Today's guest post comes from our good friend Amber at Me, My Shelf and I. Amber brings the fun to every function she attends and today is no exception. Thank you, Amber, for joining us on the Shade Series Read-Along! (Click here for read-along reading schedule.)
When Kilt and Keeley came to me and asked if I would participate in the Shade Series Read-A-Long, I said AYE! I very rarely have the time to reread any of my favorite books, and a read along was a great way to do so!! NOTE: This post is NOT spoiler free!
I’m kicking things off with Chapter 1-11 of SHADE.
I would like to point out that SHADE is the first book in the series. While you might know this, when I started the series myself last year, I did not. So I started with SHIFT, was horribly confused and after asking my friend Jen (of Kilt and Keeley, in fact) I was then horribly embarrassed. Though, we continue to have a a good laugh over the whole situation each time we meet at the pub for an ale.
Since we all kind of get to do our own thing (I think) with our chapters, I’m going to throw you some discussion questions, and give you my answers on them as well. Respond with your answers in the comments! I’ll be checking them through out the day, and will responds when I can!!
This is not as easy as you might think to answer. I always thought that it might be cool to have this ability, but when you see how totally annoyed Aura is with the disemboweled (ew!) woman in the office – you have to think “Could I do that all day every day?” I mean, seeing them – yea ok I could do that as long as they weren’t sneaking up on me or anything…but hearing them…all day….everyday. My head spins at the thought. I can’t even handle the constant chatter of my 3 year old for more than 5 minutes straight before I start to get an eye twitch. So I would have to choose Team Pre-Shifter, I had too and call Aura’s abilities: Totally Annoying.
I’m sorry, but totally a dick move made by a coward! Yeah, he died, but it’s not like in their world the living interacting with the dead is all that weird. I get he needed some time, but it was like a week or more. He didn’t go see Aura or even his little brother….he could have popped in to say he was taking some time. They thought he was gone for good, could you imagine being Aura during this time! Then when he does come back he does it AT his funeral, and well that didn’t go very well. Ugh, I kind of want to beat the ectoplasma out of him now that I’m typing all this out.
100millionbillion% Team Zach. And I would say that even if these 11 chapters were all I had ever read. I like Logan, but I LOVE Zach. LOVE.
I can’t wait to read all your answers below. Answer one question, or all of them – whatever!! Happy reading!
