This year for Wyrd and Wonder we are running two semi-formal read-alongs - this is the second, starting on MAY 9TH and running each Thursday.

Our schedule:

THURSDAY 9th: Beginning through end of Ch10
THURSDAY 16th: Chapter 11 through end of Ch23
THURSDAY 23rd: Chapter 24 through end of Ch36
THURSDAY 30th: 37 to the end

We will aim to post questions here each Sunday ready for blog posts on Thursdays (we're less likely to run a co-ordinated Twitter chat midweek, but might post an open thread of questions for people to chip in on if there's demand for a less formal option.

Fancy joining in? Shout to let us know you're interested and we'll see you in May :)

PS You don't have to formally be signed up to Wyrd and Wonder to join in the read-along. If there's interest / excitement, the final book in this trilogy is published this May so I'm happy to organise further read-alongs to finish the series over the summer.

Lauren (fictionalfox) | 1 comments I'll hopefully join in with this if I can finish my current read over the next few days, fingers crossed!

I’ll host week one. If anyone would like to pick up question setting duties in later weeks, yell!

Okay, adventurers! Buckled up? Swords slung? Something good to drink stashed in your pack? Then we're probably ready to enter the Wild to tackle Jen Williams' fantasy cross-over trilogy...

Yes, yes, I'm early with the questions - the schedule for answers / posts remains Thursday as advertised :) I will post the questions to Twitter on Thursday too for anyone else to pitch in if they wish to (but won't be around to moderate any subsequent chat I'm afraid).


I don't actually think there are any spoilers here, but it's a reread for me so I'm taking no chances and getting into good habits for future weeks. Prompts behind the cut...

(view spoiler)
And of course feel free to share any other first impressions, wild assumptions or guesses about Where All This Is Going :D

Jason Aycock | 7 comments I may be a day or two late with my post this week. Life and whatnot. But I will say I’m enjoying the book so far! Thanks again for putting this together.

Sarah (dragonsandzombies) | 1 comments whoops, I'm a little late! just started right now & will catch up :)

I hope you’re all enjoying this even half as much as I’m enjoying my reread :)
