Read-along: The Bitter Twins by Jen Williams (week 5)

Wow. Just … wow. These last few chapters have left me near speechless (ha! Not likely!!) and utterly gobsmacked. So without further ado, let’s tackle the most excellent imyril’s (There’s Always Room for One More) prompts. You know the drill by now, I think: SPOILERS alert!   Week 5 – Chapters 47 to the end So many betrayals, Which one surprised you the most/least? So many! I’m not even sure where to begin. I was least surprised by Tyranny’s betrayal, and yet there were quite a few details I’d not guessed, like her being a Winnowry agent (!!), Okaar being … Continue reading Read-along: The Bitter Twins by Jen Williams (week 5)

Read-along: The Bitter Twins by Jen Williams (week 2)

Hot on the heels of week 1, here’s my week 2 post. Prompts this week are from the fabulous Lisa of Dear Geek Place and I hope I don’t have to remind you that huge SPOILERS may occur as I babble on excitedly about this instalment; (presumably this is what it was like to read a Dickens serial back in the day – read it, talk about it with fellow readers, wait impatiently for the next part – which is a fun thought for me, and probably of no interest to anyone else).     Week 2 – Chapters 13 … Continue reading Read-along: The Bitter Twins by Jen Williams (week 2)
