This is the YA Shot Read-a-long for February and I'm probably about 5 chapters in so far and loving it. It's very different, a little bit gruesome, and I'm not sure where it's going yet, but I'm definitely enjoying it, and I'm finding it quite difficult to take my time. We're reading this over the whole month and all I want to do is finish it now!
As for this start? It's short and shocking, and starts the story with one heck of a bang. Who is bleeding? Why are they bleeding? Why is this character watching them bleed?
