is going okay for yall. Okay I've started HON5 and I got the last hero, so I'm kind of out of the loop....I cant believe Cresendo is out already!!!!!!!!!!
I love the Fall and winter more time to read, the weather is great to read outside too, not to cold or to hot!!!!!!!!!!!
Talk to yallz laterz

BC- I spent the morning reading my sociology book and even though we kinda want to talk about more books lately I don't think you all want to hear about my textbook.
Even though Nick is already on HON5 I think I'll wait to read the 6th one with the rest of you ladies.
Happy Friday Everyone!

Abbey-I am reading The Hollow I have figured out what it going to happen it is just really long i think. i have never read a book this long! i went on the website and found that they sell the perfumes well 3 of them that she makes. they have some cool things on there. also if you go to the website you can get free goodies. i don't know what they are but all you do is enter your email and address and they send you a confirmation email and tell you to look in your mail box. oh yeah the website is on the back of the book jessicaverday.com. by what you wrote i am taking it that you are going to read the haunted?
10-15-2010 09:57 PM
BC- Ok guys I finished torment a few hours ago and all im going to say right now is that im kinda disappointed and excited. lol
10-15-2010 10:16 PM
Korts - Yeah...I'm definitely gonna read The Haunted...I'll probably wait until it comes out in paperback before I read it though. I visited Jessica Verday's website today, too...I looked at the perfume stuff and thought it was pretty cool! I really like her website...I love the layout and all the cool stuff she has on it!
