{Sign Up} Elementals Read Along

Sunday, April 7, 2013 with 56 comments
Elementals Read Along


As part of the Spirit Blog Tour hosted by The Midnight Garden, Steph from Cuddlebuggery and I have been chosen as Elemental Virgins, meaning we are complete newbies to the series and are giving up our Elementals v-cards to those Merrick boys we've heard so much about.  In addition to hosting one of the hotties characters from the series on the tour, we are also co-hosting a read along and we'd love it if you'd join and pop your Elementals cherries with us!

The read along is for the first three full-length novels in the series:

Storm (Elemental, #1)Spark (Elemental, #2)Spirit (Elemental, #3)
Click on the images above to be taken to the Goodreads page for each book.

Here's the schedule for the read along:

April 15th - 28th - We'll read Storm cover to cover and discuss on one of our Goodreads threads.
April 29th - May 12th - For the duration of these two weeks, we'll be reading and discussing Spark.
May 13th - May 26th - For everyone who already has an advance copy of Spirit, we'll be finishing up this book just in time for it's official release date on 5/28.


Elemental (Elemental, #0.5)Additionally, the publisher is giving everyone free access to the Elemental novella for the months of April and May.  You can get your copy by going here and entering promo code VCARD.  This link will be active until May 31st.

We'll be reading this novella on Sunday, April 14th, in preparation for the official read along.

ETA:  Kensington is having issues with the download of the novella but expects the issue to be fixed within 12 hours.  Lindsey also let us know in the comments that anyone desiring a physical copy of the novella might be able to find it in the first book as bonus material.



Interested in joining us as we lose it to the Merrick boys?  Then link up below and grab the badge below for your blog!

In addition to the tour-sponsored giveaway, Steph and I will each be giving away a signed set of the first three Elementals books at the end of the read along.  With the completion of each book, more possible entries will be added for participation in discussions, reviews, etc.  This giveaway is US only, sorry!

We have a week to stock up on provisions in preparation for all the swooning we're about to do as we prime ourselves to lose it to the Elementals series.  I can't freaking wait!!!

Big thanks to Wendy at The Midnight Garden, Brigid Kemmerer & KTeen for this opportunity!

    1. No, you can totally link to your Goodreads account. In fact, that's where we'll be discussing the books as we finish each one. =)

  6. Hey Jen! When I tried to download the .5 novella, it wouldn't download. Do you have any idea how I can? Thanks!

    1. I just tried it myself and got the following message when I tried to download it: The requested eBook title is currently not available for download at this time. This most often occurs when the title has not been released by the publisher for general distribution. Please try again later.

      I've contacted someone for assistance and will let you know what I find out. Thanks for letting me know!

    2. I got the same message when I tried to download it. It says the book is out of stock. I bought the kindle edition for $0.99 anyway.

      Delete
    3. I actually checked a paperback copy out from my local library and the cover says "Includes bonus novella" and when I looked it's Elemental. I think its the whole novella too. I don't know if that info would help anyone out at all.

    4. Okay, guys. Kensington (the publisher) says that the outside vendor they use for the delivery of their ebooks is having problems with the files. They're working on the problem and expect it to be fixed within 12 hours.

      And thanks for that suggestion, Lindsey!

  7. Oh my stars, look at all the people signed up for this readalong! Yay! You guys are going to have a blast reading this series, I just know it. Thank you SO much for being one of our virgins...though I don't think you'll find it a sacrifice to be pushed towards these boys. ;)

  12. So I told you the other day that my library informed me that it was going to take at least two weeks to get me a copy of Spark on twitter (lyns8705). I sent them a recommendation to purchase the kindle edition for their electronic library and to put me on hold first in line... just got an email. They bought it & put me first in line, so I will be starting Spark on time! Very, very happy & excited!
