Readalong Banner: Tale of Yin by Joyce Chng

This February we’re doing a readalong for Joyce Chng’s The Tale of Yin, a duology of two novellas. I’m a little early with the announcement, as you’ll see from the schedule, but all the more chance for you to join us!

(I’m not as awesome at making readalong banners as Anya. *hangs head*)

The Book

The duology of Oysters, Pearls & Magic and The Path of Kindness sees the stories of Mirra and her daughter, Kindness, as they struggle to find their identities and selves on the planet they have called home. A feminist YA novella, the Tale of Yin looks at magic, privilege, the landscape and compassion.

Doesn’t that sound awesome? You can buy the ebook from Amazon, Smashwords and presumably everywhere Smashwords ships. You can also read the webserial version online here. The stories themselves are both novellas and the edition we’re reading also includes a few bonus stories (and recipes)!

The Schedule

Week 1: February 15th, Book 1: A Sea Of Waves, hosted by Lynn from Little Lion Lynnet’s (that’s me)
Week 2: February 22nd, Book 2: A Tree of Branches, hosted by Imyril from x+1
Week 3: February 29th, Sea Tales, hosted by Lisa from Over the Effing Rainbow
Week 4: March 7th, Ships’ Tales, hosted by Lynn from Little Lion Lynnet’s (me again!)

If you’d like to join us, you’ve got plenty of time before the first week’s worth of questions start and I hope you’ll enjoy the stories a lot! ^_^ If you don’t have a blog, you can join us at our GoodReads group or on Twitter.
