Reblogged from: Moonlight Reader
All right, everyone, open thread for April buddy reads/readalongs/etc.
What I know so far:
Discworld is reading the 4th Discworld book, Mort, which is also the first in the “Death” subseries. The buddy read starts on April 1, and continues through the end of April, so you can jump in any time!
BrokenTune, Lillelara and I are planning a buddy read of this collaborative novel by various authors of The Detection Club.
The Agathytes are reading Crooked House
Chris’ Fish Place, Tigus & I are discussing a Maigret-along, although we haven’t identified a book or a date.
Themis & I are going to continue with reading Agatha’s plays, planning on Murder on the Nile, although I don’t recall if we set a date. Sometime in April is my recollection – Themis, did we actually pick a date?
There’s also been a lot of talk about the RITAs and how authors of color aren’t nominated/don’t win in a way that suggests a hostility of romancelandia towards those authors. I have been interested in reading something by Beverly Jenkins for a while, and would love to buddy read with other readers. When I asked Ms. Bev which of her books she would recommend a new reader, she suggested Indigo, so I’d love to start with that one!
If you are hosting a buddy read that you want me to add to the post, put it in the comments. If you are interested in getting one going, put it in the comments and we’ll see what develops!
