Now, let's discuss what you read during the week, Half-Blood, Chapters 1-11.
Here's what I thought about the chapters I read so far:
My favorite parts included Alex meeting up with all the other half-bloods again. That scene with Lea was hilarious! Also, Caleb! I love that boy! His friendship with Alex was one of the highlights of this series. Deacon is great, too. It was interesting learning about the Covenant and the laws and ways of the Pures and Half-Bloods. These chapters introduce you to a lot of issues that become significant as the series progresses and I noticed a lot of details that I didn't the first time around. It was cool seeing Alex build her strength and skills up again, after being away from the Covenant for so long. Let's not forget about Aiden!!!! Oh, that man sure knows how to make me swoon! If I'm sore, can you rub some of that salve on me, please, Aiden?!
Thank you all for your feedback on Daimon. I loved all your responses about the book. Here's what some readers had to say:
Borghild says "...when she kicked the minister, that was so funny. And it's really great to see her strong relationship with her mother, and how much she loves her. Alex is also my favorite female character ever, and thats much because of her snark, humor, and strength."
Mary Perez says "It created a sense of mystery and intrigue and makes me wanna continue reading onto Half-Blood."
Dana Cuadrado says "I have already read books 1-4 but never read the novellas. I am never one to read the .5 or 3.5 type of books. I just want to read the main story where all the action is and I realized that I was missing out!! I loved being back in the Covenant world and reading from Alex's perspective. Daimon answered so many questions about what happened before Half-Blood and how Alex's mother died."
Jess @ Jesus Freak Reader says "I love every moment that she thought of Aiden and his eyes."
Livia Nowlin's fave quote - "It's on like Donkey Kong."
Malia's fave quote - "Whatever! Go save a dolphin or something!" Matt: "It's a whale, Alex, a whale!"
Be sure to come back here next Friday 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 Chapters 12-21 of Half-Blood.
So what did you think of the book so far?
