Masquerade Read-Along - Week #4

by 1:08 PM 5 comments

Welcome everyone to the last week! week of the Masquerade Read-Along.  This has been so much fun :)  On Saturday is the Live-Chat with Author Cambria Hebert! Unfortunately, I won't be online to join, but make sure you do - over at Five Alarm Book Reviews!

This Weeks Discussion Questions

Week / Chapters 24-31

1. Heven develops a new “supernatural power”. She remarks that it isn’t that exciting of a power. Is this a power you would like to have, if not what kind of supernatural power would you like to have?
I think her power is cool. ACTUALLY, I think any "power" would be awesome! Obviously there is going to be a reason she can see aura's! I have always thought Invisibility would be awesome. To be a "fly on the wall" as such - could you imagine the things you could find out!
2. Which character do you think makes the biggest internal change throughout the course of this book?  Is there a situation in your life that you can reflect back on as an experience that changed your life for the better?

I am going to go with Sam for this one. Yes, Heven went through a lot and she changed, but I think it was Sam who made the biggest internal change.  Throughout the book, Sam goes from feeling like Heven's accident was his fault, to protecting her, to hurting her again, to becoming her guardian - it is massive for him to take on, but he does, taking it all in his stride.  As for life-changing experiences, I think having my little was one that changed my life for the better :)  (sometimes worse, depending on what mood she/in are in :P )
3. Who is your favorite character and why?
This is a hard question but I am going to have to go with Kimber. YES, Kimber. She did/said so many questionable things, that the story would not have been the same without her and that is why she is my favourite character. I always love the characters that try to turn things sidewards, without even knowing it!
4. When the book ends the reader has an idea of what the next book will involve. Do you think the book ended in the appropriate place?  
Of course not! Cambria should have just mashed Masquerade and Charade together so it didn't have to end at all :)

LOL. But seriously, yes. I think everyone is going to have different opinion's and where it has ended, it has been done for a reason.
5. Do you have any predictions for the next book in the series, Charade?
You know, I love to think I am a mind-reader and can guess what the author is going to do. But I am definitely not, and have just learnt to wait and see! Although, Fallen Angels are my FAVE paranormal "type" so can't wait to see them pop up ;)
6. Did you enjoy participating in this read along?  Will you join in future read alongs?
This was fantastic! Just a few chapters a week, getting to see everyone's thoughts, it is great! Of course! I am already ready and waiting for the next one ;)
Well that is all folks! We have come to the end of the read-along part, but not to the end of the fun! Saturday April 28th will see a live-event and giveaway, plus on May 3rd, author Cambria Hebert will announce the giveaway winners at her site! So be sure to check that out and thank you everyone for joining me on this wonderful adventure <3

  1. I believe that Sam when through the biggest change too.
    Your fav character is Kimber? Well, even though I am not a big fan of her I have to admit I like her spark. She really makes the story even more special.

  2. I absolutely love this!! Anything that screams masquerade and I am there. Thank you for sharing.

  3. I am surprised that people think Sam went through the biggest change! I agree he went through a big change too but I always thought Heven's was more obvious. Which I guess it was.. Sam's was just more quiet, which I guess in way does make his bigger. Really thought provoking for me! thanks!
    Well, yes I could have mashed Charade and Masquerade together that would have been one long book!
    Interesting that you sys Kimber... she is definitely an intersting character. Can't wait to see what you think of her after you read Charade!

  4. Loved your answer about Mashing together Charade and Masquerade. I am itching to dig into Charade right now! Wow! Kimber. I like her but I don't think we are going to like her after Charade. I keep seeing everyone saying Sam Changed, I guess he did and I just didn't see it as much as Heven. Thanks so much for participating. Hope you have fun. I have two upcoming read alongs listed on my post so hopefully you can join another.

  5. Great point Claire. Any power would be awesome. I am glad the Kimber was a part of the story too. It is great to have some scandalous stuff going on in a good read. That is how I feel about many of the characters in The Luxe Series. I might not want my own life to depend on them, but they sure are fascinating. Thanks for giving a reminder for tomorrows live event.
