Welcome to the May monthly link-up for the 2015 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight!
I can’t believe the year is nearly halfway over! This challenge has been going better than we ever could have imagined – we’ve been having an amazing time discussing books with all of you!
The winner of our March discussion challenge link-up was Silvara over at Fantasy of the Silver Dragon. She chose Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs. I haven’t read the Mercy Thompson series, but Nicole has heard great things about it. (I have seriously never heard of it, but I shall look it up!) Congratulations, Silvara, and happy reading!
If you don’t know what this challenge is all about or haven’t signed up yet (but want to), head on over to the challenge sign-up page to learn more! Even if you’d rather not join, we hope you’ll stop by occasionally to check out the MANY discussion posts that are being linked up here – there’s lots of great discussions going on!
You guys have been coming up with some great discussion ideas! But, if you’re coming up blank this month, try out one of these topics:
- Tell us all about your favorite book boyfriend. What makes him stand out above the crowd?
- Have you ever considered writing a book (or HAVE you written a book?). Tell us about it!
- If you could meet any author in the world and team up with them for a day of fun, who would it be and what would you do?
Looking for more inspiration, or want to see some discussion posts as an example? Check out the discussion posts on Feed Your Fiction Addiction or It Starts at Midnight (click the links to be brought directly to our discussion posts).
Since spring is finally here, this month you can choose any book with a warm weather theme. Maybe a beach read, a summer blockbuster, a book with spring or summer in the title, or just something that takes place in a warm climate – feel free to be creative about what fits into this category. We’re ready to be done with the cold, already! It can be any book that costs less than $17 US. You’re eligible as long as TBD ships to your country!

Make sure to link up all of your May discussion posts here. This linky and the May giveaway will be open until June 7th (to give people a little extra time to link up – just in case you’re disorganized like we are!). If, by some chance, you forget to link up a post this month, you can add it to next month’s linky (but no duplicates, please).
Go forth, and discuss!

Ooh this looks like a lot of fun! I’d sign up but I honestly wouldn’t have the time to commit, unfortunately.
Well, you could sign up, and if you felt like linking a post, that’s fine too! You don’t have to commit to anything, it’s very laid back, whatever you wanted to do, and you could always win a book out of it 😉
HOW COULD I HAVE NOT HEARD ABOUT THIS CHALLENGE? (And the challenge sign up page isn’t working for me… is it just me?)
Yikes! The link isn’t working on this one, since Shannon just copied my code and apparently that link only works on my site. You can find the sign-up page on Shannon’s site HERE.
AHHH sorry! I did copy that part of Nicole’s! Hold on, I shall fix!
It is all fixed now! Thanks for letting me know- this is what I get for copy and pasting 😉
Aahh, this is a pretty good idea to challenge yourself to write discussion posts. I suck at keeping up with challenges these days, although I do want to give it a try hopefully next year 🙂
You should! And feel free to link up- TONS of your posts would count, and you could always win a book too 😉
Seriously, I love this feature Shannon. You know I stink at posting discussions because I never can think up a topic, but this really helps me convince myself to post one once in a while. 😉
Awww thank you! And it IS hard to think up topics, I totally agree! I had a few in reserves and now… no clue what to do next!
This sounds like an interesting feature though I really doubt I’ll have time >.< With school and all, but thanks for the giveaway!
Thanks so much! We do it every month, so if you ever post a discussion, feel free to link it up! That’s pretty much all you have to do, and you get entries 😀
Woot! Another month of awesome discussions!
Aw thanks!!! 😀
Your style is really unique compared to other people I’ve read stuff
from. Thank you for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I’ll just bookmark this blog.
