  • The Lives of Tao (Tao #1) by Wesley Chu 
  • The Deaths of Tao (Tao #2) by Wesley Chu 
  • The Rebirths of Tao (Tao #3) by Wesley Chu 

From a Brian McClellan newsletter, I found out that Wesley Chu had coupon on his website that could be used on the Tao trilogy during the Black Friday weekend!

I had been wanting to read this series, and hadn’t planned on picking it up so soon – but there was a discount! And because it was from the author’s website, they came signed too 🙂

Have you read either of these series before? Get any good signings lately? Are you participating in The Bastard Read-Along? (If not, why not?!)

Let me know what’s good!

    I am a huge fan of Wesley’s series, I hope you enjoy it! I’m planning on reading The Gentleman Bastard series at some point, and I’ll be interested to check out your progress.


    • I was hoping that you might decide to join in the read-along! But after seeing you recent book hall – that was basically all you WoW picks! – I can’t blame you for still waiting 🙂 Just make sure you get to them before the 4th book comes out next year!


  2. I love both of these series! And the signed Tao books are awesome!

    Just finished the Lives of Tao – it was so awesome!! It’s kind of got a bit of it all– cuteness and funnyness and action-packedness and emotionally compelling-ness all rolled into one. 😀 Already have the Deaths of Tao on order!


  5. Awesome! I hope you enjoy! (And if once you get to The Rebirths of Tao, keep an eye out for my “cameo” as a vapid school nurse!) 😉

    Whaaat, I saw one of the other commenters mention that Lynch read-alongs are becoming a trend?

    And I’ve been stuffing the mention of it into every post I published recently, I think people are getting sick of hearing about it. 😀
