Hello lovelies! I’m super excited to be participating in this readalong! I first read The Island last year (I think?) and just recently finished the trilogy. It’s one of those series that was consistent the whole way through which I was super thankful for. Now I get to share my love of this series with all of you by reading the first book in the trilogy, The Island, together!
What is it?
This is a month long readalong for The Island by S. Usher Evans (which is free, links below). We’ll be reading 5 chapters a week (they aren’t that long really) in anticipation for the release of The Union, which is the trilogy finale, on February 14th.
**Comment below to let me know you’re participating!!**
What’s this about teams?
You absolutely do not have to participate in the teams but it’s highly encouraged! There are two teams, #TeamTheo and #TeamPrinceling based off of the two main characters in the books. I’m the team lead of #TeamPrinceling so I strongly encourage you to join that team. These two teams earn points by joining the readalong, tweeting, posting reviews and participating in other events we might have planned. The winning team will get some cool goodies and the top 2 point earners for each team will win an extra special prize!

Prince Galian is third in line to the throne, but prefers his place as a resident at the Royal Kylaen Hospital. When his father urges him to join the military to help reclaim their colony, Galian is forced to put aside his oath to Do No Harm and fight a war he does not believe in.
Across the great Madion Sea, Captain Theo Kallistrate dreams of a day when she is no longer bound by conscription to fight for her country's independence. But when the Kylaens threaten, honor and duty call her to the front lines to fight off the oppressors.
When an air skirmish goes wrong, both Theo and Galian crash on a remote island hundreds of miles from either nation. Grievously injured, Theo must rely on Galian's medical expertise, and Galian must rely on Theo's survival skills, to live another day in a harsh and unforgiving terrain.
Can they put aside their differences long enough to survive? Or will the war that brought them to the island tear them apart?
