WOW! Has the year flown by or what? I can’t believe we’re ready for another fun filled week where we look back at some of the best of all things books of 2016 and what books we’re looking forward to in 2017. Last year was a blast co-hosting the event with some of my favorite fellow bloggers Jaime from Two Chicks on Books, Rachel from Fiktshun, Mindy from Magical Urban Fantasy Reads! This year sadly Mindy won’t be returning to the event, we will miss her. So this year we’re so excited to add Bridget from Dark Faerie Tales to the team! Also, I have an awesome new blog partner so please welcome Christy to the Tales of a Ravenous Reader Team as well! And always a thanks goes out to our original co-hosts Lisa from A Life Bound By Books and Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic who will not be hosting the event with us due to their busy lives we hope they’ll be back in 2017!
And we have a special giveaway for people who sign up to participate! We’re giving away an ARC pack of some of the favorite books we’ve read in 2016! And a $10 GC to Amazon or The Book Depository for our International peeps!
The event runs for five consecutive days, the last week of the year. Five days of some of our favorite lists and we invite ALL of YOU to join in on the fun and share your lists with everyone too!
Each day of the event we hope you’ll visit one of the hosting blogs and share your list with the Linky that will be provided. Just be sure you follow which lists goes on which day. Speaking of... here’s what we’re doing for this year’s event!
- Monday, December 26th – Best Books I’ve Read in 2016 (Doesn’t have to be released in 2016, just a book you’ve read in 2016)
- Tuesday, December 27th– Best Book Covers of 2016 (MUST be a book released in 2016. Would be best if it’s a book you’ve READ in 2016, but it’s not required)
- Wednesday, December 28th – Best ________ Of 2016 (Readers/Bloggers choice. Please fill in the blank with ONE of these topics – Villains, Contemporaries, Dual POV’s, Novellas, Adult titles, New Adult titles, Love Triangles, Couples, Bad Boys or Debuts. REMEMBER – this list MUST be from books you’ve READ in 2016)
- Thursday, December 29th – Best Book Boyfriends/Girlfriends of 2016 (MUST be from a book released in 2016 and from a book you’ve READ in 2016)
- Friday, December 30th – Top 10 Books I'm looking forward to in 2017. (This list should be comprised of books released ONLY in 2017)
How you do these posts/lists is totally up to you. What books, covers and characters you pick are all your own. The only rules to follow are posting the topics on the dates we’ve provided.
Now, I know what you’re all thinking. That this will be hard to keep to 10. Some of you might like to break the lists up a bit. Working with a Top 10 for YA books and then a Top 10 for New Adult or Adult titles. Feel free to add honorable mentions if you’re also having a hard time sticking to 10. However, with the honorable mentions, please try to keep it to a minimum or it kind of defeats the whole purpose of things.
Our main focus of this event is for YOU to join in and share your lists with us all and for everyone to visit each other’s blogs’ and see what books have made it on THEIR lists.
The event is simple. Follow the dates and list topics as provided and fill out the linky below. This gives us an idea who will be joining us for the Top 10 week. THEN, be sure to come back to one of our blogs on each of the five days and link up your post for that specific day! Just remember, each day will have a linky for THAT Top 10 topic.
Also, you don’t want to miss a day during the event. We just might have some giveaways up our sleeves and joining in the event, keeping up with our and everyone lists just might help you enter to win!
