Reading Challenge: Realm of the Elderlings by Robin Hobb

In 2016 I joined the lovely Ju and Steph in reading all the of Twelve Planets, a project they called A Journey Through Twelve Planets.

Then, from Feb 2017 through mid 2018 Tsana and I read The Vorkosigan Saga both reviewing and then discussing each of them, which can be found here: Reading Challenge: The Vorkosigan Saga

And now Bethwyn and I will read each book in the five series that makes up the Realm of the Elderlings. All of which I’ve previously read, except for the last novel which I just can’t bring myself to just yet. Bethwyn is yet to read any of them.
