The Ultimate Reviewer's Challenge has started!!






 
Grab our button!!
 

IT'S HERE!

Karen at Karens Addictions, Tiger at Tigers All Consuming Books, Lena at Addicted 2 Novels, and I are co-hosting an event throughout the month of August called the Ultimate Reviewers Challenge!

It's simple! FIRST - Sign up HERE! Write a review and link it to the Mr. Linky below! But first, a few rules...

Rules:
*You must sign up HERE first!
*Enter the link to your review post- not your blog homepage and please enter what book you reviewed. *Example - For What It's Worth (Bring on the Night) * So people can find your reviews easily.
*These must be real reviews, meaning more than just a couple of sentences describing the book. We'll be checking to make sure you're posting legitimate reviews!
*No one review can be posted twice on the same blog. That doesn't mean you can't post the same review on each one of our blogs, just not the same review twice.
*The review must be written in August. No using reviews you've already written!
*You must be a blogger to participate.
*There will be 4 Ultimate Prize Pack winners! One person will be picked from each of the hosting blogs at the end of the event.
*Contest ends August 31st at midnight, CST.
*The challenge is open INTERNATIONAL bloggers!
*Rules and regulations are subject to change depending on current situations. Don't worry, you'll be informed.

The Prize: At the end of the challenge, one lucky reviewer from each blog will receive the Ultimate Prize Pack. The prize packs are different, depending on the host. Here's what will be in mine so far. (Items will be added throughout the month!)

Books:
-Eternal Kiss of Darkness by Jeaniene Frost - *signed
-Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols
-I am Number Four ARC by Pittacus Lore
-Faithful by Janet Fox
-Notes From the Blender ARC by Trish Cook & Brendan Halpin
-Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins - *with a limited edition stamp 
-Raised by Wolves - Jennifer Lynn Barnes - *signed
-Knight of Passion - Margaret Mallory *JUST ADDED!
-13 to Life - Shannon Delany *with signed bookplate and bookmark *JUST ADDED!

The following books were donated to the Prize Pack by by Heather from Darkly Reading! (Thanks Heather!!):

-Birth of a Killer - The Sage of Larten Crepsley
-The Outside Boy by Jeanine Cummins

Swag:
Specifics TBA - LOTS of bookmarks,bookplates... including Jeri Smith-Ready, Maggie Stiefvater, and more

Throughout the event, we'll also be hosting mini-contests, interviewing some of your favorite authors and bloggers, and adding more books to the prize pack, so be sure to follow our blogs!
Start reviewing & linking!!

  11. About to post my first review of the month and link to you on this page....my question though - do I link each of my reviews of the month to THIS particular post on your blog? Or should each review be linked somewhere else? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  12. aLmYbNeNr - Link your review here (be sure to include your blog name & book you reviewed in the "your name" box.
    *You can link this review here and also at Lena's, Tiger's & the other Karen's blogs (links at the top of this post)that way you'll be entered for each of our prize packs!
    *Next review - do the same thing and keep going for the whole month of August!
    *All reviews will be linked on this post.

    Make sense?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yup! I linked to two of the other blogs already, but didn't think to put the name of the book I reviewed. It does take you directly to the review though. I'll remember to do that from now on!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Question: Are we just posting one review for the challenge? How many reviews are we supposed to link?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Kelli - You can post as many reviews as you want as long as they meet the rules listed above!

    *You can link your review here and also at Lena's, Tiger's & the other Karen's blogs (links at the top of this post)that way you'll be entered for each of our prize packs!

  29. EEK! It's going to take all your spare time to read all these reviews, Karen!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Just linked my first review- I read and review a lot- I hope I'm doing this right.
    Question: If I link to my review here, will it show up on the other's host's sites, or must I link on each site individually?
    Also, what criteria are you using to judge your Ultimate Reviewer? Is it sheer number of reviews, quality of the review, or a random selection (as long as it's a legit review?)
    Thanks again for hosting this!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Just linked my second review.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Maria - Yes, you have to link your review on each site individually to be entered into their contests.
    At the end of the month we will be using randomizer to pick the winner from all the reviews posted.

    Thanks everyone for linking!!! I'm reading them all....
