First there are nightmares.
Every night Ellie is haunted by terrifying dreams of monstrous creatures that are hunting her, killing her.

Then come the memories.
When Ellie meets Will, she feels on the verge of remembering something just beyond her grasp. His attention is intense and romantic, and Ellie feels like her soul has known him for centuries. On her seventeenth birthday, on a dark street at midnight, Will awakens Ellie's power, and she knows that she can fight the creatures that stalk her in the grim darkness. Only Will holds the key to Ellie's memories, whole lifetimes of them, and when she looks at him, she can no longer pretend anything was just a dream.

Now she must hunt.
Ellie has power that no one can match, and her role is to hunt and kill the reapers that prey on human souls. But in order to survive the dangerous and ancient battle of the angels and the Fallen, she must also hunt for the secrets of her past lives and truths that may be too frightening to remember.

Angelfire #ReaditandReap Blueprint

The one thing that is required of the participants for this read-along is that your name needs to be on the linky list (which will be posted below). If you're going to be taking part in this read-along, please make sure your name is on the list so Nicole and I will know that you aren't cheating. All we need is your name and a link to where we can find you (i.e. goodreads, your blog, twitter, tumblr, etc.). As most things online go, we're going off the honor system here and if you say you did something, well... you know, make sure you did it. Nicole and I will be verifying everything and double checking all entries.

  • First off, the read-along starts on November 29th (that's today) and ends on Shadows in the Silence's release day which is on Tuesday, January 29th, 2013.
  • Nicole and I have divided up the chapters in Angelfire and Wings of the Wicked by the total number of weeks in this two month time frame and will be assigning chapters for you to read, accordingly.
  • Each week, there will be two posts (a Monday and Friday post) that you will need to keep an eye out for. It gets a bit sticky during this part but if you stick to me like super glue, it will be a piece of cake.
    • Monday: this post (which will start on Nicole's blog) will include the chapters you will need to read for that week as well as a discussion question that will get your mind going on the following chapters you'll be reading. If you answer the discussion question, you'll be entered into the monthly giveaway of winning a pre-order of Shadows in the Silence. This giveaway will be through Rafflecopter.
    • Friday: this post (which will start on my blog) will be a re-cap of the week where I'll be reminding you of the chapters you should have finished reading. Nicole and I will also be posting our answers to the discussion question at this time. Along with all of that, I'll be posting six trivia questions that Nicole and I came up with to quiz you of the chapters you just read. If you answer the trivia questions, you'll be entered into the grand prize giveaway which is a signed set of the entire Angelfire trilogy plus swag!
      • Also, if you get all six trivia questions answered correctly, Nicole and I will be send you some swag.
      • This giveaway will also be conducted through Rafflecopter.
    • As you read all of this, it doesn't seem to be making much sense but once the posts start, you'll see that they're actually simpler than they sound!
  • Now, let's take all of that info and pack it into a nutshell, shall we?
    1. Nicole will be posting on the first Monday (December 3rd) with the chapters you will be needing to read as well as the discussion question.
    2. I'll be posting on the first Friday (December 7th) with a re-cap of the week with a reminder of the chapters you finished reading, me and Nicole's discussion question answers, as well as a trivia quiz.
    3. The following Monday (December 10th) will then be my turn to post the chapters and discussion question.
    4. The Friday of that week (December 14th) will then be switched to Nicole where she will do the re-cap post.
    5. Basically, Nicole will post on Monday, I'll post on Friday then we'll switch and I'll post the following Monday with Nicole on that Friday. Like we said, it's kind of hard to follow right now, but once it gets going, it won't be so difficult!
  • So, if you answer the weekly discussion questions, you'll be entered to win a monthly pre-order of Shadows in the Silence. If you do the weekly trivia quiz, you'll be entered to win the grand prize giveaway of a signed set of the Angelfire trilogy.
  • In order to be involved in all of this, make sure you sign up below!
    • Reminder: sign-ups will be open until December 29th so if you want to take part but you're not sure how you're schedule will look, well you have a month to decide!

Me and Nicole's main goal of this entire read-along is to help get the word out about this series. It's amazing and so super awesome that we really just want more people to read it and become huge fans like ourselves. By hosting this read-along, we want all Angelfire fans to come together as we countdown to the epic finale that is Shadows in the Silence. We want to discuss possible theories about what will happen in the conclusion to this favorite series of ours, we want to draw the line between Team Will and Team Cadan and even Team Marcus and Team Nathaniel, and possibly, maybe even Team Bastian (I know you guys exist *__-), we want to talk favorite scenes, favorite quotes, favorite lines, favorite... everything about this entire series as a whole.

I've already mentioned it once or twice or a few hundred times but this series has seriously done something to me that I actually can wait until Shadows in the Silence. I don't want this series to end and I don't know how I'll take it because I'll be happy and excited yet super sad and a mess. Because of that, join Nicole and I as we prepare ourselves for this ending to a great and amazing world!

If you have any questions whatsoever, please don't hesitate to ask! We want to make this as smooth and simple as possible! We don't want to make it seem like such a daunting and stressful thing. We just want you to read the books and talk to us about it, really, lol! So if you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask Nicole and I. I'm definitely easier to reach via twitter so if you're on there, please send me a tweet and ask away: @BooksOverBoys. If you're not on twitter, you can find multiple ways to reach me here. As for Nicole, you can find ways to contact her on her sidebar via her blog.

Also, if you have anything you want to tell us about the series such as a funny memory or something you see when you're out and about that reminds you of the series, please tell us! I would love to hear all about it as I'm sure Nicole will as well!

And lastly, please help spread the word about the read-along! Here's the official read-along button! We want as many people as possible to take part in this!
