Welcome, Dear FairyLooters!
So glad to have you here, whether you’re returning from our last Readalong or if this one will be your first!
Our November’s box has featured a new release, Skyward by Brandon Sanderson. This author is one of my all time favourites so needless to say, I am very excited to get into this. This is a slightly longer book than our October’s one and so to accommodate for everybody’s reading speed we thought it would be wise to let you know the schedule a bit earlier on.
As always, we really want to make this a true cozy reading experience where we share our thoughts as we go, get to know each other, and find new friends. Social media is a great tool to find fellow bookworms, and we’re here to try and make it a bit easier. We want everyone to feel truly and fully part of the FairyLoot community, where we can confide in each other and discuss books & life. So how does this Readalong work? It’s quite easy really.
Every day I, your Readalong host G, will post some discussion points or observations from the section of the book allocated for that day. The reading schedule is as follows:
10th of December: Chapters 1-9
11th of December: Chapters 10-16
12th of December: Chapters 17-23
13th of December: Chapters 23-29
14h of December: Chapters Interlude-36
15th of December: Chapters 37-46
16th of December: Chapters 37-55
To read this book in a week, the daily goal is to have around 70-80 pages read; but of course we are all so different so please feel free to adjust the goal to suit you! If you like, you can try and start earlier!
The daily posts will have spoilers for that allocated book section so we can freely share our thoughts for what just happened and predictions as to what will follow! Cannot wait to hear what you think!
Instagram will be a spoiler free zone! Make sure to tag us in your Readalong stories when you get ready for a reading session, we often repost these and we love seeing you all cozy and ready to smash the daily goals! It keeps us and others motivated! If you take Instagram photos of the book, you might also find your photo being featured in a post too (with due credit, of course!).
I will pop on the stories every day to remind you which chapters we are reading that day. We know some people like to set a handy phone reminder to get that reading done too!
Are you in?
We know Sci-Fi can be daunting, especially if you haven’t read this genre before, but we know Brandon Sanderson’s writing is considered really reader-friendly no matter the topic so if there was ever a good place to start, it’s with Skyward! Plus, we will be here for you every step of the way!
Let us know if you are joining in the comments below and if you have read anything from this author before or if this will be your first?
And remember, we are launching our ships skywards (hehe) on the 10th of December!
