The MEGA Perpetual Reading Challenge Read-a-Long/Libba Bray A Great and Terrible Beauty Read-a-Long

In order to increase group interaction (and participation) within this reading challenge, as well as the three other perpetual challenges I host, I've decided to host this MEGA read-a-long event. For The Fantasy Project part of the read-a-long, which is coming in June, I chose A Great And Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. I went through all of your lists and it seemed this was one of the books that most of us (not all) have on our lists. If you don't have it on your list, you can still join us whether you end up adding it to your list or not. Also, feel free to join in on the other read-a-longs. You do not have to sign up for the other reading challenges to join in on the read-a-longs.

The hub for the entire event will be at my The True Book Addict blog but the individual read-a-longs will be hosted at their respective blogs (I will list those below). The Libba Bray read-a-long will be hosted here at the main Fantasy Project blog and I will also post the discussions in our Goodreads group. Look for a page in the menu at The True Book Addict which serves as this MEGA read-a-long's hub.

So, here is the schedule of read-a-longs and their respective blog urls:

June 2015: A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray - hosted here and in Goodreads group.

July/August 2015: The Covenant by James A. Michener - hosted at The Michener Challenge blog.

September 2015: The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice - hosted at The Never-Ending Anne Rice Challenge blog.

October 2015: Salem's Lot by Stephen King - hosted at The Stephen King Challenge blog.

Now, here is the reading schedule for A Great and Terrible Beauty. We start reading today, June 1st! We will have two midway point and at the end. 

June 1-14:  Read pages 1 - 205 (Ch. 1 - 17)
June 15:  Stop by and discuss here or at the Goodreads group.
June 16-29: Read pages 206 - end (Ch. 18 - 39)
June 30: Stop by and discuss here or at the Goodreads group.

I hope you will join me...for this one, or all of the read-a-longs. Feel free to comment below if you have any questions or comments.
