Dark Elements Read-Along Wrap Up


Well, that was quick!

I'm so sad to see that this series is over. Did everyone get a chance to read ELB yet? I hope everyone loved it.

I'm a little disappointed in myself when it came to this read-along because I know I wasn't as involved as I wanted to be. Things just kind of got in the way in my own life and I just couldn't dedicate as much time as I wanted to it. I hope everyone understands. I want to thank everyone who signed up and participated. Whether it was one week, or all 8 weeks, I was happy to have you along for the ride.

Did you all have fun reading or rereading the books? How about those trivia questions? For some reason, I found it harder to come up with the questions this time around. There just wasn't enough "quick and easy" material to work with and I didn't want people spending too much time writing page-long essays, so I tried to find a good balance.

Anyways, we had 48 people sign up, which isn't bad, and about half of those who did manage to keep up with the questions each week, which is great. Now it's time to announce the winners:

- SIGNED copy of Every Last Breath (US & Intl): Bilge & Anna
- SIGNED copy of Scorched (US Only): Jaslyn
- SIGNED copy of Fall With Me (US Only): Brielle
- SIGNED swag packs (US & Intl): Sona & Chelsea
- ebook of Half-Blood: Sharon
- ebook of Forever With You: Fatima

I hope you all enjoyed the read-along and please join in me in all my future read-alongs, because you know Jen will keep pumping out those books! Join the Deity Island Read-Along FB group today!

Some loves will last ‘til your dying breath

Every choice has consequences—but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.

Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin—the deadliest of demons—has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.

Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell…

Dark Elements Read-Along: Week Eight


Welcome to Week EIGHT (that last week!!!) of The Dark Elements Read-Along. I can't believe yet another read-along has come and gone. I'm so excited for Every Last Breath!

If you want to know more about the Read-Along, sign up for it, and get all the details, check out this page here. You'll find links to all the weekly posts on that page, too.

REMEMBER: In order to be eligible for the prizes, you must SIGN UP and then answer the questions via the Google Form below.

For updates and to chat with other participants, join the Deity Island Read Alongs Facebook Group. There will a lot of fun things happening there!

Also, use #DarkElementsReadAlong to follow along on Twitter.

There are TWO forms below for you to fill out, one regarding the last few chapters we all read in Stone Cold Touch and the other for your thoughts on the Read-Along as a whole. I'd love to know your feedback and thoughts on this. I'll have the WRAP-UP post up some time next Monday (although I'll probably contact the winners before then to get names and details for personalization of books), after I tally up the results, work out all the prize details, and tie up loose ends.

REMEMBER: You only have until July 24th to answer this and any of the other questions you may have missed. Sorry that the time is cramped for the last set of questions, but I'll definitely need enough time to tally up results for the trivia questions and such.

EDIT: I've extended the deadline until Thursday, July 30th. I hope that's enough time for everyone to finish reading and answer all the trivia questions.






If you have any questions, just let me know in the comments or email me. I'll discuss all my thoughts and anything else I have to say in the WRAP-UP post. See you then!

Thank you all for your feedback on the chapters read. I loved all your responses about the book. Here's what some readers had to say:

Susan Knoell says "Roth completely breaks Layla's heart as if he is pushing her towards Zayne, but then he is all jealous like when she is actually spending time with him. I love how Layla reacts when Roth shows up at school and tries to be all chummy with her. She is so fiery and you know it turns him on."

Jaslyn v says "I am really not looking forward to seeing Zayne "

Sona Dasgupta says "Action, Mystery, Lust, passion, Tearful reunion, broken hearts, secrets, jealousy and don't forget the freaking angstrom....These chapters were fully packed to erase your memory and lobotomize it with layla's world...."

How about you?

Be sure to come back here next Monday to discuss the chapters we read and answer some questions for your chance at winning some pretty cool prizes!

Next up, we'll be reading Stone Cold Touch, Chapters 24-35.



See you all next week. Happy reading!
