December 2020 Monthly (& Year-End) Wrap-Up Round-Up Link-Up & Giveaway

December 29, 2020 Giveaways (Ended), Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up 30

The Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up is hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight.

The November giveaway ends soon, so head over there for your last chance to enter!


Important Question About the Giveaway:

So, we’ve noticed that there isn’t a high level of participation in the giveaway, and we’re trying to figure out why. If you don’t regularly participate in the giveaway, can you tell us why either in the comments or via DM. Is it because you’re not particularly interested in the books we have to offer? Or is commenting on other people’s posts too much work? Or does it feel like the same people win too often? Anything we could do to make you more likely to enter? Or is this giveaway just not worthwhile. We’d love your feedback!


This is the link-up and giveaway for our December wrap-up posts.
OR since this is the end of 2020, you can also feel free to link up any and all
End of Year wrap-ups as well!

If you don’t already know about the Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up, read the information below:

Every month, at the end of the month, we’ll put up a monthly wrap-up link-up post where everyone can link up their month-end posts. There are no specific requirements for what needs to be in your post, as long as you have a book blog and your wrap-up summarizes your month in some way.

road-trip_ad77design_element03The round-up will include a giveaway that encourages people to visit YOUR month end wrap-ups, giving entries for commenting and/or sharing.
road-trip_ad77design_element03 Anyone can participate in the giveaway—you won’t have to actually link up in order to participate.

Giveaway

We created this giveaway to encourage people to visit people’s monthly wrap-up posts. There are entries for commenting on the wrap-up posts in the link-up.

The giveaway is open to everyone! You don’t have to link up to the wrap-up round-up to be eligible.

The Make Me Read It Giveaway

For this giveaway, I made a list of (some of) the books on my shelves that I’ve been meaning to read for ages and haven’t gotten to. The winner will choose a book off the list that you want, and I will give myself the rest of the month to read it and then send it off to you.

More fun with this giveaway: If you would like (this is not required), we could then review the book together.

Disclaimer: I’m not guaranteeing a certain format for this giveaway—could be ARC, paperback or hardcover—and I’m reserving the right to keep my own copy of the book if I absolutely adore it (I’ll buy you a copy and send it).

Check out the list below to see what books you can choose from if you’re the winner. Since I don’t want to leave my international readers out, the giveaway is open internationally as long as TBD ships to you (FYI, I will be sending the least expensive format available).

Clicking on the links in the list will bring you to the book in Goodreads.

Just follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter to enter!

    I don’t usually participate in the giveaway for two main reasons:
    1. I can afford to buy myself books so I like to leave giveaways open to those who have a smaller book budget than I do, and
    2. I feel like I should add my link in order to participate (though I know it says I don’t have to, that’s a me thing) and I don’t remember to come back here after my post has gone live.

    I do think the “make me read it” giveaway is a really neat idea, though!

    Oh no! I’m so sad that you haven’t been getting much participation. I personally love this monthly post and look forward to it. My participation is spotty on both ends (both posting a monthly round up and checking the round ups for others) simply because of time. During months where I have more going on or am feeling more stressed, I do not always find the time to do this. But…..I do enjoy participating when I am able to. Not sure if that feedback helps…..but I would be so sad to see this go away!

      We definitely don’t plan to have the Wrap-Up Round-Up go away; we’re just trying to decide if the giveaway part isn’t worth it. We might just take out that aspect and stick with the link-up. We haven’t decided for sure, though!

  3. Lisa Mandina (Lisa Loves Literature)

    I honestly don’t enter for the same reasons as someone above said. I already won once and have yet to read the book. Sorry. I’ll let someone else win! I like to come and see other people’s links to go comment, but I have to cut back on winning books as many as I still have piled up to read. 🙂 Thanks for doing all this organization though! I appreciate it!

  4. Lory

    Same here, I have too many books already to enter giveaways for more. I would understand letting this one go and hopefully it wouldn’t affect the amount of visiting activity. I enjoy doing this linkup just to see others posts, no other incentive needed.

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      Originally, a big part of my hope with the giveaway was that it would help encourage people to visit more of the wrap-ups, but I do think that a lot of people check out the posts even without entering the giveaway—so maybe that just means that the link-up doesn’t need a giveaway. Hmmm… we’re thinking on this.

  5. Dianthaa

    Same as the others, I like to check and comment on other’s posts (time allowing) but I’ve got too many books to read and with my post-office being shoddy I hardly ever enter giveaways. And post here is really shoddy so I’d feel bad winning a giveaway and then having the book get lost in the mail.

  6. Mar @ BOOKIVERSE

    sorry to hear about the low participation! I don’t participate in giveaways often and I think humankind is demotivated in general so hope things will look better as we get more into this new year. I know I’m very excited to be part f this feature again!

  7. Mar @ BOOKIVERSE

    oh man… I can’t with myself. So I thought I was on the other post signing up for the 2021 challenge! That’s why I added my January post. LOL

    If you are doing some housekeeping you can delete. I already added to the right place

    So when I came back I realized that the giveaway is after the link up which I thought was the end of the post and I didn’t see it!

    Even though the title says “giveaway” I tend to forget there is a giveaway while I’m reading the post and linking. I have participate in giveaways on your post when they are on a location that reminds me of it 🙂

    Hope that feedback helps 🙂

  8. Aj @ Read All The Things!

    I entered the giveaway! I think other people have already said the reasons why I don’t enter a ton of giveaways. I have access to a used bookstore and a library. I usually have 50 unread books sitting around. I feel like I should leave giveaways open to people who are less spoiled than me. But, I’ll happily enter if you need more entries. I love hosting giveaways and don’t want them to go away.

  9. Kym

    I usually don’t enter the giveaway because I’m not familiar with many of the titles and so I just don’t take the time. And like others, my TBR stack is already pretty high! I do my best to pay visits to other blogs and comment, as I really do enjoy that, but finding the time to do it is hard.
