We said we'd pick up The Expanse read-along in January so I thought I'd get a board set up to check in on appetite and thrash out the details. Weekly breakdown courtesy of @Misforawesome!

Week 1: Prologue - Ch12, Sunday 14th Jan, hosted by @imyril at x+1
Week 2: Ch13 - Ch27, 28th Jan, hosted by Lisa at Over the Effing Rainbow
Week 3: Ch28 - Ch41, 4th Feb, hosted by @imyril at x+1
Week 4: Ch42 - End, 11th Feb, hosted by Lisa at Over the Effing Rainbow


Sarah (CoolCurryBooks) (coolcurry) | 162 comments Sounds good to me! I'd prefer to host anytime after the first week, since I want some time to settle into the new semester.


Lisa (deargeekplace) | 526 comments Mod
I can take the first week if no one else wants to. I am so ready. :D


imyril | 287 comments Mod
Do you mind if I take dibs on week 1? I’ll be travelling again so I need to get my post written early :)


Lisa (deargeekplace) | 526 comments Mod
No problem! ;)

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments I am still on board for the read-along! I don't think I'll be able to host any weeks this time, though, I have a lot of work stuff in Jan.


imyril | 287 comments Mod
Right, now with breakdown, yay!


Lisa (deargeekplace) | 526 comments Mod
I can take week 2 and also 4, if need be!


imyril | 287 comments Mod
Oh my. Gird your feelings and buckle up for the next big plot arc.

Questions for week 1: (view spoiler)

...and of course, any other thoughts / feelings / observations!


Sarah (CoolCurryBooks) (coolcurry) | 162 comments Hi everyone. I think I'm going to need to drop out of the read along, or at least accept that I'm going to have trouble keeping up. Classes just started this week and the work load is a lot more than I was anticipating.

Would anyone be able to take over my week?


imyril | 287 comments Mod
I can take 3 if you’re still ok to take 4, Lisa?

Yeah, no problem! Sarah, remember to take care of yourself and get plenty of sleep *fusses* ;)


Sarah (CoolCurryBooks) (coolcurry) | 162 comments Thanks you guys!


imyril | 287 comments Mod
No worries!

Here's my Week 1 post! http://overtheeffingrainbow.co.uk/201...

Ahem, you’d be right to think I’m struggling to put this down. Week 3 questions - tackle these in any order you like as they overlap a bit!

message 23: by Allison (new)

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments I just wanted to comment that I have not vanished! I am just not keeping up as well as I'd hoped. I'll have my posts up at some point!

No worries! In your own time.

Though, on that note, I just wrote up my week 3 post and I'm not wasting any more time than I have to in finishing the book, so you can probably expect my final questions pretty soon too. :D

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments Coming in at the end, here my week two as well! https://tethyanbooks.blogspot.com/201...

Woop woop :D

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments Week 3, not quite as late as last week! https://tethyanbooks.blogspot.com/201...

So I hate to have to do this, but a lot of real life stuff has hit me out of the blue tonight, and dealing with that in order to prevent an anxiety-fest means I won't get this week's questions posted. Or possibly even my post written on time. So unless someone else can take it for me, it's going to be a few days behind schedule at least. Sorry, folks.


message 32: by Allison (new)

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments I am still a few days behind schedule myself, so I don't mind if the last questions are a few days later than usual.


Sarah (CoolCurryBooks) (coolcurry) | 162 comments I just finished section three, so obviously I don't care if section four is late.


imyril | 287 comments Mod
Absolutely. No rush :)

OK! Finally setting myself back to blog work, starting with this. Final questions! :)
