Yeah, that really sucks. Why do they have such different release dates? Even AF wasn't that far apart, that was only a month, from UK to US at least.

Yeah, even then Australia was a couple of months behind :(...

It's because our government wont let us import books; we have to 'support' our publishers and buy their overpriced books in order to 'support our economy'... The only freaking thing we're supporting is raising taxes, unfair prices, and bookseller CEO's going home with outrageous pay checks..

It isn't fair, but unfortunately, not enough people are willing to stand up and fight against this law, so we will continue to wait months and pay maybe 30% more than what we should be paying.
We all have a dark side...

Spoiler:
That awkward moment when someone says "hi" to you, and you reply with "I'm good"... -_-

That shite moment in an argument when you realise you are wrong...

That awesome moment when the teacher asks you a question, thinking you weren't being attentive. Then you answer it right, it's like "What now! WIN!!!"

That depressing moment when your mum scribbles on the award your school gave you in congratulations for all your hard work, just to get her stupid pen to work D':


But you love me XD

Man, that's kind of ridiculous. Do they let you order books from other countries, just individually?

Actually, the publishing industry isn't AS big as you would think, I'm told.

I'm not sure I want to even read the new book. The series started out really well, but went drastically downhill around book 4 and there is no way JP could save it now.

I reread the first three books and wasn't as impressed second time round. It definitely suffers from lack of direction.

Finished Angel, finally.

Spoiler:
Kill humans? Produce good earth? Just. . . what? This light group thing (that should've been introduced way back rather than all these random, pointless bad guys) just was crazy, although at least the books seem to finally be getting somewhere.
Fax/Mylan whatever. Couldn't care less. And that's coming from a hardcore romantic.
Only real thing of interest- is Angel going to be coming back as a baddie? I think JP might go the SC route (Peeta) and have Angel's mind 'experimented' on.

Spoiler:
Yeah...idk. I really remember it much, but the group mind-controlling was pretty screwed up. And Ella...I don't know what's with her, or if she'll actually come back with wings, or what.
I hate Dylan, he's just really annoying. He wasn't too bad at first, but now that they're just making out everywhere I hate him.

The Angel thing, that would be interesting. I feel like that's happened before though, like Angel's always coming back altered and stuff. I also feel like he's made Angel a bad guy so much already, that I don't think he'll do it again. Unless it's like a really hardcore kind of evil, which would be nice to see.

Nah, she's already been evilified way too much. He should stop.

In fact, I'm just glad the next novel will be the last.

Well angel being who she is and basically wanting to mind-control everything
and besides she's only seven years old
but the whole issue now with the maximum ride series is how max's relationship is going
now that she's with dylan and not fang, because fang left max for her clone, who renamed herself maya
and now that the doomsday group tried to blow up Paris, angel is in the hands of some unseen evil.
i think now is the best time to start placing bets, because now it could be angel vs. max, or max vs. some ultmate evil group thats been running Itex and csm and dr. gunter hagen and mr. chu all at the same time
or something equally terrifying.
