Marked: A House of Night Novel | P. C. Cast, Kristin Cast
The House of Night series is set in a world very much like our own, except in 16-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampyres have always existed. In this first book in the series, Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampire--that is, if she makes it through the Change. Not all of those who are chosen do. It's tough to begin a new life, away from her parents and friends, and on top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx. But she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers. When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school's most elite club, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny--with a little help from her new vampyre friends.

Last day of my read along of Marked. I finished the book and loved it! As you can see my orange cat helped me read about Nala, the orange cat in the book! I had a hard time putting the book down during the last 100 pages. I am so curious to find out what will happen next! Good thing I have the next three books ready to read! Let me know what you thought of Marked.

Day two of my Marked read along. Today I read chapters 11-19. This section was mostly about two different full moon rituals. I liked learning more about the Vampyres and the rules of their community. I also completely love Zoey‘s friends Stevie Rae and Damien! I also really like Zoey‘s cat. I love female orange cats! Things are getting a little more complicated for Zoey because she isn‘t like theothers. Can‘t wait to read more!

Day one of my read along and the first 10 chapters of Marked. So far I am really like the mix of Vampire and Cherokee cultures. My favorite part was when Zoey described her laughter as birthday cake frosting! I‘m not so into the mean girl storyline and there is some offensive language in here. Some of the 2007 slang is not okay by today‘s standards. Overall I‘m looking forward to reading more! What are your thoughts?

I was skeptical when I first started this book. It didn't catch my attention when I first started. It wasn't until the middle of the book that I really got interested. However I feel I know how this story is going to unfold and I am a little disappointed. Not sure if I will continue with the series.

Not a ad take on the standard vampire lore. It is very YA so buyer beware.

This book was a lot better than I expected. It was really fun and entertaining and a unique take on vampires and the supernatural. I really loved the YA perspective in this because it felt real and relatable. I definitely think I‘ll be reading the rest of these!

Slowly but surely, one thrift store at a time I have been finding the books that belong to this series. I found 2 today at the thrift store and one at the Dollar Tree! It is called The House of Night Series. If you have read some of them, did you like them, or what were your thoughts?

ashsbookmarks I‘ve seen those. They look cool but haven‘t picked any up 11mo
Shley9225 I‘ve seen those books everywhere, but they kind of looked like a Twilight rip-off so I‘ve always passed them by. Nice to see that I may have been wrong 11mo
Traci1 I've read up through Tempted, I think. I liked the earlier books more than the later ones, but it's a decent series. 11mo

Gissy I'm trying to find all these books. Not easy. 11mo
tracey38 I read them years ago and enjoyed them. It has a lot of interesting things that come up throughout the series that made it unique to me. I agree the earlier books are better. I hope you enjoy then. 11mo

I started this audiobook and returned it by the middle of chapter 2. I even requested a second opinion to make sure I wasn't crazy. This narrator's voice put both of our nerves on edge. Her voice is screechy, her tempo is off, and her lilting is all wrong. Not to mention she's voicing shallow teenage girls, but just makes them sound whiney. I'm still not scared away from the series, but I'm definitely going to have to read this myself. 👎👎🙉🙉

Literary_Siren Definitely read the books. I rarely listen to audiobooks unless they are biographies or books read by the author or famous actors. 1y
WhatThePuck @Literary_Siren this series has been on my TBR forEVER! I forget about it and then see the series when I'm at the library, but they never have the 1st book available and I forget to request it. I started listening to audiobooks last year and feel spoiled by all of my previous narrators. I'm curious if all YA audios are like this. 1y
Literary_Siren I don‘t think they are. I‘ve listened to some while on a road trip last August. I finished the Jackaby series and listened to Talking As Fast As I Can, Scrappy Little Nobody and Born a Crime. I enjoyed them all. Jackaby was the only YA I listened to but I liked it. Though the narrator did get on my nerves from time to time, I got lost in the stories. 1y
tracey38 I enjoyed this series but I read the physical book. This is why I have a hard time with audiobooks. The reader can completely turn me off of a good story 1y
WhatThePuck @tracey38 the narrator definitely makes or breaks an audiobook. I was still able to tell the plot will be interesting, but I need to read it myself for sure. 😂😂 1y

Autumnscribe I liked the first one too, and the next few after that. After about book 5 or so I thought that the Books became a bit light on content...new plot points were rationed out in very small amounts....ultimately I quit before finishing.... but your mileage may vary. :) 2y

