#READCHAOS / (Re)Discover the Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness

A little while ago, fellow blogger Laala and I were talking about our love for Patrick Ness’ Chaos Walking, an utterly brilliant dystopian trilogy, and how we had not read it for a few years. We thought it was about time to pick up The Knife of Never Letting Go once again and we’d love for you to join us – and so #readchaos was born.

Yes, please do! Whether you have read Chaos Walking before or have never picked up a Patrick Ness book, you’re welcome to join in as we begin The Knife of Never Letting Go. You can use our banners above – or create your own!

We will begin Chaos Walking on 5th August until 5th September, which is when Patrick Ness’ newest book, More Than This, is published in the UK (and then a few days later in the US). If you think that you’ll be unable to finish all three books, do not worry – they’re over 1,500 pages after all – although we guarantee you’ll want to know what happens next… And feel free to jump in midway if you cannot buy/borrow/download the books before 5th August.

Start reading with us! Use #readchaos on Tumblr, Twitter or wherever you may be, when you talk about the books and to find other people taking part. You may also like to write reviews of the books, make videos, post pictures and quotes, or just talk about the fantastic characters – such as Todd and Manchee – as well as the world and story that Patrick Ness has created. Do remember that people read at different paces, so please mark spoilers clearly. Check prettybooks and distantheartbeats throughout for Chaos Walking-related posts, including our favourite quotes, illustrations and photos of the books. We both think Chaos Walking is one of the most accomplished trilogies in YA literature and we hope you enjoy discovering – or rediscovering – it just as much.

If you’re on Tumblr, you can also read my post about it here.

Without a filter, a man is just chaos walking.

  1. This is a great idea – I just finished reading The Knife of Never Letting Go for the first time last night, can’t wait to read book 2. Excitement! 😀

  2. Ooh, yay! I remember you telling me about this a while ago. This is the perfect opportunity for me to pick The Knife of Never Letting Go up 😀

  3. I’m about halfway through The Ask and the Answer, so this works out perfectly. 🙂 I can’t believe I waited so long to read this series!

  4. Just finished the second book and it’s definitely topped my list of best dystopian YA books ever!

  5. late but I’d like to say AUGH THESE EDITIONS OF THE BOOKS ARE TOO GORGEOUS!!! I saw Patrick Ness tweet the covers awhile back but the spines!!!! I kind of really want it now.
