Book Blog Discussion Challenge, Challenges, Let's Discuss 31

Hey, everybody! So, 2017 is almost here (yikes!) and Shannon and I thought it might be nice to do a little check-in with everyone before we start the 2017 Book Blog Discussion Challenge. We want to know how it’s going for you guys. Personally, I love the Discussion Challenge—it’s one of my favorite parts of blogging—but there’s always room for improvement, right? (Or maybe not, but if that’s the case, we want to hear that too.) I was planning to do a whole poll thing, but somehow I got stuck and couldn’t get it to work the way I wanted it to, so in the interest of time, I decided to just ask a few basic questions: If you’ve participated in the challenge: Is there anything that you would change about the challenge? Any suggestions for future giveaways or ways to spice up the challenge? Or is everything perfect and… Read more »

Welcome to the November monthly link-up for the 2016 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight! Well, our year is coming closer to ending and, as usually happens at this time of year, our discussions are dwindling a bit. But don’t give up yet! There are still plenty of things to discuss in 2016! The winner of our September discussion challenge link-up was Cilla from Paved with Books. She chose the book Laurinda by Alice Pung (which I’d never heard of, but it’s set in an exclusive school for girls, so it fits the theme of school perfectly!)

Welcome to the October monthly link-up for the 2016 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight! Well, it is officially fall. Which means that Halloween is coming, and probably lots of pumpkin spice related stuff—people love that, I guess? And if you live where I do in the northern US, the dirtiest of the four letter words will be here before you know it—snow. 😝 The winner of our August discussion challenge link-up was Jess @ Princessica of Books. She chose Empire of Storms as her prize! Hope you enjoy the book, Jess!

Book Blog Discussion Challenge, Giveaways (Ended) 1

Welcome to the September monthly link-up for the 2016 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight! Where did the summer go??? That’s all I will say about that. I refuse to acknowledge that fall is coming this month. The winner of our July discussion challenge link-up is still up in the air. I know that seems crazy, but I (Nicole) have actually tried contacting multiple people to let them know they’ve won and haven’t heard back from them. That’s never happened with this challenge before since we know most of the participants. Hopefully this last time was a charm? If not, who knows? Maybe you’ll be the next winner to be drawn! (UPDATE: The official winner is Carrie @ Cat on the Bookshelf. She chose Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I asked her to tell us about why she’s eager to read about the fireworks… Read more »

Welcome to the July monthly link-up for the 2016 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight! Well, we’ve done it. We made it through half the year and we’re still discussing! I know things are crazier for a lot of us during the summer, so don’t feel bad if you slip up a bit and don’t manage to post a discussion as often as you meant to – sometimes life gets in the way. Just get right back on the horse and keep writing!  🙂 The winner of our June discussion challenge link-up was Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight! She chose Roadside Magic by Lilith Saintcrow.

Welcome to the June monthly link-up for the 2016 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight! So after June, the year is going to be half over. How is this even possible? Didn’t we just post the sign-ups for this round?!

I love a discussion 😀 The winner of our April discussion challenge link-up was Greg @ Book Haven! He got to pick a book he’d heard good things about, and chose Summer Days and Summer Nights.

Welcome to the May monthly link-up for the 2016 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight! This challenge has really been going strong! I love that it’s April and we’re still consistently getting over 80 discussions posted per month. Sometimes challenges start to lose steam by this time of year, but you guys are still coming up with great topics and doing lots of discussing! The winner of our March discussion challenge link-up was Kaja @ Of Dragons and Hearts! She got to pick a few different books she was interested in and I (Nicole) surprised her with one. I chose The Accident Season by Moïra Fowley-Doyle since I’ve been wanting to read it myself. (Shannon already read and reviewed it, and it was her review that convinced me that I needed to read this book). Actually, I was so excited about the thought of this… Read more »
