Welcome to the October monthly link-up for the 2020 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight!
Lots going on right now here: new school year (mostly remote learning), upcoming elections, continued pandemic, Halloween (which we can barely celebrate)… the list goes on. And it’s not much better in most of the rest of the world (though, be glad you don’t have to think about our elections). Good thing we still have our books to keep us sane! Thanks to everyone for sharing your discussions.
The winner of our August discussion challenge giveaway was Marie @ Drizzle & Hurricane Books. She got to pick a dystopian or book related to the pandemic in some way, shape or form, and she chose Cinderella Is Dead by Kaylinn Bayron. I’ve read it and really enjoyed it, so I hope you do too, Marie!
- 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!
- 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!
Featured Post/New Rafflecopter Entries!
Our post of the month for October (as chosen by Random.org) is Veronika @ Wordy and Whimsical’s “Friendships in Books: The Good and the Bad.” Commenting on that post gives you FIVE extra entries in the giveaway (if you already commented, that counts too!).
Also remember that there’s a new entry to the Rafflecopter: Comment on either of our monthly link-up posts telling us about a discussion you’ve particularly enjoyed this month, and grab yourself some extra entries!
For the October giveaway, I feel like we all need a little cheering, so I want you to pick a book that will make you happy. That could mean a funny book or a light and fluffy book, but if it would make you really happy to read Bram Stoker’s Dracula (it is also Halloween this month, after all), then you do you! 🙂
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 a $17 value.
Make sure to link up all of your October discussion posts here. This linky and the October giveaway will be open until November 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).
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
Go forth and discuss!

I guess it was overlooked but there’s no link to this page on the main 2020 link-up page! No matter, I found it!
Yes, I’m so sorry—I did overlook it this month and added it later!
Now, technically, this last post was published on November 1 where I am, but where you are, it was still October 31… The question is, should I delete it and wait for the November list?
[…] I haven’t done a discussion post in a while, didn’t sign up for a challenge or anything this year, but I had something that I’ve been thinking about this week, and I thought maybe I could actually get some people to join in and help me decide. Even thought I’m not part of a challenge, I’m going to link up over on Feed Your Fiction Addiction. […]
Had a big question I was debating with myself so I decided to do a discussion post today out of the blue! I didn’t join the challenge this year, but linked up anyway up above because I’d love to get some people helping me figure it out!
Ha! No problem at all. You’re always happy to link up—we don’t police the submissions to make sure you’re on the sign-up page. 🙂
[…] Well, it has once again been MONTHS since I’ve done a discussion post. But I had something pop into my head just recently that I wanted to talk about. Even thought I’m not part of a challenge, I’m going to link up over on Feed Your Fiction Addiction. […]
