His Dark Materials Read-a-long

When Stephen from Dark Readers and I got chatting on Twitter about His Dark Materials, we both said an idea of doing a readalong would be cool. And before I knew it, a bunch of other book bloggers got excited over this idea too.

So, throughout the course of March, we are banding together to do the His Dark Materials ReadALong, based on the series by Philip Pullman (to celebrate its 20th anniversary of being published! 20TH ANNIVERSARY, PEOPLE!!!) . Each week, one or two of us will take to Twitter and talking about what we have read, whether we are reading the book for the first time or if we're rereading it and discovering new things...

So, what's the plan of action? Well, here it is!

Monday 2nd March till Sunday 8th March 2015 - Tales of Yesterday (@ChelleyToy) and Comet Babes Books (@CometBabesBooks) will be reading Northern Lights.

Monday 9th March till Sunday 15th March 2015 - Bookish Treasures (@Loopy_Lu_) will be reading The Subtle Knife.

Monday 16th March till Sunday 22nd March 2015 - Thirst for Fiction (@FictionThirst) will be reading The Amber Spyglass.

Monday 23rd March till Sunday 29th March 2015 - Dark Readers (@DarkRReviews) and myself (@PewterWolf13) will be reading Lyra's Oxford.

SATURDAY 28TH MARCH 2015 - All of us will be listening to the audiobook The Collectors (it's really short! Only 30 minutes long so we will be tweeting about throughout the day...)

Monday 30th March till Sunday 5th April 2015 - Myself and Dark Readers will be reading the other novella, Once Upon A Time In The North.

If you are following us on Twitter (or fancy taking part), we have come up with a hashtag - #HDMReadALong. It'll be great fun. Honest!

  1. What a very, very fun idea! I love it. I can't believe it's been 20 years. I will definitely be following along on the hashtag :)
