    Well I have opened the book now but I don't think I am going to be finishing it. I can't get into it. It also has to be back today which is the other thing LOL. For some reason I only got a 2wk loan on it instead of a 4wk one. Probably cause it is a newer book. So I wont be rating this one as I really haven't had the time or read enough of it to give it a chance.

    I'm pretty happy about joining as well!! I'm a big reader and this will keep me motivated hehe and get me reading somethings I may not have normally read!

    It does seem rather interesting so far - I've only read about 20 or 30 pages but I'm finding the style of writing very different to say the least.

    Yes I think the style of writing is what turned me off. Just making it hard to follow

    CHAPTER ONE

    Not sure if any one is really reading the book this month especially with it being Christmas and all. But I've read the first chapter (which was rather long) and thought I would post. I've found the style of writing very hard to get into thought I'm not minding the storyline even if it is a tad confusing (or maybe it's just my baby brain LOL!). There are so many characters to keep up with though!! I'm going to keep reading and see how far I get through it!!

    LOL I don't think anyone is reading it this month!

    I'm determined to finish it hehe - I think I'm about half way through. It's really difficult to keep reading but at least the story line is decent! Can't wait till next months though!
