CL clarified some things and answered some questions about the GB series. If you haven't seen it you can either read it on her blog on her website or find it here --> https://clstonebooks.com/2017/10/29/november-begins-serious-book-talk/

what are your thoughts?!!

Thanks for the link. I really enjoyed reading it. A couple of thoughts:

I'm glad about the no-sex aspect of the series. I'm in it to see how their relationships get figured out, plus, I guess, to see their assignment through. I think it would overcomplicate things, especially at their ages, to introduce sex. I think they're too young. Plus, if it starts YA, I like a series to end the same way.

I also am enjoying the little sweet moments between Sang and each fella, as they work out their relationship. I don't want 2 months skipped between each book. I'm assuming, though, that we'll at least reach June, or the end of the school year, by the last of the remaining 8 books. We've had 12 books cover 5 months, so a little bit of speeding would be required for that.

Oh yeah, I'm intrigued by the mention of the other planned GB book series. I feel many of the younger readers will be in their thirties like the characters, by the time those books come out.

I just want to let C L Stone know that we think she is amazing and we love her work...I appreciate all the effort she puts into the story writing, the newsletters, the products on etsy, just how fan-friendly that she is...she fast became one of my favorite authors and while sure I would love for books to come out sooner, I understand that A LOT of effort and goes into getting things published...I once waited ten years for a book sequel in another series...so C L Stone, you are doing AMAZING getting books out as quickly as you do...keep up the good work!

Lol... I'm old enough to be a grandma... and I'm reading the series for the fifth or sixth time...

I love a well constructed character, and the boys are complicated and adorable. The premise is one I love... take "pay it forward" and add the concept of "family is a choice "... brilliant

Oddly, I cannot read the scarab series quite as often... not because I don't enjoy it... but because the mood is darker, more chaotic and far less altruistic in tone. They, too, are wonderful.

I think all that could improve these books for me would be if the Academy was real...
