It was only a couple of weeks ago that I shared on my blog some new books I had bought, including Susanna Clarke’s Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, as recommended to me by a friend. It seems like perfect timing that I then saw a read along for this novel, hosted by Vishy, from Vishy’s Blog, and Delia, from Postcards from Asia, which starts on the 11th January!
I have only participated in one read along since starting my blog (the beautiful and heart-wrenching novel by Markus Zusak, The Book Thief) and I really enjoyed reading with fellow bloggers and book lovers. It was interesting to stop and reflect after each section and read other people’s responses – I found it a fun and enriching experience, which is why I am participating in the read along for Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (plus it will encourage me to narrow my TBR pile down some more).
So, the schedule is as follows:
Volume I: Mr Norrell (261 pages) – review to be posted on 18th January
Volume II: Jonathan Strange (368 pages) – review to be posted on 25th January
Volume III: John Uskglass (369 pages) – review to be posted on 1st February
