So, if you didn’t know, one of my favourite authors ever, is Marie Lu.
Marie, I love you and all your works and would sell my soul for ARCs of any of your works.
Since Rebel (the fourth book in the Legend series) is releasing on October, my friends (aka some of my favourite people, like ever) and I decided to host a readalong for the Legend trilogy!
I’m seriously so excited for this, because 1) I have never co-hosted a readalong/readathon before, 2) I have the most amazing co-hosts, and 3) it’s Marie Lu.
And can we just appreciate the cover for Rebel, aka Marie Lu’s cover designers didn’t do her dirty for once?
Now, let’s just get into the details, shall we?
THE DETAILS (AKA THE RUNDOWN):
I’m drafting this post the day as it goes up (after having procrastinated and stressed out over homework), so I’m going to give the details in little sections, rather as a whole essay, especially since I’m lowkey DRAINED from school already (thanks, A Levels).
So that’s … fun.
WHAT: A three week-long readalong of the LEGEND trilogy!
WHY: To prepare for the release of REBEL by Marie Lu (and have some fun together, as a community, at the same tine!)
WHO (Part One): The readalong is going to co-hosted by some of my favourite people, May @ Forever and Everly, Julianna @ Paper Blots, Ilsa @ A Whisper Of Ink and yours truly! (I was going to make a Me! joke/reference, but couldn’t bring myself to do it because that song was a mess and a half).
WHO (Part Two): You! You all are invited to join in with us! Whether you’re reading the series for the first time with us, rereading after some time, or is a die-hard Marie stan, you cab totally participate!
WHEN: We are planning to read the series from Sunday, the 8th of September to Wednesday, the 25th of September! Please feel free to read at your own pace and subject to your own availability. So if you can’t keep up for whatever reason, please don’t stress!
Note: It is not compulsory to read all three books with us if you can’t/don’t want to, it’s totally fine to pick and choose which book(s) you’ll read with us!
The dates for each of the individual books are as follows:
LEGEND: Sunday, the 8th of September to Wednesday, the 11th of September.
PRODIGY: Sunday, the 15th of September to Wednesday, the 18th of September.
CHAMPION: Sunday, the 22nd of September to Wednesday, the 25th of September.
- The Twitter chats are every Saturday @ 8 AM EST (Time to be confirmed ASAP), and will be held after we finish each book, with the possibility of a Twitter chat about the whole series? I’m not sure yet, we shall see!
- However, live updates will be on a Twitter GC that we have/will create(d) specifically for this readalong! To join, reply to May’s Tweet, leave a comment here or just DM any of us ❤ This is a completely optional GC, of course!
- And of course, there is no obligation to participate in the GC or chats! Just feel free to readalong with us 😊
And, can we just appreciate this graphic that the other co-hosts made? They are all so amazing and brilliant! Their work could just step and I’d say thank you.
Also, name a more iconic duo than the smiley face and thumbs up emoji. I dare you.
I think that’s about it for now! I’ll add anything extra if I forget to.
Are you going to join us for the readalong? (Please say yes). Have you read the Legend trilogy, and if so, what do you think of it? What do you think of Marie Lu’s books? Do you have any other questions for the readalong?
I’m honestly so excited that I’m actually going to SCREAM.
