Welcome to the January monthly link-up for the 2016 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight!

Can you believe it’s 2016? This past year went by SO fast! We’re so excited to get a new year of our challenge started! Welcome to all our new participants and welcome back to those of you who are returning!!

The winner of our November discussion challenge link-up was Jamie @ Vailia’s Page Turner! She chose By Sun and Saltwater by Kate Avery Ellison as the book she’s thankful for (and the book she won). She says,I was very lucky and fortunate to have the chance to read the first book. I am thankful for the chance to continue the series and for being introduced to this amazing underwater world.”

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!

If you need some ideas for discussion ideas this month, try out one of these topics:

  • Your 2016 reading and blogging resolutions.
  • Which two characters from two different books would you love to see together and why?
  • What are your favorite types of posts to read? Love reviews? Deep discussions? Lighthearted observations? Funny quizzes? Top Ten Tuesdays? We want to know!
