BLOGTOBER Day 1: The start of #ACOTAlong

BLOGTOBER Day 1: The start of #ACOTAlong

I’m going to regret this decision, but I’m giving Blogtober another try.

I last attempted it two years ago, and everything was going swimmingly until we moved into our house halfway through the month and had no WiFi, so I physically couldn’t post for a couple of weeks. Awkward!

Then last year I didn’t even bother, because I was seven months pregnant, exhausted and still working pretty much full time. I was already juggling so many balls that there was no reason to add another one, especially because I knew I was going to end up failing and it was just going to make me feel deflated.

However, despite the fact that 2020 is a steaming heap of garbage, my productivity has been slowly increasing over the last few weeks so why not scare it away by undertaking this momentous task?! Blogtober is actually seeming possible. I’ll probably change my mind by the end of the week, though.

For my first post of the month, I thought I’d shine a light on my very own readalong, #ACOTAlong. Starting today and continuing for the next four months, I’m inviting anyone who wants to read (or reread) the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas to join me in reading them before the release of A Court of Silver Flames in February.

I’ve talked a bit more about #ACOTAlong during my announcement video on YouTube and over on the Twitter page, but I thought why not promote it here as well?!

If you’re interested in joining us, grab a copy of A Court of Thorns and Roses and join in. Here’s the schedule for this month:

This is the shortest book in the series (except for the novella, A Court of Frost and Starlight, which we’re reading in January to give anyone who falls behind a chance to catch up) so hopefully it won’t be too hard to squeeze it in alongside Blogtober.

I hope you’ll choose to join us, as this is the first readalong I’ve ever hosted and I don’t want it to be a bust. As long as I manage to get them all read by February it’ll feel like a success no matter how many people do (or don’t!) participate!

See you tomorrow,
