Welcome to the August monthly link-up for the 2021 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight!

I can’t believe this year is already half over. It’s a little surreal, honestly. I’ve been very lax in posting discussions lately, but I’ve been enjoying reading yours, so keep them coming! (Nicole wrote this but wow does it apply to me too!) 

The winner of our May discussion challenge giveaway was Davida @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog. She got to pick any book with an LGBTQ+ character, and she chose Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin. Hope you love it!

      • 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!
      • Looking for even 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!

Featured Posts/New Rafflecopter Entries!

Comment on either of our monthly link-up posts telling us about a discussion you’ve particularly enjoyed this month, and grab yourself some extra giveaway entries!

Our post of the month for July (as chosen by Random.org) is from Emily @ Emily the Book Nerd Random.org chose 15 TIPS FOR RUNNING A SUCCESSFUL BLOG.” Commenting on that post gives you FIVE extra entries in the giveaway (if you already commented, that counts too!).

Also remember that there’s a new entry to the Rafflecopter: Comment on either of our monthly link-up posts telling us about a discussion you’ve particularly enjoyed this month, and grab yourself some extra entries!

For the August giveaway Nicole thought it would be fun to offer up a pre-order. You can choose any pre-order you want, but definitely check out her pre-order campaigns page and see if there are any goodies that catch your eye. (She’ll provide you a copy of the receipt for your proof of purchase so you can take advantage.) As always, the giveaway is open to anyone that The Book Depository ships to (or, if TBD doesn’t ship to you, you could choose an ebook!). This time she’ll go up to a $20 value. (Do not get used to this, I am poor ? )

Make sure to link up all of your August discussion posts here. This linky and the August giveaway will be open until September 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).

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
