Hello Fairy Friends!
Welcome back, it’s time for the first readalong of 2021! I hope everyone is doing well! Our November book readalong starts on January 11th! This month we are reading These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong! This is the enemies to lovers book we’ve all been waiting for. Rival gangs and a Romeo and Juliette retelling, in 1962 Shanghai, whatever could go wrong?
It sounds violent and I am slightly nervous to start it haha!
As I said, the readalong starts on January 11th 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 January 11th – January 15th. The below chapters are inclusive! The reading schedule is as follows:
11th January: Epilogue – 8
12th January: 9 – 16
13th January: 17 – 24
14th January: 25 – 32
15th January: 33 – The End
Each day we will tackle approximately 90+ 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 getting reminders on Instagram stories every day of which pages we are reading that day. (We know some people like to set a handy phone reminder to get that reading done too!)
Let us delve into the heart of Shanghai, shall we?
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!
