Hi, everyone! It’s September! Here in the US, that means back to school time, which means many of us are getting a whole lot busier. September is also a month that’s always PACKED with new book releases, so at least we have that for a little added cheer to our month. 🙂
The winner of our July discussion challenge link-up was Angela from Angel’s Guilty Pleasures. She won a book set in any country except the US, so she chose Moonshadow by Thea Harrison, in which the main character travels to the UK to search for answers about her childhood. Sounds intriguing!
If you don’t know what this challenge is all about or haven’t signed up yet (but want to), head on over to the challenge sign-up page to learn more! Even if you’d rather not join, we hope you’ll stop by occasionally to check out the MANY discussion posts that are being linked up here – there’s lots of great discussions going on!
We’re no longer giving discussion ideas each month (because not that many people seemed to need them), BUT you can check out our list of the topics we’ve suggested over the past two years if you need some inspiration. There are LOTS of ideas there, and I’m sure you’ll find one you love!
Looking for even more inspiration, or want to see some discussion posts as an example? Check out the discussion posts on Feed Your Fiction Addiction or It Starts at Midnight (click the links to be brought directly to our discussion posts).
This month’s featured blogger (as chosen by Nicole & Random.org) is Cilla @ Paved with Books! Cilla has featured many fantastic discussions on her blog. Here are just two of them!: (Commenting on these will give you extra entries in the giveaway, by the way—if you already commented on them when they went up originally, that counts too!)
Since September is such a HUGE month for new releases (is anyone else swimming in review books this month?), Nicole decided to give one of them away. The winner can choose any book that’s being released in September (or, if you feel like it, you can choose a book that was released in any September—even ten years ago. Why not?).
As always, the giveaway is open to anyone that The Book Depository ships to (or, if TBD doesn’t ship to you, you could choose an ebook!) up to $17 value.
Make sure to link up all of your September discussion posts here. This linky and the September giveaway will be open until October 7th (to give people a little extra time to link up – just in case you’re disorganized like we are). If, by some chance, you forget to link up a post this month, you can add it to next month’s linky (but no duplicates, please).
Go forth and discuss!