I started reading this series a decade ago and loved it at first. But by the third book, they'd started including dialogue like, "Remember when we..." and then they'd rehash plot points from the previous books. Which would have happened, like, a week or two previously within the world of the books. I finally gave up when half of each book was spent summarizing the previous books. #TBTReads

Meeko93 Yes I didn't like that either. It's like you had to of read them when they came out one by one instead of one right after the other. 2y

Bk1 Of The #24in48 #readathon is done. Plus my puzzle is almost finished so it‘s a win/win for me. A fairly predictable YA Paranormal novel, the thing I really liked about it was the magical tattoos that the vampires receive as they grow into their power. Going straight into Bk2 in the series, Betrayed, on audio so I can finish my puzzles. Onwards my fellow ‘thoners 💪

You had to kill the mood didn't you Z? You couldn't be satisfied with just saying "I'm not that kind of girl. I don't usually make out like this"
You HAD to add "like a slut"

So one thing is a typo and another thing is a fail in translation.
'No me gusta lavantar el gato.'
1. Isn't "I don't like to wash the cat"
2. Isn't written correctly
It could be 'No me gusta levantar el gato' , which mean "I don't like to wake up the cat".
This caught me completely off guard. What kinda Spanish teacher is this? I asked google but it couldn't help me~

I'm not fully enjoying this but I'm not dreading reading it. I want to keep going but I don't feel captured and completely entertained. I feel for Z sometimes and other times her blabbing is unnecessary. I find her being immature and I don't think it's because I'm older. And it has been conformed. A lot of slut - shaming and girl hating. Why can't get just get along?
Regardless, it doesn't feel like a DNF so I shall continue.

Quick Blur moment. I'm not sure if I mentioned it before but I have tried to read Marked many years back when I ha was in high school after my friend begged me to start the series. I remember I got to this part and my reaction was the following:
"Oh its that kind of book. Hehehhe... nope. Nope nope. Not at this moment. Not taday~"

And here we are again. Blow-job scene.
#marked #houseofnight #ch7

BookHoarder32 Yeah, I read the first and I think second book after I read through Twilight and Vampire Academy and thought what is this?!?! This is young adult? 😵 2y
Daughter_of_Opulence @BookHoarder32 I had read Vampire Academy before this book and loved the series. I don't remember anything similar to this scene. 😂 It has been years tho so I don't remember much if VA. I've never read Twilight. I'm adding it to my TBR this year (mostly because of my friends). A few people have told me that Blowjobs will appear a lot. Teenagers and Hormones ? 😂 2y
BookHoarder32 @Daughter_of_Opulence nothing close to what goes on in Marked, and the HON series was in Twilight or VA. (I too loved the VA series) some characters had sex but it was handled better - not so explicit? 🤔 2y

BookHoarder32 Have you read the spinoff VA Bloodlines series? I have them all, but haven't gotten back around to them. 2y
Daughter_of_Opulence @BookHoarder32 Ahhh and so my journey begins into the House of Night. I've only seen the Twilight movies so I know that it's in the last book where they have sex but it's good to know for the future that it's handled better. I'm going to reread VA this year. 2y
Daughter_of_Opulence @BookHoarder32 I have not but I do have the first book. I've been putting it off since I learned of it because I know it's focus is on different characters and I fell in love with Dimitri and Rose. After I finish VA I'll start with Bloodlines. 2y

From Hesiod's poem to Nyx, the Greek personification of night:
"There also stands the gloomy house of Night; ghastly clouds shroud it in darkness. Before it Atlas stands erect and on his head and unwearying arms girly supports the broad sky, where Night and Day cross a bronze threshold and then come close and greet each other" (Hesiod, Theogony, 744ff.)

272 pages in and I'm not sure how I feel about this, I feel like it's moved quite fast without really setting much in, I think for such a long series it could've done with being a bit of a slower paced book to really draw you in and engage you rather than rush through to the finishing school drama, anyone else agree??

I #CantEven with the House of Night Series! I can handle a love triangle (although the only triangle I like is pie 😊) but this turned into a freaking love hexagon! Every book added more love interests! I had to bail, I can only roll my eyes 👀 so many times while reading! #JuneBookBugs #BookNerd 📚❤️

monkeygirlsmama I liked the first, but never read the rest. Lived down the road from the park that the characters went to, so that was cool. The author and I shopped at the same small town bookstore and my good friend is the office manager at her vet's office, yet I always just missed her. 😂 (edited) 2y
Conservio I got about through book 8 and then said "done". I appreciated that they wanted to explore polyamory, but it was just absolutely ridiculous how they did it. I also think the pace moved along way to quickly. (edited) 2y
