So I promised this post a little while ago, and then life took the wheel and I almost forgot. But it’s here now – my schedule for our SciFi Month Readalong of Winter’s Orbit by Everina Maxwell! Check it out below.
Prince Kiem, a famously disappointing minor royal and the Emperor’s least favourite grandchild, has been called upon to be useful for once. He’s been commanded to fulfill an obligation of marriage to the representative of the Empire’s newest and most rebellious vassal planet. His future husband, Count Jainan, is a widower and murder suspect.
Neither wants to be wed, but with a conspiracy unfolding around them and the fate of the Empire at stake, they will have to navigate the thorns and barbs of court intrigue, the machinations of war, and the long shadows of Jainan’s past, and they’ll have to do it together.
So begins a legendary love story amid the stars.
So here’s my intended reading schedule, with questions going up on or by each Thursday and posts going up on Sundays, or on weekends. I’m playing it a bit loose because that’s how I like it, and I don’t like being strict about scheduling and I know not everyone else does either. And if anyone’s interested and would like to host a week, let me know!
- Week 1: Chapters 1 through 6, with posts on Sunday 7th November
- Week 2: Chapters 7 through 15, with posts on Sunday 14th November
- Week 3: Chapters 16 through 22, with posts on Sunday 21st November
- Week 4: Chapters 23 through End, with posts on Sunday 28th November
I’ll also be posting the schedule to the SF/F Readalongs group on Goodreads if anyone would prefer to keep track of it there, but comments here are open for anyone who’s up for taking part.
As for the readalong banner: you’re welcome to use it for your posts, or to come up with your own if you prefer! Hat tip to imyril, once again, for coming up with it.
