  1. This sounds like it's going to be a ton of fun! I have Clockwork Prince sitting right here on my shelf and I've been meaning to get to it, but it's so BIG and I'm busy between keeping up with my blog and planning edits for my own novel. This should actually work out for me--I love talking about the stuff I read, and reading this in little pieces should be easily managable. :) Can't wait to get started!

    1. Wonderful! I really hope you're able to join us Kathy! It's a lot of fun, and much easier to read a book this size when it's broken down into chapters. It's a lot of fun chatting with everyone about the book too. I'm excited you'll be taking part and I look forward to reading your comments ;)

  2. This is going to be so much fun! I've read Clockwork Prince already, but would love a re-read in wait to the release of Clockworkk Princess (:

  3. Looking forward to the read-along....Will you be making any buttons so I can post one on my blog?

    1. YAY! so glad you're joining us! I can not believe I have never thought about making buttons. What a great idea! I'll have to see if I can get one made real quick :)

    2. If you need help with that, just let me know. Anyone can feel free to 'steal' the logo for this one though, if that helps. ;)

  4. Definitely sounds fun!! :)Can't wait to break my heart again before Clockwork Princess comes out! :')

    1. Oh gosh! I'd rather have my heart broken from CP than Clockwork Princess. I'm scared for CP2 lol

    2. Aren't we all? If there's anything this fandom knows, it's that Cassie is a heart breaker. :')

  5. I already started rereading Clockwork Prince earlier this week, but I think I can restart it again for the read-along.

    1. Sweet! Looking forward to having you do the read along with us.

  6. This is my first read along! We'll see how long I last reading only one chapter a day lol

  7. I've been wanting to read Clockwork Prince since I finished the first book, but I haven't got around to it. I'm so glad you posted this so it finally gives me motivation to read it, or listen to it.

  8. Ha, if I registered twice, I'm sorry! Not sure if first attempt via iPhone worked. I just read CP a couple of months ago but no one that I know has read it so I never go to discuss! Totally down with a re-read alrady so I can chat up with you all. Thanks so much for organizing this, xoxo

  9. I'm so excited to take part!! I love the read-alongs. It's a great way to re-read the book before the next one comes out without getting behind on other reading. And it's so fun to interact with the other readers!!

  10. This sounds amazing. I've been worrying about re-reading it to be honest. Maybe it will be easier reading in stages :) Can't wait to start.

  11. So excited for Clockwork Princess!! This will be fun!

  12. I'm currently rereading the TMI series (for the 4th time? lol!), so this will be fun to catch any clues between the 2 series. Can't wait for Clockwork Princess, but also sad too, that it'll be over. Thanks for organizing!!

  13. This is my first time joining a read a long but I am excited. I love these characters and series. Looking foward to tge fun.
