I know everyone and their brother has about a million things to on their TBR these days, but I thought I would see if there was interest in doing an Old Kingdom Read-A-Long. (I plan on doing at least Sabriel, but if there is further interest, I’d be willing to continue on through Abhorsen!) I’ve never hosted (or done) a read-a-long before, but I plan on treating it somewhat like a book club? I thought we could read through certain chapters by certain days, and then discuss/answer questions I’ll research/come up with on Fridays. (This might be exactly what a read-a-long is, and if that’s the case, woo!) Anyway, on to the possible schedule.
If you’re interested, please comment below and let me know. I thought we could aim to do this in September, with the schedule for Sabriel as follows:
- Chapters 1 – 10: September 2
- Chapters 11 – 21: September 9
- Chapters 22 – 29: September 16
Sabriel is 491 pages long, but the chapters are quite short. Please speak up if you think this is an unreasonable amount of book to read in a week!
So what’s the book about? Check out the synopsis below:
SABRIEL BY GARTH NIX
Sent to a boarding school in Ancelstierre as a young child, Sabriel has had little experience with the random power of Free Magic or the Dead who refuse to stay dead in the Old Kingdom. But during her final semester, her father, the Abhorsen, goes missing, and Sabriel knows she must enter the Old Kingdom to find him.
With Sabriel, the first installment in the Abhorsen series, Garth Nix exploded onto the fantasy scene as a rising star, in a novel that takes readers to a world where the line between the living and the dead isn’t always clear—and sometimes disappears altogether.
