Hello Fairy Friends!
Welcome back to another readalong! I hope everyone is doing well! Our May readalong starts on Monday and I am so, so excited to chat about this book with you all. This month we are reading Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust! This book is inspired by Persian mythology and is described as a captivating and utterly original fairy tale about a girl cursed to be poisonous to the touch, who discovers what power might lie in such a curse…
I can’t wait to get into it, it sounds SO good!
As I said, the readalong starts on Monday so today I bring you the schedule to help you plan your week and get in that reading time each day!
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. There is a comment section under each post & we love seeing your thoughts too! This Readalong will last over the course of 5 days, from July 13th-17th. The below chapters are inclusive! The reading schedule is as follows:
13th July: Prologue – Chapter 6
14th July: Chapters 7 – 12
15th July: Chapters 13 – 17
16th July: Chapters 18 – 24
17th July: Chapters 25 – 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 be 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 cosy and ready to jump into the next part of your adventure! It keeps us and others motivated!
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 pages we are reading that day. (We know some people like to set a handy phone reminder to get that reading done too!)
Are you ready to get swept up in this fairy tale?
Say hello to one another in the comments, whether you’re a returning FairyLooter or a new one, and I will speak to you on Monday!
