Sir Anni takes her title and role very seriously, as every good knight should! ;)

Also, here I am because I'm a good and loyal subject :p

Virginie | 5795 comments Hahaha :p

I should change my name to 'Empress Virginie' xD

The fact I'm a self-proclaimed Empress is irrelevant, of course. :p

A self-proclaimed empress is not that unfitting for a fantasy group ;)
Also, you have my support of course :)

Zaara | 4273 comments Virginie...well, I think ALL the Tome Raiders proclaimed her. I proclaimed her Queen Shallan and Ron decided to abdicate and promoted her to Empress and gave her a tiara and everything...
Oh and totally expressing my freewill and agency here...bcuz Ghost is totally innocent....
I am soooo in...but mind ye, varlets and varmints and scurvy knaves...I only commit to the first book as a trial...I fully expect to pull a F&tF....
Signed,
Another Scurvy Knave

I feel like I want to join in on this read just because of the comments even before the read has started.

Sadly I don't have a copy of it and I have way too many books I have to read that I already own, but enjoy the read! It seems like a really fun group this time :)


Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments I'm way in! Love having a schedule.

Charlie (charlieridley) | 4549 comments As much as I'd love to read this one I've done a ridiculous thing and I've committed to 16 BRs this month... and I'm still reading 3 (big ones) from Sep. It's just not reasonable really. So hopefully someone will want to read this one with me next year. Hope you guys really enjoy your read!

Bea | 2052 comments Started yesterday :)
So far it I'm getting three musketeer vibes (fighters with coats and swords are sworn to their king etc.)
