UPDATED. PLEASE CHECK THE NEW DATES, NEW BANNER, AND BLOG POST LINK.
Hi guys!
We at @AGHowardPH (on Twitter) are hosting a read-a-long for Splintered and Unhinged.
It will be on August 11-12 September 1-2 (Splintered) and August 13-15September 3-5 (Unhinged).

Everyone is welcome to join--re-readers or new readers! Please invite your friends to join and spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, and even blog, if that's okay.

During the read-a-long: We can post quotes (as long as they're free from spoilers!) on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram and hashtag #SplinteredReadALong or #UnhingedReadALong. If you're posting on Twitter, please mention us so we can RT. If you're posting on Facebook or Instagram or anywhere, you can add the hashtag #AGHowardPH (since we only have Twitter acount. For now.)

If you're a blogger/reviewer, we would also appreciate it if you post a review on your blog/Goodreads during or after the read-a-long (you can also mention on your review that you joined this read-a-long). If you already have a review, that's not a problem! You can just share your link/s to us and we'll RT and tweet. A re-review post sounds cool too. Reminder: Reviews are NOT required, but highly appreciated!

We don't have giveaway/s but we are open to anyone who's willing to donate. Giveaways are series-related, of course. ANITA IS DONATING SOMETHING FOR THE GIVEAWAY! YAY, THANK YOU!! <3


Check out the blog post about the read-a-long I've published recently: http://michelletheescapist.blogspot.c...

@AGHowardPH is a Philippine based fandom for A.G Howard. It was formerly known as @SplinteredPH but I decided to change it into a fandom for all of Anita's books. For questions, suggestions, etc. just simply tweet us. Or you can also leave a comment here. :)

Thank you and I hope you guys can join! Let's dive in to the Wonderland. ;)

La La I'm in!! I am revamping my blog reviews of Splintered and Unhinged with gifs, so I guess I can use this read-along as a reason to reblog. :)

A.G. Howard (aghoward) | 1618 comments Thank you so much for coordinating this, Michelle! I hope you guys have fun reading, and if you'll tag me on some of your tweets, I'll be sure to RT! :) Also, may I donate something for a giveaway at the end if you'd like to do one? Something Alice in Wonderlandish, maybe? Let me know.

I looked at your review on splintered on there and thought it was awesome when I saw you used that "Madness is a place" gif, because I recognize it from one of the trailers for one of American McGee's Alice games, which I love.

Nope. You didn't miss a thing. They changed the dates to the first two weeks in September. I need to find their new banner and post it.

ashes ➷ (ashesarrows) | 1063 comments ...I started reading the books on the original dates...

Then I was upset because I finished Splintered a day late XD

At least it's not for nothing, now I can read the books again :3

I've found with good books, you always have that 'I didn't notice that the first time around' moment; A.G. did a really good job with all the details. Every time I read it, there's something new :D

I'm also sorry for not updating much, especially on this thread. I'm a busy girl and then my laptop went down so I have to move the dates. I promise to update you every now and then!

The thread is now UPDATED. You can check out/re-post/display the new banner and share the new dates and blog post link to everyone you know.

If you're a blogger, we would also appreciate it if you invite your readers by tweeting, posting in Facebook, or writing a blog post/post the banner on your blog.

message 27: by La La (last edited Aug 31, 2014 09:36PM) (new)

La La I just finished my last ARC August Challenge book and am going to start Splintered in the morning. How many chapters are we supposed to read?

You can tag @AGHowardPH when you update.. Whenever you want, really. But please use the hashtag #SplinteredReadALong or #UnhingedReadALong :)

As many as you can! :D If you can finished the book in one day, you can spend the spare day/time by posting your favorite quotes, etc.


message 30: by La La (new)

La La I didn't realize this was only for two days. Most people don't have time to finish a book in two days. I would warn first time readers that there will be tons of SPOILERS on the hashtag.


message 31: by Sabrina (new)

Sabrina  | 60 comments Okay


message 32: by A.G. (new)

A.G. Howard (aghoward) | 1618 comments This is just a suggestion, but you might try to keep the tweets as spoiler free as possible. You can say things cryptically where other readers will get it, w/out actually giving anything away, if you know what I mean?

Some people might stumble upon them w/out realizing it's a spoiler zone otherwise. That's how they did one of the read-a-longs I saw in the past. Have fun everyone!
