So I don’t actually need an excuse to re-read this series. I just wanted to have a party and invite everyone to join me. But if you don’t want to join me, I’ll have all the fun and keep all the prizes for myself! lol.  This is my favorite author, and I’ve never read anything I didn’t love by them.

I started this series by getting paperback books at the library and devouring them. I then bought them all for my Kindle and started pre-ordering them as they released. I’ve got some in paperback and audiobook format, also. For this re-read, I’m going to try to listen to some, as I have not listened to the audiobooks yet.

You will have two weeks for every book but the first one, which you have a week. There will be games, discussion, prizes, reviews and fun with each book. The prizes will mostly be digital books from Amazon, so that is open to anyone who has an email and can receive an ebook from Amazon. They can be read on a computer, smartphone or Kindle.

 

Here’s your to-do list:

  1. Find your copies of these books, borrow them from a friend, get them at the library or buy them.
  2. Read Book 1, Magic Bites, by next week Jan 15th.
  3. Make a list of a favorite quote or two as you read the book.
  4. If you haven’t read the books before, make a list of questions you have for the discussion. If you have read them, please don’t spoil new readers.
  5. Comment here and let me know if you have read them before or if you are starting the greatest reading of your life.
  6. Enter the giveaways!

About Ilona Andrews

“Ilona Andrews” is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.)

Gordon and Ilona currently reside in Texas with their two children and many dogs and cats.

They have co-authored two NYT and USAT bestselling series, the urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and romantic urban fantasy of The Edge and working on the next volumes for both.

    I’ve read all of them in book and digital form and listened to most of the as audiobooks as well. One of my all-time favorite series from a favorite author.

    Anne – great idea for a read along. I adore this series more than words. It’s my favorite ever. I’ve read the books (kindle/paperback) and listened to them (twice at least). I know I’ll listen to at least Magic Binds before Triumphs comes out. *cue the sobbing* I don’t want it to end!

    • yes, exactly. Even if no one commits to joining me all the way through – I’m doing it! I have re-read Magic Bites and I’m surprised how my perspective has changed or I saw things I missed previously.

    • Well it doesn’t hurt to be a little ahead but I am also going to stretch it out over the time to savor it longer, enjoying it more. It’s my FAVORITE.
