Default FINALLY... the Bees are being told!!



I AM SO EXCITED!

November 23 is THE day we will finally be able to get together with Claire, Jamie and the gang again and see how they are doing.

It's been a very loooooong wait but...it's finally on its way.

Who is with me?

LOL I could not figure out what your title could possible mean.

I have never watched/read the series. It sounds like I would lose at least a month of my life down that rabbit hole, so I've always avoided it.

I'm waiting. I loved the first 7...and then I discovered how LONG the wait is between books. There's no way I can remember it all well enough to just pick up the new book and read it, and each book is way too long to reread the whole series before each new release. So I'll wait until the series is 100% done (which I fully expect will be YEARS from now) and then start from the beginning again.

This is how the Green Rider series is! She started writing in 1998 and I think she's on book 7 now. It's so good, but its literally years between each book and it kills me.

SO true, but I.CAN'T.WAIT, lol!

I keep having that last few sentences in my head at the end of the last book and I WANT to know what happens next

enjoy it when you do finally get to them all.
and yes, huge books with huge waits in between, but so worth it. xx

hahaha

I read book 1, and started book 2, but for some reason didn't continue the series. Maybe I should add it to my "to read" list again

Never really liked the first book when I read it in 2011, and only watched up to 4 episodes of the show. But the covers were always enticing though...

I am excited, Jo!

I love the books although I generally skim all the war/strategy talk bits but am struggling with the TV series post-season 3. I'm watching it because I've invested too much to give it up now but I think it's a major yawn-fest (aside from ogling Sam, of course).

the first book is the hardest to get through as it lays the foundations for the story but the first 200 pages or so are.... a tough read

I can't even count the amount of times I've watch the series.... It's my go-to even if I'm trying to get stuff done.... like Sunday I was making masks for Disney and watched 7 or 8 episodes while I was sewing. lol
