Um, I am completely addicted
I am waiting for my corset to come in the mail and my friend is waiting for hers
We are going to do a Victorian photoshoot XD XD XD

Reasons I love it?
The characters
Gemma and her flaws and desires and insecurities are so real
Felecity, everyone knows a Fee in their life
Ann, she is so pitiful and mostly loveable
And Oh my God Kartik (HOT! but Jacob is still winning in my land of book-crushes so meh)

Kartik: *grumble*
Jacob: *beams*
Kartik: It's cause I'm a Indian isn't it?
Jacob: I doubt it, I'm a Native American *flexes mocha colored muscles*
Kartik: B-but I at least GET the girl in the book!
Jacob: *glare*
Kartik: Not to mention I get some very explicit fantasy scenes *grins*
Jacob: I'm a fucking werewolf
Kartik:...*gulp*
Jacob: Yeah. I win.

So... before I say anything else, I need to know whether you've finished The Sweet Far Thing.

(sidenote: COMPLETELY LOVE THIS SERIES, WOULD DIE FOR IT. AS SHOWN BY MY OBSESSIVE POST-TSFT RANT IN ANOTHER THREAD. FIN. Actually, my rant was more crazy than I feel now, because it was written immediately after reading the book, but I still remember the way I felt back then. I was a woman obsessed.)

No I havent Sad

I am on page 267
But my friend pretty much told me everything (upon my request, since i never thought i would read the series) and i know about the plotline with the tree
and pretty much the whole end, which she said was frustrating to no end

but even knowing that i kept going in the series
cause its so wonderful ^.^

Okay good. I didn't want to give anything away with my cries of "NOOOO KARTIK" if you hadn't even read/known about the ending. hehe.

But the Victorian photoshoot? Fucking awesome.
