With Halloween right around the corner, I’m extremely excited to announce a new project that I’ve been working on with Kathy over at The Novelty of Life!
For several months, Kathy and I have been wracking our brains for a creative way to incorporate the holidays into our blogging – we wanted to see more festive posts, holiday-themed book recommendations, challenges, and read-a-thons, etc. Noticing the relative lack of these holiday-related components, particularly in the book blogging community, we concocted a solution that quickly adopted the name “Festive Reads.”
Festive Reads is a collection of specifically holiday-oriented read-a-thons, bookish mini-challenges, prizes, giveaways, etc. that will be held four times per year. These read-a-thons are open to readers/bloggers/booktubers of any age, reading interests, locations, etc. and are meant to be a non-imposing form of celebrating the holidays with others who share a similar passion for reading.
Our first read-a-thon, All Hallows’ Read, begins this Sunday at 12:01 am, and it would mean the world to us if you could spread the news! More information and sign-ups for the read-a-thon can be found on the Festive Reads Blog.
