Hello Fairy Friends! And, welcome back!

Our 4th Readalong is less than a week away! We’re reading ‘Circle of Shadows‘ by Evelyn Skye, which is our book of the month for January.

This book focuses on Sora and Daemon, two apprentice Taiga warriors approaching their graduation and readying themselves to officially become a member of the Society of Taigas. However, one day, on a routine scout mission they come across a mysterious camp. And what they find inside? Well, they are certain it will change their beloved country Kichona forever. Determined to prove themselves, they decide to take a risk more dangerous than anything they’ve done before. OoooOooooOoo!

Friends, I’m beyond excited to read this book with you. It’s definitely going to be a journey for us all! If you’ve participated with us before, you know the drill! But if you’re new, welcome!

We really hope you will join us all in reading ‘Circle of Shadows‘ together. We host this with the goal of bringing people together and discussing the book as a FairyLoot community. This really is just a great big buddy read! So how does this Readalong work? It’s quite easy really.

Every day I, your host for this Readalong, will post some discussion points or observations from the section of the book allocated for that day. The Readalong will last over the course of 7 days, from February 11th – 17th.  The below chapters are inclusive! The reading schedule is as follows:

11th of February: Chapters 1 – 10

12th of February: Chapters 11 – 20

13th of February: Chapters 21 – 30

14th of February: Chapters 31 – 40

15th of February: Chapters 41 – 50

16th of February: Chapters 51 – 60

17th of February: Chapters 61 – End

Each day we will tackle approximately 60-70 pages. If this is too much or too little for your usual reading speed, please feel free to adjust to your schedule! There’s absolutely no pressure if you want to read at your own pace and do your own thing. The daily posts will ready and waiting for you to still join in and discuss!

There will be spoilers for that allocated book section so we can freely share our thoughts for what just happened and predictions as to what will follow! I’m very excited to hear your thoughts and opinions!

As always, there will be a Readalong exclusive competition to win your next box for free! We always believe reading should be encouraged! Details on how to enter to come soon!

Instagram will remain a spoiler free zone, but please make sure to tag us in your Readalong stories when you get ready for a reading session, we often repost these and we love seeing you all comfy’n‘cozy and ready to jump into the next part of your adventure! It keeps us and others motivated (you have no idea how much it gets me excited to read)!

If you take Instagram photos of the book, you might also find your photo being featured in a post too (with due credit, of course!). Just remember to tag your Instagram photos with the #fairyloot hashtag.

You will of course be seeing me pop on Instagram stories every day to remind you which chapters we are reading that day. (We know some people like to set a handy phone reminder to get that reading done too!)

So friends, are you ready for a new adventure?

I certainly am. It’s time to become a Taiga warrior.

With love,
