Hello… it’s me.
I was wondering if after all these years…

…you'd like to read? How’s everyone doing? I hope you’re all fabulous! I really do miss LJ a lot and honestly, I have no excuse why I haven’t updated in forever. Je suis loser.
And this update is kinda just a book club thingie, so it’s probably pretty boring for the most of you. But I want to try to be better and update more often from now on. At least I have the intention to check LJ again frequently and keep up to date with all of your lovely lives.

Anyway, if you’re interested in (re)reading The Raven Cycle please read on! If not you can still tell me what you’ve been up to! I’d love to hear about it. :)


Hello lovely people!

I was thinking we could (re)read the first three books of The Raven Cycle together before the final book comes out end of April.
Like everyone has time to (re)read book one within three weeks or so and then we open a thread and discuss, squee, weep,… over it. And so on.
I also know we don’t have that much time left so the schedule will be pretty tight.

Please feel free to suggest if you want to do anything different or have more & better ideas how to handle this. This is my first time trying to do something like that.

Also, if you don’t want to reread the books but still want to talk with us about it – you’re very welcome! I’m sure you all know it by heart anyway. ;)

SCHEDULE:

Now – February 11th: Time to (re)read The Raven Boys.
February 12th: SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS! SPAM! SQUEE! WEEP! …for as long as you want to.

Now – March 3rd: Time to (re)read The Dream Thieves.
March 4th: SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS! SPAM! SQUEE! WEEP! …for as long as you want to.

Now – March 24th: Time to (re)read Blue Lily, Lily Blue.
March 25th: SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS! SPAM! SQUEE! WEEP! …for as long as you want to.

Of course you can read all the books right away if you want to, just wait for the date when we’re open to discuss the certain books.

Please make sure to write “Spoilers” in the subject line if you are talking about “The Raven King.”

Or do you think we should also write “Spoilers” in the subject line if that post contains stuff about the other books that aren’t to be discussed yet?
Or maybe we will decide once we know who wants to participate and if there’s even people around who are going to read the books for the first time?

OKAY OKAY OKAY. LET'S MAKE THIS A THING. SPREAD THE WORD. SQUASH ONE SQUASH TWO SQUASH THREE.

What a lovely idea! (I'm not going to join because it looks a little scary :P but lovely idea nonethless!)

The books look a little scary? I have a very limited tolerance of scary stuff ;) But also the challenge of having to read books with a deadline sounds scary to me right now ;) But it looks like a very fun initiative nonetheless! :D

Oh I seeeee, you mean the books ;) (but jsyk, it's not scary :))
Yeah I know what you mean, that idea scares me as well, lol. I'm so bad doing something under pressure so I have no idea why I'm doing this XD

It is totally a thing. Only what colors are they - Steifvater never says!!! Also,I think we should invest in the rowing club sweatshirts. Maybe later?

I can imagine they are red. Just imagine Gansey in a red jumper and not in a yellow polo. Very hot.

Sounds good, too. Maybe you can work on the design?

Not a lot of reading time for me at the moment, but I envy yours! Think I've just about got my CV done, ready to leave my job at the end of March, but I am WAAAY behind schedule right now with the job hunting.

Great to see you around ♥

*hugs hugs*

HELLO HELLO HELLO!!!!

I will try and read along, but I might totally fail on that front, again, bcs January and February (as my reading diary over the years tells me) seem to be notoriously horrible for me to manage to read anything, but YAY PARALLEL READING! Also, hello there!

HELLO THERE!

Don't worry, you can try but even if you don't manage it you can still pop in to talk about it when the threads open :D You read the books already so you know what's going on :)

yayyyy what a great idea!!

I just finished reading the books for the first time not that long ago so I'm not sure I'll have time for a re-read but I'll try and I am SO up for the discussions and crying and squeeing about them!

:D

Well, please don't worry, you don't have to reread them esp. when you only just read them for the first time. You can still come over to talk with us about them! :D

Also, bring your friends! ♥

Hiya, darling! The fact that it's taken me to long to even respond to this post tells you everything about my free time. :) But I love The Raven Cycle and will try to participate as much as possible. So nice to be back on LJ for something fun! ♥
