The Broken Kingdoms Read Along: The Schedule

Chupacabra sacked out on the bed.

Hooray! We will be continuing our dissection of N. K. Jemisin‘s The Inheritance Trilogy. With The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms wrapping up next Monday, I am most pleased to announce the schedule for Book 2 in the series. I will be joined by Grace from Books Without Any Pictures and Lauren from Violin in a Void. This trilogy is a fractured or composite trilogy, meaning that each book is a story told from a different character. Hence, you can read any book in the trilogy without having read the others (though they are so awesome I think you would find it hard not to read the entire trilogy!).

The Broken Kingdoms – 396 pages
Week 1 Prologue – Chapter 4 (96 pages) Jan. 6th Books Without Any Pictures
Week 2 Chapters 5-10 (105 pages) Jan. 13th Dab of Darkness
Week 3 Chapters 11-16 (98 pages) Jan. 20th Violin in a Void
Week 4 Chapter 17 – END (96 pages) Jan. 27th Books without Any Pictures

Also, here is the schedule for Book 3, but I will throw up a reminder post as we near the start date.

The Kingdom of Gods – 575 pages
Week 1 Prologue – Chapter 4 (104 pages) Feb. 10th Dab of Darkness
Week 2 Chapters 5-10 (115 pages) Feb. 17th Violin in a Void
Week 3 Chapters 11-13 (119 pages) Feb. 24th Books Without Any Pictures
Week 4 Chapters 14-17 (117 pages) March 3rd Dab of Darkness
Week 5 Chapter 18 – END (116 pages) March 10th Violin in a Void

If you’d like to join us, please do! Leave me a comment or email me directly (nrlymrtl [at] gmail [dot] com) so we can put you on the list to receive the discussion questions a few days before post date. And if you think you want to be even more a part of madness and cohost, I’m willing to give up one or two of my dates – the more the merrier! Just leave a comment or email.

    Oh cool, I didn’t know you could read the books out of sequence! Now I can invite people who didn’t read the first book.

    Please sign me up! It may be tough for me to keep up 100%, with the Way of Kings read-along going on at the same time, but I’ve been meaning to get around to reading the second 2 books of this trilogy, and I’d really like to join you all.
