Read-along & Giveaway: Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs @Mercys_Garage @AceRocBooks @LoreleiKing @PRHAudio #Read-along #GIVEAWAY #LoveAudiobooks

Posted December 6, 2019 by Anne - Books of My Heart in Giveaway, Misc, Read-along / 27 Comments


I chose this series because it is my favorite genre – urban fantasy and one of my favorite series. I wanted a series with 8-12 books. These are mostly available at both of my libraries, in both ebook and audio formats.  Some of the other series I considered were less available at libraries, not available on audiobook, or more expensive to purchase.

You will have a 4 weeks to read each book. 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, Moon Called, by January 3.
  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 on a new adventure with me.
  6. Enter the giveaways!

    • Oh excellent! I’m looking forward to it also. I have read them all but a year apart on some and the first one so long ago. It’s like Kate Daniels because it’s a series I REALLY love and I’ve never taken the opportunity to read it all along, so I’m really very excited. It will be awesome to get your fresh observations and questions on those later books too!

  1. Love this series and my library does have most of the audios. I’d love to do a reread/listen with your group. I’ll probably be doing Smokebitten for a new release review near when it comes out, but I should be able to join you for most of the rest. Though, I might have to join the schedule with book two since I won’t be able to get to Mooncalled by the due date unless I can read the graphic novel version for that. LOL

    Thanks for setting this up, Anne!

    • I’m ecstatic you will be joining us! I’m excited to do it myself since I haven’t read the earlier books for awhile and it’s always fun to do them all in a row to keep the details fresh. I’m just sorry Smoke Bitten is in March and we will take all year to read the series.

      Would you be willing to share a review for one of the later ones like Silence Fallen or Storm Cursed since you are reading the whole series? We only need 3-4 paragraphs and if you want to share any observations or questions. It’s harder for me to do that part when I’ve already read the whole series and more natural when I haven’t (like with Alex Verus). Anyway, email me if you are interested. It can be a review you have already posted, of course.

    I’ve read all the books to date and love the series. I doubt I’ll participate in the read-along.

    • I haven’t tried the audios yet; I’ve been reading them. Now oddly I listen to audio for the Alpha & Omega series on audio. It’s a question of timing I think. I wasn’t listening to audiobooks (gasp!!!) at the time I started the series. Jennifer and Jonetta coverted me so series I have started later are more likely to be audio. If you have read them before though, let me know if you’d consider sharing a review of one of them. (It can be one you have previously posted and does not have to be long.)

  3. I was thinking of doing this one with you this time. But then I realized with the next book coming out in the spring, I didn’t want to wait to read it. Maybe I’ll pick and choose some of them to read with you all. I will definitely follow along the reviews! Great series.

  4. I am a little behind on the last 2 or 3 books from this series, so I’m excited to join in! Ive been reading the series since like 2010!

    • I’d be ecstatic to have you read along with us. The covers are amazing. I met the artist at DragonCon and he is so nice. And talented. I bought a print of the Night Broken cover I’ll post a picture of what it looks like at some point. I spent a bunch having it framed but it looks amazing.
