Some August Book Blogging Events
July 27, 2011 23 Comments
There are quite a few events taking place in the book blogging world next month. I’m taking part in the first three, but found a few others that I thought you might like to know about, too. For most of these events, there is still time to sign up .
UK & EU Summer Hop
It runs from Monday, August 1st to Monday, August 8th and there are many blogs giving away book related items to people in Europe.
I’m taking part with a nice book from my just-read pile! More information here.
Sizzling Summer Readathon
Sounds good to me! My TBR is massive (by my standards) and some reduction would be so welcome. So, I’m in! The more the merrier, so do join me!
Hopefully the weather will be better than what it’s at the moment, so I’ll be sitting in my garden chair reading in the sun!
.Find out more about the read-a-thon here!
Georgette Heyer Gems
Stiletto Storytime is making August a month of Georgette Heyer gems. She has several guest bloggers appearing on her blog, of which I am one.
You can find me there on August 17th. I’ll post a note on my blog about it on the day to remind you.
I’ve already read my gem: Devil’s Cub which was a really fun regency romance, full of adventures. You can read all about it in August in my guestpost!
Read My Own Books Month
A month of books that you choose (although there is leeway for a certain amount of other books). Check the announcing post here.
I’m not sure yet … I do have several ARCs that I’d be happy to get out of the way in August, actually. 🙂
Ultimate Reviewers Challenge
The Ultimate Reviewers Challenge is organised by For What It’s Worth and two other blogs and is all about writing reviews: link each book review that you write in August and you are entered to win a prize.
I did this last year, but found very few of “my own crowd” were doing it, so I felt a bit lonely. I think I will skip this time, but maybe it’s something for you?
Summer Giveaway Hop
I Am A Reader Not A Writer runs giveaway blog hops very frequently. The next one is the Summer Giveaway Hop, taking place from August 1st to August 7th. More information here.
There are already over 300 blogs signed up. Many of them are Young Adult blogs. Not my main genre, but I’ll definitely have a look and a hop!
August will be a busy month! Are you joining in with any of these events?
Do you know any others that I should mention?
