The Best Read-Along Ever!

Listen Linda. (if you don't get this reference, you're welcome)

If there is ONE BOOK I could've made everyone read in 2014, it would've been THE WINNER'S CURSE. Now if there's ONE BOOK I could make you read in 2015, it is THE WINNER'S CRIME. This is one of my absolute favorite series EVER.


So I'm super excited to be teaming up with a couple of blogging buddies to bring you a read-along of The Winner's Curse and The Winner's Crime!


The read-along will be broken down into chapters, and will run from February 3rd - March 31st. We will share and discuss our thoughts on each week's chapters on the TUESDAY of each week. There is also an awesome giveaway sponsored by Macmillan that will run the entire time of the read-along. You could win a signed copy of The Winner's Curse & The Winner's Crime!! There will be tons of ways to enter and double/triple your chances of winning!

I hope you will join us and follow along!

This is one series you DO NOT want to miss out on!

As a general's daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions. One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin's eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him'with unexpected consequences. It's not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin. But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined.

Set in a richly imagined new world, The Winner's Curse is a story of deadly games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.

Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement…if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.

As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.

  1. Though I really couldn't imagine Harry Potter ever being remade (at least not for 10 years) as far as this dream cast goes there are some choices that I disagree with and others that ARE JUST SO RIGHT. I always thought David Tennant would be a great Remus Lupin and Benedict Cumberbatch would be PHENOMENAL as Voldemort. (A character who I was always a bit disappointed with in the movies).

  2. *claps*
    YAY I literally just reread this yesterday, but totally game to do it again.

  3. Also I think you forgot Ginny! Recasting for that character is urgently needed

  4. Sounds fun! I've been wanting to read The Winner's Curse. Here's my excuse! ;)

    I actually just got my copy of The Winner's Curse! I'm pretty excited to read it! :)

  6. I would fail so hard at this. The second people put constraints and time lines on when I'm supposed to read, I can't do. How silly is that?

  7. Haha. I'm normally the same way, but I won't have any trouble reading this one any time anyone tells me to. :P

  8. Yes!!!! I'm so excited for you!!

  9. It looks like a decent read! I enjoyed the excerpts a lot :)

  10. I don't want to see any more remakes, they already butchered the books enough. TV series please where we can have everything from the books
