Welcome to Week One of our Thick As Thieves reread! This week we’ll discuss Chapters 1 through 3, pages 1 - 85 in the hardback edition.

ninedaysaqueen said we can structure this however we want, so I decided to break it into the elements I like most to consider when I’m reading one of Megan’s books. For TaT, those would include an important theme, the hints and tricks that Megan lays out for us, the humor in the book, the growth of the main character(s), and the stories/poems. Add your comments and let’s start a discussion!


Numbers in parenthesis refer to page numbers in the American hardback edition.

Return to Speculation

I was going to wait until after the TaT reread for this, but the previous post got me thinking about this so I'm go to go ahead anyway.  With another year to prepare now, why not return to our regularly scheduled programming of speculation?

RoT Delay and Reflections/Re-read Update

Jan. 27th, 2019 | 06:51 pm
posted by: ninedaysaqueen in sounis

Hey, reprobates! If you haven't heard the news about the delayed release date for Return of the Thief, read about that in Megan's own words HERE.

I was disappointed for about five minutes, but then remembered my sneaking suspicions about the general silence from Greenwillow and MWT. For a book coming out in less than two months, there has been no arc, no promotions, no early reviews, no book tour, and almost no buzz in stark contrast to the release of TaT.

As I said, I was disappointed for about five minutes, but then realized I'm actually very okay with this. The announcement of RoT came, literally, the week I was starting a new job and planning going back to school in the fall to become an evil accountant (like Kamet), so I'm much happier that we now have more time to plan a celebration fitting of the final book.

Speaking of, the current reflections/re-read will continue as scheduled. I see no reason to cancel it. We'll just have to start calling it the "not-the-release-date" party! Expect to hear from me this summer about planning for the release of RoT in the summer of 2020. I'd like to get more community members involved and come up with some new ideas.

In closing, I just wanted to leave a note to please show Megan support. It's okay to be disappointed, but remember, the river knows it's time. :) We've waited more than two decades for this, another year and a half is, honestly, nothing.

If you have ideas on how to celebrate the release of RoT next year, please don't hesitate to share them with me or Checkers, thanks.
