Tempting Tuesday: Some Girls Bite Read-Along Chapter 5-8

Hosted by Tina at Tina's Book Reviews, Rummanah at Books in the Spotlight, Missie at The Unread Reader and Jenny at Supernatural Snark.
I am a turtle! That's the only explanation for me to read this book so slow. I am pretty sure everyone in the read-along has already finished this book while I read four chapter a week! *face palm*

Last week we discussed chapter 1-4 of Some Girls Bite. You can find the post here. Today's discussion will be on chapter 5-8. Head over toTina's Book Review for more info.
In what is a make you blush, steamy scene in the book- Chapter 5 has Ethan and Merit sharing a few hot moments after Merit's hunger strikes...that is until Ethan becomes a total cad! What do you think of him so far? Strong, masterful vampire, conceited playboy.....lover boy in disguise?
Hmmm I don't really know what to think of Ethan. He is a strong masterful vampire no doubt about that. I feel like there is an agenda for him to turn Merit. Yeah maybe he didn't plan on making her a vampire that night but the conversation between the two vampires (supposedly Ethan and another vampire) when Merit was being turned was a dead giveaway that he had been stalking Merit for quite some time. Or maybe everything was purely coincidental. Who knows! Ethan is a confusing vampire. He clearly wants Merit but lacks the modern day knowledge of how to ask a girl out!
Merit and Mallory begin some major training in these next few chapters, resulting in cool Katana Sword facts and Ninja moves. What is the most physically challenging or adrenaline fueled event/activity you have participated in?
*stares at monitor* 
I am the laziest person I know!! Akk

My father takes us hiking whenever he can. And let me tell you, waking up at 4 in the morning and hike up at the top of the mountain to see the sunrise is not my idea of fun. Ugh. We don't get to go that often now but it was fun whenever we went, even though I was the last to reach the top. *sigh*
Mallory and Catcher have sparks so intense they almost fly off the page.....what do you think of this cozy couple? Did you like the insta-love between them? Do they add to the story?
I liked the chemistry between Cather and Mallory. Instant fireworks and stuff works for me but it felt too rushed I guess. What! I like my romance that slowly builds up. 

They settle in this story only makes me want to read about something that focuses on Cather and Mallory instead of Merit.
Lets talk Bff's....Mallory is hands down a terrific friend to Merit, the girls relationship is real, down to earth and fun....not to mention hysterical. What is your favorite memory or favorite thing to do with your bff? Feel free to share pics!
I miss my school days! I have known my besties a little over twelve years. I think our mother had hard time keeping us apart. But now we don't get to see each other much ;(

We hang out mostly on the holidays. The last was on 31st night bbq'ing. I just realized there are nothing particular that we do. But whenever we are together these days we end up in the kitchen cooking. I am not much of a cook but I make awesome desserts. 

Love love LURVES my bffs! Wish we hanged out more.
Things are starting to heat up in the mystery department...the set up at Red, Morgan's flirty appearance.... Catchers vague answers......as correlation day gets closer for Merit do you think someone is out to get her...or maybe recruit her to another house? Or PS- feed her some more food...because goodnight this girl likes to eat!!!
I was reading about Merit's eggs and sausages this morning and found myself craving greasy breakfast!

There is someone that wants her. I am absolutely positive. There are so many reasons, first she comes from a wealthy very well-known family, her grandfather is the Ombudsman and Ethan has taken a personal interest in Merit. Also she exhibits signs of becoming a Master vampire!


  1. Oh my gosh you guys are beautiful! Love the pictures of you (and I mean this in a strictly non-creepy way) :) I'm having so much fun reading everyone's answers about Ethan and see all the speculation since I've cheated and read the whole series:) Hope you stick with it to find out all Ethan's secrets!

  2. I second Jenny~ you guys all look so pretty....that hair, I want it...;)

    And Hiking sounds awful!

    And that breakfast picture is now making me want to puke my slimfast up....:D

  3. Getting up at 4 am to do whatever is torture. I love sleep. Heck, if I have to choose getting up for breakfast or sleeping in for a half an hour, I'm choosing sleep. I can always eat later. ;)

    As for Ethan, yeah, he's bit of a mystery. It's like you want to know more about him but then he ticks you off so bad that you couldn't care less.

  4. Love the pictures! :)

    That breakfast does look delicious. Now I want it too.

  5. BB! You and your friends are GORGEOUS! I know how hard it is to be away from your friends. *hugs*

    And I'm right there with you on being the laziest person ever! No way I'd let my dad take my hiking...but I wouldn't have to worry about that because he is pretty lazy too. LOL

    P.S. I read like a turtle too. :)

  6. Don't worry about reading only 4 chapters a week, I am too.

    Isn't that the best, not really doing anything but still having the best time with close friends? Love it!

  7. I am totally with you in desiring more Mallory/Catcher action. I feel like at this point I wish I had more of them in the book. Not, that I don't like Merit. I just wish she had a bit more direction at this point.

    And omg, yes! pass that breakfast my way! And the genetics for it not to go to my hips ;)

  8. Your answers were great. No you aren't the only turtle. I read it each week probably because I am reading three other books and then if I finish it I know I will have to go answer the questions and right now I am too lazy so see you have a new friend who agrees with you.
    Hiking...ugh..hate it. .yeah the adrenaline fuel I get is trying not to die from not being able to breath.
    Mmm sausage! Nough said!

  9. I love that he doesn't know how to just ask her out or act "normal" with her. Always makes me laugh.

    So glad I wasn't drinking when I read

    *stares at monitor*
    I am the laziest person I know!! Akk

    Or I would have had water up my nose! too funny.

  10. I agree, I like slow-building romances too, so even though Catcher and Mallory aren't the main story it kind of annoyed me how fast their relationship moved.

    Oh yes, there is definitely something with Merit's family connection all mixed up in this!

  11. You and your besties look like you have so much fun!

    I never thought about that conversation, but you're right, Ethan may have been stalking Merit. But because he wanted to change her or because he thought she was a target? I think we'll have to read on to find out!

    Great answers!


  12. First off - you are beautiful! What a pretty picture! Also, I love hiking - I bet it would go much faster with a buncha blogger buddies shouting quotes along the way, ha, but not at 4am! i love the the woods, not enough to camp, but I love getting lost in them on a pretty day!

    Go Catcher! I want him to have his own series :)

  13. I like my romance to build up too!
    Ugh, waking up at 4 am to hike doesn't sound like my kind of fun either. But I bet once you got going it would be a peaceful and memorable experience.
