Chaos Walking Week Kickoff!

Welcome to Chaos Walking Week!

During this week, I'm dedicating the blog to the Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness, an awesome young adult Sci-Fi series that is one of my absolute favorites. You can expect a new post every day during this week - all of it focusing on one or more of the books in this series.

There are three full length books in this series, as well as a short prequel: The Knife of Never Letting Go (#1), The Ask and the Answer (#2), Monsters of Men (#3) and the prequel The New World (#0.5).

In case you're not familiar (yet) with the series, here's the synopsis for the first book, The Knife of Never Letting Go:

Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee -- whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not -- stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden -- a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.

But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought?

In case that doesn't intrigue you, or if you want to know my thoughts, feel free to check out my review: clickie!

And because I might be a little biased, I've added a linkie thing to this post, so you can add your own reviews of The Knife of Never Letting Go. These can be written reviews, video reviews, picture reviews.. Whatever you like! The only thing I ask is that it's a spoiler free review, so new readers won't be spoiled in case they decide to pick up the book to read. That's all!

Leaves me to say I hope you have fun during this week! I'm very excited to host Chaos Walking Week, to spread the love and just talk to other fans of the series. Feel free to leave suggestions in the comments for what you'd like to see during this week! I already have the entire week covered with posts, but I'm always up for more awesome, especially if it's for a series I love - which definitely applies to this one.


  1. Such a big fan of this series. The books are one of the most intelligent I have read in years. And just simply amazing. Kind of wish they would get translated to Dutch already, because they deserve more shelfspace in the Netherlands (I have never seen them "in the wild" yet, in this country, have you?)

    Also, that was a subtle hint of "hello, it's always nice to meet a fellow Dutch book blogger"

    1. Yeah I was surprised they weren't translated to Dutch yet! I was convinced they were, until I searched at a couple online bookstores.. No luck! It needs to get here already, especially since they're turning it into a movie - it definitely needs shelfspace! And more love!

      And hi! *waves* :)
