All You Need Is Kill Read-Along


I’m super excited to announce this read-along! This will be the first read-along I’ve hosted and I think All You Need Is Kill has a lot of great things going for it. It’s a work of translated fiction (originally written in Japanese), which is something I’d love to read more of to experience a diversity of writing styles and to get a feel for different cultures. It’s part of a manga genre targeted at young men, so I’m excited to bring some diversity to the readership of this book. It’s also being made into a movie, so it’s the perfect book for participants in my Book to Movie challenge to pick up. And it’s a short book, clocking in at just 200 pages with large text, so it shouldn’t be too hard to fit in even for those of us with full reading schedules. Speaking of schedules, here’s the schedule for the read-along:

May 3rd – Read-Along Starts

May 17th – Chapter 1 and 2 discussion questions posted

May 18th – Twitter Chat, 4pm EST

May 30th – Chapter 3 and 4 discussion questions posted

    Good luck with this! It doesn’t seem like my kind of book, and I’m swamped in May! I think if you did another one in the future, I’d do my best to join in. Right now, I’m just waaaaay behind on what I have already committed to.

    • Thanks Rebecca :) I’m not sure anyone’s going to sign up but I’m excited to read it either way and I can always try another more popular book to movie read-a-long later this year.
