Dena @ Batch of Books and I are hosting the Finishing School Read-Along for the second and third books in this series: Curtsies & Conspiracies and Waistcoats & Weaponry. We will launch the read-along on Saturday, November 1st, and wrap up on Saturday, November 29th.
The best part, besides reading these fabulous books, is that the author, Gail Carriger, will be stopping by with a couple of interviews and we'll be giving away the ENTIRE FINISHING SCHOOL SERIES!!! The giveaway will be open to international participants (as long as the Book Depository ships to you for free).
Now, if you haven't read the first book, you're welcome to add that in as well. You don't need to be a blogger to participate, you just need some public place to post updates for the linky (like Twitter or Tumblr or Instagram...), or just leave a comment below saying you'd like to join if you don't have a place to post. If you've read the first two, but not the third (which comes out November 4th), you are more than welcome to join us in reading just that book.
Here's what the schedule looks like (for those of us who will be reading both books):
Nov 1: Read-Along Launch
Nov 7: Curtsies, chapters 1-8
Nov 14: Curtsies, chapters 9 -16, epilogue, and final thoughts on the book
Nov 21: Waistcoats, chapters 1-8
Nov 28: Waistcoats, chapters 8-16 and final thoughts on book
Nov 29: Read-along wrap up
Nov 30: Giveaway winner announced
Each of these days Dena and I will be posting some thoughts on what we've read so far. We'd love for you to come share your thoughts as well, even if you're not participating. We'll be using #FinishingRA on Twitter for updates and may be having a chat as well. You can include Dena (@denabooks) and I (@tressherm) as well in any updates.
We're going to have a blast reading these together! So what do you think? Want to join us? Fabulous!!! Fill out your info in the linky below and let Dena or I know if you have any questions.
