26 Posts Book Blogging Challenge Introduction
Welcome to my 26 Posts Challenge idea for book bloggers! In an effort to consistantly create content on BA I thought I would take part in a 30 day blogging challenge (I have to mix it up or else I get bored), but realised I don’t want to, nor do I have the time, to create a post every single day. Instead I decided to attempt to create a post once a week with content other than a review.
At first I thought why not do that for 30 weeks and then realised that was close to six months, so why not 26 weeks instead? Then I thought what if other bloggers want to have a challenge to keep up with blogging, but also don’t want to blog every single day? This is why I have come up with the 26 Posts Book Blog Challenge and am sharing it with everyone. This challenge has a focus on books, book blogs, and personal topics scattered througout.
How it Will Work
If anyone else would like to join in than here’s how I’ll be going about it;
- Topics: Prepared and shared beforehand (all at the end of this post). You don’t have to wait for me to post to prepare!
- My Posts: My posts for the topic will go up every Sunday.
- Your Posts: You can go ahead and post your topic answers any time during the week after my post or wait, with bated breath, to share on the same day as me.
- Sharing: If you want to share a link to your post feel free to link up in the comments.
- An Important Side Note: Please refrain from targeting individuals, bullying, or slandering in your posts. Share your opinions, but keep it diplomatic if anything negative comes up so this can be, and stay, a fun challenge.
Easy! I think I’ve covered everything… My first post will be going up on the 14th of April, so if you want to join in, you can start preparing! Continue reading
IT’S FREEBIE TIME! AGAIN!
For the second time in one week, lucky ducks, I have a giveaway for Australian readers (don’t worry international readers, I have a freebie coming up for you as well). Would you like a chance to win a copy of Yann Martel’s Beatrice and Virgil? I’m going to assume that was a yes. I bought a copy a few months back and then realised I already had one. What do I need with a spare copy? Seriously? One lucky reader will get an unread paperback copy of Beatrice and Virgil by Yann Martel, which I reviewed last year.
Beatrice and Viril
Fate takes many forms. . . .
When Henry receives a letter from an elderly taxidermist, it poses a puzzle that he cannot resist. As he is pulled further into the world of this strange and calculating man, Henry becomes increasingly involved with the lives of a donkey and a howler monkey—named Beatrice and Virgil—and the epic journey they undertake together.
With all the spirit and originality that made Life of Pi so beloved, this brilliant new novel takes the reader on a haunting odyssey. On the way Martel asks profound questions about life and art, truth and deception, responsibility and complicity.
Interested? All you have to do is fill in the below form before Tuesday the 19th, 12pm AEDST. I won’t be announcing the winner here on BA so it can be a surprise. Don’t worry about sharing your details with me, I only need them to make sure the winner gets the prize and after that I’ll delete all your details. No one else will see them. Continue reading
IT’S FREEBIE TIME!
To all my Australian readers, would you like a chance to win a copy of Maria V. Snyder’s Scent of Magic? I bet you would! Thanks to HarlequinTeen Australia, one lucky reader will be getting a paperback copy of Maria V. Snyder’s newest release, the sequel to Touch of Power.
Scent of Magic
(please be aware that there may be spoilers to the first in this synopsis).
As the last Healer in the Fifteen Realms, Avry of Kazan is in a unique position: in the minds of friends and foes alike, she no longer exists. Despite her need to prevent the megalomaniacal King Tohon from winning control of the Realms, Avry is also determined to find her sister and repair their estrangement. And she must do it alone, as Kerrick, her partner and sole confidant, returns to Alga to summon his country into battle.
Though she should be in hiding, Avry will do whatever she can to support Tohon’s opponents. Including infiltrating a holy army, evading magic sniffers, teaching forest skills to soldiers and figuring out how to stop Tohon’s most horrible creations yet: an army of the walking dead—human and animal alike and nearly impossible to defeat.
War is coming and Avry is alone. Unless she figures out how to do the impossible…again. Continue reading

Hello my fellow book lovers! Long time no… see? My last, non-scheduled, post was in December. December! Can you believe it? Now it’s February and I figure it’s about time I began posting again. I have several posts and other things coming up for you all, but first I’ll start with an update on what happened in December.
P.S. I have decided to incorporate the above because I know every reader is different, have different amounts of free time, and thought it might make it easier to find what is relevant to you and what you want to know in each news post. Continue reading
