The Broken Kingdoms read-along: Schedule

The Broken KingdomsI enjoyed The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms so much that before I’d even finished the book I signed up as a read-along host for the rest of N.K. Jemisin’s Inheritance Trilogy. I’ll be joined by Susan from Dab of Darkness, and Grace from Books Without Any Pictures. However, we still have room for one or two more hosts, so if you’re interested, let me know!

If you want to blog along or just read along, then leave a comment and I’ll add your email to the list so you’ll get the discussion questions on the Saturday before the posts go out. And don’t worry if you haven’t read The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms – the books in the trilogy are all connected, but you can read them on their own.

Here is the schedule:

The Broken Kingdoms – 396 pages
Week 1 Prologue – Chapter 4 (96 pages) Jan. 6th Books Without Any Pictures
Week 2 Chapters 5-10 (105 pages) Jan. 13th Dab of Darkness
Week 3 Chapters 11-16 (98 pages) Jan. 20th Violin in a Void
Week 4 Chapter 17 – END (96 pages) Jan. 27th Books without Any Pictures

The Kingdom of Gods – 575 pages
Week 1 Prologue – Chapter 4 (104 pages) Feb. 10th Dab of Darkness
Week 2 Chapters 5-10 (115 pages) Feb. 17th Violin in a Void
Week 3 Chapters 11-13 (119 pages) Feb. 24th Books Without Any Pictures
Week 4 Chapters 14-17 (117 pages) March 3rd Dab of Darkness
Week 5 Chapter 18 – END (116 pages) March 10th Violin in a Void

As I mentioned, there is still room for one or two more hosts as it won’t be a problem for one of us to give up a session or two. Either  way, we’d love to see you in the comments!

  2. I’d love to be a host or a read-along companion. I’ve never been in either position before. What sort of things would I have to do to be a host? I feel like that’d be great 🙂 Especially since I’m reading a lot of books recently and could always do with more!

    • Hi Gabriella! Cool, I’ve added you to the email list 🙂 I just started doing read-alongs too.

      Being a host means that you set the discussion questions for that section. Posts go up on Mondays, so you have to email the questions to everyone by Saturday. To get an idea of the kinds of questions we pose, check out part 1 https://violininavoid.wordpress.com/2014/01/06/the-broken-kingdoms-read-along-part-1/ and the email Susan will send out later today (although that may have some spoilers). You can also check out my previous read-alongs – The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms and The Republic of Thieves.

      The host should also compile a list of links to the other participants’ posts as they come out, so that everyone can blog hop from there. To be a normal participant, you just do a blog post answering the questions that the host provided, and go around commenting on the others’ posts.

      Let me know if you’re still keen. You’re welcome to participate for The Broken Kingdoms (catching up will be easy, it’s an exciting read) and we still have host spots available for book 3, The Kingdom of Gods.
