This March, some fabulous bloggers and I are embarking on what is sure to be the most epic of journeys. That’s right friends – we are tackling A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE by George R.R. Martin!
We have all desperately wanted to read the series for a while, but let’s be serious – those are some big books, and frankly, it’s scary (I mean, I can’t speak for everyone, but I’m scared..) After realizing we were not alone in our desire (and wariness) to read this series, we decided to set up a (casual) A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE READ-ALONG.
This goal of this read-along is for each of us to be able to read the series, with fellow bloggers to lean on and help cheer us through! Anyone and everyone is welcome to join us, as we will be having Twitter chats (#SOIFRA) while we read. We’re also hoping to set up an email thread per book where we can discuss all the things that are happening – and because we don’t want to get all spoilery for others.
Each book currently out in the series will be read over a period of two months, and every two months a different blogger will be “hosting” the read-along on their blog. You can check out the schedule below:
A GAME OF THRONES – Hosted by Alexa over on Alexa Loves Books from March-April
A CLASH OF KINGS – Hosted by Cass over on Books with Cass from May-June
A STORM OF SWORDS – Hosted by ME here at Books Take You Places from July-August
A FEAST FOR CROWS – Hosted by Kristina over on Gone Pecan from September-October
A DANCE WITH DRAGONS – Hosted by Brittany over on The Book Addict’s Guide from November-December
If you do feel like joining us in the read-along or if you have already read the book and want to chat along with us, let us know! We would love to hear from any of you! The idea is that we are keeping it casual so that everyone can enjoy the novels without getting too overwhelmed!
