OK! For anybody who'd like to participate, here is the schedule I've come up with for Rosemary and Rue (October Daye #1, by Seanan McGuire):

Week 1: Saturday 9th January, Chapters 1-6, hosted by Over the Effing Rainbow (me!)
Week 2: Saturday 16th January, Chapters 7-14, hosted by Lynn at Lynn's Books
Week 3: Saturday 23rd January, Chapters 15-20, hosted by Anya at On Starships and Dragonwings
Week 4: Saturday 30th January, Chapters 21-End, hosted by Over the Effing Rainbow (still me!)

Huge thanks and fluffy warm things to Lynn and Anya for agreeing to host. I am super excited for this one, as the Toby Daye series is one of my absolute favourite UF series!

So! If you're up for taking part, I will probably run the read along from here, so just drop in a comment if you're game! :)

Heeey, I know you. ;)

Yep, I have heard many great things about Mary Robinette Kowal and I am looking forward to her narration of this book. She was at Bubonicon this year, but alas, I was too ill to attend. I fear I may cry about that once I witness her greatness.

Lali | 2 comments On board! No idea how these things work! Will try to hold off on reading it until then but I started it the other week and nearly got totally lost, so... No promises!

All right! Time for Part 1 questions - and once again, thanks to everybody who's taking part in this one! Can't wait to get discussing and see what you all think of R&R so far. (Questions under the spoiler tag!)

Tiara (digitaltempest) | 26 comments Hi all! I'd been going back and forth with myself about whether to join this Read-Along or not mainly due to my schedule, but I think I can do it. My responses probably won't be posted until the Sunday after the questions are posted, but I'm enjoying what I've read so far. And I'm glad I jumped in. My response post for the first set of questions is here: http://bibliosanctum.com/2016/01/10/r...

Absolutely no pressure with the posting! Whatever works best for you. Glad you can join us! :D


message 43: by Lynn (new)

Lynn Williams | 84 comments Apologies for being a little later than I intended with the questions.

Such a lot happened this week that I barely know where to begin and what chapter to stop at!

Anyway, to the questions (which there are probably too many of!):

(view spoiler)

I loved this week's chapters!!


Hisham El-far (el-far) | 51 comments I've had a long stretch of long shifts at work recently, coupled with a lack of sufficient sleep in between. But I'm finally catching up :)

I'll get my part 1 posted somewhere online tomorrow! (unless I get distracted by Netflix & laundry) ;)

Hisham El-far (el-far) | 51 comments Ok, better late than never. Bearing in mind that this is actually my 3rd read of Rosemary and Rue, I will sometimes be referring to my initial thoughts that I remember from my first read of this book!

Here is my week 1 post.

(view spoiler)

Fun fact, I once worked at a Safeways for four weeks in my teenage years! ;)

Roll on week 2!

TEAM TYBALT. :D


Tiara (digitaltempest) | 26 comments "TEAM TYBALT. :D"

I'm pretty sure I need that on a shirt.

#TeamCaitSidhe is also needed or my cat might disown me until it's time to feed her.
