It’s Time To Start The Dresden Files Reread!

Hello, Book Lovers!

As you have hopefully heard, the long-awaited next book in the Dresden Files series, Peace Talks, is scheduled to publish on July 14. That’s fourteen weeks away. But since there are sixteen novels in the series, that means I’m slightly late in starting my reread of the series so I remember what the heck is happening in the Dresdenverse when the new book comes out.

UPDATE: Head on over to the EW website for an exclusive excerpt from the book!

The Jim Butcher website is hosting a read-along of all the novels starting this week, so if you feel so inclined, join the Goodreads group and have some great book discussions with other fans. The Goodreads group is only focusing on the main novels, though. If you are a completist like me, you may want to read all the novels, short stories, novellas, and graphic novels. So I’ve put together a schedule for those as well. It follows the Goodreads schedule, but includes more than just the one novel a week in some cases. I’ll post the schedule below.

Also, it’s the Year of Dresden at the Jim Butcher website. Every Tuesday they’ll be dropping microfiction, new announcements, and more. So if you’re a fan, head on over, sign up for the newsletter, and let the year of goodness begin!
