We are delighted to welcome Lucy, our Publicity Assistant, to the blog. In addition to being our brilliant Publicity Assistant, Lucy is also the avid blogger, The Book Belle. It recently came to our attention that Lucy hadn’t read the Mistborn series yet. Fear not, because over the next two months Lucy will be reading the Mistborn series and helping share the Mistborn countdown with us here on the Gollancz Blog, Goodreads, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Each week there will be a chance for you to get involved in the read along with exclusive giveaways, extracts, recaps and more. But don’t take our word for it, here’s Lucy to explain how the #MistbornMondays will work.
I’m Lucy – a vlogger under the channel name The Book Belle, a fantasy addict and an avid reader – and I have never read the Mistborn series. Shocking, I know! The Mistborn series is one that is so well-loved and talked about in the blogging community, as well as by any readers of fantasy, so myself and Gollancz have decided to spread the word.
Introducing . . . The Great Mistborn Readalong!
Over a course of two months, we’ll be reading the first three books in the series:
Monday 3rd August – Sunday 23rd August: The Final Empire (Book 1)
Monday 24th August – Sunday 13th September: The Well of Ascension (Book 2)
Monday 14th September – Sunday 4th October: The Hero of Ages (Book 3)
Every Monday, we’ll be posting our progress, our reviews and our general thoughts using the hashtag #MistbornMondays.
Tweet the hashtag with your progress or thoughts and every week, up until the final day of the readalong, we’ll be choosing one person each week to win a SIGNED hardback of Brandon’s latest novel in the Mistborn series, SHADOWS OF SELF, out 8th October 2015.
You can follow our progress on social media:
