RENEGADES readalong post banner final VERSION 3 B

Yay! It’s finally time for our first Renegades discussion! I feel like the wait has been so long since I announced this readalong, and it’s been torture. But now we’re finally reading this awesome book, and I’m very happy to be reading it together with all of you, and to be able to talk about it with you guys as well! This week we’ll be discussing from the prologue, up to the end of chapter 8. For those of you hearing about this readalong for the first time, you can find the info and sign-up post here. And if this is the first time you are hearing about Calendar Girls, it is a monthly blogging event which is hosted by Melanie and myself! For more details, please go to my info page about Calendar Girls!

Welcome to the 4th (and final) discussion for our A Darker Shade of Magic readalong! It seems as if we’ve been reading this book for a very long time…and at the same time, it also feels as if time just flew by! I’m very sad that we are now finished this book, and that our discussions have to end! I want to continue hosting readalongs for the sake of these awesome discussions alone! Due to my insane reading schedule (you can have a look at the craziness here), I will be unable to host one in October. I am hoping to host a readalong for the sequel to this book in November though, and will keep you guys updated on that. Now, let’s get to our last ADSOM discussion!

Welcome to the last My Lady Jane readalong discussion! Yes, I know, I’m sad too! I really enjoyed this month of reading MLJ and discussing it with all of you. I don’t know what I’ll do with myself after this (I wish there was a sequel). But at least I know that I can dive into the next readalong that I’m hosting (which some of you have also joined already, yay!), so there’s that. Anyway, on to the discussion!

If this is the first time you’re hearing about this readalong, you can read the announcement and sign-up post here! I was accepting new participants up to this point, and welcome to all of you who may have joined us since the first discussion! I guess I could accept participants for the next discussions as well? I mean, if you read quick, or are sure that you can catch up, you are welcome to join in and even add to the previous discussions! Just be sure to sign up so that I can keep track of everyone!

It’s finally here! Our first discussion for the My Lady Jane read-a-long! Ever since I started reading this book, I’ve been wanting to discuss it with someone who’s read it, or is reading it too. And I’m so happy that we can all do that now. I don’t know if I could have handled reading this hilarious book on my own, so I’m very very glad that so many of you could join me! And I really do hope that all of you are enjoying it at least half as much as I have been! If this is the first time you’re hearing about this read-a-long, you can read the announcement and sign-up post here! Even though we’re already discussing the book, I will accept new participants as long as you’re sure that you can catch up with us by the next discussion for chapters 9-15 on August 16th!
