Ah, thought it might be a sequel or something. After getting tired out by Stairs, relax with some Chairs.  8)

City of Chairs needs to be some sort of dark fantasy / horror. When the music stops... SOMEONE DIES!

City of Stairs has Turkish translation but City of Chairs does not. Which one are we going to read?

City of chairs was a typo there is no book called city of chairs but there should be 😀 city of chairlifts would have been the sequel.

Hey, maybe some other languages may join us, too? Or, maybe I should read it in English :) I'm not sure.. How should we proceed? Tell me early since I did not buy the book yet :)

Buy the cheapest  one  :D

http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/read-alongs/what-is-a-read-along/

I’m going to split the book into five sections of 20% in the read along book sub forum. I haven’t got chapter numbers in my book just the names of chapters.


First 20%
Someone even worse- Unmentionables

Second 20%

Dead language- Dangerously honest

Third 20%

What History tells us- Recreation

Forth 20%

You will know Pain- The Divine City

Last 20%

Family ties- End

I will be picking  a new book in Jan  2020 for the Book club. Hopefully I can start doing one book a month  in the new year.

I  will tell you the book title in dec 2019 for time to get hold of the novel.
