ENDED! But you’re always welcome to do this yourself.
So the Parasol Protectorate Facebook Group voted, and the Coop de Book (along with them) are doing a massive Parasolverse read along for 2019, Gentle Reader.
I’ll keep pace here in the blog, in the Facebook Fan Group, on Twitter, and with the Chirrup. Skye will try to stay on top of the Goodreads Group. I’m going back through and finding fun behind the scenes and research blog posts, so when we start each book’s reread, I’ll post an update with yummy stuff to go alongside.
It’s going to be intense but FUN!
HERE IS THE 2019 READ-ALONG SCHEDULE
January 1/1-1/6 The Curious Case short story
January & February The Finishing School series
March 3/4-3/10 Poison or Protect novella
March & April & May The Parasol Protectorate series
May 5/20-5/26 Romancing the Inventor novella
May & June First 2 Custard Protocol Books, Rue’s POV
June 6/24-6/30 Romancing the Werewolf novella
July 7/1-7/14 Competence
July 7/15-7/21 How to Marry a Werewolf novella
The plan is to chat about the books as we read them and in general, both on the Goodreads group and the Parasol Protectorate group. I’ll try to stay on top of posting about which book we are on and hopefully those who are keeping pace will help me with this.

Books recommendations and favorite things that make me happy will continue to show up each month in the Chirrup.

Direct from Gail
“They both help each see each other for what they truly are and what it means to be family. I love it when books are able to do this and especially love it G.L. Carriger does it, because they do it in such a way as to open your eyes to all forms of love and acceptance. The way our world is becoming we need more books and characters that not only look different than us but love and act differently than us.”

Quote of the Day:
Questions about Gail’s Parasolverse? Wiki that sheez!
“I suspect it may be like the difference between a drinker and an alcoholic; the one merely reads books, the other needs books to make it through the day.”
(Interview with The Booklovers blog, September 2010)”— Gail Carriger
But I can re-read them so much faster than that pace? How can I still participate?
Well, you can read all the extra content I’m posing to go with, I suppose?
^^No one says you have to ONLY read Parasolverse books if you read that fast. I also read very quickly and just plan to add these into my TBR for each month/week!
So excited for this readalong! Thank you to Gail for putting the schedule and stuff together!
This read-along is an excellent idea, but also sheer madness. I would like to do it in full, but I have still so many other books to read and films and series to view. I will limit the read-along to the Custard Protocol, since I have not read Competence yet (shame on me!).
I will definitely try to keep up while also juggling my class readings! This is wonderful idea cant wait to jump in a bit late
