#authorlove Challenge Sign-up Post

Author Love Challenge Michelle and Berls are at it again – only this time, Berls is trying to shift the ‘blame’ on Brandee *grins* The Author Love Challenge is a yearlong challenge where we commit to read as many of the books by an author as possible… In the current year. It’s a very laid-back challenge, it even starts a month late! However, the rules allow us to count books by our chosen authors that we read in January. The Author Love Challenge rules: Pick an author that you love and wish you’d read more of their books. Set a goal to read x number of books by that author by the end of the year. You can make your […]

2016 New Release Challenge Wrap-Up Post

2016 New Release Challenge Wrap-Up Post

Another year is over, and so, it’s time to wrap up the 2016 New Release Challenge, choose some giveaway winners, say goodbye to the old year, and hello to the new 🙂 2016 New Release Challenge Wrap-Up The 2016 New Release Challenge was a big success, as we were many people participating, and with a total of 687 reviews linked up by participants! (645 at the end of 3rd quarter) It’s been fun to see the variety of books that have been read, and equally interesting to see the ones that have been read by multiple participants. The Facebook Group has been present all through the year, but maybe not as active as it could be – if you have […]

#ReadIndie Challenge – Sign-up

#ReadIndie Challenge – Sign-up

Tracy @ Cornerfolds and Christina @ Books & Prejudice are hosting the Read Indie Challenge from December 1-16! And Isn’t it a great idea to help us feature more Indie authors for a fortnight? I have several Indie authors I love, but that not all that many people know about, and so I’m very happy to be able to showcase them and put them on everyone’s radar very soon 🙂 The Read Indie Challenge: So what is #ReadIndie all about? This isn’t necessarily a read-a-thon. Instead, the challenge is simply to post indie reviews for two weeks in place of the reviews you would normally post. However, each review you post and link up will gain you an extra entry […]

Blog Ahead October 2016 – Sign-up Post

Blog Ahead October 2016 – Sign-up Post

Last year, I was so, so happy when I found the Blog Ahead Challenge hosted by the wonderful Anna @ Herding Cats and Burning Soup. Blogging can become a tiny bit stressful every now and then, and having a buffer of posts already scheduled really helps. Right now, I have one week of posts scheduled, and this summer, I had weeks where I had no posts scheduled at all. While I didn’t let that stress me out – I was on vacation, after all – now, I would like to get my calendar all fleshed out once more. The Blog Ahead Challenge runs the whole month of October 2016, and anyone can participate.  You do need to have a blog, […]
