So we are three hours into the Love-a-Thon and it's time for the first mini challenge :)
Mini Challenge #1! It's time for the first mini-challenge (and your first chance to win an awesome prize!). Since it's a bit early on in the day, we'll make it easy for you. Here's how it will work: There are four categories - best reviews, best book discussion posts, best blog design/layout and best random category (which you get to make up!). Your post should go live at 3 A.M. with 3-5 favorite blogs for each of these categories. There will be a place for you to link up to these posts on my blog and Katelyn's blog (and it's the same linky, so feel free to link on just one of our blogs!). You can then hop around and see who everyone else picked out for this challenge!
The award for best reviews goes to Mist @ Bookaholics Book Club. Mist always has awesome reviews. She manages to be fair and explain what she did and didn't like about the book, adding in her favourite quotes and thoughts on the cover. My favourite reviews of hers are Fever, Under the Never Sky and Need.
The award for best book discussion posts goes to Jenni @ Jenni Elyse! Jenni always has the best discussion posts on everything book related. Some of my favourite posts of hers are Distractions, Audio Books (Love Them or Hate Them) and Time to Move On. She's even inspired me to have the confidence to do my own discussion posts!
The award for best blog design/layout goes to Vicky @ Books, Biscuits and Tea. She recently revamped her blog and I adore her new design. It really fits with her personality, it looks professional and it's easy to navigate and use.
The award for best blog for making me smile goes to April @ Good Books and Good Wine. April has the best writing style ever and visiting her blog always makes my day. She balances snark, sarcasm and raving about awesome books perfectly :)
