Win free books!

Okay, Jackie at Literary Escapism has dreamed up a really fun mini-challenge for the month of February. Anybody can play. You don't have to be a blogger.

Basically, you read and review at least one (but you can review up to 5) books written by a new-to-you author from the League of Reluctant Adults (a crazy little cabal of which I am the newest member. Yay!)

Current roster: Mario Acevedo, Michele Bardsley, Dakota Cassidy, Carolyn Crane, Molly Harper, Mark Henry, Stacia Kane, Jackie Kessler, Caitlin Kittredge, J.F. Lewis, Richelle Mead, Kelly Meding, Nicole Peeler, Cherie Priest, Jennifer Rardin, Kat Richardson, Michelle Rowen, Diana Rowland, Jeanne C. Stein, Anton Strout, Rob Thurman, and Jaye Wells

Rules, in a nutshell:
  • You read and review 1 book from a League author you haven't read (or as many as 5 if you want more chances to win) during February.
  • Post the review on a blog, B & N, Amazon, Goodreads, wherever (post the review twice for an extra entry, so you could get up to 10 entries if you are an ambitious reader and poster.)
  • Tell Jackie at Literary Escapism, of course.
At the end of the month, SEVEN randomly chosen winners will get to choose 5 books each from a giant list of book prizes. Books, sets and ARCs from some of my fave authors! The prize books will be flowing like mad. (Check out the list of book prizes!!!)

Mind Games won't be out in time for this challenge, but you could win Mind Games ARCs - two are up for grabs. Right now 30 people are signed up, so the odds of winning one of the seven multi-book prize packs are very excellent. Again, rules are here.

That really has to be about the best group blog name ever. :)

Oh no, I do not have a single book by those authors! (well I have read Mead).
But I am waiting for my Molly Harper book

YAY I have a book from an author on the list: Diana Rowland's MARK OF THE DEMON! Am going to read and review that one in February now.

Great incentive to get some books of the TBR!

Well, if I had an ARC of certain person's debut novel, I could read it for the challenge--with a Feb 28th review date or some such.

*innocent yet hopeful face*

Thanks for the heads-up Carolyn!!

I just went over and signed up. Even though I might be participating in too many challenges right now.... Is your book coming out in time for this challenge? (of course I could have just looked, right?)

Oh, am sure I've got a Kat Richardson book on my TBR list... *races off to check*

Fun mini challenge, and I do love the blog name!
