It’s day 4 of our read-along blog tour! If you didn’t know, me and Sophie are hosting a read-along of A Change Is Gonna Come, a BAME anthology all about change. We’ve both been waiting to read this collection for a long time, and reading a story a day means we get to discuss everything together. Which is GREAT!

It’s the first day of our A Change Is Gonna Come read-along and blog tour! I’m so excited to start reading the stories with everyone and especially for some excellent blogs to join in on the fun! I’ve been looking forward to reading this BAME anthology since YALC this year (as there was such a huge hype around it), so it feels great to finally get around to reading the first story.

We’ve held quite a few read-along’s on this blog so far, Christmas, Halloween and ones just for fun. They’re an excuse for me and Sophie to read something together more than anything and get chance to talk about a book when we’re on exactly the same page. Especially with our last few, more and more people have joined in, and we have another one for you right now.

We’re on to the last few days of our Christmas read-along now, and to be honest, i’ll be sad when it finishes. We’re on the 11th story out of 12 today, which is Star of Bethlehem by Ally Carter. So far we’ve read some of the festive stories by David Levithan, Gayle Forman and many more acclaimed authors. It’s definitely got me a little more in to the Christmas stories, and without a doubt has made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

How are you all doing with the read-along? A few weeks ago we announced our Christmas read-along which started on the 14th of December. This year we’re reading My True Love Gave To Me edited by Stephanie Perkins, which is a festive short story collection of all your favourite YA authors. We’re reading a story a day for the next 12 days, so there’s plenty of time to join in or catch up!

Last year we did a Christmas read-along of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, and we enjoyed it so much that we’ve set up a Christmas Read-Along for Christmas 2016! One of our favourite things over on this blog is to read books with our friends, getting different opinions and views as you’re reading something together. It also allows you to have so many people to talk about what you’re reading with. It’s definitely worth the time and effort!

Our Halloween Read-Along has started! This year we have chosen to read Carrie by Stephen King for our little read-along, which is basically another excuse for me and Sophie to get some books read that we’ve been meaning to read for a long time! The read-along this year is running from the 26th of October to the 6th of November, which is plenty of time to get such a short book read.
