I'm excited for them...just to join the party. But I can't read them without reading their previous books. andiamsuchashamefullyslowreader.

Oh Christina, I'm with Kimba and could sit here staring at those covers & getting *drool* all over my keyboard. I WANT THEM ALL *cue maniacal book-addict laughter* mwha ha ha ha!!! ;D

Obviously, one of us is going to have to win the lottery then share with the others because I MUST read these - especially Outpost, Shadows and Dance of the Red Death <3

I am waiting on Shadows! Thank goodness I only discovered Ashes recently, so I haven't had to wait so long for the sequel! I haven't read the others, but I'm sure I will get to them! My daughter liked Across the Universe.

Breaking Point, Scarlet and Fuse are all ones that I am pining to read! The first books were all some of my favorites of this year

Dearly, Beloved, Scarlet, Fuse and Rebel Heart! I've been meaning to read Article 5 and Birthmarked but never got around to it. >.>

Scarlet! I am SO excited. When ARCs of that start going out and I inevitably don't get one, I will WEEP tears of blood. Or, you know, not. BUT STILL.

Rot & Ruin is good fun!

I doubt many people have read the first books for ALL of them. This is my genre, yo!

I cannot wait for Through the Ever Night! I can't believe there are so many books on this list that I haven't read the first for. So much to read, not enough time.

Right? I read so much and yet my to read pile is inconquerable!

It is badass! Now I have to read the prequel ebooks first! Since I have to wait at least a month to get here.
I hope it doesn't get lost in transit. *sigh*

The ARCs are out there, but only for a precious few. Note: I am not precious. lol.

PREQUEL EBOOKS. *smashes tables, chairs, vases, anything in the vicinity*

Those make me SO DAMN MAD. I want to read them, but I'm not going to be 5 bucks or whatever for ebooks, when ebooks feel fake to me. They should just make them into an actual book so I can borrow it at the damn library. Besides, the few ebook prequels or novellas I've gotten free and read have been marginally good at best. I HATE THIS TREND.

Blogger Lilian said...

I agree! I guess it's a great way for authors to earn money for the scraps and pieces that didn't make the cut for print. (which would totally explain the "marginally good" part)

I need to get to reading Dan Well's Isolation soon, it's a prequel novella for Partials. And while I wasn't too pleased with the John Cleaver series, I still have hope for the Partials series.

It's not so much the price, but it's just my laziness when it comes to ebooks.

As for borrowing it from the library...*thinks of Free Four...which was like four pages* waste of paper and ink?

Blogger Christina said...

Right? Ugh. If they're free on Kindle to drum up interest, I am cool with it. As a promotion, all good. As a way to make me spend money on something subpar, WRATH.

I still need to read Partials.

Oh man, I download SO MANY free Kindle books and haven't read a single one thus far.

Well, if the library had digital options or something. I am not surprised that Free Four was shitty.
