The list author says: "2008 and 2009 were pretty sad in terms of reading, due to things such as more difficult coursework in school and less time during breaks. So, on the whole I was reading a lot more than I usually did, just not the sort of things which I generally count toward this sort of thing. At least I still managed to read a few interesting books ^_^"
"I didn't finish this book until late October- I have no idea how I managed to avoid spoilers. I have very mixed feelings about the series- it's a love-hate relationship. I liked how it wasn't what we expected, but at times it could be a bit tedious to read."
"I picked this up mostly because of Jaida Jones' involvement with the Shoebox Project, but I wasn't disappointed- it was a very enjoyable read. My one complaint is that something about the writing made it hard for me to finish it- I just couldn't read big chunks at a time."
