We are loving everyone’s discussions! It’s awesome that you were all able to keep them coming even in the slower summer months!! You guys are amazing!
The winner of our May discussion challenge link-up was Sam @ We Live and Breathe Books! She chose The Anatomical Shape of a Heart by Jenn Bennett. That’s a personal favorite of mine, so I’m excited for her. Hope you enjoy, Sam!
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 are 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!
This month’s featured blogger (as chosen by Shannon & Random.org) is Jo @ Once Upon a Bookcase. Jo has posted many fantastic discussions!
Here are just a few of Shannon’s favorites:
- Mental Illness in YA Month Discussion: What Do We Want to See More & Less of in YA Novels Featuring Mental Illness?
- Side note from Nicole: I was literally just over on Jo’s blog reading these Mental Illness in YA posts and thinking they were amazing, and then I checked my email and saw that Shannon chose her for this month. It couldn’t be more perfect! I highly recommend you check these posts out because I’m loving them!
- Book Blog Pet Peeves
(Commenting on any of Jo’s discussions 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 August seems to be a big vacation/trip month, let’s do any book that involves a trip or holiday! Doesn’t have to be the main theme or anything, either- as always, pretty much anything goes because I am lenient 😀
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.
a Rafflecopter giveaway
Make sure to link up all of your August discussion posts here. This linky and the August giveaway will be open until September 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).
