Way of Kings RAL + Sci-fi and Fantasy Friday!

Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson Read-along

That’s right folks! Before getting to your regularly scheduled link-love, I wanted to announce an awesome read along that is starting in January! Nrlymrtl from Dab of Darkness is leading the charge on tackling The Way of Kings and I’m co-hosting :D. In addition to the awesome fun of reading another Sanderson book (right before the release of the sequel!) and discussing the intricate plot and scheming characters, participants get the added bonus of extra entries in the HUGE giveaway at the end that Tor is generously donating to! We’ll have multiple copies of both Way of Kings AND Words of Radiance (book 2!) for US entrants and I’ll be including a copy of both through TBD for international entrants :). To be a participant you just need to post answers to questions for a week or two, so even if you get busy, you should still sign up :D. Here is the schedule:

Prelude to Chapter 6 (96 pages), Jan. 1 Dab of Darkness
Chapter 7 – Chapter 13 (91 pages), Jan. 8 Over the Effing Rainbow
Chapter 14 – Chapter 19 (106 pages), Jan. 15 Lynn’s Book Blog

  4. Oh no! I think I’m just going to have finished reading this when you’re starting. I might participate in any discussions or twitter chats anyway though, since I think it will still be fresh in my mind. I’m enjoying it so much right now! It’s amazing :)

  5. Another readalong already? Right after Christmas? You are braver than I. Merry Christmas! :)

    • Hehe, we’re a little crazy ;-) We want to finish before the second book is published, so the timing was tight ;-) Happy holidays!

  6. Hooray! The madness begins!

  7. Woot! A readalong for a book that I actually own and have not read!! Usually it’s either I don’t have the book or I just read it before the readalong started, lol. But I recently acquired WoKs and have been looking forward to starting it. :D
